Oorers do not ulwaya grow as read
Ily or as vlgoroualy as might be ex
pected from the richness of the soil. In
recent years It litis been discovered
by scientists that the growth of plants
of this class (clovers, teas and beans)
la deM?iulent to some extent on the
presence of sum II nodules or bunches
jii the roots. These nodules contain
bacteria which In some mysterious way
issist the roots In taking up food from
the will. If these bucterta are not
present In the sdl the clovers will be
likely lo make poor .growth Indeed,
alfalfa may not make tiny growth. If
the proper kind of bacteria are sup
plies) ami the Inoculation nf soil and
root Is stim'ssful the plants will show
eitru vitality.
Cultures containing these bacteria
have been sent out to farmers from
the Ontario Agricultural College for
the past four years, with directions
for" applying -to the fields that are be
ing seeded with clover. Last season
JOU fanners" reported that their alfalfa

was do gain. With alalka clover tba
reports were equally favorable over

that the culture hid Improved the

not so favorable, only 05 per rent bar

The value of early plowing as a

not appreciated fully by farmers, sim

The plow should be started In these

growing soil robbers which should not
be permitted to ripen seed on any
farm, but are now seen in corn fields,
pastures and small grains In many sec

farms where careless methods of han

auch fields are plowed as enrly as pos

A German publication, the Practical
Adviser In Fruit Raising and Garden
ing, states that a new method for keep
ing potatoes and preventing sprouting
consists In placing them on a layer of
coke. Dr. Schiller, of Brunswick, who
has published the method, la of tha
opinion that the Improved ventilation
by means of coke Is not alone responsi
ble for the result, but believes that II
Is due to the oxidation of the coke,
which, however. Is a very slow fine.
Coke always contains sulphur, and It
U very possible that the minute quan
tities of oxide of carbon and sulphur,
which result from the oxidation, mix
ing with the air nnd penetrating among
the potatoes are sufficient to greatly
retard sprouting. Potatoes so treated
are said to keep in good condition an'H
