A Card
To the Voters of the Parish of Call
Owing tothefactthat the office of
Tax Assessor of the Parish of C'aldwell,
now pays more than ever before., regar
less of the two percent commission al
lowed, under Act No. 252 of the Acts
of 1910, on the assessment of special
school tax for the year 1914, and as
I the people of the Parish have seen tit.
or have been forced, for the past sev
eral years to levy these special taxes,
! in order to carry on and maintain the
public schools of the Parish, I see co
reason why the Tax Assessor should
n demand this two percent, or $:351.0;
I per year, from the school children of
e the Parish, whose parents are straining
every effort to meet the paymeut of
these taxes, in order to carry on this
good cause.
Now, therefore, if the people see fit
t to elect me, as Tax Assessor of the
( Parish of Caldwell, I dohereby and by
this declaration, bind and obligate my
e self to assess the special school tax of
b the Parish free of charge.
