This is the fourth time the United States The State of Indiana obtained a judgment against the DePauw estate in the Clark County Court for $8,200.00 tax money that the estate had failed to turn in. Recently Governor Goodrich compromised the suit with Col. Vernon T. Knight for $5,000.00. The matter came up while the governor was sick and was taken to Lieutenant Governor Bush who refused to compromise the suit, claiming that the estate should pay the full amount. After the governor got well he took the matter up and settled it for $5,000.00. Now Lieutenant Governor Bush is taking the governor to task for changing his ruling, claiming that it was done because CoL Knight is on the governor’s staff and that the governor gave the DePauw estate $3,200 of the state’s money. The governor says that only one-third of the money belonged to the state, the balance to Clark county and that the taxing officials of that county are willing to the compromise.

Eventually the women will be given the right to vote by the United States congress.    ^ Louis Caldemeyer, 5 yeart 6l<I son of Mr. and Mrs. Sam Caldemeyer southeast of Arthur, hung himself Monday afternoon.

Johnson who Lived here for many years. About seventeen years or so ago they moved to Hunting burg, later to Cannelton. Mrs. John< son died week before last. An account of her death is'given in the Cannelton Enquirer as follows: The ^remains of George Curtis died Monday night in the Pike County jail in Petersburg where he had been making his home for some time. Months ago be became epileptic. He- bad no home and an effort was madjot to get him into some state institution but there was none for him.

The suit alleges that Bums took the booze into the old house at the Cox mines where he got drunk and was found dead as a result. His trip to Huntingburg was on Staurday but be was not found until Monday morning when the men went to the mine to start work. It was claimed in the law suit that he remained in a drunken condition all day Sunday which caused bis death some time that night.

The merchant who does not advertise these days is not keeping his ear to the ground. The scope of trade is widening out these days. Formerly, the people traded at any store they could reach easliy by hitching to the buggy or wagon. They paid the price and took tb® goods whether or not because it killed so much time to drive five or ten miles farther. With the advent' ot automobiles on every farm the scope of trade to any one store has been enlarged. People do not mind an extra five or ten miles drive to get what they want. They do not know what a store has unless that store tqlls them through their favorite newspaper. The scope of country a store may draw from these days depends upon that store’s ability to tell che people through the newspaper what it has. Small town merchants who do not realise this make a great mistake. Not a store in Pike county but that Cfn profitably spend money for advertising In The Dispatch as it reaches fbe people of central and southern Pike county almost to a home* The rates are very moderate—so much ao that a merchant can reach the people within a trading radius of hie store at a verydow ooet per hundred fatafiiee.
