In a true swamp soil such as this Bulletin treats of, the peaty mat: ter is frequently found throughout the Province from one to several feet deep, and in various stages of decomposition. Some of the samples of soil sent to this laboratory for analysis showed that decay had proceeded far enough to give it a good physical condition. While others consisted almost wholly of partially decayed wood and plants of such a nature that when drained it dried out too much. And. Because of the coarseness of its texture, could not lift water by capillarity from the abundant supply lying immediately below.
