GRADING TILE DRAINS. All tho Outtll N<mmIc<! Ih a Wuter Level, nn Ax iiihI Some Slakes. A writer who has tlono ;v great deal of ditching for P3 years describes his plan f(jr obtaining tlio grndo of tho bottom of a tile ditch in the absence of it skilled ditcher. Ho makes hie report aa follows lu tho Ohio .dinner: I take my ax and n stake and go to where 1 want, the outlet of my ditch. I drive'tho stake as near tho center of pro? posed ditch its may be. I then take the level, go to upper end of ditch and place the level a foot or more above the ground to clear nil obstructions from a perfect view of stake at lower end of ditch, then drive a stake down even with top of level. Now I have the grade stake at upper end of ditch fixed. I then sight over my level to stake at lower end of ditch and have a bov there to mark FtXDIXO A tlRADE IN TILE DITCHES, where the level line strikes the stake. Now I can readily see tho amount of fall obtainable in my proposed ditch. I next drive another stake down so t lie top will be as much lower than the level mark on first stake as I have fall in whole letlgthof ditch, provided it is to be pill on tin1 one grade the whole length. The two end stakes thus set tlx the grade of ditch. After this ia done I drive three or four stakes, according to length of ditch, driv? ing them down to a perfect grade ou i"p with the two end stakes. Now I have a perfect grade line on top of stakes, which represents the grade in bottom "1 ditch, and to transfer it to the bottom I make a grade stick?say I feet long, more or less, as may be required, according to depth of ditch or height of grade stakes above the ground, und with this stick 1 dig down until the top of grade stick, when set plumb in bottom <.f ditch, conies on a perfect lino with topof grade .-ta!<< s. The grade stakes must be all .-et on a perfect line, as near on a line with the center of the proposed ditch as may be, and hence will have to lie removed as you come to them in digging the ditch Before disturbing the last stake but one. set another stak;' beyond the first in order that you may maintain your grade to tho end. By using your grade stick often the grade of your ditch need not vary a quarter of an inch in 20 rods. I usually lay and blind my tile about as fast as I dig the ditch. At least when I quit at night I have my tile placed and blinded to within a rod of the'end of finish? ed ditch. I leave some six or eight tile that I do not blind. This gives all the Wittel that may gather in the ditch a chance to get into the tile, and by placing a thin flat stone between the ends of the second and third tile, so no dirt can run into the tile below, your ditch remains perfectly secure until finished, By laying the tile as fast as the ditch is dug yon maintain a much better grade than can possibly be had after t lie ditch is allowed to Iny until the water cuts out the bottom ?r caves in the Bides ami with much less la? bor. New Horticultural Limn lleaiiH. Among the novelties of last year none perhaps enlisted more interest than this supposed cross between the lima and old horticultural pole beau. The cross, f if Je THE NKW HOUTICL'LTLHAL LIMA BEAN, it is claimed was made by insects. Here is what a correspondent, who has grown Ulis bean four seasons under many con? ditions of soil, climate and culture, says about it in a communication to Rural New Yorker: Its foliago and habit of growth nre more of the type of the Horticultural Pole than the Lima, while the structuro and shape of the pod and bean belong to tho latter. It roots strongly, and its rapidity of growth under favorable con? ditions is something remarkable. It be? gins to blossom early and sets its crop close to the ground. I do not consider it so strong a runner as either of its parents and use poles six to eight feet high in my field culture. While not so productive as some of the large varieties of Limas it is still a good yielder, and 1 have grown 30 bushels of hand picked beans to the acre. The quality is excellent green, shelled or dry. Tin- color is dark only when cooked in the dry state. Tho pod is tough and leathery and protects the in? closed bean from injury when they come in contact with the soil. It is not an easy bean to shell in tho green state, hut will compare well with other Limas in that respoct. I find it, at tho proper stage of growth, an oxcellent snap short bean. As tested last season, it is two weeks earlier than the Horticultural Pole. IN THE POULTRY YARD. Vliltio of Systematic Methode In Itnirlnc Chickens?A Finn For Houses ami Yards. It is a beautiful theory that brings chickens tip on the "free range" plan, but it is a plan that