STUMP BURNERS MAKE A FIND, FROM INDIA One of those College avenu stump burners poked his heac out of the straw Friday night when he read about that plant they grow in India. An item carried in the Telegraph told about a flower which was exhibited at the Alton Horticulture Society meeting. It needs no water or soil. Stump burners haven't been heard from since last leaf-raking. his is the kind of thing that jrings them back into the open. Stump burners, you'll remem- 3er, are those Pietown men who levise ways to look as if they ire laboring, when they are not. tump burning, for instance, akes a lot of sittln' and watchin' nd occasional pokin' but not much muscle. These lilies from India could get a fellow through a season of gardening in good shape. "You put in a yard full of those and you are going with the smart money," this one, awakening, tump burner said. He hadn't quite figured out low he was going to employ the act that you don't even have to dig a hole for them. "They don't need any soil, so he planting is unnecessary," he mused. "Old tomato cans might do it. Just put cans out in the yard and stick this plant in it." The fact that they then would not have to be watered, or hoed, or pruned is breath-taking. "And there is another thing to consider," he added. "If the water rates go up, you can always tell the people who might suspect evasion of labor is your purpose, that you are trying to avoid sprinkling your garden." This fellow thought that this plant from India was sure fire He said the stump burners hav been looking for something t match the properties of burninf stumps. This waterless, soiless plan from India will carry the boys from late 1 spring until late summer, closing a rather horrible gap that was filled by deceptions, lies, and sometimes, when there was no other course, to just plain work of gardening and sprinkling.
