8TATKMENT TO HARNKY
COUNTY TAXPAYKKH,
Aa tins is tax paying time I thought
it appropriate to say a few worrt.i in
regard to taxes and assessments.
Equal and just taxation Is the
hardest problem before the peoplu to
day. It is a problem that has never
been solved but we are in hopes it
some day will be. The fundament
al purpose of taxation is ta provide
revenue which, It will be agreed,
ought to be raised as equally, con
veniently and economically as possi
ble. We are all aware of the fact,
that today these principles havo not
been achieved, but until they are
and put Into aclon, It Is evident, we
will have to abide by the system now
in operation.
Taxes are a debt that very few of
us meet as agreeably as we do other
obligations. We all know without
taxation our local, state and national
governments could not exist. The
trouble Is, we look upon taxet as
money, being spent without any rev
enue In return. Taxes, from one
point of view, are really a privilege.
Any person should appreciate tlin
ract mat ttiey nave property upon
which to pay taxes.
It is the county tllisor's duty to
make assessments and to place vail ei
thereon. He ha
levying taxes only to see that the dif
ferent tax levying bodies make their
levied within the limitations allowed
by- la.w. Some times taxpayers are
of the opinion that the assessor i.i re-
i ousibie for their taxes being high
or course if the valuation on your
property has previously been lower
than adjoining property of the same
(lass, the assessor, in that cnse mny
be the cause of an iucreabe In your
taxes.
It Is the assessor's intention to
place equal valuations ou all i lasses
ii propertj of the same nature and ot
similar locations, which is according
to a.ssesmtnt laws. We all are sub
to mistakes but I; re the!

State Senator Tom Derry of
8pencervllle, Ohio, Is usually
back ot any legislative measure
advocated by women. The reason
is plainly shown In the above
photograph. Berry claims the
family suffrage championship of
the land. Ten daughters to assist
mother can usually talk him out
on any purely masculine argu
ment he may make. Ten visits

of wealth, etc.. and being asked to
give details of the program he ex
plained that money must be abol
ished. There must be a substitute, of
course, were we not to return to the
system of exchange and barter. There
would be a certain kind of currency,
bUt It could not be accumulated. A
man who did auy work would get a
ticket at the end of each working day
representing his remuneration. It
would have a date stamped upon It,
and its validity would end in 48
hours.
He could either spend it in that
time or lose it. and in this way the
saving of money would he Impossi
ble. There would therefore ho no
capital.

It is equally easy to Imagine any
kind of systematizutlon under Bol

"On account of the hot weather,"
the boy says, "I kept my pig a few
days after the contest ended, and
when I butchered him he weighed
267 pounds on foot and 227 Mi
pounds when dressed. He dressed
out 86 per cent. I received 25 ceuts
a pound, which made me a total of
$66.87.
"I figured that the cheep cost of
the i rodinitioii was due to three
things: First, the high protelu con
tent of the concentrates; second,
good health of the pig. due to great
variety of feed and sanitary condi
tion of the lot and sleeping quar
ters; third, the pig consumed it large
amount of forage, such hi rape, thus
reducing the amount Of high-priced
feeds."

crow up to health and strength It

ficiency and power.
It is our manifest duty to take
whatever means we can to '-ring
about the most favorable conditions
for the health of growing children.
That as a nation we have failed la
mentably in this respect Is shown by
the number of men In the selective
draft who were rejected for physical
Imperfection. Thirty-three per cent
of our young men one out of every
three were below the normal phy
sical condition which makes u man
fit for army service.
Many of these young men were
subject to physical disabilities which
could readily have been prevented or
remedied If they had been recognised
and properly dealt with in the sub
ject's childhood.
A thorough physical examination
of each child of school age should be
made twice a year. This would lead
to the detection of muny incipient
troubles and their cure. The lime
Hill come when we shall seethe ser
vices of a doctor and nurse available

The result will be healthier, hap

Why the Essex Motor Car will be
the sensation for the coming season
Every part and every detail of the Eaaex con
struction is of proved (worth. It was designed
and built by some of the foremost engineer of
America, the same men whose genius produced
the Super-Six. Many points of superiority in
the Super-six which have proved themselves in
years of service, have been incorporated into
the Essex. The engine, only twenty- nine
inches long, cast in one block with detachable
head, readily develops more than fifty horse,
power. Long life is assured by the ample pro
portions of the counterbalanced crank shaft,
supported by three large bearings.
