' friendly Legislation.
At the session of the 2sebr.-i.ska Leg
islature just closed, f-everal acts were
paed encouraging Agricultural de
velopments of the fctate. "An Act to
encourage the growth of Timber,
Fruit Trees and Hedges, provides to
exempt from taxation of the real or
personal property of each taxpayer
who shall plant, andsuitably cultivate,
one or more acres of foreet trees for
timber, the sum of one hundred dol
lars annually for five years for eacn
acre planted and cultivated ; the trees

dred dollars, will exempt it from tax-
ation for five years. e are notmucn
the mssaire of laws to
induce men to do what their interest
of itself requires them to do. A man
who would not plant four acres of
timber for the benefit he would derive
from it, would not be likely to devote
the expense and labor merely for the
paltry.bonasthe law provides. The
act in question was introduced and
passed, prompted by the best of mo
tives, and we wish may result in good.
Quite an effort was made to pass a
Herd Law. In fact a "Herd Law"
was passed ; but nearly every county
in'the Slate or at least one or more
precincts in nearly every county were
exempted from the operations of the
act. It is, therefore, in our opinion,
worse than none at all. We favor a
genuine herd law ; and fully believe
that the true interests of the .entire
State demands the enactment of such
a law." At our leisnre. and before an
other session of the Xegislature, we
intend to fully discuss this important
question. In the meantime, we invite
correspondents, and friends of agri
cultural developement to do the same.
Where fences are made, they should
be made to fence in, not out. There is
no justice is requiring one farmer to
fence iniis species of product, while
his neighbor's is allowed to roam over
the broad acres without check or re
straint. But enough for the present.
Section one of chaptcrpne of an act
now in existence,. entitled "Agricul
ture," and which now provides that
County Agricultural Societies shall
have from the County Treasury, two
cents on each inhabitant, but not to
exceed the'sura of two hundred dol
lars, was amended by increasing the
gum to three cents on each inhabitant,
and abolishing the restriction to two

only. If if had been general in its
application, it would have been a very

Tcntllatc the Cellar
It is quite common in the fall to
close all outside avenues to the cellar
and not allow them to be open till the
cold weather, is past. This is a bad
practice bad for the vegetables stored
within, and for the health of the fam
ily above. -
During moderate weather in winter
when for a week or more the mercury
scarcely falls below the freezing point,
a cellar tnus eiosea will he very warm
so warm as to hasten the decay of all
kinds of vegetables, and especialy of
iruus scoreu wuuin ; ana tuougii this
decay may not be apparent at first, yet
all that erispness, which characterizes
tresa vegetables and fruits, are lost;
in some cases the article hriveles and
dries up, and in others it begins to de
cay in Hpots.
It often happens that this state of
things exist as early as January, and
in almost all such cases the closeness
and heated condition of the cellar is
a prominent cause of the evil. To
avoid this, let some of the outside open-
turown open at any time, and they

and is no doubt one of the best early varieties we
