The Persian wheel, or bucket pump, although of great antiquity, is used in many localities. These wheels, or bucket pumps, as now used for irrigation consist of an endless chain of small buckets extending down into the well and np vertically to the height which water must bo delivered to flow out to the land. The buckets, descending empty and ascending filled, are discharged at the highest point. The machinery for raising them may be driven either by horsepower or by steam engines. STORAGE OF GRAIN.

Sometimes the grain is hauled directly to the station for shipment, sometimes to the mill, sometimes to the inland elevator, and these methods very commonly prevail where the grain crop is large. In Kansas, for instance, dnring the recent harvest it was no uncommon thing to see the self binder, the thrasher and the plow all running at once in the same field and at the same time teams hauling loads of wheat direct from thrasher to mill or market, and this is very commonly done where the grain crop is grown on a large scale. But on many farms storage of grain is quite common, and it needs to receive attention in order that loss may be prevented, and in | this connection the Iowa Homestead gives the following advice: If the bins or granaries have been used before, they should be made thoroughly clean preparatory to filling them. It is especially important to sbe that they contain no insect pests that prey upon stored grain. There are several species of weevil •which infest granaries, as well as the fly moth, which not only attacks the grain in store, but occasionally deposits its eggs on the grain in the field. A few of these often survive, and the pest is thus introduced into even clean quar— SPARED LEE'S LIFE. Bnnsulvania lines.; Trt.ltu: Hue by Central CHICAGO DIVISION DAILY.

BUCKET 1'UMP OPERATED BY Windmills are also used, but owing to their varying speed are not preferred for the purposa A modification of the common Persian wheel used to a small extent for irrigation is the form in which the buckets, instead of moving freely upward, pass through a pipe or a long rectangular box in which they fit quite closely. Instead of being of bucket form they may be flat and are then known as "flights." By far tho greater number of ordinary pumps may bo classed under the head of piston or plunger. These are the kind ordinarily employed with a windmill. They depend for their action upon two or more valves and npon the lifting or displacing of the warer by the alternate forward and back, or in and out, movement of the piston rod. These pumps are too well known to require description. Their cost is as varied as their size and intricacy and can best bo ascertained by each individual consulting for himself tho nearest dealer or the catalogues'of well known manufacturers. For irrigation such pumps are driven by windmills, by steam engines or by gasoline or hot. air motors, and in some instances, notably in tho vicinity of Grand Junction, Colo., and on the Y;v kinia river in Washington, by water wheels. Although widely known and generally used for pumping, yet for purposes of irrigation they arc apparently being supplanted to a considerable extent by valvcless pumps, such as the Persian wheel typo or the contrif ugal form. The centrifugal pumps possess an advantage not only in being valveless, and therefore less liable to injury by sand and floating obstacles, but also in tho fact that they ran continuously in one direction and do not have the reciprocating motion of the various forms of plunger. The principle of their action is that of a rapidly whirling body throwing objects from its surface. Blades of suitably proportioned fans are caused to revolve rapidly in the -water, and tho masses thrown away are confined in a box or pipe in such manner as to be forced upward or outward, their placo being supplied by succeeding quantities. Those pumps are designed not only for pin-poses of lifting water, but even for transporting nrad, sand and gravel. As a rule they are driven by steam power, as their efficiency depends upon the rapidity of motion. Sorna forms of Cfiiitrifngal pnmp, however, have been designed for use with horsepower and oven for windmills. Closely related to the centrifugal pomps are various forms of rotary water engines, in which the moving parts, instead of traversing forward and back- ters in this way, and, while there are but two annual broods normally, after the grain is stored in a warm place there are often considerably more than two broods, and the increase is very rapid. Besides'the ordinary methods of cleaning granaries, it is a good idea to close them np tight and evaporate carbon bisulphide in them, which will destroy all insect life that may remain in them. Another class of vermin to be guarded against is rats and mice, and special precautions to this end should be taken in constructing the place of storage. It is much better to have it at some little distance from other buildings, raised from the ground on posts, the tops of the posts being covered with inverted pans mads of galvanized sheet iron in order to prevent the rats climbing in. Doors should close quite tight, and any openings that are left for ventilation should be covered with fine gauze to keep out the weevil insect and the moth. It is worth while to pay a good deal of attention to the details of storage, for it is always attended with some waste, and the waste may be easily large if done carelessly. After the grain has been stored it should be examined occasionally in order to see whether it is being attacked by any destructive insect which may have gained access to the granary in spite cf the precautions taken. If any of these pests are found, an immediate application of bisulphide of carbon is the proper remedy. Never use this remedy, however, without remembering the inflammability of its gases. No artificial' light or fire of any kind should be permitted where it is being used, and its fumes, if inhaled, aore quite poisonous. Stavo Silos. In a bulletin from the Ontario Farmers' institute is depicted a round stave silo 16 feet in diameter and 2-i feet A Wiscoiuin Soldier Whole Thoafht o Home iMpfred Mercy. General Roljeit E. Lee, the Confeder ate commander, owed many years ol life to the leniency of Thomas W. Bur ton, a well to do farmer of county. Burton enlisted in an Ohio reg iment at the beginning of the war. •was an expert woodsman and a crack shot and had lived in Virginia severa years in the fifties. His experience in woodcraft and knowledge of the coun try adjacent to the James river and around Richmond commended him for the duties of a scone, and early in 386^ he received orders to report for specia duty. He served as scout until wound ed at Chancellorsville in May, 1863, He was discharged, and a few years later came to Wisconsin and engaged in farming. He attended the G. A. B. en camprnent at Buffalo and related the story of General Lee's escape from death to the group of veterans in the smoking car. "Yes,' ; he said, "I could have killed Lee as easily as a boy would knock a trapped woodchuck in the head, but I didn't. It was early in the war—the day that Lee took command of the Confederate army of Virginia—and the death at that time of the ablest leader of the rebel forces might have had a powerful effect on the fate of the Con A STAVE SILO. gives entire CENTKIFCGAL PCMP. ward the length of the cylinder, revolve around in it or in several portions oi cylinders lying side by side. These also depend for efficiency upon rapid motion and are so constructed that ordinary mnddy water does not injure them. Besides the types described there are a number of hydraulic engines, such as tarns or modified siphons, which depend 'or their efficiency upon the msnennim af a coltunn of water suddenly brought to wet The ramming force of this large joliunn sends forward a small part of She total amount to a higher elevation iban that of tbe source uf the main supply.

