Prof. Chubbock, Who Visited Pendle ton, Said This Alleged Farm Pest 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.

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. !
