To the tax payers of Obion County; I take this method to notify you that there will be an effort at the July term cf the Obion County Court to raise your taxes AGAIN. I understand that this vill be done by a few designing politicians, of fice holders, and office seekers. Their scheme is to raise the taxes on all the property in Obion County, and especially the land to build a load in one neghborhood. This neighborhood 'through which the contemplated road is to run does not consist of more than five per cent of the tax pnyers fcr thirty-three per cent of the . public road in the coun ty. Now, should you think it right for the county court to vote a tax upon all the people in Obion County for the benefit of five per cent of the people, you instruct your magis trates accordingly, but I know and you know that no such taxation without representation direct from the taxpayers themselves is 'right. So it behooves you betwoeu now and the first Monday in July to see your magistrates in the district where you live and tell them what you want and whether you want to be "held up" and "taxed to death" by this bunch of politicians. I further advise you if you don't want your taxes almost double for all tho tax payers in Obion County to be at the county court the first Monday and stay until this matter is settled and sea that you get a square and JJust deal. (Woodrow Wilson carries all such matters direct to the people where it belongs.) I am further in-' formed that the fellows behind this scremo havo frmoed a syndicate and are buying cheap land along the routo of this proposed read, and are expecting the tax payers of the county to build roads by it so as to double and thribblo the price they have paid for it. You know the federal government has had to raise our taxes very considerably (which is right) to pay the expense of whipping the Hun, and if you don't know it, when all the laws go into effect that were passed by the last General Assembly they will be put a tax of $2.00 for you to drive your wagon1 on the public roid. $1.00 for you to drive your horse and buggy on .it, the very thing the road was made for. They doubled your automobile tax. They actual ly put a privilege tax of $10.00 a year to swap horses. They've fur ther put a tax of $1.00 for a coun try boy to shoot a rabbi' ; they also put a tax of $1.00 for a widow or a crippled girl to fish with a pin hook baited 'with a red worm with a piece of wheel band for a line and a rusty nail for a sinker. Now, Mr. Taxpayer, this looks a little funny, but its the truth, and if you sit still end raise no protest, its only a few short years until you will have to pay a special tax to milk your own cows, eat at your own table, er Sleep in your own bed. Allow me to call your attention to the fact that this same General Assembly that put all these new tax es did repeal tho fee bill that was saving the tax payers thousands of dollars a year. They also re-instated and attempted to galvanize iato respectability Judg.) Jesse Ed dington, of Memphis, who was a confesed perjurer, . bribe taker, and defacer of public records of his own court. In other words, they fixed him so he can hold office again, and you know it cost the tax payers of Tennessee $150,000 to get this judge out of office a couple of years ago. S. B.

Army in Middle and West Tennessee, receiv ed authroity Thursday from the War Department to accept applicants for any camp, post, organization, or station within five hundred miles of the main of f ico at Nashville. This order means that if a young man wanted to enlist in the army and desired to be stationed at Fort Oglethorpe, Fort McPherson or any other post within five hundred miles of Nashville, he would be enlisted with the understanding that he would receive assignment to the place or organization he cared to join. This order is not effective after July 10, and in the meantime many are expected to take advantage of this oportunity to become assigned, to their favorite post or outfit. Re quests are received at the U. S. Army recruiting station, 155 Eighth Avenue, North, frequently for spe cial assignment, the authority for which was received in a telegram received Thursday. Ordinarily when a man enlists he has to depend upon fate to get him assigned to a plice or outfit of his own choosing, but under the pres ent regulation he may do the choos ing himself with the assurance that he, wil be sent directly to that place.

REYNOLDS PACKING COMPANY OFFERS $1 5,000 of Their Capital Stock , To the citizens of Obion and adjoining counties At Par, From May 30th to June 28th Inclusive Cash or the following terms: One-third due July 1, 1919, without interest; two thirds Oct. I, 1919, interest after July 1. We paid an 8 per cent dividend the first year 1918. We are doing now 2 1-2 times the business that we did 1 2 months ago, and at that rate we are doing but a small part of what is open for us. This is not a local institution, but should serve the people within a radius of 1 00 miles square. No business enterprise in the state ever offered brighter prospects. No safer, more reasonable proposition ever offered you. THINK IT OVER. ACT TO-DAY. For many years we have planned for this thing, that we are now seeing grow into a great industry. It will be several times larger in the next three years. The beauty about it is that it is right here where you can see and know just what is being done and that you are helping to develop a home institution and receive good dividends besides. The packing business is peculiar in this respect that it handles its business on the smallest margins of profit of any business but that it is turned over oftener (almost twelve times per year), thereby making good returns in the end. The banks of the country have commenced to let money on live stock. This is a great forward step and should be encouraged to the extent that it not only helps the large dealers but the smallest as well. It will cause the live stock industry to double in the next three years and at the same time greatly increase the deposits of the banks. Cooperation is the thing we most need. When we help the other fellow, it also serves to help ourselves. Indorsed as it is by bankers, farmers, merchants, clerks, and people in all walks of life, it is sure of success. Remember the sale is on today. Only a few more days to get in.. Sale closes Saturday, June 28. Telephone the plant or any of the directors if interested.
