The Benefits ot Underground Drainage.
E. V, Me. C, a correspondent of the
Tiillalioma Guardion, has been urr
iug the establishment of a drain tile
factory at Tullahoma in several arti
cles to that pa per. We give below
his article on the "Importance of Tile
drainage," Inun m lato issue of the
Guardion. Ve hope ur neighbors
will sumicd in getting the factory
-tarted, and that they will find home
good customers among the farmers of
Warren county. Here is his article:
Now us to the benefits of under
ground drainage: The evaporation
of moisture requires the absorption
of an immense amount of heat from
the air nnd surroundi g objects. This
i-; forcibly illustrated by tossing hot
water into the air on a cold morning
If the mercury stands at or below
zero you may take a pot of boiling
water and throw it high in the air
and it will fall to tic ground in s'mall
globules of ice. Cold water will
ometimes fall as cold water. Y hy
U this? Simply the rapid evapora-
tion of a portion of the hot water
ili-itlMfU fmm.rli bo.it from tlirt ro.
maindcr to turn it into ice. In the
romwuiti iiiriu i no evuiiuruiiuu. I
..,.1.1 .1 .. :
.Now, notice a held in which there is
both high and rolling ground and
also some slough or bog. On the high,
dry ground vegetation puts forth
with the advent of spring. In the
wet portion nothing grows until far
into the summer. The heat of the
Min that should have gone to the
development of plant life was all
absorbed in evaporating the surplus
of stagnant water that should have
'run off." After the water has evap
orated the ground is cold and lifeless
for many days until a sufficient
amount of sun heat has been absorb
( d to generate life in the vegetable
.-eeds. Xow, if that, bog has btcn
nnderdrained so that within twenty
four hours after it ceased raining all
the water was carried away several
weeks of sun heat would then go into
plant life that would otherwise have
been uselessly removing excessive
Dry ground will produce from five
to twenty-ifive per cent, more grain
or grass when underdrained from
two to three feet than when not so
drained. Wet ground will double,
uiriboie ana quadruple its previous
production. Another thing follows,
of a dry season (a drought) when
crops absolutely fail on ordinary
land, tile drained land invariably
prouuees an average crop. ny is
this? Simply 'the tile have carried
off all excess of moisture to the depth
of nearly three feet and the roots of
the plants have a warmer soil to
that depth and
ileep into the earth's labatory with
eaxe and increased . vigor , and the
bast of supplies becomes so deep
seated that an ordinary drought does
not reach them. Besides, the subter
ranean passage created by the tile
allow the circulation of a current of
'confined air," which of itself super
induces moisture as one will observe
in a cellar or under a house. The
writer knows of forty acres of land
within thirty miles of Louisville,
Ky., that was purchased in 1884 for
!()0; was excessively tile drained at
a cost of $"50 and then was sought to
be purchased at $2,000, but the owner
would not sell. And so in some
degree is the value of all land, thus

It is the greatest delusion in the

his life is of no consequence, and that
the character of it will not be noticed.
A manly, truthful boy will shine like
a star in any community. A boy

live the truth that there shall be no

Nowadays a social gathering must
have some special reason for being,
or it is voteJ a tame affair; conversa
tion and flirtation are no longer all
sufficient; the mind must be fed. An
information party is among the' la
test affairs of the kind. Two blank
cards and pencils are given to every
member of the company, who thinks
or a question and writes it upon one
of the cards. This done, the leader
e collects the questions on
Tray ana m,(" tnem lI)U(1 ne '
one; to each are given five minutes,
111 " mcn mH evry one is supposed
to write an an'swer on the remaining
card. When all the questions' have
been read answers are called for in
turn. As may be imagined this
causes much merriment as some are
very funny and some are very far
from correct. Each person 'having a
correct answer marks it ten, a wrong
answer, cipner, ana a partially limit
answer, five. If any disputes arise,
t,ie individual who gave the question
decides it. When the counts are ad-
. e prizes uisiriouieu; two
nrst P"zes, ana two "booby" prizes.
rt .en . . i t' i
nomo oi me questions asKea at a re

"What is the height of the tower of
London?" "Where is the most fam
ous bridge in the world?" "Who
wrote the Lamplighter?" "The lady
or the tiger?" These questions in
troduced topics of conversation
which lasted more or less nil even

ic, the guests gradually departed, de
