Side 268 - Wheat, it is well known, is specially benefited by the application of nitrogenous manures, and as clover carries off so large a quantity of nitrogen, it is natural to expect the yield of wheat after clover to fall short of what the land might be presumed to produce without manure before a crop of clover was taken from it. Experience, however, has proved the fallacy of this presumption, for the result is exactly the opposite, inasmuch as a better and heavier crop of wheat is produced than without...

If this can be shown to be the case, an intelligible explanation of the fact that clover is so useful as a preparatory crop for wheat will be found in the circumstance that during the growth...
Side 475 - ... constable may receive and retain for his own use, such fees as are now or may hereafter be allowed by law for all services rendered by him in civil cases; and shall also be allowed all necessary expenses actually incurred in arresting and conveying prisoners to court or prison, which expenses shall be audited by the board of supervisors and paid out of the county treasury...
