The law provides that a tax of $3 on each female dog shall be'paid to the Circuit Court of each county by the first day of July. Very few dog owners have complied with the law in this county. Most people seem to be of the opinion that all dogs on which tax has not been paid will be killed by the officers, thus ending the matter. However, this is not the case. The law makes no provision for the killing of dogs, but does say that each owner ot female dog or dogs who fails to comply with the law is subject to. indictment by the grand jury. At torney General Caldwell asks The Commercial to say that all indict ments found will be held up as long as possible, and those paying tax at once will be passed over and the balance will be returned, the day the grand jury adjourns. Pay up and save costs. , ,' - Stops earache! a twominutes: tooth ache or pain of burn or ca!d in five uiiout; hoarsened, one hour: luuscle ache, two hours; sure throat, twelve hours Dr. Thomas Klectrlc Oil, mon arch over pain.
