Basement questions for Bruce M, or anyone else

I was digging up my thin basement floor to re-cement
areas that had risen, and to add drainage tiles around
the perimeter, when I found some 3-1/2" terra cotta pipes.
Each pipe was about 12 inches long with an approximate
2 inch gap between them. Could this be some previous
water controll system?

P.S. I have also looked into those interior water-channel
type baseboard systems that direct water into a sump.
I haeard that there's an article in a past Family Handiman (?)
magazine that showed how to make one out of plastic gutters
cut in half and inverted. I need info on what kind of glues
to use, etc. If you have seen the article, or know what
I talking about, please help. Any advise would be great.
