The gross value of the estate was $419,834 but the taxable value was reduced by special provisions of the will and other legal deductions. The estate of Ephriarn.

PEOPLES GAS AND ELECTRIC Ca $40,000 SCHOOL BONDS SOLD AT LOW RATE HERE Premium on 2 Per Cent Issue Brings Net Interest to 1.8 Per Cent. Mason City school district refunding bonds were established as securities of the highest grade Wednesday when a $305 premium was paid by the Carleton D. Beh company of Des Moines in the purchase of issues aggregating $40,000 with an average maturity at four and a half years and an interest rate of 2 per cent. The bonds will run from two to eight years and the $305 premium brings the net interest rate down to $1.8 per cent. They were issued to retire the $40,000 issue of 1916 which financed the purchase of the site of the present high school. The issue which was retired drew 4 l /2 per cent interest, so the low interest rate of the refunding issue represents a considerable saving for the district. Bonded Debt Down. At the time of the 1916 issue, another $250,000 issue was sold to finance the construction of the high school building, pushing the bonded indebtedness of the local district to a total of $834,000 at that time, the highest point ever reached in the history of the district. On May 1- of this year, the final $18,000 of the $250,000 issue will be retired, reducing the district's bonded indebtedness to $498,000. Maximum indebtedness allowed by statute for this district is approxt mately $900,000. Evidence that the new refunding issue was highly regarded in financial circles was seen as the sale was opened Wednesday afternoon by R L. James, secretary of the school board. Representatives from seven firms, in addition to the Beh company, were on hand. The bonds were offered without any interest rate being set. Telephones Busy. The first bid, offering to buy them as 2'i's with a premium, was the signal for several spmtec rounds of bidding which reached its height when all three telephones in the school administration building were busy as the bidders contacted their home offices for authorizations to raise their respec' '^Following are the final offers of the competitors bidding on the bonds as 2's: Beh company, W°,30n, White-Phillips, Davenport, $40,300, Wheelock-Cummins, Des Moines $40,262; First National and Northwest Savings banks 1»« jointly), Mason City, S 10 ' 17 °' McDermott and Sparks, Des Moines $40,151; Vieth, Duncan, Worley and Wood Davenport, $40,125 and Jackley Des Moines, $40,110. The figure went up only a dollar or two ft a time after Wheelock- Cummins dropped out and left Be and White-Phillips as the only re maining contenders. After the completion of the sale 'routine business was taken up by the school board. Select Local Brick.
