that invariably the leaching from the
bare summer fallow pots carried from
two to over six time as much nitrogen

The first few weeks of leaching In the
fall carry moat of Uie soluble nitrate

leached out of the soil in one month in

it ha been allowed tostand unmolested
it haa produced a dense sod, snd com

Whete It has been re-seeded, or Uie
ground disturbed by harrowing, it ha
made a much belter growth. Around
Uie borders ot fields where the land 1
cultivated tho growth is rank and coarrtk
My opinion ot brooms gras it, tlu.
it hs been somewhat overestimated for
general use; but that It has a plco as a
grass to Ik used In out-of-the-wiy
places, where it can not, on account of
tho nature of the soil, form a dense tod.
Such a place would bo found on atony
land, or rocky hill sides.
It will produce one or two good crops
on farm lands, then It should bo either
plowed up and a crop ot grain taken

This grass, Uko most of tho others, will
do best on rich mo at land; but at the
