Compared with the number of our
people and their ability to pay taxes
we have a very large mileage of public
highways, no part of which can be en
tirely neglected, and our road taxes
collected and expended as they hereto
fore have been are barely sufficient to
keep most of these highways, which
must be used, in a passable condition.
It is doubtful whether our people are
yet ready to submit to additional bur
dens in the shape of highway taxes.
What then can be done?
This is the practical question.
All will concede that if our road
taxes .were paid in money,- and judi
ciously expended under the direction
of experts skilled in the art of making
roads, much more could be accom
plished than is now; but it is doubtful
whether there would be general assent
to a plan which Would require the pay
ment of all road taxes in money.
Still it is apparent that any system
which will result in the permanent im
provement of our highways absolutely
requires a cash fund with which to be
gin and the oversight of persons skilled
in the art of making roads. Such per
sons cannot usually be found within
the road districts, and if found could
not afford to spend their time for the
compensation allowed a road supervisor,
Hut upon .smooth dry land, devoid of
engineering difficulties of all kinds,
anyone can construct a highway that
will be reasonably passable at any sea
son of the year, and this part of the
work, covering much the greater part
of the mileage, could in my judgment
be left in charge of local supervisors
and worked out as is now done.
It is perhaps reasonable to assume
that this would absorb one-half of the
road taxes now levied, and this share
could be paid in work if 60 desired.
The remainder of the road tax and all
of the bridge tax, if we are to improve
upon our present system, must be paid
in cash with the spring installment of
taxes. This would supply a cash fund.
the first essential to a change in our
Then, in every county at least,
a competent engineer would bo re
quired to formulate plans for the con
struction of roads at all points of diffi
culty, and thin work in my judgment
should be lot to the "lowest bidder for
cash, his pay to depend upon the cer
tificate of the engineer that ho had
completed the work according to the
plan submitted.
The first object to be attained in the
construction of our highways is a
foundation as nearly perfect as prac
ticable. To accomplish this in bad
places will require an extensive and
sometimes complicated system of drain
age. None but competent engineers
can prepare the plans for this, and it
will be necessary to confer on the coun
ties or road districts the power of emi
nent domain so that adjoining lauds
may be condemned to enable the dis
trict to perfect these systems of
drainage. , .
All bridges should bo built under the
supervision of the engineer, and all
money collected for rotvd taxes should
be expended in the district in which it
is collected.
In this way we could at once begin
the proper construction of a permanent
foundation for our wagon roads, which
would, in my judgment, without ad
ditional expense, save the salary of an
engineer, greatly improve the present
condition of our highways and at the
same time prepare them for gravel or
macadam when the country is old
enough and rich enough to complete
the work of converting them into per
fect roads. Gov. Horace Itoics, in Good

Many shrink from the practice of de
horning who would gladly adopt some
way of preventing the growth of horns.
This can be cton with little, if any, suf
fering to the animal. The department
of agriculture suggests a method as
follows; Mix 6fty parts caustic soda,
twenty-five parts of kerosene oil and
twenty-five parts of water. An emul
sion is made of the kerosene and soda
by heating and vigorously Rtirring. and
this is then dissolved in water. The
mixture should then be placed in a
bottle with a solki rubber cork. In
applying, the calf should not be over
three weeks old, five to twenty days
being the proper age. With a pair of
scissors clip the hair around the embryo
born, exposing- a spot aliont the size of
a nickel. Hold the calf securely and
,drop two or three drops of the mixture
upon the horn, and with the end of the
rubber cork nub it in thoroughly over
the ban y,tot. Apply the fluid first to
one horn and then the other, until each
horn has been gone over three or four
times. The rubbing should be conlin
ued until the caustic has softened and
removed the hair and surface skin im
mediately around the horn. Care
should be taken that the fluid does not
spread over a large surface or run down
the sides of the face. The mixture must
be carefully aud thoroughly applied;
if used carelessly the embryo horn may
not only le killed, but the face of the
calf may le disligured. This method
is not only less cruel to the animal but
it is said, leaves the head in better form
than when dehorning is practiced in
the old way.

