BotTOE Ckitr -The weed that has been attracting m
much attention, and sometimes called "prickly weed,"
"Mexican sand-bur," etc, is known as SoJaawm Btra
fuia. It belongs to the natural order fotaaoeea, or night,
shadafamlly, and botanlcally is related to the tomato and
potato. The plant ban annual, with prickly stems and
leaves, the latter shaped somewhat tike the leaves of a
watermelon vine. The flower are yellow, the seeds en
closed in a bur-like pod ; a single plant prodadnc as ma
ny as 30,000 aeena, and sotnetimea more. The seed, ripen
In the latter part of Summer, and will remain in the
ground alt Winter, and germinate and grow the next
Spring and Summer. The plant la from the regions of
the Rocky Mountains, and in various way. ha. been
scattered and introduced over a large extent of coun
try. The Colorado potato bug or beetle, ln Its native
places, originally fed almost exclusively on It. The in
sect', preference for it Is qnite noticeable, wherever the
two are found in the aame places. It is a fast spreading,
disagreeable weed, making places infested with it look as
If the right master was away from home. But It is not
difficult to destroy, as the roots die every year, and the
young plants come np from the seed. These young seed
lings are easily destroyed by cutting off or plowing un
der ; but a. long as the seeds are allowed to ripen before
the plant is destroyed, we may expect a bountiful crop.
There Is another weed closely related to this ono nam
ed, known as Solanum CaroIinuc often called horse
nettle and bull nettle. This has prickly stems and leaves,
and pale bine or white flowers, and somewhat resembles
a potato phut ; the roots are perennial living in the
ground through Winter, and sprouting up when the
roots become broken or disturbed j consequently, cultiva
tion of the aoD doe. not kill them oat so readily indeed,
plowing the ground at certain seasons tends to increase
them, as the broken root, sprout quite freely.
Xoxlou. weeds like the one. named, and destructive In
sects, such as grasshopper, and chinch-bugs, have become
a serious drawback to the agricultural and other interest,
of our State, and people are very wisely turning their at
tention toward, some general and practical method of re
lief from the many obstacle, and heavy burdens that are
crushing out the life of industry throughout the country.
Our difficulties require deliberate and careful consider
ation, .ndwhen the right way to oreraam them 1 leant
ed, it will only require rigid adherence to the work; and
a united effort will lead to find success.
Those who are directly Interested in all these things,
are the one. who will have" to take hold, work out the
remedies, and apply them. It ia a poor plan to wait for
some accident to turn op to give relief, and the fuolishest
of follies to expect aid or a remedy from sources whose
interests are in a different channcL E. SXYDEC

KiuTOBCuiEr: In your account of the drowning of
Monroe's son, last week, vou do some parties injustice.
You say two men sat on the bank, without offering assist
ance. I understand 1 am one of the mon referred to. 1
pronounce it false. Xow, for the facts : Mr. Smellier,
Spencer and myself were walking down the railroad track;
wo saw Ellsworth Monroe, Griffith's and Yanderalice'
sons. In swimming. We watched them tlU they came out.
Another lot of boya came from town, and went In, Monroe
with them. We told him not to go, it would make him
sick. He said he would risk it and in he went. A. soon
as he came to deep water, he sank. WUL Tracy swam to
him ; he pulled him under. Tracy got loose, and came
out Joe Hartley went to him; he got him around the
neck, and both ent down. I atked Smeltzer to go in.
He said ho could not swim. I pullod off my clothes, did
not stop to unbutton my wristliands, but tore off my
sleeves, and waded In to thou up to my neck ; saw a leg ,
got bold of It saw It was Joe Hartley, and took him out.
Smeltzer brought a pole ; I took It, waded back u far as I
could, poked around with the pole, but saw nothing more
of tho boy. Spencer was in with me all the time. We
turned to eome out; saw Joe Hartley wading back; he
got where the water was about three feet deep, feU down
and sank would have drowned, had 1 not pnUed hbn out
the secoud time. About that time, Crite. and others came
there. Crite pitched in, swam aU over, and hunted over
half an hour, before the body was found. A colored man
by the name of Gaiter found him. We worked until the
Doctor came, to bring bim to. Xow, sir, I ran prove eve
ry word of this. I bat e a clear conscience. I did my du
ty, but notbing mure.
It is easy for others to say what they would hare done,
when they were not there; bnt If Crites, a good swimmer,
could cot find the boy in half an hour, there is some ex
cuseforme, wbenlcan'tawhnatalL It has been told
on the streets tltat the pond is only about twelve feet
across, and four feet deep. That comes about as near the
truth as tho other reports. The pond Is twelve rods
across, and from four to seven feet deep.
But I will not trouble yon more.

EiirroB Chief: Please find by this man the Biston
Journal with an article from the pen of John S. Sleeper,
on the Island of Tristan De Acunha. On reading the nu
merous congratulations ofyour orother typos on the mer
ging of the lltpuUiean and Chitf into one paper, the
words "absorption" and "swallowing" occur quite often;
and I am reminded of one of Sleeper', yarns, published
some years since, under tho cognomen of "Hawser Martin
gale." The 'gist of It was The ship in which he sailed
was then at tho Island of Madagascar, and part of the
crew went on shore, on liberty. Daring their ramble on
shore, one of the number shot a monkey, which, by the
natives, was esteemed a sacred animal; and consequent.
ly he was arrested, tried, and cordenined to be turned
over to the tender mercies of a Boa Constrictor, which
was kept In a large cage. A day was set apart, and a
large crowd assembled from aU quarters, to see the poor
sailor swallowed. Xow, this man', protection paper de
scribed him as being some six or more feet high, light
complexion, light hair, blue eyes, and born in the State of
Maine; whereas this chap was not much over Are feet
high, black hair and dark complexion, and stout build, a
great eater, and with the digestive power of n ostrich,
and prbably a Welchmaa by birth. The day came at but;
the poor fellow was turned in ; cloud, of dust arose, and
all awaited in breathless suspense the flanal denoument ;
when at Ust the air became clear, audit was found, in
stead or Jack being awoUowed, he had .wallowed the An
