practical an well, m.nnncr in
which it could lie done would lie
to puss a law requiriiiK every
propurty owner to place Inn own
vuluo upon Ihh property, which
valuation riiunt be made each
year, and under penalty oi a
heavy fine thu owner could not
dispose of the property at a
price in uxcchm of that placet
upon it by the owner when the
valuation wax given to the an

excess price be secured, the ex

county funds. All UMtfutiamunlR
for laxos should be bailed on the
valuation turned in by the own
ers, and all property should be
taxed at its full valuation. This
would make the mill rate lower,
and the taxes no greater to tin
propurty owner whose property
is now assessed at HO per cent of
its run! va nation. IT neon
could not sell their property at a
irruatur price than than auMessed

property would be solved, am
the small properly owner, who
is taxed out of proportion to tlx

largely benefit. Under such a
law the prices paid for land
would not be kept secret, am

It might be argued that under
such a law those who did not
desire to sell properly might
place valuations at a ridiculous
ly low nguroM, nut tins could in
overcome by compelling all to
pay taxes on a valuation not
lower than the propurty cost, or

No man is entitled to more lam

There is nothing bidden about
the advertiser, lie stands up for

reputation, for his town, lie
want everybody to know him,
to know bis methods of business
and bin manner of treating cus

do business with bint. Having
spent much money making his
name known, he cannot nll'ord to
have it tarnished, and he will go
much more than half way in an

There may bo some demur on tho
part of parties having no child

much reason to rebel against

It is a sign of progress, and it is

The Best Light
At The Lowest Cost
ELECTRIC LIGHT is the most suitable for homes,
oflices, shops and other places needing light.
Electricity can be used in any quantity, large
or small, thereby furnishing any required
amount of light. Furthermore, electric lamps
can be located in any place, thus affording any
desired distribution or light.
No other lamps possess these qualifications, there
fore it is not surprising that electric lamps are
rapidly replacing all others in modern establishments.
