Note and Comment.
But a few years ago we heard
much about the danger that lay in
the acquisition of large landed
estates under the ownership of the
private individual or the real estate
syndicate. The changes have been
rung time and again on the decad
ence of the small farmer and the
development of the landlord—non
resident in many instances—with
his thousands, if not tens of thou
sands of acres. And in truth some
fifteen or twenty years ago it looked
as if there were some warrant for
alarm from this score. In what is
now known as the Middle West, in
the South and the Southwest, veri
table empires were fenced in under
one ownership, and valuable land
for tillage was kept out of use to
the detriment of the common weal.
It was apparent for a time that the
evil would grow rather than dimin
ish, but such has not proved the

of lands, which have been under
lease to great cattle corporations
for grazing purposes.

to sell the land, instead of releasing

alone in Texas, but in the states of
the Middle West and in other
states which border the Gulf, the

vision of larger bodies of land for
the creation of the small farm and
the advent of tho small farmer has
been going on for some time.
notable has this been that we may
safely say the apparent danger from
the large landed estate is rapidly
Every student of economical fact

In California, in
Texas, in Colorado, in Dakota, there
has been abundant evidence to the
effect that the princely domain, as
we were wont at times to refer to
the grain ranch or the cattle range
that was measured by miles, and
not by acres, was depriving the
community of what it might pos
sess if there were many owners of
It required no argument to show
that the counhry would be the
richer under the ownership system
by the enhancement in land values
from cultivation, by the value of
the improvement which would fol

new centers of commercial activity
which would come as a matter of
course with tho greater number of
people which the land would sup
port. In other words, it has come
to be the recognized fact that the
small farm adds to the wealth of
the state and the Nation: and in
stinctivejy the American has turned
to that which in general results
will give him the best return.—
We gi»e the following from our
late laws enaoted at the last session
of the legislature, which is of gen
eral interest to the people and
should be thoroughly understood
by each and every householder:
Section 3. It shall be the duty
of all physicians, accouchers or mid
wives in the State to report to the
secretary of the board of health of
the city or county in which they
may occur, all births and deaths
and shall immediately report con
tagious diseases as are specified by
the State board, which may occur
under their supervision, with a cer
tificate of the cause of death, and
such correlative facts as may be re
quired in the blank forms furnished
by the State Board of Health.
When any birth or death may occur
with no physician, accoucher or
midwife in attendance, then euch
birth or death shall be reported by
the householder where or under
whose supervision such birth or
death occurred, with the cause of
death, if such be known.
death coming under the jurisdiction
or supervision of any coroner shall
be by him reported to the secretary
of the board of health of the city or
oounty in which such death may o c
cur, within three days after death
for burial purposes, and such deaths
so reported shall not be required to
be reported by any other person.
No undertaker, sexton or other per
son shall bury any human body un
til he has received a permit to do
so from the county or city health
officer or some duly appointed dep
uty. No such permit shall be is
sued until there has been delivered
to such health officer or deputy a
certificate of death according to the
form prescribed by the State Board
In the event of any
burial without a permit, as herein
provided, the coroner of the county
wherein such illegal burial was
made may disinter the body, hold
an inqueBt and, within three days
thereafter, make a return of his
findings to the nearest local health
London, Aug, 21.— The Indian
office announces the resignation of
Lord Curzon of Keddleston as
Vioery of India, and the appoint

successor. Cruzon's resignation is
thejresult ofcorrespondence between
the viceroyand the Indian office
over the re-organization of the
army in India and the appointment
of Lord Hitchner as commander-
in-chief of the forces in India. The
immediate cause of the resignation
was the refusal of the cabinet to
