"Tho simplest unit of measuro 1b

into this, for it 1b simply a unit of
volume. Second foot is tho standard

western states and tho measure of
tho flow renders time an .essential
"A weir Is a measuring device for
determining the How of water In a
given tlmo for n definite distance. It
can only properly be used for struc
tures designed to permit vnter to flow
over the crest with a good fall on the
down-stream side. The,, weir Is used
In Australia, India. Italy, Canada,
Mexico and practically all irrigation
districts of tho United States. An
engineer, Ccsaro Cippolottl, In charge
of an Italian irrigation company, pre
pared a weir which was so formed
that the area of same should Increase,
by an amount proportionate to the
depth of the weir, and balance the
loss due to contraction. This weir
was trapezoidal In form, made of cut
stono, tho crests and sides with iron
plates, permanent measuring devices'
which will do. duty for 'generations.
This is tho form of trapezoidal weir
which engineers know as tho Clppo
lettl. It is preferred by state en
gineers, who stato that when this
form is placed with care it is rellablo
within ono per cent of error. Dams,
when so designed as to causo the wa
ters to flow over their crests, can be
Tho method of distributing wnter
for Irrigation and tho duties of the
olllclais who supervise this phase of
the practice Is clearly outlined by
Professor Olin In tho .following lan
guage: "Most of the state engineers have
found it advantageous to dlvldo the
stato into water divisions, the bound
ary of which shall be determined by
dralnago lines. Each division has its
division engineer, who Is, by vlrtuo of
his position, a deputy stato engineer,
efficient. For each of these districts
In such a manner ns shall make tho
distribution of irrigation water most
efficient. Kos ench of tneso districts
Is a 'water commissioner. He has
direct charge of regulating headgates
so that the water shall bo equitably
distributed among those having water

""" wmiuia ,ii ruijuiruu in in-
Btall measuring devices and tho state
has stream gnugings mado so the
water commissioner may know tho
amount of water he has for his dis
trict distribution. The commissioner
closes all gates according to decreed
rights, In times of shortage, and it
Is criminal offense In practically all
states to ehango u lieadgato when
once set by tho water commissioner.
"Tho commissioner Is further charg
ed with the duty of reporting statisti
cal data' regarding irrigation, In his
district, on streams, reservoirs, ditches
and crops grown. The various water
companies of a district have a wntor
superintendent. Ho lias porsonal
supervision of all the main ditches
or laterals which load to tho Irrigated
lands of all patrons of his company.
It is h'ls business to look after tho
maintenance, repair and cleaning of
said canals and ditches, so that In
tho lr.'lgati;ig season they shall bo
I carriers of water with least waBto
trom loss and seepage possible. To
distribute or measure to individual
users, lie employs water measures,
commonly known as 'ditch riders.'
Each user has measured out to him
his amount of .water, at tho headgato
of tho lateral which controls the Irri
gation of ills lnnd, by tho ditch rider.
The ditch rldor. in turn, recoives his
water from tho district water com
missioner, who turns It from tho
Use Large Plpeo.
One thing that every fanner should
remomber, und that is, when wuter Is
forced through u pipe, the faster it
travels, tho greater the loss In fric
tion. This loss Is equivalent to in
creasing tho pumping head, henco it
Is hotter to use large pipes instend of
small ones; it Is also best to havo d.b
few turns or elbows as possible and
It is simply a question which must
bo decided for each individual plant
as to what, sized pipe will be most
economical. The larger tho pipe the
more it costs, and yet with largo pipo
tho engine may be smaller nnd less
fuel required to pump the required
isiount of water,

them from the fa

that It means, to
fnco tneso "bleak

of tho forests, the
building of the
huts, tho treaties
with the Indians,
tho clU "ompuctB with ono an
other, were all, In a way, acts
of worship. Thanksgiving day In
its conception, and Its inception,
and its observance 300 years ago was
only loss holy than tho Sabbath. A
ball game on Thanksgiving day! As
soon turn uway from .Tuhovuh and bow
down to I3nal and Ashtnroth!
Ye Olden Times.
Read tho sermons preached on,
Thanksgiving day in "ye olden times,"
and compare them with tho political
harangues of today. Shades of Incronso
and Cotton Mather! They believed in
God then. They believed lie gave seed
time and harvest, and they had u god
ly fear of that Judgment upon sin
which might withhold tho blessing
once, just once and then?
It will uot do to say that tho former
days were better than these. They
were not in some things. They burned
tnllow candles then, and wore poke
bonnets; now wo havo tho Merry Wid
ow hat and the arc light. They walked
on .earth then, and Bntlcd on tho sea;
now wo navigate the air, and know
the mysteries of tho submarine. But
the presenco of God was potent to our
fathers, and now well, wo'ro not so
sure about it.
Let us go back to Bethel. Whyi
should not Thanksgiving day be made
a revival day? Not a day of gloom, not
tho sourness of tho Puritan, but his
gladness, for ho had gladness, a real
gladness, the gladness that comea
from an enlightened recognition ofliln
bounty who Is tho author and giver of
every good and perfect gift, tho glad
ness that comes from a willing aedlcn1
tlon of ourselves to his holy service.
Post-Ilabylonlan Judnh affords a
I good typo of the observance of
"Thanksgiving day. You will find tho
story in tho eighth of Nehomlah.
Laughter for Tears.
The people were gathered In a great
open air meeting, and Kzra read tho
I Word of God to them, while their oth
er religious teachers and civil gov
ernors explained Its sonse. At first
they were afraid, and wero moved to
tears, for conviction of sin had gripped
them; but thoy wero exhorted to
laugh instead of weep, for It was a
holy day unto tho Lord their God.
"Go your wny," said Nehomlah, "ent
the fat, and drink the sweet, and send
portions unto them for whom nothing
is prepnred. for this day is holy unto
our Lord; neither bo ye sorry, for the
Joy of the Lord 1b your strongth.';
This tenches us that there is such
a thing ns holy mirth, a Joyous festiv
ity unto tho Lord. Indeed, this was
tho prevailing idea of all tho Mosaic
feasts, 'which were social as well as
religious occasions of the highest Joy.
It teaches us again that holy mirth
Is accompanied by benevolence and
love. What constnnt provision Is mado
for tho poor in nil tho Old Testament
legislation? Nohemlah was tcacbins
nothing now when ho said: "Send por
tlons unto them for whom nothing Is
prepared." God'B idea ot ropontancc
Is, among other things, "to Judgo the
fatherless, to relievo tho oppressed,
and to plead for tho widow."
It teaches us In the third place tha'
the mirth wlilch breeds banevolenro
Is Inspired not by material prosperity
but by the knowledge of the word o'
tho Lord. There was material pro-,
perity In post-lCdenlc times, but it led
not to mirthfulnoBs, nui love, but to
Jealousy and murder. Cain wait pros
porous, but ho killed his brother
Thero was material prosperity in Hi"
dayB beforo tho flood, for men oro
eating and drinking, marrying and gU
ing in marriage, but God saw th.it
"every imagination of tho thoughts '
man's hoart v.nn only ovll continually '
(GcnehlB 0:5). There was matonai
prosperity after tho flood, for in-n
built cltioa and erected empires, but
thoy forgot God until ho scatter, d
them to tho four corners of tho eartu.
Oh, what good news God hns to pour
Into our sad and heavy hearts out of
his precious word, If wo will listen to
It! Lot us gather mound that word
on this Thanksgiving day! Let It tuki
