THE FARM AND GARDEN. Bnrfncoißralnlng •• Draining ■ with Plow and with Tile—Gutting Drains for Tilo vrltlt Ilono.Powormlllow Wells Near null'llngs May Do Used 1 ns GlstornsnTho Bcnson*.»’JL'lio Fruit* Crop—A Pew Things to Consider on d Rainy Day,. From Our Agricultural Correspondent, Ouampaion, ill., May 10,1673. , BUnFAOB-DUAIMAUn. For tbo past Uiroo years, tbo soil has boon bo dry that tbo subject of drainage has nearly gone ’ out of the public mind, though tho “ Farm and . Garden” has often called attention to Its valuo in comparatively dry no well as wot seasons. Though tho rain-fall has not boon excessive thus far, yot, tho evaporation being so slight, it givos ns a soil saturated with water, and .those indlca . tlons load many formers and others to predict a wot season. Do Uiia ud it may, there is no harm in looking at this subject from a practicalstaud point. It is no groat tank to lay off a field into lands of four rods in width, and miming in tho direc tion of tho natural drainage, and then to back farrow thebe lands Is the most convenient ra?‘* tier of plowing them. This loaves a doad- Airrovr ©very four rods, to facilitate tbo surfao r *^ r^nB B 0 * If tho furrows are tamed toward? Lll ° centre for : two, throe, or more years, tho und will bo ridged tip at tho centre, and tho would bo ' come a deep dram. When tho ridgingbos been carried to a satisfactory extent, the plowing is reversed, and the farrows turned toward tho dead-furrows. Tho plowing may bo alternated each year, and thus leave tho land in a good ebapo for drainage. Those who have practiced upon this plan havo had no difficulty in putting in their crops of tho small grnns, for no water can stand on tho lands when tWR managed. ■ Tho value in regard to the holding of plant food, I havo shown Infomwr letters,—tho pres ent object being slmdy to show its value In re gard to Burfaco-wattf. Wo all know thntfiio cultivated pUnts, with a few exceptions,—tuch as tho cranberry and rico,—must liavo a woll-traincd soil,—that io, tbo water In tin soil nust bo in tho form of vapor,—ln ordo' to meet tbo demand of tho crops. Some o/tho coano grasses will hoar con siderable watorbi tbo oiu'ly pari of tho season, but this xnusibo loijsomd ns tho crop roaches maturity ; wlilo all of tVo Braall grains, Indian com, and potatoes cmnot stand in water moro thac a few lours. AH’ of tho land in these crops that Is not so drained fa so much lost to tho farmer. Every low place shoulcbo drained by running furrows for this purpso, and tho Bags or depressions that croof the natural drainage should Iw laid with tiloW soon as tho fanner 1b able todoßo;bnt mill that is accomplished, bo must depend on opd drains for this purpose, mid, in most oases, *ib may bo done with a common plow. Some of tho farms that lie ou tho dividing ridges a i filled witli ponds, and tho most of those will ru'd bo drained with a ditch ing-machine. I km* several forma of this kind (bat hove boon groaiy improved under this mode of treatment. / Tho present pr/o of labor will not warrant tho outlay for tfldlraiiiing, unless wo could out tho dralnu with borso-powor. ’ln Indiana there are maclnes for this purposo, but of their sucfiHS very few facts Jiovo come to tin public. I have “soon tho machines attho Indiana State Fair, and tboy appeared to be very well adapted to tho work; but tho onormms demand for tho right to use would bo liablj to rule them out for common use.. A machmo thni can bo made and sold at a profit for S2OO, whci topped off with a patont-fco of from 8100 tc 8000, is not inviting. Tho prin ciple upon wlich those machines is constructed lias boon in uro for moro than seventeen years, to my porsoud knowledge, and nil that is neces sary is to male tho machine strong, and adapted to tho soil tint requires draining. Two or throo wot seasons ii succession would tend to dovolop such a mochiio, and also to introduce among us drain-tilo fictorios, all of which wo will find useful. / Tbo mosiof our Roils aro a clay-loam, and will not roquiroan average of 40 rods of tile-drain to tho acre. The water sinks awuy into our soil in ft few boms, except in places where it accumu lator in tRo duprcsHlomi, and, if those are laid with tilo, tho higher land maybe loft in its natural condition. TURN-WELT,9. A well 80 foot (loop, that was about 100 foot from ouo conior of my horao-bnm, and that fur nished about a wash-tub of water daily, was placed on rapport with tbo oaves on tho south fildo of tho barn, by a lino of 