We were amazed to find the Editor of this magazine quoted by the Weekly Press as stating that the " Chestnut needs limestone soil," as exactly the contrary is the Editor's experience. The Chestnut rather avoids than needs limestone soil. On referring to the September number, we find that the Editor of the Press is not to blame for the imputation. The case is simply a grammatical one. The whole subject refers to the Larch, - but by an unfortunate use of the pronoun "it," one may be justified in inferring the Chestnut is alluded to. But the fact is, as properly stated by the Editor of the Press, the Chestnut rather avoids than needs limestone soils.
