DEVELOPMENT OF THE PLANT.

ROOT WASHING.

Having thus described the physical and meteorological conditions under which the crop was grown, it remains to note the development of the plants under the condition stated.

Five Peerless cotton seed were dropped by hand May 15th in checks two by three feet apart, and a fairly good stand of one plant secured without replanting. The land could not be prepared sooner, and, as no manure was used, fully two-thirds of the bolls did not open, so it is impossible to even estimate the amount of crop per acre. It may be said, however, that the season, though late and too wet in the spring, was on the whole very favorable for our soil. Six of the average-sized plants were cut down when matured and were found to contain an average of 74 leaves, 14.7 bolls and 8 squares, which should have given a very fair yield.

Frequent examinations were made on the growth and development of the roots of these plants by the usual method of rootwashing, using a small jet of water to wash away the soil in the holes left after taking the soil-sample for moisture determinations. The roots were exposed, measured and photographed in nearly their natural position. At first, until arrangements were made for a permanent water supply, the root-washings were made with an ordinary wash-bottle. The labor of washing away the hard clay subsoil in this way was so great that, as regards the whole root system, the record for that period is incomplete, as our efforts were mainly directed towards the development of the tap-root. The following data was collected: Three weeks after the crop was planted, the development of the plant above ground (they were not then all up) having extended only to the first two seed leaves, the tap-roots of the two plants examined had penetrated to a depth of six inches, Fig. 1. One week
