Joseph Banks, who had heard of its exist

many kinds much alike, but there are also
magnificent varieties that we ought to
possess and grow as we do good roses.
Among the early varieties that came to
this country was one with single flowers,
which were white, with a dark crimson
stain at the base of the petals. This was
and still is supposed to be the type and
parent of the now numerous and lovely
progeny in existence. Occasionally, and
often when least expected, one meets with
a grand plant of this and a similarly
colored double flowered variety.
A short time back, when passing along
the road in a remote country district, we
saw two magnificent plants of this kind,
one on each side of the walk leading up to
a farmhouse. They were each more than
four feet in height, almost as much in di
ameter and bearing scores of blooms.
Many years must elapse before a specimen
of such dimensions is obtained, for al

Colonel Stone, of Tennessee, once told a
pretty yooU tiling of a delc-eate from one
of the rural counties to the state conven
tion whom he met there for the first time.
The colonel said:
"I am Rl.nl to meet you. I have known
your father for many years, but never had
the pleasure of your acquaintance. I see
that tbe son, however, is better looking
than tlie rather.
Look he re, colonel," said the delegate,
you need not be flattering me up, fori am
out and cut for liarksdale for governor,
although the old man is lor you."

Porter's Cnnecessary Work.
Robert P. Porter, superintendent of
the census, is writing long letters to the
Chicago papers to prove to the working-
men of Illinois that they have had their
wages raised by the McKinley tariff. It
is an urxneccessary undertaking, for
every wage earner in the state knows
whether his w-ages are higher or lower
than they were before the McKinley bill
became a law, and he also knows that if
his wages have been increased it has not
been because of an era of artificial pros
perity created Dy McKanley and his bill.
