It la welt-known th.it a garage, whore, olla, grease and ch oline urn kept, creates a flro hazard greater than tho averago building. In thn uggregntn however Ilia losses In connection with tho above named flrea could not havo amounted to any groat amount.

Thero was no attempt made to so- grafo tho tax when the ticket.) wete sold, because tho daneon wero not given for profit and, post officers believed, tho receipts wero exempt from tax.

I .told them that rather than havo nny controversy with tho federal officers that the post would pay tho tax under pro tost."