2-inch tilo, laid 2 foot deep, lo tho corner of tbo bam and along under eaves. It was some weeks bo foro wo had ft respectable shower; but., when it camo, tbo woll war nearly Alloa With water; and, from that thno forth, thore was too want of water, ns all tho water from that sec tion of tho roof. 21x30 foot,'appeared to have found its way into tho woll. At lirst it was my Intention to havo put conductors on tho roof, and to carry tho water down through a hod of gravel to tho tilo, but 1 soon found that to bo' unnecessary, and so I had the tilo extended along tho front side, with tho result os stated. Tho cost of this was 3 cents a foot for tho tilo. and two days work of ouo man in putting it In. booidon tho hauling from tho depot. That Job saved mo nt least SSO last winter in extra work that would have been oxnouded in taking horses and cows to a distant woll. A 1-foot wolL B foot deep, makes a pretty good cistern, ana will bo found of no small value in a dry season. At this time ttio well is full of water, as are most wells ; and, when the water-supply gets short. I shall sink another well, so as to take tho drip -sings of tho roof from tho other side of tho barn, 'ho soil is a clay-loam, but a sandy or gravelly Boil would not bo quite as good for tho purpose, as tho wator might bo absorbed in tho soil, in stead of following tho tilo to the well. Neither manure or stock is allowed to como in contact with this drainage, and tho water is nearly as soft as rain-water, and without tho least un pleasant taste or smell. In a dr)’ season this plan will ho found valu able, not only to secure a supply of stock water, but for tho house also. In tho casooftiio bouse, tbo drain mavbo filled with, sand and gravel, instead of.using tbo tilo. Now tho wator that used to stand in pud dles along tho side of tbo brick wall of tbo'bam bnsemont, disappears at onco, and finds its way to tbo well, and tbonco, ns wo now have a sur plus, soaks out through tbo soil on tho lowor side of tho woll, as tho ground from this, as from most farm-buildings, slopes away from it. There aro fow farmers in this State, during tho f»aat two or threo years, who did not suffer for bo want of water, when $lO invested in tbo tilo drain would bavo glvon them great satlnfac tiou. It may bo ralbor lato to toll of ibis now, wbon tho rams como too often, but to us it is a new fact, for tbo Arst Umo fully demonstrated, and tho reader can ultord to treasure it up for future use, for rain and drouth bavo their own appointed time, and ovon Old Probabilities, with his low areas, has only boon able to penetrate Boiao forty-oight hours in advance, and * then ho sees but dimly, as ail of tbo groat storms that bavo mado tbo winter and spring of tiro current year famous, gavo him little notice in advance. THE SEASON. April 27,1872, “The Farm and Garden” has this in regard to tho weather: "Tbo past week £aa boon dry and windy, with tbroatouinga of rain. Winter wheat is slowly improving, and, if wo bavo seasonable rain hereafter, will glvo us a small crop. Corn-planting will bo general in this part of tho State on Monday, tho 20th. All spring crops promise an abundant harvest.” May 0. it adds : ‘‘Tho weather continues cool, and tho evaporation from tho surfaco is limited, and, though tbo soil is apparently dry, yet tbo seeds aro all coming up and making good growth. This shows that tboro aro other con- i ditions than plenty of rain that make up tbo value of tbo season. It is not so much tho quantity of rain as ia other conditions of tho soil. The coolness of tho season retards co operation. and tho soil is not robbed of tbo vft pur that rises from below, and tho soil being in a very pulverulent condition, the seeds aro enabled, to take up sufficient moisture to immro gorminn-' tion. Tboro ia little thunder and lightning, as tho atmosphere is fully charged with electricity, and tbla Is also a good pmon for tho coming props. Tho orchard, at tins writing, is ono shoot of Hoorn, (riving promise of an abuudaut crop of fruit. Tbo price of corn is 25 cents, and has brought tbo fanner down lo a pretty rigid econ omy, and tbo luxuries must bo given up for tho present; but no ouo thinks of failure, and busl toosii, though dull, Is on a safe, cash foundation.” Tbo spring of 1871 was about three weeks in early spring with latoTfrosta. On May 1 the aorvioo-borry was m full bloom, and tbo rod-bud followed in a fow days, and tbo wild plum on tbo 4tli, with- a few blossoms of tho May cliorry on tbo 