The Iowa Homestead draws these conclusions from an experience with new so-wn clover in a dronght year: 1. That in spring sowing on a ligbt soil and in a dry season deep covering is essential. 2. That in a dry season a stand of clover among apparently heavy oats is imperiled, provided the oats are removed in a hot, dry time. S. That in a dry season it is quite possible to ottain a stand of clover in slonghs by sowing in the early spring and cutting off the slongh grass in time togive the clover room. 4. That surf ace sowing of clover seed is useless in a very d-y season, especial ly on lignt soil. This is practically the same as the first conclusión, but is reported to im! press an important fact.
