Connersville Times (Newspaper) - January 5, 1910, Connersville, Indiana
A quot. Its j a a the chinese Call it the tree of offensive odor. A few Are found in this City Are of rapid growth and of Good appearance but Are Short lived. Turkeys $3.63 per Twenty Birds brought their of Raer $72.63. The name Ailanthus is derived from the East Indian word Atlanto which Means tree of heaven. This tree is a native of China and the East India islands. It was introduced into England in 1751, by Jesuit missionaries and from England it was brought to this country by the Early settlers. Just Why the chinese Call this the tree of heaven is not known unless it is meant that it quot smells to for the odor of the Staminate blossoms in june is so far reaching overpowering and sickening that the tree is very generally condemned and All of its merits fail to atone for this one Demerit. The jesuits introduced the tree into England because they thought its leaves could be used As the food of a certain kind of silkworm. The Experiment failed but the Trees proved to be so stately Graceful and ornamental that they were soon valued for their own Sake. They were planted extensively in Parks and pleasure grounds. In this country they were first planted in Philadelphia. At first they were very popular but this popularity soon waned because of the offensive odor of the blossoms and the Trees were generally Cut Down. Since that time however the tree has been slowly coming Back into favor and it is now possible to buy Pistillate Trees which do not have the offensive odor. The Pistillate tree bears Large Bunches of seed which resemble somewhat those of the Maple. The Ailanthus really has Many merits along with its demerits. It retains its foliage Bright fresh and Green throughout the late summer when so Many Trees become ragged and unsightly. This especially recommends it As a City tree. Then too it grows rapidly. Postmaster Moffett has two of them which Are about ten inches in diameter and thirty feet High. They were planted twelve years ago. There Are also four of them at the Corner of sixteenth Street Street and Virginia Avenue. Mrs. Lester brought the seed of All these Trees from Indianapolis twelve years ago. The Trees have been trimmed Back considerably or they would be much taller than they Are. Young Ailanthus Trees have been known to grow from four to six feet in a summer. They Send Forth suckers freely and this is also another objection to them. They grow Well in Joil so Barren that other Trees would die. So far no insects have attacked them in this country and if there Are any which attack them in China they have not yet migrated to this country. The Ailanthus tree has very Large compound leaves which somewhat resemble those of the Walnut Only they Are larger. Like the Kentucky Coffee tree and like All Trees which have Large compound leaves its branches look Clumsy in Winter. All of its braches Bend upward not one turns toward the Earth. The Beauty of the unfolding leaves is one of the sights of Spring time. The Tufts of Young leaves with their Bronze greens and madder Browns and Pale Green tips glow in a bra giant atmosphere like the wings a Golden pheasant. Bring 1le into the House put it into a proper vase set i in the sunlight and you have a bouquet with a color scheme rarely equalled. The Ailanthus is Short lived the trunk soon becomes hollow and a tree two and a half or three feet in diameter having every appearance of health and vigor will go Down be Foer a Strong wind Only to disclose theft it that it was simply a Shell. For this reason and others mentioned above i would hesitate to Lyscom men it for planting in our streets. Chas. S. Coons. Turkeys Are no longer turkeys they re Money says the Richmond item. Such is the conclusion arrived at when it is known that just Twenty of the big american Birds brought a return of ?72.63 to the lady who raised them.

Discussing the recent report of Secretary Wilson the st. Paul Pioneer press argues that there is no investment that can be made today that has a More promising future than one in american land whether it be in the shape of a farm or a City lot or a plot of ground in a suburb or in a Village. It says the comparatively Small remnant of land not already absorbed in private ownership is being rapidly taken up. It is so far away from nine tenths of the population that More Are turning their eyes toward holdings More accessible and to of Tain a share in which they need not necessarily operate themselves from communities and conveniences to which they have become attached. The gospel of rate ownership of a few acres As the surest guaranty of Independence and of safety against want. Is daily finding wider acceptance. So buyers multiply while there can be no increase in the Supply of land. The result must inevitably be a steady Advance in values.
