Tills is dono in the spring uml tho assessor sots a .value on nearly everything wo own that he could find out about. Tho total amount of tho valuo of a man's property is divided by live and this Is tho amount upon which the tax la based. Sunnose a mnn li.nl nrnnnrfv u-tilnll tho assessor ostlmntpil tn l $500. Tho assessed valuo would bo ono-iutn, or $100. If this property wero ocated In Nebraska it would have to pay a tax to tho stato of Nebraska amounting to $1.04. It If wero located in Lincoln County it would (have to pay an additioal $1.50 and 50c toward tho now Court Houso fund. If tho tproporty wero in North Platto it would havo to pay an ad ditional $5.12 for riinninif tlm ultv and $10.20 for tho school fund. Tho total would bo $18.30. Theso facts can bo represented in nnother form as follows: On each $100 N State tax $1.04 County General tax $1.50 County Court Houso Fund... .50 City tax $5.12 $8.1 G .$10,20 Scool tax Total $is.3G It will bo noticed from the abovo that tho school tax Is more than all the other taxes nut toiroMinr.

HOYS TO DEMAND RESPECT I-'Olt THE FLAG. Yesterday mojuilng .a young man In North Plntto took an old Amorican Hag which ho said ho found in a pile of refuse, nnd started to uso It to dust an auto. It was on ono of our main streets nnd, It only took a inlnuto for ono or tho American Legion boys to call him to account. Otlurs wero on their way when tho first one got there. Using tho Amori can flag to dust off an automobile would not bo oxcuslblo In any American cltlzon, but tho fact Is that tho man who did this was a return ed soldier. His military Ufo does not seem to have Impressed tho proper respect for tho flag upon him. Ho will bo watched with intorest and wo aro nssured that should ho over try anything of that kind ngnln his carolessnes or lgnoranco will not prevent an attempt to liupres him rather forcefully. ;:oii " OHEKJHTOX UXIYEHSITY CLUB TO EXTERTA1X THE PEOPLE SUXDAY.
