The Gandy Pioneer has this to
say of a gentleman well known in
this city who is now living just
over the county line in Custer coun
ty: "C. C. Babcock, of Logan pre
cinct, lias built a dam across a
canon on his farm for the purpose
of retaining the water that falls
during the spring on about 100
acres of prairie land and will use it
later in the season for irrigation.
From this reservoir he expects to
irrigate about thirty-live acres of
cultivated land. The dam is forty
feet wide, twenty feet high and 378
foot long. He expects to increase
the height to twenty-four feet. Mr.
B. has had but little 'expense in
building this dam. the only outlay
except his own labor being for about
650 feet of lumber. He owns a sec
tion of land and expects to build
three more reservoirs on his place,
if the one already built proves a
success, which will enable him to
irrigate 200 acres. Almost any
energetic farmer in this county can
build a similar reservoir
experiment made by Mr.
will be watched with
- The following from the Kear
ney Hub might be of benefit to
many of the farmers in Lincoln
county as a suggestion in case
other means are not devised to get
seed: "Sheriff Nutter spent part
of the week in Lexington. On his
return he reported that Dawson
county was opposed to voting bonds
for seed and feed. He says that
the farmers of that count- are plan
ning to solve in a practical way
supplying any shortage in seed and
feed that ma- exist. They are
forming neighborhood clubs of ten
or twelve farmers, one or two of
whom is appointed as an agent to
act for the club in supplying the
shortage. He may arrange to
secure from elevator companies the
seed and feed needed for the whole
number, binding the members ot
the club in the ordinary way, or he
may solicit the supply needed from
friends in eastern states. The
clubs of farmers who are taking
this course are full of resources and
are not worried at all over the pros
pect of the coming year."
The Kearney New Era, a pop
ulist paper contains the following
misinformation. As a reliable
source of news it is only equaled by
its North Platte namesake: Lin
coln county is governed by a board
of supervisors, the same as in this
count-. Error No. 1. At the
last session of that body they
awarded the legal publishing and
tax list at full legal rates to one
newspaper. Error No. 2. Lin
coln county is a populist county.
Another horrible example of party
fealty to a populist newspaper."
Concerning laterals for irrigat
ing purposes the Irrigation Age
says:- A fall of one foot in a hun
dred feet is as much as is usually
needed, and will give a velocity of
two or three feet per second in farm
furrows, depending on' how much
smoothing is done with hoe or drag,
and this is as fast as the water will
run without washing. Less fall
gives less speed about in proportion.
The capacity in cubic feet per sec
ond is found by multiplying the
water area in square feet by veloc
ity in feet per second. Main
lateral along farm fence should be
made permanent, and should be
broken, for taking water out, at
points only. Small laterals may be
torn away as fast as land is water
ed, beginning at the farther end.
In general, laterals are built up so
that the water is above ground.
Attention has been called to ex
periments in soil tillage which
showed that plats cultivated one
one-half inches deep evaporated
2.000 pounds less of water daily
than plats having no cultivation.
On a heavy clay soil this difference
amounted to 4,000 pounds per day
per acre. On a light garden soil it
amounted to 2,500 pounds daily per
acre. Referring to the influence of
salt and plaster on the evaporation
of water from soil, it has been said:
"A mixture of equal parts by
weight of salt and plaster applied
to the land at the rate of 4.000
pounds per acre conserved the
moisture of the first four inches to
the amount of fifteen tons of water
per acre; that is to say, the soil
which had been treated with this
mixture contained about two weeks
after the mixture had been sown
fifteen tons of water per acre in the
first four inches more than the ad-
j joining plats which were not treated.
This amount of water, it is true, is
not large, but it was large enough
during a drouth, when the experi
ments were conducted, to furnish
enough moisture to the growing
oats to be easily discernible by the
growth of the plant. There is not
the slightest doubt that a weekly
surface cultivation of orchards
from June until the last of Aujrust
greatly conserves the water in the
soil, while at the same time culture
sets free plant food, keeps the lower
strata of the soil cool and moist.
Wherever the conditions do not for
bid surface cultivation it should be
practiced extensively in orchards
for the three-fold purpose of con
serving moisture, preparing plant
food and shading that portion of
the soil which is occupied by the
roots of the growing plants."
Capt. Casey on alfalfa pork pro
duction: "After I got pure bred
Berkshires I made double the money
I did out of scrubs. I have two
five acre fields of alfalfa, so that I
can pasture my hogs in one while"
the other rested and was being irri
gated. One year I raised 385 head
pon ten acres of alfalfa pasture and.
at fattening time, after I had fed
them seventeen days on shorts and
alfalfa hay they weighed from 150
to 300, dressed weight. Many of
these got to 150 pounds in seven
months. Shorts and alfalfa hay
are. I think, quite equal to corn for
giving the finishing touch to pork.
The hay ought to be the first cut
ting and carefully "cured so as to
preserve all the leaves. The shorts
cost me one dollar per hundred
pounds, and I mixed 100 pounds
with 500 pounds of alfalfa hay,
which should be chopped. You
must be careful and have a good
high border between your two fields
for if the water comes into the
patch when the hogs are feeding
they cannot resist the temptation
to root into the cool moist earth.
At first I had a difficulty in pre
venting the animals from rooting
up and eating the alfalfa roots.
No amount of rings would prevent
this and ultimately I had to cut the
hard gristle of their snouts, for
which, you know, a special little
machine is sold. Fresh drinking
water is essential, as hogs will not
thrive on dirty water any more
-Ex-Editor," in the Philadelyhia
Inquirer, says: "The man who is
looking for an easier job than the
one which now occupies his time
will make a great mistake if he
adopts the newspaper business. In
many respects it is a very fascinat
ing occupation. But it is a con
stant drain upon the vital forces.
It demands constant endeavor and
exposes to the keenest temptations.
It calls for the continued exercise
of the utmost wisdom, and it is
continually presenting the judg
ment with ultimatums that must
be answered at once, It requires
of its slave the widest possible
general knowledge concerning men
and things, and it no less insists
that there must be no decrease
from day to day in the strenuous
endeavor to produce a newspaper
that will interest and in inform the
J Hershey & Go's.
That the blood should perform
its vital functions, it is absolutely
necessary it should not only be
pure but rich in life-giving ele
ments. These results are best
effected by the use of that well
known standard blood-purifier,