Seaioanble Advice at to nigging nJ
Reaping the Tubers.
One can easily select a time when the
soil is in the right condition to fall right
away from the potatoes when turned up
either with the plow, potato digger or
fork. By having a dn crop iu this
way the labor of harvesting is greatly
lessened. Potatoes should not be
washed, as a rule. Yet they musk if
we dig them with the soil adhering to
them. . A dirty crop of potatoes will
not keep well. ,
Sometimes, however, potatoes will get
muddy from necessity, and then some
place to keep them while they are
washed should be provided. It is not
such an easy job to wash potatoes, for
the mud is only loosened and not
washed off by throwing .water over
them. If they are piled up in a heap
and then washed with a hose for somo
time, the tops will be as clean as a
whistle, but down toward the bottom
the mud has accumulated.
The easiest way to wash them is to
make a temporary lattice work on the
top of four barrels. Lay bean poles
across the four rails, so close, that the
potatoes pannot slide through. On top
of this place one bushel of potatoes at a
time, and then turn the hose on them.
The water and dirt will drip through
the lattice work to the ground and
leave the potatoes bright and clean. As
fast. as cleaned the potatoes should be
spread out on a canvas or boards to dry
before storing. They will dry in a very
Bhort time in harvesting seasons. They
must not be stored away in a damp,
cold place while wet or the rot will
surely set in.
A good drying and storing place for
potatoes should be provided beforehand
in tlie barn. A lattice floor should be
made somewhere ' on the north side of
the bain, and either stretched from
mow to mow or constructed on a cheap
framework. The floor can be made of
bean poles or cheap scantling. The
spaces between the slats should only be
about an inch. If such a storage place
is provided the potatoes can be placed
there even when they are wet, for the
dry air circulating through thein soon
carries away the moisture. All through
the rest of the summer and the early
fall the potatoes can be kept in this
cool place in the best of condition. If
potatoes are to be kept until later in
the winter for sale they will turn out
50 per cent better if cared for in the
summer in this way. All of the mois
ture is dried out of their, and heat has
no chance to rot them. Colman's Ru

A Weed That In Common In the West
and South went.
The horse nettle (Solanum Caroli-
nense) is a well-known troublesome
weed in Illinois, Missouri, Kansas
southern b. a a, Arkansas and south to
northern Texas. ; It is a perenuial nnd
produces long and deep roots, some
times more than three feet Ordinary
plow ing will not kill them,-they must
be dug up, but the best plan for their
destruction is to cut the' plant off sev
eral inches below the ground. In no
case allow any leaves to apppar above
the surface. The leaves are the organs
of the plant in which food is made and
this is stored away abundantlj- in the
root-stock ud roots. This accounts
for some of the extraordinary vitality
of the underground parts. '1 his Weed
is a close kin of the potato, liaviug vio
let or white flowers and yellow berries.
The potato is known botanicaiiy as
Solanum tuberosum. The common
nightshade, with small white flowers
growing abundantly in shady places, is
also closely related to it. The berries
of this plant are black, and we were all
taught to avoid them as they were
supposed to lie very poisonous. In
Kansas, Missouri and the southwest is
a prickly, somewhat hoary plant bear
ing yellow flowers. It is an extremely
common weed along' roadsides, aud is
avoided by cattle and farmers fear it,
It is much easier to destroy being an
annual. Hut like the Russian thistle
iu Dakota it has become so common
that the task is a very difficult one, aa
it would require concentrated, contin
ned action everywhere. Prof. Paro

Facta About Pyrethrum.
A correspondent is informed that the
destructive, element of pyrethrum is a
volatile oil which readily escapes r
soon as the powder comes in contact
with the air. Hence the powder should
not be unnecessarily exposed before it
is used. When it can be used in the
house and the rom in which it is used
is tightly closed, it will kill any insect
in the room, flies, mosquitoes, bed bugs,
etc. The room should be closed for
several hours when used for such a pur
pose. W hen used on plants, of course,
a great deal of the volatile principle is
lost but still there isenough that come
in contact with the insects to kill sev
eral species. It is a good remedy fo

Don't Blame the Cook
If a baking powder is not uniform in strength,
so that the same quantity will always do the same
work, no one can know how to use it, and uni
formly good, light food cannot be produced with it
All baking powders except Royal, because
improperly compounded and made from inferior
materials, lose their strength quickly when the can
is opened for use. At subsequent bakings there
will be noticed a falling off in strength. The food
is heavy, and the flour, eggs and butter wasted.
It is always the case that the consumer suffers
In pocket, if not in health, by accepting any sub
stitute for the Royal Baking Powder. The Royal
is the embodiment of all the excellence that it is -possible
to attain in an absolutely pure powder.
It is always strictly reliable. It is not only more
economical because of its greater strength, but
will retain its full leavening power, which .no
other powder will, until used, and make more
wholesome food. v
