You may say, if you want to,
that the past several days have
not produced growing weather,
but regard for the truth would
dictate another course in landing
your opinion. Some one reported
that the tops ot the plants grew so
fast that they palled themselves
apart in the middle, and that the
bottom leaves on some of the plants
had gotten above the top ones,
and that a few of the plants had
actually pulled themselves up by
the roots, while others trimmed
off their branches while passing
other weeds that were in a hurry.

Well, it just looks like the
world is hill of news items, but
when you start out to capture
them they seem in some way to
elude you. Yon just simply get
flimflammed, that’s all there is
about it. You begin to wonder
how it all happened, but your
philosophy is about as short as
your observation and originality,
and all you can do is to acknowl
edge your defeat and’ fall back on
your exchanges, and clip out some
thing better than you could write

Paper From Saw Mill Waste.
The wood-waste about the south
Mississippi saw mills is to be
utilized in the manufacture of pa*
per. This waste, in the form of
slabs, tree limbs, etc., amounts,
so it is said, to millions of dollars
annually, and eastern capital has
been attracted to it, It is stated
that a tirst-class quality of paper,
suitable for printing purposes, can
be made from ordinary yellow
pine, and cheaper even than from
the spruce pine of. the north. The
yellow pine fibre is longer , and
stronger than the spruce, and the
bleaching process to which it has
been necessary to subject the yel
low, heretofore expensive, has
been cheapened. A news item
from Jackson in a number of the
state papers says that a Virginia
corporation now “has agent at
work, in the southern section of
the state securing options on wast
age at the principal lumber plants,
and it is understood that the com
pany is also in the market for a
large tract of lumber lands. In
view of the rapid consumption of
the spruce forests of the north in
the manufacture of paper, and the
general demand of publishers for
the removal of the tariff on wood
pulp and paper, the plan to utilize
the yellow pine forests of the
south is of exceptional interest.”
