A correspondent referring to the item under this head in our last, that a great proportion of weeds have been able to gain a footing and spread rapidly because they are distasteiul to cattle, calls attention to the fact that the Japan clover, Lespedeza striata, has spread in the most remarkable manner through the Southern States, and is eaten with keen relish by cattle. Still it is, as said before, the "great proportion "take advantage of their distastefulness; the clover produces seeds quite close to the ground, and in its case the eating quite close still gives some chance for reproduction.
