following reiMitt which was adopted.
Mr. Vhairman At our committee to

fully report that from the settlements here-
tofre had with the several clerks in the
uffTerent olllces and rum partial examln
tioos made, your committee to settle with
county ollicers, uwould moht resiiectfully
report that they find that the register of
fees required ly statute, (page u.j sec. .Mj
to be kpt from day to day, as by said law
contemplated Is not kept, but that said
roister of fees is made up half yearly
from tiles of papers, diA'kets and memorau
d i requiring a great amount of research
and labor, which. In our opinion, can lie
obviated by a strict compliance with the
It has further come to our knowledge
that a larie amount of fees received for
certified copies of papers and proceedings
had In the several courts nave not in a sin
le Instance been reported among the earn
itiL's. nor receipts of said olllcera as re
iiuired by law, and the opinion of the
cotintv attornev herewith attached
Your committee further flntl that it Is
the practice of some of the ollicers to con
vert the witness fees by them received ioto
their own ixu kets, through the medium of
a so called power ol attorney, insieHU oi in
to the county treasury as tin law directs In
case they are not claimed by wltueses at
the expiration or ttieir term oi otuce. i uey
thereby necessarily become attorneys for
thousands of people In the. collection of
fees as well as Supreme Court Judges in
construing the statute to enrich themselves
at the exjiense of the county.
Your committee would recommend that
some means be devised at this meeting of
the b wrJ whereby our salaried clerks and
all others In their employ can be relieved
from these arduous self lmKeed duties.
Io view of th facts set forth above your
committee would recommend that the said
clerks oe, anl are hereby instructed,
by this board that a strict compliance with
the law, both In the manner of keeping
the register of fees and the matter of fees
as earned above will be exacted by this
board, and In case of refusal or neglect on
their part to comply with the above rea
sonable request, that do further salary, fee,
emolument, perquisite or perdlem of any
nature or kind will be paid to them by con
ent or approval of this board.
To the Committee to $dtU vtih County Oft
ttn, Gxsixemex: You have propound
Ad to me tUa following enquiries, anil de
sire an answer thereto: ...
"Should the circuit and county clerks
charge themselves for the fee received
f,ir mildnir records ill cases taken to the
higher courts, and rexrt the same to the
county" and aiso. -biioiuo um
clerk charge bluiself for certitied copies of
wills and other documents used to scud to
other states v"
My answer, without nlng y reasons
therefore in detail, that in both litani es
such fees or emoluments siiouiu oe repon
ed to the county board, and of course they
should charge themselves wlih such fees
or costs when received. This latter fol.
lows as a matter of course from their be
log bound to report them to tue uoaiu.

The writer tnkt-s itn imaginary horse called
''Dtui'' ami lupins hit diitftions hy saying:
!SiiiMist now ymi Kiniiil at Don's near
klioiilili-r, ami tiikin;; hnlilof tho curb reins at
tint withers, give a steaily, p-ntlti pull. Don
nmv atteintit to liat k. but you must check
thii. inclination with the voice. The treiwura
f the curb chain will soon iiinko him brincj
lowii his heml, oeii his mouth, ami arch his
mrk. As .soon ns ho ilo.'s tiiis, put ami caress
him, ami in a sccnml or two releaso tho rein
mill let him hnve his heml a moment to rest.
Try th" Minw thing again ami again, very
gruilually liivpinj; tho neck urchetl a hit
lunger eiii-h time, but miir .so long; asto
tempt him to resist, which ho will ilo by
pulling on tho bit, or throwinji up his head,
or bucking.
So long as he cliinups the bit ami seems
comfortable, keep 011 at this drill for, say,
aliout half an hour a tiny. In a week or two
you will find that lion will arch his neck at
the slightest indication of the bit, awl keep
it arched for a long timo without fatigue.
When ho does this easily, try tho muiio thing
for a few days mounted and standing. And
later still go through the exercise for a week
or two while Don is walking. Never try to
force his mouth; coax him with hand and
voice, anil never keep him ut it so long as to
tire him so that ho will hang on the curb,
for this will surely hpoil his mouth.
Aftor some weeks you wiJl lind that Don
will keep his neck arched, his mouth ojien,
anil a light hold of the bits at any gait. This
is what we call "in hand." At first you
had lietter alternate lietween keeping him "in
hand" and letting him carry his head his
own way, so as not to weary him too much.
And if your hands are light, and you do not
jerk or worry him, yon will Ik surprised to
see what a soft month Don is acquiring The
same thing can now lie atvompli.shed with tho
snatllo-bit, but iu lieu of a steady pull you
may have to give little gentle jerks on tha
rein till Don iciis his mouth and arches hia
nec It.
The first picture shows Tatrtx-lus, the
writer's favorite old saddle horse, "ambling
along at a five-mile gait." A good fast
walk is the liest gait, for a long l ido. In the
picture you see the proper position of both
horse ami rider.
In the second illustration a horse is being
put through a fancy step colled "the croup
atle," a sort of horso polka, iKTliaps. In tha
croupade the intelligent animal gives a
spring, nt tho same tinio drawing his feet up
in tho manner shown. A horse, in his way,
has as much sense as a man, and can bo
taught many wonderful things. Talk to
your horsi as you would to ieople, and in
a little w hile, with practice, they will under
stand you well. Alw ays be kind anil patient
with them, and you will lie astonished to
find how much they know.
One tiling more. Donl cut off a horse's
fine flowing tail in the hideous style shown
in the picture. It is an Knglish fashion, as
cruel as it is ugly. Nothing is more un
pleasant to look at than that horrible stump
sticking out there.
A Mean Thing to Io.
Aliout the meanest thing that lioys and
girls can do is to ma 'to fun of their sisters
when they havo company. I don t want to
seo any ol such w ont none, nen 1
see boys and girls going almiit the house

that will make sister feel uncomfortable I

a lot of young bears who are doing their best
to worry and plague those who love them.
I like a brute Uur fur letter titan I like a

than to be selfish and cruel. It pays to be
ladylike and gentlemanly. We cant possibly
begin too early 111 life to mak ladies and
gentlemen out of ourselves. Uncle Mark.
