HIE FARMERS' CIRCLE. (BY ONE WITHIN IT.) The plague of wasps in Essex Is growing worse, and bands of men are being organised in various places to destroy the insects. At Great Baddow, near Chelmsford, where sad havoc has been played with the fruit crop, seven gardeners have, during the last few evenings, destroyed upwards of 300 nests. A few days ago a horse, valued at £35. belonging to Mrs Longrigg, Slapestone House, Battlebarrow, Appleby, was grazing in a field near Bandley, when it came in contact with a couple of wasps' nests. The horso getting its head near one of the nests, the wasps at once swarmed cn to the animal and stung it in a frightful manner. Its head was swollen very much. The poor beast has since succumbed. Several serious attacks on both men and horses are reported from Cambridgeshire. SHEEP SALES. The sheep sales of the present season are sufficiently far advanced to enable us to form i tairiy reliable opinion of the trade for breeding i nd store stock. In all probability tle demand and prices run pret y much as was gene; allv anticipated. The season is iei her the b st nor the worst on record. In fact, the markets are quite as remunerative as the s-ta e of agriculture in other depart- u-Miis cl sely allied with the sheep trade warrant us in expecting. At most of the ¡t;reut sale- and lettings of rams, private and public, very good returns have been obtained The best dabs of pedigreed sheep have, as usual, suffered least from the depressed Mtate of matters agricultural. A little touch of fancy rarely fails to slacken the purse- strings of the enthusiastic breeder, and this year the fancy element has been pressed in almost its usual force. It is safe to draw this conc lusion when we find prices for rams approach or run into the three figures, and those for ewes exceed the single Several instances* of such liberality on the part of buyers are forthcoming, more especially in regard to the popular Shropshire, and a few breeders have been fortunate enough to re- ceive an average of over 20 guineas for their year's crop of rams. The majority of aver- ,I e for mis class of sheep still keep into double figures, while many ewe averages r,u:g • fro u taree to five or even more guin- eas. So lo g as these prices obtain, pedigree 1, e(i p I ar, i, in, cannot fail to hold a foremost position n Biitish agriculture. For ordinary classes of sheep, store and breeding, prices remain at about last year's moderate figures, varying slightty according to the prospects of winter keep in the various localities. PRESERVING ROOTS. Turnip storing is in some parts, by virtue of the expensive and tender nature of the crop, coupled with the cold and exposed character of the locality, a matter of great concern. In fact, the securing of the root crop is looked upon as one of the chief oper- ations that fall to be performed, after the corn and potatoes have been safely removed from the fields. Where such is the enforced practice the means of preserving the roots against frosts, decay, etc., has formed the subject of considerable inquiry and observa- tion But, as in aunt cases of the kind. no one definite method has been decided upon. On different farms different methods have been successfully tried with the somewhat perplexing result that several metliodd are recommended. Swedes are generally found to preserve their substance and freshness longer than the common turnip. Therefore, although both can be kept quite fresh for several months, it would be better to arrange that the turnipR be consumed first, letting the swedes stand over for use in spring. The storing operation usually begins about the middle or end of November, and may be prosecuted on every suitable day thereafter until it has been completed. The tops and tails should be removed, and the bulbs either thrown into heaps of cartload size on the field, and covered with earth to the depth of two to threo inches, according to the liability of the district to frosts; or carted into long rows or pits at the steading, or wherever desired. In the latter case, straw slightly blended with earth is frequently employed for covering, but earth alone may be used. In either case the roots must be laid in in a thoroughly dry state, otherwise SiI. cess need not be looked to. We have k I" wn roots to be successfully preserved with the tops on if stored in a thoroughly drv condition. There are several other sys- tems in force, but none are more effective than those we have mentioned. If you wish to protect the crop on the ground for sheep, that is done by running the plough along the drill so that the fur- row is turned over on, or close enough to, the roots to cover them. The tops need not (us covered, as they, if ordinarily rank, act m a safe preventive against attacks of frost. a n.v farmers prefer this method of protect- g he entire crowd. They claim that it is ighly effective, while it is speedy and inex- pensiYd. The roots, however, would require o be dug out for the sheep, so as to save the animals disagreeable labour and avoid probable waste. L I
