COUNTY OFFICIALS DETERMINED All Owners of Vehicles Must Pay Tax. No Effort. Will Be Made to Secure Indictment, More Drastic Method Be Used. (From Tuesday's Daily Herald.) The payment of county wheel tax has been greatly stimulated by the recent statement made by County Court Clerk ' Lipscomb through Tho Herald, in which Mr. Lipscomb stated that county officials are determined that this tax niuwt be paid. That the wheel tax is law, just as there is law against murder, and that the law must be enforced. ' ' ; Having liecome thoroughly exasper ated at the manner In which vehicle owners of the county have evaded the payment of the wheel tax,, Mr. Lips comb said "every tub must stand on Its own bottom." No further delays will be tolerated, and the owner of ve hicles who does not come forward within the stipulated time and make payment of this tax will find himself starring into the face of a distress warrant, under which any property owned by the vehicle owner may be seized and sold for the payment of the wheel tax. In the event it becomes necessary to issue distress warrants against ve hicle owners, the costs Will run high, and those who have evaded payment will find this evasion has' cost them several times as much as the tag which would have granted them im munity f torn prosecution. ! " County officials . have decided that it is practically vorthless to try to seek indictment of those who fail to pay this tax, and therefore will use tho old Hats of vehicle owners, and certain information obtained since tho first of the year in issuing the dis' tress warrants against those who fail to pay. v In issuing the distress - warrants, County Court Clerk Lipscomb said there would be absolutely no discrim ination. Rich and poor, old and young alike who fail to pay the tax will have one of these warrants issued against them. ' y Since the first warning issued by Mr. Lipscomb, the payment of the tax has been materially increased, but has not yet become , heavy. The county tax has been paid on only 112 automobiles in. the county, whereas state license Bumbors have been issued for more than 1.500 already, with approximately 500 more to be issued. The county tax has also been paid on 125 buggies and 94 wagons, making a total of 331 ve hicles upon which the county tax has been paid upon. It is estimated that there are between 7,000 and 8,000 ve hicles in the county subject to the county wheel tax. DELIVER ADDRESS AT WATER VALLEY SCHOOL ((From Friday's DailVy Herald.) Trof. John P.

CIRCUIT COURT FINOS TIMMONS GUILTY ASSAULT JURY FIXES PUNISHMENT AT ONE YEAR IN STATE PRISON VER DICT LATE SATURDAY. MOTION FOR NEW TRIAL MADE Will Be Argued Bebore Judge Turner on March 30 Trial Consumed Two Entire Days Considerable Interest Manifested. (From Monday's Daily Herald.) The jury, late Saturday afternoon In the case of the state against J. C. Timmons, charged with assault to commit murder in the first degree, re turned the following verdict, "We the jury, find the defendant guilty of as sault with intent to commit murder in the second degree, and so fix his punishment at one year In the peuiten tiory." Consul for the defense immediately entered motion for a new trial, which will be argued before Judge Turner on March 30. : The trial consumed practically two entire days, and attracted many spec tators to the court room. Especially was the Knob Creek and Santa Fe section well represented. ' The prosecutor In the case was John Stone, prominent young farmer 6f the county, who married a sister of the defendant Clifford Timmons, who is also widely known and highly re spected citizen of the county, and is prominently connected. It was alleged by the prosecution that Mr.- Timmons assaulted the pros ecutor Stone without provocation, hav ing in his possession a shot gun at tho time, which the prosecution claimed the dependant would probably have used had it not been for the defend ant's brother. The so-called "family quarrel" 1st said to have arisen over the question of tutting certain timber on the farm of the defendant or the defendant's wife. Mr. Stone's wife testified for the state against her brother, but when the verdict of the jury was returned she broke down nd wept bitterly. The. case was a hard fought one, every point being contested by a bril liant array of legal talent engaged. The prosecution was conducted by Attorney General Looney B. White, assisted by Major Horace Frierson, who was acting attorney general when the idictment was returned, aid J. C. Voorhies. The defandant was repre sented by Judge Sam Holding anl It. S. Hopkins.

"I am trying to economize, but can't do without The Herald, for 1 enjoy and appreciate it too much," writes Lynn M. Hobbs, well known Culleo ka farmer enclosing his check for a renewal of his subscription.' (From Monday's Daily Herald.) . 'There was a large and enthusiastic crowd in attendance the community club meeting Saturday afternoon President Emmett V. Foster presided and a number of subjects were discuss ed. The most important 'matter before the club was that of growing straw berries. Prof. James, of the Indus trial department of the Louisville & Nashville railroad, delivered a talk on the strawberry industry; He told of the great development of this crop in the Pembroke, Kentucky, section. He said that the farmers there were mak ing from $300 to $1,000 an acre from their crop of berries, and that he be lieved that the soil and climate of the Culleoka section were equally well adapted to the growth of the berry. In fact it would mature "a week or two earlier than the Pembroke crop. Dr. W. O. Largen, who has had a great deal of experience In the grow ing and marketing of strawberries, also spoke and he too urged that the farmers of the 'Culleqjca community try the growing of the berry. He ex pressed the opinion that every element was as favorable n it is in Kentucky and he believed that even better prices might be obtained due to the fact that the crop would go to the market ear lier. .From the tone of tho discussion and the interest manfested It Is prac tically certain that before the end of the year a large acreage In berries will be sown. It is. urged that at least 1 00 acres be sown In crops of from one to three to five acres. It is not advis ed that the farmers try too large an acreage at the beginning, but work up to a larger acreage as they gain in experience. Nearly every one present brought a donation of eggs for the shower given for the benefit of the civic league.
