For tluv melioration of heavy clay land they are exceptionally vnluablo. This ts particularly so with the ashes ot soft eeal, as such usually are reduced al most to a dust. Coal ashes have a fertlllier value. This opinion, how ever. Is not held generally. Tho coil beds contain phosphorus, potash, nitro gen and lime, as well iu tho other loss Important Ingredients. When the orig inal trees out of which wero formed the coal beds were reduced to coal the mineral elements remained In them, and consequently those saiuo elements so with tho ashes. Ono reason why people have formed an Idea' that coal ashes contain no fer tility Is that the trees now grown have In them less carbon than these In tho old days and thus the percentage of other elements to carbon Is prob ably greater now than thon. which gives a larger value to our wood ash, but does not annihilate tho nluo n tho coal ashes. Ashes can bo used 'o advantage without sifting, but larg quantities of half-burned coal aro by some considered a detriment to the soil. Kural World. !oot lloic ?cnee.
