blood pure. Those who take SIMMONS

set all the benefits of a mild and pleasant
laxative and tonic that purines the blood
and strengthens the whole system. And
more than this: SIMMONS l lVER REGU

and healthy, and when the Liver is in
good condition you find yourself free from
Malaria, Biliousness, Indigestion, Sick
ieadache and Constipation, and rid of
that worn out and debilitated feeling,

Good digestion and freedom from stomach

You can set Iowa down west of the

In the matter of the raise on the ns
sessment roll of Linn county, for 1895,
made by the state board of equaliza
tion, It was ordered by the court that
the clerk of Linn county let the tax
roll statid as equalized by the county
The county court has fixed t lie tax
levy for Linn county for 1895 at 15
mills. This is distributed as follows:
For state purpose), 4.8 mills; county,
61-6 mills; school, 5 mills; Indigent
soldiers, 1-13 of a mill.
The levy is one mill higher than last
Jiear, but the assessed value of property
Is lower, so the tax to be paid will be
about the same, or even a little less.
The valuation for 1895 is $1,333,515, but
it was raised by the board to $1,744,
502. The couuty, however, will simply
pay the state taxes' on the raised as
sessment and collect county laxes
according to tbe origiual roll. A total
revenue of $108,889 will be the result
of (he levy, whioh is about $20 less
than last year, Tbe state tax will be
$35,733.31. About $40,000 is required
for county purposes. Tbe levy is as
low as could be expected, considering
the raise made by the state board.
