TO V°? als were lafd before the Arkansas Tax association at Little Rock Monday Governor Parnell and Chairman Hammock of the Tax Commission declared. the assessors should put all property on the tax books atihe (full 50 per cent valuation demanded '* o *^^ A A ^ t. ; Chllders ' also oi the Tax Commission, rec- cotnmended that tax assessors and collectors be placed on a cifil service basis. These are worth-while recommendations. They ought to be carried out. But they won't be. *a K^l? 1 * 16 £? y taxes only with that degree of loyalty inspired by the performance of their government, particularly their 'local government. The performance in Hempstead county is not calculated to inspire higher assessments, either now or any time soon. . . _ _ As this newspaper has been trying to show, the county is in the hands of a reactionary judge who pays himself the .highest salary this office ever has commanded, while the Bounty, government is performing the least public service of , wmctt there is record in recent times. -We have lost virtually every public service for the tax money except the constitutional offices. T n j s i s the third year that the county has failed tqiemplqy agricultural agents: although the general fund now is relieved of half the judge's salary, the other half'being 'drawn front the highway turn- back. ; . a The county drew-from the State Highway Department $28,000 in turnback funds for local roads last year, and built no roads. It will draw $45,000 this year—and while the judge claimed that his administration had finally succeeded in building some roads, he made the mistake of speaking before the winter rains set in. Rain always tells the truth about road-building. County services? have gone to wrack and ruin. County roads are now just where they were twenty years ago—yet \in this period the salary of the county judge has mounted ".,;ifrom $1,800 to $2,400 and today is $3,000. For what? The riddle is made still more exasperating by the fact that to guarantee this nefw high salary of $3,000 the county judges of the state required the last legislature to raise the gasoline tax from 5 to 6 cents. Full 50-per-cent assessments might help the county government, but in view of the fact that the judge has already helped himself nobody else is going to pay it much mind. Historical Myths R AFAEL SABATINI, the author who permitted post-war readers to turn back to tales of piracy and other varieties if romantic adventure, declares that history is so full of myths that it takes years of research to find out whether any colorful incident of the past is fact or fiction. Among the "historical" tales which are pure fiction, says Mr. Sabatini, are the famous yarn about the man in the iron mask, the William Tell episode and the story that Richard III of England made away with his two youthful nephews. This, of course, is interesting information; and yet, when you stop to think about it, it makes very little difference whether these and similar historical anecdotes really have any truth in them or not. True or false, they point a moral, so to speak. They summarize certain times, certain people and certain events in such a' way that they will live even if we prove them to be sheer invention. The tale of the man in the iron mask, for instance— who hasn't felt a cold shudder or two at this story about the Bastille's hopeless prisoner? The story may be a fake—but it tells us more about the way France was governed in those old days than a whole volume of dry facts. .LL. x s i milarlv > there is Marie Antoinette's supposed remark that the starving peasants ought to eat cake—a remark which, historians assure us, was never made. Suppose she didn't say it? The whole ruling class had just such a stupid and flippant attitude toward the misery of the lower classes then; and once you understand that fact, the French revolution is easier to understand. And William Tell—his story, true or false, expresses the Swiss fight for freedom so graphically that no one who has once read it will ever forget it. Tell may never have existed, , but he is a valuable historical character just the same. So it goes. These old anecdotes may never have happened, but they could have happened; and because they provide such illuminating highlights for more sober history the world will go on using them for a long time. A coupfe of lessons for isolationists are found in current news. China's new regime discourages such old customs as the bur.nlog of sandlewood joss sticks at temples and shrines. Hundreds of sandlewood cutters are jobless in Australia, GreatJJritain adopts a high protective tariff. Belgian glass works are thereupon forced to close. BARK ' War Hero as He Is Today Bridge enemies in New settling their diferences weeks' match. Which is enough to burn them up. They're going to fgiht it out to th< last rubber. And -the losing system will probably, get bounced. Although the reputations of the experts may be damaged, it will onl> be in play. Many a word is likely to be muttered in their bridgework. And the man that stands on the bridge at midnight \vill be still standing there at dawn, so far as anybody But with their experience, either player could! become bridge tender, even if he's tough.

Dear Santa Claus:—I am a little girl Piles Go Quick Without Salves or Cutting Itching, bleeding, protruding piles are caused by bad circulation of the blocd in the affected- parts. The parts become weak, flabby, almost dead. Only an internal remedy can remove the cause—that's why salves, suppositories and cutting fail. Dr. Leonhardt's prescription, HEM-ROID, succeeds because it removes congestion, restores circulation, heals and strengthens the diseased parts. HEM-ROID has such a wonderful record of quickly ending even piles of long standing, that Ward & Son say one bottle of HEM-ROID Tablets must end your File agony or money back. Adv.
