Although site trembled a great deal, she went bravely on. It was only a short lane leading to the ma n road, and shut in 01 one sitle by a large clump of trees.

Draining land by the employment of tile placed several feet below the sur face of the ground has made bnt little progress in the Western States until within the past few years. The great advantages of this method of draining damp soils were demonstrated in vari ous parts of Europe many years ago, and the system there pursued was in troduced into some of the Eastern States. There was a greater necessity for underdrainage in the West than in the East, for the reasons that the sur face of the land is more nearly le el and the soils more retentive of moisture. It is abo true in respect to many portions of the West that the rainfall is very un equally distribtrted during "the year. There is a great excess during the early part of the season and deficiency dur ing the latter poi-tion. The des'irabil ity of t borough, systematic and scien tific land drainage was acknowledged, but. several reasons prevented its adop t'on. Many farmers were in debt for their land, or for improvements they had made on it. Others owed consider able ior farming implements and stock. Still others were desirous of buying more land in the vicinity of their farms I while it, was still comparatively cheap. Ad these persons hesitated about bor rowing money to improve their places by laying drain-tlla. A farmer xvi)t has jBt gi)l oat of. debt hesitates to plunge in again. He realieei such a relief from a great burden that he is reluctant to assume a new one Farmers who are land-hungry are reluctant to pay out as much money to drain a piece of land as it will t o-t. to purchase another piece of cpHil extent. Besides, many fanners have begleeted to draii. their land for ( want of information on the subject, and on account of a tack of material within easy reaeh. The present is a favorable time fot Western farmers to consider the pro priety of drain ng their low lands. Most of them have money to Invest. Some desire more land, bnt they lind it hard to obtain Intlie vicinity of their home They can do no b-ttt;- than to render the land they have more produc tive by means of drainage. On many farms there are tracts that produce nothing but Qoars grass hat is of lit tie value for sto -k. These low tracts can be rendered the most productive of any on the farm by the judiciou use of di-aius-' i!e. Low land 7-eceive the wash of It hat which lw IbPiMdtr and in time becomes very rich in all t in,- e'e men-is of plant footl. By the use of drain-tile the area of plow-able land can be greatly increased on a large proportion of prairie farms. By the same means the productiveness of much land that can be plowed in favorable seasons can be increased. In many cases the yield of nearly all the culti vated crops can be doubled by the adoption of a suitable drainage. II s farmer Wishes to ra se more than he now does, and has the choice between buying more land and draining what he owns, it is better to select the latter cour e. By so doing he will save fenc ing and taxes. He wiH al0 save much labor. No more plowing and cultivat ing, and but little more labor in harvest ing, are required to produce a large crop than a small one. Drainage in creases the quality as well as the quan tity of crops. It also lengthens ont the season in w; ich the land can be worked. It enables the farmer to plow earlier in the spring and later in the fall. It also enables him to do better work with any implement he uses in the soil. It hslps insure crops against bad seasons. However desirable underdrainage may be, it should not be undertaken without tlue eonsideratkiU. A fanner should learn befpre continences operations how rftueb-tfte' fmprovements are to cost. He should ascertain where he cau obtain tile, the cost at the manu factory, and the cost of transportation. He should alsorlearn how to-dlg ditches. Iny the tile, awl place the earth about th. m. Ditching is an art that requires 4'onsiderabre skill. Many farmers have lost heavily by attempting to under drawn land with the aid of such knowl edge as they have derived from a news papor articla ox a circular sent out by some tile factory. Unless a farmer is rilling to spend considerable time in learning how to do tho w ork properly, and to purchase the necessary tools and implements, he will find it profitable tc emolov the se out the work.

I he windows, especially in houses built as cheaply as possible, let in all aronnd (and particularly where the two sashes meet) an astonishing amount of air, so much that in severe weather It is almost impossible to tnnke the room comfortably warm. By Cheeking this inflow of cold air from without, the same amount of fuel that befoie failed to. make the room warm enough will be so much more effective that considerably less coal or wood will be burned. "Weather strips" of vari ous kinds haVe been invented to be used around windows and doors for t he pur pose to which we have referred. The essential part of these is a narrow strip of rather stiff India-rubber fabric, at tached to a strip of wood or metal, which may be fastened to the window in such a manner that the rubber will cov er the cracks between the sashes and the frames, and elsewhere. These strips are very useful, but are not to be had in all places ; besides, while not very costly, they involve an outlay which many Would gladly avoid. Before the rubber strips were introduced woolen ones were in common Use. The material known as "list" or "listing," the marginal strips being Woven on broadcloth and other goods, is convenient, and costs little or nothing.

Brown paper will answer as well as any, and if the job be neatly done, it will not be onsightly. When no longer needed, the paper may be palled, off after it has been wetted with warm water. One sash rn each room should be left for necessary ventilation, and. some mova ble strip, such as lath, covered with cloth, provided to close its cracks if necessary. A strip of board or plank, covered with some fabric, to be used to close the crack at the bottom of each door, will be found very useful.
