NEW LUXURIES TAX IN
Tuesday morning the new excise or
'luxury' tax became effective.
This tax differs mateiially from all
other war assessment levies in that

mented with piecious metals or imlt.i
tions, ivoiy and watches, clocks, opera
glasses, lorgnettes, marine classes,
field glasses and binoculars. The re
turns to the tax collector is made by
the store in which the purchase is
made, the five 'per cent tax being
merely added to the sale price.

aimed at Milady is the tax which will
go into effect Hay 1. No longer

to Manager Allen of the Western Un

quarters to set them ahead on the
night of the 30th inst
Unless he receives orders to the con

principal time keepers of the city, will
go ahead one hour, while the other
clocks in the city and county will Ia.j

AFRAID OK BURLESON'S SERVICE
The War Department has made u
change in its rules concerning appli
cations for the ?G0 bonus to which dis
charged soldiers arc entitled. Hither
to, applicants have been requited to
send to the Zone Finance Officer in
Washington, their original discharges
but now it is provided that,
"Hereafter discharged soldieis who
have not received the $60 bonus to
which they are entitled need not send
their original discharge certificates
to the Zone Finance Officer.
"Certified copies of discharges may
be presented to the nearest recruiting
officer, together with the original dis
charge, in order that he may make
an official notation on the latter."
A lack of onfidence in the mail"
has caused many men to fear that If
they sent their discharges to Wash
ington they would never again see
them. This tribute to Mr. Burleson's
postal service has induced many ex
soldiers to refrain from claiming thpir
bonuses, although they were clearly
entitled to the money and needed if,
in a considerable number of cases verv
badly. Their discharges, however,
were too valuable to risk. Now. trey
will be able to get their bonuses with
out the chance of losing their dis
charges. New York Sun.
RANGE CONDITIONS GOOD.
M. I. Powers recently returned from
a trip through the valley and reports
general conditions .for sheep men as
being good. He says lambing is pro
gressing finely. He made two trips
out over the desert and found feed
conditions good everywhere. Sheep
men are encouraircd over the outlook
and expect a very prosperous season.
lhis week Mr. rowers received a
wire from the National Wool Growers'
Association with headquarters at Salt
Lake City, stating that they were in
formed that wool was selling every

Powers wired them that several cars
of Arizona wool had been consigned to
