Scribner's Magazine for November has an excellent article on rare and weeping trees. It is a good sign that such notices are J acceptable to the public. We could wish that the weeping Sophora were more plentiful. Why does not somebody prepare for planters the trees most desired, and keep a stock of fair size. We could have wished that the writer had told the public and enforced the fact that the Jingko tree, Salisburia, is capable of being trained to a wall as readily as a vine, and that under this treatment it is very beautiful as well as curious. It may be curved in circles, or trained to any form.
