Members of the City Commission Council at a special meeting Thurs day passed an ordinance setting the "value for local and municipal tax ation purposes for the year 1920 at 90 per cent of the assessed valua tion as fixed by law." Last year the taxes were collect ed on 75 per cent of the value of the assessment. Commissioner of Public Finance Ricks, who was acting mayor during the illness of Mayor Benrman stated that it was found necessary to raise the percentage of the taxes, due to the increased cost of operating all of the city departments, the em ployes of many of which have lately petitioned for increases in salary. Mr. Ricks said that the increased taxes, so far as he could see, would not give the city any great relief., but that it would help out some in making up deficiencies caused through the lack of funds from sa loons and other licenses.

June Bride or t!c January Bride. It is the old say ing repeated, "Everybody loves love." It is the happiest time of their life :and the sacred ceremony to which they submit themselves, brings to them the realization that they are beginning a united work for the bal ance of their lives. In writing up news articles and society notes of weddings, every at tention is given the bride, but the poor groom usually gets by with the statemeut that he had a best man and wore a black suit. However the groom is also a very Important fac. tor in this beginning of a new life. He furnishes the strong hadI' to make money for the little delicate ha:nd to spend, and, while the groom does not get much attention from the society editors, he rs continually quoted by the merchants who would like his trade. Now this brings us down to the business part of matrimony. While the wedding ceremony may be a very serious and important part of their life, it represents only a few minutes along that long lane over which they ST. T. MAXEY THE NEW YORK STATE BARGE CANAL TO open the western country and provide safe and cheap transpor tation for market-bound products, the improvement of the waterways was an absolute necessity. Governor De Witt Clinton dreamed of a stateown ed canal. The route was inspected and approved by President George Washington, engineer and surveyor. The Erle canal, opened in 125, four feet deep, 42 feel wide and floating boats carrying 80 tons, was the result. Many laughed at it, calling it "Clin ton's Big Ditch." In conjunction with the Niagara river, it connected Lake Erie and the Hudson river. Prior to its opening, Philadelphia was America's greatest seaport. Al ter its completion, the shipping nat urally went to New York and the splendid chain of prosperous cities which won for New York the title of Empire state, sprang up along the route. The canal did such an enor mous business that in 1908, the people of the state decided to make it a barge canal, hence the name. The present main canal is 12 feet deep, 75 to 200 feet wide, a0 mile long and has three branches are gating 100 miles in length. It is oue of the world's greatest euginering taets and is ten times as leog a the Panama canal. It eontalas 5 leeks, each 32 feet long and 4 feet wide, live at Waterford have a combined lift of 1e3 feet and are the greatest series of high-lift oeeks in the weord Three hundred mere bridges, eas aping rairoads sa nd pbe highway as this eana The taotal et a preintesd I5SMO , and is being p by the pesple 9 the aelse .bl must travel. We desire to call the attention of the June bride and the groom as well as of all otner brides and grooms, that in this issue of The Herald, there is specially offered in ducements that will be a money saver for those who are buying wed ding presents, furnishing t their home, and making such other pur chases as are necessarily connected with important events of this kind.

The Herald accepts advertise ments only from merchants of this kind and we stand back of everyone of our advertisers as to the veracity of any statements made in their ad vertisements. We ask the June bride and her friends, and the June groom and his friends to patronize our ad vertisers. ATLAS TIRE CO. OF LA., INC. MAKING RAPID PROGRESS8. One of the leading and most re liable concerns in New Orleans is the Atlas Tire Co., of La., Inc., whose large stock of automobile tires, tubes, etc., is housed at 863 St. Charles street. W. L. Saxon is president of the Atlas Tire Co., Inc., and W. L. Riley is secretary-manager. On April 1st Messers Saxon and Riley pur chased their present business from the Atlas Tire Co., which concern had long conducted in New Orleans a store in their chain of stores through out the country, and since that time the concern has been incorporated under the laws of Louisiana. Announcement is made that the At las Tire Co., of La., Inc., very ma terially increased their already large stock and prestige, when on Monday, May 25, a deal was consummated whereby the entire automobile busi ness of the Para Rubber Co., of La., one of the largest tire dealers in the city, was sold to the Atlas Tire Co. The deal involved a large sum, how ever it was an advantageous pur chase, and patrons and all other tire users are going to reap the benefit. A large display ad in this issue of The Herald tells of the very excep tional tire bargains now being offer ed in this phenomenal sale. The stock of the Atlas Tire Co., :onsists of all brand new factory tires, some firsts and some seconds, but all tires being of standard makes that everybody knows. Through a strict ly cash business policy this concern is enabled to sell at exceptionally cheap prices and therefore are in a position to buy for cash, and pass on to the consumer all these benefits. Mr. Saxon is an old timer in New Orleans and well known and has a world of friends. Mr. Riley came to New Orleans from New York a year ago as representative of the American Sponge & Chamois Co., and has made many friends in the course of that year, and, we are glad to say, is mak. ing new friends every day, being lik ed by everybody. Louis Howrell, for merly assistant manager of the Atlas Tire Co., is still connected with the firm, and is always glad to see his old friends. Below is printed a letter from the 1 ,1 te t .
