Dear sir: The department of agriculture has allotted to me 900 quart packages of cotton seed for distribution among the farmers who want to make a test of a new variety of cotton, and I shall be pleased to mail a package of the seed o anyone who will request it before the supply is exhausted and not later than February 15th. The plan of the department is to furnish quart package, which will en able the farmer to make a trial of the seed, and if satisfactory, upon appli cation they will-then furnish him with a half-bushel for a practical start with the new strain for his next season's crop. To obtain this half-bushel, how ever, the farmer will have to make a report of his experiment to the de partment on a blank furnished him. Each package will be accompanied by a circular letter giving full infor mation regarding the variety and the department's plan for assisting the farmer in establishing it on his farm. I shall appreciate if you will give publication to the proposal of the de Spartment, so that the seed may bw distributed among those who wish to make a trial of it., Very truly yours, L. LAZARO.
