LAYING TILE DRAINS.
Careful Attention Muit Be Paid t*
the Proper Construction o2
Inlets and Outlet*.
No one will question the value of
til« for drainage pipes. In laying
head end of tile, it is a mistake to
dump in a few pieces of broken tile
and mud dug: from the slough bed
with the idea of packing to- make
nearly waterproof. Many have done
that in this section and the water,
failing to run off,
WELL-MADE TILE INLET.
made that the tiling does rot pay.
I have known men to dig up whole
ditches of tile and replace them with
larger pnes, when a little work in the
right way would have brought things
out all right. A correctlj- built tile
inlet and outlet are absolutely essen
tial for success in drainage. Where
soil- is of a mucky nature, the illus
tration shows a good plan of filling in
around the inlet. This plan, however,
is not necessary where soil is mossy.
DURABLE TILE OUTLET.
About ,»itr or five feet of tile should
be covered with coarse gravel to
•within six or eight inches of the sur
face, so the plow will not strike the
stone. This will let the water off
free]}', yet keep the soil in good
shape. A large stone should be placed
et the end of the tile.
The outlet should also be kept
clean of roots and bars of netting so
placed that the vermin may be kept
•'out.. If this is done and the tile prop
erly laid, water will have easy going
and the farmer will go his way re
joicing instead of "cussing" the tile
which he thought was too small.—

MANAGING A DROUGHT.
Come Lchodi Learned by an Iowa
Farmer Darlns tbe Hot, IJry
Dan of Last Summer.
The shortage in crops—especially
"that of corn—the result of the extreme
drought of the past, and the inability
of the farmer to cope with it, has been
to them a very severe and costly les
son, and proven that they are very
ignorant in some things. How to man
age these things that we may be ready
for such another calamity has been a
theme of much controversy between
myself and brother farmers, and near
ly all agree that for corn and similar
crops1, surface cultivation is the only
way, and if we cultivate often enough
to keep a good mulch of dust on top,
it will bring you through any drought
that visits this1 country with a good
paying crop. There is much fall plow
ing being done, and with the thought
a dry .season visiting us again next
year, we ask, in order to hold the most
water in store till cultivation begins in
the spring, should we plow deeper in
the fall than in the spring. In answer
to this it has been thought that deep
plowing would be the better for a
dry season, as it loosens up the ground
that it will hold all the water that
may fall upon it, and retain the moist
ure from the melting snows till the
more compact ground below will have
time to take up the water and hold it
in store for the coming crops, and
where the water goes, the air goe-s,
and these supply the growing crops
with nourishment. Another good way
of keeping the land in good tilth, as
well as to assist in retaining the moist
ure is to spread barnyard manure over
the field. Now the question arises in
our minds does manure make the land
richer, or does it put the humus into
the soil and make it loose, light and
friable, that it may bring forth abun
dant crops? In time the land becomes
hard and cloddy a^ain and corn will
not grow, and to bring it back to a
corn-growing condition again, it can
be sown to clover. To sum it all up,
it simply appears that the water and
the shading are the principal requi
sites. for making the land productive
in any kind of a season.—fJohn Lan
sing, in Prairie Farmer.
Fertilisation of Flowers.
Insects are necessary to the fertil
ization of most flowers and were it
not fo-- insects, especially honey bees,
many of the crops we now have would
be wanting. There are a good many
flowers that produce pollen that has
no means of getting from flower to
flower except by the medium of in
sects. On th2 other hand, some plants
throw off great quantities of pollen
without the help of the insects. Prof.
James Fletcher relates that when in
British Columbia some people came to
him and asked him to explain a show
er of sulphur that had apparently fal
len during the preceding night. He
assured them that there had been no
shower of sulphur, but that what
looked like sulphur was in reality the
pollen of pine trees.

ers usually show the greatest profit

People of Japan Have Developed a
Great Fondiiemi for This Prod

A curious coincidence learned by the
experts of the department of agricul

that while the natives of China, Japan,
the Philippines and the coast region
never have cultivated a taste for but
ter and cheese, yet they have made up
this discrepancy by their fondness for
A few years after the process of con
densing milk was discovered, the na
tives of Japan, China and the east gen
erally soon cultivated a liking for it,
and to-day condensed milk is more pop
ular and in greater demand in these
countries than is any other western
product. Thousands of cans are shipped
from San Francisco to the ports of
China and Japan and to Manila every
week and in supplying this trade the
United States holds the monopoly. But
in regard to butter and cheese, while
tbe outlook is bright, say.s officials of
the department, still it is hardly posi
sible for us to compete with Australia
on equal terms in supplying these com
modities, for the reason that that coun
try lies several thousand miles near
er the market than we do. But when
it comes to Japan, American dairy
products, it is believed, will be able to
compete with Australian butter on
As above stated, the natives have
cultivated little taste for butter or for
cheese, so that the sales of these prod
ucts are made mostly for the large
European and American population in
the principal seaports from Nagasaki
to Singapore who up until a very short
time ago depended entirely on Aus
tralia for their supply. Now that the
agents- from the United States' are in
the field, it is said that both dealers
and customers are willing to buy
American butter and cheese, and in a
majority of cases, have expressed a
preference for these two products sent
there from the United States.

