advantages enjoyed by but few other

Tacoma World: Advertising is mncb
like insurance. It is an essential of
modern commercial life. Yet it is not
one. «pon ■which certain calculations of
profits can be made. The ordinary ad
vertiser foel6 when he pays advertising
bills much as the ordinary man who is
insured on either life or propery does
when he pays premiums or assessments.
Of course, the large advertiser and the
heavily insured make advertising and
insuring a part of their business, and do
not regard it as a loss or hardship to
pay for them. It is a demonstrated fact
that advertising and insuring pay on an
average as well, or better, than any oth
er money expended in business. The
euccessful business man is always a lib
eral advertiser because he knows it pays.

The following from the Stevens Coun
ty Miner, is good advice to the people of
Pullman and they should lose no time
in heeding the warning: "News reached
us through reliable men tho first of the
week, that the small-pox in Spokane
Falls it more widespread than the people
here think for and j^fcerefore, more to
be dreaded. Five cases are now in the
j)ost house and three are very low It
is said that 70 people were exposed at
one of the hotels, but finding that the
officers had been notified, they fled be
fore tho house was quarantined. There
is ono case in Warder, it is reported.
Now that so mjiny have been exposed
and are now scattered to tho four winds,
our people cannot use too much precau
tion to prevent its advent among us.
Evory person, v.hether he has ever been
vaccinated previously or not, should go
nt once to his physician and see if the
virus will again take effect. It would
be very disastrous to our locality, in fact,
it would be nothing short of calamitous,
to have this disease aoiong us at the
present time. t»o bo very cautious.

and proceed to make the proposed improve
Sec. 4. In all cases where the Board of Trus

any street, and the cost thereof lias been duly
estimated as herein provided, they shall, before
proceeding with the execution of the work,

and assessable for the costs thereof as follows:
An assessor shall be appointed by the Board of
Trustees and sworn to appraise all lot» and parts
of lots and land, irrespective of the improve
ments or structures thereon, and the whole cost
of said grade, planking, gravelling, or other im
provements, shall be assessed pro nita on said
lots or parts thereof, which apportionment shall
be made by the Board of Trustees by ordinance,
and a tabulated statement thereof shall be made

the information of all persons concerned, and a
notice thereof published in the newspaper doing
the town printing for two weeks consecutively.
Such statement shall show the name of the own
er of lot, if known, the number of the lot, or
part of a lot, or other land, with the lineal num
ber of feet frontage thereof and the nnmber of
the block, if numbered, and the value of such
lots, parts of lots, and other lands respectively.
Bso. 5. Any person considering himself ag
grieved by such assessment and appraisement
may apply to the Board of Trustees, at its first
regular meeting after the publication of said no
tice, for a modification of said assessment or ap
praisement, and the Board of Trustees may
amend the same as may seem just.
Sec. 6. When the tabulated statement men
tioned in section 4 of this ordinance has been
approved by the Board of Trustees, the same
shall be recorded in the office of the connty Au
ditor of the county of Whitman, in the record
of liens upon real property, and shall be and re

in the newspaper doing the town printing that
said assessment is due and payable to the City
Treasurer. The Clerk shall make out and deliv
er to the Treasurer a certified copy of said ap
praisement and assessment, who shall proceed to
collect the same manner as other town taxes are
collected, except as herein otherwise provided.
Provided, however, that work may be accepted

tion of the notice mentioned in Section 7 of this
ordinance, the sum assessed upon any lot. part

urer, the Hoard of Trustees may at any time
thereafter order a warrant for the collection of
the same to be issued by the Town Clerk direct
ed to the Street Commissioner.
BEO. 9. Hncli warrant must require the Street
Commissioner to forthwith levy upon the lot, or
part of lot. or other land npon which the assess
ment is unpaid and sell the same in the manner
provided by law for the sale of real estate for
delinquent tnxes, and return the proceeds of said
salo (less his fees) to the Town Treasurer, and
the warrant to tho Town Clerk, with his doings
thereon, together with the receipt of the Town
Treasurer for Ihe proceeds of such sale.
Seo. 10. The person executing such warrant
shall immediately mnko a deed for the property
sold to the purchaser, stating therein thnt the
-Mime is subject to redemption, as hereinafter
provided. Within one year from the date of the
sale the owner, or his successor in interest, nr
any person having a lien by judgment, decree or
mortgage on the property, or any part thereof
separately sold, may redeem tho same upon the
terms and conditions provided in the next sec
Bkc. 11. Redemption is made by the payment
of the purchase-money and twenty-five per cent,
additional, together with the interest upon the
purchase-money from the date of sale to the
time of payment at ten per cent, per annum,
and the amount of any tax which the purchaser
may have paid upon the property.
Seo. 12. A redemption discharges the prop
erty from the effects of tho sale and from the
assessment. If made by the owner, or his suc
cessor in interest, the estate in the property is
thereby restored to Bnch owner or snecessor in
interest; but, if made by a lien-holder, the
amount no paid shall form part of his lien and
boar the same rate of interest.

provisions of this ordinance convoys to the pur
chaser (subject to redemption I all the estate or
interest therein of the owner, whether known or
Skc. 14. The fee** and percentage to be al
lowed to the person for making the Hale of prop
erty for delinquent assessments for street im
provements, us provided in this ordinance, shall
be fixed by the uTrnstee by ordinance, and shall
be added to and form a part of such assessment
from the time the same becomes delinquent and
shall be collected from the property assessed in
the same manner as the original assessment; and
in no instance shall the town be liable for such
percentage, costs or few.
Sec. 15. All money paid or collected upon
assessment* for the improvement of streets or
alleys shall be kept as a separate fnnd and in no
wise used for any other purpose whatever. All
money so assessed, from the time of being en
tered in the record of liens, shall bear interest
at ten per cent, per annum until paid.
Sec. 15. If, npon the completion of any im
provement of any street or alley, it is found
that the sum assessed therefor is insufficient to
defray the cost thereof, the Board of Trustees
must ascertain the deficiency, and when so ascer
tained the Town Clerk shall give notice thereof
and such deficiency shall be added to the origin
al assessment and collected in the same manner;
and when said assessment shall be in excess of
the sum required for said improvement, the
same shall be repaid to the parties owning the
property or their representatives.
• Sec. 17. ; Whenever any lot, or part thereof,
shall be sold Tor more than the amount assessed
thereon, including the costs of sale, the surplus
inrust be paid into the town treasury and the per
son executing the warrant must take a separate
receipt therefor and file it with the Town Clerk,
anil thereafter the owner, or his legal represent
ative, shall, on application to the Board of '1 rus
tees be entitled to a warrant for the same.
Sec. 18. The deed to the purchaser must ex
press the true consideration therefor, and the re
turn of the person executing such warrant must
specify the amount fji'r which the lot or parcel
of land was sold and the name of the purchaser.
Sec. 19. This ordinance shall take effect and
be in force from and after the date of its ap
proval. ' -" -
