VOLUME XX. County Notes. f From the Qranada Times. ] Mrs. E. R. Bannister and daugh ter were down from Lamar from Fri day until Monday visiting the form er’s sister, Mrs. H. T. Parish, and family. Connty Commissioner Knowlen and Road Overseer Batcher did some emergenoy work on the bridge across the river, Sunday. A broken rod threatened the strength of one of the spans and demanded immediate attention. The road overseer dis covered the broken rod at 3 o’olock that morning—which shows that he is wide awake to his duties. J. F. Morgan, wife and daughter left for Waveland, Indiana, Tues day. They expect to spend the winter there and return to Granada in the spring. Mr. Morgan has 100 acres of average land in that conn try and his two oldest sons are farm - ing it. He says he made more clear money here off of 7 acres than he will gel from his 100 acres there. He got almost SI2OO from the 7 acres of cantaloupes raised on the P Y. All Tax Dodders. Once there was a resident of Chi cago who listed all her personal property for taxation. Recalling the instance the Saturdny Evening Post says: "The local newspapers pat it on the front page under scare heads. Buch a thing had never happened before. People date rem iniscences from it now, as from the year of the great fire, or the winter of the deep snow. Opinion was di vided. Some thought this miracul ous property owner was merely ec centric, others argued for insanity, it was pointed out that the total per sonal property returned for taxa tion was less than it had been thirty years before when the city had a third of the population and a sixth of the wealth. The episode made a record, as they say in sporting cir cles. To date nobody seems ambi tious to match it. There is a trilling formality in connection with the personal property schedule. It con sists of the affidavit at the bottom where the property owner does solemnly swear that he has listed above all his taxable possessions The devices by which the sensitive save their consciences for the per jury are infinite. But the sensitive are in the minority. The hardier majority just swear their way through it and have it over with. The art of.tax-dodging has develop ed to a point where a man who tells the assessor the truth may pay any where from five to twenty times his just proportion of taxes. Every body is acquainted with the system, but we appear satisfied with it, for nothing worth mentioning is doing to change it.” —Ex. Very Satisfactory. When season following season a stage entertainment succeeds so ad mirably in holding esteem as in the oase of Wood & Ward’s "Two Mer ry Tramps,” there must needs be something more than passing in its merits to deserve it. How this singularly audacious amalgamation of fun, frolic and music has been able to arrest the substantial consideration of amuse ment seekers so long and so pleas ingly is doubtless a matter of keen est interest to those who have the wisdom of laughter and merriment at heart. No other instance of mus ical comedy success has been re vealed where the original structure remained unimpared through the oonstant substitution of new timber, and it would therefore seem abso lutely clear that the foundation of "Two Merry Tramps” had been reared upon bed rock marvelous se curity. This season in particular the process of overhauling has been bo radically bold that it is said in spite of its general treatment the salient features of Wood & Ward’s cleysr conceit is easily recognized. Surely this speaks well of the far oioal play which has withstood the test of time and bids fair to continue on its touring triumphs indefinitely, "Two Merry Tramps is announced at the opera house Saturday Nov. 25.
