Jasper Henderson of Monroe City was in Paris last Friday. He says lots of corn is being bought ot Monroe and that two suellers are being kept busy. The price paid is 82 cents. The new Courtv C'turt, we ire informed, will increase the tax rate the full limit permitted bv the constitution, which will he only 5 cents on the 100 high er than the levy of last year. In order to provide a fund for the payment of the five bridges recently ordered the court proposes to devote 10 cents on the $100 for bridge purposes and 10 cents for road?. This would enable the County to pay for the five bridges in a year and a half. Paris Appeal. The DEM OCRAT believes in bridges and works for bridges and frankly admits that Monroe County is, one of the best bridged county s in the state. Also that the Monroe County bridges reminds us ot a man on dress parade with a silk-tile and a see more coat. Why? Because the vari ous county courts see nt to spend more money on their heads on a few spots, t han on the many miles of roads that under a lOot levy, have been shooting the chutes to the bow wows for many years. There are several mouths in the year when a loaded team can net approach those bridges while there are only from 5 to ! 15 days in the year wheu those streams are past fording. The county court of this county has for ages almost ignored the claims of the county roads, while silk tiles have beenworn profusely. It would not only be economy, but displaying wise business sagacity if bridges, new bridges were dropped from the county's expense account for five 5--- years and every dollar attain able put on the main therough fores ot the county- it s useless to ask a county court tor money for roads or cuivens unless you nave an equal amount ot private money to put up and that phase of the question is a burning shame for which, in this county, they will not receiv-e one half of their tax Put awayjyour silk-tiles, see more coats (and get out of tbe bob tailed column and down to POKY COLLECTOR.

If the County Collector can not or will not come to this city for a few dayseacb December, then let him send a deputy bere for ten days or fifteen d?y s in that month.
