To Decrease State Tax Levy.
The action of Gov. Cox in calling a special session of the legis
lature" to decrease the levy for state taxes is certain to meet with
the approval of people generally. It was the wise and the just
thing for him to do.
The assessors have completed their work and have made a large
increase in the amount of personal property returned for taxation.
With the increased duplicate, the state not needing more money,
the rate for state purposes should be cut.
Opponents of Gov. Cox will ascribe to him some ulterior motive
for this action, but the important thing is not why Gov. Cox is
asking the legislature to decrease the taxes, but that he is asking
that it be done. In our opinion it is mighty small business to de
nounce and condemn a man and say that his motives are bad, when
the thing he is doing is good, simply because he belongs to a differ
ent political party than we do. This is a narrow blind partisanship
which is a disgrace to this day and generation.
And further we do not believe that the people are going to get
very mad at Gov. Cox if he decreases the tax rate, even if it should
be proved that he was hoping to make political capital thereby.
But why not say that the reason'the Governor is doing this is be
cause it is right, at least until we find out differently.
Street Paving1 Impractical.
THe suggestion to pave the streets of the business section of
Hillsboro seems to us unwise and impractical at this time.
In our opinion before any steps are taken towards having
paved streets in Hillsboro we should have a municipal sewerage
The question of the disposal of sewerage is already a big prob
lem in Hillsboro, and each year it will be more troublesome. Cess
pools are scattered all over the town aud there is hardly a branch
running out of the town that does not carry sewerage.
Toilets in homes and business houses are increasing in num
ber each year. Cess pools soon fill up and complaints are contin
ually being made by people residing in neighborhoods where they
are located. The streams in which the cess pools empty are fre
quently foul smelling and cause discomfort to people who live near
them or must pass over or near them. As the number of toilets
increase and the cess pools have been in use longer the conditions
will become worse. Such condititions are dangerous to the health
of the people of a town. It will only be a matter of a few years
before the local board of health or the. State board of health will
require many cess pools to be closed and order that sewerage shall
not be dumped in open streams, and thus make absolutely neces
sary a municipal sewerage system.
When that happens, if Hillsboro has paved streets, it will
mean that the paved streets will have to be torn up to put in the
sewers. This could be done only at an enormous cost, and in our
opinion, it would be a great waste of money to pave, the streets
of Hillsboro before we have a sewerage system.
Further, in our opinion, Hillsboro needs a sewerage system
much worse than paved streets.
Close Your Store One Afternoon Each Week.
Most of the merchants of Greenfield have agreed to close their
stores Wednesday afternoon of each week during July and August.
Would it not be an excellent thing for the merchants and manu
facturers of Hlllsboro to give thsir employees ay afternoon off 'each
week during July and August ? "
July and August are the two dullest months of1 the year, also
they are the two hottest and hardest on people who have to work.
For the stores of Hillsboro to close one afternoon each week would
give the employers and employees an opportunity for rest and rec
reation on some day other than Sunday. As soon as the people
became accustomed to the change it would seldom inconvenience
them. If all of the merchants in a particular line would close, each
one would do just as much business in five days and a half as he
now does in six.
The custom of closing a half day each week duringthe summer
months has been in effect in the stores in the large cities for a
number of years and has proved to be a wise policy. While Satur
day afternoon is the time always chosen in the cities for closing,
this would not be practical in Hillsboro, as Saturday is usuallyfthe
busiest day for our merchants. There is, however, some afternoon
which would be practical and the business men should get together
and agree upon a time for closing.
Once this custom is inaugurated we believe that everyonejwill
soon realize that it is a sensible policy and would not consider re
turning to the present plan of requiring the clerks to stand around
in the stores every afternoon during the 'extremely hot weather
waiting for customers who do not come. It is the wise and humane
thing to do.
When a girl marries she not only takes the man's name but
every thing else he has.
The batting average of a paragrapher is less than that of the
weakest hitting pitcher. '
Col. Roosevelt losing his voice disproves the old theory about
disease always attacking the weakest spot.
The old custom of writing Mr.
it should be written Mrs. and Mr., as the most important onefihould
always be named first.
There should be more jobs for which the. only qualification
needed is a strong back, sothat every one could' have the kind of
work for which he is fitted.
While we are opposed to gambling we woud lay a small bet
that Col. Roosevelt will have recovered his voice by the time he
land in New York. '

Sont er the
IT was in August that my friend,
the maharajah of T sent me
a delightful Invitation to join him
In a bear-shooting expedition to
Kashmir. He also Included in his
invitation my wifo, who alrendy could
boast some experience In Indian sport,
though she had never as yet had the
luck to include a bear among her tro
phies. It is needless to say we both
accepted this tempting offer, and set
to work at once to prepare our outfit.
My kit consisted of khaki shorts,
shooting Bhlrts with short sleeves, and
special canvas boots with thick, pliable
soles these latter had broad welts
with eyelet holes, to enable the shi
kari to lace on the graBs soles which,
though only lasting a day, w ere very
useful when damped to prevent slip
ping and also took chupplies, a san--dal
worn on a kind of White kid leather
sock. I armed myself with my 500
express and 12 bore shotgun, also my
450, with which I had shot tigers in
Bengal, writes "L. J." In Country Life.
My wife took with her a small, pow
erful express rifle, both feiven her by
the rajah. She was quite at home with
both weapons. The rajah also kindly
presented me with a fine 577 express,
as he did not seem to put much faith
in the guns I already possessed. The
party consisted of the rajah and his
two secretaries, Chunda Babu and
Chindamon, who proved something of
a character; there were also his me
chanic, Lee, and a large assortment
of shikaris and retainers; also, of
course, myself-and D., my wife. The
Rajah was a real good sportsman, and
we all started in the greatest spirits
from Rawal Pindl, our destination be
ing Shinagar, 200 miles from Pindi.