FAKMER8 AND ASSESSMENTS TO LOCAL RATES. The Board of Agriculture has issued the following important circular:— The Board of Agriculture think it may be useful to circulate some information as to the method of procedure to be adopted by occupiers of land who may seek to obtain a reduction of their assessment to the poor rate and other local rates, on the ground that their premises have been valued at too high a figure, or the valuation maintained at a level above the actual value. The Board desire therefore to bring under the notice of agriculturists the following memorandum, prepared by the Local Government Board, which indicates briefly the principles upon which assessments are made and the steps which may be taken where an assessment is objected to, to obtain a reduction of the amount. HERBERT GABDVEB, President of the Board of Agriculture. 4, Whitehall Place, S.W., August, 1893. MEMORANDUM. Outside of London the basis for the assessment of the poor rate, and practically of every other local rate levied endear thm' general law, is, where the Union Assess- ment Acts are in force, the valuation list made under those Acts. There are only 13 places in England and Wales, outside London, where the Union Assessment Acts are not in force. I.— As to the Poor Bate. The poor rate is assessed upon the net annual, or rateable, value of premises, as fixed by the valuation list. The rateable value is arrived at by making certain de- ductions from the gross estimated rental of • he premises, which is the rent at which the property might reasonably be expected to et from year to year, if the tenant paid all usual tenant's rates and taxes, and tithe commutation rentcharge if any. It is not necessarily the same as the rent actually paid for the property. The deductions to be made from the gross [estimated rental in order to arrive at the rateable value, are the probible average tm ua cost of the repairs and insurance, and anv other expenses that may be necessary < man a u the) property in a state to com- maud a, rent equal to the gross estimated renta It a pfiisoi considers that his aseeisment to h 1 peor r t is too high, he must, in the first p I; ce, give notice to the assessment con m t ee aud to the overseers that he object; to the valuation list on which the rate is based. The notice must be in writ- ing, and must specify the grounds of the objection. It may be served on the assess- me nt committee by being left at the office of the clerk to the board of guardians, or sent by post addressed to the committee at such clerk's office, or delivered personally to the clerk of the assessment committee (i.e. clerk to the guardians) or at his usual place of abode. On notice of the objection being given, a day will be appointed by the assessment committee for the hearing of the objection, and on euch hearing the committee have full power to call for and amend the valua- tion list. If they do amend it, they must give notroe of the amendment to the over- seeis, who are thereupon to alter the poor rate cur ent at the date of the notice of objection; so that, if on the hearing of an objection made by a farmer or other person against i is a sessment, the assessment com- mittee reduce the assessment, the obj-ector will on y be called upon to pay on the reduced amount the rate current at the time when be m do his objection. The reduction will taki effect also as regards any rate made subsequently. Supposing that the objector fails to obtain from the committee such relief in the matter as he considers he is entitled to, the only course open to him is to appeal to the next practicable special or quarter sessions against the rate unless he has first objected to the valuation list in the manner above referred to, and has failed to obtain relief from the assessment committee. J If he appeals against the rate he must j give 21 days' notice in writing previous to the holding of the sessions to which the appeal is to be made, of his intention to appeal, and the grounds thereof, to the I assessment committee and the overseers. The justices on the hearing of an appeal against the poor rate are empowered to ¡ amend the rate by altering the sum therein charged on any person, or in any other manner which may be pecessary for giving such relief as they think just; and in certain I cases they may quash the rate. If the rate I is amended, the valuation list must be altered by the assessment committee in con- formity with the amendment. If the decision of the justices in special sessions is against the appellant, he may I carry the appeal to general or quarter sessions. But in the vast majority of instances in which persons who have been over-assessed take action in order to get their assessment reduced, no appeal against the poor rate is necessary: the relief desired is obtained by the simple process of objec- tion to the valuation list before the assess- ment committee. W ifh respect to places in which the Union Assessment Committee Acts are not in force, it may be stated generally that subject to the provisions of any local Act. the prooe- dure for obtaining a reduction of assessment is by appeal against the poor rate to special or quarter sessions. If.