If joint tenants owning land claim a mortgage deduction of $1000 on the land jointly owned neither is entitled to any further deduction on lands of which each of the joint tenants is the sole owner. 3. Tenants in common Are entitled to Only one mortgage deduction of $10,00 on real estate owned As such because Only one exemption can be allowed for each property for the legislation did not contemplate separate exemptions or deductions from one property excepting to it in Case the tenant in common holds a separate record title to his undivided interest in said real estate and has executed a separate mortgage thereon he shall be entitled to his exemption As is by Law provided. In All questions of this character it is Well to keep the Vording of the Law in mind it provides for the deduction quot from the assessed valuation of mortgaged premises for that year and the amount of such valuation remaining after such deduction shall have been made shall form the basis for assessment and taxation for said real estate for said year quot the Holder of a life estate is not entitled to a mortgage deduction where the fee is held by some one else. Only the owner of the fee is entitled to a mortgage deduction. Very truly yours state Board of to commissioners. John j. Brown chairman. The tabloid Sermon written for the review Republic by the Rev.

Redman music orchestra quot joyriding quot Clarence Michaels Muic orchestra presentation of co. Supt. Harry Evans i Benediction music orchestra the purpose of a Sermon is to explain i ruminate or illustrate a passage of the Bible and show its application to a Man s every Day life and affairs. It s purpose is not to advertise the preacher s pet idea or work off his. Pet Peeve but Rathe to help the Bible to speak its message the Friend in need John i 68. Quot lord to whom shall we go thou Hast the words of eternal the disciples of Jesus appreciated a Man of High purpose and a True Friend when they saw one i though other men forsook the Christ they determined they were going to stick. People have often tried to Bow god out of the universe As a non essential but they have never been very successful. To try to deny that we have any need of god or to deny that any god exists is about As foolish As to deny that we have a body or that we need a body. Adversity exerts a powerful pressure to Bright people to their Knees. In times of peace and Prosperity religious Faith seems to be non essential. Under such circumstances praying and worship seem an in i necessary precaution and a bother. On a Calm sea Crew and passengers i May feel no need of god and May even scoff at religion but when the sky is Black and the wind shrieks through the rigging and the ship reels to and fro like a Drunken Man quot then quot says the psalmist quot they cry unto the lord in their trouble and he delivers them out of their is. 107 28. We never miss the water till the Well runs dry. It was predicted that the world War would Knock the Bottom out of religion. But the predictors were not at the front. They spun their theories complacently before the cozy fire. The War drove More peo pie to god quot than it drove away from Liim As the War literature shows i quot the boys who have been Over a there quot says lieutenant Pat o Brien quot have a new feeling about religion even though they May not talk much about it. I know i see Fellows going to Church now who i am certain never used to go there. Someone asked me the other Day if i Ever thought of praying when i was in a fight in the. Air. Yes i did it is so instinctive that it seems to me pretty Good proof that there is a supreme being to whom we naturally turn quot. The War Tore away much shallow thinking and Many false theories but it left standing the great realities religious Faith remained and came out even stronger. That fact presents no quot mystery. Soldiers at the front and folks Back Home stood appalled before this monster of War and turned to the Only Refuge left for the soul. They Felt like the disciples quot lord to whom shall we go habitual indifference to god is thou Hast the words of eternal moreover a tacit rejection of god help. Such an attitude is dangerous to the safety of society. To the German mind the humane teachings of Christ his demand far the rebirth of human nature in order to fit Hitman character for the. Spirit of brotherly love and Mutual helpfulness was utterly distasteful. They saw it was in direct opposition to the spirit of militarism. They saw it would hamper their purpose of world Conquest. So they like the pharisees in Pilate s judgment Hall chose Barabbas not Christ for Barabbas was a robber. Whether is peace or War the world needs god As we know him in Christ. He Only is the Hope of eternal life and peace. To forget god is not Only foolish it is disastrous. Former in Liam Srorn pit Nten i dead Edward s.
