SAYS IT'S NO PEST.
Prof. Chubbock, Who Visited Pendle

Should Be Husbanded As It Pro
tects the Land From the Sun, Holds
Moisture and Prevents Heavy Rains
From Washing Ditches Through the
Grain Dakota Farmers Were Sorry
When They Saw It Disappearing.
Umatilla county farmers nr.e be
coming more or less alarmed at tho
spread of the Russian thistle through
the farming districts, as the Idea pre
vails generally, that the plant Ib a
pest of the worst class.
The opinion of Professor Chubbock.
Ian agricultural specialist in the cm-
! ploy of the agricultural department,
! concerning- this plant will bo Interest

' paign ngalnst farm pests Is being gen
erally carried on.
! Professor Chubbock visited Pendle
I ton n few years ago, and noticing a
heavy growth of Russian thistle on
the reservation, snld the farmers
j should be glud to see this beneficial
I weed spreading over the wheat bolt.

If the professor's conclusions were
right, farmers should study the uses
' of the plant before exterminating It, j
1 ns he soys it Is entirely harmless.
I and in fact acts as a protector to the i

The farmer makes a more hitter
warfare on the Russian thistle be-
' cause of its name man ior any inner
