' There is no better month to kill
Canada thistle, as well as vvseds
generally, and the destruction of
bushes, than August. It is also
peculiarly a time when farmers are
not so viiiuch hurried, and when

themselves. The farmer can see

the season, the necessity ot com

The best thiag to be done with
weeds of all kinds dxtirpaftd from
the land is to use them in the
compost heap, or tv gather them
in large heaps to remain there uu
tildry, and then burnu p, "root
andbranch." The practice ot some
farmers who look only to their
ownseltish purposes, who live tor
themselves and rarely have a
neighbor with whom they are on
friendly terms, is to pull up and
throw into the public highway the
weeds from their fields. There
they are left to npen their seed,
and the first wind that comes tney
are carried away, sometimes for
miles, either into the land ot some
other farnu r or into a stream, to
be landed along the banks for a
great distance.. We have more
than once seen people calling
themselves farmers and christians
engaged in this mean business.
