Bicycle Taxcollector E. H. Cowing
has received a lot of new tags, but has
discovered that there are but very few
wheels now being used on which taxes
have not been paid. The taxcollector
claims that many people, who had
wheels, have now put up the same for
the winter, and it is difficult to levy
upon them. All of this trouble is
caused by the tardiness of the firm, who
had the contract of furnishing the tags
Mr. Cowing says that he will order a
thousand tags from Chicago in Febru
ary. Later needed supplies can be se
cured on three week's notice.
