William Albrecht Gives a few Season
able Suggestions.
This is the month for planting
and pruning. .Roses should be
planted while in a dormant sta'r;
for, if removed for transplanting
while the sap is flowing freely, ami
the plant is in vigorous growing
condition, there occurs too great a
shock one from which the plant
does not easily recover..
Plants of delicate habit and weik
growth require severe pruning.
Those that are vigorous in growth
should have the shoots only moder
ately shortened, but the branches
should be well trimmed out.
" Rustic work having shaved Sur
faces ought to receive a co t or two
of linseed oil yearly. Vases, trelli
ses or other painted "garden work
may now be put in order hv clean-
1 wg and painting. . rrepare new
trellises in good season.
Pruning of trees and shrubs is
now in order. Manure, whether
gardening for pleasure or for profit.
The ground must '; not be cropped
year after year not even of Jthe
grass without returning some
equivalent in the form of manure.
Well decomposed stable manure, if
it can be produced, should be pre
ferred to all others.
William Albrecht.

Taxes And Where to Find the
Amount Sheriff Bnrnett's Plan.
Last year, Sheriff Burnett tried
the experiment of placing a numb
er of lists of the taxpayers and the
amount of the taxes of each in sev
eral places in the various precincts.
The preparation of the lists, with
2,500 taxpayers in thecounty. in-:
v lved a large amount of work, at
the sheriS's office, but it turned out
to be such convenience to the tax
payers that Sheriff Burnett has
put the same plan into . execution
again this year. " Lists of every
taxpayer in each precinct, some
times three or four lists ,in each
precinct have been prepared, and
sent ouN By reference to , these
lists the taxpayer can ascertain
the amount of his taxes and send
in the money without making - a
special trip to the county seat - for
the purpose.. Lists are to be found
at the following places:
