The southern counties were affected
by the drouth to such an extent
that some of them now have as

Irrigation Id IIIIdoIn.
It has recently been announced
that an experiment with irrigation
on the far** connected with the
eastern Illinois Hospital for the In
sane near Kankakee, has resulted in
an unexpected and most pronounced
Utilizing the the pnmpmg plant

additioual expenditure of $1,500 Dr.
Gapen, the Superintendent, has made
it poetihle to irrigate 150 acres of
It involves the furnishing of 50,
000 gallons of water per acre. This
is selflcient to cover an acre a little
less than two inches deep. The sys
tem was put under direction of Mr.
W. II. Harris an employe and lea
er of the band there, who has been
somewhat familliar with irrigation
The results accomplished are well
elated in this comparison: Last
year the crops of the insane asylntn
were ruined by the dry weather, and
it costs the institution about $15,000
'I’ltiu i onr u/illi «n
equal dry season, there is such an
abundance that not a dollar will have
to be expended, and, indeed, there
is a large surplus for slock feed.
The past thee years the thousand
acre farm has suffered so much from
lack of rain that the garden products
have been practically worthless. Last
year fourty acres were planted to
potatoes and did not return sufficient
to make good the seed; cabbages were
dried up; vegetables were no mors
than stalks, and small fruits withered
for lack of water. This year the
fourty acres that last year failed to
pay expenses will furnish from 5000
to bOOO bushel of potatoes. There
are cabbage enough to give cash in
mate of the asylum forty heads. Six
crops of peas have been gathered,
and the crop of radishes and other
vegetables has been sueh a tremen

enlarge the root house ia order to
provide for room for its keeping.

which were set out last spring bore
fruit, and of the thousands of cherry
trees planted since winter not one
Here, then a total outlay of $1,
500 on one hundred and fifty acres
has been returned out of the first
crop, more then ten fold, or mors
then #15,000 for the institution.
And yet as an illustration of irri
gation, it only represents an inciden
tal feature of it. It only serves to
illustrate the immense advantage to
