If you believe that the tax now paid by the money lenders, the owners of palatial residences and costly buildings in the towns and cities of state, the owuers of big stocks of merchandise, .the owners of the big manufacturing plants, the owners of the railroad properties, and those having their wealth invested in any form of property, other than land should be paid by the farmers and those owning lots in the towns and cities, then, of course, you will favor the single tax. If you believe the man living in a three or four room house on a town or city lot should pay the same tax on that lot as his his neighbor who lieves in a $5,000 $10,000, $15,000 or $25,000 home on an adjoining lot pays on his home (each would pay only on the lot), then you will be for the sin gle tax. If you believe each individual should pay taxes on the property he owns, regardless of the character of the property, then you will oppose the single tax. The editor of the Torchlight be lieves that each individual should pay taxes on the property he or she owns, regardless of the character of the property. Therefore he is op posed to the single tax. This how ever, has been apparent to those of i our readers who have watched the columns of the Torchlight. We J have published a number of arti j ties in opposition to the single tax land shall publish others Shelbina Torchlight. Judge S. C Fields is the Demo cratic nominee for Representative of Polk County. While the county is normally 500 or 600 Republican , Judge Fields will probably be elect ed One thing is sure the county could not elect a man who would do more for his constituents and he would always be found representing the intesests of the masses. M. W. Caldwell county highway engineer was here Saturday o let the contract for putting in the abut ments for the bridge across the creek near the Porter Bush farm. John Dirigo has the contract and that is assurance that, the work will be done right as John always does good honest work. ABOUT THE CHURCHES Interesting News Concerning the Different Denominations.

' New Parsonage. v The members of the Christian church are about to build a new parsonage on the lot where the old one now stands. The new building is to be a six-room structure of bungalow style. The contract has been let to Mr. Lawseo and is to be completed early in November. This splendid enterprise, together with, the great missionary offenntof last V May and the voluntarily ipyeased running expenses, will at th close of the fiscal year, make a showing of which each member should fee! justly proud.

Test of Water at Deep Well Not '; Satisfactory - More Thorough , Test To Be Made. The water at the deep well has been found to contain such a quan tity of salt as to mak it unfit for use . in a Water Works system. Thinking that possibly the salt water nearer the surface has not been entirely ' cut off the 1000 feet of six-inch pipe is to be pulled, rubber pad put on and again be put in the well to insure all salt water from abov' being cut off. A large pump will then be worked for 48 hours or un til the Board is satisfied. It may be decided to go deeper in case wa ter is not satisfactory. The well is now between 1530 and 1600 feet. Pure soft water in large quantity will be worth untold dollars to Moiv roe City. Monroe City has reached the point where we must have a water works and sewerage system and a 24 hour electric service. It is needed to get more labor employ ing institutions here. These we must have if Monroe City is to con tinue to be Northeast Missouri's best inland city.
