Dyking .Titlu .Lands. ;
The negotiations for a steam j
dredger by Robert Campbell, are !
progressing favorabjy, and it is to !
be sjneerely hoped that they will be
successful. The plan upon which j
Mr. Campbell proposes to work is
dyke lands on the shares, the size j
size of the shares depending upon ;
the location pf the " land and ' the
amount of dyke required. This
plan ought to enable anyone who
has a piece of tide land to get it
dyked. The profits and benefits to '
be derived by dyking thse lands ,
art too many and various to be i
enumerated here, and too welli
known to need recounting. Lands
that are overflowed by every high
tide, while being the richest and
most most valuable in soils of any
lands, are practically worthless for
any purpose. A few tons of tide
hay is the entire product. With
the land properly dyked the same
land will produce from two to four
tons of good hay to the acre, or
produce an abundant yield of any
other crop to which the climate is
adapted. The land then becomes
productive, valuable and saleable,
so that the owner will receive at)
income from it or dispose of it if he
wishes, at a greatly enhanced val
ue. Dykes made by a iredge aa
much better and have numerous
advantages over hand-made dykes.
In the first place no land is lost by
deep ditches on each side of the
dyke. The dyke is placed closer to
lie bank pud the dirt for the dyke
is taken trom the bottom of the
slough or river, thus not Only mak
ing a dyke but also makes a good
clear boat channel. The dyke is
nicely rounded, and can be sown to
grass, and thus none of the land
will be wasted. The work is more
rapjdlv done and the owner can get
the use of his laud that much soon
er. Land that is properly dyked
will clear from 20 to 40 per acre
annually in a hay crop olone, and
do fully as well when well cultiva
. . .. : 1 ' i
ieu wuii oiuer crops.
It is propescd to take contracts
on land for dyking, the tenor of
which are such that if Mr. Camp
bell, or his assigns, erect a good
dyke of the proper djuiensions, etc.,
that upon completion thereof they
are to receive a deed to a portion
of the land. Several parties have
already signed these contracts and
if enough of them are signed to jus
tify the outlay the machine will be
purchased. In case the dyking is
not completed according to the
contract the contract then becomes
void. It is hoped that all parties
who own tide lauds on the Hay will
investigate the plan, by calling on
addressing Mr. Campbell, at this
place, and sign contracts if they see
fit. We believe that if the proper
interest is displayed by land own
ers, who now are absolutely reap
ing no benefits from their lauds,
the dredger will be her and iu
operation before the season Is over.
Talk it up and help the enterprise
along. It will make a garden spot
