- Tbo agricultural schedule which Is
to be placed in tb hands of these

board, who are acquainted with prae
tkal agriculture, its varying condi

have been most sarneat and no effort
is being spared to make tbe schedule
as airople as possible, and yet secure
tbe greataet amount of important in

There will be but one schedule for