7th. apples on the Bib, and tho psas wore while with bloom yesterday morning, ad u warm rain during tbo night made tho orchard quite gay. Tho Biliorlnu ovab-anplcn wore fully out on tho oth. while tho blue plums »ro limb opening. It is too early to predict pboul tbo fruit-crop, an it is impossible to fully determine tho result of tho wlntcr-damago. Bo far no tlio bloom 1b any indication, thoro -will bo a fair crop of ohorrloo, apples, pears, and a few plums. An for gropes, .rasp berries, and blacKbwrlos,. wo mnet toko more time. With im tbo poach-oron is outof question, and tbo aro killed to tho ground. Tho plum and pear-trees have also Buffered much, and manv trooH are dead, and I shall not bo disappointed If many of tbo cherry-trees now hi bloom are really dead at tho trunk,—the stock upon which tboy am grafted being loss hardy than tbo graft. Homo little ploughing has been done for corn, but I hoar of no planting ns yot, while tbo throe past days have boon a partly steady drizzle.— not oiir western 'pour-downs, but a steady, old fashioned drizzle, that was wont to semi the boya.Uohlng; but, unfortunately, wo of tho frairio have little opportunity to got the rhouma lam in this pleasant manner. Wo hnvo had very little thunder thus far. »ntl I take this to bo a good indication; thunder storms dro.'uot a pleasant aspect ot tho uoohou to tbo farmer, for they botok*u too changeable weather, oven If they d° uot bill tbo clucks in tbo Khali, or sour tho milk., ■ . ; ' THo small jr-fliß are coming on Tory finely whore tho «urfaco-walor is not permitted to stand. tho only crop Hint wo need bo anxious Qljp.c ifl that of corn, and this is no groat cause' j£ complaint as yet, for nearly all of the groat crop of 1870 was planted after May 10, the weather having boon very wot to that (fate. Tho price of com 1s just whoro It was a year ago at this point,.2s cents, and dull nt that for want of buyers; but it soou wont np to 40 cents, and thou rapidly doolluod to 80. • SOME IIAINV-DAY TltOUCntTfl. Farming is a long ‘way from .being ruined, though tho high prices amt extravagance of the past few years have given it a sovoro shook; while tho enormous taxes uro tho worst skoloton In tho closet, that will not down until tho pooplo rise In thoir might and purify tho political at mosphere. Wo have had plenty of resolutions on tho subject, and if’iatimo that wo wont to work. Wo havo taxed ourselves in building competing railroads, to find tho taxos swept into .tbo bauds of tho managers, and tho roads com bined against ns. Thoro aro two now roads pro jected through this comity, that tho farmers aro to control. It will bo tbo old story s Now yon hco it. and, now you don’t. Farmers are Bubscribing who have no orchards, bams, or tbo ordinary comforts of a farm. To all such I liavo to say, 801 l your farms and go at oomo otbor bnnlnoßS; don’t bo swindled by a sot of men, ovou if they are fanners, who are to make money out of tho enhanced value of real estate. 1 repeat, Either bo n farmer, or go into some other business ; but don’t run into debt for rail road stock, that will most surely slip through your lingers. When railroads will pay upon a tralfio basis, mou of capital will build them. Just at UUs tlmo. wo are getting a little too radical, and, when the dust clears away, wo shall find things much as they wore before,—an army of dealers and middlemen disposing of tho farm er’s surplus produce, and bringing liira back, ?oods in exchange as ho may nood : capitalists ending him money at 1,2, or 8 percent per month, or his bad management may dictate; railroads being built that shall levy tribute whenever pos sible ; and then tho Bamo old political hacks will havo tho old play under a now heading, and craoioußly permit tho farmer to give them a now license to tux and plunder him. lb is true that tho old bummer is not to approach you in par son,—not ho, for ho don’t want an office : but bis friends are pushing him ahead, and insist that Ids fidelity, ability, and long experience fit him for tho'staclou, and tho local papers aro setting him up in double-loaded loaders at 60 cents a lino. , , While tho rain is pouring doyrn, lot us look at those things as tbov aro. Stop tbo leaks in tho roof of tlio corn-crib,—for old com may bo of aomo valuo uoxt autumn, ovou if you grow a fair crop this season. Do not * fret about what you caunot help, and *do not allow tho politician to rule you, whether ho stops forth from tbo shop, tho store, tho law-oflico, or tho