Settle's opponent is wholly unable to find u single fault with Ilia career, either personally or politically, and rdied upon the frivolons statement that Judge Settle, under the law, i not eligi ble, which ia farcical on its face However, this is a great tribute to Judge St tie), because if his opponent could have found anything up on which to bare based an attack upon him he would have done so, and t mt failure is manifested in the frivolous charge of ineligibility. The Court nf Appeals needs hit retention, and a more important oth' e than the one to which he seeks re election is not within the consider ation of the people of this state. Indeed, it would be nothing short of folly to remove Judge Settle therefrom at this particular period, be cause he is trusted, true, tried, capable und honest, ripe in experience, and is as vigorous mentally and physically M th iugh he were h mid die aged man. A knowledge of the law comes with long experience and can be attained only by those of long experience. Therefore it behooves the thinking people to keep in oilice as long as po.-siblu any Judge who measures up to the standard of Judge W. K. Settle. This may not be true in the other branches of our Government, but in the judiciary it is an indisputable fact. It hehooves all think ing Dcmonmts to retain Judge Settle in the position be now occupies and has so long and faithfully kept with dignity to the Court and cred it to himself. Judge Settle should receive an overwhelming majority at the polls next Saturday in this County. UNITED STATES FUEL ADMINIS TRATION Washington, D. C .

FARMERS CHAUTAUQUA AT McQUADY, AUGUST 6 AND 7 Many Topics to be Discussed Including Live Stock, Dairying, Poultry, Food Preservation. Why Teach Agriculture, Home and Community Build ing.

Says Amendment Pro vides That Commissioner's Duty is To See Every Tax Payer. SECTION OF ACT GIVEN There appears to be considerable ques tion and some misunderstanding in re gard to the duty of the taxpayer under recent legislation affecting the assess ment of property. The impression seems to prevail that it is the duty of the taxpayer to appear be fore the County Tax Commissioner (As sessor) in his office at the County Seat in order to properly list his property and that this the only lawful manner in which property can be listed. The original Bill provided for just such a course but it was so vigorously op posed that an amendment was offered and carried providing that the Commis sioner (Assessor) or his deputy must see each taxpuyer in person or call at his residence for the purpose of assessing bis property. If the taxpayer is not at home the Commissioner leaves a notice and schedule, where the taxpayer, with in the prescribed time, must certify to same before the Commissioner (Assessor) or his deputy or anyone authorized to administer an oath and return same to the Commissioner (Assessor). While it is not so written in the law, it was generally understood by the mem bers of the Legislature, especially those of us who spproved the original Bill, that the County Tax Commissioner (As sessor) would instruct bis deputies to no tify the taxpayers to meet them at the various voting precincts or other con venient places for the purpose of listing Mrs. Adda F. Howie of Wisconsin is the world's most not'.d farm woman and practical dairy woman. She has a herd of diary cattle on her farm near Milwaukee and from her herd sent the first jersey cattle into the empire of .1 pan. MRS ADDA F. HOW IE. Wisconsin For seven vears she whs a member of the State Board of Agriculture of Wis consin, being the only woman ever to serve on that board. She will give practical talks on Dairying, Poultry Raising and Home Building. and all will be repaid for hearing them. Our community has taken special pains to secure them and all who pos sibly can should turn out to hear them. their property. It seems to me that this would be the most convenient to all concerned ..ndlne best way to secure the assessments as it would avoid the possibility ot inconveni ence to the taxpayer should he be away from home when the Commissioner (As sessor) called and would also save the Commissioner (Assessor) considerable riding ami annoyance at failing to find the taxpayer.
