" The. following paper on Irrigation
read recently at a farmers' Institute
at Aberdeen, Idaho, will be of partic
ular interest to every man who Irri
gates, or ever has or expects to:
Irrigation ir."".r the supplying of
water in the right amount at the right
time. Water is the one element nec
essary to plant life, which Is under
the control of man and the good irri
gator can control plant growth with
as much certainty, almost, as he can
the shape of his buildings. The man
who does not understant something
of plant growth can never become a
good irrigator. Water must be ap
plied in a scientific and rational man
ner, because it Is the lever which con
trols production. Moi.sture, air, heat
and plant food are the elements which
control plant growth. Water Is the
vehicle which tarries food to the
plant. Descending Into the soil it dis
solves the chemical food elements
and rising by capillary attraction, car
ries that food to the plants. Bear In
mind that it Is not the water going
into the soil, but that coming up
which feeds the plant.
Plants should grow continuously
from the time the seed sprouts until
they mature. If they are supplied
with moisture In the right quantity
and In the right way, they will do so.
If the soli Is saturated with water to
vuch an extent as to expel the air, the
growth of the plant Is checked. This
W one reason why Irrigation by the
corrugation method, or in small
trenches, Is preferable to flooding.
Iar In mind never to keep the. soil
saturated. Water In the soil formB In
thin layers around the soil particles.
If these particles are cubes with inch
surfaces, there would be a film of
p ater on ail sides of the cubes. If
this cube were pulverized, or changed
t.. a powder, there would be as many
r.ims as there are veil particles. There
fore a fine soil will hold more mois
ture than a coarse soil, because there
sue more interstices to be filled. Ten
per cent of moisture In these Inter
stices and a balance of air Is about
the Ideal proportion.
The dealing is simple.

Thus good cultivation, in having
ti e soil well pulverized, is an aid to
ood irrigation.
The roots of a plant are always
larger than its top. That is, the roots
extend further Into tiv ground than
Its top above It. The roots may run
along near the surface or may be
made to penetrate deep into the soil.
If the soil is kept wet when the plants
begin to grow, their roots will keep
near the surface. But if moisture Is
withheld, the plants will hunt for It,
the same as an animal, and send their
roots deep after It. The deeper the
toots go the larger the feeding ground
of the plant, and the thriftier the
plant will be.
Thus, by the application of water,
the Irrigator may benefit or injure
plant grAwth. A plant with roots
r.ear the surface will require frequent
irrigation.. One deep-rooted requires
Hch less water. Thus by starting

or save himself work.
As between the corrugating or
flooding methods, he preferred the
former, for two reasons; a better and,
quicker distribution of water, and less
liability of checking plant growth. In
the corrugating or furrow method,
furrows three or four inches deep, and
two feet apart, should be made in the
field Immediately after planting, be
fore the seeds sprout. These furrows
readily conduct the water, carrying it
across a field in much less time than
when flooding is resorted to, and dis
tribute the water more easily. The
rise of an Inch or two In a few square
rods of ground Is scarcely noticeable.
Yet water cannot be forced upon such
ground without Impounding It by
dams and making the low placeB too
wet while the high ones are getting
moisture enough to make the plants
grow., Where a furrow tour mones
deep is made through such high places
th watr flows without Interruption,

corrugation to another, leaving the
surface generally dry, and supplying

sides of the ditches to take the water
from the ditch to the corrugations.
One spout will supply two corruga
tions. These spouts should De piacea
Im the side of trie ditch, about one
Inch or so below the water level when
the gates are closed. For Instance,
say the fall Is two feet to the halt
mile, and your ditch 18 Inches deep.
en I of the ditch it would nack water
up only three-fourths along or across
the field. But begin about 200 yards
.ruin I'M: upper end of the ditch, and
; v.: !:i i gate that can be raised and
. . n-.i. but imt quite as high as the
rrnks of the ditch, so that water will
jun over the headgate or as many as
in' ivjuired. The greater the fall
the more gates required. When you
.v.uit water close the gates and raise
the water above the spouts. When
through, raise the gates, the water
li.vc! falls, and the water harmlessly
piixsi'.-i away. When ditcius are con
strutted this way It Is a pleasure to
liigate and requires little time.
In preparing your ground for irrltfn-
1 tion (for permanent fields) do it right.
Made right once, it Is always right. If
no more then 10 acres can be pre
pared In olid year, do it light, because
it will pay In the long run. Have
your land level. By level is meant
free from knolls, with a slope. Water
cannot be made to run up hill. If the
slope Is too great .run the corruga
tions around the slope In steep places
or parallel with the ditches as near as
may be necessary, instead of from it.
A fall of an inch to a rod makes a
good flod for corrugations. When
the land Is quite level and has a
gradual fall to the southeast, with
the water coming upon the land at the
highest point, the northeast corner.
Construct a ditch clear around the
tract, with gates so that the water
can be flowed westward and fed
through spouts to the northern part
of the field, the surplus part of the
water passing away In the ditch on
the west.
The surplus water on the field will
be caught in a cross ditch, a third of
the way down the field, and may be
used to water the central part of the
field or allowed to waste In the ditch
on the west, or if It la desired to wa
ter the middle or lower parts of the
field the water can be turned down
the ditch to the east, and forced Into
either cross ditch as desired, and the
water confined to the land Intended to
be watered. If a field cannot be prop
ly laid out without the services of an
engineer it will be much cheaper to
get one than to try and get along In
a slipshod manner by attempting to
drive the water where you want It
with a shovel. Irrigating is easy
where the ditches are properly laid
out. Where they are not, it Is slavery.

Many people do not know what a bank's
capital means to its depositors, or the differ

and one with a large capital. One of the
functions of

is to protect its depositors from possibleloss;
therefore the larger it is, the greater protec
