Equitable Tax Assessment
Repre&euldtive-elect Adams of Bui
ler cuutity will introduce a bill look
ing to the assessment of all propert)
at its full true or real value, wnu a
penalty for the assessor who fails of
ins sworn duty. Mr. Ad iras d-clares
that "a large per cent of the peoule oi

one-third of its value. Then his 8200
exemption is set off from the $600
This only leaves him $400 to py
taxes od, when in fact he should bj
paying on the $2,000 mijU9 the, $200
exemption, or $1,800."
State Auditor Cole recommends
that the law make it absolutely man
datory to assess property at its full
cash value, and it is likely that such
an amendment will be added without
much opposition. There Is no ques
tion but that the present system is
detrimental to the state in many
respects. The rate as fixed ln the
different counties n a false valuation
undoubtedly militates against U9.
The first thing a sensible man does
when he concludes to change big resi
dence from one state to another is to
Inquire Into the rate of assessment,
and when he learns that It is from
four to six per cent he never stops
lone enough to inquire as to valuation.
He knows that money is only worth
five to seven per cent per annum, and
when taxes from his point of view
amount to what actual cost will
bring, he passps, and moves on to
some other state. Assess property at
its true value and the rate can be
lowered to one and one-half or two

There are men who know the life they
are living today is not right. They im
agine that the power is in them to trans
form it any day they please into an en
tirely different life. They do not under
stand that the life has been grcwing
wrong with their growth, and strength
ened with their strength, and that daily
conduct has to do with the character
which has been forming through all
these years. There can be no perma
nent change made on the outer life with
out first there is a change made in the
inner life.
We are making record every day and
memory comes in to have its influence
on the life of today. Sweet memories of
yore, how they crowd in upon me? Our
memory helps either to comfort or
scourge our today. We cannot escape
from it, and our life that now is, is col
ored by it Edgar Allen Poe has left on
record a testimony that we cannot live in
the future as though the present had not
been. By our thought, our conversation
and our conduct we are liberating sweet
songsters that will wake with the dawn
of the morrow to gladden us with their
melody, or birds of ill-omen, like the
Poet's Raven, above our chamber door
and croak their grim prophecy of coming
evil. The spirit in w hich we live this
present life, not only dictates the quality
of this life, but decides what kind of
messengers we will send into tomorrow-
messengers laden down with disappoint
ments or with glad messages of good
cheer. Shall we send raveus into the
morrow to croak over our chamber door,
or shall we send robins to chirp, or
nightingales to sing? We are deciding

Popular opinion is very fickle and very
often wrong. To be on the popular side
is no evidence of being on the right side.
The fact is, right and truth are often not
very popular, and at times have to wade
through bloody seas to the surface and
to victory. There is a great deal of
blind leading in our country and a vastly
more blind following. "Where the
blind lead the blind, both shall fall into

dolent to investigate for themselves, and
who are content to be found in the party
lines or on the popular side. They are
not troubled much with questions
of right or wrong either in politics or
in religion. And this is also true of

"Show yourself a man" by thinking for
yourself. Study and read up both sides
of every important question. Weigh im
partially and independently "the pros
and cons," then show yourself a man by
standing up nobly for the right and by
eschewing the wrong. The whoop and
cry of the political demagogue convinces
not thinking men. Ot the many politi
cal parties bidding for your suffrage
they each contain a strand of truth; but
party plattorms go for but little unless
the men who form them, the candidates
who stand on them, and the strong fol
lowing, men of conviction who think
more of the greatest good to the greatest
number than they do of place or prefer
ment, be in the ascendancy. Be not one
of the number without principle; but see
to it that your little ballot expresses the
real sentiment of a man, and one who
thinks for himself and dares to vote his
principles, though he votes alone.
"Show yourself a man" by rejecting
the wrong and emulating the virtues of
the great and good. "Dare to be right
dare to be true."