Dairy- Utensils in Winter.
It is often difficult to keep dairy
utensils in the best possible condition
in winter, because of lack of sunshine.
On most farms vessels are washed and
scalded and then put in the sunshine
until wanted. Many winter days have
no sunshine. Utensils should there
fore be boiled thoroughly or subject
ed to live steam if this is obtainable.
At any rate, give them a good scald
ing in boiling water, and place them
where they are exposed to outside air.
Sunshine is the best possible disin
fectant. Keep your dairy utensils in
the sunshine as much as possible.—
Selection of Seed Potatoes.
Many varieties of potatoes come and
go, and but for the continued introduc
tion of new varieties potatoes, would
soon be scarce. This is due to the care
less selection of seed. All the tubers^jf
a crop are sold for seed, when only the
best should be selected. If the largest
tubers from the thriftiest and strong
est plants only are retained for feed
there would be an improvement in the
el5 varieties instead of deterioration
in quality. But a® long as seed potatoes
bring good prices there will be good
and inferior seed used.

A ROOSEVELT ANECDOTE.
Ills Part In an Encounter Happened
Some Yearn Ago, in tbe
In evidence of Roosevelt's ability to
take care of himself a story was told
the other day in the white house. The
president when not many years
younger than now was spending a
part of the early winter on a ranch
in Wyoming, says a Washington cor
respondent of the New York Press.
While going from the railway station
to the ranch on foot a sudden bliz
zard broke out and compelled him to
turn back and make his way with the
wind and snow down the railway
After traveling a mile or two he
came to one of those resorts patron
ized by cow-punchers in the west.
Groceries and general merchandise
were sold, but the principal attraction
was the long bar where the liquid
goods were passed over. Roosevelt
entered quietly and took a chair be
hind the great roaring cannon stove
in one corner of the room. A typical
western bully had been holding forth
in the bar-room that evening and had
made every newcomer buy a round of
drinks, or dance as he fired pistol
shots at their feet.
Roosevelt had laid aside his coat
and was leaning back comfortably in
his chair when espied by the "bad
man." He sized Roosevelt up, and,
noticing his glasses, accosted him.
"Well, old four eyes, what the
do you want in here?" Roosevelt tried
to quiet the man, realizing his dis
position, but was not successful.
The bully insisted that Roosevelt buy
a drink for everybody in the place or
dance a jig. Roosevelt refused to do
either, when the big westerner
stepped up, pulled his pistol, and an
nounced tliat only two minutes would
be allowed in which to comply with
his command. Roosevelt as he slowly
rose to his feet said:
"Well, if I must I must." He had
scarcely straightened himself out as
his words were uttered when he bent
his right arm into a hook and landed
an uppercut on the tip of the west
erner's chin, which sent him inglori
ously to the floor, the revolver fall
ing from his hand. For the next ten
minutes Itoosevelt was busy in pulling
off -the other occupants of the room,
who insisted on placing their feet
rapidly and vigorously in the ribs of
the fallen humorist.
Busy men have no time for attend
ing ordinary funerals, therefore it is
now become the fad to -send secre
taries and office boys to pay the final
tribute of respect to friendship. At
a recent quiet funeral in this city a
clerkly looking young man was
stopped at the door by the servant,
who demanded his business. "I am
come to attend the final obsequies,"
was the reply. "Friend of the fam
ily?" inquired the lackey. "Not per
sonally, but I represent Messrs.
Blank & Thank, who are unable to be
here." He was admitted. Some mu
tual acquaintances, talking about the
funeral a few days later, expressed
surprise that neither Blank nor
Thank, both intimate friends of the
deceased, was present, and were still
more surprised to learn that the
firm's office boy did the honors by
special appointment.—X. Y. Press.
Pretty Wedding Custom.
A pretty custom at English royal
weddiDgs has been in vogue since the
marriage of Queen Victoria. A sprig
o5 myrtle from her bridal wreath
was planted. When the princess roy
al, the late Empress Frederick of
Germany, became a bride, the little
branch had grown to be fc tree, and
in turn contributed to her chaplet.
She followed her mother's example,
and when the present emperor of Ger
many was married his bride wore
sprigs cut from his mother's tree.
The practice was observed in the mar
riage of the prince of Wales, and has
been adopted by all of Queen Vic
toria's children and grandchildren
who have married.—2f. Y. World*
