A municipal councirpas^js  a  bylaw at the beginning .of var-.h  year to assess property and collect  taxes.   It must keep its hands eft  person'ai property,' it may tax improvements on   a   50 per cent assessment or less, and it must lax  lond values.   It may tax improvements at less than 'iihe 50 per cent  assessment,   or  may ;exempt   Improvements altogether; or m.ay?3x  .mprovements for certain specif':;d  purposes   ,as   for   schools   or   fir3  protection. ��������� .  ��������� ������������������   il   ��������� ,i.-2ii  . As a consequence, one finds" quite  a difference in the details of taxation in British Columbia. There  are about two,dozen munacipahlied  that do not tax Improvements foi  any purpose; a few otners tax improvements as m[uch as 1 or-2 mills  on a 25 to 50 per cent assessment!  for schools or fire protection'of f'lr  sinking fund and interest purpojes  still others impose the regular mill  rates on improvements. (50 per ceut  valuation) as on land values���������and  several of these are about to quit-  taxing improvements.  From the amount |0f noise made  over what is called the "Vancouver  system"   of   exempting a'mpr,ove-  ements since January. 1, 1910, one  might infer that Vancouver is the  pioneer in British .Columbia, m exempting  improvements  from tax.  But there are eight or ten mume  ipalities in the Province that have  not  taxed  improvements for  any  purpose since they were organised  ten or fifteen or twenty years ago.  The world knows about Vancouver  because Vancouver has advertised  In many municipalities that- tax  mprovements one finds much sen-,  timent ,in. favor, of exempting improvements from, tax; and-please  rememiber. this important fact: V,o  one.jbut taxpayers vote on municipal questions, and the landowners  are the only taxpayers.   I am not  throwing ,a. boquet at thj2 system  o: landowner suffrage, but the #oint  ���������is that the landowners themselves  prefer exemption, .of personal property and improvements 'and laxi-.  tion   of  land   values.   In   another'  letter I s'hall gdi������e some official assessment >and tax figures showing  why I did not find   a   farmer or  other taxpayer in British Columbia  who had any compMnt to mate of  "hagh taxes." ~   ,.  But  of   they   do.n't  t;ax  privatft'  property how do they tax'land?  On 'it's "people value'', on the value given  to it-by population, but"  not on the value given to it by the  owner's labor.   Ten. acres of bash  land and ten acres of stump r>'ae -  tore and ten acres of highly cultivated land are assessed at the same  value as if the land is of thesarno  quality and has the same comiin:n-  ity-made   or  "people value."   Tho  lard   value   assessments (are' uof*  high, either; not high onpugh.  More  than one farmer saiid to me:''Taxes   are  not  Ivigh ��������� enough.      Thoy  should be higher so as to have better roads."  ''One mile west ol Hunt  in'gdon, B.

It  seemed   a  .great  surpriio to  the  writer.of the article  thac the  various municipali'ties of p. C. were  permitted to collect their own taxes and use the ruoiniey as they .saw  fit, such as improvements on read-,  schools, etc.   But nevertheless s'ucL  is the case..        ....  The fact that the improvements  in Vancouver (were not taxed seemed a wonder to the writer.

He has been doing it for  three years, a'nd is.already making  preparations to pay, his way  through a first class agricultural  college Avith what ho calls-"my'"Jt)0-  t-ato proceeds."  Twoi years ago he found a heap  of potatoes in a perfectly ..dark  room in the stable. Instead of being decayed each potato was surrounded by bunches ,'of almo.s'-  perfectly: white little potatoes a-  bout the si������e of hickory nuts. Selecting large, perfect potatoes  without the slightest blemish he  spread uniformly dry vegetable ���������  mold sifted fine' and 3 or 4 incnes  es deep pn the bare floor of the  same room, from .which every particle of light "was excluded-.  He half buried the potatoes in  rows about 4 inches apart nover  allowing a ray of daylight to touch  them, and within . three wee&s of  the fdrst planting many pure white  ���������new potatoes about the size of v3  walnut had developed on the old  potatoes. These he removed and  made gifts to his Mends.   In a few  weeks more a second crop was  gathered, and after this a thr/T  from tlie' original planting. ' His  "dark garden" spread to the cellar and an old loft, aud today, tlie  ''Joe" Hawkins potatoes sell like  eggs for so much a dozen in the  open village market, amd within  twa years "Joe" has got about 5J  private customers to buy all lbs  new potatoes he can raise.���������Chris -  tian Herald.      /  The story.of a 4,000 mile trip after moose is told by a German  JTmntcr in the opening number of  the November 'ssue of "Rod and  Gun in Canada," published by W.
