LET WEEDS GROW
City Officers are Notifying
Citizens of Fact and Ap-
peal for Co-Operation
' "Ilavo you made any arrests yet, of
people who refuse to cut their weeds,"
was a question put to M. M. Barnes,
who Is deputized for the job of Beeing
that the weeds of tile city fall to the
sickle of the owner of the property

"No, I havn't made any yet, but there

And the ordinance declares that
weeds are a pubKc. nuisance, and that

A special effort is being made at

NATURE FOND OF FREAKS
Good Old Dame Seems to Take Pride
in Perpetuating Physical Oddi-
ties in Mankind.
Oeca tonally it happens that n boy
or girl Is born With webbed feet—
that is to say, with toes united by
fleshy tlt^ues It Is u phenomenon
This eccentricity is npt to be hand-
ed down from generation to genera-
tion in a family, appearing In some of
Its members, but not in others.
The Magazine of Heredity de-
scribes one such ense, In a branch of
nn old New England family. The pa
temnl grandfather was web-footed
and bequeathed his peculiar toes to
a sun, wiio passed them along to three
of his six children.
If those people were to Intermarry
f«>i tin- or four generations with an
other web-fooi. 1 family, all the .chil-
dren born would exhibit the peculiar-
ity. For nature, curiously enough,
seems always willing to perpetuate
freaks of any kind.
What we call fn a'.', or "sports,"
In the animal or the vegetable world
are nature* little experiments. It is
by flii means that she creates new
species nnd varieties. Some anthro-
pologists are of opinion that all hu-
man beings were originally black and
that the lirst white man was a sport.
It mlgbt be said that many white
people tosi-.y respond to that descrip-
tion, though not In tlio same sense.—

WRITER MUST HAVE STYLE
Without It, Declares Arnold Bennett,
He Will Be Unable to Get His
You cannot have good matter with
had style. Examine the point more
closely, a man wishes to convey n
fine* idea to you. He employs a form
of wor<K That form'of words is his
style. Having read, you say: "Yes,
tills Idea is fine." The writer has
therefore achieved his end. But In
what Imaginable circumstances can
you say. "Yes, this idea is tine, but
the style is not fine?" The sole me-
dium of communication between you
and the author has been the form of
words. The line Idea lias reached you.
How? In the words, by the words.
11 en cp the fineness ' must be In the
won: Y«m may say, superiority: "He
has expressed himself clumsily, but
I can ■ ' what lie means." By what
light? By something in the words,
in the style. That something Is fine.
Moreover, if the style Is clumsy, are
you sure that you can see what he
means? You cannot be quite sure.
And at any rate, you cannot see dis-
tinctly. The "matter" is what actually
reaches you, nnd it must necessarily be
affcyted by the style.—Arnold Bennett.
