Weeds ice plitiabO. of theitr ptoper
place, and we may add, as a matter of
experience, ,awayfrom home," because
the most troublesome weeds with which gr
our farmers and gardeners have to con- tahi
tend are not indigenous to North Amer- thr
ica, but have been introduced from other t'"'
countries. This fact alone shows how -
.wide of the mark is the often-repeated this
assertion that plants do best in their tlou
native country, and when removed blai
therefrom are likely todegenerate or run pou
out. It is doubtless true that there is a gla'
principle of adaptation of plants to cli. ma<
mate and soil, which underlies all sue- clo
cessful agriculture and horticulture; but -
this is seldom discovered except through trai
experience, theories often leading the stul
cultivator astray in such matters. whi
Plants may succeed in their native By
habitats, and still do far better in a for- less
eign country. In the case of plants termed to f
vfe sthqyb Y seenT to ,thhfirei eptp when ing
away from home, as the culfidators of
the soil in this country have learned to bus
their cost. Our native plants seldom out
invade the grain fields or gardens, but der
it is the introduced plants which become of
great pests. For instance, the so-called pe

serves in "Flora Lapponica," "it is the ke
greatest pest of our fields," a rem trk
which is equally applicable to it in this
country at the present day.. In Europe thr
it is called the cursed. thistle, a name, twh
which has been corrupted by the farm
ers of the United States intp Canada pc1
thistle, although there is no prooteven tr
of its havig reached our fields by the
way of (Onada. The common long
leaved'thiele of our fields and roadsides,
as well as the yellow thistle and dotton
thistle, are all introduced weeds. and we bri
do not know of a native species that has
ever proved to be the least troublesome an
in qgItivated fields or gardens.
The great ox-eye daisy, which of late
years has spread over the Middle and tal
Northern States, much to the injury of otl
the hay crop, is a native of the Old iCe
o , and prably first introduced mT
Krasbttd I grain. It has now it
become a great pest, and is so widely Jun
distributed that it will probably remain it
with us to the end of time, as it seems an
to take very kindly to all kinds of soils, int
ias well as to our variable climate. It is 'p

cities and villages are sure to restock en
their fields with the pest, no matter how ga
careful they may be in destroying the co
plants as they appear from year to year. wi
Of all the weed pests infesting the sti
fields and gardens of the Northern be
B States, not five in a hundred are native, na

which so many farmers believe is a kind

European countries. Going further to
e south, we find different kinds of weeds, is
have ,y mo! 4hr
but here agam we findtiat the most frou
blesome species have been introduced, a1
and a:'e not indigenous. The vile weed ti
