back. Four times in six years.

rour years ago he sent it to a'

seen that dollar since, and never

any more school or road tax for

The receipts from the privilege
tax have reached high water
mark. Up to date for 1906 the
tax on fertilizers has aggregatede
$96,000. By the end of February
it will be 100,000. This is the lar
gest income ever recorded from
this tax. For 1905 the tax aggre
gated $130,000 and up to the
same date in 1905 the tag was
only $48,000. More fertilizers
than ever are to be used this
year. Whether this means more
acreage, more fertilizers per acre
for cotton or fertilizer for other
crops is not known.
