A Real Gas Plant.
There are two varieties of gas plant One is a manufacturing establishment where coal is converted into gas for il luminating and heating purposes. The other variety is a real growing plant called the fraxinella. Few know why the fraxinella is called the “gas plant.” This is because at certain times it re leases a volatile oil that actually ig nites if allowed to come in contact with a lighted match. The fraxinella is also noted for its fragrance and longevity if not disturbed. One plant in a New England garden is doing its best to outlive a third generation, and elsewhere a clump is still flourish ing after no less than thirty-seven years on a grave—one of the most dif ficult of places for a perennial to keep up a long struggle for existence, let alone a normal life.—New York World.
