Some variations useful to him have probably arisen suddenly, or by one step; many botanists, for instance, believe that the fuller's teasel, with its hooks, which can not be rivalled by any mechanical contrivance, is only a variety of the wild Dipsacus; and this amount of change may have suddenly arisen in a seedling.

Thus he spake, and straightway they ceased from such words and gave unwearying labour to the oar; and quickly they passed by the swiftly flowing river Rhebas and the peak of Colone, and soon thereafter the black headland, and near it the mouth of the river Phyllis, where aforetime Dipsacus received in his home the son of Athamas, when with his ram he was flying from the city of Orchomenus; and Dipsacus was the son of a meadow-nymph, nor was insolence his delight, but contented by his father's stream he dwelt with his mother, pasturing his flocks by the shore.

My twisted valerian is a poor race, and hardly anything can be done with it. Perhaps, in other countries the corresponding rich race may be hidden somewhere, but I have never had the good fortune of finding it. This good fortune however, I did have with the wild teasel or Dipsacus sylvestris.

CANNABIS sativa. HEMP. This plant is cultivated in some parts of this country. It is usually sown in March, and is fit to harvest in October. It requires good land, and the seed is usually two bushels and a half per acre. The seed, which ripens about the time the hemp is pulled, is useful for feeding birds and poultry, and very nourishing. DIPSACUS Fullonum.
