this Tax
                          W OULD you like to get out of paying one tax that
    By A. L. Stone       on the average amounts to $200.00 . . . I know you
    State Weed           would I
    Commissioner
                            Figures show that weeds take about this amount
each
                          year from the pockets of the average Wisconsin
farmer.
                          The weed tax for the entire state totals to the
tremendous
                          sum of $40,000,000 a year. But this is one tax
we really
                          don't have to have to pay. We can lower and even
stop
                          paying most of it.
                             Now's the time to get after Canada thistle,
quack
                          grass, and other weeds. Soon they'll go to seed
and
                          reproduce thousands, yes millions, of other weeds
which
                          will spread on the farm and cut down your yields,
make
                          hard work harder, raise your cost of planting,
cultivating,
                          and harvesting. Let's get the weeds before they
get us.
                             Men who have been studying weeds for years all
agree
                          that the best time to cut them is at blossom time.
At
                          that time the seeds have not been formed and the
roots
                          are in their weakest condition. So get out today
with the
                          mower or old bramble scythe and stage a slaughter.
                                     Another article on weeds by Mr.
                                     Stone will appear in an early issue.
