It is a noticeblo fact that little
v produce or barter has been offered
tor sale here for the past month,
and on making inquiry it develops
that false reports have been circu
lated concerning the sale of bar
ter and produce.
It is currently reported in the
country that persons who bring
poultry, butter, eggs, blackberries
or other produce of the farm, gar
"Tden or orchard to town and oiler it
for sale to the dealer or consumer
is liable to a huckster's tax. The
report is also current that the leg
islature found it necessary to tax
the farmers in this way in order to
make up for the loss or revenue!

I produce and barter, such as black
berries, poultry, eggs, butter, hay,
potatoes, apples, etc. Comptroller
King replied as follows:

ii a huckster's tax is an act of a

isnqt often applicable outside of
