is to goto the store and tee how much i
he owes; as Oils Is the first thing he
wants lo etc pay aia debts. The mer
chants say white people could not
have done better. Everything has

WORKING FOR FERRIES
Messrs. C. B. Hallmark, of Wtaid
port; L. C. Mowery, of Slletx; and
S. T. Loudon,' of Eddyvllle; were In
the city last week as members of the
County Budget board, and while here
In that capacity they interviewed the
merchants and professional men of
this city with regard to the establish
ing of ferries at Newport and Toledo,'
for crossing the bay.
Their plan was that the county
should put ln about $60 per month 1
for a ferry here and a like amount for
one at Newport, and that the city of
Toledo put in $25 per month and the
city of Newport $25.
A majority of those interviewed
favored the establishing of ferries to
connect up the north and south parts
of the county.
The Leader believes that ferries
, should be established, and arrange
ments be made whereby people
and vehicles should be ferried free on
one or two days weekly and a nominal
charge made the balance of the time.

U. S. GROSS DEBT
The gross debt of the United States
oil September 30,' less the balance on
band, waa about $23,166,000,000. That
figure Is $486,000,000 less than the
debt on the same date In 1920, and
$2,312,000,000 less than the peak of
the war debt, reached on August 31,

steadily returning to a sound finan
