and lu tuxes he thot Hier waztit. no
barme in fonzen with sueb entiers
jeat fur wuust fur to git In taxes.
Rut law ui« when be red in the
pappurs that the legislater waz a pi'in
lip moar expetieeys Ilian Maekkonul
ever tbot ov, it kinder made him feele
a* iho populists and demykrats wa/.ent
enny U-tler Hiuii guide bugs und purty
aoone lie Jest dide of on aekount ov a
broaken barte fur he tbot if populist«
«n ient lie trusted then nobody cud

Ho me a widiter and them tuxes must
Now llie pappurs alius the/.« lingers
534,547 dollars ov expenceys fur the
last legislator and 498,277 dollurs fur
Maokkouuls last extrawgint sit ov

4500 dollars ov a misstxk that I waz
told the pappurs made in flggnmi out
the expencyes ov Hie guvvernus ophls
when Maekkonul wa/ guvvernur Hie
pappurs sed 502,777 hut I say that
496,277 Is neerer rile.
Now Jane, thaïs my yungest gurl by
my furst busbuud, she gos too skool
down to the skiMil bous on Tammauv,
and alles a site on Aggers, she sez the
last legislator made 30,270 dollars more
•xpeuoeya than the other one aud she
Aggered It out by the Aggers ahe seene
In the pappurs. Fur the land ov
livin! How can Mlaster Alfurd looke
ouest peepul in the las and say that
the totetul savin by bis leggistaler waz
150,000 dollurs or more, and him the
apeeker at I hat. Well Jonn uzed to
nay. John did, thut you oouldent he
leeve uo demykrat no bow, und John
waz neerely alluz rile, John waz, and
partiokerler when he sed he hooped
tlie Lord would furgiv him fur toozeu
too git lo taxes. Now, Mr. Tki.i.ek
man, Jane sez that the puppurs sez
there uint so much proppurty in Idaho
aa there waa aud that the vallewashun
ov the atate haa fell of ui onto 5,000,000
dollars sens the last golde bug leggls
later met now if Jane Is rite It seems
too me that alios in that the expeucys
was no bier than they waz befor, then,
the taxes must be bier ton raze the
same amount ov expencyes; hut when
the ex pen eyes is 30,270 dollurs moar;
für the land ov the livin! cant a horn
tdyut see that taxes will Is» kleer up
too the last notch. Tuxes ' must be
bier they cant help hut lie. Im« shore
Ide hav In sei tbe rone knw fur the
taxes this y ere and let her brindul
yerelln liepher go with her too make
op fur my part ov the 36.270 dollurs
extry. John he sold the old brokkeu
back ntiur last yere and that paid the
•eeeasur hut then there w'uzent no
extry then on ackkount ov fonzen for
retomie and ekonnumy and lo tuxes.
But the last leggtslater dun won
thing that shode It did have a llttel
aparke ov seua left, they give over 30,
000 dolla's moar to the Insane assilum
than enny body ever give befor. That
plaa must be kep up or els we wont
have no plus fur peepel loo go too that
git crazy a thinkin how thay ca i raze
lotaxe«. Aud lur the land ov tbe
Itvln! what rezun Is there fur so much
more expeneye. around the penny
tenaliery iluiii Hier- yoused to be?.
The leggixlater must a tbot that liekos
taxes was lo every one would go to
ataellu ton save what wazent wanted
für tue lo taxes. And, sakes alive!
bow Jonus, tout wus tny lust husband
befor John, would a raved about kut
ten down I he inuntiy that wus wanted
by the old komrads at the Soigurs
Home. Jonus waz mltey set in his
mind atsMit treeien the old soigurs fare
be waz. I waz a lonklo at Ids old U.
A. B. kots with the sieve pinned up
tbat he dldent ha 'e no yoiisc fur, seeln
that be lost Ids arm at Five Forks, ez
1 say, I waz a look in at that this
morntu aud aez I Its better Jonus is
go.» than too bee a livin in a time
when tbe state has too take the old
aolgere peuahuua too ruu the home
with jeat für too keep taxes lo. Ide
rather give roues suekliu eaf with the
yeurelln than to a had the old soigurs
treated tbat way.
Now Ive got to kloa fur Janes goin
