MELVIN, STEELE JOHNSON, EDITORS AND PROPRIETORS. SATURDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 12. ABOUT UNDERDRAWING. How Drains An Constructed In Connecticut--Tile Ver.sUH Stoiio Drains. The remarkable wet summer of 1897 was forcible admonition to the farmers of many sections to drain their lands, and they have heeded it. A Cou- uecticot correspondent, -writing to Country Gentleman from Hartford county, says: I do not remember a time vrlieu so many drains were being laid as at present. Farmers who had fields of potatoes not worth digging and tobucco only fit to be plowed Tinder are determined not to have another experience fo costly and disagieeable. If the next .season were to prove as dry as half a dozen preceding the present one, they might secure lair crops, but what the farmers waul is ]ii- suniuce against loss from the effects of Bnrplue water in another wet season. They are acting wisely, for it is probable that the increased yield of their crops duriug tho first ensuing summer of ex- LCbSivo rain will oft'ssct tho cost of drainage. The drains that are being constructed in the valley laHs are almost exclusively of tile. On the rocky lauds away from the Connecticut river some stoiie diaius are being built. When it is an object to rid the land of surface stones, it may be advisable to build stone drains, but tho additional labor required makes a - stono drain more expensive than one of ·tils under almost any circumstances. There is some little variation in the method of making a stone drain, but thu ordinary plan is to lay a row of stones oil each side at the bottom of tho ditch, cover across with flat stones, place a layer of cobblestones on these to a depth of several inches, cover the small stones · with straw or brush to prevent the loose earth from filling tho crevices and fill up the ditch with soil. Owe objection to a drain of this kind is the liability, provided the soil at the tot torn of the ditch is not of equal haul- aess for its entire length, that some of the foundation stones will sink below tho line of the rest. , In this case tho drain is likely to be choked up. Anotner objection is that burrowing animals may 'enter the drain and obstruct it. However, a stone'drain well laid on a hardpan bottom will often remain in position and perform good service for many years. I do not intend to say anything '"to discourage any farmer with au overabundance of loose stones upon his lands from building a stone - drain. Indeed there are many situations where au open , drain, with sloping sides grassed over, is very much better than none. The Bird. Little more than a drift of the air brought into form by plumes. The ^ air in nil its quills, it breathes . through its whole frame and flesh -and glows with air in its flying like . blown flame. It rests upon the air, ; subdues it, surpasses it, outraces it, and hi its J J-,jont is the voice of tho ' air. As -\ -w imagine the wild form of the closed into the perfect form «.. i Bird's wings, so ' the wild voice^of Uit 1f nid into its voice ' rippling through 'ie clear heaven in its gladness, intci_ reting passion through the soft spring nights, bursting into acclaim and rapture at "daybreak or twittering and lisping among boughs and hedges through heat of day like little winds that ruffle the petals of the wild rose. Also on the plumes of the bird are put the colors of the air, the gold of -the cloud that cannot be gathered, the vermilion of the cloud bar, the flame of the cloud crest", the snow and the shadow and the melted blue of the deep wells of llio - sky. All these woven-into .plumes', following and fading along breast and throat and opened wings. And so tho spirit of the air is pnt into this created form and becomes . through 20 centuries the symbol of divine help descending to bless the Hebrew cherubim, the Greek flying angel of victory, and the bird has given its wings to render the conception of angels and thus has influenced religion.--Ruskin. Bow · Road ID Ireland Was Made. The way in which the Irish imagination accounts for the curious notch - in the Devil's Bit mountain, Tipper- "ary.'is indicated in its very name. But-there are two versions of the legend. According to one, it is said that Nickie Ben, just to try how sharp his teeth were, bit a piece off thoupperedge, but, finding it rathei too hard even for his digestion, he -threw it np at Cashel, in the same county, where it has remained ever since. In confirmation of thestoiy '-it is gravely asserted that tho rock 'of Cashel would exactly tit into the gap left in the aforesaid mountain. In Notes and Queries, June 1, 1851, -the tale is told as follows: 'In the Barnnne mountains, near Temple-more, Ireland, there is a large dent ^or hollow, visible at the distance of " 20 miles ant! known.by the name of the 'Devil's Bit.' There is a foolish _ tradition,that the devil was obliged -by one of the saints to make a road for his reverence across an extensive bog in the neighborhood, and so, taking a piece of the mountain in his mouth, he strode over the bog and deposited a road behind him!" --Gentleman's Magazine. Ice From Electricity. Ice from electricity was one of several promises recently extended, by one of tho electrio companies in tho United States to n, number of specially invited guests. Electric heating and'cooking, electrio forging and electric piano playing were all ' down" on the list^of attractions offer- .ed, hut the making of ice in an electrical way seemed likely to be of pre-eminent interest. True, it was, after all, the regular matter of faot *' process carried out with ono of -tha · well known makes of ammonia com, pression machines, Jjut the latter, _- - instead of ..being driven by a steam -; engine in tho usual way,-was con- · ^nected with an electrio motor, which · : .l furnished tho necessary power. It ; simply afforded another illustration ·-of the rapidly extending field of elec- ; trie