The statewide tick eradication law passed by the Mississippi Legislature during its recent ses sion wins distinguished mention and praise from Secretary Hons ton, of tbe Federal Department of Agriculture. In a statement is sued last Saturday, that official points out that the new Mississip pi law is the first of its kind to be enacted in the South. Upon the basis of the results attained during the tick eradication fight by coun ties, the secretary declares that "the entire state of Mississippi should be out of quarautine by the end of 1917» or at the latest by tbe The law does not end of 1918. become effective until january * Tbe date of Mississippi's 1917 total release from tick quarantine bondage depends in part upon the effectiveness of tbe law's enforce meat. Mississippi thus is "setting the pace" for cattle tick infested states iu the South, and fairly deserves all tbe credit and glory and profit therefor. Her tick eradication fight has been a long and difficult I At tbe outset the cattle one. dipping pioneers and prophets eu countered wide and bitter opposi tion. Even in agriculturally pro gressive counties, farmers who bad accepted the diversification doc trine cheerfully and readily some times resented compulsory "dip . , , dynamited again. Ihe resort t0 j obstructive tactics delayed the I campaign and increased its cost. But finally patience and persist , . j . r, began to be rewarded. Conn ty after couoty joined more or less | whole-heartedly in tbe war upon the tick; tbe quarantines began to come ofl, couuty by county, and fine cattle began to come in. To day a majority of tbe Mississippi I counties, we believe, are tick-free and the good results in the way of tangible profits are plainly seen. Euactment of the statewide law as an encroachment upon j Dipping ping their "personal rights. vats were dynamited, rebuilt, and ence follows logically. Leuisiana, we regret to say, is yet a great way behind tbe neigh bor state iu this matter of tick eradication, though its need here is as great as in Mississippi. The Louisiana campaign is, however, well under way and Mississippi's fine example and successful expe rieuce ought to prove very helpful to our own campaigners against the cattle tick.—Times-Picayune. Mississippi bolds a unique place j among her sister states of the I south. It furnished tbe only Con federate president, and was the I first of the southern states to throw off carpetbag rule, in framing a constitution which eliminated ignorance from tbe It led I oils and yet stood the test of tbe I Federal courts. It is now supply ing fourteen political leaders of other states—native Mississippians J who are recognized as second to □ one in prominence in tbeir adopt ed homes. And now it is tbe first to make a state-wide campaign against a pest which has always I crippled tbe south industrially. fbese truths are giveu only frpm memory as this comment is writ tru. There are other things in which this great state—financially I one of tbe poorest in tbe union, yet second to none in wbat it has| c suffer as long as the present meth-1 od of assessing property continues, It is nothing to tbe conscienceless taxpayer to give in his pj^perty to the assessor at a ridiculously low figure, (hereby escaping the real burden ol maintaining the govern ment. But to the man who values bis oath tbe burdeo falls especially done for the sisterhood of states— has led tbe south. Tbe honest man will have to bard. Not only does be pay double tbe amount of that paid by bis dishoue&t neighbors, but must also bear a double part of tbe increase of levy necessary because of tbeir shortcomings. A few days ago such a man was approached by tbe assessor and asked to assess bis property. He bad owned the land three years, aud recently was offered twice I what be paid for it. Not desiring to sell, be refused the offer, ht , j had been assessing the land ai what it cost him, but after receiv ing the offer he felt io honor bound to increase it to what be had been ! offered. I fa alf, and many a conscience would be relieved. But under preseot conditions a premium is placed on two-thirds of its value. Suppose every taxpayer was at honest as this man, the assessed value of property would be double what it is now; tbe county levy lying and dishonesty, told that no one is "expected assess his property at more than If be can We are to squeeze it down to one third be is considered a shrewd business man. The only hope that tbe truthful property owner has is that tbe board of supervisors might see that he is assessed far above bis neigh bors and reduce bis assessment.
