Although the Blytheville school district retired $10,000 of Its bonds during the fiscal year of 1931-1932 and issued no other bonds its ratio of bonded indebtedness to assessed valuation increased from 1.3 to 8.4 per cent. The 1 increased percentage resulted from a decrease of 5610.337 in the assessed valuation. This decrease, fiured at 18 mills on the dollar, represented a loss of $10,988.07 in revenue for the district. In view of several large reductions of assessments for next year, another decrease in taxes is anticipated for the coming year. Had the local taxes teen collected In full for • the current year, a total of $57,501.13 less two per cent commissions for both the collector and treasurer would have accrued to the district. Actual collection's, after the commissions werfe deducted... were }38.930.60 for personal arid" real v ''taxes. and »2,- {H3.44 for poll tax. Out of this sum the district has-to pay $26,858.75 for its bonds • and Interest Other items that come before the payment of teachers salaries are: Insurance $1,8IS. Taxes $250,. Fuel 81,150, Janitors and Supplies $3,- GCO,. Maintenance . $800, -Instructional Materials J550, Expense of Board, Census, etc. §445. After these It.ems are paid come the salaries of the teaching force making a grand total of $61 423.95 On this amount approximately S15.0CO is expected "from the state common schcol fund. 'At the present time the actual tax'- collections are S6.02B short of the budgtt estimated for the year. School authorities arc hoping that enougl delinquent taxes will be. collected to cover this. amount. Another recent discouraging, development was the charge off of Sl.074.50 against the local district "f its Khar e of the county treasurer's deposits in the closed Bank of Osceola. County authorities state that this money is protected by n bond nnd they are hopefii lor a collection en same in the r.rnr future.

Mrs. Parkhurst's body w a s found lying on the ilcor of her tedrcom by her husband, _ well known store proprietor, v;he'n he entered .the house about 7 o'clock last night. A physician summoned by Mr. ParBuirst said 'she had been dead an hour. "Tired of Livin;" The only motive that could be established for the suicide was contained in the brief unaddres- sed message found in her room. which read simply: "I am tired ot living, Hattle". No' far from her body lay the pistol with which the woman ended her life. The position of the body indicated that Mrs. Parkhurst was standing before a mirror In the bathroom door when ;he pointed the gun forward immediately behind the ' right ear and fired. Death is believed to have been almost instantaneous. Onlv TVee ^ Ten Republics Free From Internal or External Strife. GAME, 7-5 The bullet tore away the lower portion of the ear and ranged forward and upward, lodging under the bridge of the nose'. ' Authorities expressed the belief that Mrs. Parkhurst resorted.'-tb .a gun to.end her 'life only aft<i' abandoning • another attempt. A bottle of disinfectant in the room and the seared condition of the woman's lips were taken as significant, by officials, of an earlier attempt. Return • Suicide Verdict Mrs. Pnrkhurst, who worked daily in her husband's stores, had gone] home atiout 5 o'clock in' the af- tenioon. Indications ' were, officials said, that she had prepared calmly for the act. Her bcdy was clothed in n gown when found. The bed. covers had been' turned back and she apparently had been lying down. A coroner's jury, impaneled by Coroner W. H. Slovatl, heard the testimony of the woman's husband, Dr. P. D. Smith., who wos called to the house nnd others. . The jury returned a verdict stating that, Mrs. Pnrkhurst .died of a wound at her own hands. - BUENOS AIRES, Oct. 1 (UP) —War or the threat of a confllo 1 blanketed South America today with onlv three of the ten republics of the continent free of internal troubles.

There are one or two factors to complicate matters this year. First of all, mnny fnrmcrs feel thnt the government at Washington lias fed them on false promises. A banker In Sioux City remarked recently thai thc corn bell Is fed up on promises, and declared that "if there is an upset out here It'll be Jusl because It has been forced by the government." Secondly, there Is unquestionably a revival of thc sorl of radical thought on money matters that nourished the free sliver movement of 1896. I .stood in thc editorial rooms of a Sioux City newspaper irtile a dirt farmer came in to nrgtie for a scheme for devaluating the rtllnr so ns to lighten the ngricultur.11 :lcbt load; nnd this farmer, clad In overalls and looking the very Incarnation of the stage rustic, presenfxl his arguments in n wny which showed he had devoted hours of earnest thought to thc mnltcr. He was, in fact, a typ«, a sym bcl. He Is worth mentioning be- cnuse many other farmers feel as he does and think as he does. To a certain extent, at least, thc old- time conservatism of the corn be!t has gone by the boards; and to thnt extent the traditional Republicanism of this territory has been wsakened.
