List Highlights in
1944 Tax Legislation
Highlights of the l44 tax legisla
tion, according to a report by the
federation of tax administrators, in
clude: Mississippi's 10 per cent
"black market" tax, applicable pri
marily to alcohol beverages; re
enactment by Louisiana of its 1 per
cent sales tax on a permanent
bas; the repeal by New York. New
Jersey and Virginia of exemptions
formerly granted federal property
which is not exempted from state
taxation under federal law. Also the
Kentucky enactment making rural
electric cooperatives' subject to ad
valorem and franchise taxes, and
the Mississippi property tax exemp
tion for slai Kilter houses and curing
plants. The increase in Rhode Is

plants and distributors by an addi

Flea Development Is
Similar to Other Insects
Fleas have four stages in their
development similar to many other
insects. However, people seldom
realize this fact The Immature
stages of the flea are spent in dry
loose soil, similar to that found in
cracks In the floor or under the
porch of a house. The young flea or
larva feeds on organic matter and
doesn't bite or feed on fresh blood.
In fact, it doesn't look anything like
an adult flea. It is about one-fourth
of an inch long, very slender, with
a brown head and white body.
Fleas may be controlled in the
yard with one part of 40 per
cent nicotine sulphate in 150 parts
of water to which has been added
enough soup to cloud the water.
They may also be controlled by
sprinkling creosote, crude petro
leum or used oil about the areas in
which they are breeding. Fleas in
the home may be controlled by clos
ing the doors and windows In the
infested room and spraying liberally
with a household fly spray.

Russian experiments in using ani
mal blood for transfusion to human
patients have proved so successful
that some hospitals now have spe
cial herds of cows for that purpose,
reports the Soviet information bu
reau. Injections of 100 to 200 cubic centi
meters of cows' blood at a time
have a positive effect on badly
wounded men, accelerating healing,
raising vitality, improving appetite
and sleep, and curing avitaminosis.
The special herds of "donor" cows
are fed chiefly on alfalfa, which
contains a high percentage of vita
In one hospital 1,000 Uteri of blood
were obtained from cattle during the
past year, each "donor" supplying
three to four liters twice monthly.
Experiments have shown that ani
mals can safely give over 20 liters
of blood per month.
Ladders permanently located
should be fastened securely at both
top and bottom. The top should pro
ject at least four feet above the
landing to which It leads. Always
prop or brace a long ladder at the
middle, to prevent bend or sway;
unusually long ladders should be
braced at intervals of 10 to 12 feet
Ladders that are nailed to a wall
should stand at least eight inches
from the wall to allow room for
Arm footage on the rungs. Two lad
ders Joined together to obtain addi
tional reach should overlap at least
six feet; the spliced ends fastened
substantially; the center of the com
bined span braced firmly to build
ing or ground.
Broken or rickety ladders are a
liability; adequate repairs an asset.
Keep every ladder In prime condi
tion; discard those which are rotting
or which cannot be repaired And
then, there is the equally important
matter of how to use a ladder for
the conservation of life and limb-
Don't sacrifice the free use of both
hands because you have a load to
carry. A Arm grip on side rails
means a better grip on safety. Lift
ing heavy weights by rope or block
and tackle Is the sensible way.
Adverse weather conditions are
considered the principal cause tor
premature seed bolting of plants for
the reason that, in some seasons,
there will be practically pone of
this trouble and in others It is very
widespread. Excessive and contin
ued rains and long periods of cold,
foggy weather, followed by sudden
short periods of hot weather in the
early spring, are generally blamed
tor causing plants to go to seed.
There must be other factors besides
adverse weather which cause seed
bolting because some fields show
practically no trouble. It seems
quite certain that the variety of seed
may be a contributing factor. For
example, if growers plant a summer
variety of cabbage or celery in the
winter time, they may have much
more trouble from seeding than if
they use a standard winter variety.
