known citizea of Battle Creek, yesterday

1 he Kentucky legislature has passed a
bill taxing each revolver in the State
t..0. This Is a good deal more sensi
ble than taxing silver watches. most of
which are not worth the amount of the
tax. If Kentucky enforces rigidly the
new law, in a year she will have more
money In her treasury than she will
know what to do with. as nearly every
adult male carries at least one pistol and
a good many of them have a shooting
iron in each pocket.
When the new silver certifcates, the
designs for which are now in course of
preparation, are issued, the people of the
country will begin to apreciate the faet
that the treasury is in possession of
Democrats. The silver certifeates now
out have been generally eomdemned as
inartistic.and the management of the
Bureau of Engraving and Printing in
the new issues of all denominations
hopes to make a decided improvement.
The design for the ten-dollar certificates
is graceful in lettering and scroll work,
