in answer to corresponaents wno asK whether cowpeas cannot be sown on stubble land after harvest, a writer in Farm and Fireside says: I wish to discourage such an experiment. In a moist snmmer I have got fair growth n this way, bnt the nitrogen was largely lost by action of frost. In an ordinary season there is insufficie:.o growth to justify the outlay. It is my experience that this plant will not thrive vcheu sown in corn at the last working, although in the hot south this is a common method. It is valuable for thin orweedy strips of land that need an extra catch erop for fertilizing purposes, but must have the full heat of summer for its development. It makes a good growth on land that fails to make a profitable gtand of clover!'
