Return of $4,000,000
Increase of $843,791 20 in gasoline
tax collections Is expected by the
state highway department for 1930.
Only a part of the increase will go
to the state highway department,
however, since the counties now share
in this revenue, one-third of the net
proceeds going to them.
In 1928, collections totaled $2,204.-
040.35, of which the highway depart
ment got $1,460,000. The sum of
was paid to 39.102 persons
who made applications for refunds.
Returns for this year are not com
plete, but the department estimates
that $3,156,028.80 will be collected and
$1,142,358.90 paid out in refunds on
56.950 applications.
These figures represent seven
months of tax collections on a basis
of two cents per gallon and five
months of the three-cent tax. The
(hree-cent tax law became effective
In July, but no money was received
under it until August.
During the first two months of 1929.
the highway department received
nothing, most of the money collected
being used to pay refunds. In March,
however, it received $40,000. The sec
ond quarter brought $510,000. the
third quarter $620,000 and the fourth
quarter is expected to produce $290.-
000. Of the refunds. 20.650 were
made in the first half of the year for
a total of $372,032.44 and 36.300 in the
second half for a toal of $770,326.46.
Of the anticipated $4,000,000 collec
tion for 1930. it is expected that
$1,500,000 will be paid out in refunds
on 74.000 applications. This is only
$50,000 less than the highway depart
ment expects to receive as its share.
Payments to the highway depart
ment for 1929 are expected to fall
short of the estimate made by the
department in its budget for this
year. Collections were estimated at
$2,286,000 and refunds at $783,000
with a net income of $1,523,000 to the
department. The increase in refund,
payments left the department $63,000'
short of its anticipated revenue, how
ever.

'LAND PRICES REACH
LOW, STEADY LEVEL
OF PRE-WAR PERIOD
Rex Willard Feels Efficiency
Has Accomplished Halt in
, Downward Trend
‘•Prices of land in North Dakota
have just about reached the level they
were befor' the war, and the rather
slow decrease during the past two or
three years indicates that land has
probably reached a steady level.”
This is the opinion of Rex E. Willard,
farm economist of North Dakota
Agricultural college.
“Unlike lowa, fouth Dakota and
Minnesota.” Mr. Willard says, “land
prices in North Dakota did not go
so high and consequently have not
’ had so far to fall.” The fall of land
j prices in South Dakota has nearly
1 stopped, but in lowa and Minnesota
land values arc still on a downward
j trend.
The reason for the continued de-
I clinc In land prices since *921 is the
j difference in price between what a
j farmer pays for the things he buys
! and what he receives for the products
!he sells. “Only when the increased
j efficiency of farmers overcomes this
j situation is t safe to assume that a
downward trend in land values will
be stopped,” declares Mr. Willard.
“This apparently has been accom
plished in North Dakota."
Land prices vary widely in differ
ent parts of the state, a truth re
vealed clearly by a summary of data
on land sales compiled by the Great
er North Dakota association. The
highest priced land is in the south
east, followed by northern R-ni River
valley counties. Proceeding westward
prices average less, approximately in
proportion to the normal production
per acre, according to Mr. Willard.
Unimproved land is generally about
$lO per acre less than improved land.
Listed below are the average 1929
prices of land in various sections of
the state. These prices are the aver
age of a large number of sales conse
quently some prices were much higher
and others ’ ere much lower than
the average in any one region.

Needless
Pain!
The man who wouldn't drive his
motorcar half a mile when it's out of
order, will often drive his brain all
day with a head that’s throbbing.
Such punishment isn’t very good
for one’s nerves! It’s unwise, and
it’s unnecessary. A tablet or two
of Bayer Aspirin will relieve a head
ache every time. So, remember
this accepted antidote for pain, and
spare yourself a lot of needlem Buf
fering. Read the proven directions
and you’ll discover many valuable
uses for these tablets. For head
aches; to check colds. To ease a
sore thssat and reduce the infection.
For relieving neuralgic, neuritic,
rheumatic pain.
People used to wonder if Bayer
Aspirin was harmful. The doctors
