JUNE 6,1906. i ; On Tour Label Is a Date. ; LOOK AT IT. | Union District, Mason Co., May 28, 1906. Editor Register:?I would like to ask a few questions oonoerning the New Tax Law, and for fear you oan not answer them satisfactorily to all, would suggest that you print this in your paper and let some of our Republican friends that know all about the law answer them 1st. Does the law require the assessor to list the building material you have on your farm as mention ed in the 16th item on the blank that are furnished by the assessor? 2nd. Are you required by the law to list ties, saw logs, lumber eto , that have been bought by you and only partly paid for before the first of April? Would these oome under item 26 of the list? 2nd. Is the assessor complying with the law, if he lists property at only two thirds of what the owners have been offered for it and that offer still standing? The reason I ask these questions is this: I was fool enough to think that we would be expeoted to obey the new laws and follow the tax commissioners instructions even though they are bad laws; and 1 have tilled out the blank cent me and put down a 1 timber,fenoe posts, saw logs, and building material at their true and actual value, and 1 find the deputy assessor up here does not list any material that one will tell him he intends to use on the farm, and I have beard that he does not assess tier, lumber &o. that have been booght and not paid for in full. Now if this is the law, I would like to know it; for I was fool enough to list what property 1 owned the fir*t of April, even though it was not paid for, for 1 am oertain that the parties that 1 bought from will not list it, for they have sold it to me. Yours truly Democrat. Closing Agreement.

Guthrie, looated on the Ganley river, comprising a large traot of timber and coal Iandf>, on whioh the Judge had built a handsome summer residence, has been sold by Dr. L. V Guthrie for tbe snm of $20,000. The greater part of this property was purchased by Wash ington parties, who, it is said will take measures towards mining the ooal that underlies tbe traot. Many a West Virginia party has been delightfully entertained by Dr. and MrB Guthrie at this fine summer home, who, no doubt, for personal reasons will regret the sale of the property.?Hnntington Herald. I / Drove From Indiana. A gentleman by the name of ?Skinner who baa recently bought ? lot of lumber in Union and Cologne districts, this county, drove four fine teams through from Indiana, arriving in this county last Friday. Mr. Skinner will nse the teams in hauling the lumber to tbe railroad and the river He has cne fine team that oost five hun dred dollars. Tbe man who is determined to do something for bis fellows most make up his mind not to be die oouraged by being called "selfish," a "grafter," or a "schemer." We have often wondered why the baby, just washed and newly newly dressed in its finest olotbes, would rather play with a lump of pool than a nioe white pebble.
