You may burn the soil of your garden by getting any brushwood you can conveniently, and putting it together like a cone, with a vent at the top; then set fire to it, and pile your soil all round it. In this way you may burn a good deal of it, and especially the stiffest of the clay. With regard to your right to exhibit as an amateur, while at the same time you sell a portion of the plants and fruit you grow, we think you stand in the same position in that respect as gardeners do whose employers sell a portion of the produce of their gardens. They are not thereby disqualified from exhibiting as gardeners, and classed with market-gardeners or nurserymen; neither should you be, if you do not advertise or issue printed circulars.
