The following compositon on geese
was written, according to Capper's
Weekly by a schoolboy in St. Louis:
"Geese is a heavy-set bird with a
head on one side and a tail on the
other. His feet are set so far back on
his running gear that they nearly
miss his body. Some geese is gan
ders and has a curl in his tall. Gan
ders don't lay or set. They just eat,
loaf and go swimming. If I had to
be a geese I would rather be a gan

eggs. But for me give me liberty or

J he Silver Palace
(By J. B. Thompson, in Florida
As a permanent pasture grass for
general planting in Florida, Bermuda
grass undoubtedly ranks first in im
portance. Being a creeDine
nial with surface runners that rpot
at the joints, and unusually being
provided with long fleshy root-stocks,
it is both aggressive and persistent
and resists the trampling of stock and
other adverse conditions incident to
close grazing. The old feeling of
prejudice against this grass, arising
from its ability to resist the usual
measures of eradication, Is gradually
disappearing at its highly valuable
qualities are becoming better known.
There are several distinct forms or
varieties of this grass, all of which
are closely related and belong to the
same species. These varieties differ
from each other in such characters
as hardiness to cold ,the predomin
ance or lack of rootstocks, and in
their relative vigor of growth. The
most common type or "ordinary Ber
muda" is of comDarativelv fin
growth, and seldom exceeds twelve
inches in height. It has many fleshy
rootstocks which increases its power
to withstand drought or cold, or the
excessive trampling of stock, Like
other forms, its rankness of crowth
varies with soil conditions, and the
general treatment of the pasture.
Usually it grows from four to eight
inches high, but under the most fav
orable conditions occasionally attains
a height of twelve to fifteen inches.
' Giant Bermuda makes more vigor
ous growth than does the ordinary
form and is practically devoid of
rootstocks. As compared with the
ordinary variety, this form is coarser
of stem, more erect in growth, and
has broader and coarser leaf blades.
On the Florida Experiment Station
grounds at Gainesville, this grass has
,made upright growth to a height of
twenty-four inches when planted on
good pine land and fenced to prevent
the entrance of farm animals. Qwng
to its freedown from roostocks the
Giant form is more easily eradicated
than is the ordinary variety; and for
the same reason it is probably a lit
tle less persistent under conditions
of extreme drought or close grazing.
On the station plots it has not formed
as dense a sod as is typical of com
mon Bermuda, but this condition ap
pears to be improved by moderate
grazing. During winter dormancy the
Bermuda grass pasture will readily
burn where there is sufficient old
growth, and as' a result the Giant
Bermuda with practically no root
stocks will be very seriously damaged,
while the common variety will with
stand the burning with little or no
injury. In handling this grass care
should be taken to prevent 1 fire.On
favorable locations, and where' given
proper treatment this variety will
furnish much more feed than will the
common form, and under the most
favorable conditions it may even be I
utilited profitably for hay.
A coarse growing variety found
along the lower Florida East Coast
and often known as Saint Lucie grass,
is a form-of Giant ermuda. It is most
common southward from Fort Pierce
and stockmen of that section general
ly express a preierence ror it . over
the ordinary variety.
Another kind, and the one long
known in literature as Saint Lucie
grass is of rather dwarf growth and
has no rootstocks. Its habits cf
growth are even less vigorous than
those of the common variety of Ber-

We believe that Napier grass is
one of the most promising of our
newly introduced forage crops, though
as is common with many new intro
ductions, many exaggeration must be
allowed for.
It is best to plant Napier grass
plants or cuttings in rows six to eight
feet apart, placing the plants or cut
tings about two feet apart in the row
during the spring months, though this
grass can be successfully planted at
almost any season of the year, pos
sibly excluding the cold winter
months. Planting during the rainy
summer season months has been suc
cessfully done. This grass should be
carefully cultivated a! intervals of
about ten days to two weeks until the
plants fully occupy the land and after
wards the stubble should be given
a thorough cultivation Immediately
after gathering each forage crop.
Napier grass is a heavy feeder and
therefore grows best on our most fer
tile soils, especially those earring the
largest amount of nitrogen, though
this forage crop can be successfully
grown on lightersoil types when fer
tilized somewhat heavily. Where
commercial fertilizers are used we
would recommend a formula carrying
a large percentage of nitrogen or its
equivalent in ammonia, say, four to
six. Though sufficient extierimfintnl
data is not yet available it appears
that Napier grass will prove to be an
excellent pasturage grass throughout
a large portion of middle and south
Florida, especially when it is pastured
