It was then discovered that the cause
for the pickerel's peculiar actions was
a four-pound sucker which had be
come lodged in its throatthe head
of the sucker being in the pickerel's

Robert Clark, Princeton's scientific
gardener, can produce more vege
tables from a small acreage than any
man we know of, and, furthermore,
the products are all of high grade.
Mr. Clark's exhibits at the county
fair were par excellencehis celery,
onions, peppers, parsnips, eggplants,
a'nd cabbages being among the best
specimens entered for the contest.
His celery is perhaps worthy of
more note than any other vegetable
exhibit by him. It is crisp, perfectly
bleached and of a particularly fine
flavor. Then again it goes to demon
strate that celery of a fine quality can
be brought to perfection, as well as
almost every vegetable known, on the
semi-sandy soil of this part of the
country. Persons interested in vege
table culture can learn many a lesson
from Robert Clark,. and be will give
them readily and gratuitously.
