Slate Board Increase Valuation to Off
Set Loss by Prohibition -Women
By Means J? ay.
Tho State Board of Equalization
lias fixod tho nssessed valuation ol
all property in the state (or this
yenr at $2,271,205,994. The value
fixed by the Board is an increase
if approximately twenty per cent,
which is n result of the adoption
nt tho Fedoral prohibition amend
ment which will result in quito a
loss in tho state's revenues.
The meeting of tho Board was
attoudod by Governor Gardner,
Attorney General McAllister,
State Treasurer Middlokamp and
Secretary of tho State John L.
Sullivan. Auditor Hackmann was
not there- There has beeu much
speculation as to what he would
linally do on this question about
l lie Capitol but none predicted that
hit would not be at tho mooting.
Mr. Ilackmau states that he was
not "side-stepping" the matter.
It ia believed by most everyone
that the increase which will giye
tho revenue of the state a hike of
20 per cent which is sufficient to
care for the necessary expendi
tures of the common wealth dur
ing the present decade.
The assessment of various classes
of property in the state in com
pniison to 1918, is as follows:
Lund 1918. $559,483,473; 1919
Town Lots 1918, $912,209,314;
Horses 118, $2,020,000; 1919 ,
Mules 1918, $14,514,173; 1919,
1 Asses and. Jennets 1918 $002,
322; 1919. $720,l(i3.
Cattlti 1918, $41,010,740; 1919,
Sheep 1918, $1,397,4GG;
IIors 1918, $5,830,295;
Other Livo Mock 1918,
702; 1919, $270,847.
Money Notes and Bonds-
$119,990,898: 1919, $187,477,851.
Banks 1918, $09,819,523; 1919,
Other Corporations 1918, $1G,
177,078; 1919, $17,825,111.
Other Personal Properly 1918,
$124,109,134; 1919, $155, 13G.853.
A startling fact was discovered
by a comparison of the assessments
of St. Louis and Kansas City
when it was shown that practically
$0,000,000 nioro in money, notes
and bonds are turned in for taxes
by Kansas City than by St. Louis.
Tho totals for the two are: St.
Louis, $2O,G80,57O; Jackson coun
The Board reduced tho valuation
fixed by tho old Tax Commission
which placed it at $4,134,523,194.
The reduction was voted by Gen

Summer Treatment of The Siraw
Strawberry buds 1 lint nro lo bo
fruit oil anotlior year should have
their tops cut promptly after tliu
ft'iiilin seiton, advisos V.
Unrdner, of tho University of
Missouri Colleen of Agtictilture.
This may bo done with u sojtlio or
in the "onso of largo plantations
with a mower. Care should be
exercised not to out so "close to the
ground as to injure the crowns.
After the tops havo dried a few
days tho bed should bo humeri
over. Tho burning gets rid of tho
old tops and most of the mulching
material and nt (he same time
destroys insects and fungus dis
eases. It is desirable to select a
time for tho burning when there
is a lair breeze blowing so that the
liro will sweep over the bed rather
quickly and not have a chance to
smoulder and destroy the crowns."
llight after burning over tho bed
should bo cultivated thoroughly.
Now leaves will then develop
quickly to nmiiufnctuio food ina
toriuls out of which tho fruit buri&
for next season's crop nro formed.
Cultivations should be frequent
enough during tho remainder of
tho growing Minsou to jcecp down
weeds. nmiM'i-vn lntiisrui'u 'iiml
otherwise promote a strong vigor-1
ous vegetative growth of the
plants, While it in desirable toj
have tho plants form some new
runners during the summer
months, in the case of old beds
excessive runner formation should
lie discouraged. lAnoe the plants
to rievoto their cnergirs t.o the
production of fruiting crowns amj
fruit buds rather than dissipating
them through tho production of
many new runners. This can be
done by frequent cultivation that
maintains rather narrow rows of
plants and fairly wide cultivated
stiips between the. rows. In case
of small' plantations it may bo
profitable to go over the bed two or
three times and remove the run
ners by blind.' Weather nmrii
lions have been -so favorable for
growth this past spring that ni'i'iny
strawberry beds- that otherwiso
would be plowed can bo fruited
profitably another year.
Money saved is what counts.