farm; soloct your men for office, and don’t give your veto for any ouo whoso friends aro so anxious to hnVo him elected as to canvass tho country and pack granges and fannora’ clubs in his favor. This movement of tho pooplo is bringing a groat deal of trash to tho surface, and wo should beware of tbo nss in tho lion's skin. In ihonamoof the pooplo wo aro likely to bo cheated out of our rights. That wo have boon governed too much is solf-ovidont, audit might bo well to soo if wo cannot havo a Uitlo loss of it in tho futuro. It la time that wo put a llttlo more businoss niaimgomout into our affairs. Wo may often employ ourselves bottor at homo of a Saturday afternoon, rather than go to town under tho plea of buying groceries, but roally to spoud tho llmo at the saloon, and in gossip that adds neither to our personal appearance nor to our morals. Tho other day I saw a fanner baud his wife 25 cents, with directions to got its value in nails; and, as soon as she de parted on this mission, he dovo into a saloon, whore ho spent 20 cents, and was ready to meet lior near tho hardware store, looking as innocent as though ho bad done noth ing hut turn furrows all his life. All farm ers do not act thus ; in fact, tho groat majority are honorable men and Christian gentlemen, but there are too many of those who am ready to turn political bummers for tho'men who are Booking olllco, and those are sure to como to tho surface in our fanners’ mootings. Rural. AMERICAN TRACT SOCIETY. Tbo friends, patrons, and colporteurs of tbo American Tract Society aro informed that, for tbo purpose of scouring greater cfiicicucy, and lor carrying out more fully tho aims and objects of tbo Society, some changes bavo boon mado in tbo organization of tho work, Tbo two Agencies known as tho St. Louis and Chicago Agencies are united under tho name of tbo Interior Agency, tho office of which, for the preoent, is at Chicago, 111.

I bavo an original abstract, mado before tbo fire by Sbortall & Hoard, covering a subdivision of 10 acres (0G lots), of which I wanted copies, and, upon application to thoi r successors, learned the cost would be S6O (ono for. each purchaser of a lot would bo $5,760). I stated this fact to my lawyer, aud learned tbo priceless advantage offered by tho county authorities, in that I could havo tho original abstract recorded, and thou got tbo Recorder to mako tiio copy. Tills 1 did. aud, instead of n two months’ delay, I paid $6.50, and, on tiio fourth day, received tho original ab stract back, and also a corlillod copy under seal of tbo court. Besides being ono-toiilli tho cost, my abstract is now spread upon tho county records, and shows tltlo to all purchasers in tiio eighty acres down to tho subdivision, aud any ouo interested cau got a copy or application.

Tho Ufo of another victim to Intoxicating drinks was tragically ended yesterday afternoon, at 4 o’clock, John White, a' Oormau, 82 ysKrs of ago, was a sober and industrious young man a few years ago. Ho learned tho stono-cuttcr’s trade, and took unto hllnoolf a wife. Ho was very prosperous. But his prosperity mined him. Ho began to frequent saloons, and, In a abort time, became a habitual drinker. Last week tho snake-mania took possession of him. Ho raved flbout, tore his hair, and abused his family, but still saw tho same horrible apparitions, wherein snakes wore so prominent. Yesterday morning, in his madness, lie took a razor from bis drawer ond out his throat from car to oar. Of course hla.troubles wore at once ended. Ho loaves a wife and four children. Jayno’s Expectorant. From trustworthy data It has boon estimated that at lo.mt one-fourth of all persons bom In tho United States have at birth, lungs in a tuberculous condition, and iu consequence ore predisposed to pulmonary complaints; yet it is equally well established that this predisposition need not end in consumption, aatluna, or oay other lung disease, if duo caro and wntahful nees l»o observed, imd nil exciting causcii promptly treated as tboy arise. It is In just such cases Dr. D, Jnyuo’n Expectorant oxerdscs its moat beneficial ef fects, and has produced tho largest jirojwriloa of its cures. Besides promptly removing coughs and colds, which, whoa left to themselves aro tho moot common cause of tuberculous development, tho Expectorant allays any inllammation which may exist, ana by pro moting easy expectoration cleanses tho lungs of tho substances which clog them up, and which rapidly de stroy when suffered to remain.
