From time to t'mc during the pat jrar the Mate Highway Hoard at Jcf ferron City ha Fent out notictF call ing nttention to that provision of the new road law which require hedge) fence along public road to b cut toi a height not exceeding five feet. It' will t.e Interesting to tho readers of! this miner to Vnow that a tent cafo wa made In the circuit court of John-! Fn county, which the following ex cerpt from the Warrenhurg .Star Journal explain in detail: "A jury compiled mainly of fann ers. aeFed n penalty of $50 against Walter K, Knaus, a well known drover towiiFhin fanner, liecuufo he had failed to cut n quarter of a mile of tall hedge which lines the road near his home. The Jury was out an hour and liftecn minute before returning the verdict. Tho county was represented by Prosecuting Attorney liothwell and M. I). Abcr, while Judge N. M. Ilrailley represented the defense. County Knglneer Joo McGuirc testi fied that the customary legal notice had been served upon Mr. Knaus to cut his hedge, and other evidence in dicated that defendant had deliberately decided to defy the law In this matter. Knaus gave as his reason for not com plying, that the hedge stood 0 to 12 feet inside the road lino on his own land and that It was his private prop erty. Since the anti-hedge law was enacted, Knaus built a wire fence on the line between the road and his hedge, though the hedge had been used as the lino fence for about 40 years previous to that time," It will be observed that this hedge fence In controversy fn Johnson coun ty Is located some little distance from the road and wholly on the land of the taxpayer who tested the law. Road overseers fn this county should give notice at once that all hedge fences must be cut. FOR SALE.
