Abstract

The applicability of the Atochia, or, as it is called in Spain, " Esparto" to the manufacture of paper. This grass is the produce of waste lands : it requires no expense in cultivation, and little in collecting. It is best propagated from the roots, and not from seed. It is perennial, and propagates of itself, and improves by a regular yearly gathering if plucked with sufficient care.
