If I were going to irrigate tea "
acres of level land, I would make
my reservoir in the center extend-r
ing from one side to the other, ex
cavating about twenty feet wide
raising the embankments four feet
above the level. After the excava
tion was completed I would
thoroughly pulverize the inside sur
face of the reservoir, then let in'
water sufficient to make a stiff
mortar, with which I would puddle
the bottom and sides of the part
excavated. The embankment -will
not need puddling as it will be s-uf-
ficiently solidified by the process of
placing it. I would then situate a
twelve foot vaneless folding mill
at each end of the reservoir, with a
four inch cylinder and a two inch
discharge pipe, and would connect
a float to the throw out wire of the
mill, so that when the reservoir is
full the mill will go out of the
wind, and when the water recedes it
will commence operating again.

reservoir, box outlets, not less than

which should be six inches above
the level of the land to be irrigated,
and connected with the elevated
ditches. The elevated ditches
must be at right angles with
the reservoir and the crop
planted at right angles with the
ditch. The water should be per
mitted to run to the end of the ele
vated ditch, then open it between
the rows to be irrigated; .the flow
from a four inch stream of water
will carry force enough to extend to
the end of the rows. When suffi
ciently watered dam up the elevated
ditch and open up the next two
rows, and so continue until that
division of the land is properly
served, and you will then know how
to treat the balance. "R. R. Gas
