This is Tax=Paying Time.
Sheriff Rader and bis deputies
have been unusually busy during the
past week, many taxpayers availing
themselves of rhe opport polity to get
the three per ceut rebate for piompt
payment. Considerably over half of
the total amount on the tax roll has
;ilready been paid. This privilege
expired on the 15th.
Taxes will be delinquent after the
first Monday In April, when a penalty
of 10 per ceut and interest at the rate
of 12 per cent a year will be charged.
A number of people are chagrined
to find their taxes higher than usual.
This should not be surprising,as state
and the county school taxes are nearly
double what they were last year,
thanks to the last Legislature, which
made a number of extravagant appro
priations. As a matter of fact, the
tax for county purposes is two mills
less than it was the year before, so
that those administering county af
fairs cannot be charged with this in
