A note in the American Agriculturist, probably from the pen of Prof. Thurber, than whom there can be no better authority, calls attention to the fact that there are three kinds of Allantus - the male, which is foetid for the few days it is in flower, the female, which is inodorous, and the hermaphrodite, which, though perfecting seeds as the female does, has also disagreeable flowers. The purely female is the form which those should raise from root cuttings who find fault with the odor of the others.
