A DESERVED COMMENDATION
The Peerless theutre hus been show
-1 ing some exceptional pictures the
past few weeks.
The comedy features are clean and
i w holesome and not of the ship stick
i variety, while almost every evening
1 there bus been u screen play of real '
merit. 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.

Official Paper of Phillips County
HOLYOKE, PHILLIPS COUNTY COLORADO, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 7, 1921.
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

Who is to blame for these expend!-;
i tores?
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.

Hi** urt of the true artist can create.
You wutcli with ever increasing in

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.
There ure two funduMU-ntul troubles
