Senator William Alden Smith tells
of an Irish justice of the peace out
in Michigan. 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.

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

The remarkable versatility of the
new wagon bed is secured by hinged
malleable iron pieces attached to the
sides. These support two folding sec

is put upon these pieces when heavy
loads are placed on the wagon makes
it imperative that they should be of
strong, dependable material.
TILE DRAINS IN CLAY SOIL
= Jra ined soi t
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

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
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. Old

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.
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.
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

The fattening hog should not be al
