Wherever tha irrig-ation Is necessary to the production of a crop, it will be found of great advantage, at the time of seeding 1 , to make ditches and furrows at short intervals, and then to bo check the water in these ditches that it raay stand in small bodies at a level above the general surface of the ground to be irrigated. If the water is held constantly in these small reservoirs during the growing season, it will not be necessary to Jlnud the ground so often, .and if the soilissuf- licietit ly porous, it may be possible to f.'ivo the crop all the m</ist:!re it 7ii.'t;d.s without surface application.

Then run ditches e c from above each limp iii'i'i'ly along a contour or equal Ici-el line <>£ the Hold, dyking tlier.o ditches u;> to kee[> the water above accidental high places. Tlu.se ditches should lie permanent. They should bo near together at the top of tin- field the intei-vats widening as they near th lower c'l.'jv. as tho seepage from th upper ditches will necessarily mak 1 lie ground more utid more moist to ward Iho lower edge of the. field.

This will prevent washing of dykes and the con- ,set|uent digging up of crops to repaii these J.n-ea ks. From these, opc-ninys the water should be conducted iu zigzag courses, in furrows prepared at. the tin*; of seeding, thus pro venting- washing, and keeping the water as much as possible away from the crowns of plants until it soaks into the soil. A nutate d should bo placed at the source of each of these Held laterals, and then it Is possible for the farmer to so regulate the supply in each part of the field that a sufficient, supply nay be at the roots of every plant, and very little or no water going to waste at the ends of the Held laterals. Uy this method a comparatively small quantity of water can be made to supply a large uroa. The system is imple, and can be applied in many suctions not equipped with regular irrigating works. A modification of it etui even be adopted on the plains of the central west under windmill irrigation.—,!. R. Patterson, in Orange Judd Farmer. PROFITABLE FISH FARMS.

The reason for tliis hinglny is for convenience in knocking it down, moving it, and setting it up again. In tearing it down carefully tip it over on roof, wrong side up, on a sled, fold down ends and sides, then move where- desired: put tip again and fasten at corners v.-ith ,1 spike or two, leaving the heads out so as to draw out easily, and it is complete. i.H'ten it need not bo let down at all, only lipped on the end of :i sled as needed.

They are not kept off the market by any spirit of speculation as n rule or from hope of advance in price —things have not been tending that wjvy of late-—but from sheer careless- Bess oftentimes. The percentage of Joss in this way is quite a considerable item in the experience of a multitude j^of farmers, and those, too, who can ill •'•Hord i't- '-.'--, . . The practice of raising 1 food fish for market has become of lato a very profitable industry, and in some parts of the country is being- carried out on an extensive scale. Tho equipment of a fish farm, as it is culled, is :i ve.rj' simple and inexpensive operation. Land which would be valueless for ordinary farming- may be used for the purpose, the only requirement being- a plentiful supply of ffoocl running water. The best :«ite for a farm is a hilly or mountainous district where the water runs swift 13- and is interrupted by waterfalls, since this servos to derate, and refresh the water. The fish farms are usually provided with three ponds, each of which is reserved for lish of about tho s:i::te si::e. As the lish if row. thr-y are clur.ufed from one pond to another. The fry is usually bought at the state or other hatchery and placed in the lirst po.'ul. The' foi.nl lor the lish is the principal expense. There aro a variety of prepared lish foods on the market, but it relic in its has been found that tho lish fed with lubrious i:: pronurcd food Iv.ivo .1 doeidodly beefy tain it is llavor.

