Hundreds Annually Will Be Saved by the Hew War Tax List. The new war tax list which will go into effect after next Monday will make quite a saving in different lines of business. It would be hard to gel anything like a correct estimate of the amount of war tax paid in Abilene since the tax was put on. The rev enue stamps purchased and used In this town tor checks, mortgages and other papers, telegrams, etc, will gregate $5,000. People who are only occasionally called upon to use rev enue stamps would not suppose that they counted up very fast. A few cents a day in checks or telegrams do not amount to much. . Taking the whole business of the town, however, it soon amounts to high figure, at least one or two thousand dollars per year, for the purposes mentioned above. What the entire amount for all purposes would be cannot be esti mated very well. At any rate it is certain that the revised tax list will amount to a large figure. Since the war tax has been on the people of Abilene have paid out about $900 alone for telegrams sent although it takes 100 telegrams to use up $1 in revenue stamps. When the matter of bank chocks is considered it will be seen that even the 1-cent revenue stamps soon run up into a big ac count. GOES TO SOUTH AMERICA. W. A. Xern to Take Another Long Trip. W. A.
