LESS WATER WASTE
Large Volumes Are Lost by Ab
sorption and Seepage.
One of Most Common Sources of Lota
la Poor Preparation of Soil
Too Shallow Irrigation Is
Recent Investigation made by the
experiment station have shown that
the quantity of water which plants
use forms but a small part of that
which Is diverted from Rtreams for Ir
rigation purpose. Largo volumes are
lost by absorption and seepage in the
earthen channels of canal systems.
Similar losses occur In the ditches
which supply farms, and a large part
of the remainder Is wasted in Irri
gating crops The farmer Is chiefly
concerned In lessening the wnste of
water In his supply ditch and on his
farm. In localities where wnter Is
scarce, the supply ditch should be
made watertight This may be done
b lining the channel with cement
concrete, cement plaster, asphalt,
heavy crude oil, or clay puddle.
Flumes ot pipes may also be used as a
substitute for an earthen ditch.
One of the most common sources of
loss of water Is poor preparation of
the surface. When the soil is Irrigated
by flooding from field laterals an un
even surface causes needless waste of
water, extra labor In spreading It over
the surface, and smaller yields The
water flows Into the low places, which
receive too much and may become
water-logged, while the high places
are left without water and the crop
thereon Is dwarfed. The surface be
tween field laterals should be so even
ly graded that water will flow In a
thin sheet over the entire surface, the
excess being caught up by the lowei
Another common cause of waste Is
the lack of attendance Water Is oft
en turned on a portion of a field and
permitted to run without attention for
hours nnd even days On some farms
the Irrigators look after the water for
ten hours nnd turn It loose for the
bnlance of the day. Under this prac
tise the low places receive too much,
the high places little or none, and
s largo part flows olT the field to the
Injury of the road and adjoining
Too shallow and too frequent Irri
gation is another source of waste.
Wetting the surface and neglecting to
cultivate it afterwards may result In
the loss by evaporation of three
fourths of the water which Is applied
In this way. For most plants, and for
ill deep-rooted plants In particular, the
ground should be so prepared that wa
ter would readily percolate to a con
siderable depth beneath the surface
and enough water should be applied
to moisten the subsoil.
Again, in farming by irrigation
thorough and frequent cultivation is
of first importance. It not only pre
vents the escape of large quantities
of soil moisture, but It greatly Im
proves the condition of the soil.
Variety of Feed Best.
As regards the feed, a variety
should be sought. Birds fed on one
kind of grain exclusively will not lay
as satisfactory eggs as those that have
been fed for several sorts. War must
be made against all Insect pests. So
many good and practical methods
have been found that there is really no
excuse for harboring these drains up
on our poultry Income.
If you are to begin a more progres
sive system of farming, If you wish to
Increase the profits of the farm and at
the same time Improve the fertility of
the soil for future crops, attention
must be given to rotation. Now Is the
time to study out your rotation so you
may begin to execute your plan next
More Turkeys Needed.
The turkey crop of the United
States could easily be doubled, and
still be profitable, If the farmers of
the country would give this branch of
poultry culture a little more attention.
So many have the Idea that turkeys
nre hard to raise that they hesitate to
make the venture During the first
ten days or two weeks of their lives
they are more delicate than chicks of
the same age, It Is true, but after that
period they are aa hardy as other

ilies, increase and multiply more rap

Favors Beef Steers.
The difference in price between
scrubs and well-bred beef steera Is
torn $2 to $3 a hundredweight In
favor of the beef steer. This la In
addition to the coat of the feed, which

'cabbage needs much water
Frequency! and) Number of Irrigationa
' Depends on the'' Soil and-Amount
r" of Rainfall.
(By E II. BRNNirrT, Colorado Agrlcui
Few crops are more particular, about
water than the cnbbage. Although It
is a gross feeder it will soon wilt and
stop growing If the soil is dry, and on
the other hand, if the land becomes
waterlogged the plants will turn yel
low and stop growth. The frequency
and number of Irrigations then de
pends OH the character of the soil and
the amount of rainfall. If soils are
light aud gravelly, with good under
dr. linage, the Irrigations must be
frequent and there is little danger of
The harvesting of cabbage is a very
simple operation, as the markets
reached are not exacting.
The wagon is driven into the field,
tin heads cut with a knife, so as to
leave Just enough of the green leaves
to cover the white tissue of the head,
then thrown on to the wagon. Not all
the heads will be ready for market at
the same time, so the fields have to
be gone over twice or three times be
fore all the crop is taken off.
If the crop Is to be shipped the
cabbages are hauled direct to the
cars. After being weighed the cab
bages are either crated, sacked, or
sometimes loaded on to the carB loose.
One of the most serious insect pests
up to the present time is the little
black ilea beetle (Epltrlx cucumerls).
These Insects feed on the stems and
cotyledons of the plants Just as the
seedlings break through the ground.
If the insects are plentiful they some
times destroy all the plants. Growers
frequently fall to locate the trouble
because of the small size of the In
sects and their habit of Jumping away
from the plants when disturbed. This
pest Is particularly troublesome If
the- soil forms a crtiBt so that the In
sects can find protection under the
crust as the seedling comes up.
Several remedies, such as ashes,
ground tobacco stems, lime and insect
powder, have been used with varying
degrees of success. If the Insects are
numerous the only method of prevent
ing the trouble Is to grow the plants
In cold frames where the Insects can
be shut out till the plants are largo
enough to resist the attacks.
VALUABLE WATER IS WASTED
Profits of Alfalfa Growing Can Be
Greatly Increased If More Care
and Skill Exercised.
The profits of alfalfa growing can
be greatly Increased If more care and
skill are exercised. The western Ir
rigator has seldom been able finan
cially to dig his ditches and prepare
his fields in such way as to insure the
most ( fucient Irrigation and the high
est profits. In consequence valuable
water Is wastefully applied to land
that Is In no fit condition to bo Irri
gated. On the large acreage In Irrl
gated alfalfa this amottnts to an enor
mous loss This fact, considered In
connection with the Importance of the
crop, the rapidly Increasing area de
voted to Its growth and the large num
ber of fanners who are settling In the
west and who will he for years de
pendent In a large measure on alfalfa
for a livelihood, would seem to war
rant greater Interest In preparing the
Roil so as to get a perfect stand. We
are not getting enough tonnage from
the acres already In the plant and the
area Itself could be very largely Increased.
Better Understanding of Dairymen.
We are not so much In need at the
present time of new findings in the
dairy business as wo are of the ap

Dairymen in general should gain a
better understanding of fixing desir

that no one individual need carry the
burden of another.
