Too, I see where somebody, in the 'Des Molnes Register, has used the report of the "state checkers" to try to discredit some of your county officers. There Is another -instance where honesty of purpose seems to have been lacking. Treasurer Kruse is a close personal friend of mine; so I may be pardoned If I pass him as 100 per cent honest and efficient. Treasurers out here get short checks and have to carry them as cash items pending a settlement, and Kruse's own check In the cash drawer was no evidence of crookedness. ': Other treasurers of Kossuth have been accommodating; perhaps a little Irregular.. Before banks carried a tax list, took your money, .and secured receipts, I. once wrote the' 1 treasurer from north Kossuah to ask the amount of my taxes, promising to send a check as soon as I heard. What was my surprise when I opened the reply and found'a notation something like this: Dear Verne- I am enclosing your receipt; you can mail me a check for the amount. R. H. Spencer." A Story About Harry. Another time •! was in the treasurer's office when a prominent farmer from Seneca inquired .for the amount of his taxes. He said he knew he did not have money enough to pay all and, after learning the amount, revealed the amou.nt he lacked. He said he had had bad luck and it had cost him a lot of money. The treasurer asked whether he had lost a horse or had had a fire, but found that it was the wife, who had died. Thereupon the treasurer wrote'a receipt and pinned a slip thereto stating how much had been .paid and told the farmer he could send the rest later. I was. on the county checking committee there . one year, and if my memory Is correct, we found a few little irregularities like' these in the till—and left them there. About Corn for Fuel.

The non-producer allows little if any sentiment to enter into his buying of farm products. Maybe I'm all wrong, but I wouldn't pay 2c a bushel to have my corn shelled (and I have corn now in Kossuth), haul two loads to town to buy one load of coal, and haul the coal lome.' HauJing three loads would kill all the sentiment against burning a food product for fuel that might be slumbering in my system, Folks say that people should not burn up food, but lots of fruit and vegetables are rotting- on the ground Jecause there is no sale for it, or if here is, the price is too low to pay he expenses of marketing. The pro- ucers would burn it, if they could, nd save coal. Growers in California dump tons, of lemons Into the ocean, and coffee growers in Brazil dump bags of it.by the steamer-load into the 'Atlantic. How much better ; tb burn corn, and get the good of it.

Why, the people who make complaint, of course! County supervise ors are besieged for improvements— roads, bridges, etc. As soon as a permanent road Is established in front of Jones' farm, Brown insists that he is entitled to just as good a road in front of hie farm. And the argument is true, of course; only' all roads In-the county can't be "per. manentized" the same year. When I left Kossuth, if the roads ,,6fe blocked by snow, farmers had to break through with horses and sleds, or stay in and wait for a thaw; but now folks insist that the supervisors open the roads Immediately, so that they can get to town in"thelr'automobiles. Roads .and maintenance cost a lot ot money, and the taxpayers have to pay it.
