Wheat Growing in California.
We clip the following from an interesting
California letter to the lloston Advertiser
One curious feature of the wheat business
is that the farmer gets two crops for one
seeding, the second year brings a "vol
unteer crop," as it is called growing from
self-sown seed, and needing no attention
whatever. This year's crop scatters itselt
by the wayside and on gnndgronnd;
the field alone, and the farmer gets about
half a crop next yeur, with no labor but
that of harvesting; still let the field alone,
and yeur alter next there is still auothur
crop thut will be wortli gathering. Well
up lu the San Joaquiu valley I saw a fluid
which fifty pounds to tne acre was sown
last year; the crop of 1808 was a little short
of thirty eight bushels to tbe acre; the
"volunteer crop" of this year is about twen-ty-onu
bushels; and the old farmer told
thut he "reckoned" he conld get twelve
fitteeu bushels next yeur if lie should

"Tbe schooner Henry W. Brown, ' of

of the professor. It was no sooner beard
than a large outside pocket of one of them
