; Hi. STATE CAPITAL
if 'Vitor of the State Capital:—The last
jlature passed a bill providing tor 'lie
fee yintmvnt of tux ferrets by the board
1county commissioners of the several
jiitics of the state. This system is by
• means a new one. Tax ferrets have
ken in existence for over thirty years
[ soma of the oldtr states and lias al-
tys proven to be one of the best
*o> ted by any legislature. The founder
lis bill was Mr. Pittman, of Enid.
'<9 bill is number 245 and provides lor
V appointment of tax ferrets by the
ffl ,nrd of county commissioners.
t The county commissioners of Logan
county api>ointed John Adams and Paul
m Williams as Tax-Ferretts. These two
It young men are Oklahoma boys, Mr.

i X 4! Oltler states we have what we call
I professional tax-dodgers and our oom*
B irfissioners realizing that, and also flnd-
f W-inE that each year thero was less mon-

* stimate now that there are about a
.'.ion dollars worth of personal prop-
erty which has escaped taxation. If this
iwas paid into the treasury of Logan coun-
ty it would reduce our tax'cs so much
that the board of county commissioners
would be able to reduce the levy for tho
running expenses of this county about
ore half. People have been unable to
vnderstand why their taxes were so high.
It is simply because we have so many
people owning thousands of dollars worth
of personal property In our county and
not paying one cent's worth of taxes
Mr Pittman. the originator of this law,
J J.) as been chosen In twenty-two of the
.f .unties of the state of Oklahoma as tax-
.rreler, Tex ferrets have been appointed
'K.ti nearly every county In the state. The
JKvox'ement Is certainly worthy of evp-y
9*nxpaycrs honest honest support and «s
ii_>ne that Is gaining In favor every day.
- /lit not only makes the burden of tax«s
1 ■"upon the poor man much lighter, hut It
•ncourages people to invest In property
nstead of holding their money. Taxation
1 ^ real property as a rule Is much lower
an on personal property. The man who
•ns a $10,000 lot pays on the cash value
It. while the man who loans the same
amount avoids any taxation simply be-
cause Ills property is not visible and does
not tell the assessor that he has that
nount of money.
While talking to Mr. Oberholzer. chair-
man of the board of county commission-
today, he stated that people did not
realize the importance of paying th';*e
back taxes at this time. For the reason,
had not the present board of county com-
missioners complied with the law and
ppointed tax ferrets, incoming boards of
the future would take up the matter,
nd cause an additional collection of
three or four years back taxation on
same property, which would be a
much greater burden.

alleged that the cheap and adulterated I
varieties of beer hurt the business of the 11

That adulterations are largely used in

Brewers state that such Impurities are
to be found in only the cheaper grades

This lofty flower, having such strong
stalks, is not at all ungraceful, and
when properly cultivated is a profuse
bloomer. Plant the bulbs rather deep
in the ground. They need the strong-
tst fertilizers, also an abundance of
water and sunshine. It Is better to tie
them to strong stakes to guard against
damage by wind and It is also better
to plant them In a hedge row. as they
