We publish in another column the
finantial statement of the town of
the town of Manning. We hope every
citizen will' read these figures care
fully so as he can make himself
thoroughly familiar with the condition
of our town. . It will be seen that the
town is heavily involved in debt. How
ever, with the improvements which
have been made it took money to do
it. The town has a great deal of
money dwing from delinquent taxes,
also delinquent licenses and paving
tax. Now, we all know that money
is hard to get, at the same time it
behooves all delinquents to strain a
point and pay what they can, so as
the town government can be carried
on. We are satisfied council will do
everything in their power to keep
from forcing executions upon the peo
ple, at the same time to be fair to
all, these taxes must be paid. We
hope our citizens and taxpayers will
read this statement, and then give
council a helping hand. Let's boost
and net knock our city officials.
The next examination for securing
State Certificates will be held in the

The examination will cover primary
licenses, first, second and third grades,
and elementary licenses, first, second,
and third grades.
The examination for securing high
school certificates will be held later,
due notice of which will be given at
the proper time.
Many teachers in the county have
been teaching on permits the present
year. These permits expire in June,
and cannot be renewed. In case you
expect to teach' the coming year,. do
not neglect to take this examination,
for the reason that if you wait until
the examination in the fall, you
could not hear the results in time to
secure a position. Do not neglect to
do your part to qualify and then ex
pect to get permits again, for the
State Board will not issue a second
permit to any applicant.

T. L. BAGNAL, Clerk and Treasurer.
The Commissioners of Public Works are under the necesisty of building
up a cash reserve by reason of the fact that they are not allowed to borrow
money for taking care of the Water Works Plant in an emergency which
may arise. In an emergency such as now exists for additional water sup
ply-without the cash reserve now on hand the Commission would be help
less to relieve the situation.
The new well at the Ice Plant has reduced the flow of the .town well
about one-half, which is not sumlcient to supply the needs of the town. The
tomimission is arranging now to install pumping -machinery and this will
probably take all of the surplus now on hand.
