And the earlier they realize this necessity the better for them. Many depend eutirely on their fine bottom, for the corn and fodder to feed their stock If they fail in this, which they?do an average every third year, they have their feed to buy ; when, if these lands were well set in Ber mnda or Means grass, the crop would k have been housed before the rains fell at a cost of about four doHars a ton, -which would be worth from ten to twenty dollars a ton, owing to the market.
