VOLCANIC FERTILISERS. That there is a silver lining to every OIN4 &r< Stoklasa, professor at the Technical Higfc School at Prague, again prove* in the results si his tests in connection with the eruption si Mount Vesuvius. In fact, according to his aah eulationa, the crater threw out upward of flftf milliard kilos of volcanic mud, sand, lava, sshsit be., upon the surrounding ground. These, he estimates, contain an average of at least 0*1 pet sent, nitrogen i'' the form of ammonia. The lDOantain has eonsequently prcjuced about fifty vaelion. kilos of fertiliser, representing mors ammonia and nitrous acid th.,n is used in tht whole of England. He has found beside. mous deposits of potassium phosphate and othsi fertilisers readily assimilated by the vegetabltf kingdom. The Vapours constantly rising freq the mouth of yesuvius already contain mask plant food, in faot the surroundings of voloanosl are always highly fertile, and have no iMied whatever of artificial fertilisers. Dr. Stoklasa has shewn that ammonia is always rising frsM the crater as white smoke.
