A postponedtax sale in theoffice of the county treasurer Monday morning Was characterizedby apa theticbidding One person who is one of the veterans in the farm loan businessin the county said it was the most quiet tax sale he had seen for 35 years The lack of bidding which has been spirited at tax sales during the pastyears was partly due to the absence of several persons who were in the habit ofbidding heavily oa all forms of real estate This heavy bidding that has been a part of every tax sale the past decade sejrved to drive out the ordi nary investor These ordinary ihves torsnow have an opportunity to get back in according to local real e tate dealers who point out that large amount of good property ha delinquent taxes This incom amounts to 8 per cent penalty an 8per cent a year If
