Tax dodgers are motrtly rich men ami
corporations. And so men argue that.
Inasmuch as we cannot tax them fairly
and equitably on all thedr property, it
is no more than right to tax them
heavily, and perhaps unfairly In some
cases, upon such property as we can
find and lay our hands on. We do not
say that the reluctance of the average
man to pay taxes is altogether due to
the feeding that our laws are unjust.
But we do insist that the rich men of
the country are laying up trouble for
themselves when they fail to perform
their duty in the fullest way.
The Alaska boundary controversy
with Great Britain has been settled.
The Canadians are not very well
pleased because the contention Is con
ceded to us that the three marine
leagues provided for by the treaty be
tween Russia and the United States
shall be measured from the shore of the
mainland Instead of the outer shore of
the islands formed by the Inlet. In
our first survey the lwundary was fixed
In accordance with the treaty that tbe
line should extend from Dixon Inlet or
Port Simpson northward, at a distance
of three marine leagues from the sea,
to a point near Mount St. Elias, and
from there the boundary was to extend
due north along the 141st meridian of
the Northern Ocean. There never ba
been any controversy as to the boun
dary line between the main body of
Alaska and British America. The only
differences were as to the deviation Ln
surveys made by different engineers 1n
locating tbe 141st meridian. The main
controversy has been as to the boun
dary of the narrow strip of Alaska ex
tending southward from Mount St.
Elias to Port Simpson. The Dominion
government took the position that in
establishing the boundary one the three
marine leagues should be measured
from the eater coast of the Islands and
not from tbe coast of the main land.
claiming feat tbe inlets should be re
garded as rivers. This would have
taken away from the United States a
strip of territory rich to minerals, and
would have left ln some doubt the con
trol of the coast The present de
cision is undoubtedly Just, and a cor
rect interpretation of the treaty. More
over, It la wen, at this time of Interna
tional complications to remove this
bone of contention between ourselves
and Great Britain.
The measure known as the "Loud
Bin" was defeated in tbe House of
Representatives. It was reported ia
the last Congress from the PostoiBce
Committee, by Mr. Loud of California,
who was then and la now chairman of
tbe committee. It was Intended to re
form what are regarded as abuses of
the postal laws, ln the eending of "sec
ond-class" mail matter. Second-class
matter consists of newspapers and
other periodicals sent from the offices
of publication, and to entitled to trans
mission at one cent a pound. Under
the law many poMicatloos have been
admitted to second-class rates which
Congress originally did not Intend to
Include In that class, such as printed
books and newspapers for advertising
purposes only. Moreover, publishers
are authorised to send "sample copies;"
and under this cisaee enormous uum
bers of periodicals are sent wtth every
Issue, as a very cheap method of ad
vertising. Tbe cost of sending matter
by mall is much more than one cent a
pound; and thus the government .s
made to bear a part of the expense of
private enterprises. If tola were the
whole argument ln relation to tbe
measure, the bill would have bean pass
ed almost unanimously. There Is an
other side of the question. It Is unlvti-
sally admitted that the sending of bona
fide newspapers and magazines at less
than cost Is desirable. In that it places
Intelligence regarding current events
within the reach of ail men. The dim

The Ox Warble FIT.
The warble or swelling on the back
of cattle Is caused by the larva of a
fly which attaches Its eggs to the hair
on the legs, flanks and neck of the ani
mal. These hatch and the larvae estab
lish themselves under the skin, usually
on either side of the bai kbonc. Here
tbey feed upon the animal juices until
ready to pupate, causing the swelling
or warble. When growth is completed
the grub leaves the warble, drops to
the ground, crawls under the most con
venient shelter, such as a piece of
board, log, etc., and there transforms
Into the fly or adult stage. There Is a
difference of opinion as to bow the
grub gets under the skin. Some ento-
niologlsts claim that the eggs are taken
Into the stomach by the animals lick
ing themselves, hatch there, adhering
to the walls, then the grubs gradually
work their way toward the surface,
where they remain until fully grown.
Others hold that the eggs batch where
they are laid and the young larvae
bury themselves at once under the
skin. Whatever method Is employed
the results are the same.
The best way to get rid of the pest Is
to kill the maggot This may be done
by squeezing them out. Place the
thumbs near tbe base of the swelling
and press firmly until the grub Is forc
ed out To preveut the attacks of the
fly ln summer, a mixture of four
ounces of flowers of sulphur, one gill
of spirits of tar w ith a quart of train
oil rubbed along '.be spine, loins and
libs Is useful. Train oil can be used
alone. As tbe fly does not move about
from place to place freely. Ita eradica
tion on Individual farms depends al
most completely upon tbe owner.

To Deatroy Weeds.
The earieot and best way to destroy
all kinds of weeds Is when tbey are just
beginning to appear above ground, as
even a slight stirring of the soil will
then seriously cripple them In growth
or destroy them. If weeds are permit
ted to grow, however, tbey make excel
lent green material for plowing under,
but while they may nearly reach ma
turity before thus utilized, under no
circumstances mut they be permitted
to produce seed. If no weeds are si
lowed to scatter seeds It will be but s
few years before the farm will be en
tirely clear of them. It will' pay tbe
farmer, however, to keep weeds down
by stirring tbe top soil when ths weeds
are young.
