Short Talk With Farmers
RETAIRIN'G DAMAGES FROM GAINS.
The recent extraordinary rains
have brought to light all the weak
points on the farm, and the farmer
conld not spend a few days more
profitably than ia studying them
and devising plans to strengthen

water coming down from woodland
or uncultivated Gelds is very great.

a ditch breaks over the trouble very
generally is below the point at
which the break occurs. Clean out,
therefore, not only at the break but
as far below as may bo needed.
If land has been terraced, some
of these have . doubtless been cut
through more or less. Some defect

subsequent plowing about Uiem

tratiDg on these may have washed
through them. If so rectify re.
store the level build up the gap,
driving down stakes and using turf,
so that the accident will not be
likely to happen again ; and sow
these mended spots at once in grass
or grain to hold them fast. Dou't
be discouraged because your ter
races have failed somewhat. They
will get right after a little if yon
help them judiciously from time to
time. But mast be watchful, and
not let things go wrong too far be
fore he corrects or stops them.
Now, while the ground is soft and
in plowable condition, and there is
comparative leisure on the farm, is
a good time to establish terraces in
stubble fields. Kan oft the lines,
throw np the double furrows, mak
ing a bed, say two feet wide, with
the middle of it unbroken and firm,
and sow rye or grass freely on these
beds to strengthen them with their
roots. By next spring they will be
firm enough to withstand ordinary
rains. It is better to make terraces
in the fall and let them settle and
become firm through the winter.
Those heavy rains bring clearly
to view also the necessity ol erect
ing barricades across bottom lands
where the fall is such that the
water scours them. This is es
pecially true of the branch bottoms.
Many ot these have great fall, and
the water in lreshets washes out
corn ant sweeps off the soil
erecting barricades at narrowest
points and at judicious distances,
of the water may be
checked, the soil saved and per
haps a rich deposit made upon it.
It willow stobs are driven down
along these barricades, theyare apt
to grow and make permanent ob
structions. It is well also to look
after the banks of streams and stop
excessive caving iu at any point.

bank. These are eminently cases
iu which a stitch in time saves nine.
The banks ot streams ought to
slope very gently and be sodded in
grass. Steep banks will cave.
Kafts and other obstructions should
be removed. Such work is too
often left until spring. It should
be looked after all through the
year. There is no excuse for neg
lecting it now, when work in the
crops is not pushing. Much profit
able work might also be done now
in filling in gullies and incipient
washes with brush, woodscraps,
etc. The davs are long and weath
er warm, and much more
done now than in cold, short days
of w inter. Bare, galded spots may
also be covered with loaves or trash
of any kind that comes to hand.
In short, go over the farm carefully
aud note every point where a lick
in season may do good, and put it
iu right then and there. W. L. J.,

A Snake Swallows a l'iir.
.lasper Brvan, living out ou the
river east of town, relates are-
markablo incident between a pig of
' , , , . ,.
his and a rattlesnake. A hue sow
and pigs used to go in the river
sw.imi'. and frequently the sow
would mmiur for her slons with one
tug short, which so worried friend
Brvan that he mastered his forces
and went in search of the pigs.
He had not been in the swamp
long before he was startled by the
peculiar Jsound of the rattles, and
upon investigation found that a
snake had swallowed a pig, but the
little grunter, not being satisfied
with the ccntiuement, had actually
kicked its feet through the belly of
the snake and was walking about
trving to find its wav out ot the
woods, with its head still enclosed
in the lower part of the snake's
body. The snake was promptly
killed, and found to contain six
teen rattles. The pig was carried
home and is doing well. Marks

GaLvlston, Aug. 7. The election re

and came in slowly. Those received up
to midnight did not increase the ma

thus far against the amendment TS 000.
Chicago, Aug. 7. The Times' special
from Fort Worth. Texas, says: Last
night a number of men and bovs were
' collected on the public fquare, engaged
in firing anvils and discharging lire-
works to honor of the victory won in
the State by the Anti-prohibitionists,
when an accident occurred that has
already resulted in two deaths and in
all probability another will follow. A
keg of powder had been secured for the
occasion, and one of the boys seated
himself thereon, when eome one from
the other side of the square fired a
rocket which struck the keg of powder,
causing a terrific explosion. James
