It is a very delightful dish when served properly, ami it is credlteu with possessing i mark I medicinal value, being alterative ami c ii.ocil purifier, when urd freely in the winter or early spring. Next to spinach the preference should fall on mustard. The Georgia Cracker may choose <• dish of coils rd* in prefeienc** to dther, but it is not wtee to have such taste. Osloa*. In Middle Georgia It Is not safe to so*v the seed before the very last of th*? month, and as n general tHlng it is much safer to wait until the mUklle of Feb ruary..

In an article on fertilizing fruit tree* In the Houthern Planter, Mr. H. K. Vin Deman has some very valuable thoughts on the use of pntaxh "Rut potash Is the m<**t Important of all the plant foods to the frub grower A soil that Is rich In potash 1* almost hup to la* a good one for fruit. That Is largely why those of the Pacific Cou*l are *** w* ll adapted to fruit. The mountain* have been melting down for untold ages, and she soils which they have made on Fie slope* and In Ihe valley* are heavily charged with potash.

Common sense would therefore, lead us to make up the deficit In the cheapest wny possible.
