JOHNSON'S STORE No, 8 "On the Square" Cookeville, Tenn. fHg3ML.sT;ggKii.'-a.fgisgyB.as fUrar-.-TTr.L JJB'i-.UMf.miCT STILL CHEWING THE RAG The Livingston bunch are certainly poor LOSERS. They are still chew ing the rag about the baseball game they l03t in Cookeville. Speaking of the game the Enterprise of last week says: "The result was predestined and fore ordained before the team left home the only surprise was - its closeness Through a combination of baseball players, rooters and umpires (with the stress oa umpir '8) Cookeville TOOK the game 4 to 2. The Livingston team played clean ball." The Presbyterian talk is intended as an insult to Cookeville and our ball team, and comes in poor grace after the arrangements made on the train to eteal the game. The intimation that the umpires were unfair la mere rot. Here are the acts about the runs made. Livingston made two runs, both on errors. The umps. did not stop these scores. Cookeville made four runs. The first was fairly earned by Russell. The second was the result of a bunt by Wilhite which he beat out, and a cork lng threebagger by Alcorn. The third -was a clean homerun by Copeland, and the fourth another homerun by Wil- . bite. Which of the umpires is entitled to credit for these three smashing hits by the Cookeville boys. As to clean ball playing, Livingston played the dirtiest game ever seen on the Cookeville grounds. Llv'ngston lost because Cookeville outplayed hem in every department of the game. Jones pitched rings around Bohannon, and can do It again. See. P. S. Very latest. Friday night. Monterey beat Livingston today 4 to 0 FOUR TO NOTHING. JONES he pitched. Nuff said. PAY BEFORE JULY FIR8T Attention. Is called to the fact that all Federal special tax samps Issued to "liquor dealers and others will expire on the 30th day. of this month. 'All liquor dealers who expect to con tinue In business on or after July 1st must procure a special tax stamp for whatever business engaged in, not lat er than June 30th. Those found in business on July 1st without having paid special tax and having stamp posted in their places of business will be immediately arrested and prosecut ed. This applies to wholesale and re tail l'quor dealers and to wholesale and retail dealers in malt liquors. Sec tion 3242a, Revised Statutes of the IT. S., provides a penalty of $5,000 fine and imprisonment not exceeding two years for those who engage in the liq uor business without paying the spec ial tax and procuring stamp before the commencement of euch business or be- 'fore the commencement of a new tax year. The law 's most positive and will be strictly enforced by the Reve nue Department, and prompt action will be taken against all persons who violate it. The carrying on of a busi ness for one day without payment of special tax is just as much a violation of the Federal law as carrying on of said business for a month without a stamp, and will be so considered. The practice" of filing applications (Form 11) for stamp and delaying pay ment oftax for some' time, will not be countenanced. To avoid prosecution, the tax must be paid and stamp pro cured by commencement of business on July 1st. - To make sure that stamp will be received in time application should be filed 'mmediately with the local Division Deputy Collector in h's office at the Custom House, or forward ed td Hon. E. B. Craig, Collector Inter nal Revenue, Nashville, Tenn., togeth er with money order, currency, ex change or certified check for the whole amount o fthe tax. Personal or un certified checks cannot be accepted . Attention of persons spbject to the Income Tax is also called to the fact that this tax must be paid by June 30th to avoid penalty. It is very important that this be attended to at once. Re mittance must be made by certified check, currency, exchange or money order. These are Instructions of the Collect or of Internal Revenue.'