Ttn Importuuro uncl l'*!cunl:iry Value on the t r »rui. .Barnyard manure is the most important manuriul resource of the farm and should be carefully saved and used: It represents fertility drawn from the soil and must be returned to it if productiveness is to be maintained. This manure contains all the fertilizing- elements required by plants in forms that insure plentiful crops and permanent fertility to the soil. The urine is the most valuable portion, but it is best used in connection with the solid dung, one thus correcting the deficiencies of the other. / The amount and value of the manure produced by different farm animals is put at, the following figures in the latest farmers' bulletin, the computations being made on the basis of 1,000 rounds of live weight: Sheep, 'MA rounds of manure per day, worth 7,2 cents; calves, HT.S pounds, worth C.7 cents; pigs, 83.G pounds, worth ]H.7 cents; cows,'7-1.1 pounds, worth S cents, uid horses, JS.S pounds, worth 7.C cents, basing calculations of value on market prices of commercial fertilisers, vhieh probably gives results much too lip'h. Making liberal allowances for hose and other considerations. Prof. Huberts estimates that the value of the manure produced on a small farm carrying •! horses, ~0 co'-vs, .10 sheep and 10 pigs during the seven winter months amounts to about 5:.'."'0.

There :ire a fjood m.iuy kinds of ^-ay sport in the Lone ^.t;ir state, said au old. ranchman. There- are jumpinfr jack rabbits, for instance. Just mention jumping 1 jack rabbits to an old Tuxan and see how his eyes glisten at the mere recollection. ,Just imagine a fair, cloudless morn- injj iu that prairie land, and stretching- far aw:iy on ail sides a waving- sea of green, green grass. Here rind there tire dark spots like islands, where an occasional mcsfjuite fluttersitsfern-like boug-hs in the breeze. Scattered.bunches of brown tell where the cattle are fuelling 1 , and high overhead sails one wide-winged, lonely hnwk. On such a day and in such a grand reach of grass lands will assemble a tuerry band of riders. Men and women are there, but rill young, for the tricks and tumbles of a rabbit run are not for the stiff joints of old age. The small, wiry bronchos tin nee and fret to be away. They are veteran cattle ponies, each of them able to round the lleeti'st beeves on the rancre. to turn around in a.space of UVD foet square, and to dodge the maddest of mad bulls with consummate e;ise. A pnck of thin, s.leck- co;i.:ed greyhounds hang 1 about, the horse's heels, .sharp-no^ed rascals, slender of build, and wi:h legs that can outstrip their own shadows. OiV they g". It is simple enough to jump the. rabbits. The work is only liegua at. that point. The whole pr.'ii- rie is alive with them, and they are fairly dying for a good run. There is no prairie in l!rer Halibil's mind when he hears the hounds in the grass. lie Haps one .'ong ear Over his eye and sits up to mediuite and look around him. Once he locates the pack, and finds that they arc not to be drawn off on some other scent, he is off like a flash of light. IJoth velvety i-ars are laid along the low-stretched back. and. with his fore.elgs straight out and one hind leg doubled up for a .spring, he is fairly sliding through the fodder. \Vher. one hind leg gets tired he will drop tho other down for work and put the; weary leer up under his belly to res! 1 . If iie is hard pressed he will use both, and then nothing on earth can touch him.

Xow. as they all turn and plnng-e away on the new trail, stirmps are forsakeu. hats dropped, and spur and whip laid on. ; Above all rings out over the peaceful prairie that fiendish cowboy yell. I Brer Rabbit has now discovered that this is no fool's piny, this chase, and he is settled down to work. His forepaws : and snowy tail pleam like a white line j along tflo grass, j ne oiu nounns are- tiring. The young ones redouble their yelps, and they see even before tl.iir ridcrs do that dim, black, circling- line- thathems in the horizon. Itis a barbed- wire fence (one of the eussedest innovations of the latter day), and, once- under it aud in the tangle beyond, and Brer Rabbit will be safe. The young-- cst pup is long of head, and, unnoticed by the pack, he slinks to one side and takes a short cut. As the old dogs, gradually forge ahead and turn the long-eared refugee, this pup is steadily dra-.ving nearer unseen beneath the high grass. One rider- is down, thrown by his pony., which stumbles into :u burrow, ami the best dog in the pack catches his. foot and turns a somersault in the air,. Demoralization takes possession of the- hunt, and the chase is well-nigh abandoned. All at once tile shrill yelp of ;t. baby hound rings out, there is a confused whirl of small dog and big rabbit against the sl:y. and the cry goes, up: "Young Dan. Good boy, f>an." .Sure enough, the youngster has head-. oiT and captured the quarry.
