The fifrures will serve to give an idea of the method of constructing' brash and stone drains, both which are very useful and entirely practicable under certain conditions. Bojrgy land cannot well be drained at first with either stone or tile unless theie is a plank or board laid in the bottom of the ditch, and when there is a large quantity of brush presented, by all means use it in the pioneer work, which may be made to result in bring ing the land under proper cultivation. Dig drains through the marsh about 3 feet deep, and fill them half full of brush, lopping the branches where they prevent the brush from lying close. Place the tops of the branches down stream, as shown in the cut. Over all place a good covering of straw or some other coarse material to prevent the earth from sifting into the drain. If, as is likely to be the case, this brush is constantly immersed in water,...
