The night was long, the morning- came As he went home to rest. , A voice he heard, .it was the Lord's Who came to call him home. We miss his face, But we do not want him back For he has gone to a fairer home. Patiently he suffered, his troubles he bore, But now it is ended, he suffers no more. To sleep we leave him in peace and at rest, The parting was painful but God knows best. MEASURE TAKEN UP TO INITIATE LOCAL BUILDING Plans Being Drawn by Ben Henry for Changing Structure. A bill permitting- Cerro Gordo or any other county, to hold elec tions on the borrowing- of monej with which' to remodel courthouse was passed by the lower house o the Iowa general assembly Satur day. The measure had previouslj been passed by the senate. The measure is designed particu larly for the reconstruction of the courthouse in Mason City and wa introduced for that purpose. The fact that no provision exist ed in the statutes for the calling- o an election to decide the matter o a bond issue for the remodeling o; the courthouse, held up plans foi an election on the matter a vear ag-o. Contemplated remodeling- plans call for an addition to the north and a general reconstruction of the nterior. Ben Henry, local architect has been at work on plans. Not only the fact that the building has insufficient room particularly for the holding- of district court sessions but the fact that the structure has no fireproof vaults is making a remodeling program necessary, it was stated.

ANALYSIS MADE OF TAX METHOD BY FARM BUREAU Goal of Revision Would Save $134,869 in Cerro Gordo. The executive committee of the Iowa Farm Bureau federation has announced the results of an exhaustive analysis of the tax situation in Iowa as made for that organization by tax experts. The report presents the goal set by the joint resolution passed hy the forty-third general assembly for tax revision, elimination of the mill- age levy for state purposes. If this goal is reached it will mean, based on taxes levied in 192D and collected in 1930, a saving to the tax paying property of Cerro Gordo county of $134,869 or 8 per cent of its total tax bill which was $1.168,934, it was stated. This sum of money is equivalent to 18 per cent of it's district sohooll tax which was $746,323. 77 per cent of its county road tax which was $174,880, 35 per cent of its city tax which was $385,393, 171 per cent of its general county tax which was $78,948. The total general state tax was $10.134,375. This is equal to 9.15 per cent of total direct general property tax which was $110,754,829, 21.23 per cent of district school tax which was $47,738,163, 63.12 per cent of Lhe county road tax, which was $16 056,773, 67.04 per cent of city tax which was $15.117,965, 175.62 per :ent of general county tax, which was $5,770,550, 715.67 per cent of county court tax, which was $1,416 073, 372.86 per cent of its poor tax which was $2,717,994. The three last named items are $223,758 less than state levy. The Iowa Farm Bureau federa- :ion further points out that income .ax legislation proposed can bring savings to tax paying property in every county in the state.

After having ruled out the case the city ordinance on the speed of trains, Judge Joseph J. Clark Friday evening took under advisement the motion of the defendant for a directed verdict in the case of M. D. Wclcher vs. the Chicago and Northwestern railroad. Wclcher is seeking to recover i total of $1,348 for injuries and dam ages to his automobile resulting when a locomotive of the North western railroad struck his car at the crossing on First street n o r t h west. The arguments over the admissioi of the ordinance started befor noon Saturday and continued unti' late in the afternoon, when tht judge ruled that the ordinance should have been re-enacted anc submitted for approval of the rail road commission at the time tin state law requiring commission ap proval of railroad ordinances wa passed. L. R. Boomhower, attorney fo; Mr. Welcher, had argued that tin Mason City ordinance was passed ir 1915 and that the state law, passe m 1921, only applied to ordinances drawn up in the future. James C Davis, defendant's attorney, however, contended the state law completely wiped out previous city rulings on the matter. Apparently this was the view the judge finally took on makiv; his ruling. It was recalled by attendants at the courthouse that a similar ca;;c came up for hearing three years ago.