The servants and luggage were die-
patched in tongas by road, while we
and the rajah followed by motor to
Murree. The rest of the way we did
by tongas.
His First Black Bear.
The valley we had chosen for our
central camp was called Chudrapool,
off the Sind Valley, and we arrived
there In due time. After establishing
the camp we took to the mountains,
where the beaters soon had a bear up.
It was decided that the most likely
place for the bear to break was the
center nullah, so D. and I were sta
tioned there, Lee" and the rajah going
to the left and right in case the animal
broke across the next nullah. Where
my wife and I were sitting the Jungle
was very thick, and we should be un
able to see' the bear till he was right
on us if he came from where the shi
karis expected. Under these circum
stances I thought it advisable to put
D. a little way up a' tree. Having
fixed her up comfortably, I sat Just
below, and the beat began. D. was
to have first shot. Presently, about
fifty yards away, I caught eight of a
piece of black moving up towards us
slowly. It was a bear, right enough,
and a big one, too. On he came, and
then disappeared in thick jungle, to
appear again not ten yards away from
us. I signaled to D. to shoot, expect
ing to see him roll over, but there
came no shot from D. Then I waited
till ho was seven yards from me, and
he did look a monster. I could not
understand why D. did not shoot, and
thought seven yards was close enough
to be pleasant As I raised my rifle he
saw me, but too late; he had got my
577 bullet behind his ear, and over he
went. As he rolled over I flred again,
and hit blm within an inch of the first
bullet Then, for the first time, it
seemed, D. Baw him as he was rolling
down to the bottom of the nullah, and
gave him a bullet for luck. So I got
my first bear, and he was a big one,
measuring six feet five inches. We
skinned him and sent off his skin to
Srinagar. We then moyed across to
thotnext nullah, and, while the beat
waa getting ready, had tiffin. This was
an awkward nullah to beat satisfac
torily with the number of beaters wo
bad that day, two hundred odd. It
was finally arranged that the men
should divide, one lot beating up
toward us, but at right angles, 1. e.,
along the elde of the nullah. Not a
good arrangement, as it turned out.
We stationed ourselves, Lob on tho
left,.D. and the rajah together, as the
jungle was too thick for her to be
alone; then myself, about a hundred
yards to the right Fifty yards beyond
me we staUqned a shikari with a shot
gun to act m "atop," i. ., if he saw
t& bear coming towards him It meant
the txtr waa ouUM our lino aid
would get through on our right, bo he
had Instructions to Are, but on no con
sideration to hit the bear, but to scare
him back into the beat again.
"Stop" Makes Blunder.
Very Boon the beat began, and
shouts of "Wliarlu" filled tho air. It
was silence for a space, and then a
shot was flred on my right, following
the "woof-woof of a bear as he daBhed
down towards the beaters. The fool
of a "stop" had fired at the animal and
hit him with the shotgun. There was
sure to be trouble, so I got up and ran
down through the jungle In the direc
tion Hip bear had gone. But quick as
1 was, I was too late. The wounded
bear had met a beater on his way
down and had mauled him badly, tak
ing most of his face away and clawing
him severely about the body. The poor
lellow looked done for; there was no
time to stop, and I rushed on, to find
the bear mauling another man. On
seeing me he left the man and charged
full at me. I have never seen such a
sight as he looked as he came toward
me, covered with blood, his eyes glar
ing and red, and a terrible wound in
his side. I let him get close up to
mo, and then gave him the 577 be
tween the eyes.
Over he went, and did not move
again. Then the head shikari, with
great presence of mind and pluck,
came from behind a bush, stalked the
dead bear carefully, and at two yards
fired, but unfortunately missed, even
at that range. He would nqt believe
it was really dea'd, and kept saying,
"Kulba dhar, sahib," and was not con
vinced till I sat on its head. Just
then the rajah came puffing through
the Jungle, thinking I was still In my
place, yelling to me to bring him more
cartridges. The bear measured six
feet seven Inches.
The next thing was to attend to the
unfortunate beaters. The worst case
we sent off at once to tho hospital at
Srinagar, where the other followed
next day, after being doctored by us
in camp. I am glad to say we heard
later that both poor fellows recov
ered. Later we had many good bear hunts,
though without any particular Inci
dents, and managed to bag a fair num
ber of animals, D. accounting for a
creditable share.' We also incidentally
managed to get a considerable amount
of other game, such as muek-deer,
scrow and pig, besides any amount of
duck and snipe shooting. Our host
had been most kind and hospitable,
given us tho time of our lives, and we
were most sorry to part company In
November, when we returned to Cal

The twenty-fifth birthday of the Eif
fel tower was celebrated a few days
ago. The great Iron structure, nearly
1,000 feet high, has now become an
accepted landmark of Paris; but
when It was first erected there was
a storm of protests from such well
known names In the world of art as
Gounod, Le Conte, de Lisle, Coppee,
Bonnat and de Maupassant, who
elgned a petition against It
The tower is extraordinarily light
for its size. For many years the belief
was persistent that ono fine morning
it would be found leveled to the
ground. The result is that the Champ
de Mars district of Paris has only re
cently been really laid out for build
ing purposes, the people having for
gotten their fears now, and belnjj
ready to live in the shadow of the
War as a Home-Maker.
