By The Snprtine Court Of
Columbus, O., Jan. 28 In a decision
rendered today, the supreme court or
Ohio practically knocked out .the
Smith one per cent tax law. The de
cision was given In a Putnam county
The decision In effect nullifies the
vital features of tho law. Walter S.
Stovenson, city solicitor, brought an
action in mandamus to compel the
budget commission of Putnam county
and tho auditor to place a levy on
the tax duplicate in the corporate Hm-
ita of Lelpaic aggregating 19,117 mlllB
ror all purposes.
The common pleas court took the
position that 15 mills waa the aggre
gate levy that could be made, which
waa the maximum of 1 1-2 per cent
provided for In the Smith law. Tho
circuit court roveraed tho common
pleas court and held that that maxi
mum could be oxcooded by a sufficient
amount to take care of the nlnklng
fund nnd Intorest The supremo court
upholds that view. Tho gist of the de
cision Is that the levy can exceed the
1 1-2 per cent limitation of tho law
for intorest and sinking fund. This
wholly deprives the law of its virtues
and practically knocks out tho law..

ary board has boon abolished, Supt.

YOU HAD BETTER

AND SAVE YOUR ENERGY,
says Dr Cyril G. Hopkins,
soil expert at the Illinois Experiment
Station, than continue farming on thm
plan of taking from and not putting
back into the oil thoM things which
are absolutely essential to perma
nent, successful agriculture.
And he proves this statement. But
he does more. After showing with"
irrefutable facts just why the pre
vailing American method of farm
ing is ruinous, he demonstrates how
you-can make your farm yield from
30 to 40 more bushels per acre.