-As to Hates other than the Poor Hates. The principal rates other than the poor rate which are levied under the general law, are the borough rate, the county rate, the highway rate, the general district rate, and certain rates levied for the sanitary purposes in rural sanitary districts. When the whole parish is liable to con- tribute to the borough rate or county rate, the sum required is paid out of the poor rate. Where only part of the parish is liable, a separate rat) is levied in such part in the same manner as the poor rate, and the same observation applies to sums required for th expenses of school boards and burials boards. All these rates are based practi- cally on the valuation list and it would seem that if the assessment committee amend the valuation list after hearing an objection to the list, any of these other rates should be correspondingly amended without any formal appeal against it. As regards the highway rate, it is ex- pressly provided that where any valuation list has been amended by the assessment committee on objection, the committee shall give notice of such amendment to the sur- veyor of highways, or other person author- ised to make and levy the highway rate, w ho shall there alter the then current high- way rate accordingly. 4 1 As regards the general district rate levied I by an urban sanitary authority, it has been held by the Queen a Bench Division of the High Court of Justice that where, subse- quently to the making and demand of a general district rate, the valuation list upon which the rate was based was amende by the assessment committee by the reduction of the assessment of particular premises, there was shown, upon a summons for non- payment of the full amount of the rate as assessed upon the premises, sufficient cause for non-payment of eo much of the rate as was assessed on the amount of rateable value in excess of that to which the assess- ment committee had reduced the assessment, although there had been no appeal against the general district rate. The sanitary authority are empowered to reduce the sum at which any person has been assessed in the rate, if he has been over-rated, i.e., if he has been assessed on a higher rateable value tha-i that entered in the valuation list in respect of his property. If, howtvar, a person asse s'd in any of the above ratei considers that he is over- rated, and is unable, in any other way, to obtain such relief as he considers himself entitled to, he may appeal aapinst the rate. In the caie of a highway rate, he may appeal to the justices at the next practicable general or quarter sessions. For the purposes of such an appeal notice in writing must. within 14 days after the making of the rate, be given to the surveyor of highways, waywarden, or urban sanitary authority, as the case may be, of :he inten- tion to appeal, and the notice must he accompanied by a statement of the g oun Is of appeal. On the hearing of the appeal, the justices may amend or, if necessai-y, ma., quash the rate. An appeal against a general district rate lies to ttie next court of quart-r sessions held not less than 21 days after the demand of the rate. Fourteen days' n t p of the appeal must be given to the urban sanitary authority, and the notice must state the ground of appeal. In the case of separate rates levied by overseers to meet expenses of rural sanitary authorities, the same appeal li8 TO special or quarter sessions as in the case 0: the poor rate. Separate borough rates a id spi a --ate rates to meet contributions ivqu ed b v a county council may also be ? pp u 1 d ag dnst in like manner as a poor ratr-, and the s. m remark applies to sepai ate lates 0 meet tne expenses of a school board. Appeals fcgiinst rates levied un.de • thi> Lighting ana Watching Act, 1833, n ay "be made to gentril or quarter sessions, suoje to the same provisions as appeals against poor rates. III.-Special Assessments of Land not occvpied by Buildings. In the case of three of the rates mentioned in Part 11. of this memorandum, the law provides for the assessment of land not covered by buildings, at a less rate than property consisting of buildings, etc. These three rates are the general district rate in an urban sanitary district, a separate rate for special sanitary expenses in a rural sanitary district, and the lighting rate. Occupiers of land used as arable, meadow, or pasture ground only, or as woodlands, allotments, orchards, market gardens, or nursery grounds, are assessable to a general district rate in respect of such land, in the proportion of one-fourth part only of the rateable value according to the valuation list; and in the case of a separate rate for special sanitary expenses, they are, accord- ing to circumstances, either to be assessed in respect of one-fourth part only of the rate in the pound payable in respect of houses and other property. Occupiers of houses, buildings, and pro- perty (other than land) are required to pay, in respect of their assessment to the lighting rate, a sum in the £ three times that paid by occupiers of land. So that, if the rate on other property is 6i in the L, occupiers of land have to pay only 2d in the £ Failure, in rating such occupiers, to allow the partial exemption for which the Acts provide, would be a good ground of appeal against any of the three rates above men tioned.

A MANLY MESSAGE TO Boys.-Lorcl Charles Beresford is devotedly attached to boys, and does all in his power for the middies whom he meets on service.

Tbib h my invariable advice to boys, and I can't better it. No matter what results tell the truth- even if it gets you into a row, speak the honest unvarnished truth like a man. Never be afraid to say straight out, I did it." They may take my word for it that the boy who has the pluck to get into a row often turns out the best, for it takes some pluck to get into a row. Then the next thing is, Be utterly unselfish." Nothing but unhappines* can r suit if a person is selfish. Everything he does will be misunderstood and misconstruded.

