FICHT ON CANADIAN
. THISTLE NECESSARY
Districts Urged To Take Ad
vantage Of Recently Enac
Although farmer's in " general agree
that the Canadian Thistle is a menace
to 'the county and that the acreage of
thistle" is gradually increasing, nothing
special is now being done'" to take ad
vantage of the lay regarding thistles
passed by the late legislature.
Only one section of the county has
attempted to -"kill off thistles by com
plying with tho -new law and thivt is
Victor Point. As thistles were becom
ing a real menace, .a number of farm
ers in that section complied with the
law and formed what is called a this
tle district and applied to the county
for relief. However, before direct action
could be taken, the ownevs or renter
of the land with thistles growing re
moved them and no court action was
Judge Bushey says that road super
visors, according to the new law, can
legally cut thistles only on the road
way, unless they are appointed by the
county court for some -special work.
Hence it is useless to apply to the coun
ty court askinff that supervisors kill
thistles on laud in any special district.
Tho proper mode of working is fust
to form what is known as a thistle; dis
trict, and present a petition to the coun
ty court, describing the bounds in
which it is wished to have thistles re
moved. The county court then appoints
a man to notify the owners or renters
on which the offending thistles are
found and they are given ten days in
which to remove them. If not removed
at the expiration of the ten days, the
county court appoints a man or party
to remove the thistles and the expenses
thereof is taxed against the land as a
lien, nd the property may De sola at
sheriff's sale to recover the amount ex
pended. Neither Judge Bushey nor the
county commissioners are : empowered
by the new law to order thistles re
moved. A thistle district must be formed
and then proceedings must be according
to the late law.
There's a limit to which your y vSy"
