S. 1920 census swears to these returns a total of 2,146,512 automobiles or More than 332 machines for every 1,000 farms. Pessimists who bemoan the quot poor Farmers quot inability to come Back with a Rush of Prosperity had better paint their Blue goggles Pink. The Farmer i is quot right there quot Fellows and while he is just now in too much of a hurry to sell his crop at Low figures to get ready Cash you la find the Farmer right at the Bottom of the reconstruction Boom we All believe. And this year s Farmer is a much speedier citizen than Ever before because he is Well motored and has rubber wheels under him. Do you Jinow. That two out of every 100 farms in the United states have Zlotor trucks today there Are now 139,lft9 such trucks. Pennsylvania leads with 9,372 new York has 9,259 Iowa,8,910 Ohio 7,319 Nebraska 6,548 California 6,416, and Illinois 6,154, to name a few.

The White county Farmers association Are to be congratulated on the movement that they have started toward a reduction of existing tax rates. For the most part however they have not yet gotten at the proper places to strike if any material reductions Are to be made for their attention has been entered mostly on the expense of conducting the various county offices. As a matter of fact the expense of All these offices is a very Small item As compared with the total and it would not reduce the total taxes to any appreciable degree if this expense were Cut in half. About 80 per cent of the taxes paid in any township Are used for the sup port of roads and schools. Less than 9 per cent is used for the salaries and office expense of All the state and county officials and the remainder is used for township trustee s expense benevolent institutions and the poor. It is Plain to see that if any material reduction in the taxes is to be made it will have to come on the Road and school funds but whenever this has been attempted by the officials in charge there has always been an awful Wail gone up from All affected because they did not get the new Road built past their House or because the schools w Trento up to the Standard that they thought they should be. The levies for 1921 have not yet All been approved but they will not be far different from those for 1920 and on that basis a Farmer living in Liberty township for instance who pays a Hundred dollars in taxes this year will be contributing to various causes As follows. State offices state benevolent institutions schools i vocational education universities 1.73 highways 2.30 state Soldier s memorial .33 salary and expense of county state state state state .61 3.40 3.30 .13 English War Bride.

Ofle Ces county Road 9.62$rled to excellent husbands and both another International Romance bred of the tension and excitement of War has been shattered. In its inception it probably was much the same As Many other love affairs that came to Light while troops were quartered in the various training Camps in England but faded in the storm of Battle. Only in its later development did it transcend the commonplace and bring into real life the elements of fiction. The Romance received wide Public City in this country to the attention of which it was first called by the appearance of an English War Bride with a child whose father already had a wife and family. Ascribing his behaviour to the nervous Strain of War the first wife overlooked the injury and forgave the erring husband a reconciliation being effected. The brother thereupon agreed to marry the girl giving her and the child Legal Possession of the name they already bore. The marriage took place in february of last year. Part of a cynical Public doubtless made a Metal reservation As at the time and prepared to await developments. For Nineteen months the arrangement seemed to be satisfactory but now the blight of discord again has touched the family Circle. The English girl has fled from the Home leaving a note with the statement that she no longer cared to live with her husband. Whether she sighs for a glimpse of London or whether the solicitude of the husband failed to win the love Finger in cops Oil Sli age Cutter special election tuesday Drew Only 17% vote Complete unofficial returns from tuesday s special election show that 211,917 votes less than 17 per cent Normal Ere Cost for amendment no. 1, the Only one carried.

Total---------------$100.00 from this it will be seen that ?82.59 of the $100 goes to the support of roads and schools and a great big majority of this is spent right in the township on the local schools and to pay the Bonds and interest on All the new roads that have been built during the past few years. If any lasting Reform can be made it will have to Start in the township where about eighty per cent of each Dollar of taxes in spent. The action of the committee in voting to Disfavour the granting of any More roads for the present was a step in the right i the general tax j Section and such action should receive the support of All Monticello Herald.
