In endeavoring to discourage by
legal enactment the smokinir of cigar
ettes, the state of Ohio has adopted a
different course from that which has
been twice unsuccessfully attempted hi
Massachusetts. In this state it has
been sought to impose a pealty upon
all who manufactured or sold cigar
ettes. The Buckeye state has enacted
law which went into effect the first
of this month, which provides for the
payment of a special tax of "100 per
annum by retailers and 300 per annum
by wholesalers of the ordinary cigar
ette with paper or straw wrappers.

unknown until a man recently arrived

anniversary approached the ides of the exviOBl
tlon arcw In popularity, and by the beeinnlnir
of 1PW the people of the country had decided
that such an exposition should e held. Its lo
cation, by common consent, was left with the

"Where is my vest? Oh, here 'tis
Just where I shied it last night"
Fred picked up his vest from behind
the bed, and then looked around for his

Stirring among collars and neckties,
turning things up and down in a way
that would lead anyone reasonably to
give him credit for any amount of dis
order, Fred at length found a collar.
'Now, my necktie. Where did I put
the one I wore in the morning, when I
dressed in the afternoon? Of course,
some one was in here straightening up
my room. I never know where to find
anything after that. Come in."
Fred turned a face full of abused ex
pression toward the door as his moth
er's entrance followed her tap upon it.
"Good morning. Are you ready for
breakfast, dear? Here is one of your

Who took it away?"
"Susan carried away for the wash the

with a discouraged face, "how often

"O mother, 'tidy" may do very well
for girls or women. It's a real girls
word. I think."
"tiood fir either boys or girls. I am
Sorry to see such an ugly habit growing
"Ili-ally, mother," said Fred, with a
return of the injured lok, "one would
think from your talk that you thought
it a real sin that you look upon it as
you might look upon lying or stealing
"No. Hut in evil habit is evil, make

I wonder you don't find enough incon

"ly carelessness, mother? Why, if
my things could only lie left alone, 1 d

into the room, I never know where to
find anything, because so 1 e one has
been setting things in order. Of course
I don't mean, mother dear, that all you
do is not the very best that could lie
done; but a boy, you know," Fred put
on a dignified air, "can't be expected to
be just like a girl, and ought, I think,
to be allowed to follow out his own
war a little in his own room."
"How do von think it would work if
you were left to your own way?" said
Lis mother with a smile.
"Kntirely? Why, mother, I think it
would lie hue.
"I have a great mind to let you try
it," she said.
"Do, mother!" said Fred, eagerly. "I
rcver could see the use with all re
spect for you, yon understand of this
everlasting sweeping and dusting. I'll
agree to take entire charge of the room
if I may be left to myself."
"Well," said mother, still with the
smile, "I think Susan would better
make yonr bed."
"No," interposed Fred. "Sometimes
I have things lying there that I don't
want touched. "
"Then she need only attend to the
wnslistaniL You may bring me any
thing which needs mending, for I'm
afraid that it might make the keeping
of our agreement difficult for me if I
made visits to the room."
"I will. I want to do the sweeping
myself that is, if it needs any sweep
ing for Susan always plays the mis
chief with my specimens." - - -
"You may try it" And mother went
down to breakfast still smiling..
For a few days Fred rejoiced in his
new-found freedom, as he called it
freedom to fling his things this way
and that in full assurance that he
would have the delight of finding them
exactly where he had flung them. -
' "But I must say it gets a little mo
notonous," he -admitted . to himself,
with a little shake of his head, "to find
all my ceats and -vests -and 'Uoushs

Fred put all his strength Into the
wielding of the broom. It had been a
rainy week, and Susan's careful hands
had not supplemented her morning care
of the room by gathering with brush
and dust-pan of the mud which hi
careless feet brought In. It was now

- Late in the day Fred rushed back to
his room to make ready for an evening
to be spent in company which he held
hi high esteem. Fred's slovenliness did
not as a general tiling, extend to the
care of his person, his mother having
often had occasion to wonder at the
neat appearance with which he con

The dust from which he had fled lay
thickly upon everything, adding die

carefully darkened the white streak,
but as he turned from a study of the ef

He snatched it up. "The last one I

the front of the lightest-colored tie he
could find. ..But it was the towel which
had already done duty as a duster, and
was streaked with the sooty dust which
prevails in a house in which bitumin

