the effect of Impressing tlm l.ist with

Washington, Oct. 10 For the gold

plies generally and describes how to
locate and build farm ditcher, prepare
land to receive water, irrlgato staple
crops and how much water to apply.
"Kxperlence throughout the arid re
glon," the report rays, "Is demon
itratlng that the greatest danger to Irri
gated lands Is lack of drainage. Water
applied to crops raises the ground wi
ter, which brings with It the salts dls
solved from tlm soli; capillarity brings
this water to the surface, where it
evaporates, and tho salts accumulate
until all vegetation la destroyed. The
only Insurance against this is proper
drainage, but anything like economy In
the uso of water and thorouph cultiva
tion, which will chock the rlso of
ground water or lessen evaporation,
will decrease the danger."

Washington, Oct. !. Republican

Cuba shall have another opportunity to

only a matter of time. Little Is being

Ho does not believe that the United

in taking over the Island, merely be
