A visitor- writes :—": — " Trea Lucerne, or Tagosaste, is it useful as a fodder ? Becidedly it h. In the first instance, it is of a very rapid growth and the yield of fodder is enormous ; it forms a splendid shelter ; the seed, which is like a small bean, is useful for feeding poultry. In West Australia, where they are subject to periodical drought, it has been demonstrated that it is one of the bftst fodder plants yet introduced into the colony, and is regarded pre-eminently above all others as a drought resisting plant. A great many farmtw seam to be ignorant of this highly nutritious sustenance for stock. It is indispensable to farmers. If farmers went in more extensively for lucerne growing they would have some remuneration, something to fall back upon. I wont to see the lucerne growing on Mr Thomas Rowe's farm at Bell Block ; it is a very handsome tree, covered with white bloom, which has the appearance of snoiv. It is exuberant in growth, and the flowers have a sweet, aromatic, spicy smell. It measured in circumference 75 feet and in height 25 feet, which, I ascertained from Mr Rowe to be only 2^ years' growth.
