Ploweed, Universal Nuisance, Hat
Boen Known to Drivs Amateur
Gardener to Profanity.
A pigweed Is both an Irresistible
force and tin Immovable body, blend
ed Into one and working overtime.
Pigweeds don't usk anything of any
body. They don't need to. Even
Dame Nuture turned round and went
uway us soon as she'd Introduced him.
Books on gardening dismiss him with
a Jaunty direction to "Keep the weeds
down." But you can't ostracize a pig
weed that way.
A pigweed begins making trouble
the minute he shows above ground.
I never saw a pigweed thut could look
niore like more kinds of young plants.
You can't tell by pulling 'em up, for
the pigweed has a long, thin red mot,
but pulling up little flower and vege
table plants by mistake discourages
em, even if you admit your error and
apologize. And, on the other hand, It
does not hurt the pigweed. Just let
him lie on the ground, und his mots
curl Into It and he goes on growing
as If nothing had happened. If you
mash one Into the ground with your
heel, you Just give him a better start,.
All they usk Is to be near enough
the ground to see It. I brought some
Into the house nnd put them on the
window-sill, where they could see out
by raising up n bit, and they all grew.
You could lock them up In a closet,
and If your bunds were soiled when
you handled 'em, they'd get enough
nourishment to live on.
The only sure way to get rid of one
Is to can lilm und hum the can.

Impossible to Set Boundaries That
Shall Confine the Growth ef
the English Language.
William Shakespeare's vocabulary
was about 15,500 words. John Milton
needed only 8,000 different words for
"Paradise Lost," while the Old Testa
ment has fewer than 0,000 different
words. Some people use only ubout
800 different wordR, and most of us
get along with between 2,000 and
3,000. A few years ago some peasants
In rural England, farm laborers, were
found who used about 800. Prof. Mux
Muller (1823-1900), the great Oxford
philologist, who was perhaps the
greatest authority of his age on this
subject, put the number of words In
the English language at 100,000. "If
we Include all the words which have
fixed places In the dialect of the coun
try," says "The Book of Knowledge,"
"and Include also many which we
know were spoken lu earlier times, we
shall have to put the total at 400,000
for the English language." The num
ber Is constantly growing. When a
new dictionary was made, some years
ago, it wus found that the new words
necessary for use Iu relation to elec
tricity and electrical appliances num
bered o er 4,000. A similar lucrense
had taken place with regard to oilier
arts and sciences.
Jane Simply Could Not Underctand
Peculiarity Manifested by Those
Baeeball Players.
, Jane always Insisted that she want
ed to share all my pleasures. I was
not quite so sure ubout It, but dlplo-
mucy has Its uses, so I said nothing.
At length It became impossible to
postpone again taking her to the ball
game. I drew a long breath, muttered
a prayer for guidance, and gave In.
"That man out there on the mound
Is culled the pitcher. He pitches," I
" "That man with the bat-r-wlth the
club Is the batter. He hits the
hall. ..."
"Why?" asked Jane.
"It doesn't matter," I continued.
"He didn't hit It.
If he had sue- ,
reeded, however, he would have run
toward that sack, which Is called first
huse, and If he gets there before the
ball he is safe."
"But I thought you said the g'ame
wus not dangerous," Jane objected.
"Only to otherwise happy mar
riuges," I responded.
"Oh !" said Jane.
"If a man gets to first base," I re
sumed, "the succeeding batters try to
advance him by hitting the ball. If
he goes all the way around, piist sec
ond and third bases, and reaches home
plute without being put out. a run Is
scored for his team.
"When three men are put out. the
other side comes to the bat, nnd when
ench side has had nine turns at hat
the game Is over. The team that makes
the most runs wins.
"Is thnt clear?" I asked.
"Perfectly," Jane nssured me. "But
one thing I don't understand."
"What U It?" I Inquired.
"Why Is It," Jane queried, "why Is
It thnt the men wear mittens only on
one h:;nd? It seems so silly.'
A senile Judge decided that my sub
sequent remarks - constituted mental
