Problems That Confront Hie Irrigator.
A simple form of depressed-bed
irrigation, and one which is readily
available for home garden work in
the arid region, miy be called
"ditch-bank irrigation." It aims
to use the water pcreolat ing from a
raised ditch, which will moisten the
Slope of the bank and tlic sou tor n
min distance outward from its

old permanent ditch of the Spanish
.ettlers, which was opened out from
a stream on a grade favoring a slow
flow, and whatever laud on each
side was thus moistened was used
for n few onions, beans, anil pep
pers, which were about the onl
vegetables these settlers required,

,1 sort of a combination of the old
Spanish practice with some part ol
the more systematic depressed-bed
practice of the Italian murket gar
deners. The method is to plow in
deeply a good covering of manure
and harrow thoroughly until the
land is well settled. Then find a
direction in which the land is near

jows.to form a ridge. Rake over

narrow ditch with tlie Hoc. connect
the head of this ditch with the wat
er supplv and run in a small stream,
aiding its course with a little cut
ting and filling until it runs evenly
the whole length or the ridge. This
will settle the ground, and some
smoothing with the rake will be
needed. When the ground is In
good shape, sow the seed or set the
plants along the top and sides of
the ridge and along the base- also.
If the soil is not too leachy, the
water will percolate slowly and
evenly and moisten the soil without

A very Important modification of
the furrow system is the raised bed,
which, under certain circumstances
is of great value in the vegetable
and small-fruit plantation. The
raised bed is nn elevation between
two irriiMititur furrows. The field
is laid off in tmrtow lands and sev
eral furrows thrown together so as
to bring dead furrows about four
feet apart, making long bods ex
tending down the grade with their
surface raised several inches above
the old level. The motive is to ar
langc a plant- lied with a water
course on each side aud below its
surface level The whole plan is
just the opposite of the depressed
bed with raised ditches already de
scribed, and is obviously to meet
quite different conditions. It is es
pecially suited to a rather heavy
soil in which water will move well
laterally, rise well, and be retained.
Irrigation is accomplished by hold
ing water for a time in the ditches.
Where the ground is sloping it is
held in levels by dirt dams or by
cloth or metal slums, placed at in
inrvuls as reouired to raise the
water nearly to the ground surface.
The arrangement lias several an
vntitnees for the market gardener
anil is largely used by thoge of for
eign birth, who tely upon -11111111
ivnrt and desire to currv as nianv
plants as possible per acre; for their
rents lor rich land innr cuits are
usually high. It enables them to
plant iu close rows and in starting
young plants it gives standing wa
ter alongside, which they can easily
flirt out with a pan or shovel when
they thtnk a little sprinkling is tic
sired. The Italian gardeners have
a knack of doing this which is very
The chief advantages, however,
arc thedistribution of water beneath
the surface, which lessens the need
of surface cultivation, and when
the vegetables are well grown obvi
ates the decay which comes to foli
age by contact with a moist surface.
The same is true of the use of raised
beds for strawberries when grown
on the heavier loams or when the
light, shallow loams overlie hard-
pan and require frequent irrigation.
Another very important advaiir
tage of the raised bed lies in its
adaptation to growth of vegetable
and strawberries durinz the rainy
season of seniitroDic.il climates. Not
only is the raised bed more reson
sive to the greater warmth which
comes to the air at intervals, and
consequently promotive of winter
growth of vegetables, but it also
escaoes the .sunersaturation which
long rains may occasion. The deep
ditches then act us open drains for
the escape of the surplus water.
The system would seem to be wide
ly available where there exists both
the need of irrigation and the dan
ger of excessive rainfall, according
to varying weather conditions.
