TWO OF VERY WORST WEEDS
Horse Nettle and Buffalo Burr, Former

Cause Much Damage.
Many samples of horse nettle and
buffalo burr have corns to our office
this saauscr. These two striking
weeds are closely related, both being
degenerate cousins of tbe potato. Both

or tomato flowers, and both are spiny.

FIRST SALT WATER BASS
Hank was from tbe upper middle
section of the state, where the streams
are small anti run one way all the
time. Until the day of this adventure
he had never seen a bigger body of
water than a millpond, nor had he
ever caught a tish that was as large
as his hand.
Scale fish, in Hank's native section
were about as rare as gold cfifnS on a
church contribution plate. The stand?
ard fish was s little "Anger" &t. black
snd despicable in the purview of the
coast fisherman; but Hank and his
friends back home thought catching
them was rare sport, and that they
were really "game" fish.
Hank was a fisherman at heart.
When he came to the city to "take a
position" In one ot the stores he con?
tinually bragged about how he used to
"yank 'em out." and what fine ones
they were. The boys stood Hank's
palaver for a time, until tbey got tired
of it, and then they resolved to show
him what real "fishing" was like. That
ls how it came about that a party was
made up to go for chsnnel bass off
BlooJy Point, with Hank as the guest
Conditions apparently favorable for
bass. Wind, weather and tide were
precisely right, and the halt was fine
and fresh enough to tempt tbe appe?
tite of a fisherman, much lesB a fish.
Hut there was noting doing in the line
of scale fish. Channel catfish and
gaff-topsails and stlngarees there
were in plenty, but never the sign
of a scale. In half an hour the bot?
tom of the boat was covered with cats
snd Btlngarees. Usually these de?
spised "critters" are killed and
thrown overboard as soon as caught,
but Hank, as the guest of honor, and
knowing only catfish, was proud of tbe
big gaff-topsails and wsnted to count
As the other fellows were proposing
to pull up the killick snd go home.
Robbins got a strike, snd lt was s
heavy one. Now, Robblua ls a hand
line man. and does not believe In play?
ing his fish. He wants to see the
quarry landed in the shortest possible
space of time. "What's the use
foolin'," says Robbins; "you come
after the flab; why not get 'em and
When Robbins got the strike, there?
fore, the line came In hand over hand,
and in a jiffy a great floundering
shgpe of silver and drab, long as a
man's body, and half his legs, was
pounding on tbe gunwale and beating
the green water into a heavy show?
er that fell over the whole boat's
Hank was electrified. With a cry
like a wild Indian, he sprang from his
Beat upon the thwart, grabbed the big
tish around the throat, lifted lt In?
board and went down with it among
ithe catfish and stlngarees.
The balance of tbe company looked
on In literal fa>ar and trembling. There
were no less than forty of the Bea
devils of the poisonous spines in the
bottom of the boat, and there was thst
blithering idiot from the millponds
writhing and* wrestling and twisting
with a forty-pound sea bass right in
the midst of them! It seemed inevlta.
ble that Hank must be "finned," but
the more the men shouted to him the
wilder Hank raved in his delirium ol
the kill. "He's plumb crazy," salli
Little Finky, the skipper.
As quickly as he could manage ll
without sticking Hank with tbe knife
Robbins cut the fish's throat. In tw<
minutes more lt was still.
Then Hank got up. He was ai
white as a ghost. There was not thi
color of blood in bia Ups. His cheeki
were like chalk, his eyes were glass;
and his knees were shaking. Tottei
lng astern, he collapsed, with hsai
and arms over the gunway.
"I knowed lt," said Little Flnky
"he's got lt good and hard. In a doze:
places; the blamed eejlt! Serves hir
right. What'Je bring a millponner o
salt water fer, anyhow?"
"Aw, cut that," growled Robblni
"Can't you Bee the man's In grea
suffering? Get tbe peroxide while w
and the other boys strip his clothe
off and find the punctures."
No sooner aald tban dona. Tb
strippers bsd got almost down to nt
ture when Hank revived enough I
say In a weak voice:
"Leave me alone, you dang fools,
ain't blt nor stung nor nothln'; Jut
swallowed my chaw of tobacco."
And that was the size of lt. Tl
Providence that protects little cb
dren and imbeciles and drunken ma
had steered that "millponner" safe
and unscathed through what appeara
to be a hopeless array of catfish ai
stingaree spines while he wreath
with the big bass.

FORCED TO FIGHT FOR LIFE
Tree Really Has Unequal Show for
Development of Beauty In
The seclusion and beauty ot eastern
academic cltlea. duplicated In some of
the middle west towns, have become
historical lu great paul by reason ot
tbe magnificent elms which border ths
avenues and fill the yards and uni?
versity grounds. These noble trees
*ere planted when wood was burned,
and they were well grown before coal
smoke and gas made city conditions
so difficult for flourishing tree life.
Young trees nowadays must fight so
many adverse conditions In cities that
lt seems unlikely they will ever reach
the tine proportions of their stately
ancestors. City life does not material?
ly affect old trees, but stunts the
growth of the young ones and de
privett them of much of their grace
That the fight against city life ls a
keen one ls shown by the fact that
elms In a city will shed their leaves
fully a month In advance of their
rural relatives, and that often tbe
leaves turn brown and drop oft with
no color change, while those In the
country will sometimes turn such bril?
liant shades of yellow that pilgrimages
are made to the fields or clay knolls
where their beauty ls revealed tn
natural and unhampered perfection.
The gypsy and brown tailed moth
have made serious inroads upon the
health and beauty of tbe eastern elms,
but up to the present time they are
unknown In ths middle west. West?
ern horticulturists, knowing that they
cannot hope wholly to escape tbe visit
of these pests, are putting forth earn?
est efforts to discover some method
of extermination. The European elm,
though bardy, ls stiff, lacking the
graceful arching character of tbe
American elm. Tbe hackberry, a fine
large tree, so like the elm that lt ls
often mistaken for lt, ls subject to at?
tacks of a fungus tbat causes an un?
sightly growth of twigs.
TREES GAVE STREET VALUE
Cass In Point as to Their Financial
Worth In Cities, If Any
A visitor lu tbe southern states
made this observation: "Passing
through a street in one of tbe large
cities of tbe south on which blocks
of tlrst class houses bad been erected
on both sides, but evidently by dif?
ferent owners, there appeared to ba
a wonderful difference in success
caused by sbade trees alone. There
waa a pretty row of Carolina poplars
on one side and on tbe other side no
trees at all. This side bad numerous
notices of houses to rent, hut on tbe
other side of tbe trees, In tbe shade,
every bouse was occupied. The bouses
on both sides of the strees appeared
to be of equal age and value and there
was no apparent difference between
the two. There ls not a particle of
doubt that tbe presence of tbs trees
had given the ons side ths greater ad?
Money for Civic Improvement.
Berlin and Parla were made beauti?
ful by tearing out slums and building
boulevards and parks on tbe vacated
grour.ds. That these Improvements
did not increase the taxes was because
the government condemned large
tracts of ground, rased the buildings,
improved the property on them, and
then sold a part of the ground at a
price Justified by the improvements.
The people, rather than land specula^
tors, got the benefit of the Increase la
price from betterments and public use.
Tbe legal right to proceed In this
way ls called the law of excess con?
demnation. In this country some com?
munities have tried to proceed In this
way, but the state supreme courts
have found the atate laws provided
for lt to be unconstitutional.
Crawford, at ths 1911 conference on
city planning, said:
"A decision by a state court uphold?
ing excess condemnation within rea?
sonable limits would in tarn he up?
held by the supreme court of tba

If we are to Interest the child In
