He had been ailing for over a year Mid was confined to his bed for the past six months with stomach ulcers and complications. He was born in Sweden and was 76 years, one month and 19 days old at the time of his death. He had worked for many years at the carpenter's trade.

What I have said about the curled thistle and the wooly thistle applies to the Canadian thistle, only the Canadian thistle is not nearly j as fertile as most of them do not have seed in this part of the coun- ' try as the different patches are produced by one seed and the flowers are single sexed. both the staminate or pollen-producing flowers and pistillate or seed-producing flowers have to be present in the same patch of thistles or perhaps a bee might in gathering honey, fly frali one patch to another and carry some pollen on its body and thus fertilize some of the blooms. Listen. where both staminate and pistillate plants are found in the same patch, thrn may God save the country, for in that case we will be peppered with seed to such an extent that we will not be able to meet and conquer the At Family Reunion A family picnic was held Sunday at the parental Nelson farm near Forest City, with 24 in attendance. Families from Spencer, Mason City and Winona, Minn., were present at the gathering. Mr. and Mrs. Geo. K. Nelson and children, Donald and Doris, attended from here. When a patch of Canadian thistles is first observed it should be eradicated at once, as tt spreads rapidly from its roots. I would not dare state how far a Canadian rootatook would run in one year, as It spreads from the center all around. There are several methods of eradicating thistles. Where there are large patches they should be plowed up in the spring and cultivated every week with a spring tooth harrow or some such tool The next year the patch could be planted to corn and a close watch kept for any stray plants, and you can dig them out or spray them with sodium chlorate, which chemical will not only k!ll the plant but its roots. In treating small patches I find that spmvinsr them with sodium chlor- nte is the easiest way to eradicate them. Tnke 1'» pounds to a gallon of water nnd dissolve it and you can iret n three gallon hand sprayer that you can sling over your shoulder and you can do a lot of damage in a day. Get out on a dark cloudy day or about four o'clock in the morning and spray till light and the chemical will have time to do its deadly work before it dries up. Go back several times to each patch and make close examination lest perchance you miss a plant or one has come up after you left This is such an important question to me that I could write all day on the subject if it would do any good. Every one should be interested in the eradication of Canadian and other thistles and all noxious weeds. Thistles are now ripening fast and the down will soon be flying around. These thistles should be cut nnd burned at once. "No man llveth unto himself." If our neighbors do not enlist in this fight, there is not much sense in our fighting. Everyone who eats is interested, so let us all buckle on our sprayers and make n gallant fight against this common enemy of the human family. —A. HUTCHISON.
