Tennessee Dog Law.
Correspo'idciit Cincinnati Commercial.
Chattanooga, November 20, ,o.
MOKE DOGS THAN MEN.
It is a humiliating fact that
there are more dogs in Tennessee
i than men. lletums irom the doz
i t:ix assessment from thirty coun-
troller's office, show 47,o4 men
anil 70,980 dogs. These thirty
counties do not emrrace quite
one-third of the State, but from
them we can judge pretty fairly
what the totals will he. When
all the returns are in, the totals
will no doubt show that Tennes
see contains nearly one htin
dred thousand more dogs than
men. This is among the "great
inducements to immigration ' to
the farming class who would nat
urally want to raise sheep in this
favored climate, .
And right here let me say wha
I firmly believe to be true, name
ly, that the dog tax imposed bj
the last Legislature hasdone more
to induce immigration to this State
from the farming class than al
the "Bureaus cf Emigration," al
the Commissioners, all the print
ed documents circulated, and al
the newspaper letters written.
Not a law lias been passed since
the war that will redound so a
bundautly to the State. Time
and agnin the attempt has been
made to impose a dog tax, but
the efforts have always been stilled
by prejudice and ignoranfe until
the' last Legislature took the bull
by the horns.
DOGS VS. SHEEP.
Tenni'ssee is naturally one of
the finest sheep raising sections
.)i the world. Tennessee wool
bas repeatedly taken the prom
ium iit the "World lairs, notably
at Paris and London, where nil

one eighth of the entire area (if

This of ite!f is a difference wm'th

oaid out for

ainmsg the tiinlty p puiution,
niKing ttieiii r:cnor every year
'as their lax duplicate annually
"hows.) while in lemussee not
me-si'xth enough wool is raised
lor home comsumption! Money is
mnually drained from this poor
State to buy woolen clothing for
the population, and money tio
that never comes hack, for there
is nothing to bring it. The in
crease in wealth in Michigan in
one year is more than it. is ia Ten
nessee in eight years. And in
Massachusetts the increase in
wealth in five years is more than
ill Tenuessee is worth. Tint is,
the people of Massachusetts actu
ally earn and save more iu five
years than all Tennessee would
bring, if sold at a fair valuation.
Notwithstanding that last , year
was a hard year, the increase of
valuation of property in Massa
chusetts on the tax books was
sisty-eight millions of dollars, and
it is doubtful if Tennessee tins
year will show one-hundredth of"
this sum. Indeed, from the tax
duplicates already sent iuto the
Comptroller fro::i thirty counties,
there is an actual falnncr off of a-
bout 8100.000 from last year.
Lut m these thirty counties there
are over 70,000 dugs, or about
three dogs to every two men.
Wh;it is lacking in wealth is made
up in dogs, lo say nothing ot
the sheep those dogs kill, and the
almost complete annihilation of
the wool business in general
which they cause in addition to
all this, actually consume enough
to fatten hogs for home cousump-
tion. In Massachusetts the
"swill" from the kitchen, embrac-
the refuse from the table,
(which in Tennessee is thrown to
the dogs,) fatten a sufficiency of
pork for home consumption.
Yet the waste from the table here
is largely more than there, for here
lot bread three times a day is the
rule, and whatever is over, goes j
to tin dors.
Not lon ago I met

Of course he wanted to raise cheep, . ty lvai am personal, is only

that as naturally as a duck takes
to water, He was delighted with
the prospect dogs excepted.
He told me that he had wintered
his sheep here at a cost of ten
cents per head, while in Michigan
it cost him one dollar. But a-
greater advantage still was that
he had never lost a young lamb
here from cold, whereas in Michi
gan, in winter, the loss was large.
Lambs dropped in Tennessee, e-
ven in midwinter, were healthy
and thrifty, and grew like pigs,
whereas in Michigan the chances
were against the tender new com-
ers at that time of year being a-
ble to survive.

REMARKABLE DOG DEVELOPMENTS.
It is a sadly significant fact
that every one of the thirty coun-
ties (from every division of the
State) the returns from which
have been sent in. contains more

i i l l i n
cates are made out it is probable

Is not this positively discour-
aging? Can a people, supporting
such, members of non-nroducinc
animals, .ever attain wealth? A
sneep is a prouueer; eveiy one is
an item of wealth; every pound of
wool sent out ot tlie btate brings

novertv of the population. On
the other hand, sheep are an ein
hUm of civilization, thrilt, wealth.
Where you Gnd them in greatest
number, ou find wealth, indus
try, comfort, intelligence, thrift.
Where dos are the rule and sheep
the exception, you find poverty,
shift lespr.ess, ignorance.
The returrs fiom the thiitv
counties, taken as a basis, indi
cate that there are about 225,0C0

in many counties is exceedingly

Although the dog law is im
mensely unpopular now in sec
tions of the State whcre they
have most dogs and least of any
thing else, .yet a strong and
growing sentiment is in favor
of the law. The man possess
ing a really valuable dog should
not object to paying one dollar
upon him, while the tax will
have a tendency to rid the State
of- the tens of thousands of
thy Country's, thy God's, and
- worthless curs which are an un
- mitigated nuisance, a curse, a
blight upon industry, a barrier
to Wealth, a Check tO immigra
tion, and a token of poverty
and shiftlessness. II. V. R.

Broggs who lives in Elliott's

of this statement arose in his
mind, and to settle the matter
for himself, he resolved to give
the thing a practical test. Xow
Broggs has no horse, but does
own a very intelligent and fris-
ky young mule, so he thought
it just as well to try the ex
periment with him. There is a
narrow lane leading from the
clover patch, to the water
trough, and he sent his little
son Bobby to open the gate

in the pasture all day and con

came waltzing down the lane at

noted a fair trial of the test.
And so it was, but not exactly
as Broggs would have desired.

skepticism. When within a
