a distance of about 40 miles, com
searing at" Rock Creek and extend

Considering the increase in the
state tax levy, the levy for Ihe coun

templated, yet is high enough. The
levy as based on last year's assess
xneniis a -J follows: State tax 7.5-"5
mills; school, tax, " mills; connty
-tax, 9 09 mills; road tax, 3 mills; indi

ries, .13 mills, a total of 25 mills
.against a total of 20 miUs last-year,
tf.wheu the' stale levy was 5.70 mills.

Gentlemen: Your letter concerning sulfur and the sample of sulfur
have been received. . . '
I have examined this sample and find that it is almost entirely pure
sulfur. I think that it would answer the purposes very satisfactorily for
spraying compounds or insecticides. I think that if you have plenty of this
quality, or can get it, that it will be as good as any sulfur that we can obtain
for spraying materials. , .; 4 , Very truly vours
