WORKING FOR ROCK ROADS
Movement Haa Scarfed In Clay County
to Connect the Towns with
An agitation for a system of rock
roads In Clay( county has been started
in the last week, and If the roads are
built practically every town In Clay
county would be connected with Liber
ty, the county seat. The movement
has had Its beginning among large
land owners and the idea is to build
the roads by a bond issue of one-halt
million dollars or more by the county.
W. E. Campbell of North Kansas
City and J. C. Wright of Smlthvllle,
two of the leaders for permanent road
improvement, have figured that the tax
for about one hundred miles of rock
road would be only about four mills on
the dollar of assessed valuation, the
tax on land being only about Ave cents
an acre each year for twenty years,
it is stated.
Clay county property has an assess
ed valuation of close to fourteen mil
lion dollars. It is believed the people
of the towns would be willing to help
bear the expense In order to see the
county have good roads.
Routes suggested for the roads are
from Liberty to North Kansas City,
and to Excelsior Springs and Missouri
City, also to Kearney and Holt and
Nashua and Smlthvllle, with a north
and south road over the present Inter
state trail from Smlthvllle through
Gashland and Linden to North Kansas
City. It 1b realized the question will
have to be thoroughly discussed and
the benefits of the Improved system of
roads made plain to get the bonds
voted. Meetings are to be held to dis
cuss the question.
ST. LOUIS BANKS LOSE CASE
1 Federal Court of Appeals Upholds De
! cision Regarding the Payment of
The I'nlted States circuit court of
.t, 'peals at St. Louis uphold the de
cision of the lower court whereby
money paid by national banks for
state taxes Is assessable tinder the
federal corporation excise tax. The
decision affects till national banks in
Missouri and Is believed by some lo
cal bunkers to affect national banks
throughout the country.
The decision was rendered In the
case of the National Bank of Com
merce of St. Louis vs. E. B. Allan,
former Internal revenue collector for
eastern Missouri. Tor the recovery of
about $5,000 paid as a federal excise
tax. This was a test case arranged
by the St. Louis Clearing House As
sociation. The federal corporation excise law
creates a tax of 1 per cent on all net
income exceeding $6,000 annually.
The National Bank of Commerce
claimed that approximately $500,000,
which it had paid as state taxes dur
ing 19H9, 1910 and 1911. should not
have been assessed under the federal
excise tax law.

COMMON DISEASE OF SHEEP
Animals Afflicted With Foot Rot
Should Be Removed to Clean, Dry
Lands and Trouble Attended To.
The first thing to do for sheep with
foot rot is to get them on to clean,
high, dry lands. Their feet should
then be examined and any foreign mat
ter between the toes, which may be ag
gravating the case, removed. All
ulcers containing pus should also be
opened and the pus drained off.
The next thing to do Is to apply
strong disinfectants to kill the trouble
some parasites. Ointments made of a
lard or lard-and Hour body, with car
bolic acid or sheep dip in generous
proportions incorporated, are some
times used for this purpose. This Is
applied after the loot has been thor
oughly bathed and cleaned up. This
treatment requires considerable time
and effort and is not practical in large
TRIMMER FOR HORSE'S FEET
Tool, Resembling Pair of Pliers, In
vented by Idaho Man, Neatly Re
moves Superfluous Growth.
For the neat and expeditious trim
ming of a horse's hoof, an Idaho man
recommends a tool that he has pat
ented. It resembles a pair of pliers
with an extra Joint. A pair of cutting
jaws are pivoted together and to each
of the jaws an arcuate rack is pivoted.
These racks, which constitute the In
ner ends of the handles and have stop
shoulders beyond them", mesh with
each other on their Inner faces. The
rack members are held together by a
yoke that has rollers on both sides,
so that It moves readily back and
forth. This allows complete freedom
of movement of the various parts of
the tool, yet keeps the lntermeshed
teeth of the racks from slipping out of
place and making the implement use
less. The cutting jaws are operated
over the top of the hoof.

substitute well by the use of any of
the small grains for hay and the sub
stitution will prove more profitable
per acre than the native prairie.
