They owe it to themselves to take this precaution and they owe It to the community In which they live as well an to the great business world at large. ; "TIMES" iirc always "fJOOD" when our money Is moving freely through the channels of trade, but become suddenly "HAD' when people begin to hoard. Panics nro caused by widespread withdrawals of money from circulation. Then It Is that LIVE DOLLARS become DEAD DOLLARS, and everybody Is "HARD UP." THE First National Bank OF CALUMET, Is a good safe bank and has all of the necessary facilities for bringing to life all of the DEAD DOLLARS in this community. HAY ASSESS PROPERTY IN MICHIGAN AFTER APRIL 1 j Deputy Attorney General Explains Unique Technical Point in the Law DECISION FAVORS ASSESSOR !f a man has proicrty valued at certain amount en April 1, the date on which the assessor Is supposed to baso his flniMngs, and If after that date he purchase additional property to make improvements of an extensive nature, car. the assessor Include this amount In his flnulngs or must ho wait until ihe next year? This was a question submitted ta Deputy Attorney General Chase re cently. The matter was brought to his attention by a tax payer who was evidently very' much In earnest and who believed at first that the point which he raised would be sustained. He explained that about the end of April he purchased f5.00 worth of wool and stored It in a barn on hla property. Along came the assessor, appraised the property and Included the wool with the remainder of th Items. The tax payer objected. He bought that wool after the date on vhlch the law stated the valuo of property should be determined. The assessor refused to remove th Item and n a last resort the citizen appeal ed to thcatturney general's office. "Why certainly," said Mr. Chase, "cert ilnly he had a right to tax you for the wool. If the assessor did no. p!nee it on his books then the board of review could place It there." 'Hut It wa after the flrst of April." objected the iltlzcn. "Suppose It was," replied the State offlrlil. "t'nless you tried to dode your taxe by refraining from men tioning the amount of money you had, you would have been assessed for that $3,000 wouldn't you?" "T. I suppose T would." "Well, then, what's the difference whether you arc taxed for f!5,0f0 In cash or f.l.OOO v.-orth of wool?" "No difference," replied the inquir ing citizen, as he disappeared through the doorway. PRINCE OF TONIGHT Company Pleases Large Audience at Duluth Last Week 'The Trince of Tonight." a musl cnl comedy in which Henry "Woodruff is starring, played at a large audi ence at tho Lyceum last night, giv ing more thin average satisfaction, says the Duluth News Tribune. Mr. Woodruff Is surrounded by a good company, including Ruth Peebles, Em ily Clark, Margaret Mcllrlde and John C. Leach. There Is a fair M torus and a well trained and well dressed ballet. It is not a production in which the stir Is overworked, or which gives him a chance to phlne brilliantly. Mr. Woodruff, however, makes a very fair impression', although his comedy is not of the quality that will cause any body to pay (b .tor's bills for over laughing. He wears his stage clothes admirably, and makes a very fetching I rince. Ruth Peebles, as Virginia Stuart, displays a good deal of talent. She dances well, sings acceptably and is charming to look at. Emily Clark's work, also, Is something worth men tion. One of her songs with Joseph Niemeycr, who, by tho way. Is quite a clever fellow himself, made a hit. Mr. Woodruff sang "I Wonder Who's Kissing Her Now" and "Her Eyes Are R!uo for Vale." Margaret Mci'.rido and John C. Icach are charged with the task of fun making, and succeeded surprisingly- considering material at hand. Indeed, the fact that the show Is really enjoyable Is due more to tho ability of tho company than to the excellence of the Rook or lyrics. Th "Prlnco of Tonight" w ill bo pre sented at the Calumet theater on Thursday evening. The Hoard of Review for the Town ship of Calumet will be In session nt the Township Clerk's office, Ulseth block, on Monday and Tuesday, June 13 and 11 and so many days thereafter as may be necessary for reviewing and correcting the assessment roll for said township. All taxpayers who are In terested can call nt the Bald office be tween the hours of 9 and 12 a. m. and 1:30 p. m. on the above named days. James MacNaughton, Supervisor. 184 ADDITIONAL HOUGHTON PECULIAR FIRE SATURDAY. Tho Houghton fire department was called out Saturday afternoon to put out u peculiar blaze on tho Ruppe lot, back of lllxou's store. Tills Is tho lot w hich va used by Horace Wild for htk airship tent when he was hero last year and the ground has been strewn with shavings ever since that time In addition to these shavings there were u lot of chips on the lot, caused by the skinning of poles by the em ployes of the electric light company It was this Utter that took tire, probably from u prk thrown by passing engine, and It was burning fiercely all over the big lot by the time the firemen arrived. In tho cen ter of the lot titood one of the wagons of the electric company loaded with poles and both the wagon ainl tho polen were afire when the water was turned Into tho hose. The firemen were ordered by Eire Marshal Voetsch to put out the hl.i.e around the wagon first and within a short time they had this part of the fire stopped and turned their attention to the rest of the lot It was a long time before the fire among the rocks at one side of tlie lot would cool down.
