His Honour quickly ! grasped the situation and directed the lad to the press-hox. It was only an inexperienced newspaper messen ger who had mistaken the learned judge for a reporter.

ST. JOHN'S WORT. iV writer in a Melbourne - weekly paper endeavours to say something' hopeful to landholders on the subject of St. John's "Wort but only demon strates that- he has no first hand knowledge of this terrible weed. He sa.vs: "Tlie policy of putting: people on the land and smothering- them with weeds has been going- on for a good many years now,; it proceedis on par allel lines with the rabbit policy. If carried out to its extreme limits it will result in two rabbits fighting for one blade of grass. When when the settlers are gone the rabbits are Starved to death and the weeds killed, a fresh start can be made. "The best expert advice is to be obtained, but meanwhile a proposal has been made to apply salt to the infected lands at the rate of three tons to the acre. That may be quite sufficient to 'destroy the weed, but the question may be anxiously askei Will it destroy - something else? Salt is no respecter of living planW, whe ther they be pestilent weediJ or kindly gro...
