"She Certainly Will
Appreciate ! It;
She Certainly Will."
Have you road "The Southern Maiden's Reply?" It
is a touching little love poem by Mr. Charles Frederick
Stansbury, now going the rounds. Under the magnolias
the youth is telling his love in, language hot as lava from
Vesuvius. He speaks thoughts that breathe in words
that burn to the extent of about thirty lines of verse.
"And this Is whnt tho mnidon said
Her words woro choice and fewt
'I cortalnly do apprcclato It)
I certainly do.'"
One of the things that women certainly do appreciate
they certainly do is
a full page advertise
ment of bargains in a
store near enough for
them to visit. In the big
cjties such pages ap
pear daily. Why? Be
cause the merchants
know that the women
appreciate it. They cer
tainly do know it.
All women are very
appreciative in the mat
ter of shopping bar
gains. They are so ap
preciative" that they
make' mental note of the
things they want, as ad
vertised, and make a
bee line for the store
-that keeps those things
on hand and lets them
know about it.
If the merchants in
the smaller cities and
towns this one, for in
stancewould do more of this kind of advertising, the
women certainly would appreciate it; they certainly
AND THE MERCHANTS CERTAINLY WOULD BE BENE
FITED; THEY CERTAINLY WOULD.
f TAX DISCUSSIONS
Farmers Have a Parliament On
Ohio's Tax Laws.
The fnrmers of tho state nro con
vinced that Ohio's tnxatlou system Is
wrong. At tlio lust meotliiK'of tlio
Stato Tax Commission, the agricultur
ists appeared before that body to urgo
reforms. After the piepurcd addresses
woro doll voi od and which have been
published In these columns, thoso
present critutml hito animated discus
Eton of the subject.
"I havo listened all tho nftornoon,"
sufd C. M. Fieunian, Tlppecnnoo City,
Secretary National Oiuugc,.and havo

Dr. W. I. Chamberlain, editor of tho
Ohio Parmer, replied, "Wo havo
failed for CO years to tax Intangible
property. It seems to mo that wo
farmer could agree after this long
trial that tho plan wo thought would
work, but novor has worked and
never will work as long as you try

II. P. Miller, Sunbury: Thrco bases

First, tho theory that government ex

Second, that tho government exists
for tho Individual, hofico tho poll tax,
nud tho propositions for Income and
liihoiitenco taxes, with all tholr costly
machlnory for collection of funds.
Third, natural wealth, tho coal, Iron,

A& rconncted nt tho recent session,
thoso words nro omitted, and whlld
thcro Is no specific mention in tho list
of exemptions of stnto nnd local bonds,

Urged as One Remedy For Acknowl

Tho discussion!) of tho representa
tives of Ohio great agricultural Inter
ests before tho Stnto Tax Commission
last month, brought out many good
Ideas on tho big subject of tnxntlon.
Publicity wns" urged ns ono remedy.
Hon. T. It. Smith, Hon. D. F. Swln
glo and Mr. V. E. Dunham all favored
publicity an n solution of tho vexing
problems without amending tho con
stitution. "How many look into tho
nsscssur'fl returns to sea how his
neighbor has listed property?" said
Mr Smith. "Onco I sent tho assessor
to a neighbor to look up some notes
he had not returned. Hy this means
?i!,000 woro added to tho duplicate. I
bellevo we could lncrcaso tho dupli
cate by this means. Somo years ago
I was In Sprlnglleld nnd found prop
erty paying an annual rent higher
than It was on tho duplicate for."
"I bollovo most of tho Inequalities
can ho cured by publishing tho prop
erty returned for taxatlon'tiy each,"
said Mr. Swingle. "Mortgage Indebt
edness Is very great In some sections
of tho state, and, though many legis
latures havo tiled to correct this ovll
liono havo so far been successful. Tho
personal property of tho faruvor gets
on tho duplicate at very near Its truo

At tho last hearing boforo tho Ohio
