State Illiteracy Chairman, Mrs. Cora Wilson Stewart, is urging moonlight school teachers every where to speed up their moonlight schools so as to teach tho thousands in tho next draft to read and write before thoy are called to the colors. 1 It is estimated that in Kentucky there are something near 40,000 illiterates included In the next drat ages,, who cannot read or wrlto their names. To teach tlum he'oio they aro called will be tho great task.ot the inoonllght'toachers of the state. In Ohio County, wjth sixty-eight teachers pledged and " proper co-operation on mo , lart of patrons and trusteos with these teachers, not n slnglo IHiter - ate should go forth from this coun- ty in the future calls. Officers nt tho camps estimate that it requires n least three months more to train nn illitorato for front-line servlcoj man a man wno can rend, so ouri .teachers can realize what a patrio- tic duty they aro performing, and that every man they teach to read brings him nearer tho battle lino and tho war nearer to a close.

We are frequently nsked many questions relative to the now law governing the assessment of proper ty In this nnd other counties of the state, which was enacted nt the last session of the Legislature, and for the benefit of the people out in thr county who don't have nn opportuni ty to rend the Acts of the Legisla ture, we aro printing Section C, of Chapter 11 of tho Acts of 191S, which fully explains the duty of tho tax-paycr,s. Section 5. "T.mo Spent in Offlrc. The County Tax Commissioner shall I keep his office open for the purpose ,of assessing property nt all reasona ble times, except on Sundays nnd i legal holidays, from the first day of July to the thirty-first day of Octo ber inclusive of each year, and It shall bo tho duty of the tax payers of tho county to nppear at said office during said time and to furn- 1 ish tho County Tax Commissioner a list of their property of all kinds and descriptions that said ' commis- sloner is -required 'tic assess uirrter 'law. Provided, however, that if any taxpayer shall fall or refuse to list his property. It shall be the duty of the County Tax Commissioner, or ilcputlc3, to see said taxpayer In person or call at his residence for tho purpose of securing the assess ment of his property. If said tax payer is not at home nt tho time ot said call, the County Tax Commis sioner, or deputy, shall leave a writ ten notice, together with a copy or the schedule. Said notice shall state that the Comniissoner, or dep uty Commissioner, has called for the purpose of assessing tho property of the taxpayer. It shall then be the duty of the taxpayer to personal ly appear before the County Tnx Commissioner, or hi- deputy, nnd assess his property within the time prescribed by law for the assess ment of property. Failure to re spond to said notico shall subject the taxpayer to a fine not exceeding fifty dollars. From the first day of, November to tho thirty-first day of December, inclusive, tho County Tax Commissioner shall mako up his assessment book and perform such other duties as may be required to obtain a fair and equitable assess - nient of the property i his county, Any taxpayers may, when lie has a reasonable excuso for not assessing his propel ty before the Tax Commis sioner or liis deputy as herein pro vided, nppear before any person authorized to admluMor an oath and make the necessary affidavit re- I quired by the schedule as to tho ' Y.,i0 oi n property, and may then ' return said schedule to tho County Tax Commissioner, nnd this shall be J considered u compliance with j lau. m hIs particular case." - tho .
