There Is certainly a risk of the spread of weeds In fields when stieep and cattle are supplied with feeding stuffs containing -weed-seeds, but the danger Is not so great as might be sup posed. 2.

' .? - Considerable difficulty is experienced at first in obtaining tubercles on the roots of soy beans, but when once these have appeared in a particular piece of ground there is no further trouble.
