The strong est was one lb aisenato of soda to 'J gal. water; next lib to 1 gallons; then I to 0 gallons, j nd still another more dilute. The material was applied with a sprinkling ean. and the first two killed the weeds utterly, while the weaker solutions did not do so, though thoy cheeked growth materially. Tt is stated thut if the affected path e»n bo rakod prior to spraying, so much the hotter, as this operation exposes tho roots.
