Puts Your Town
On the Map"
A town isjudged by
its outward signs
of progress. If the
retail center has
stores and buildings, it creates a good
impression. It attracts new resi
dents,new industries. It progresses.
Progress raises the value of real
estate. It makes better newspapers.
The newspapers advertise the town.
If you are relresented in your home
paper's columns your advertisement
is not only bringing you business, but
it is helping the town, which also
helps your business.
Whatever helpa.your towon helps yo.1

The legislatie is abhout to take a

Cooper has recoinmmended a budget sys

raised by assessing each county its
sluae of the tax according to wealth.
The two plans are caleulated to work
best whellI a central alittlority has the
power of einalizing the taxes. The
legislatuore is about to weaken tlie
plans by doing away with the tax co:I

the fighting fell on the infantry. In

losses were Iany tines greater, even

units, Ithan those of the artillery, ma
chinte glin bat tal ions, t rench or

reginients lost fully on e-third of the
fill strength of 3,700 men inl killed,
died of wounds, missing and prison

are available, officers believe the totn'
casualties in several regiments may
