If you break the turf anywhere, it is just like breaking your skin, ¥oa must fix it directly, or there Will be a sore place Ob the lawn, Even if it gets well there will always be a scar there unless you tnend it carefully. STou should see the English, lawns after a sbowert The green is beautiful, and every blade of grass stands up straight, but all the little blades are of exactly the same length, and they look soft and level. The perfume of the new grass is delightful, They have windows generally that coine down to the floor, and on the walls outside the house are climbing rose bushes all in bloom. The combined odor of roses and new mown grass is very pleasant. You have to go at a lawn as if it were a piece of em broidery you were at work on. First you must have ngood rich, decaying mold for the grass to live on. You cannot make grass grow in sand. Then as the grass comes up you must go over it step by step and dig out all the coarse grass and weeds and be sure to mend each place after digging up the roots. Then you will begin to find patches where no grass appears. You want to have grass seed handy and sow these places with it. 1 water my lawns twice a day—in the morning before the sun gets fairly up and at night after it goes down. I mow the glass every week. After you have a good lawn you must watch every inch of it. You have no idea how easy it is to lot a patch here and there get poisoned to death. When you find any foreign substance on a lawn that is likely to poison the grass, you want to dig it up, put fresh soil and fertilizer under it nnd fit a new and healthy bit of turf in the hole you have made. Then keep nn eye on it afterward and water it well. The rich, decomposed sweepings from the stable make the best fertilizer. In pruning trees you want to cut off eveiy long shoot and make your trees compact and bushy like a full blown rose. Even wealthy Americans let their trees get scrawny, and they don't always cut them enough to prevent decay in some of the branches. It is easy to trim trees if yoxi understand this principle. And the only reason I have been successful -with my lawns is tbat I have been willing to take pains with them and do a lot of hard work.—New York 3un. His Inheritance.

" 1. Under sub division 069 of the code, have the township trustees ah absolue and unqualified right to levy a tax of five mills on the dollar for road purposes, and if they have done so, can the board of supervisors of the county levy a tax of one mill on the dollar provided for under Sec. 1. Chap. 300, acts Twentieth general assembly, or does the attempt of the board of supervisors to levy a five mill tax deprive the board of supervisors of the power to levy the onfl mill tax, since the two taxes together can* not amount to more than five mills? " If only one or two townships in the county levy the full five mills and the rest of ;he townships levy four mills, and the county levies one mill, Would the county levy be void as to the former townships and valid as to the latter or void altogether?" Section 909 above referred to, which is a )art of the original revision and has been imended several times by subsequent legislatures, the last time being the Thirteenth general assembly, gives the boards of town- ihip trustees the right to levy a tax for lignway purposes on the property in the .ownship of not less than one nor more than five mills on the dollar. Up to 1884 counties had no power to levy taxes for road purposes and the township tax was he only highway tax. Chap. 200, acts of the Twentieth general assembly, passed in ,hat year, gives the board of supervisors of ach county the power to " levy a tax of not more than one mill on the dollar of the assessed value of the taxable property in ho county. Provided that the amount eyied by the township board of trustees under Sec. 909, together with the amount bus levied, shall not bo in excess of five mills." The questions you aaft relate to the iffect of this proviso. Was id the intention f the legislature by it to forbid the county o levy the one mill tax in case the town- hip trustees had levied the full five mills, r to limit tho levy of the trus-tecs to four mills if the county chose to exercise its lower to levy one mill. I am of the opinion hat tho meaning of the proviso and tho in- ontion of the legislature was to limit tho lower of the township trustees. The lan- runge of the proviso is that "•the amount oviod by the trustees, together with the ounty tax, shall not bo in excess of five mills." By its terms this applies to 'the ownship trustees and not to tho board of upervisors. It is the last expression of he legislative will on the subject, and must herefore bo considered as amending Sec. 09. This conclusion disposes of both of your .uestions. If the board of supervisors evied a one mill tax, the levy of the town- hip trustees in excess of four mills would )Q void. This would bo true whether all of ho townships or only a part of them made. he excessive levy. Truly yours, Jxo. Y. STONE. This settles the matter under the old aw, while tho now law changes the •eadiug so as to retnoyo all question. ?he county board have levied the one nill in this county and the levy is sus- ained by this opinion.
