This case ims been argued three successive times before the Supreme Court. The case under the present decision of the court floes back for a rehearing iu the Circuit ('our/. but is an unquestioned victory for the revenue agent, who must wiu iu the end. The railroad company claimed an exemption from taxation under a charter of the Mobile & North- westeru Railroad, and the decision of the court is adverse to this claim. State ]'risen Farms Survey.

PACKAGES .OR SOLDIERS. All matter for officers and soldiers should be plain]y and durably marked, showing the name, rank (if any), number of regi- ment, State, and Brigade. Division and Corps to which the regiment belongs, thus: "Lieutenant John Smith, Co. B, 14th In- diana Inf., U. S. V., 2d Brigade, 3d Division,  Army Corps," giving the name of the place to which the package is to be forwarded by express. A11 such matter should be prepaid through to destination. All such matter should be labeled to show from what point originally shipped. It would be well to have the shippers' name on all packages of value, wherever it is probable that they may want such pack- ages returned. Prepayment is essential in order to facil- itate delivery. Often the Chaplain. Quar- termaster, or some other represeutative of the whole regiment, will receipt for and receive all packages for the regiment, but which delivery could not probably be made of packages billed to collect. When matter is thus propetqy addressed and prepaid, as it must be. all the matter for any particular regiment may be for- warded when a regiment is transferred from one pla(.e to another. Shippers may not always know the num- ber of tim Brigade, Division or Corps but they will always know the company and regiment to which the soldier belongs, and such address must never be omitteJ. Simihtr rules must be observed on hip- ments destined to Naval Stations, Fleets or Squadrons. The Southern Express Company rea(.hes Tampa. Port Tampa, Port Tampa City:Lake- land and Jacksonville.

Agents wfl! caution all shippers of sol- diers' packages to address them in accord- ance with the above instructions, and al- ways suggest to them to send a postal card or other letter notice to the soldier, advis- ing him how it has been shipidod, so that he may know what point to send for it. Give all the information herein eon- tained to shippers, or prospective shippers, of oldiers' packages. In any case where it is proposed to ship regularly, perisbaMes, such as meats, bread and other uuppliss, to uny particular regi- ment or command, agents are hereby authorized to quote the lowest rates au- thorized to the trade or to dealers. This will embrace all matter for regimental organi- zations or for canteens.

Prof. ]laecker says, as well as twenty; in a poor cow the thigh runs down straight, so there is no space be- tween the thigh and the udder on one side and the tail on the other. There should be plenty of daylirht between the udder and the tail. One of the best ways to tell what kind of a cow you have is her temperament. A good dairy type ires a sharp spine. (strongly developed nervous system, and sharp hip bones. A good cow has a large, wedge-shaped stomach, for she must have a htrgc aud powerful digestive sysiem to use up her food quickly and make the best returns for it. It is said the best way to rig up a nervous trotter that is afraid to go up in the bunch when the dirt is flying, and'keepsthrowing up his nose every time a piece of dust touches his face. is to fix ltim out with a face veil made of a piece of mosquito netting. This de- tree has been tried with success by sev- eral trainers, and they say that most of the breaks that horses snake in races "without any cause whatever" when they are sailing along all right cau be attributed to the sting caused by small particles of dirt and gravel thrown back by other horses in front. The secretary of the Milk Shippers' Union in Chicago is reported as saying that there are 12{).00.:) gallons of milk sent into that city daily, and 165.000 gallons sold. This mean that 45.000 gallons of water arc a,ldcd, we suppose. Ite also declares that 90 per cent. of the dealers make a practice of skimming the milk before delivering it to their customers, which seems like a very large percentage.

Mrs. Nancy Flynn, who lives near Goshen, Indiana, survived such an attaek and her advice is worth heeding. "In the tall of '9'2," she said, "I began, to have trouble with my heart. Tiere was a sharp pain in my breast which became rap- idly worse. The doctor was puzzled and put me under the influence of opiates.

How to avoid him or beat him off. If biliousness Isn't the bull, of the body then what is? When once bihousness gets the upper hand you don't dare say your stomach is your own. "Don't you dare eat that dish says biliousness, or you'll see witat I'll do." Van take the dare and you do see or rather feel, the weight of the bully's revenge. The head aches, not a regular ache. but an open and shut ache. The eyes ache, not with a dull, tired ache, but with an agressive ache, as if they were being bored by a gimlet. The stomach trembles with nausea. "The whole head itsick and the whole heart i3 faint." There are scores cf hundreds of people who live so under the dominion of this bully bil- iousness that they don't dare eat or drink without his permission. There's no need of such slavery. Dr. J. C. Ayer's Pills effectually cure biliousness. " For fifteen years I have used Dr. J. C. Ayer's Pills. and find them very effective in all kinds of bilious complaints. They are mild iu operation and easy to take. "I prefer them to any other pill. and have yet to see the case where theyhave failed to eure."&. SWAtEa, Texarkana, Ark. "I have used Dr. J. C. Ayer's Pills iu eases of biliousness and geueral disorders el the stomach and bow(Is and have found them to be always reliable. They are less liable to gripe than other purgative., and although mild in action, they sre thorough in operation. They are the best family physic that can be had."--PETER J. DUFFV, Rockport, Texas. " IIaving used Dr. J. C. Ayer's Piles for years and thoroughly testedthem, both as a preventive audcure for biliousness, I can truthiully say that I believe them to be the best media:the for thepurposeaud they do all that is claimed tar them."-- JNo. Ii, KOLB, Shark, Ark.

Ayer's Pills cure almost all these physical e'vils by going to the root.
