There have been two Itobert son-Cole productions this week in : 1 which the photography was exception I ul, worthy to bo classed us real art. while the stories told by the pictures were dramatic and free from any- I thing which could shock the most ; sensitive. We write tills without solicitation from the management and without his knowledge, but we feel that such fine discrimination in the selection of his programs by Manager Guild ' should receive the public acknow ledgement.

HOW WERE YOUR TAXES? To every citizen who hus paid a I , visit to the county treasurer’s office 11 and inquired the amount of his 1920 i taxes there hus been a feeling of con- 1 ; sternatlon at the surprising increase 1 i over previous years and the niugni-1 ( tude of the totals. | The average taxpayer leaves the j oiilce with u feeling of bitterness uud i < u desire to place the blume for whut | < seems reckless expenditures upon 1 " some one who is guilty of bringing ! • about til’s state of affairs. The county commissioners, who ure in charge of the fluunciul operations of the county, naturally become the • i target for a great deal of the criticism ! |by those who have not taken the trouble to analyze the distribution of i tiie public funds raised by direct tax- , ation. The fact is that all resident tax- i payers have contributed to some ex tent in tills orgy of spending. With j tin* purpose of showing just how your money was spent, we have selected i two quarter sections of land which : seem to offer the two extremes In ac tual valuation, and will ofTcr them ( as examples of how the tax receipts ( were used: The southeast quarter of section ( 17-7-44 is situated about one-half mile south of Holyoke and its locution nut urally fixes a high valuation in com- , parlson with land further from town. ( The total tax paid on this qparter was $259. divided as follows: State tux $3*1.20 County 55.30 High school 39.90 Teachers, district 39 66.50 Special 47.50 Interest on school bonds .... 19.00 I Totul $259.40 Th.is statement shows that tile high school tux alone Is only about 25 per cent lower than the cost of all ex penses of the county government in cluding rouds. salaries of county offi cials and all expenditures under t!i * direction of the county commission ers. 'lhe total tax required from this , one quarter of land for grad** school purposes was $133.00 or $40.00 more ■ than tin* stute and county taxes com* * blned. The total amount for school pur.* I poses, including grad** and high. ’ taxed against this nno quarter of land was Just douhl' th • requirements for both stute and count > KANSAS CITY ALL SET FOR BIG AMERICAN LEGION CONVENTION Kaunas Cityuus huvo rolled up their sleeves and doffed their collars preparing tin stage for the biggest convention and flying cirrus ever /itageil In the United States All is ready to entertain Hi** 100,- 1 000 delegates and visitors expected to utteiid the untiuul American Le gion convention.

Another tax receipt before us Is [ for the southwest quarter of 31-6-42. ; twenty miles from market, and locat ; ed in the sand hills, with a valuation fixed at $3,200.0(1. This receipt shows | the division of tax as follows: ; State tax sll.ll j County 18.03 ! County high school 13.44 Teachers, district 1 12.80 : Special, district 1 3.20 Total $60.58 Of th** total. $29.14 is for school • purposes and almost one-half of this Is for count* high schools. These tax receipts are typical of tax conditions the county over, with some variation occasioned by differ ing conditions in Hie local school dis tricts. There has been a feeling of com petition in ppemlliiß public money which is universal, and if tuxes are to be reduced there must In* retrench ment all along the line. A desire oq the part of one section of the county to spend un amount equal to or exceeding that spent in uuother locality lends to waste and , extravagance. Wo must have good and efficient schools, but mere reckless spending of money is not ne* essary to insure this result, and there is a limit to tax burdens which can he borne by the people. Let’s retrench. Judge and Mrs. Weir Entertain Judge and Mrs G. B.

You wutcli with ever increasing in terest how Ezra falls in love with tho heartless little girl who loves to break boys' hearts; how the sincere and devoted Esther finally wins him away; how his friend "Skinny" plays him false; how he is caught robbing tin* apple orchard: how “Whiskers," his dog. follows him to school and hreuks up tiie class; howgjWi-11. why • elate In detail the many delightful . iilnuii-alitles of this masterpiece?

NUMBER 47 WIDE FEDERAL LOANS TO SAVE THE LIVESTOCK INDUSTRY, SAYS MEYERS After bis return to Washington i from his western trip Eugene Meyer, Jr., head of the war finance corpora . lion, gave out un optimistic inter . view. Here are some of the hUh . points in it: Tiie live stock situation is the big , one insofar as credit is concerned. , Adequate financing of the stockman , Involved not only corn and forage. . I found the west full of feed. The . best way to market it Is through live i stock. I found hankers dicouraged • and growers discouraged, but I met • them, anyalyzed their problems, and I belive I left them confident that wre . have found the way out. Farmer* . and hankers have been worrying over I real troubles, but I told them that we ■ had ample funds to save the situation. It is now time to look forward rather than backward; things are getting . better. Since Monday the live stock > market bus shown improvement and . I look for still further rises. I have tried to sound tiie following 1 key-note under which all committees : have been instructed to work. Do not worry over the exceptional and diffl- I cui,t cases but go out ami look for tho places in which to put our funds. Put 1 in a million hero and u million there. That will relieve the situation: that ; will prevent young stock from going 1 to market permaturlly and breeding , stock from being sold so as to en danger future supplies Everywhere in the West I found abundant supplies of feed. In the range country our loan committees I in- actively at work W. shall loan . tiirmr--h live stock loan companies . and through country hanks. We are ( empowered by law to relieve the sit -1 nation consid' rably We lend nionej • through the country batik , the • banker knows tlint if does not have 1 be repaid in ninety days, or sis mouths, or even a year. Loans from 1 the war finance corporation may be • rediscounted for one year, a gain for another year, and again for Hie third • year. Th is will permit the producer i to mow his stuff to market la us orderly fashion. Thin i mIIo minting w ill bring uhout a inor«- comfortable situation in the countr.- bunk and will restore confident-** all along tho line. As soon ns a few mflllnna are put Into any state the situation will case l up all along the line Not only will the direct borrowers leraefited. but tills aid will lighten tic- pressure in tiie hunks and make loans available to other industries At Omaha aftor our nicotine a man said to me that lie would bu> 500 meualng 500 steers to put Into the fe«*d lot.
