Problems That Confront The Irrigator.
Irrigating- on a Hillside.
One ofthc best examples of high
clan jtication which has been ob
served is the watering of a field of
notatoes on a htllsiile It cost the
owner and irrigator of thin piece of
ground three years of hard labor
and bitter experience to learn to
run his furrows between tows in
such, a way as to prevent scouring.
At first lie attempted (o rlih his fur
rows diagonally across the hillside,
but the grade was too steep and the
water scoured the furrows, while
his crop of potatoes wn3 a failure
owing to the lack of water at the
head of his rows atid the over
abundance at the lowcf ends. The
tic.-ct year he ran his furrows around
the hill, but they did not conform
to the contour of the ground suffi
ciently to altogether prevent scour
ing, and his crop was poor. Final
ly, he has fitted the curve of his
furrows to the contour of the hill in
such a way as to prevent nil .scour
ing, and now his crop 6'f potatoes
from this hillside is as good as any
crop he raises on comparatively
Cure of Laterals.
Laterals, like machinery, need
more of less constant attention when
in use. If they are neglected,
breaks, leaks, ana blocking of the
channel may occur, und probably
at a tilne when water in most utiud
ed. A heavy lorm may cntiws the
washing out of portion of the
lower bank in the lateral, especially
011 a hillside. Such n break uitist
be hpeedily repaired. Unceasing
annoyance and trouble in the oper
ation of latentU is caused by goph
ers, or prairie squirrels, which bur
row holes on hillside slopes and
will burrow 'from the bed or side of
a canal or lateral down through the

but vsf7 'oon uttain juch nropor
tions as to eiidaugcr the lateral
banks. Any method used to ex
terminate pest! like gophers and
prairie dogs is n tedious one. A
method frequently adopted is to
drown them out, but this is ndt al
ways successful. Ilcfore the water
h turned into the canal, a ditch
rider goes down the line of ditch
blocking all the lower holes or exits
from the burrows that may be dis
covered After the lower holes are
blocked the water is turned into the
canal, filling the burrows and
drowning the gophers. Of course
many .holes may escape attention,
and Careful supervision of the canal
and its banks must be exercised
whenever gophers are numerous.
Many formulas for poison have
been compounded and successfully
used for exterminating prairitf dogs
and pocket gophers. The Kntiins
experiment station has recently
published a valuable bulletin on the
subject of "Destroying Prairie Dogs
and rocket Gophers.
Laterals becohic blocked by the
caving of the upper banks or the
trampling of ooe stock or by the
deposit of refuse from the main
canal, which may collect in one
spot nnd form an imperfect dam.
The laterals must lc kept clear of

Cost of Applying Water.
The cost of applying water to
crops varies greatly according to
the skill of the irrigator, the con
tour of the fields, and the available
head of wnter. The laud nil one
farm may have : bloplug aiirface
well adapted fur the application of
water, and 011 another a rolltig,

t,fuic and labor must be put in

spent in irrigating the ramc area
The method used m Irrigating dif
ferent crops must also be taken into
consideration. It takes much more
time for one man (d Irrigate an arrc
of potatoes by the furrow system
than an acre of wild or native hay
by the flooding system. In the
first instances the otutocs may be
irrigated by running water through
every other furrow, which is often
done in the first watering of jwta
Iocs. Ou the other hand, to irri
gate an acre of wild or native hay
may require duly the few moments
necessary to turn enough water
from a lateral to cover the entire
aere. It Is therefore difficult to
state even approximately the cost
of applying water to crojis. Gov

' Alfalfa liny for Hogs,
The Kansas experiment station
has recently reported the results of
experiments made during the fall
of 1898 to test the value of alfalfa
hay fed to pigs receiving all the
grain they would cat.
The pigs, averaging 125 pounds
