Now and then some new discovery or achievement is proclaimed which\ makes one wonder whether our zeal for, sfllcleney does not carry us too far| along new lines. tit has recently been announced that English foresters have learned how to grow square trees. They are hot yet lelrig grown on a profitable commercial ,cale, but that is supposed to come in time.
