Farmers, sow home raised oats and

soil the seeds of the Russian thistle,
the terrible scourge of tiie Northwest.
It first appeared in the Dakotas in
1891, sown in tlaxseed brought from
Russia, but has extended to Minneso
ta and Iowa. The plants are ball-shap
ed, from one to six feet in diameter
and each holding 20,000 to 2C0,000
seeds. P'armers in the infested locali
ties have had to abandon -their lands
and are emigrating to other States.
The damage wrought by the weed du

It seems that the list of the county
board of commissioners which we pub- \
lisped last week will have to be revis- .1
ed"as some of those named are not
freeholders and the law requires that
th. y shall be freeholders. The list, as
published is po good a one that ure
would advise 4* the boys" tn bust le
?round and yet a little land, if it ls on
ly half an acre. We know that land is
a very poor something to own these

not for your own, get you an inch or an
