IRRIGATE UNDER GROUND.
: Systsm of Distributing Watsr to Plant
Root* Successful In Tsxas.
I One of the most remarkable out- j
growths of the era of reclamation in
; the weßt Is a test that has been made
near Midland. Tex., of a system of
! subirrigation whereby water is fed to
' the roots of plants well under the
'■ ground Instead of having It percolate
. down to them from the surface. The
success of such a system would add
millions of dollars to the yearly profits
,of farms throughout the west because
; of the saving of water in places where
j It Is scarce and the better results to be j
had in the growth of plants.
Systems of Irrigation generally are
i based ou a flow of water In surface
! ditches fed from surface canals. It has
| been found, however, that great waste
! attends this plan both from seepage
' and evaporation. In localities where
i water is scarce these factors are of the
I Agricultural experts for years have
[ been engaged in an effort to perfect a
j system of subirrigation. The great dif
! Acuity to be met, however, lay In the
! plugging of the water outlets when
pipes were laid underground. It is
| necessary that these outlets shall at all
1 times be free If the water Is to be dis
! tributed properly. It is believed that
! this problem has been solved under the
' system in operation near Midland.
The experiment has been carried on
[by wealthy farmers of Kansas, who
\ bought much property In that vicinity.
Their plans were greeted humorously,
! but they went ahead installing their
system. They laid concrete pipes two
feet under the surface on a large tract
; At short intervals in these are inserted
\ plugs having openings the size of a pln-
I hole. Over these holes are laid caps
: which fit over the pipe in such fashion
i that only a little room is left for the
egress of the water and no room for the
< entrance of dirt or roots. It has been \
' found that the water from these holes 1
• spreads to a distance of more than ;
! sixty feet Good crops have been grown
i on the land, and farmers who formerly
scoffed at the idea are now figuring on
installing similar devices.—New York
CLEAN DAIRY UTENSILS.
To Ktop Product* Puro They Should
Bo Sterilized Every Day.
If the dairyman is to keep his dairy
utensils absolutely clean he must ster
ilize them daily. This is Just as neces
sary in the small dairy as in the large
one. The dairyman who milks only a
few cows cannot afford an expensive
equipment In his dairy room. Many
who do a profitable but modest busi
ness believe that a sterilizer Is an ex
pensive luxury. Such is not the case.
A homemade sterilizer may be made
at a cost of not more than $7 or $8.
Go to your local tinner or hardware
merchant, show him the accompanying
cut and tell him to make you a boa:
three and a half feet square of gal
vanized iron, twenty-eight gauge, a lit
tle heavier If he hasn't this. It should
not be of lighter weight. All joints
6hould be riveted and soldered closely.
This will make a steam tight box.

the door, and will hold enottarb steinn

feet square and should be cut to lap

about an Inch over all four sides of the
opening. Ordinary heavy doub'e strap
hinges may be used, fastened with
either bolts or rivets. A bolt and staple
fastener holds the door shut The
steam may be piped Into the top and
one side as shown in the illustration.
A few holes punched in the bottom will
drain off the condensed steam. It
should be turned on slowly ut first and
then gradually be worked up to full
force with thirty or forty pounds of
steam in the boiler. A thorough ster
ilization will be accomplished In from
ten to fifteen minutes. The writer has
used a sterilizer similar to this, which
cost 17.50. and found it to be thorough
ly efficient—Country Gentleman. »

A Great Wheat Yield.
Last year was one of the great
wheat yields in the United States
Nevertheless we are among the low
est among civilized nations in wheat
production per acre. Belgium pro
duced 25 quintals per hectare of
land, Germany 22.0, Great Britian
19.7; whereas the United State*
yielded but 10.8 Russia, Algeria
Spain and India are among the few
Countries that grow less wheat per
acre than we do. In these count riet
of high yield more labor goes in
to an acre, of course, and perhaps
even more into a bushel. It has
been shown in the United States
that a very little more labor intel
ligently applied will increase the
yield more than correspondingly.
More labor on the wheat fields
would mean more profit.
