SIMPLE FACTS ABOUT THE
NOTES OF THE VICTORY LOAN
There are two kinds of notes being
issued. Both mature in three or four
years, as the Government chooses
The first kind bear 4 3.4 per cent in
terest yearly, payable every six months.
These are free from State and local
taxes, and from the normal Federal
The second kind bear 3 34 per cent
interest and are free from taxation
as others are, but in addition are free
from super-taxes and every form of
taxation, except the usual estate and
Notes of either kind can be changed
for those of the other issue, at the
Swish of the buyer.
The notes of both series will be dat- i
ed and bear interest from May 20, e
1919, and will mature On May 20, 1923.
Interest will be payable on December
15, 1919, and after that on June 15
and December 15, and at maturity.
The dates upon which payments will
be required on the notes are as tol- a
Ten per cent with application on q'
or before May 10.
Ten per cent on July 15. so
Twenty per cent on August 12,
Twenty per cent on September 9,
Twenty per cent on October 7. to
Twenty per cent on November 11 i
with accrued interest on deferred in. !'
! uymnent in full can be made on at
May 20. the ten per cent required with we:
application having been duly paid on 1do
or before May 10. Payment can also eax
be completed on any Installment' date tin
with atcruted interest.
This accrued interest is the money thi
you refund the Government on acount nui
of the fact that it pays you interest of
on the full amount tof your bond from dei
May 20, whereas it does not have the awe
full use of your money until you have sea
paid the last installment. This a- are
mounts to very little, of course. et

that the date of the meeting had been

WEST MONROE TO BECOME
PART OF OUACHITA'S CAPITAL
AY I)uring the next 60 days, or earlier
if possible, after the necessary legal
formalties have been carried out, the
town of West Monroe, with approxi
a mately 2.000 inhabitants, located Just
rch across the Ouachita river from Monroe.
ts will become a part of the city of Mon.
to roe. The town of West Monroe, is
the very much in favor of becoming a part
n of Monroe, and within the near future
e an election will be held in West Mon.
or. roe to permit its residents to vote on
the proposition of becoming a part of
ich Monroe. It is a certain fact that the
by election will carry and thus give the
a city of Monroe 2,000 more inhabitants
ire for its population, besides a bank, large
rn- cotton compress, 100 new homes and
nt many other improvements. The town
t's of West Monroe has one bank already
E. and a movement is now on foot to
i. establish a second bank, a new build
en ing and loan association, one of the
k. largest cotton compresses and most

SIn . discussing the. ptrishl.wide tax
proposition with some parties I find
that there is a little confusion as to
I the number of mills to be paid. By
r act of the legislature all special main.
1e tenance. taxes were reduced to not more
1 than five mills. By resolution of the
' Blenville Parish School Board at the
h meeting on March 27, 1019, this five
mills is abolished in case the five mills
parish-wide tax is voted. Hence the
Stotal amount of special taxe t oaxes t he
paid will be five mills. In el her case,
whether the district plan remains or
the parish-wide plan is adopted, not
more than five mills special mainten
ance tax can be collected.
