Mae Clausen, editor of The Emporia Times, the weekly published in connection with William Allen White's famous Emporia Gazette, writes to the Enquirer: "Recently a copy of your paper came to my attention. May I tell you that this is one of the most interesting and up-to-date looking papers I have seen in a long time? Allow me to congratulate you upon it. I would like very much to have you put us on your exehang-e list." All of which helps to ease the friction between the editorial nose and the grindstone. COUNTY TAX TO BE BOOSTED 41c -FOR BUDGET FOR 1925 The 1024 budgrt of county expenditures for collection in 1025 as made by the county council at its August meeting Tuesday at Plymouth indicates a jump of 44 cents in the county levies over last year from 31 cents on the hundred dollars worth of property to 75 cents. This includes the three funds general county expense, county gravel road repair and county unit roads. The average township road bond levies will be increased from 26 cents to 32 cents, according to the proposal. Although an actual reduction in general county expense is provided for in the budget a drop from last year's .figure of ?12S,S58 to $123.57G --other considerations such as the balances on hand at the beginning of the year and revenues from other sources than taxation make it necessary to raise $136,776 by taxes for general county expenses for the coming year. The amount necessary to be raised last year was only $35,747.

Partly overcast Thursday and Friday; probably showers and thunder storms by Thursday night; rising ; temperature; moilerate to fresh east shifting to south winds. Thrifty shoppers will find a lot of rare bargains in Bremen stores on Thursday, Sept. 4, the day set aside by merchants of the town as their annual Dollar Day. Business houses are making preparations now for the dollar sales, and there will be so many bargains, in so many different lines of merchandise, that the day will be sure to attract buyers for many miles. Last year the day was a great success, not only for the business houses, but also for all who came to Bremen to get the dollar offerings. There is every reason to believe that the day will prove even more popular this year. Watch for the announcements of these enterprising Bremen merchants in the Knquier next week, and plan now to get your share of the dollar bargains on Sept, 4. Wrong Man Named In Story o f Accident The name of Frank Mattingly was mentioned in the Enquirer three weeks ago as the driver of the car which injured William Brechtel whea the car collided with a motorcycle on which he was riding. Mr. iMattingly informs the Enquir-er that he was not the man in the accident at all, and had nothing whatever to do with it. The driver of the car was Dewey Pharis, a brother-in-law of Mr. Mattingly, and it was probably through his relationship that the identity of the driver was confused by the person from whom the information was receiveel.

All the belts were stripped off of that side of the machine and the separator drum was sprung out of position. The threshing stopped, and then to add to the festivities the blind horse and its mate staged a runaway for which they could hardly be blamed, under the circumstances.
