Do Not Suppress a Cough
When you have a cough do not try
to suppress It but remove the cause
The cough is only a symptom of some
disease and the disease is what you

of coughing is a cold Anodynes will
promptly suppress the cough and
preparations containing chloroform
opium etc arp used fpr that purpose
but they do not cure the cold Cham
berlains Cough Remedy on the other
hand does not suppress the cough but
relieves it by removing from the
throat and lungs the mucus which
obstructed the breathing and allaying
the irritation and tickling in the
throat It also open the secretions

REPORT ON IRRIGATION
IN THE UNITED STATES
CENSUS BUREAU BULLETIN is
SUED YESTERDAY SHOWING
CONDITIONS IN 1902 REMARK
ABLE PROGRESS IN FLORIDA
Washington Jan ll The Bureau
of the Census hasjust published
bulletin showing the condition of irri
gation nthe United States in 1902
This report was authorized by a Joint
resolution passed by the house at the
first session of the Fiftyseventh con
gress and was prepared under the su
pervision of Mr fceGrand Powers
chief statistician for agriculture by
Mr Clarence J Blanchard now of the
geological survey
The statistics presented were ob
taIn dby correspondence supplement
ed by fieldwork Infew states and
by information given by state en
gineers and their assistants
The report is introduced by a short
history showing the growth and devel
opment of irrigation in this country
and the statistics are presented a nd
discussed by regions by states and
by drainage basins
Irrigation Regions
While irrigation In all portions of
the United Spites is for the same gen
eral purpose the degree of require
ment the extent of exploitation and
the methods of application iffer wide
ly in certain mare or less welldefined d
regions
In this report the United States is
divided into the following regions
The arid region comprising those
states and territories betweeh the
western boundary of the Mississippi
valley and the Pacific coast where
agriculture is dependent almost en
tirely upon the artificial application of
water to land the semiarid region
comprising parts of those states lying
midway between the r Rocky moun
tains and the Mississippi river where
in the rainfall is so uncertain that irri
gation is necessary except during the
years of unusual precipitation the
rice producing states comprising
parts of Texas and Louisiana and cer
tain counties in the Carolinas and
Georgia and the humid states repre
sented by several of the New England
Middle Atlantic and Gulf states In
which Irrigation is practiced to a Urn
ited extent
Arid Region
The report shows thafin 1902 there
were in the arid region 911 per cent
of the total number of irrigated farms
893 per cent of the irrigated acreage
and 83 per cent of the construction
cost of the systems Although Irri
gation was carried on most extensive
ly in the arid region the rate of In
crease from 1899 to 1902 was less for
that region than for any other In ir
rigated acreage the increase was 166
per cent for the arid regipnt 1526 per
cent for the semiarid states and ter
ritories 762 per cent for the humid
states and 1413 per cent for the rice
states
Of the nine states and two territo
ries in the arid region California
ranked first in both the number of
irrigated farms and In the total con
struction cost of systepif Utah rank
ed second in the number of farms and
third in the construction cost and
Colorado ranked third in the number
of farms and second in the construc °
tion cost In total irrigated area Col
orado ranked first California second
and Montana third
For the arid region theayerage con
struction cost per acre was 914 and
the average per irrigation system
was 2710
Semiarid Regipn
For the semiarid region as a whole
it may be said that ordinary crops
cannot be grown moire than three
years out of five without the artificial
application of water The soil how
ever is with few exceptions as fertile
as any in the United States and with
sufficient moisture produces large
yields of any crop suited to the tem
perate zone In this region the num
ber of irrigated farms increased from
4897 in 1889 to 7021 in 1902 or 434
per cent while there was a gain of
2212947 or 765 per cent In the con
struction cost of systems The largest
relative increase was shown for North
Dakota In this region Nebraska
ranked first and Texas second in the
extent of Irrigation
Irrigated Rice Felds
Although rice is grown in nearly all
of the Southern states the practice
of irrigation In its culture is confined
principally to the coast counties of the
Carolinas and Georgia to the Missis
sippi delta and to the coastal prairies
of Texas and Louisiana These coast
al prairies were considered to be flt
only jfor grazing until experiments in
1897 proved the peculiar adaptability
of the soil for rice culture Then
many farmers from trio states of the
Middle West went to ibis country and
engaged in the cultivation of rice
They introduced Improved methods
and modern machineryamt there was
a wonderful development in this in +
dustry Now thousands of acres are
being irrigated annually for the pro
duction of rice
In Louisiana the year 1902 was a
year of great extremes Thegrowing
season was marked bF excessive
drought while the season of harvest
was one of great rainfall The in
creased drew number of pumping plants
so heavily upon the rivers and
bayous In the prairie region that their
levels were lowered and salt water
N ame up from the Gulf and caused
considerable
damage In order to pre
vent a similar I
occurrence dams cost
Ing been many thousands of dollars have
HSwibuilt1or are being Planned and
additional levees have beennhrown upi
Humid States f
Irrigation in the humid states Is
practiced
largely as an insurance
against the droughts that t
in the occur early1

the New England states and in Penn
sylvania it was confined principally
hay meadows bordering on small
streams A few farmers reported the
irrigation of vegetables and small
fruits and exceptionally large yields
were obtained
Progress in Florida
In the winter of 189495 nearly all
of the large orange groves in Florida
were destroyed by frost and many of
the fruit growers were compelled by
circumstances to engage in truck
farming They used their irrigation
plants in the new work and the yields
were improved and the profits became
greater Since the value irrigation
in truck farming was demonstrated in
this way many farmers have installed
plants that may be used for Irrigation n
purposes when needed In this state
the progress of Irrigation has been
remarkable a great variety of crops
are irrigated and the irrigation sys
terns are among the mbst modern In
