COLUMBUS, June most im- portant decision was handed down by the supreme court today when it ruled that the Smith one percent law passed by the last legislature does not include levies for sinking funds and interest on bonded indebtedness It is believed this will allow larger cities that the one per cent levy was not sufficient to meet their expenses to pull through, incident- ally it provides a loophole for making the total levy considerably more than ten mills in any city. The test case was taken up by the city of Toledo and officials of Cleve- land, Columbus and Cincinnati were also interested in it. The effect of the decision is to lim- it the levy for ordinary affairs to ten mills 'but to allow an additional levy for sinking fund and inteiest. The decision will now enable all municipalities to go ahead and issue i bonds for municipal improvements 'fegardless of the amount of taxes available from the one per cent levy. Attorney plied to the supreme court for a re- hearing of the case in which the court recently held that physicians cannot be required to report birth statistics. The decision practically put the vital statistics department of the secretary of stae's office ou of business. The court adjourned this morning until fall and so there will be no consideration of the application until then.

IS SAID TO BE WEALTHY With Young Girl Friend She Plans To Go Elsewhere To Meet Aviator FORMER BANKER IS CONVICTED BY JURY CIRCUS THEN AND NOW Most people who saw the trains of cars unloading, the handling of hundreds of horses and wagons, the parade of performers, bands and animals in the circus today have no conception of the beginnings of tfiis great American institution. In the early days, the fancy wagons which now do service for pa- rade display also transported the "sftow" on its journeys from town to town. The traveling was done at night, necessarily, the long and hard journey beginning as soon as the wagons could be loaded after the night performance had closed. It is with a description of such a night trip that the gripping story, "The Rose in the opens. The roads were wretched and it was a most unpleasant journey.