motor applications and certainly {demonstrated the, making of ice by ,'; electricity, though perhaps somo- /·what differently from what may have been expected by those who at* f tend«l tiw exhibition. -- Gassier'* TALKING ABOUT HOT THINGS. they Are "to He Found In Bfarylanil, Where They Know the Cards. "Talking about hot things," said tho old gambler, "you want to take n, trip down to Leonftrdtown,Md.,an( BCO tho sports in that neck of the swamp play seven up with n tender foot. Lots of tliftt kind of cattlo go browsing down there in tho sum mor, and after they get a fish diunei somebody is sure to run 'em against a game where the deuce al ways counts for the man who plays it. Well, sirs, tho native most al ways gives the other fellow the deal mid the other fellow most generally finds enough in his hand to give ono Tho native plays his cards like light ning, one after another, and then draws in the stakes. His opponen wants to know what he's doing. "'Why,' says tho native, 'I'm game. One I had, and one you gim me, and the one I orter had is three nnd high, lovr, jack and tho game is out. Ain't that right, Jack?" "And Jack, who is looking on Bays, 'Why, sure,' and that settles it." . When Major Shoemaker of the fa mous old liquor firm of Shoemaker Hertzog was alive, he was notec from ono end of the country to the other as the most fearless gamblei in tho country. He would bet any amount of money on any proposition where the chances were any thing like even, and he was as will ing to match quarters for a big bunch, of dollars as he was to play the limit on "singles" ill faro. The late John T. Raymond was an inveterate matcher of coins, and at every theater he visited he was sure to have a bout with some friend who know his penchant. One day Shoo was in New York, and he met Raymond in the barroom of tho Metropolitan hotel witfo a party of New Yorkers. Shoo and the comedian matched for the drinks and then for dollars. Each placed twenty dollars on the bar and removed them one by one, matching each other in turn. The luck broke about even. While the fun was progressing a message camo calling Raymond away for a littlo while, and a young broker, who was also executor of a wealthy estate, volunteered to take tho comedian's place. Of course Shoo was nothing loath, and he was gratified by a sudden change of fortune in his favor. He matched every dollar of the other, who, in turn, was unable to make his coins agree with Shoe's. The broker grew provoked and suggested an increase of the stakes. "Let's match for $10 a go,"he suggested. "A hundred if you wish," said Shoo. So $100 they made it. Luck ran steady to Shoo, and the news got out on the street, and a crowd began to gather. This brought the broker to his senses. "I reckon I had better quit," he remarked. "It wouldn't do to have it said I was gambling in a public place. I'll get my revenge some other time." Thereupon he called for a blank check and filled it out in Shoo's favor for $1,400. Three hours later that check and another $1,000 was in the drawer of the faro table at 312 Broadway, and Shoo, as cool as a cucumber, was on his way to the ferry to take the train for Washington.--Washington Post French Nanl Tactic*. And now, for the first time in his life, he had the opportunity of studying the theory and technio of his profession on a large scale. Admiral la Motte-Picquet, Admiral Count d'Orvilliers, and especially the chief of staff, the Chevalier du Pavillion, wore accomplished tacticians. True it is, their tactics had rarely been able to withstand more than a few broadsides from the unscientific English, but Paul Jones not only grasped the theory fully that naval warfare is a great and farreaching science, but he put it in practice, which the French had singularly overlooked. Then was presented the spectacle, not devoid of humor, of Paul Joues sitting at the feet of theFroneh commanders,, penetrated with admiration at "the French tactic," as he calls it, while 66 French ships of the line hung on to their anchors, closely blockaded by the ignorant English, who were "very deficient in naval tactics," as PatiL Jones wrote. However, things were made even by tho English having the victories, while tho French had the tactics.--"Paul Jones," by Molly Elliot Seawell, in Century. British Admiralty Red Tape. Every one who has to do with the admiralty is familiar with amusing tales of the glorification of red tape. Here is the very latest. Some time ago a workman in one of the dockyards-lost a government candlestick, valued at a few pence. This was considered sufficient excuse for a report by tho local officials to Whitehall. A long correspondence of the approved government office typo ensued, and it is estimated that not less than £5 -was spent in the officials' time, ink 'and paper. After every aspect of the case had been weighed the workman was directed to pay the local officials tho sum of fivepence, being the value set upon this particular candlestick. Of course, if the man had been in private employment, little or no notice would have been taken of such a triviality, or, at most, he would have paid his foreman the value, without any red tapeism.--West- minster Gazette. A Good Grantor Wax. The Farm Journal says: For grafting was we think this is about right: To 8 parts resin and 2 of beeswax add 1 of fallow. Put in an irou pot, heat slowly and mix well. Pour out into cold water and pnll by hand until it assumes a light color; work into sticks and pnt into n cool place till wanted. In using, oil the hands, work the wax until soft aiul press it tightly around the graft and ovnr the cracks. If the day lie warm, it is sometimes better to occasionally moisten the hands with cold water. Wo do not think it necessary to eutor into tho 'minutiae of tho operation of grafting, hut simply to impress upon all the importance of having the inner bark of the stock and ficioua to fit tightly together.
