Whither Will He FlyP
tax-paying citizen of Chicago,
J. Ii. Francis, whose assessable
personal property is rated 310,215 by
the assessors, has appended to his
schedule a sworn statement in the shape
of a declaration that if the assessors do
not assess the possessions of the "miser
able, lying, Belfish codfish aristocracy
and millionaires of Chicago" on the
same baelB, he will "leave Chicago in
supreme disgust and probably spend
the remainder of his life among a more
civilised people, where corruption Ib
not known."
It would be hard to imagine a more
hopeless attempt to escape the injustice
of unequal taxation. Whither would
the Chlcagoan flee in his "supreme
disgust New York, with 87,500,000,
000 "sworn off," certainly is not more
successful than Chicago in rounding up
the millionaires for the assesment of
personal property. And where is the
large city which can boast of equal and
just taxation?
Cowardice is no remedy for the evil
of unjust taxation, nor for any other
public evil. If Mr. Francis really
wishes to accomplish anything he will
stay at home where he is known, opd
presumably has soifie influence, and
help the assessors of that city, who
have recently shown a commendable
diligence in moving ou she tax-dodging
millionaires of Chicago.
We may add that for New York and
for other cities the remedy for the
assessment injustice and for #11 other
municipal evils lies in the hands of the
citizens. They will always have as
good a government as they deserve.—

The interesting aspect of the transit
of William Waldorf ABtor is its likely
influence on others of our so-called
moneyed aristocracy. Already the re
port comes that Anthony J. Drexel, of
Philadelphia will annul his rights of
American citizenship and take the
British oath. There are very likely to
be others, so that we shall 064s a" pretty
little hegira of rich men. But why
shouldn't they go If they have ceased
to be American in spirit, what good
American could wish to keep them
here? The presence of un-American
Americans has been one of the threats
In our body politic. In a small way, it
is a purification process which seems
about to set in. But it won't go far,
because Americans, even those who
have inherited great wealth, know very
well that In England, even as Bworn
subjects, their social standing is far
from being at the top. It is Baid that
there are seventy-four classes of British
subjects who outrank William Waldorf
Astor. Still, there is a counter con
sideration. We should say, offhand,
that there are more classes than that
who outrank him In Amerloa.—Buf

Water Food and Salt Supply.
(By h. I.. Vincent.}
Uy this I mean the attention we give
our dairies during the heated period.
Simply turning the herd to pasture
twice a day and milking at a regular
period is not all that Is implied by the
word "Care."
Are you sure your cows have all the
fresh water they will drink Springs
need cleaning out often. If they are
neglected, a dirty scum often gathers
upon the surface and the water is not
pure. If the source of supply is a pond
It is doubly essential that care be used.
The weedB and bogs should be kept
well scraped out, so that there may be
as deep a body of water as possible and
as sucb reservoirs quickly dry up in
time of drouth unless tbey be fed by
springs tbey must not be forgotten or
soon the milk supply will be shortened.
Cows need more water than many of
us think. They must have it, or we
suffer the consequences.
The feed supply muBt also be main
tained. When running at pasture, cat
tle will soon exhaust a large range.
There may be grass enough, but they
have trodden upon it as they went
along, and the next time they come
that way they will pass over large
quantities of good feed. I like the
plan of having two pasture lots for this
reason. After running upon one field
for, say, a week, 1 turn my eowa into
another field. There the feed seems
much fresiier, and-it is, in.taiBt. .The
Again, did you ever try it to see hpw
much salt your cows will consume, if
they get it rf not, you would be sur
prised upon making the test. Under
the basement of my barn, where the
cows go in and out to be milked, I have
nailed aboard along the side of one of
the sills forming along box open at the
top. In this I intend to keep salt, so
that my cows can have it all the time.
They almost always stop to take a bite
on the way in or out. They are health
ier for it, and I am Bure it adds to the
quantity of milk produced.
Shade is an essential to the comfort
ot stock. In the heat,of the day tbey
spend many hours resting under.the
trees. Of late years, the horse fly has
made life a burden anywhere unless we
use means to keep it away. Some good
preparations are now on the market,
and we can ourselves mix oils and
certain acids very cheaply so that we
are able to do away with a great aeaJ
of the misery which would otherwise
be caused by the flies.

