Russian Thistles Near Colton.
On Thursday, when repairing
culverts between Johnson and Col
ton, I took a by-way through the
farms ot A. M. Bibins and others,
and on coming to the summer fal
low of N. K. Hiiigins I saw a pecu
liar looking weed. On examination
the weed proved to be Russian
thistle. There is quite an amount
of it in this field, showing that it is
not the first year in that neighbor
It resembles tumble weed to some
extent, but differs in color, and the
stems have stripes running length
wise of a pinkish and red color. A
specimen has been left at the post
office in Pullman. I will also try
to have specimens on exhibition at
Johnson, Colton and Union town.
It will be well for all farmers to
see the specimens, if they are not
acquainted with it, and watch dili
gently and eradicate the pest if
possible. Now is the time before
the seed is ripe enough to scatter.
