bought a new machine and declares
himself ready to begin. The farmers
agreed to let him thresh all their
grain at 7 cents a bushel, the farm

chine followed an itinerary mapped
out by the farmers' committee, in
stead of visiting farms at random,
as ha been the custom In that state.
Grain was threshed much moro
quickly and at a cost much less than
heretofore. This plan Is thought to be
a good example of efficient co-operation.

Oregon Workman's Minimum
Oregon baa a workman's minimum
of $11.61 for factory workers
farmers of Wayne county, N. Y
through a co-operative arrangement
started by the Wayne County Kami
flureau. When the co-operatlvo en
terprise was undertaken last spring
the farmers were paid 67 V4 cents a
pound. An addition dividend of $1.
C2S.01 has JiihI been received from
the buyers, which brings the average
price of the wool a pound up to 73. s
cent. When the Interest Is received
the farmera will have been patd 75.3
cents a pound. The farmers of the
county seem to think the farm bu
reau is responsible for a very suc
cessful undertaking.

PREVENTING DAMAGE
TO EGGS IN TRANSIT
The bureau of chemistry, through
the food research laboratory, has
been assisting In reducing the
damage to eggs in transit by giving
practical demonstrations at shipping
point in loading cars of egg or
mixed egg and dressed poultry.
Much of the damage 1 directly due
to faulty methods of packing egg In
cases and atowing the cases In the
car. Four meetings held recently in
Iowa were attended by over 100
practical shippers who send cars
weekly, at least, to eastern markets
and who expressed great interest In
the methods which the department
has worked out for the conservation
ot this valuable foodstuff. They and
many others have found the depart
ment's folder, "How to Load Cars of
Eggs," of assistance. Copies of this
folder can be had by writing to the
Bureau of Chemistry, United State
Department of Agriculture, Wash

In 1802 the country had an In
come tax with a fixed rate of 3 per
cent on nil Inonmes between $600
mid $10,000 and a fixed rate of 5
per cent on Income In exceos of $10,
000. In 1864 this had been increased
to a rute of 5 ppr cent on Incomes
bptween $600 and $5000; 7 per
cent between $5000 and $10,000 and
10 per cent on incomes over $10,000.
There were few great incomes then,
hut there was relatively less revenue
to raise. Uncle Sam In the present
war is Hpending every two months a
sum equal to the total cost of the
four years of civil war. There were
rt a nip taxes for almost every con
ceivable kind of husliiPRs transaction,
while practically all products were
taxed. Any drafted man could escape
service by producing a substitute, or
by paying $300, another form of
revenue.
Tho Welbinil Canal
The Wellnnd canal, in Canada,

FallH and connects Lakes Erie and
Ontario. It is 27 miles long, was
