Washington. D. C Shippers chaffc
ed higher rates for short hauls than
the published rates for longer hauls on
the same railroad and In the same
direction can only recover such actual
damages as they can prove, the su
preme court held Monday.
In an opinion by Justice McRey
nolds, it declarod the fact that the
rate for the longer haul was lower
than the rate for the shorter haul
would not of itself establish which of
the two was the unreasonable rate.
The question reached the court in
four cases. Threo came from the Pa
clfic coast, being brought against the
Portland Seed company and A. J. Par
rington, who won in the lower courts
The fourth case came from Minnesota
In all the cases the evidence show
ed that the railroads had in effect,
without the permission of the inter
state commerce commission, rates
which were higher for a short than
for a long haul. The shippers' es
sential charge was "that the carrier
demanded and received greater com
pensation for transporting freight tor
a shorter distance than its published
rate for transportating like property
for a longer distance over the same
route ar.d in the same direction."
The shippers contended that under
the long and short haul clause the
lower published rate became the maxl
mum which the carrier could charge
notwithstanding the higher published
rate, and that any amount collected
above the rate for tho long haul
amounted to an illegal action, recov
erablo without other proof of actual
damage and without regard to the in
trinsic reasonableness of either rate
Pointing out that the shippers had
not asked an injunction against il
legal rates, the court said that it was
"an effort to secure something itself
(themselves) without proof of pecun
iary loss consequent upon the unlaw
ful act."
Congress has not given any ind
cation, the court said, of an intent
"that persons not injured might never
theless recover what would really be
a penalty, in addition to the penalty
payable to the government."
Indians Are Thrifty.
Washington, D. C Chief Eagle Calf
of the Glacier National Park reserva
tlon is one of the progressive mem
bers of his tribe who has helped mak
the Blackfeet famed with the Indian
department here as the most thrifty
farmers of their race.
These Indians cultivated so much
wheat on their lands that the United
States government built them a mill
to grind their flour. The Blackfeet
are self-supporting and no longer ac
cept rations from Uncle Sam's hands.
Oil has made some tribes rich and
Uncle Sam has endowed others for
their lands, but the Blackfeet are the
only Indians that really have "lifted"
themselves by their own mocassin
thongs the Indian records show.

crease from 15 to J50 the minimum
price of a set on which the tax would
be levied.
This and the 10 per cent tax on
mah jongg sets costing more than
15 are the only new taxes carried
by the bill. The taxes are levied
on the manufacturer. The radio tax,
Chairman Smoot declared, would not
result in an increase in the price of
tho sets and parts to consumers.
Just which parts would be taxed,
however, would be left to the juris
diction of the internal revenue bureau
as in the case of the tax on automobile
parts, Mr. Smoot said. He figured
tho tax would net about $10, 000,000,
pointing out, however, that no ac
curate estimates were available.
Practically all of the rate sched
ules now have been agreed .upon, Mr.
Smoot said.

turns to inspection by congressional
committees was broadened by elimin
ation of a previous restriction voted
by the finance committee, making it
possible for the committees to make
public "any relevant or useful inform
ation" obtained in inspection of the
tax returns. The committee had pre
viously voted to allow congressional
commitlees to make public only the
names, addresses, amount of tax paid
and amount of refunds given of the
taxpayers whose returns were inspected.
Secretary Mellon's proposal to cut
out the house amendment increasing
the estate tax in favor of the present
rates wero agreed to definitely. The
committee had planned to keep the
present rates but apply them to dif
ferent brackets so that 112,000,000
additional revenue would be raised,
tho same as would have been gained
under tho house amendment.
It also was decided to limit articles
exempt from the 5 per cent jewelry
tax to thoso selling for less than $25
rather than thoso selling for $40 or
ess, as voted by the house. Musical
instruments, eye glasses and spec-
acles, which wero exempted by the
house from any tax under this section,
again wero made subject to the levy
and articles used In religious services
were exompt entirely.
Changes made in the bill will not
alter materially the estimate that it
will fall by about $50,000,000 of rais
ing sufficient revenue to meet estimat
ed expenditures of the government
next year, Chairman Smoot said. He
has predicted, however, that such a
deficit would be wiped out by an in-
roaso in revenue over that estimated
by tho treasury.

Eggs for shipment should be packed
la new standard thirty-dozen cases
with new fillers and flats and six
excelsior pads. The fillers should
weigh not less than 3V4 pounds to the
set No claim for breakage will be
paid by the express company for eggs
packed In second-hand brown tillers.
Careful grading, good fillers and good
cases will pay. Most breakage is due
to the use of bad fillers and poor pack
ing. The use of excelsior pads has
reduced breakage 75 per cent.
In packing the eggs first place an
excelsior pad in the bottom of the
case, then place a filler on this. It
will be noted in the honeycomb fillers
that two opposite sides of the walls
surrounding the eggs are firm and the
other two opposite sides are flexible.
The sides of the filler that are flexible
should run parallel to the sides of the
case. This lessens chance for break
age on the cars, since the egg cases
are plied In the cars with the sides of
the cases parallel to the sides of the
car. This method allows the firm part
of the filler to hold eggs against the
sudden Jars caused by stopping and
starting of the train. Place the eggs
In this filler with the small ends down,
imbedding themselves In the excelsior
pad. On top of the first layer of eggs
place a flat followed by a filler, again
placing eggs small ends down. Pack
the third and fourth layers the same
as the second. Directly on the fourth
layer place another excelsior pad,
packing the fifth layer of eggs directly
on this pad. In the same manner as
the first layer. On this top layer place
another excelsior pad. The cover
should be nailed on with five three
penny large-headed nails at each end,
but none In the middle. This leaves
a bulge in the center of the case that
absorbs shocks, yet holding the con
tents firmly.
At each end of the case place a tag
bearing shipper's and receiver's address.

Turkey Success Depends
Greatly on Free Range
"Turkeys cannot be raised in brood
ers nor in the back yard with chick
ens," says H. B. Landsen of the Uni
versity of Arkansas extension service.
"Turkey hens are more successful with
young turkeys than are chicken hens.
Let them forage all tliey wish. They
require some wild variety of feed
which they find when at liberty.
"The dread disease known as black
head destroys more than 60 per cent
of all turkeys hatched," says Land
sen. "The only preventive and rem
edy that has been discovered so far
Is ipecac. As a preventive, begin with
the turkeys when they are two or three
weeks old, giving a teaspoonful of
powdered Ipecac to each unit of ten
turkeys, twice a week, until they are
ten weeks old. Those visibly sick may
be treated fairly successfully with Ave
drops of tincture ipecac three times a
day, but sick birds should be re
moved from the flock while being
Several Kinds of Feed
Good for Laying Fowls
"To feed nothing but whole grain
Is one of the common mistakes In
poultry feeding," says Prof. L. E. Card,
University of Illinois. "A complete
ration for laying hens must contain
not only scratch feed, or whole grain,
but also ground feeds, animal protein,
green feed, mineral feed, and water.
The omission of any one of these Is
certain to result In lower production
than would otherwise be possible.
When hens can be allowed to range,
especially during the spring and sum
mer months, they obtain a variety of
feeds for themselves. During the win
ter, however, when there is little to
be picked up. rare must be taken to
supply everything needed.
