FORCE COLLECTION OF TAXES NOW The lime set by the city for paying current year's taxes or making arrangements for their payment bo that drastic steps will not be taken, has passed and at the regular mcietlng of the city council this morning City Solicitor Ball was given inatructiona to proceed'with whatever steps were necessary to enforce collection, A list of delinquents will be handed him today. Two methods -will be used as he deems best, distraint and suit. Hundreds of suits are expected to be filed in the local courts within a few days. The city council this morning received a letter from the provincial government approving its action In providing for the collection of a special schooVtakot $4 on all male citizens over 21 years of age who have been resident in tho city over one month and arc not assessed on the last revised assessment roll. Asked if the payment of thia tax would give those paying who are not on the voters' list a vote on school elections, City Solicitor Ball said it did not.-Mayor Hardlo expressed the opinion that payment of the tax would entitle the person paying to a vote. He said it was tazatioon without representation unless the vote were granted, and that is a bad principle. It is likely the council will take the matter up and arrange to give thoss paying the $4 tax a vote. Capt. A. E. L. Shand, formerly station agent of .the C.N.R. at Dauphin, iias been awarded the Military Cross. Your Bath You will find an Ivory Soap bath difftrtnt!^i\vary works up instantly into a thick, Soft, copious lather which spreads easily over the body and does not dry on the skin; It rinses easily; no soap remains in the pores. The body glows after the "drying; off" but does not shine because there is no unsaponiiicd oil in Ivory. Your skin never smarts or burns after an Ivory Soap bath. Instead, you have a feeling of delightful exhilaration. -An added advantage of Ivory jin the bath is that it floats and is always within reach. You are not likely to slip on it in getting out of the tub. A IVORY SOAP pure Mai* In (he Ptoettr ik Gamhle Jaetniti at Bamilton, Ctntda Made canada by the Mile- ^ Any riian will admit' that 9 teggs at 45 cents are higheclrprked than 12 eggs at 55 cents. ^'^^ Yet, beGause the first cost is lower, many dealers offer tares^ that render only 70% or 80% of the service that good tires render. That's not economy. It comes pretty close to criminal n^igence in wasting labor and materiaL VTires should be jttdged by the cost'per-inile, Building^es is a complicated job. A multitude ofy raw materials mjiist be judged, i To make good tires, e^pien-sive machinery must be used. A vast number of slqlled men must be employed. Big investment and experienced organization are necessary to do these things. And without these resources, tire quality must suffer., That-Goodyear does consistently produce good tires is proved by Goodyear sales. Mfnerists bi^more^ Goodyear ' Tires than other other hraml in the world: We could easily make less costly and therefore lower - priced t ires with smooth or rough trefads. But you would miss the lower cost-pcr-miie and satisfaction which thosemotorists now enjoy who l^ave made Goodyear the best-selling tire in the'world: 951 55 1869 ;
