RENO EVENING GAZETTE FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 1934 PAGE TWELVE TAX MEETING TO BE HELD ELKO, Nev.. Feb. 9. (Special) Elko county taxpayers will meet at the Hunter theatre in this city February 13 to discuss matters ot taxation, according to John J. Hunter, president. Secretary F. N. Fletcher of the Nevada Taxpayers Association will be the chief speaker of the session. The advisability of the state adopting a sales tax will be one of the main topics of discussion. President Hunter says: "With our valuations coming down we must either raise the rates or provide other sources of revenue. Our tax rate is high and the sales tax offers us an out, as reports from all the adjoining states show that It is an effective method of getting funds, and provides a means of taxation which falls equally on everyone. Those who buy luxuries pay the tax In proportion to their spending ability. "I believe it is none too early to take up this question and discuss It among ourselves. It can only be put into effect by an act of the legislature, and if the taxpayers of this county favor this means of raising money, we must take 6teps to secure legislative candidates who will pledge themselves to work for and vote for such a measure. "I hope that every member of the association, and every person interested in public economy, will make it a point to attend this meeting, as everyone will be given an opportunity to be heard on any matter which may be brought before the association." HIGH LICENSE ELY, Nev., Feb. 9. (Special).

If you want to DUCAL ADVICE . . . relieve constipation gently and safely . take the exact dose suited to your need . . . avoid danger of bowel strain use a liquid laxative Can constipation be safely relieved? "Yes!" say medical men. "Yes!" declare thousands who have followed their advice and know. You are not apt to cure your constipation with salts, pills and tablets, or any habit-forming cathartic. But you can safely relieve this condition just by fientle regulation with a suitable iquid laxative. Why Hospitals use a liquid laxative The dose of a liquid laxative can be measured. The action can thus be regulated to suit your individual need. It forms no habit; you need not take a "double dose" a day or two later. Nor will it irritate the kidneys. The right liquid laxative will bring a perfect movement, with no discomfort at the time, or afterward. The unwise use of strong cathartics may often do more harm than good. In buying any laxative, read the label. If "it contains a doubtful drug, don't take it. If you don't know what is in it, don't VALENTINE PARTY GIVEN AT EUREKA EUREKA, Nev., Feb. 9.
