Her cool hand was over my eyes Iu a

"Poor, tioublcd brain," I heaitl her
say, as sho rubbed my forehead with
her soft hand until I went to sleep.
It would bo absunl to try to follow

to understand each other, and Helen
promised to marry me. Wo had of

lw more thoroughly pclverlzeil and
lie in better condition for nouritliing
tho growing crops. Air in tho soli Is
necessary as well as moisture, but it
can not penetrate the baked surface.
On drained hind tho plants will scud
tlie'r mots deeper Into tlio soil. Whon
a plant begins to grow in tho spring In
mi iindrnliiuil soil tho roots will not pen
etrate Into tlio cold, owcr noil tilled with
water, but run along through n few
inches of tho dr'er surface. When tiie
dry weather comes iho mm cotnp'ctely
dries this out and tlio plant, having no
other suiiplv-. stops growing. On bind
that has been uiiilerdrnlned In the con
dition described ns most fnvorablo for
Plant grow tli. moist but with nn stand
ing water between tho particles, tho
plant sends Its roots far ami deep.
Tlio reiiinlmler of Mr. Kllppart's
o!utscomlcnscd, moitof which wohavo
touched upon, nro: It deepens tho soil.
It warms tho soil. It cmiJlljes tho tcm
poraluro of tho soil during the season oi
growth. It curries down solublu sub
stances to tho roots of plants. It pre
vents heaving and frcc.lng out. It
prevents Injury from drought. It Im
proves the ipmlity nml and pinntltj-'of
tho crop. It Incrt-nscs tho cllect of
manures. It prevents rust iu wheat and
rot In potnloes.
Ono Important iiuestlon with all
who liavo land that needs drain
ing is tlio co;. Xot that It will
not pay but that it needs capital
to do It. It can nml has frequently
been demonstrated that drainage pay
nnd p-iys well. In very wet reasons it
frequently happens that tho total fail
ure or success of a crop depends entire
ly on the drainage. Dr. Townsend, of
Ohio, stales on this point: " I ono jear
underilrnltied a part of a Held at a cost
of .'fi'i.oO pc acre, and at harvest it
) leltled -'() bushels more per ncro than
the undrolncd part of the field, nml ns
tho crop brought SI. 25 per bushel, tlio
extra jicld paid all tlio oxpenses of
draining, ami loft mo a littlo iu
pjekot." Such instances can bo found
nil over tho country. John Johnston,
of Cicncin. X. Y., nnderdrained a
heavy clay farm that produced a good
crop of wheat only in the most favor
able seasons, nnd inado It so that ho
grow for miiiij- j cars mi nv crago of -10
bushels per acre.
On many farms tho principal ex
pense will bo for tho tile alone, tlio
work being dono by the onllnnry belli
of tho farm nt tunes when oilier work
Is slack. Tho plans must bo la'd nt tlio
outset so as to do no superfluous work.
When the outlet is Iked and the lino
established for tho main drain, there is
tho place to begin; nnd bo sum to mako
this drain largo enough so ns to answer
tho purpose during heavy falls of ralu
when it Is most needed.
Many who have put In drains have
found dining the laie wet woather that
their mains were not large enough, and
had thev to do the work ovur, mid with
their present experience, would put
down tile wllh nearly double capacitj'.
There Is not a great ilifl'eronce in the
slzo of the tile, to make this dillereiice
in capacity, slnco t lit) latter is ns tho
square of tho diameter, and therefore- a
six-inch tlio lias more thnn twice tho
capacity of a four-Inch tile, nnd tho
work of hi) Ing would bo but a trifle
greater. When the line for the dril'n
is established, a good start can bemndo
In -the work with a good team ami a
skillful plowman. So also can much of
the filling bo dono In tho same way.
Some directions for digging and laying

Wooden Wilier Vines.
For coiivejing short distances (less
llinu lifieen roils), and where tho
amount deslud Is greater than can bo
siimillcil bj' a hnlf-lnnlt pipe, wooden

prevent splitting when placed together,
and to pretent the tubes bursting when
