6omo 11 miles from Cracow lies a

which forms a rnllwny stntlon. Horo

vista of sand scrub which greeted the
eyes of the wearied travelers. To add
to their discomfort abovo the muffled
roar of tho train arose tho continuous
walling ot n child. Moro than one
man cursed softly and sought refuge
in another car all as It happened

"Why don't you keep that brat

The mother a forlorn-looking wo-

not tho province of thte space to on-

tho governor is rlcht. The urgency
for this inquisition does not como
from tho depositors for they havo

urged by the stockholders but by

Section 1 nrticle 1 page C03 ses-
sion lawj of 1009 under which taxes
nre now collected is as follows:
"Section I. All taxes levied upon

This is tho samo provision that has
been in forco for tho last ten years
one that was made by a republican
legislature signed by a republican
governor and has novor been changed.
