John Nicholson Already Plans
for His Spring Garden of Roses
John Nicholson is already beginning- to
plan his spring gardening. U doesn't take
much to start him off and a few days like
we've been having are quite sufficient
to get him going.
John is probably the greatest catch-as-catch-ean
rose cultivator In Omaha. Ho
has a big yard surrounding his manse at
3fi30 California street, and he knows more
about the hablta of wild roses, and tame
ones, too, than any other man of 'lis
weight and size. He makes a specialty
of hybrids, which, you know (we didn't
know till he told us) are roses grafted
on to briar roots. "I raise fifty-seven
varieties of 'em," he remarks.

Philadelphia and New Tork and Oshkosh
and Kokomo and everywhere. It Is
useless for a seed catalog to try to escape
"Fe, fl, fo, fog.
I smell the blood of a seed catalog."
Thus he slugs and then, a brief chase
and first thing you know he has caught
the catalog and la gloating over pictures
of Artophloxldiae Parlensloloternlpsus
and other lovely flowers that always
