The di rect tax system has outlived its usefulness for State needs and can be superseded or made nomi nal by the inheritance tax, aided by other sources of State Reve nue which can be fairly and equal ly collected, in the opinion of Gov K. F. Noel of Mississippi, who ad dressed the Governor's conference here today. Gov. Noel spoke to' the text: "The Inheritance Tax and State Comity." "Its incidental effect" said Governor Noel, referring to the in heritanee tax, 'through gradation according to kinship and progress ion as to amounts, inevitably tends to regulate wealth by fur nishing motives for distribution in sums that escape all or serious taxaton and by discouraging will to strangers or to collateral kin dred. If such taxation be made so onerous as to approximate con fiscation it would defeat its own purpose because those at whom it would defy aim. by change of residence and skillful and secret methods of evasion could and would altogether escape its bur dens. Governor Noel's address was devoted to an outline of condi tions in various states. He slid in part : "O.ir State Legislatures deter mine who can make wills; how they shall be made; what proper ty may be so disposed of; and who sliail and who shall not be beneficiaries. Along with this authority over property and persons, within its border, goes the unquestionable right of States to collect inheri tance taxes on all transfers of property, incident to death. Ac quisition of property by will or in heritanee under our government is neither a natural, nor a consti tutional right, but is a privilege, created and controlled by law. "All property or interests in property, transferred by death, or in contemplation of death is sub ject to taxation. If tangible property, then in the state where situated; and if in tangible property, such as mon ey on hand or on deposit, notes, stocks or bonds, in the slate con taining the domicile of the de cedent or in which such prop erty may have been technical lo cal situs, for instance, as to cor porate securities, stocks and bonds, the state granting the charter and in which record trans fern are to be made. "The Tax Laws of different states both as to classes of prop erty and of beneficiaries taxed jare widely variant resulting in oe- 11 beneficiaries are taxed in 22 ti:tt and only thoe that .ire Vexas crop notes Funis, Texas Leaf worms are reported eating the young fruit age put on the cotton since the rains. Weatherford The two local cotton vards have received to late 8.")!) bales of wagon cotton aud 1200 from railroads. Paris Harvesting the peanut crop was begun today, .j. w. Young, a well posted farmer says that the vield per acre will he better than last year but that the acreage is not as large. The aver age yield last year was twenty five bushels per acre. Gainesville Reports reaching Gainesville from Farmers resid ing in the western part of Cooke county bring informatoin th'at baf worms are doing damage to growing forage crops and cotton stalks, leaving the latter bare of foliage, a process which will in jure the late crop considerably The pests do not seem to be prev- alent in the cross timbers. Upon their appearance it was thought that they were army worms, but old timers say that they are leaf worms. Ennis Two years ago, J. A. Webb, a farmer near Alsdorf dis covered a peculiar looking stalk of cotton in his crop. It was dif ferent from the rest of his crop and he gathered the cotton from that stalk and picked the lint off of the seed by hand. Last year he planted those seed and gathered the cotton as before, getting seed enough to plant an acre this year. He has carried to the gin from' that acre 17C0 pounds of cotton, which made a 6G9 pound bale of fine lint. He has been offered a premium for seed from this cot ton. Plainview. According to the Government gauge, 1.02 inches of rain fell here Friday afternoon and night. This brings the total precipitation for 1911 up to 26' inches which is four inches above the average annual rainfall for the past ten years. The late feed crop will be doubled by this timely and general precipitation and it is sa'd collateral in, 16 states. "Among the states as to charges and exemptions there are wide di vergencies Thirteen' rtates ex empt wholly lineal beifvticiaries. In some of the other states these exemptions apply solely to hus band and wife. In alifomia the maximum charges against linenls range from. 1 per cent to 5 per cent and col laterals from 3 to 23 per cent. The maximum in a few other states is as high as 3 per cent for lineal and 15 per cent for collat eral, beneficiaries only. Kansas has both. A few states have fix ed charges as to collateral benefi ciaries. Ctah and Minnesota has the same exemption, jflO.OOO and the same charges to both classes of beneficiaries, that of I'tah be ing 3 per cent fixed and Mimics- sot a progressing from 1 1-2 per '. cut lo 5 per cent.

Crops are bet ter in the Plainview country than any time in the past sev eral years, perhaps in the history of agriculture in this section. It is feared that a large percentage of the crop here will be wasted on account of insufficient labor to gather them.
