Although the Compressed air system is in larger Use, hfe pronounces the saine verdict upofi 1L No better confirmation of this opinion cotild be made than that shown by the present status of the several systems in use in France. Although the trol» ley system was introduced but three years ago in that country it runs already over 500 miles, -while there are at present but forty-one miles of compressed air roads, although that system was established in 1881. There has not been added a single compress* ed air line since the trolley asserted its superiority. The mileage of superheated steam roads is even smaller than that of compressed air roads. The downfall of compressed- air traction M. Abdank attributes to the greater cheapness and simplicity of the trolley, the repair cost alone on air motors used in France being enormous. M. Abdank regards the cable system as antiquated and doomed soon to become obsolete. American manufacturers of electrical railway apparatus are Urged to study the conditions now existing throughout France, and especially in Paris, where the general introduction of both underground and overhead trolley systems is likely to take place before the opening of the International Exhibition In 1900.

Keultcd 111 the IimuKurnl Address ol Governor Johnston. Governor Joseph F. Johnston was Inaugurated governor of Alabama Dec. 1. Befii're taking the oath of office he delivered a long address, sounding the keynote of his administration, 'Which Is to promote the development of Alabama's resources and improve the condition of her people. Speaking of the resource's of the state he said: "With an area of but little more than fifty thousand square miles, there is no territory of like size in the known world so prolific in the variety of its resources; were a wall erected around our state, cutting off all access, we could produce within our borders everything necessary for the comfort or convenience of man. Great veins of iron ore and seams of coal put at our command almost boundless resources in fuel, iron, and steel. Splendid forests of yellow pine here stand ready to build homes for millions of people. Building stone and marbl;;, fire clay, kaolin and lime exist in great abundance; walnut, maple, oak, cherry, ash and other hard woods await the hand of man for manufacture or the adornment of our homes. In the production of pig iron we take rank as the fourth state in the union; in iron ore, third; in coal we stand fifth; in the production of cotton, fourth, and In its manufacture, fourth. In lumber we are near the head of the list. It would be unjust should I fail to Include in our minerals copper, lead, graphite, marl and gold; indeed, the only mineral that we seem to be without and to want most is silver, Leav- ing'forest and mine, and coming to pur fields we find that they produce generously cotton, corn, wheat, rye. oats, The ItuBBlnn Thistle Has Done Grout Injury to Crops. The dandelion Is not an old-world flower, not a native of America, save far to the north and on some of the highest of our western mountains, says St. Nicholas. But somehow It was brought here, perhaps from England In old colonial times. Now wo see Its golden heads and feathery balls at every grassy roadside, the "clocks" the boys and girls blow to tell the hour. A few years ago farmers in the northwest found a new weed, a vile, prickly weed, In thoir wheat fields. In a very short time this weed, the Russian thistle, has spread over wide acres of the best farm land In that part of the country and has done great Injury to the crops. How do these plants spread so fast and so far? They are not carried about and planted. No one would be so foolish as to sow Russian thistles. The mother-plant must have ways of her own for sending her offspring abroad Into the world. Plants People usually pick out their teinptatiohs. Six women can talk' at once, and get along all right—but no two men can do it, A bohemlan IS a man Who 1 borrows money on the strength of Wearing a eoiled collar, Many a matt who wore shoulder straps during the War has been strap' ped ever since. The virtue which parley* is sure to surrender; moral strength gives a negative at once. The man who entertains his thoughts would not always like for 1 his neighbors to see his guests. The great thing in this world Is not so much where we are, but in what direction wo are moving. Rev. P. J. Berg, Pastor of the Bwod- Ish M..E. church, Des Moiues, imva, on March 4th, 1890, writes: "Last year 1 was troubled with a bad Cough for about flve months. 1 got medicine from my family physician and I tried other remedies without relief. When I flrsl saw Dr. Kay's Lung Btilm advertised I thought I would try it and I am glad I did. I bought a box and took a tablet now and then without nny rcgtilar- ity and after a few days, to my great surprise, the cough was gone. Ten days ago I had« sore throat; I was out of tablets and-could not get them in Des Moines, and I sent to the Western office of Dr. B. J. Kay Medical Co., Omaha, Neb., for six boxes and as soon as I took it a few times that soreness and hoarseness all passed away in one night. I believe it Is also good for sore throat."

When we come to our climate we find that the Giver of all good things has not stayed His hand, and that He has blessed us with opportunity to labor twelve months In the year without detriment to health or comfort.

Sometimes these buda are borne on slender runners. A strawberry plant, after it has blossomed, begins to send out such runners, with buds, unfolding tufts of leaves, along them. These tufts are at first connected with the parent plant, but later the runners between break away and each tuft becomes a new plant. Many grasses, like Bermuda grass and the troublesome quick or couch grass, have creeping stems, each joint sending out a bunch of roots below and a bud on the upper side.
