1893 Milk Weed and Thistle


Allowing milk weed and Canada thistles to go to seed is a violation of law, and all persons on whose premises it is allowed are liable to 60 days in the county jail. Overseers of the highways are responsible for their own districts, and they are also required to go over the road at least twice a year and throw all the loose stones out of the track. How many do it?

After this short article was published in The Fowlerville Review in 1893, I wonder how many headed out to their property and took care of any errant weeds and/or stones.
