the barber, beating a tattoo on the strop

Money in weeds? To be sure. The
national department of agriculture
has been for many years telliug the
farmers of the large money value go­
ing to waste each year in this coun­
try In the shape of pernicious weeds,
and has been issuing bulletins with
directions for collecting, curing and
selling weeds. A quarter of a ceutury
ago Dr. George B. Lorlng, the commis­
sioner of agriculture, called attention
to the fact that in Germany many of
the commonest and most pernicious
weeds that the American farmer has
to contend with were successfully and
profitably cultivated, says the Kansas
City Star. Burdock, dandelion, witch-
grass, foxglove, mullein, Lorehound,
Jimpson, mustard and water hemlock
are among our commonest weeds and
grow in great profusion almost every­
where in the United States. Ordinar­
ily they are regarded merely as trou­
blesome weeds. The trouble, of course.
Is in the lazy habit of attempting to
grow weeds and cultivated crops on
the same land at the same time. So
it often happens that the witchgras«
between the potato rows Is more val­
uable than the tubers iu the hills.
When you raise weeds you must make
a business o f it. Land that w ill raise
nothing else will raise weeds.
Jimpson grows In rank profusion about
the feed lot, the front yard is yellow
with dandelion flowers and the flow er«
of the mullein bedeck the pastures.
The burdock grows In the roadside
fence corners, and the waste lot pro­
duces an abundance of witchgrass and
comfrey, yet a m ajority of the drug
weeds used In medicine in this coun­
try are still Imported, and paid for
at a high rate.
W ithout counting wormwood, tansy
or rhubarb, all of which are weeds in
favored places, and without Including
catnip or pennyroyal or any of the
mints, the American people are paying
out more than $300,000 a year in hard-
earned money for Imported weeds,
which are grow ing wild in nearly ev­
ery part of the country. The Import»
for the year 1907-1908 were as fol-
