In a trial the evidence was all in and the plantift's attorney had made a long and very eloquent argument, when the lawyer acting for the defense arose. "What are you doing?" asked the justice, as the lawyer began. "Going to present our side of the case." "I don't want to hear both sides ar gued. It. has tindency to confuse the coort."— Washingtonian. A New Version. "Lawyers have a peculiar system of abbreviation, such words as trustees, executors being cut down to trees, exors, and admors. This practise led to an amusing slip on the part of a solicitor who, somewhat late in life, abandoned Iiis profession and entered the church. A few Sundays after his ordination he startled his congrega tion while reading the lesson by deliv ering one of the passages as follows: "I see mon as trustees walking." The Summer Girl.

WAGON BED CONVERTED INTO DIFFERENT USES Agriculturist Has Often Found It Hardship to Be Obliged to Buy or Build Number of Vehicles Required on Farm. A convertible wagon bed which can be changed into 15 different kinds of bodies for different uses around a farm, without adding to it or taking from it a single piece, has been de signed and is undoubtedly the most radical improvement made in farm wagons for a decade, says Popular Me chanics. In a few minutes it can be trans formed from a hay rack into a wagon Tor carrying live stock, and with equal quickness it can be converted into a vehicle for carrying a large number of passengers who can be provided with ëJ B cJ Unloading Corn Party Wagon Market Wa(oa Livestock Bed m «r m Ai m Hay Rack Bmled H *y Wing* Extended for Use at Hay Rack Wiae» Foldtd 0»«r fer H oji , Sheep. Etc A Wagon Bed of Many Uses. comfortable seats along the picnicking, etc. The remarkable versatility of the new wagon bed is secured by hinged malleable iron pieces attached to the sides. These support two folding sec tions on each side. The strain which is put upon these pieces when heavy loads are placed on the wagon makes it imperative that they should be of strong, dependable material. ides for TILE DRAINS IN CLAY SOIL z::k = Jra ined soi t »umlrainecl soil undrained when drains are 100':feet ajtartj Jtut drained vrhen they are SO *eot The illustration shown herewith is from a bulletin of the Ontario De partment of Agriculture and shows how the water table of the soil de pends on the location of drains. If in a field that is underdrained three feet deep a number of holes are dug it would be observed after a heavy rain that In those nearest the drains no water would remain. In the hole sit uated half-way between the drains at C would hold considerable water for a few days. In a clay in fairly good condition it will be found that the slope of the water table is about 1 foot in 25, in loam 1 foot in about 3H. The illus tration represents a clay soil with drains A and B 100 feet apart. Wells are dug 12.5 feet apart. At the end of -18 hours after a heavy rain the water will stand about as indicated by zig-zag lines, in a gradient of about 1 in 25, and hence will be two feet deeper in the centre well than at eith er #rain. Hence if the drains are three feet deep there will be three feet of drained soil over A and B, but only one foot at X. Capillarity and soil resistance lo water flow play an important part in holding the water highest half way between the drains, and the gradient 1 in 25 represents their combined strength in cliy, hence after this gradient is reached drainage becomes very, very slow, and the water table stands in this irregu lar shape until lowered by evaporation from the soil and plants. But during the months of April, May and some times June, when the rains supply at the surface all the water needed for evaporation, none is drawn 1'rom be low for this purpose, hence during the early months of growth the water stands as indicated by the dotted line AXB. Consequently root development is hampered at X, as 1 foct of soil is The agriculturist has often found 11 a hardship to be obliged to buy or build a number of wagons for the inultifari ous requirements incident to the op eration of a farm. The wagon that could serve to carry boxes or crated vegetables and berries to market would not be of any use when haying time came around. When It was neces sary to carry calves or live stock, still another wagon must be called into service. While reapers, threshers, and othei farm implements have been continually improved, the farm wagon has re mained practically at a standstill. Per haps the fact that the automobile has made such wonderful progress has served to overshadow the humble beast of burden and his reliable wagon.

There are two ways tc remedy the defect, either to dig A and 15 deeper or else put a drain at C half wny between. Value of Birds. A French naturalist asserts that il the world were to become birdless, in nine years' time man could no longer inhabit it. r I his seems a very sweep ing statement at first glance, but when we come to reflect upon the matter we lind that ii is doubtless a true one. Insects and slugs would multiply so fast, notwithstanding all the sprays and poisons that could be manufactured to annihilate them, th*it they would destroy the orchards, for ests and crops. The land would be come one vast desert. Farm Problems. The main problem of agriculture is to show how a farm may be made tc pay a reasonable return on the invest ment and ou the labor performed. In a general way it is well known that a farm can be made to pay, and pay well, but throughout the length and breadth of the country there is a woe ful lack of knowledge of the existing cost and value of production such a9 would throw the average businesj man into despair. Good Exercise. There is no harm in pigs rooting ii they are in a field where rooting will do no harm. Pigs can secure mucli feed by rooting and the exercise will do them good. Where troublesome roots infest the soil they will often eradicate them if allowed to do so The fattening hog should not be al lowed to root, as the exercise con sum es too much feed aud enersv.
