Rolitioa Tidal Waves.
Politics present the same Wave phe
.nomena as characterize large bodies of
water. In either case an impulse at
any one po~it sends ever widening
undulations over the whole surface,
any one spot being alternately In the
crest and the trough of the wave. The
November election sent a huge wave
,of Republican exultation followed by
a trough of Democratic depression
over the land. Complications in
Washington have caused another im
pulse, and this time Democrats ride
the crest. It takes just about three
months for one wave to catch the oth
.or. it the country and in sequestered
localities the November wave is still
exerting its influence, and assertions
are heard that the Democratic party is
dead and the South should cut off from
it, while to those posted up to the
latest time such talk is absurd. Four
months from now the tide may change
again, and a Republican wave be sent
from Washington in its turn to chill
those who, in the baockwoods, ivill
then have just heard that the Demo
crata have whipped the Republicans
in the deadlock. And so it w-li go
on to the end. It would be inter
esting to have a political weather
bureau established at Washington to
take political observations at different
points in the United States and to pub.
-ish diagrams showing "high" and
"low" barometer, or where the creel
of the wave is, avid where its trough.
Avs rar as iwantield is concerued (we
hope our readers will not be bchind
the time.. Let them not go about
croaking, for the party at large has
gotten over its depression and is njow
anore defiant than over. It is now
riding the crest. Let noneo of its Rip
Van Winkles 'be found water-logged
In the trough.
The Week in Washington.
Thme Senate has at last practically
abandoned the Gorhami-R idd leberge r
contest and gone to work. This was a
substantial victory for the Demnocrats,
who, feeling that they had the right
en their side, persisted ins upholding
it, until the ,pressure of accumulated
business broke through the damn erect
ed by the Radical caucus and comnpell
edl the "constitutional majority" to
back dIown. Next to the breaking of the
deadlock, the chief sensation was the
withdrawal by Garfild of' all the New
YorIk uominamtions except that of Ro.
bertson. When the batch was tirst
sent in it embraced followers of Conk.
ling as well as Robertson. The Re.
publican caucus, in breaking up the
desadlock,.agreed among themselves to
consider only such nominations as arc
no opposed by at least one Repubil
cia Senator from the State affected by
fhe~ nyoItmnat. As Conkling and
1;tt botht favor the confirmation ot
the Conklingites, Garfield saw that all
of Qese might get In while Robertson
was left higrh and dry. To p~revenI
this. he withdrew all the other nomi
nations so as to compecl the considera
tion of Robertson's case first, as much
as intimating that it would deterine
the fate of all the rest. This unex.
peCcted sti tfeing of' the President ial
backbone has pleasecd imany, notably
the Democratic party, which, as a
mass, detests Conkling, personally,
and as the embodinment of Grantismn,
Conkling oxpresses confidence that he
will in, while lilaine has telegraphed
to Robertson that success is certain,
All depends upon the action of the
Decmocrasts, and it is believed that a
majority of them will align thiemselves
on the side of the adminimstration.
The star route controversy has un
earthed the faict that during the last
campaign, after all the departments,
including the scrubbing women, had
beeni drained of every cent they could
raise, the Republican prospect was so
gloomy that Garfld was constrained
to write to a committeeman asking
him to see Brady anid get himi to de
something, whereupon Brady bull.
dozed the star route contractors out 01
tweny-fve houanddollars, and
planationa is that he intended an jindi

In our own State little has been done
in the way oflrrIgation, except on tihe
rice lands principally of the tide belt.
These are flowed by the rise and fall
of the tide, regulated by trunks, and
the writer has often been surprised
that these lands were not winter crop

rice crop was removed. By the free

The cost of constructing water mains
wonld be comparatively little in this
From the foot of the falls to the foot
of the mountains there are thousands
of acres that can be overflowed. The
construction of iains is here more
costly, and requires more engineering
skill. From the turbid streams of the

would thus be more valuable than that.

valuable than that of the tide region.
To take up a stream and divert it
from its channel oi an extensive scale
Is the work of the engineer. But there
is one method that does not require a
v; a' amount of enine.miig skill. We
know from practical experience that
the mains should not have a fill of
over one to four inches per mile. At
the head of such main should be a
carefully constructed lock or gate to
regulate the amount of water flowinig
into it. Such mains should be wide
rather than deep. Have over-bank
wastes of rock or wood to throw off'
accumulating surplus rain water at
From the mains, branch mains and
service ditches must be constructed,
and the latter arran ed to throw out
the water as desire<.
The water can be supplied in two
ways, either by broadcas t floodi ng
which if done should be expeditiously
executed and over at once-or by
sluicing or running throughi turrows.
The latter phm) would perhaps be the
cheapest and best for most purposes;
The miains and service ditches, once
constructed, the levels of the lands to

and marked, anmd once donie prioperly
it is arrranged forever', and without
fujrther ova euen1 wVold be the
procss of a general system of- Irriga
tion which r'eached beyond thme lanids
of a single proprietor-which is not
likely sootn, if' ever, to be practised
Every' farum, though, of a few huni
dred acr'es has on it a limited amount
of' land, perhaps from 2 to 10 ner cent.,
that can be irrigated, and such ciLan be
dome by the propi'ietor at no great
outlay of money or labor. Uiv (lhe use
of a small stream of water and goodl
manuring, [Dr. Par'ker made ini the
subur'bs of' Columbia 212 bushels of
cor'n on onei.tacre. Many of our readers
have seen this land.
Now, every one-horse farm in our
country ought to puroducme at least 15>0
bushels of' corn. Suppose by the use
of a little brainis, a little manure
AND A LI'JT.E nnIANCII,
this can be (lone on two acres of land.
Suppose it camn he (done, wvould it not
be well to try it? Suppose thie same
small amount of brains, mnanurie aund
branch would produce two bales of'
cotton on one acre. It can he0 done
why niot tr'y it? Or if the same small
quantity of the same things would
produce 100 bushels of oats on one
acire, which they will, why not try it ?
In other' words a full water su'pp.'
will dlouble and trecble y'ouir best cropls.
The cash paid for comme~rcial fertiliz

wvould develop and utilize 'all tihe wa

cash paid for breadstfs S-oml abroad
would each year irrigate .and enonghi

So would thie mioney von scnd to thne
