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.