MANCHESTER, THURSDAY.—The wheat trade his been without improvement during the past week, and a further reduction in values must be reported. To-day's market presented no new feature; English wheat 3d to 6d per quarter and foreign Id to 2d per cental lower. Flour barely steady. Peas Id per cental cheaper. Beans receded 3d per quarter. Oats and barley un- changed. Maize has declined about Id per cen- tal since last Thursday. LONDON, MONDAY.—The cargo market is some- what firmer, and red wheats for shipment are occasionally held for higher rates while Russian descriptions their is more inquiry. Maize has been firmly held with more inquiry, but closed quiet. Barley is firm and occasionally 3d. better. Oats quiet and unaltered. Beans inactive. At Mark Lane there was a fair attendance, but trade was extremely slow and discourageing to holders who in many instances were disposed to accept easier terms. English new crop wheat was in fair supply at full rates, and there was a moderate demand; old crop quiet. Foreign wheat was steadier than on Friday, but prices are fully 6d. worse on the week. Flour ruled slow at recent currencies. Maize owing to large arrivals, was about 3d cheaper. Barley was in limited request at late rates. Oats ruled 3d. to 6d. cheaper con- sequent on liberal supplies. Beans and peas quiet and nominally unchanged. CATTLE. LIVERPOOL, MONDAY.—The supply of cattle was larger than last week, and of sheep and lambs smaller. The demand was slow for each prices irregular, and generally without alteration for all classes of stock. Beef, first class, 6&d.; second class, Sid.; thit-d class, 4Jd. per lb. Mutton and lamb, 71d. to 5d per lb. Live-weight cattle, 36s. to 23s per cwt. At market, 1,945 cattle and 12,837 sheep and lambs. LONDON, MONDAY.—The total imports of for- eign stock into London last week amounted to 1.849 head. In the corresponding period of last year we received 1,014; in 1891, 12, 886; in 1890, 12,309; and in 1889, 8,312. At Liverpool were received 630 beasts from Baltimore, 912 beasts from Boston, 1,683 beasts from Montreal, and 141 beast from Norfolk, and at Southampton, 5 beasts from Jersey and Guernsey. The cattle trade has been quiet and without any special feature. Sup- plies were about the average, and were sufficient. With reference to beasts, a fair number were offered, and the general condition was somewhat improved. Business progressed quietly, and prices remained much about the same. The best Scots, Welsh runts, and Herefords made 4s 8d to 43 lOd.; choice Lincolns. 4s. 6d to 4s 8d and heavy beasts, 4s. to 4s 8d.; and heavy beasts, 4s. to 4s 4d. per 8lb. Secondary qualities met a slow sale. The sheep pens were fairly well filled. The trade was quiet at about late currencies. DEAD MEAT. JJOSTDON, MONDAY.—This morning the supply was only moderate, but the demand being very limited the market was not cleared. Prices were not firm and the trade closed with a tendency to lower rates.

WOOL. BRADFORD, THURSDAY-.—Owing to the depress- ing influence of the coal famine, and the state of the American market, the demand is quiet to-day, though for what business is doing there is no quotable change of prices. Lustre descriptions are still most sought after. Merinos are quiet. BRADFORD, MONDAY.—Though actual business in this market is still unquestionably slow and dissapointing, there is no real depression, and traders still thirjk tha- the lull in the market is only due to temporary causes. The coal strike is undoubtedly influencing business, and on change to-day it has been made the excuse by spinners for declining engagements. On the other hand country advices show that the wool trade is better outside than it is here, and there is really no pros pect of values giving way. To-day's quotations are unchanged all round. Lustres are the wools most wanted, but for merinos there is less stagna- tion. and consequently some hope that the bottom has been touched. Mohair is quiet but steady, and for alpaca some business is passing. The yarn branch is no quieter, and hopes are entertain- ed that a revival will be seen shortly, especially as merchants for a month or two past have done very little in the shape of new business. In pieces there are prospecti of a better home trade for t be winter, but the export branch is still unsatisfactory Specially the American, which is osnallj Br: ftwd's best customer for aduMcI goofr.
