The following article concerning ,the State Adjusted Compensation bill, taken from the Pratt Tribune, is applicable to Seward county, and should be-considered by every tax payer in the county: The Kansas . Adjusted Compensa tion bill will be before the people on election day, November ' 7th. Will Pratt county stand by the beys who risked their lives at the front in the bloody world war, or will she fof get? . -. No, Pratt county will not forget the boys who left home, friends, jobs, everything that was dear to them and crossed the oceon to battle to the death against tyranny, and fought the good fight and won the day. The bill grants the boys one dol lar a day for every day that ' they were in the service. A mere pittance when one considers the risk they took offering their lives on the altar of their country. Our share of votes in order to car. ry the hill to success will be not less than 2100. Let's make it more than that. ' ..' If the bill becomes a law it will cost the tax payer 39 cents pre thou sand dollars taxable property as now reported on the rolls. Keep in mind that we were safely housed at home ' while the boys were sleeping in the mud and water in the dirty trenches of Europe with shells bursting all about them. Some of them did not return, others came back with health gone and crippled for life. Think of these sacrifices and then how little the sacrifice to us to help grant the small sum of one dollar a day for the time they were in serv ice. Let us not forget.
