Professor Carpenter'a Illustrative Method
For Laying Oat Ditches and Leveling
the llottora Preparatory to Making Tile
Drains When No Survey Has Been Made.
The illustration here presented gives
an accurate idea of Professor Carpenter's
method for laying out tile drains, as
originally explained by him in The Drain
When no survey has been made Pro
fassor Carpenter twos the plow shown in
the cut to determine the fall and the
grade line. At No. 1 in the illustration
he sets his first cross bar and stakes, so
as to give a depth of four feet. At the
furthest distance that can be seen ho sets
another cro bar and stakes, so as to give
the required depth at that point say
To find the fall lietween these two one
has only to sight over a level of any con
struction, from the first cross bar to the
last, and measure the intersec tion of this
sight line to the cross bar, which will
serve to show if there be any '('all or not.
After finding that there is sutfident fall
between the two cross bars anv number
LAYING TII DKAIXS.
of intermediate ones can 1e set by sight
ing, and accurately, too. Leave these
in nntil the tile are laid under any given
one, and you will find the work done
with all the accuracy needed, and in
much less time than if you had attempt
ed any method which depended on lev
eling the iKittom itself. Subsequently
Professor Carpenter has recommended
the stretching of a cord tight over the
top of the cross bars, and to measure
from the cord to the Ik t torn of the drain
to determine the level required, for the
bottom of the ditch. It is also neces
sary to have a tight line near the surface
of the earth to guide the ditcher in set
tiug the ditching spade. It is desirable
to have the sides of the ditch even and
straight from point to point at top and
bottom, and esjiecially so in the bottom.
The lterkerpiiia; Industry.
The prominence of the lioekeepiug in
dustry is not generally recognized, from
the fact that it is almost everywhere
carried on as an incident of general agri
culture. Every state and territory re
ports bees and more or less honey, nn
ally a hive or a few colonies for each
farmer, with occasionally an extensive
apairy and large production. In some
localities, as in portions of New York,
Ohio, Tennessee and California, where
existing conditions are particularly fa
vorable, apiculture is more prominent.
The aggregate value of the annual
honey and wax product is large, much
larger th:in that of other crops of which
more notice is usually taken. In the
last anunal report of the secretary of
agriculture we are told that it almost
equals the value of tho rice or hop crop,
falls but little short of the buckwheat
product, exceeds the value of our cane
molasses and of Inith maple sirup and
sugar. It largely exceeds the aggregate
value of all our vegetable fillers except
ing cotton, and in 1ST9 was half as large
as the wine product of the year. The
latest official record of production by
states is the return of the National cen
sus fur 1879. It places the honey pro
duction at 25,74:1,308 jiounds, and wax at
1,105,(W9 pounds, making the aggregate
value over f 0,000,000. An excellent au
thority places the nnmlx-r of -colonies of
liees in tho United States in 1881 at 8,
000,000, and the honey product for that
year at SJO.OOO.OOO pounds, the cash value
of the year's honey crop exceeding 50,
000,000. Commenting on these figures
Professor Cook thinks we may safery
add as much more as the value of the
increase of colonies, and we have a grand
total of lrtO.000,000, nearly enough to
pay the interest on the national debt
were the bonds all refunded.
A New Milking Miu-hlne.
Another milking machine has lieen
introduced, this time in Scotland. Brief
ly described this machine is an evolution
of the idea embodied in the bell and suc
tion tulje found in every druggist's shop
for drawing the milk from a woman's
breast. An iron section tule is fitted all
ronnd the byre and aixwe the cows, and
from this an india rubler tnbe descends
to the vessel into which the milk is to be
drawn. A lsJt is hung over the cow's
back, and fiom this lelt the close vessel
into which the milk is to lie drawn is
suspended. Four sejwirate india rubber
tubes about a foot and a half long termi
nate in this vessel, and at the other end
they have tin necks which go on to the
seiarate teats of the cow. They do not
grasp the teats, but fix themselves by the
force of the suction to the ndder at the
root of the teats. The suction force is
supplied by a force pump erected in a
corner of the byre, which can le easily
managed by a boy. The lid of the closed
vessel is of glass, so that the milkmaid
can see at a glance that the four differ
ent streams of milk from the different
teats are coming all right, and this glass
cover is also held on by the suction, and
as soon as the suction force is switched
off the glass lid can be lifted off and the
tubes withdrawn from the teats.
In order to make wheat growing prof
itable a good quality of seed must lie
procured. The provident .farmer will
bear this fact in mind, and when the
threshing is done will not only choose
thA beat, but have it well cleaned and
stored in . dry place.

able results of Teccnt French horticul

Say some dealers who try to sell a sub
stitute preparation when a customer
calls for Hood's Sarsaparilla. : Do not
allow any such false statements as this
induce you to buy what you do not want.
Remember that the only reason for raak
tag it is that a few cents more profit will
lie mada on the substitute. Insist upon
havinir the best medicine Hood's Bar
saparilla. It is Peculiar to Itself.

The Old Way.
Sairey Gamp, whom Dickens
immortalized, used to adminis
ter medicine by clutching the
patient by the throat and when
he opened his mouth to gasp
for breath" phe chucked the
medicine down his throat and
left him to swallow it or strangle
as it suited him. This is too
much the way most people ad
minister medicine to children;
nothing is more pitiable than
to see a little child in the agon
ies of croup, fighting with both
its little hands to keep away
the ill-tasting draught that the
nurse is trying to pour down its
throat. Nothing of this sort is
needed with Reid's German
Cough and Kidney Cure. The
children like to take it, and as
it contains no opium or anything
deleterious there is no harm to
be found even from an overdose.
Children can take it freely.
When the little ones come home
from school with wet feet, and
as night comes on they begin
to grow hoarse and their cheeks
flash, and they show signs of
approaching fever, lose no time,
but give them a dose of Raid's
German Cough and Kidnny
Cure before supper; repeat the
dose before going to bed and
you will be spared the pain of
seeing them in the throes ql
this most dreaded disease of
childhood, besides passing a
wakeful night at theii bed sid.
It is one of the virtues of this
most excellent remedy that it
not only cures every individual
case of croup, but it prevents a
recurrence of the malady.
Reil's German Congh and Kid
ney Cure should therefore be
kept on hand in every house
hold, for it is an absolute
specific for croup and all dis
eases that come from colds.
