The seeding of spring wheat is now nbout completed and wo learn that the averngo Is considerably greater than hif.tyeor.

Speaking of the new dog Jaw, the St. Louis Chronicle says: The money collected from dog owners will be held In tho county treasury of each county, or in township treasury where tlioro aro township organizations, as a fund fmiti which to make good to sheep owners their losses from the depredations of dugs. Should tho dogs of any coun ty fall to destroy enough sheep to ab sorb the fund collected annually, the surplus will be paid into the public school fund of the county. This ion turo of poll tax is for tho support of schools in comities where dogs nro plenty uud sheep are scarce counties which aro Invariably those in which tho necessity for schools is greatest. Many largo dog proprietors tiro dostltuto of taxablo property, and a dog ownor will add largely to tho school revenues. There aro no data for estimating tho number of dogs in tho State and tho probable future cost of scouring their existence, According to the Auditor's report tho number of sheop is 1,430,000, valued at ab;"jt 81 per head. Assum ing ono dog to oyery ten sheep, which Is about'.3no to every fifteen of popula tion certainly not an exaggerated es timate when tho insuperable proclivi ty to dogs In certain sections is remem bered tho sheep Insurance fund will amount annually to some $200,000.
