The proponed amend ment are Important ones and the voters of the county should study the same carefully and prepare tbeir minds so as to vote intelligently up. on each one at the proper time. One of the amendments proposes to fix a one mill tax for educational purposes of lbs State. The adoption by the people of this proposed amend ment will prevent the taking of monev from the general revenue fund for school purposes, and ought to reduce the State raillag. Another proposed amendment pro vides for the increasing of the salary of Jtlie judges Of the various courts. If the people think this should be clone tliey will vote for It.

If $1. 75 ik the price of a gslloo of lioneet paint, you may be quite eure there are scores of "puinta" stall priees from that down, with paint enough In t!i?ni to pass for paint.

Is s very common fallacy coucern i big rattlesnakes tbat each segment of ; the rattle Indicates year of .the ser i pent's existence, and It will probably be accepted until some one devises a safe method of exnmlnlng tbe teeth. One bas ouly to stand for balf bour In front of the rattlers' cage at any ecological garden or museum to bear It repeated several times, together with many other bits of misinformation which make tbe average "nature sto ry" seem a statement of bald fact by comparison. Although the young - rattlesnske comes into tbe world equipped with but a single button on tbe end of its tall, wbeu s year old It may bae as many as a balf dozen segments, while three a yeur may be tuken as fair average development In bunting, crawling over rough country anil through tangled brush tbe ruttles are apt to be Injured or lost, and occasion ally a very large specimen Is eeeu with but two or three segmeuts. while one of the banded variety procured In Pennsylvania for the Bronx zoo was less than three feet In length and pos sessed seventeen perfect rattles, the absence of the terminal conguultnl but ton detnoiiHtnitiiig thut oue or more-' pieces bud been lost. A segment is nddud to the rattle each tlme-jhe fliinke rnsts Its ul:ln. and this may occur every month of tbe snake's active season, which In tbe northern states lasts from early May until tbe first severe storm of winter drives It to the den for Its long hibernation. This casting of the skin, which Is com mon to all serpents and luuny of the lizards, Is s curious provision to pro tect the reptile from disease and dis comfort, and, like most of nature's pro visions, it Is a wise one. ' Since the day when the serpent was condemned to crawl abjectly on Its ueny, insieao or wriggling gruceiuuy -upon Its tail, as a punishment for whispering suggestions for tbe fall Into the eager enr of Eve it has been peculiarly liable to Injure its sensitive Integument and. spending Its exist ence In close contact with the ground, It becomes the unwilling host of many ticks and parasites which are harbored by tbe decaying vegetation. Any un fortunate wbo bas accumulated a few wood ticks arj laboriously removed tbem from his bide witb tbe polut of a knife and ammonia will appreciate bow much easier it would be to grow now skin snd envy tbe serpent tbo ready means st Its disposal to rid Itself of the unwelcome pests.
