Pen should be drflted In rows, one to two pints being nffldent for n 100- foot row. Tbe indJvtdnal peas should be placed about 1 inch apart la the Sow*. Tbe distance between rows will depend upon the ktad of cultivation to be employed, and npon tbe varieties Ued. The dwarf -raiietle* need not be ·ny Partner apart than necessity to Lnmnt cnitrmHon, wblle the taU-grow- la( aorta »hoaVJ not be planted closer than S to 3H feet apart. A good schema Is to plant two parallel rows of peas about 6 or 8 Inches apart, then leave a space of IS inches or two feet and plant tiro more-rows of teed dose together. Fewer strings or leas brash will be required to support tbem than -when planted In single TOWS at the-greater distance. ' If peas are to be grown for Immediate ose only, a iguort will be enough to plant at one time. However, If It is desired to grow peas for canning, large plantings shonld be made. If space is available. It Is an excellent plan to make considerable planting at one time of some one. variety, so. that tbe peas for canning wilt be available la considerable quantities. This enables the housewife to get the .carmine oat of the way in a comparatively short time. Successive plantings of the various varieties of peas should be made at Intervals of about two weeks, antn the ·weather begins to grow warm, when the plantings 'Should 'be discontinued. It ts _ possible .In some sefrtlons to grow a fall crop of peas. When this Is done, early varieties sboulfl'be used. --U. S. Department of Agricartnre.

Determining AB* of Planet* A novel ld«a in estimating the physical condition of planets 905 pot forth by SL Yercanet before the Academic des Sciences at a recent meeting In Paris. He based It upon a calculation of the quantity of water that rocfcs such, as granite and porphyry absorb before becoming perfectly dry. He said thnt -on the moon all water has been completely absorbed by slow dUtaslon as the rocks gradually cooled. Verms Is still sorronniied by a thick layer of vapor, while no -vrater hns yet been condensed on the surface of Mercury, this planet betng still In a condition In.-which its geological life has not began* and conseqneDtiy no cloud* bave yet formed oa IB surface.
