''SALVE AQUAM UAM EX NULIHUS CADET." To tho Editor of Tjik Advoatk: Central and eiieteru Kaunas sufTera not oo much from a dlrtlclenoy of rainfall as from jits irregularity and suspension at the season moHt needed. The rolling lands from the impervious charactor of their subsoil, Ioobo their rainfall almost lmmedlatfly. What water falla upon them is diverted to the Btreams and car ried off. The annual rainfall of the east ern counties Is eatimatod at thlrty-Boven Inches one inch mora than the rainfall of Ireland; the rainfall of the ceutral ro glon at over twenty-four Inches. The re tention of thin water in email ponds, not as reservoirs, for its laborious and ex ponBlve distribution over the land, but for the beneficial climatic change It would certainly produce, presents for practicability and economy, advantages overall ether plans of Irrigation that hftva boen offered. No scientist will dispute that rain clouds tend to fall on regions already containing molBture, while showers of rain following streams of water is a fact of eaneral observation. Western Europe owes ita ample rain fall not to Ita timber, which Is by no means abundant, but to Its numerous rivers and systems of small lakes, which yfold a continual evaporation of moisture. The condition of Florida, on our own continent, sustains this assumption. Madtara and the Capo Verde islands suf fer from drought though surrounded by tho ocean. A dry surface of land is repellont of molature. The rolllcff lands of eastern and cen tral Kansas f urnleb, by their depaeealona and ravines, every facility for tho con Ktruction of small ponds at little expense. Thflr are few quarter sections of land that would not furnish a water ahed of fifteen acres, which would be quite sufll dent to fill a pond of requisite dlmen eionito which the. rainfall might be diverts. The Impervious nature of the subsoil would prevent much lor.aof water by absorption, leafing na'iut of Iti con tents for evaporation. Poijdd of ono lu-re su periled, one on every quarter section of a bolt of land of ono hundred miles In width, eitomliog from the northern to the southern boun dary of the itAte. would furnish abundant and regular rainfall over the legion ho provided. A continuation of the lyttem would carry the rainfall to the Kooky mountains. The effect of a simultaneous construc tion of such ponds would lm Immediate; ono season's rainfall would give them efficiency. Aside from their climatic In fluence In moderating summer and win ter temperature, and thus Increunlng the capacity of the state for raining products that ar now precarious from their ex tremes, they would furnlah facilities for fiah culture, watering Btock and other convenience. Currying water by acqueducts over undulating region would be extremely expemilve, and In many caoeu Impracticable. Tho project of the government's build ing extensive reservoirs for the irrigation of lands that have never been tented aa to their fertility, Is of doubtful expedi ency, when lands already occupied can have their productive capacity inoreaaod by loaa expensive and more efficient means. While the subject of Irrigation is claim ing so much attention, it would be well to consider such plans aa are moBt feas able and inexpensive, and Buch aa could bo carrlod out free from the contingen cies of fraud and extortion by contrac tors. A simple and probably as safe as any other method, would be to allow tho res idents or owners of tho lands to construct ponds of the required dimensions In a substantial manner, paying them for the actual value of the labor and such ma terial as might bo required. The work to bo approved and accouuts audited by a trusty and competent oiucer seiecieu bv the neonle of each township, compon- satlnsr hia services at tho ordinary rate of township officers. h.
