Well, maybe you ;;evtr stopt to think of it but there are a number of citizens of these two counties who do that very thing and they don't do half as much kicking about it as some of the fellows who don't pay nearly so much. But then, there are few of us who wouldn't be perfectly willing to pay their assessment if we had the property they have!  Recently The Ledger-Press made the statement that the late W. C Smith of Williamsport was the second richest man in Warren county, the statement being based on a remark to that effect made by Mr. Smith himself, only a few months ago. In that connection he asserted that Winfield Fleming, of West Lebanon, was entitled to that honor. This may, of course, be true, altho the claim is disputed by other residents of the county, but the fact remains that Mr. Smith was the largest tax payer in the county, paying nearly four times as much toward the revenue of the county as any other man. Examination of the tax duplicate shows that his taxes for this year amounted to the enormous sum of $7,652 79. Second in the list is John F Judy, proprietor of the famous horse, vehicle, and implement market at Judyville, who pays Sl.Wti.ll, Since the partition of the Smith estate there are still ten taxpayers in the county who pay more than a thousand dollars a year, including Herman \V Briggs. who is a resident of Attica The list includes T Cor Fleming, who pays $l,t'>I7 6l», Wil-Cioodwine 4'.t, Wintield Fleming  $l,v;i.sf..