Dairy Notes. V-S
Mr. .U. JJ. Gurler, the well-known
Illinois dairyman, who sells milk in
Chicago at 12 cents a quart, on a scale
that requires eighteen men to milk the
cows in his herd, will make an exhibit
of his methods of handling a dairy farm
at the Paris Exposition next year.
Cattle condemned under the laws of
Illinois in the tuberculin tests now be
ing made there are paid for in whole or
in part, according to the condition of
the cattle. The cattle are appraised at
from 840 to $75 per head to begin with,
the latter figure being the maximum.
Full compensation is made it cattle are
condemned that upon postmortem ex
amination show no signs of tuber
culosis. If they have been affected
by the disease for a year or lesB 75 per
cent of the appraised value is paid if
the disease has been in progress for a
year and not to exceed two years, 50
per cent of the appraised value is paid,
and if the disease has been prevailing
for more than two years nothing is
paid, it being held that sucb cattle
have no value.
They Consider Tuberculosis.
A convention of physicians has been
held lately, in (Chicago, for the purpose
of considering the subject of a sanitary
milk supply, and especially the adoption
of methodH for preventing the sale of
milk from herds infected with tubercu
losis, and for devising some practical
method for putting in operation a sys
tematic system of examination of
dairy oattle.
Legislation will be needed providing
for partial payment to owners of cattle
which may be condemned. Five thou
sand dollars was provided by the last
legislature of Illinois for this purpose,
which will l'urnfsh partial indemnity to
owners of sucb cattle as are
condemned,
while the beat methods for future work
are being devisod,
»wwj. ^r*rpw!
Among scientific authorities the
chance for communicating this disease
in the milk of infected cows has been
considered remote, but the opposite
view seemed to prevail among the
members of the medical profession at
the late congress of specialists in Ber
lin and much interest was manifested
in the meeting of physicians in Chi
cago.
A Nice, ObllfflnK Man.
Whllo good many of tho funny sto
ries of -'She asked me to hold the ba
by" have been written and the subject
consequently Is somewhat frayed, still
tho scene that occurred In Madison
square one night was funny. A jovial
looking old gentleman was sitting on
a bench beside a portly, well dressed
woman who had a baby In her arms.
The two got in conversation hy tho old
gentleman remarking, "How well the
baby behaves," for the little thing lay
and slept peacefully wrapped In nu
merous veilings.
Presently the woman said she was
going over to Fourth avonuo to buy a
bottle of milk and requested the old
man to hold the baby. "Why, certain
ly," said he. "I've been a father and
grandfather to so many that I know
how to handle them." The woman
went away and didn't come back. The
old gentleman became nervous, but as
the baby still slept on peacefully be
waited until long past his own bed
time for the mother to return.
It was nearly midnight when te
walked Into the police station and
handed over the bundle. Then he bare
ly escaped arrest for trying to hoax
the sergeant when the wrappings were
thrown aside and there was disclosed
a papier mache doll, one of those
Jointed tilings from Paris which ad
mirably reproduce an appearance of
life.—New York News.
He Held on to HI. Knife.
On the afternoon of June 1, 1872, an
old painter named William UcOnl
lough while painting the bridge above
the fiWls between the first and second
Sister Islands fell Into the rapids. In
stantly he was swept furiously toward
the cataract, but whirled Into, lerier
wares so that he struck against and
seized a rock not far above the brink.
Hundreds quickly gathered on the
shore and watched, all eager to help,
but ignorant what to do. Among them
was Thomas Oonroy, who secured a
coll of rope, fastened one end to a tree
on shore and with the other end in his
hand waded out as far as be could and
occasionally swam, the water being
from 18 Inches to six feet deep.
lie aimed far up stream to allow for
the power of the current and at last
with great difficulty reached tho unfor
tunate painter and bound him to him
self with the rope. They were swept
off their feet several times on the way
back to shore, but the rope had been
firmly fastened, and tbey finally landed
safely. When they reached shove. It

having held It during the three hours
he had been on the brink of the falls.—
clean. How the cattle do enjoy the
change! And there is no question but
thatihey do much better ban when
confined in the same pasture all the
time.

As you are always glad to bear about
baunted houses In Ireland, writes a
correspondent, qany I add a. curious
story wltb regard to the borne of tbo
late Irish loader? Tbe story is made
more credible by the fact that there
was something In the late Obarles
Stewart ParneU's majestic isolation
which reminded one strangely of the
gloomy grandeur of the mountains sur
rounding his home. In the square en*
trance ball there is a billiard table, and
the story is that the gbosts of tbe old
house amuse themselves In this spot
after nightfall. No matter how the
billiard balls are left upon the cloth at
the time the household retires, tbey
will be found In a different position the
next morning.—M. A. P.

On one of Landseer's early visits to
Scotland the great painter stopped at
a village and took a great deal of no
tice of the dogs, Jotting down rapid
sketches of them on a piece of paper.
Next day, on resuming bis jourbey, he
was horrified to tlnd dogs suspended
from trees in all directions, or drown
ing In the rivers, wltb stones around
their necks. He stopped a weeping
urchin, who was hurrying off with a
pet pup In bis arms, and learned to his
dismay that he was supposed to.be an
excise officer who was taking notes (t
all the dogs he saw In order to prose
cute the owners for unpaid taxes.
Then lie Didn't Bat.
An English merchant was invited by
a Chinaman to dine with him. Neither
could speak tbe other's language, and
a conversation was carried on by
means of gesticulations and signs.
Among the dt&es was one which seem
ed very savory. The Englishman had
an idea it was duck, but to make cer
tain be pointed to the dish and pleas
antly insinuated, "Quack, quack!"
The Chinaman wugged his head and
said: "No-ey, no-ey! Bow-wow-wow!"
