The data that will be given in the following paper have been collected from various experiments carried on by the writer during the school year of 1906-1907. They go to show the progress of the various tests, the results of which should be expected under similar methods and conditions, rather than a report of stated facts. Object In view: (1) to test the germinating power of various seeds, to determine whether large or small seeds produce the better plants for transplanting, whether the best seeds have a definite location in the plant; (2) to determine just what plants or seedlings seem to thrive better when more or less wilted prior to transplanting; (3) to determine what happens when plants are wilted, particularly those benefited by this process in transplanting.
