FOR ENSUING YEAR
The county supply bill, as passed at
the recent session of the legislature,
calls for a total appropriation of $80,
115.27 and a levy of nine mills. The
levy last year,so It Is understood, was
insuflicIent to cover the amount ap
propriated, so the county went Into
debt on laft year's operations. It will
be noted that $2,000 of this debt is in
cluded In the bill for 1917 and con
seqluently a part of the taxes collect
ed for this year will be used in de
fraying Last year's expenses.
The appropriation for roads thils
year Is about ;3,000 farger than last
year. It is understood that the dele
gation provided tihis increase so that
in case the proposed bonds are voted
the commission may proceed at once
and not. be delayed until the bonds are
Except lin the case of minor changes

$1,300. llecause of this increase the
superintendent Is expected to give his
full tline to the office and perform the
duties of the rural school supervisor,

Card of Thalnks.
Please allow me to express my
heart-felt thanks to my friends for
the many manifestations of kindness
extended to my sister, Mrs. T. L. Hel
larps during her long illness; also
for their prayers and to the little clili
dren for the beautiful flowers they
brought her. May-God bless each and
every one of them is my sincere wish.
Mrs. Belle Gray.
A Hint to the Aged.
If People past sixty years of age
could be persuaded to go to bed as
soon as they take cold and remain in
bed for one or two days, they would
recover much more inlekly, especiail
ly if they take Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy. There would also be less
dlanger of the cold being followed by
any -of the more serious diseases.
