Commisaioners Berkins and Stafford,
take exceptions to the article in the
Husbandman of Jan. ast, which sltted
that the poor fund was not being ap.
propriated as specified by law, or was
being robbed to help out some other
fund that is made insdllcient by too
small a tax levy, "while her poor live
in hovel, In rags and in fith." The
Commisioners are out in a column
letter in the Helena Herald, turning
the editor down in a very mity manner.
They attriblte his assertion to igno
rance of law and facts. Below wllbe
found the meat of their reply:
The poor fund, L mays, "i raised by
a per ca ita tax, and the poor nlan
working day's wages pays as much
as tie bonanza farmer and the cattle

tax i levied an other taxes, and it shall
be no kMl than one mill nor more than
five i mills Revised Ltatuten). The per
caplta poor tax of2 i* la "special" tax.
In Alengler oounty the tax levied in
1884 for the benefit of the poor was two

Hle ays further that from 01,000 to
'2,t0O in annually taten from the poor
fund of each county to help out some
,ther fund that has run il-ort. "In

If Lie aforesaid editor had been ai

e Butter is the mature fruit of the full.
I blown cow. It is the greate effor
of bher life. The cow tos not either
does she spin, yet I say uato you that
Solomoun i all his glory could not beat
her on hand-made, or rather milk.maid,
better. This subi oke I have re
pard and newly upaore for use
during the winter.
Butter comes from the cow in a
liquad state. It is quite a trick to win
Sher condence so that she will yield it
uptoatotalstranger. Ioace sough
ao woo the lacteal luid fros the milk
emtort of a large speckled cow to whom
I was a tranger. She wan't one
of those blooded cows that look as
though they have been cut out of a
sheet of paper with a pair of scisors.
She was a low cow with coarse in
stincts, born in obscurity.
Her brow was low, but she wore
her tail high and she was haughty--oh,
so haughty. The young man who had
hitherto acquired the milk from this
cow desired one evenin; to hie him
away to a neighboring vllge, where
he might trip the light bomentic toe
till the wee sma' hours avont the twa.
[Quotations from a poet who was a
poor speller.] He wanted me to milk
hi, large, speckled, plebeian cow, and I
said I would. The movement was
certainly ill-advised. I undertook to
do as I had agreed, but failed. From
the momei n I entered her stall and
made a commonplace rem.xrk to her,
I knew our acquaintance would not
lead to a warm attachment. Som.
how I telt constrained and uneasy in
her society from the maoment we met
until loving hands pulled me through
the stable window and brought me
back to consciousness. I shall never
undertake to milk a strange cow again
until the sign ais right. So far the sign
has not been right.
I may be sent on a polar expedition
and get stranded on an iceberg, with
no other alternative but to milk a cow
or eat an old friend, but I should hate
to tackle the cow unless the friend was
g very old friend indeed.
Butter is produced by expunging the
juice from a rare and costly chemical
known as cream. Cream is bhead on
the milk. Milk is known as dry and
extra dry. A good milkman will al
ways ask whether you want your milk
wet or otherwise.
An old well digger named GradyI
told me about going over into Indiana
at one time to dig a well for a man
named Withum. Withum was said to
be very close. He was the most con
tiguous man in Indiana. His wife
used to skim the milk on one side then
turn it over and skim the bubbles otW
It was a constant struggle between
Withum and his wife to see which
would be the meaner.
The first day that Graly was there
they had a rounnd ball ol butter about
as big as a lemon and as hard as Pha
raoh's heart. The butter knife has a
handle that would turn every time that
anyone tried to get a lick at the butter,
antd the little round ball would flop
over on the other side and smile. Now
and then a hired man would reach
over with his own knife and make a
slash at it, but the butter, confident of
its own strength, would tip over with a
dull thud, and the man would heave a
sigh and give it "p. Then another
farm-hand would make a dash at it, but
burst into tears and quit. Finally
Grady, who had watched this perform
ance several days, jabbed his fork
down through the middle of the yel
low chunck :nd successfully cut it in
two. In the centre was a small, solid.
wooden top. "T'here," says Grady,
"I've found out what the blamed thing
is wound on. anyhow."

Mrs. Lucretia Garfield owns a gold
mine in Stanley county, about seven
miles from Albemaric. Sonne north
ern prosplectors spoke of this nmine
to President Garfiecl, wh, in con
1 junction with a friend, bought the
property and appointed an agent to
work the mine. The president had a
post-office established at the mine for
the convenience of people living in
the neighborhood. It was about the
tilne that mining operations were get
ting well under way that the presldelnt
was shot, and but little has since beein
done at the mine. It was expected
that the prolerty would be sold, but
