ANENT THE CASH
VALUE ASSESSMENT.
Attorney General Declares Assessor
Must Exercise Good Judgment.—
Must Not Become Excited in His
Efforts to Obey the Letter Of the
Law.
Attorney General D. C. McDougall
is being solicited from every part of
the state for his views of the dash
value assessment plan. His reply,
heretofore, to all ha® been, "It is my
business only to tell whiait the law is,
that it ils the business of the assessor
to enforce Ihig law, and must arrive
at his own plan for so doing.''
At Ploeatello, recently, however, he
entered more fully into the matter
as follows:
''It is up to the county assessors
to use their best judgment in. fix
ing the value for assessment purposes
of ail lundis. If they will not go too
far in the matter, but raise values all
along the lime to something closer
the real value of property, it will
work out excellently.''
Upon being asked relative to this
same matter here, the attorney gen
eral declared that what he meant by
assessors not going too far, wias that
they should not become excited in
the general discussion of the increas
ed valuation and go beyond reasonu
"What I meant,'' declared the at
torney general, "was that assessors
should not get hysterical upon the
subject. For instance, should it be
ascertained that some man, because
of a belief in the speculative value
of a certain) piece of land should be
holding It for sale at, say, $100 an
acre with no offers at such a price,
it wouldbe manifestly unfair to assess
such property at $100 am acre, for it
is evident that this is more than
the actual cash value.
"Also,'' lie con t if. iued, "it may hap
pen that even when sales are made
at a certain price,this, sale priçe may
not represent the actual cash value.
There may be some unnatural reason
why the price paid should be either
too high or too low; it might be that
the purchaser, for some reason, was
oicinipeUed to buy and was therefore
compelledl to pay more than the prop
erty was rc.Li.ly worth, or it may be
that, the owner was forced for some
reason to soil and thait the price he
accepted wias less than the real value
"Whiait the assessors will have to
do''' he finally declared, "is to -go out
and use their very best judgment *as
men familiar with conditions and will
values, and fix such a value as in
their judgment represents the real,
actual cash value of the property.
This is their 'business and this is the
duty imposed upon them by the law
and so long as they perform this du
ty as best they can nothing more can
be expected of them. The courts
have uniformly held that this is an
exclusive duty that they have to per
form and that *i.o one can interfere
with them. It has even fb.en held
that where the county commissioners,
or board of equalizatio has attempted
to instruct assessors to assess cer
tain property at a certain- valuation,
the sssenscr was justified in refus
ing to place such value upon the
property, though he would, of course,
be required to assess It along with
other property. The only power the
board of equalization would have
would be to equalize the value as be
tween that property a*, d other prop
erty in the county, and the only au
thority to enforce ttye laws against
assessors is just the same authority
tht any other citizen would luavi
against
tlii.it cf making complaint
such officer, and mo other.''
Tlie attorney general lias bien so
beseigcdl for legal advice since the
announcement of the state board of
equalization was made thait taxation
must procee. upon a full cash va'ue
basis that he has been compelled to
call a halt. He has received hundred
:f letters,the total amount!: g perhaps
into the thousands from all tximty öf
fleers from all parts of the state and
upon all sorts of questions. He has
issued notice that the attiri.ey to
whom all county officers must apply
for legal guidance is the con: ty at
tci-ney for the c-cunty. unless that oT
fleer should himself desire ad vice, in
which Cc.se he may apply to the at

dairy cows.
A sorghum dairy ration will in
crease the flow-of milk.
It will pay any farmer or dairyman
having more than three good cows to
buy a good hand separator.
The ideal ration for the dairy, cow
should include a mixture of grains,
or alfalfa bay and cut silage.
The cow's ration must be governed
by her ability to eat, digest and as
similate her food and convert it Into
milk.
If conditions in and about your cow
stable are bad, look out for a visit
from some member of the dairy and
food commission.
You cannot expect to get good fla
vored milk or butter if cows are kept
In a filthy stable and fed on poor, un
wholesome feed.
Heifers with their first calves are
nervous and can be induced to give
down their milk only by careful and
judicious treatment.
It is not advisable to return the calf
to a heifer after it has been weaned.
By doing eo a habit is formed that
will remain with the cow through life.
Ropy or stringy milk is a fermenta
tion and should not be confused with
garget. It develops after milk is
drawn and is caused by bacterial
growth.
Ilavè a regular stall for each cow,
put the tplxed feed in the trough be
fore opening the stable door; each one
will then go into her own stall and
can be haltered without confusion.
Skimmed milk, used pure, fresh and
warm from the separator can be
turned to almost as much profit as the
cream from the milk, which will great
ly incrqas? the net profits in dairy
ing.

Muskmelons.
There is a general impression that
muskmelons are of much better qual
ity when grown in sandy soils. Cer
tainly melons of very high quality are
produced in sections of the country
where the soil is very sandy and yet
It would be difficult to find better
cantaloupes than were produced this
year at State College, Pa., on Hagers
j town clay loam. The plants were
started in paper pots under glass and
transplanted to the open ground after
danger of frosts.

discovered that the common house fly
multiplies and thrives In the alfalfa
