Clover is one of the plants of this pulse family that has long been known to improve land in this way but it In only in receut years that it has come to bo understood how valuable the iliirerent sorts of cow Has mny bo to the southern farmer, for the samu ptirMse. The cow h bs are a warm country crop and should not lie plant ed until all danger of frost is over. They may lie sown broadcast at the rate of one and n fourth to one ami a half bushel to tin- acre, cultivating iu lightly with a hhoel plow or they be may sown iu drills about two feet apart and then can be cultivated lietwcen the rows once or twice before thev get too high.

Cow peas uiso make excellent hay if cut when only tho flint pod are riiioniug and stacked iu narrow stacks around poles. Tho Clay and Black-ova make a rauk growth of vines ami are quite late. The Whip loor-will, a brown speckled variety, is earlier and a great producer of pods; the Black is still earlier and grows inoto like hush beans, uot failing over. Thoso last two may be sown broadcast among tho com just before plowing to "lay by" and will make'a line growth that is clear gain.
