Experience shows that all persons are not equally susceptible to medicine. Many are benefited from the first dose of "77" and grippe passes off with little or no inconvenience.

If I were going to irrigate tea " acres of level land, I would make my reservoir in the center extend-r ing from one side to the other, ex cavating about twenty feet wide raising the embankments four feet above the level. After the excava tion was completed I would thoroughly pulverize the inside sur face of the reservoir, then let in' water sufficient to make a stiff mortar, with which I would puddle the bottom and sides of the part excavated. The embankment -will not need puddling as it will be s-uf- ficiently solidified by the process of placing it. I would then situate a twelve foot vaneless folding mill at each end of the reservoir, with a four inch cylinder and a two inch discharge pipe, and would connect a float to the throw out wire of the mill, so that when the reservoir is full the mill will go out of the wind, and when the water recedes it will commence operating again. At intervals 6t two hndted"feet I wouldT locate at either 'side of the reservoir, box outlets, not less than four inches inside dimensions. which should be six inches above the level of the land to be irrigated, and connected with the elevated ditches. The elevated ditches must be at right angles with the reservoir and the crop planted at right angles with the ditch. The water should be per mitted to run to the end of the ele vated ditch, then open it between the rows to be irrigated; .the flow from a four inch stream of water will carry force enough to extend to the end of the rows. When suffi ciently watered dam up the elevated ditch and open up the next two rows, and so continue until that division of the land is properly served, and you will then know how to treat the balance.
