A Corwith Doctor Will Get Even with the County Board at the End of a Suit at Law. The Bill of Dr. Cutler's is a Whopper, but the Merits of the Case Different- Other Board Matters. Dr. H. Heskitt of Corwith has saddled his Rosinante, put on his pasteboard helmet, and crying havoc has let - slip the dogs of war. He is after Kos- euth county ducats, primarily. On his way to the treasury he will strew the board of supervisors and County Attor-. ney Raymond in legal slaughter and leave their bones to bleach In the scorching rays of indignation which he and Dr; Cutler of Bancroft are emitting. Dr. Heskitt heard that diptheria •prevailed at Hanna. He hastened to the scene and attended three families. There/were eleven patients, seven of whom we are informed did not recover. He presented bills for $337 to the board. He had not gone through the legal forms prescribed and had no legal claim. The board offered him $100. His Sancho Panza refused with scorn, and now Attorney Wood has served original notice and the doctor will " have the law on it," Prom the expressions of members of the board we are led to conclude that he will get all the law there is this side of the United Stages supreme court before he will get a cent of his breezy hill. The question raised in Dr. Cutler's bill of $144.25 for doctoring Wm. Clement is % different. The doctor is making a test case of it, and went through all the forms of getting the trustees to order the doctoring, although it is not claimed, we believe, that Mr. Clement is not able to pay for his own doctoring. The board want to know whether this kind of a case can be saddled on the county, and will also fight this if suit is brought. The board propose to know what can and what cannot be done by the medical men. The other medical bills acted on and not allowed were as follows: M. J, Keneflok. ....... .... ............... $ 1,50 O.B.Paul ................................. 3.00 T. J. Felling ............................... 19.00 Dr. Paul was allowed $5 on a $20 bill for pulling a man's arm into place. WHAT WE WILL VOTE ON. The full text of the resolution submitting the supervisor district plan to the county, as well as a jail tax and an increase in the number of supervisors, is as follows: Resolved, That the following propositions be submitted to a vote d? the people at the next general election ; " Shall the number Of members of the board of supervisors he increased to seven?" " Shall the county be divided into supervisor districts?" " Shall the sum of $7,000 he raised by a special tax to build'a jail in. and for 'said county, that a tax of IX mills on the dollar shall be levied on the taxable property of said county for 1895?" All the legal voters of said county who shall be in favor of the foregoing propositions shall deposit ballots having written or printed thereon the following words.to- wit; " For increase of supervisors ; "For supervisor districts-," "For Jail tax;" and all legal voters who shall be opposed to said propositions shall deposit ballots having written or printed thereo,. the following: " Against" supervisors, districts, or jail tax. TSE RUSSIAN THISTLE. Discussion of this pest weed occupied as much time as anything, and the board decided to send copies of the law to all township trustees and notify tberq of their duties. There is no doubt that the thistle is in this section and that prompt action la needed. The Spirit Lake Beacon says this week that there is not 'a township in Dickinson county free from Jt. In Pocahontas county the papers say it is present, while over in Winnebago opunty the town of Thompson has the weeds in its corporate limits, and the Summit calls for action, A big sample thistle was secured from the north end of Kossutb Thursday> and the board gent samples to, all the towns, The law is very strict on land owners and township officers.

The Law Is Plain arid Township Of cers Will Bo Expected to 800 that It la Enforced. In view of the importance of exterm inating the Russian thistle and othe pest weeds which are getting started in northern Iowa we publish herewith the law enacted at Des Moines the past win ter, which it will repay everyone to carefully read. A vigorous effort hai been begun by the county board of su pervisors to stop the spread in Kossuth this fall. The township authorities have been notified and every farmer who has these weeds upon his land wil be expected to obey the law or accept the penalty. Prompt action right now will end the difficulty. Let every man get out this coming week and do his share. The law is as follows: Sec. 1. That it shall he unlawful for any land owner or occupant of lands or lots, or corporation-or association of persons owning, occupying, or con trolling land as right- of-way, depot grounds,' or for any other purpose, or any public officer in charge of any street or highway, to allow to grow to maturity thereon the Russian thistle or salt- wort, " salsoli kali" variety " tragus." 2. That it shall bo the duty of every person or corporation so owning, occupying, or controlling lands, lots, or other real property or any highway supervisor or other public officer having charge of any street or highway, to cut and burn or otherwise entirely destroy any Russian thistles growing on said premises, right of-way, highway, or street, between the 25th day of August and the 10th day of September ol each year, and any person, corporation, or public officer neglecting to destroy all such Russian thistles between said dates, after notice of their presence, in writing, to said person or corporation or officer, or to an agent of any said person or corporation, by any person, shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor and he punished accordingly. 8. That it shall be the duty of all persons inowing of the presence of Russian thistles upon any premises, lands, lots, street, highway, or elsewhere at any time to give no- jlce in writing to the owner, occupant, or person or corporation in control, or their igent, and if not destroyed by the owner or occupants, to give notice immediately after ihe 10th day of September of that year to ;he chairman of the township board of ;rustees. or if within an incorporated town or city then to the mayor, who shall, before the 15th day of said month of September, cause the same to be cut and burned or otherwise entirely destroyed. The reasonable cost of destroying said thistles shall be paid >ut of the general county fund on the certificate of the board of township trustees or city or town council, of the amount of the lame, by the county board of supervisors. The said board of supervisors shall cause ;he amount so paid to he levied as a special ;ax against the premises on which said toistles have been destroyed and against ;he persons or corporation owning the premises, and the county treasurer shall sollect the same as any other taxes and re,urn it to the county fund.
