has drawn the following conclusions
Corn needs little nitrogen besides what
it can draw from natural scurces, wine
its yield is largely increased under the
influence of mineral fertilizors-the most
ellective being those in which the obiet
component is pliosphorio acid or potash
according to the soil and the season.
Potatoes respond uniformly to all the
ingredients, and they are less able than
corn to gather from natural sources.
The same appears to be true for turnips.
Not enough experiments ha io been
made with other crops to justily ool
isions concerning them. Practically, the
largest average yield for all crops-is si.
cured by the use of fez tilizers con taining
all the essential elements of plant food.
Used alone, nitrate of soda is rorely
useful, sulphate of lime frequently, mu
riate of potash very oito, and the su
per-phosphates generally, boils vary
in their capacity for conveying food to
crops, and careful observation and ex
perimont are necessary to determine
the needs of a particular soil.

follows: "Last season, in cutting tiree.
1 discovered the fact that the millers,
that cause so much trouble to tobacoo
ground, seclude themselves during'the

tobacco field, and, upon examining oth

four under one piece. As this experi
