NEAR TWO-THIRDS TAXES UNC0I1ECTED Taxpayers of Faulkner county are moving with customary slowness this year, and the grand rush before the final day has hardly set in yet, Sheriff W. M. Brady said today. With only about two weeks remaining until April 10, the final day for payment without penalty, only 2,375 receipts has been issued today, being only a little more than one-third of the total of about 7,000 to be mada out. Some of the taxpayers, the sheriff thinks, are hanging back on account of a recently published rumor that Governor McRae might again extend the time of paying taxes without pen alty ,as was done last year. No such order, however, has been issued by the governor and the latest reports from his office are to the effect that no proclamation of the kind will be is sued this year. In view of the fact that nearly two thirds of the receipts are to be made out in the few remaining days, Sheriff Brady urges all taxpayers to bring their land numbers with them when they come to the courthouse, as much time is lost when the lands have to be looked up without a propoer des cription. Regarding the road taxes in the three highway districts, Mr. Brady said today that taxes, both road and general property, are being paid if anything a little better in these dis tricts than in portions of the county not in a road district. No attempt is being made by anyone to pay prop erty taxes without also paying the road taxes, he said.
