Clover roots.

--At a meeting of the board at Watertown, President Geddes had some clover roots furnished him by a farmer in Olondaga county, one of which measured three feet eight inches, and the roots entered the ground as tap roots. The longest one was evidently broken off in taking up, and probably was six or eight inches longer, making it more than four feet; the others as long.--Such appendages as these to the clover plant, in friable soil, may well account for the great value of this plant as a fertilizer.--New York Jour State Ag Society.