As the tie soon looked rather worse

MAMMOTH OYSTERS. .
Bivalves of Chlnroteaxne Bald to Be of
Marvelooe Mlxe snd Welajfat., , .
Among the fine things that spring
and summer deprive us of are oysters,
since they are said not to be good in
months that are spelled without an R.
It is perhaps just as -well that this
should be as it is, because voracious
man is so fond of oysters that if they
were pleasant to eat all the year round
we might find after awhile that they,
like the lobsters, were growing more
and more scarce every day. However
fond of oysters men may be, they
should be very careful to know exactly
what kind of-oysters the particular
place in which they happen.. to be fur
nishes for the delectation of oyster
eaters. For instance, in London a man
who does not like the taste of copper
would better not order them at all, for
it Is, a singular fact that oysters served
at London hotels taste as though they
had been born and bred in a copper
mine instead of in the waters of the
sea. But most of all it must be. re
msmbered by those i fortunate, per
sons who nave bad the privilege of
visiting inobBtjet"wberTer that
delightful place. : may- be, that when.

PUBLIC ROADS IN IOWA, j
To Subject IMseasaed try the Gowns-
the Hawkeve State.
Compared with the nnmber of our
people and their ability to pay taxes
we have a very large mileage of public
highways, no part of which can be en
tirely neglected, and our road taxes
collected and expended as they hereto
fore have been are barely sufficient to
keep most of these highways, which
must be used, in a passable condition.
It is doubtf ul whether our people are
yet ready to submit to additional bur
dens 'in the Shape 6f highway taxesi
What then can be done?
This is the practical question;
All will concede that if our roof
taxes were paid in money, and judi
ciously expended under the direction
of experts skilled in the art of making
roads, much more could be accom
plished than is now; but it is doubtful
whether there would be general assent
to a plan which would require the pay
ment of all road taxes in money.
Still it is apparent that any system
which will result in the permanent im
provement of out- highways absolutely
requires a cash fund with which to be
gin and tbe oversight of persons skilled
in the art of making roads. Such per
sons cannot usually be found within
the road districts, and if found could
not afford to spend their time for the
compensation allowed a road supervisor.
But Upon smooth dry land, devoid oi
engineering difficulties of all kinds,
anyone can construct a highway that
will be reasonably passable at any sea
son of the year, and this part of tha
work, covering much the greater part
of the mileage, could in my judgment
be left in charge of local supervisors
and worked out as is now done.
It is perhaps reasonable to assume
that this would absorb one-half of the
road taxes now levied, and this share
could be paid in work if so desired.
The remainder of the road tax and all

of the bridge tax, it we are to improve
upon our present system, must be paid
in cash with the spring installment of
taxes. This would supply a cash fund,
the first essential to a change in our
Then, in every county, at least
competent engineer would be re
quired to formulate plans for the con
struction of roads at all points of diffi
culty, and this work in my judgment
should be let to the lowest bidder for
cash, his pay to depend upon the cer
tificate of the engineer that he had
completed the work according to the
The first object to be attained in the
construction of our highways is a
foundation as nearly perfect as prac
ticable. To accomplish this in bad
places will require an extensive and
sometimes complicated system of drain
age. None but competent engineers
can prepare the plans for this, and it
will be necessary to confer on theeoun
ties or road districts the power of emi
nent domain so that adjoining lands
may be condemned to enable the dis
trict to perfect these systems of
All bridges should be built under the
supervision of the engineer, and all
money collected for road taxes should
be expended in the district in which it
In this way we could at once begin
the proper construction of a permanent
foundation for our wagon roads, which
would, in my judgment, without ad
ditional expense, save the salary of an
engineer, greatly improve the present
condition of onr highways and at the
same time prepare them for gravel or
macadam when the country is old
enough and rich enough to complete
the work of converting them into per
fect roads. Gov. Horace Boies, in tiood
THE HORSE NETTLE. -
A Treed That is Common la the' West
and Southwest. ... . ?
The horse nettle (Solanmn Caroli
nense) is a .well-known .troublesome
weed in Illinois, Missouri, . Kansas,
southern Iowa, Arkansas and south to
northern Texas, It is a perennial and
produces long and deep roots, some
times more than three feet Ordinary
plowing will not kill them, they must
be dug up, but the best plan for then
destruction is to cut the plant oft sev
eral inches below the ground. In no
case allow any leaves to appear above
the surface. The leaves are the organs
of the plant in which food is made and
this is stored away abundantly in .the
root-stock and roots.., This accounts
for some of the extraordinary vitality
of the underground parts. ' This weed
is a close kin of the potato, having vio

the gorernment to suppress the danc

are long familiar with India deride the
