Draining Wheat Field. If no other method has been devised for draining wheat fields, which are sometimes too wet, it will pay to plow furrows from the lowest spots to some still lower point outside. The drought, which has parched even the low lands this year, will probably bo succeeded by an unusually large rainfall, which will make low fields, which havo not been drained, extremely wet. Every experi enced wheat grower knows that if water is allowed to stand upon the ground late in the fall the crop will not only be di rectly Injured thereby, but will also be liable to be cverely damaged by "win ter killing;" and it should be his aim to prevent, as far as possible, both of these evils. A heavy ruin will do little dam age to a wheat "field if provision is made for the prompt removal of the surplus water, while a moderate rainfall upon undrained land which is already too wet will cause the destruction of "many of plants, and largely reduce the possible yield of the crop.
