Some of the sociological factors in the national irrigotion move ment was the theme of an address a couple of weeks ago before the Philadelphia Congress of the American Association for the Ad vancement of Science, by Guy E. Mitchell, an extensiv'c Writer on irrigation and public land subjects. No question before the public today, Mr. Mitchell declared, pre sents more interesting sociological phases than does the national irri gation question in America, not only through the great number of homes to be created by artificially; watering desert wastes, but through the far reaching effect of the working out of a great gov ernment irrigation policy and the general education of the Ameri can people on the advantages of this practice both west and east. The social side of irrigation can be described in the single clause: Irrigation divides and sub-divides land into small home tracts. Irrigated communities average the smallest farms in the world. The west contains thousands of five- and ten-acre farms from which men are making comforta ble livings. The social conditions of some of the most intensely irri gated tracts are, perhaps, the most nearly perfect of those of any communities in the world. Now, the effect of the great gov ernment irrigation works, which are being pushed rapidly forward, will be to create a western empire of new homes and at the same time to incidentally thoroughly educate the people of the entire country on the subject of irriga tion. The consequence will be that irrigation practices will final ly enthrall the eastern farmer. The facts as they exist in Euro pean countries show that irriga tion can be practiced with great profit on land which has sufficient rainfall to grow paying crops. Ir rigation is a crop insurer besides guaranteeing double yields, and when it is applied to eastern farm lands the result will be to divide them into still smaller and better tilled tracts. ■ ■■■■■■■—-.—.—. ■■■■= . The Work of Reclamation Moves Apace. At the recent Irrigation Cong ress held in El Paso, F. H. Newell, Director and Chief Engineer of the Reclamation Service, with sev eral of his aids, was present throughout the session, getting all possible information to assist him in carrying out the great respon sibilities imposed by that law un der which nearly thirty millions of dollars are already available for national irrigation works. The delegates represented all classes and occupations of people, from all parts of the country. They recognized that nearly one hund red million acres of land are capa ble of development in the course of coming years, under the irriga tion act, yet without any direct expense to the taxpayers, since the funds for the purpose come from the sale of public lands and are repaid by the settlers on the new lands put under irrigation. When the work is finished it will have cost in the neighboahood of three and a half billion dollars, but this is only two per cent, on the property values of the nation today. As soon as some of the projects now under way are com pleted the revenue for further work will be largely increased as the sale of lands will be greatly increased. Then the United States will have between the I oceans a home market of greater worth to our producers than if we had the exclusive market of all of Europe and several other countries combined.

Examine the feet often and look for lodgements of small stones. Let the horse go shoeless rather than travel in too long worn shoes. Use the currycomb, but use it mercifully. It’s the dirt you are after, not the skin. Steer clear of bad shoeing; em ploy a skilled blacksmith, and he, even, may need watching. Use a yielding check-rein, never so tight as to prevent the lowering of the head when working. The proper breaking of a colt determines in large part the fu ture esefulness of the horse. No horse should be asked to feed overhead as though he was a nat ural tree-feeder like a giraffe. An old saying is that eggs and colts are much alike, for they must be broken before they can be used. The stiff scrubbing brush the wife uses in house cleaning is a good and merciful horse cleaner. But do not appropriate hers. . So treat the horses that they will be glad to see you come into their stable and not act as though they would like to climb through the roof. Don't urge the steady going farm horse beyond his natural gait when on the road. It will be felt afterwards as a very trying ex ertion. An authority on the subject de clares that many cases of defect ive eyesight in horses are caused by wearing tight collars, which in terfere with the circulation of the blood to the head. The horse, the most useful of all animals, is the one marked for the most of mail’s ill-treatment. Worked to its full capacity, cared for only to the degree that selfish interest prompts, the animal is de livered over as the unprotected object of the uurestrained passion of man. Be kind to your horse and he will work for you without complaint. Manners and American Youth. “The backbone of the American code of hehavior is that when a woman needs help a man should give help. The foreigner’s idea is that at fitting times he should offer incense.” This neat summing up of “the ways of a man with a maid” occurs in a discussion in The New Idea Woman’s Magazine for February on “Why Our Girls Marry Foreigners.” It is doubt ful whether Mrs. Jean Holden, the writer of the article, has hit the only true solution of this per plexing problem, although it is possible that the disinclination of the American man to bow, to open doors and to offer up incense may have something to do with the easy manner in which American heiresses are induced to restore the fallen fortunes of foreign aris tocrats. Yet it cannot but be re marked that the number of wealthy American girls who still marry happily in their native land is sufficient to reassure American youth, and at the same time vindi cate, if it is a case of vindicating, real feeling against a superficial display which may cover a nature lacking in any sterling quality.