This silo is placed two feet below the surface. In such a case pieces of old lumber should be put around the outside to prevent the earth, banked up to shed surface water, from coming in contact •with the staves, (The boards were removed from the front when the photo •wns taken.) When commencing to fill, do not be alarmed if you csn see through the cracks. The damp silage will swell and the cracks will be tight in 34 hours. Beware of knotholes or places in the edges of the boards that do not fit. Tack a piaoe of tar paper over them. Try the hoops after the silo is filled a few days, and if too tight slacken the nuts, or there is danger of bursting the hoops. The only bottom required is the earth itself. It should be banked a little bn the inside to keep the air from coming in under the planks. It is advised in building any kind of a silo to get as much as the depth situation will permit (up to 35 feet), and thereby reduce the surface exposure as much as possible. It should not be less than 20 feet The following table, according to Prairie Panner, will give the capacity near enough for practical purposes. It is safe to estimate 50 cubic feet per ton and 4>< tons for each animal during winter: . Height of silo. , 20ft. 23ft. 25ft. 90ft. Diameter of silo. Tons. 10 feet 31 federacy. Lee sat on a horse not over 20 feet from where I lay concealed behiac a log. For five minutes my rifle covered his heart and my fingers rested on the trigger. I might have shot him dead and could have escaped without trouble, but I didn't. Lee was a great man, and I have been thankful always that -I did not shoot.'' "Did Lee ever know of his escape?" asked the man with the Sixth Wisconsin artillery badge pinned on his lapel. "Yes. After the war I wrote to him about it. He sent me this letter. " And Mr. Burton produced a sheet of paper yellowed by age, the writing faded and barely legible. It bore the signature, "E. B. Lee," and was as follows: EICHBOSD, Va., Feb. 1, 1888. T. W. Burton, Bacine: DEAR Sis—Your favor of the £0th ultimo at hand. I think I remember the day to which you rofei-. I had, on the day previous taken command of the troops (C. S. A.} about Richmond and, in company with General G. W. Smith, whom I «ucceodod, made a personal examination of the field. I do not doubt your statement, and while (several words here illegible) God, I thank you. Cordially, E. E. LEE. "After the battle of Seven Pines," Mr, Burton began his story, "our troops took up a position on both sides of the Chickahominy, our left reaching into Chickahominy swamp. I was attached to General Si Casey's division of Keyes' corps as a scout and had spent several days in working through the big Chickahominy swamp. One afternoon—it was June 2 or 8, I think—I was in the swamp between our lines and the rebs. A little creek ran through the swamp and into the Chickahominy. I'had sat down on a log behind a sumac or some other small bush, when I heard something moving through the bushes on the other side of the stream. I dropped down behind the log and swung my rifle over, cccking it, and as I did so two raon in gray rode into plain view. At a glance I knew one to be Lee, and the other I surmised—correctly, it appeared later—was General Smith. Joe Johnston had been wounded in thei fight of Seven Pines, and Smith had succeeded him, and Lee, we knew, in turn had succeeded Smith, and I held the lives of both of them.—one at least—in my hand. "The Confederate leaders rode out of the bushes and down to the edge of the brook and let their horses drink. They were talking earnestly, and I heard Stuart's name mentioned. They probably were discussing plans for the raid his cavalry made around us a few days later. "Well, Lee and Smith <sat on their horses and talked. My rifle sights covered a spot on Lee's gray coat directly over his heart. Then I thought I'd get the two in line and kill them both. Twice I pressed the trigger to kill Lee, and once I started to pull to kill both. Why didn't I? I thought of my wife and babes back in Ohio, and then of Lee's dear onee. Tears came into ray eyes, and when I got the mist out of them the party was riding away. It would have been rnnrder, ;• !, praise God, my hands are clean.''—i. - ^. oJk Sentinel GOLD DUST WASHING POWDER the ivorM's bc?t r:,:rrv.v!i<>mv in 4-J»ou:id ',.- .>:::;,• by "••IR'IAXK COMPAXY, Injurious worn?.
