One Week of Grace.
There remains but one week in
which taxes can be paid without
penalty. After the 15th of March

law to turn the books over to the
sheriff and then the penalty and
costs will be added. The treasurer
has stated that about 85 per cent of
the taxes have been paid, which is
about the usual proportion. A
word of warning or a simple remind
er should be sufficient. Don't
blame the treasurer or anyone else
?f you are "double taxed."
