H. Overbeck farm. The consideration waa $20,000 00. This farm lies west of Stendal and is one of in the county. The neW rqal fsrmers and know Mr. .OveirhwcK formerly years ago to Ho Mrs. D. E. Hicks. Mrs. Wes Spillman, Mrs. J. Ross Blythe, Mrs, E. Dillen, Mrs. O. W. Brenton, Mrs. Mc-Crillus Fork. Mr. and Mrs. Lee Dearing and Mrs. Walter Shiver attended the district meeting of the Eastern Star chapter which was held in Petersburg Tuesday. Several of the grand lodge officers were present. The degree waa exemplified by the Princeton chapter. The district meeting next year will be held, with Grandview chapter. • An item was sent to the Evanvsille Courier and published in the Wednesday paper,saying that the bearing of the court bonse bond issue would be heard November 4th instead of October 2^d and that the place of the bearing had been changed from Petersburg to Indianapolis. The official notice of the bearing says that it will be held in Petersburg on Tuesday, November 4th at 10 o’clock A. M. Any person who cares to go need not get Qonfased by this false statement. The hearing will he held in Petersburg end the farmers of the county who are opposed to the bond issue should be present at the bearing. Under the new tax law the farmers of Pike county will meet the big tax burden. If we bnild s new court house the men and women who own farms will pay for the new structure. Under the new lew the man or woman whose wealth . consists of personal property will not pay so much tax as heretofore. Under the old plan when a taxpayer gave in a hundred dollars that taxpayer paid, taking an average for the entire county, $2.86. Under the new law that taxpayer pays, taking an average for the entire county, $1.30. You cen’t change the value of $100.00 But see what the farmer pays. Under the old assessment the farmers of the connty paid on an averi^e asscwáment per acre for land for the county alKrat $17.00. At an average rate of $2.86 he paid 48| cents per acre. Under the new assessment the average per acre for the county is about $47.00. The average tax rate under the new plan is $1.^. So that the taxpayer who owns land will pay, instead of an average of 48i cents per atre, 61 cents per acre. These are the figures for tbii year. After the court bouse tax might cosse on. the farmer, wb^ esnnot hide his laisd, will pay It is an ine as it is.

As be went to step from the train he broke his leg. The boys took him to a nearby garage where be was patched up to be able to see the game and get home where he keeps another one on hands. He left Monday for Cincinnati to have his leg repaired. Of coarse, the leg be broko was a wooden one but be needs it just the same. _ A second'convention was held Friday evening and a town ticket known as the Labor ticket was nominated. Charles P. Fettinger was nominated for trustee from the first ward, Charles Tisdal for trustee from the second ward, Frank C. Myers as trustee from the third ward and Cliff Davie for clerk-treasnrer. Cliff Davis presided over the meeting. Thus will we have two tickets in the field to vote for at the coming town election. by> The Winslow ball team joumeyeU>'to Tell City Sunday, aeci>mpanied about fifty or sixty fans and were fested by the Tell Cityites by af 4 to 2, The local fane mj that have the best team but that the fates were against 'them Sunday, lül the breaks coming for the Tell City team and all. theirs were troubles. The locals claim 6 hits and then only two mns while the other team got but two hits and made fonr runs. But such in athletics. When you are off you are off and when you are on you are on. Etc. The Wnlfman Company which has been hauling its coal from its mine just at the north edge of town in trucks and loading on    is    contemplating running a tramway to the railroad. The haulage would be shorter than the route now traveled by trucks. The coal would be hauled in cars as they are loaded in the mdhe with a midget steam engine. The trouble the company is experiencing with the trucks makes the getting of the coal to the car surh an annoyance* as the tracka are constantly giving trouble. We trust they will realize their dream of being able to load all the coal thejr^an mine. Their mine is a good one with high-grade coal and they nave it in sufficient quantities to run them many years. The little band-ful of men about Petersburg who are trying to fasten a ^^.000.00 bonded indebtedness upon Pike county, say that the seventy-five or eighty per cent, of the people of the county who are oppoeing the building of a new court house are not sincere but that the only reason they are opposing it is a scheme to move the connty seat to Winslow. In another breath they suy that it is impossible to move the county seat so long as the value of the county buildings are as much as $20,000.00 and that the jail alone is worth $100,000.00. Then their argument is of no valne. The county seat cannot be moved under any cir-cumetancee. This is tme and no one is trying to move toe county seat. In these days when about a fourth of the people own a “Lizzzie” they want •ome roads so that they can get over the county. Travel around over ti^e county and take a look at the dilapidated school bnildinge and the roads and see whether we want to apply all Ua bonded indebtedaeea we will be allowed for the next thirty years and see whether we InAMnr hare seme of tlito monoy In ac^wtf    ogd    leadz    or    lb a big pile oINB^ i^a eeert heee»?
