When good weather prevails at

tails of Construetion.
The use of a leveling triangle was
suggested to small Irrigators In Call
fornia many years ago by *a prominent
irrigation enginoeg. It isdtonstructed In
this wa :
The t iree pieces A B, B 0 and C A
are made fast to eaeb other at A, B and
C. The board B D is fastened to the
triangle at right angles to A C. An or

construction of the apparatus will in
sure sufleiept acouracy In the position
of B1 D. Near D, ox) the board Bi D. a
plumb line is made fast. The plumb
bob, like a mason's plumb bob, hangs
In a hole, 4o that when B D Is vertical
the string hangs very near the surface
of the board B 1D. Whei B 1) is exact
ly vertical, A C1 is exactly horizontal if
the angles at ID are true right angles.
The dimensions of the triangle may
be about as follows: A C, 12 feet long;
A D, about 7.feet 8 inches; 0 B3, about
10 feet; B D, about 6 feet long. Other
dimensions will do as well, the oBsen
taal features being the straight board
A C and the board 1 1) at rig angles
to it and near enough to one end of A
C for the map carrying that end of the
triangle to see accurately the position
of the plumb line. The board B 1)
should not be less thnu four feet long
or the plumb line will be too short to
give satisfactory results. It will fre
quontly be found convenient to have a
scale of feet marked off on A C.
In marking on the board 1 D the
line in which the plumb line will hang
when A C is exactly'horisontal consid
erable care is required. Two pegs are
drivon into the ground as far apart as
A and C for these points to rest on.
The highest one is driven into the
ground until the plumb line follows
about the center line of the board B D.
Having marked this position of the
plumb line, the triangle is reversed Bo
that the end 13 rests on the peg where
before we had the end C, and vice
versa. Should the plumb line make an
angle with the first line marked on the
board, then the coret position will be
exactly in the middle between these
two lines. This point should be per
manently marked on the board B D.
In iuing the triangle when the plumb
line pauses through this point the base
of the triangle will be level.
9Ioh Fre. Pastures.
Some. of the calves borni of immune
cows escape tick infestation and con
sequently escape inoculation. When
full grown, or several years old, they
may be taken into a tick infested pas
ture or the ticks may be brought to
thetn by introducing no0w cattle into
the herd. Then they may die of Texas
fever. Many farms in Alabama are
tick tree, many town lots arc tick free,
parts of many farmis and pastures are
tick free, consequently cattle that are
bred and raised in such tick free places
are susceptible to Texas fever. Tick
free lots, pastures and farms are so
made by keeping sill cattle oft thenm for
one or more years, by rotation of crops
and pastures, by burning the grass, by
killing all the ticks on the home cat
tle, by stock law all the year round and
by introducing no new cattle without
first completely ridding .them of ticks.
Ticks do not travel any great distance
(a few. feet only) except when upon
their host. By themselves ticks will
rarely, if ever, cross a read sixty foot
wide. Hence a tick !fifented and tick
free farm may be very near each other
and remain in that condition, providing
cattle and horses are not permitted to
go from one farm to the other except
when these farm animals are free of
tick.-.C. A. Cnry.
Potatoes that have been kept by
banking with earth should not be dis
turbed in the spring untIl about the
last of April. They may then be taken
from the bank and may be stored in a
cellar or a (lark cornor of the barni un
til about one week before planting
time. Then they should be spread upon
the ground where they .will be fully ex
posed to the sunlight. Th'lis will cause
the buds to make a strong, vigorous
growth, which is not brokent off when
the tubers are planted. Permitting the
buds thus to start greatly facilitates
growth after planting. 'rho Cornell (N.
Y.) station has found this method of
procedure to 3work well, much better
than when seed tub~ers are stod in
collars or wvhere they are banked Jum
nmediately after digging. .
