Yolo county The result of various experi ments heretofore published In these columns shows that both con be made a crop Tho only plausible explanation la that there IB less risk and more profit In other crops V J who lives four miles above brought In to our office Tuesday some samples of cotton and tobacco raised on hie place with out Irrigation He planted the seed last April and only n small quantity Just for an experiment The results far exceeded his expectations and would probably have been better bad the seed boon planted earlier Tho capsules have opened and the cotton appears to be of excellent qual ity Mr Chamberlin has sixteen of the cotton plants they were all well plowed N He also has sixteen tobacco Tho leaves are not so broad as those we have seen In other states but we believe that Is due to tho fact that the tobacco was cut too soon The fiber appears to bo good and tho color all right and wo no reason why If thla tobacco Is properly bandied It should not cure to
