ADVERTISING RATES ON APPLICATION TREAT MINING FAIRLY In connection with the hope for an early mining revival, it should be constantly kept in mind that fair legislative treatment is essential to mining recovery. Reasonable regularity laws and reasonable taxes can be great aids to bringing it back—oppresive laws and onerous taxation can keep it in the doldrums. The mining states should give every effort to helping the mines, in the interest of employment, industrial development and the general welfare. _ _ Qes.- 4 -What is the value of the land North of Shelby: 8W% of 9E^4 <>f Sec, 17; &hd WÎ4 A SE% of NE* Sec. 8, T. 33 1W?

Knowing nothing about farms and rural life, he obtained all the literature he could get about agriculture and crammed day and night, like a college boy preparing for examination.

He tried to recall a descrip tion of farm animals printed in the books on agriculture, but could not classify the species. The goat aim ply didn't fit In. Ashamed to display his Ignorance at headquarters, he telephoned to a friend, giving a description of the animal, and asked what it might be. "He had large, ead eyes, a strangely long beard, rough and unkempt hair, and his behind was bare," the appraiser explained. "Man, that wasn't an animal!'' his friend shouted back.
