THE UPPER DEB MOINES three weeks ago published a letter from a farmer's wife protesting against the sale of dead hogs infected with cholera. Since then the Iowa Homestead, in replly to a correspondent, publishes the Iowa law on the question. A single sentence gives the gist: " All traffic in swine which have died of the swine plague, or hog cholera, or from any other infectious or contagious diseases, is hereby prohibited, and it shall bo unlairful for any person to haul in any vehicle or public conveyance any dead hogs which have so died, or are known to be affected with such diseases, upon any public road or highway, or upon any enclosure other than that upon which said hogs have died." Any one violating this statute is liable to a fine of $100 for each offense. A county paper gives notice to its patrons: "Your taxes are payable at the- State bank." This is misleading. All taxes are payable at the county treasurer's office. People living in outside townships can have their local banks pay their taxes for them but the taxes are not paid till the money is in the treasurer's office and the receipt made for them. The way for every tax payer who can, is to come to the treasurer's office and get his own receipt. Then he knows just what he is doing. But if he cannot do this, then he is at liberty to send any banker or other agent he sees fit,' Banks very often greatly accommodate their patrons by paying taxes for them. But taxes in Kossuth are not payable at banks, and no tax payer has paid his taxes until the money is in the treasurer's hands and a receipt issued by him, The Minneapolis Tribune of December 16 last says of the opera company for Saturday evening: "The Metropolitans have many points in their favor.
