feet in low places, and only dry dirt
was thrown out, a condition, they say,

Mason City, Jan. 7.—That Cerro Gor
do county Is protecting herself against
future Hoods, which retard crops and
prevent the full returns from hlgh
prlced lands, is evident by the amount
of money spent tills past season In
drainugc In all parts of the county.
Eleven drainage districts have been
laid out, seven of them completed, with
four remaining uncompleted and prob
ably a halt dozen other districts In
the county asking for the same provis
ion to guard against the ravages of
protracted rains for another season.
According to tho figures furnished
by the board of-supervisors, there has
been spent over $:'5,000 for drainage.
Of the eleven districts, the average ex
pense will be from $3,000 to $10,000
each, and with the amount of drainage
yet Incomplete, the total expense will
probably be close to $100,000.
It Is evident that to make northern
Iowa land profitable during a wet sea
son. It must be properly drained. A
good deal of the farm land of this
county Is Hat, much of it has poor
natural drainage, and such land this
year produced little or nothing In re
turn from the crops planted, while on
similar lying land adjacent to It, that
has been drained properly, good crops
crops. The county work has been
largely that of ditching to afford prop
er outlets for a system of drainage In
tlint neighborhood. Next year the
land owners and tho county will spend
much more money than this year.
