A Heavy Tax.
MirnT mill Farmer. 1
One of tlio Ix'nvii'st taxos levied
n Ilu farmers of tli country i
imposed 1y poor roads. They
hrnMe the cost, of hauling stuil to
itntl from market because they
double the- number of loads; they
hike the life and energy of the
enm by making it hard traveling,
hard lmlling, and an everlasting
jolting and jerking, well calculated
to make a horse balk; they break
the harness, cause extra wear of it
and keep it soiled with sweat and
mud; they strain, rack, and break
the wagon, necessitating the use of
ii heavier one than would be needed
in a good road, and largely reduce
fhe eriod of its usefulness; they
cause a loss of time by slow travel
jujd frequent break-downs and tax
the pati' :v- as well as the purse.
In fact they are a costly nuisance
which would not be endured if
farmers realized the extent to which
they are taxed by their use an in
jury to everybody and a benefit to
Hog Cholera and Rats.
A very extensive breeder of
l'oland-China hogs near Lincoln,
Nebr., ran out of corn and bought
n lot of shelled corn from a neigh
bor who had lost all his hogs from
disease, and, therefore, had no use
for his corn. Soon after beginning
to feed it, the man began to lose
his hogs from cholera, and sent for
lh'. killings. On examining the
the corn it was found to be badly
rat-eaten and also that much rat
manure was mixed with it. Dr.
Hillings took, some of this manure
to his laboratory and from it got
the germ of swine plague with
which he produced the disease in
healthy hogs. Hat-eaten com
should be cleansed before being
fed to hogs, and all rat manure re
moved from it.

Fruit growing fails largely
through lack of intelligence and

hate exactness and careful study of
details. The very questions some
fruit growers ask show their ignor
