It hns two very large taxpayers in Range 22, which I think would he somewhere in Montana nnd one in Range 12 that would bring you close to the Montana line. Of course if our democratic asses sor can go over there and collect taxes, it would be well to cut n little If he got the money. It might he plain truth, hut it looks bnd without a blanket to ai> observer. Why don't he pick out some land thnt lias an actual settler on it, trying to improve the country nnd making n living, instead of some few pieces that are held for specula tion, such as the McNutt and E. Y. Hawley land. Let them try and buy some of that land nnd sec if the taxes correspond with the nctual cash valua tion they put on it. We have no per sonal grievance against our present nssessor but such stuff as that used as a political string is too rotten to tolerate. OBSERVER. 240 ACRE FARM FOR SALE.
