Professor Horner Wants Collection
of Northwest Relics.
Corvallis, Sept. 20. (Special.) A mu
seum of Pacific northwest antiquities
with su-ch information concerning them
s may be obtained will be started at
the college under the direction of
Professor J. B. Horner, head of the de
partment of history. Professor Horner
desires that a more complete record
of the prehistoric races may be acces-
ible to the public. when sufficient
nformation is obtained an archaeologi
cal chart of the state will be prepared
and to this end co-operation of all who
ave data is requested.
Professor Horner wants to know th
ocation of ancient burial mounds.

built of earth or stoe. dimensions.

kulls were found and how they con-
rast with modern skulls, what other
relics were discovered and detailed in
formation in regard to their discovery.
tpartment of Botany, University of Oregon.
Sept. 20. (Special.) Some lowly
plants are satisfied to lie prone
on the nourishing earth and obtain the
leaf expanse and exposure necessary for
the constructive process of growth by
epreading over much surface. Such is
the carpet weed, that troublesome in
terloper of our gardens. This is ef
' iective as long as room i sufficient,
but when the struggle becomes more
severe and plant crowds plant in the
struggle, our lowly friend will soon be
choked out by others which, stiffening
their bones, have lifted their stalks up
into the life-giving sunshine. Numer
ous plants having the desire and neces
sity for reaching sunlight, yet not suf
ficient rigidity of stem for their own
support, must needs have help In the
struggle, such as the plant climbers.
Here belongs the familiar morning
glory, likewise the hop, whose pole
climbing proclivities have been out
done by Its soaring market price. Could
you have watched it in the spring you
would have seen the tip of the young:
shoot circling around, in the same di
rection as the hands of a watch, and
when successful in finding a support
Kpiraling its way upward. You: who,
with ungloved hands, have stroked its
stem with too much familiarity, ma
have wondered at the harshness of you
reception, and what was the purpose o
the roughness of surface. If you coul
bring a magnifying glass to your aid
you would discover six rows of minute,
strangely shaped and sharp-pointe
spurs which are made to dig into th
support, much as the lineman uses hi
climbers, and this make the plants hold
more secure.
The wild honeysuckle, Lonicera, ha
a tantalizing way of disposing its re
trumpet flowers and berries high up
in the tops of Inaccessible tree
branches, which high position it at
tains by twining its way upward.
Nature's- Method Diverse.
Besides those plants which attai
the high vantage points of their de
sire by twining stems, nature show
her delight in diversity of method for
attaining the same end.
The stroller, in autumn's fields an
woods may have noted that interestin
clamberer, the wild clematis or vir
gin's bower, now luxuriant with abun
dant small white flowers, later
adorned with feathery balls. Not every
individual, however, will furnish those
fluffy spheres so valuable for decora
tlve purposes in these days of deart
for they are ripened seed cases, and as
the sexes are distinct, are only to be
found in the female plants. Fig. L The
clematis belongs to the buttercuo fam

arter shedding its pollen it falls away.
In this figure its method of climbing
is shown. The leaves are compound,
composed of several leaflets and the
one at the right has found a blade of
grass around which it has twisted its
leaf-stalk and so Is helped in the up

a leaf finds any support that it may
The vetch and several others of the
pea family, replace some of the ter
minal leaflets of their compound
leaves with tendrils that attach them
selves to nearby supports. Fig. S.
Hence the value of planting with the
vetch some rigid grain on which it
may climb.
Tendrils Aid Plants to Climb.

of the branches, tiny disks which take
firm hold of the smooth surface and

support (Fig. 5).
The Boston ivy (Fig. 6) employs a
similar devise.
The English ivy (Fig. 7) uses a
method different from any . of the
above. On the side of its stem away
from the light it develops numerous
fine roots which attach themselves
firmly to the substratum on which the
vine is growing, but do not absorb any
ourishment from it. As the stems
get older these roots may wither and
form a bearded fringe along their
These are but a few of the numerous
plant climbers, but sufficient to at
tract the attention of the nature lover
nd arouse his inerest and curiosity
to search for other examples.
