Clover is best sown with some other
crop, because it rarely yields much the
first year, aud in the early stage of its
growih it is assisted by the protection of
other grain, which should be removed as
rarjy a. may be, for "the sooner." fcays
Thaer, "the crop with which clover is

A gond deal of clover seed has been
sown which has failed to produce the in
tended crop, and various causes operate
to hinder its vegetation or to destroy the
young plants, One cause of non-veget-aiion
i ihe deep covering, or no covering
given the seed. Sown on spring grain,
aid harrowed in with a heavy harrow,
much is phcrd too d-'ep to be able to
grow. Or, if sown on the fresh soil, af
ler ihe grain is covered, without any af
ter treatment, unle.-sa heavy ram comes
soou ,io wa.-h il into the toil, the failure
is equally sure. On winter gram, it is
sometimes lot bfcau.-e town too late. If
own in March, or as soon as th hvl Is
are bare, the freezing and thawing of
the soil wiM furnish a proper covering fur
clorf-r; on priug cranio I would ratiier
ne the roller arier sowing or pass over
it with a lighi brush harrow.
Another cause of failure, one from
which we have suffered more than any
othr, is the drought ofien occurring in
early smumer, before the younger clover
pets sufficient growth to withstaud its ef
fects, and it is burned or dried up. Rem

Gypsum, plastt-r. usually proves" su;b
