This is very obvious if we look at the closinjr part of the section mentioned as follows: "Said restrictions, as to rates, shall apply to taxes of every kind and descrip tion, whether general or special, except taxes to pay valid indebtedness now exist lutr, or bones which may be 'ssuea in re- TWO TEXANS Who Terrorized Northern Texas lor Years at Last Succumb to Special to the Bazoo.
