W. J. Cliain)Mrlain, of Iho Iowa Asrri-
cultural colii-ge, rontributps to Countrr
Oeiitteitiun some prai-tical hints on ilrain-
agp, winch are of gonpral interest. First,
he twls that the mains ought to follow
the natural depressions where the water
runs off upon the surface in wet times.
of course straightening the crooks some
what. If thero h a regular slope like the
roof o a house, only not so steen. the
mains should take the of place the eaves'
roughs, ami the laterals, if anv, should
run straight down the slope as nearly as
may 1. If the fall is very slight, it may
need a fk-hl leveling instrument to lav
out the system. But usually a very wet
ime is the best to locate drains. A fur
row plowed tiien by the eye will work
its own prado or show it.
If you have not a ditching machine
use a heavy working plow to throw tut
tho first eight or ton inches, drive
straight. Bein the Hpade digging at
the outlet m. I work along up the mains
and laterals. The water will show the
level. Permit no dis or depressions.
Ihg ns narrow and true as possible to the
required depth, and groove the bottom
f the ditch with a bottoming scoop of
size adapted to the tiles used. The grade
may be nearly established with the plow
plowing deeper through knolls and
shallower through depressions, then die
wo or three depths of the spade accord
ing to depth required, keeping the spade
at the same angle all the time, and
thrusting it full depth each time. If
there is no water in thesoil to show level.
the surest way is to draw some into the
field, and when your eye or the span
level says your groove is cut straight
and true for a hundred feet or more.
turn in just enough water at the upper
na to test it. ir it stands anvwhere in
long puddles, you must cut down the
high portions until no puddles remain.
Sir. t hatulM-rlain makes the span level
thus: Take three iieces of 1 liv 2 inch
pine batten 8J feet long, halve them to
gether with screws firuily at the ends in
the form of an equilateral triangle. Then
liair way tip from one side, b c, and ex
actly parallel to it, screw on a fourth
piece 1 e (s.v figure). To the side of the
cross piece, d e screw a common 73 cent
spirit level, f g, so that when b c stands
u a level Moor the air bubble shall show
level, and its middle be the middle of d e.
Change the triangle end for end on the
floor, to lie sure your spirit level is ex
actly parallel with the liottom of b c
Then if you want to graduate it raise
b I inch at a time, leaving c resting on
the floor, and mark the brass of the
spirit level for each quarter and half
inch up to two or three inches. Then
raise c in the same way and graduate
the other side.
Before the groove is cut in the bottom
of the ditch this span level may be ap
plied all along, and show the exact fall
per rod. Then the groove cutter can
take out huiups, and the level test its
work. B c is half a rod lone, and so one-
lunrter inch full for its length makes one-
lialf inch fall per rod, and so on. Never
be content unless your level shows some
fall towards your outlet. The more uni
form the fall the better. If you know.
for example, that your fall is only one-
half inch per rod, you must keep your
grade down to about that rate, not vary
ing. or you will have trouble. Begin
ning at me lower emi i tie tendency or a
new hand is to "lose grade." that is. to
work towards the surface. The
level will help prevent this.
A SPAN LEVEL.
The groove should be cut so that the
tiles will fit without rolling, and shall
touch bottom all the way. Lay the tiles
from the outlet up stream, look through
each tile to see that it is clear of obstruc
tious. and lay it so that it will not rock or
wabble. Chuck it up tight against the
preceding tile, and then step forward
upon tt and lay the next.
Lay no tiles that are not hard burned
enough to give a clear metallic ring when
struck with a hammer .and lay nocracked
or broken ones. I-or junctions with lat
erals get from the kiln, if possible, main
tiles with junctions formed, or at least
holes cut for junctions. If you have to
cut with a trowel, use great care and se
cure great ierfection.
Stand in the ditch when the tiles are
laid, and with the ditching spade shovel
in the fine clay (the subsoil last dug out),
and see that it rattles or fills clear down
on lioth sides of the tiles. Tramp very
thoroughly with the feet as you fill, until
you have tilled in some eight inches deep.
The rest may be plowed in by runuing
very long evener and long inside lines,
and having one horse on each Bide of the
lu very compact clay subsoil thorough
drainage requires laterals from thirty
three to fifty feet apart, to drain the soil
rapidly and thoroughly enough to pre
vent damage to cropa after very heavy
rains. W nil fair fall, a tile will drain an
area equal to one-half its diameter (in
inches) squared that Is, a two inch tile
should carry the water from one acre
two divided by two and squared), a four
men- me i our acres, a live men me auout
ix acres, and a six inch tile about nine
acres; the less the grade, the wider the
suction range." and the longer the
drain, the larger the tiles required. A
drain may begin at its lower end with
four inch tiles, and diminish to three and
then to two towards its upper end.
