Internal Kcvcniic Durcau at Washington, D. C, Told of Legal Contest Impending ' Washington, I). C. Tho officers In the Internal revenue bureau who are charced with the responsibility of administering the new corporation tax law have been apprised of tho In tention of corporations to resist the law In the courts and test its consti tutionality, but the Treasury officers have not been nMo to learn the point of attnt'k. They believe that the law will stand the test, and their chief re liance is on the fact that It was drawn by able lawyers, who carefully safeguarclf :1 It by adhering strictly to the Supreme Court decision uphold ing the rlKht of Congress to tax a corporation for carrying on a busi ness. President Taft called to Ms assist ance In the work of putt Inn his Ideas Into wrlttenlnnBiiKceSecretary Khon, Attorney-General Wickersbam and Senator Root, nil of whom are ad mitted to he able lawyers, while the President himself Is not without a reputation for legal nblllty. It has been suggested thnt one point of attack would be that the law Is In reality not a tax upon the privil ege of doing business, whatever It may have been meant to have It be, but Is, according to the fairest con struction, a tax on profits. The officers of the Internal revenue bureau have collected evidence from nil over the country, as to the number of corporations, and' conferences were held ns to the method? to be pursued In collecting the tat. No definite plan will be formulated until the new commissioner of Internal revenue lakes ofllce. The Congress appro priated $ 1 .000 to asslBt the Treas ury Department In organizing a spe cial force for the collection of the tax. The officers of the Internal revenuo bureau express the onlnlon that this sum will not be sufficient, and the next session of Congress will be asked to make an additional appropriation. The tax Is to be paid on the earnings of corporations for the calendar year ending December SI. Returns must he niadn before March 1, 1910, and payment be made before June 30, or heavy penalties will be imposed. NO CHINESE HOGS FOR THEM. Eyeo.

The Peninsular nnd Orient Steamship Compnny believed that the carcasses could be brought In large quantities in refrigerating ships, and that the trnde might prove a competitor with froien beef and tnutton. The carcasses sold woll In the wholesale market, but the retailers find that the public will not have it. Some R000 hogs were brought oyer on a trial Bhlpraent and placed on sale at the Bhops for the first time at twenty-five per cent, below the prices charged for other Imported hogs. But tho public prejudice, even In the poorer classes, was so pronounced that the butchers had in most case to rnlse the price of other pork, such ns American ana European, before liiuj ncio uuid lu geu h.

Paris. concluding a series of im pressions of America which he gained during a recent visit to that country, Ougllelmo Ferrero, the Italian his torian, finds that the antl-plutocratlc movement Is essentially a struggle between the old traditions of the Puritan democracy and civilization, gold, luxury and pleasure a ropetlon undr modern and more complicated forms of tho struggle which rent Rome for three centuries. The rapidity of development, lightning changes In customs srnd the creation ' s multiplicity ot new needs, he says, eat up the large earn lngs of the people, who are living bet ter than the Europeans. Slgnor Kerrero believes that while tne antl-plutocratlc movement Is i triumph in some directions, It Is des tlned to fall In others. "Industrialism," says Slgnor Fer rero in concluding, "seems to be da. etroylng a part of the old-time Amer ica or Franklin and Washington and creating an America less American than that of the past.

One of tha principal problems con sidered by the Internationa Meteoro- logk-al Conference In London last week was the question of wireless marine weather reports. Professor Willis L. Moore, representing the Vnlted 9tates, urged the necessity of adopting regulations that will compel a ship beyond a certain tonnage to carry wireless Instruments and opera tors and to take at noon, Greenwich time, a dally observation of the weath er. Observations received by a ship would be transmitted to other ves sels, so thnt by means of suoh relays the weather conditions over the en tire ocean would In a few minutes reach the central meteorological of fices In the United States, England, France, Germany and other Interest ed nations. Forecasts could then be made and distributed to the vessels by wireless telegraphy. It Is believed that a universal system such as this would be a great factor In saving life snd property both on land and at sea. The conference, has adopted an International weather signal code. Heretofore American vessels have used flags by day and lights by night to convey storm warnings, while other nations have used balls and cones. Now any one will be able to read the weather signals, no matter what his nationality nay b. Scientific American. A MEAN MAN. "Her husband Is s brute." -As to bow?"

The little tot ate the Grape-Nuts and, cream greedily, and the mother continued the good work, snd It was not long before a truly wonderful change manifested Itself In the child's face and body. The re sults were remarkable, even for Grape-Nuts. 'Both husband and I use Grape Nuts every day and keep strong and well and have three ot the finest, healthiest boys you can Cnd In a day's march."

The harness and buggy may be Wade to last twice or three times as long by the Judicious use of oil and paint. I bought a cheap buckboard and harness seven years ago. Twice every year I took the harness apart at the buckles washed It with soap and then rubbed well with "neatsfoot oil," fifteen cents' worth, Every sum mer when the wheels began to rattle because of getting loose, I got a half gallon ot linseed oil and pif In a crescent shaped pan and boiltd the "felloeB" of the wheels in the oil. A tinner will make pan for fifty cents mfm. In which to boll the wheels in the linseed oil, For f 1.00 I bought enough ready mixed carriage paint every summer and treated the entire cart to a coat ot paint. As a conse quence my cheap harness and buck board did almojt dally service for seven years and was then given in part pay in buying another buck board and harness. There were oth ers who did not use oil and paint who bad three or four new sets of harness and carts. Mrs. M. G. Adams, In the Epltouilst, CROP TREATMENT. Crop bound is caused by the tak ing Into the crop of some material which the fowl Is unable to digest and pass on, such as straw, old, loug, tough grass, musty grain and such things. Some fowls eat so much that they over-distend their crops and suf fer from chronic crop bound. When noticed early, before there is. too much constitutional trouhle from tha condition, the crop should be washed out carefully by passing into It tha rubber tube of a founteln syringe. The syringe should have been filled with quite warm water. Grasp the throat of the fowl with the right hand, holding the fowl In the left. Let water run until crop Is well filled, and by compression on throat prevent the water running out When full remove tube, and, holding fowl by legs In left hand, head down ward, compress the crop with right hand, expelling Its contents. This can be repeated a number of times until crop Is emptied, Indianapolis News. THE EGG RECORD. I. K. Felch thinks the egg record ef a hen should not be measured by numbers, but rather by weight of egg. mis contention Is right. Quali ty and not quantity should be tha governing rule. In a letter tn th writer he submitted the following rciuiis tor tne month of March: Thirteen Plymouth Rocks laid 27 eggs, at 21.3 average per hen; flf. teen Plymouth Rocks, 834 eggs, ev erage 22.4; forty Plymouth Rocks 864 eggs, average 21.7; weight of the eggs, twenty-six ounces per doien. Brahmas. eleven pullets, three of which were hatched August 8, 185 eggs, average 18.9; ten Brah mas. 195 eggs, average 19.1; weight of eggs, thlrty-two ounces per dozen; 7 4 and 6 H ounces for a single egg has been known to be produced. He has four hens that are producing eggs to weigh thirty-seven ounces per dozen. The number of eggs s hen lay. Is only half the record; weight Is the true test as a food sup Ply. Twenty eggs at thirty-two ounces per dozen Is three pounds, five and a half ounces; twenty-two eggs at twenty-six ounces per dozen !" Pounds, eleven and two- third ounces. The Brahmas, though they lay the least In number, lay twenty-one and a third per cent, the greater amount of food supply American Cultivator.
