Item of Interest to the Taxpayer of Josephine County
From the Various County Officle.1. t fc t
To Care For County Poor,
At the last meeting of the board of
County Commissioners, steps were
taken, looking to the building of
"Connty Home" for the indigent.
The matter bas been left in the bands
of Judge Jewell, who is taking much
pride in tbe matter, inaimuch as this
was one of the issues which he made
use of last campaign. In Tiew of
the fact that Josephine county tax
payers had been paying at tbe rate of
about fl'iOO per year, in caring for
the worthy poor of the county, be
believed that tbe amount won Id be
quite materially reduced and lie there

to do all in his power to have a per-

Judge Jewell tld the people that at
the end of tbe first four years the
county woo Id have the building all
paid for and that tbe expenses of
keeping the connty poor wonld in the
meautime have been reduced folly
one-half. As it is now, the poor are
kept all over the oouoty and tbe
connty physician often has to travel
quite ways and all places over two
miles requires that mileage shall be
allowed. Often there are case like
the man who was hurt by tbe train
and afterwards died. He was taken
to tbe hospital and It cost the county
folly $50. There have been five or
six snch cases sinoe Jndge Jewell took
office and he feels certain that tbe
new regime of having a place where
all the oounty charges can be looked
after together will prove to be both
economical and eminently satis
factory The Time to Make Kicks.
Connty Assessor W. II. Fallin Is
one of the busiest of oounty officials,
these days, for he is jnst winding np
the extension of the taxrolls, pre
paratory to submitting his work for
the Inspection of the oounty board of
equalization. That body will convene
Monday, October 21, as will be seen
from the official notice given to tbe
taxpayers ia another column of the
Courier. Mr. Fallin informs the
newsgatherer that the increase in
valuations would reach fully 1300,000
to $300,000 more than the total
amounted to last year. This will be
largely due to the increase in the
valuation of the railroad property aud
the timber lands. When the equaliza
tion hoard meets, then the dissatisfied
taxpayer has a chauce to register a
kick. Hat, judging by former years,
there is uot likely to be inauy pro
tests, for Mr. Fallin haa been doing
his work faithfully and well and few
complaiuts are therefore to be found.

One of the lmt ludicatious that
Josephine connty is growing is the
fact that the courthouse which has
been doing service these tuauy years
has bt'cu fouud to be altogether in
adequate for tbe transacting of the
county's busiueHS. Slowly but sorely
is the need 'or a larger building
becoming apparent and it is only a
quest inn of time when the new
structure will be forthcoming. At
preseut three of the most Important
offices, namely, that of school super
intendent, treasurer aud surveyor
have had to be givMi quarters in
other parts of the city. Treasurer
Taylor was located with ' the Model
Drug Store, while Superintendent
Savage and Surveyor Perkins have
each had rooms in the Masonic build
ing. But now the county .commis
sioners have made arrangements,
wherebv the said offiicals will here
after 1m located in the brick building
ituated across the street from tbe
court house grounds. This is as it
should be aud the uisve will be ap
preciated by taxpayers from all over
the coauty, who may have any occa
sion to visit these said officials.
"Better Wear WEARBETTER"
Mothers : there are two important things to be
considered when you buy children's clothes.
First, the quality of the earments are
they serviceable and practical are they
dressy and pretty and will they be be
coming to your children.
Second, the price are you getting the full
value for the money you pay.
To economical mothers who want the very
best clothes for their children at moderate
priceswe recommend Wearbetter garments.
These are the clothes that wear better look
i.V better fit better than any others.
