WATER IN MON'IANA 'l he departtlelt of agr ullllltur. ;t \\ a;l. inl;t.in has supplied the Int , r I')onituii with .oine figure. II regard to I .hat it catll the lity of wsati r in tll"e iiaalll tll o(l laId ill Montana. The object soughlt in making mneasure ientt at the experiment s.ation in this state durinig the year lro etas: to deter inine the quantity of water useld by taruner, in irri~attilg staple crops under usual con dition,, in stleting the tehi.is lor detail work care was taken that they sholuld rep resellt average conlditiuIns. Ithe IaIct was recognized that there is great dliterence in the elhciency of ditches; soiie, by reason of their length and the character of mia terial through which they pass, lose a large perecentage of the volume ol water which passes their headgates. Since it was desired to ascertain the quantity required to irrigate growing crops, the water was measured as it entered the field. In this way the losses rof water by seepage aindt evapoiration were practically lllllninated from lield experimnents which were con ductd at the experiment station at tioze man. lihe land was used printcipally tor the growing of grain, clover and altalta. It should lie noted that the soil consists nt fronm four to five feet or loans and ;marly clay underlaid with an undetermlined depth of gratel and cobbile stones. A tew of the I-' explriincils made at the station Iiiay tie taken as fairly representative. Field No. I in clover, was irrigated twice between May I and September 7. '1 he depth of the water used in irrigation was it inches, rainfall 8 inches; total depth of water received during growth, tg incites. In field No. a. also in clover, the depth of water applied ini three irrigations durlng the growing season was a Inchetes, rainfall 8 inches; total depth received, 30 inches. The yield of clover froum this tield was 3 1-3 tons an acre. An experiment with a held of wheat is reported showing two irrigations, one in June and the other in July, during which the depth of water apblied by irrigation was i.54 inches and rainfall 5 itches, making 19!/r inchles ot water applied to the land during the growing season. the yield was 43 bushels an acre. Lands under Middle Creek canlal, cont prising an area of 3,186 acres, cultivated in grains and clover, received a depth of a8 incites by irrigation and g inches by rainfall, making a total of 37 inches of water used between May I and September So. This, hiowever, is the quantity nteas ured at the headgate and included loss by seepage and evaporation. An interesting experiment on a 4o-acre tract of a 6-year-old orchard on tile Bitter Root Stock farm shows that by four irri gations, between April 15 and Selptembler a, a depth of 18 ilnches of water was ap plied ,to which sih'ul, be added a rainiall of 6 iclit es.., liu?!.Isig a total depth of -'. Inches h if watir Is.lj tippon the orclliard dulrilll the ilasoin. 'rle contllrustions of th' d_'artnment are that "the duty ref water" in many case. illay be nearly dfnbled by the proper care of ditches and jiudiciou' aplplicatici of water. IAHIA COAI.

His reply is as follows: "If all bird life was destroyed from the face of the earth it would not bie possible for man to long sur vive. since insect life would increase so rapidly as to be beyond control of insect ictlth, and they would consutme every greell Ctigi."
