We are not 'no clear as to what the duty of the Council really is, but most re sidents are acquainted with the practice which has obtained locally for years in ,regard to the thistles which are growing so luxuriantly in the streets and vacant allotments 01 the town at the present time. The policy of the council in the jmst has invariably been to wait till after the thistles have seeded and then cut and burn them. Beyond cleaning up the streets, nothing has been Rained thereby.
