Noah Barlow, Natchez, Miss., writes to Prof. Riley, who hands us the query: "Having tried in vain to kill the roots of the Paper mulberry, I take the liberty of writing to you, in the hope that you will be able to tell what will kill the roots, or will stop them from coming up all over my yard. I have killed the trees, but this does not stop the roots from growing. I hope that you can give me a remedy."

[Pulling up each sprout as it appears, before it has many leaves, will utterly stop the nuisance. It may have to be done two or three times in the season. Possibly one or two may come the second season, but there will not be many. - Ed. G. M.]
