The property of this county has been more completely listed for tax than over before, but we doubt if the same tax rate can be made meet the demands. The advanced price of merchandise will make tho same amount supplied on pauper claims cost 50 per cent more than they , have been costing, and war conditions will tend to increase the demands in this lino instead of lessening them. Tools, powder, teams and lumber for road work have advanced at loast 30 per cent. Books, paper and printing for court supplies are 75 per, cent bighei; coal for the various offices is costing 5O per cent. more. This county will have to pay interest on $100,000. indebtedness in road bonds and $25,000 outstanding vouchers and claims. This is more interest than it ever paid before Our citizens are investing many thousands of dollars in Liberty Bonds and War Savings Stamps that are tax free. That will cut tho tax rate to some extent, so it is a question as to how the new Fis cal Court can meet the present conditions. To be a progressive county all interest should be paid and principal of debt redueed each year, and considering the fact that prices have advanced more than listed on tax book we mean many cows listed at $40.00 would sell for $80.00 and other stock in the same ratio, we think the court has no alternative to raise tax rate, and if they do so they should not be criti cised. m Aurora borealis put up a fine display last night.

Owing to transportation difficulties cauaed by the war the corn crop moved more slowly to market this year than ever before. Now, however, the cereal Is reaching the millers and consumers.
