A Belvidere, N. J., correspondent says: "I desire to note a singular thing which occurred when I was out driving early in June. We were passing a field of rye; there was a gentle wind blowing. The pollen was being loosened and carried before the wind in such quantity as to exactly resemble waves of fog; indeed some parts of the field were obscured at times. This may have been often observed before, but it was new to me".

[Pollen in clouds from pine forests has been often noted. It will fall on lakes and sheets of water, till they seem coated with sulphur. No such note has been before made of the large quantity from a rye field. - Ed. G. M].
