Will you kindly ntyow nie to diivct the attention of your readers to a ivpcd which has only invently made its uppeurance in Alberta. It is the Perennial Sow Thistle, u plant which is causing a givnt deal of trouble in Southern Manitoba, Kver> boily knows what stink weed is and how-it has driven fanners olT their holdings In parts of Manitoba, but. men who were wel,t used to the stink weed and now have tIk* sow thistle are said to lie longing for the days when they had nothing worse than the stink weed. A Well grown plant produces a great number of Mowers and they in turn a gi-eat number of se-ds so that the possibility of one plant propoguliug itself are multiplied enormously The llowering is vellovv, very Ijike that of the d mdeMons. and like it alsit each seed is attached to !n pappoiis or parachute, by me ins of ; which it is esily rut-ruid by the wind ! and seittered all over the country The roots are |iei-cnniul and run al-i Hi! in thtf earth sending out shoots every few inches, so that this is nil-oth.r source of rapid propogut ion. , ! The plant i.s easily known, and it has i fortunitel.v , n few outstanding fea- ; i lures by which it may l>e ivudily sst success' ful farmers in the neighborhood: They have improved methods and are taking advantage of every opportun-il.v to learn more about the,.- chosen occupation, and ii'-e making it a business as much as the successful manufacturer is doine along his line.