entails no liitlo an? guish of soul and body, and that results in the loss of no small uuinber of chick? ens. The placiug of individual broods in boxes and barrels hero, there and ev? erywhere about the premises may an bwer when tho chicks are little, but as they outgrow their small quarters and an attempt is made to transfer them to now quarters then the trouble begins, and it chicken's obstinate nature is made painfully apparent, for the broods will persist in haunting tho region of the old coop and will camp down for the night on its exact location, if it has been re? moved, or they will seek new quarters under buildingB or in other out of the way places, where it is almost impossi? ble to get tit them and where they fre? quently fall a prey to cats, skunks or other animals. Moreover, running thus together, big and little, tho feeding time exhibits a constant contention and mas? tery of the stronger over tho weaker, which results in impaired growth. Tho better plan, as explained by a cor? respondent of Country Greutlomun, ia to raise no more chickens than can bo ac? commodated in yards of ample size?a yard for each brood of 18 or 20 chicks? and let each brood have a houso to itself of a size to itccommodate tho chicks un? til they are well grown and ready to be Bold or transferred to the regular poultry house. Thus one always knows whore his chickens are and that the work need? ed to euro for them bus been reduced to a minimum. The illustration, repro? duced from the authority quoted, shows a plan for stu b chicken yards aud houses. Tlu? view given shows the backs of the houses. The yards are side by side and the houses in u row of any length desired. k mm %mL ?... ? . ?_w ???? ? ; : c UNIFORM I IOCS ICS AND YARDS. These bouses are arranged to afford tho greatest convenience. They are some 2* feet square and about :$ feet in height, with a single roof, all the boards being tongued and grooved. The entire back is a door, which gives convenient nccess to the interior, and within this i.; a slat door for use when the weather is wann. Such coops can be thoroughly and readi? ly cleaned out with a shovel and dry loatn thrown in, a person with a shovel and wheelbarrow being able to go the rounds of a large number of coops in a very few moments. Shade, either nat? ural or artificial, should be provided for these chicken yards. It is often feasible to locate them in an orchard, with bene? fit both to the chickens and to the trees. In any event do not make tho mistake of having the yards too small. Make them us large as possible. OriinireH In Louisiana. In n special bulletin from the Louisi? ana station on tho culture of citrus fruits in Louisiana views and cultural meth? ods of orange glowers in Louisiana and Floiida are given at length. As a stock the sweet, Bour and bitter BWCCt types :nay be used, also the rough lemon or wild lemon of Florida, the grape fruit, < litrns trifoliatn, and others. Citrus trifoliatn is especially recom? mended as a hardy dwarf and as a suit? able stock for the Satsuma, the hardiest variety of orange. From the answers received to a cir? cular sent to orange growers in Florida and Louisiana it appeals that soils of several types are suited to tho orange, and that thorough preparation aud drainagoof tho land are necessary. The majority advocated shallow planting sour stock budded in spring and culti? vation when tho orchard is not sown to some green crop. (1 rowers budded at all distances from two to twelve inches abovo the ground. It appeared that very few growers had practical experi? ence as to tho advantages of wind breaks. The station has begun experiments in tho caro of orange ?orchards, planting hoed crops, cow peas, alfalfa and crim? son clover between the rows of trees and using these crops as hay, plowing them under or permitting them to rot on tho surface. Up to date the trees i-iiow no difference fioin the several methods of cultivation, but tho most profitable treatment has been that with alfalfa, since this plant has furnished a largo amount of hay. Insect leid? For Cotton Worms. Tho Southern Cultivator says: "Royall's patent iB perhaps the mixture most commonly used as an insecticide for cotton worms, with tho exception of a mixture of paris green and Hour in tho proportion of 80 of flour and 1 of paris greon. The formula of tho Roynll mixture, is 170 pounds of flour, 9 pounds paris green, 10 pounds dextrin and 12 pounds of rosin. Tho paris greon is worth 10 cents per pound, dextrin (1 cents, rosin 8 cents. Frequently 50 pounds of flour are used to 1 of paris green, and unless tho worms are unusu? ally abundant has been found effective, Tobacco In Tex us.
