An attempt to maiiipulale the tickets to the iiu'i>riiig of the Baptist Young People's ruicin. at Milwaukee, lia.^ been discovered, and it is feared lliat ir will to a very foiii?!dorable extent demoralize tlie,marker. \Vlicii tlie arrajigcimvits were first made for tire event, it was- agreed l!i-at rhe return portions of all tlie tickets sold fit reduced rates must be certified by the joint agent at Mil- wauki.1 1 . Now It is -reported that agents of cei'tai-ii .roads have beeji advising pur- clia,?ers that they can ha.ve the return portions of the ticket* certified at Chicago without going near tlie joint agent .it Milwaukee. If this is done It wUI make tlie tickets available for geuJKil-. business, and make them easy for the brokers to manipulate. The chairman' of the Western Passenger association- :ias issued- a circular to all of tlie roads calling their attention to tlie agreement, and asking them to see that all lie agents have the proper instructions regarding .the certifica'tion of the return tiO'ti oC the tickets. TO LOWER TAXES. At Wednesday's meeting of the State Tax Board tlie Pullman Palace Car company was represented by Attorney McPliorson. of'Chicago.

Having iiifido our report of the assessment, as .sbitcd. we returned, Cecltu'jt that our duties hutl been fa.itM'-ully performed. But to 0111- surprise, ore many days lifltl passed,'we-Trere milled to appear before the Board of Ke-vTlew. We, of course felt it to be our duty to .appear before the Board, but were somewhat embarrassed, tMukmp of our tattered garb, of wMcli.or necessity, ou account of failures in crops, and high :axes, ivehavo not been awe in the last few yeans to get a. new supply, to ap- pear'before such uu .Illustrious and uigust presence. However, with sturdy step and look, we marched up before tlie Board. We. noticed, just across the table, an assessor from some other township, who it , had tailed to get forty or fifty »Hs, the same,'by some causo,^ having been .emitted. Perhaps be was from Washington township. ' The Board then turned to us, and uiiM: "Your assessment in Adams town;Wp, compared with that of last year, ;,$107,000); is too low; • for this year it -Is only about $54,000, which you see- is-too low, and we cannot accept.it. will have to be a reassessment of the Although we were enjoying reasonably good heMth up to thnt moment we suddenly bocjime quite, sick after hearing this declai-aitlou. After 'trying. In vain' to ,swallow, something,-., .and,to. gather ourselves together, we wished to know how elite could be done, a? the :ownslhip 'had beeji assessed, 'and wo jnew nothing 'that had been_oinltted, or ot! anything wo could conscientiously jhsvnge In number or In value;-.They failed to give'us a satisfactory answer asl-to the "how" but declared that the assessment must be' raised to about $80,000. We-noibiced at once that .this meant-moro than 40 pei 1 cent, to be added to the orlglnail assessment of each taxpayer .la <tihe township. We surmised as to where It wourd. drift, and pleaded long and'loudly tlmt they, add the per cent.'themselves, but they de-, dared the difference was so great that -Hie law would not allow thftiri to do so. This browgbit' us to the 1 conclusion 1 that • we were "in it." The "how" 'to raise the assftssnienit to seventy-five or eighty •thousands' of d'olla.rs was a mystery,'' Indeed, when we coosKlered that Uie citizens of Adams towns-top are. gentlemen who regard their oa,tih above everything, and tlmt they had each made a sworn statement of the amount and value cxf their personal property. Our minds revert to the time of King George, who frequency sJgned acts allowing line colonies -to be assessed and taxed without representation,. but we have never nottced, in the history ot any nation, where an attempt • was made to assess a tax upon property that did mat exist, as done 1'n' Ilia, case of Adams township. We, therefore, could only copy -the original swo.rn statement, .and add the per cenit,' to'the-amounts,; respectively, and .ask. the' taipayera to sign -the same. We toi'd, inus'friendly a •.way,ias'"we.knew, a large .number'of :-them,.,wiiat;-was being ,done by .tJi.e Boar'd 'oJP^'KevieW, and upon- asking ,%eni:to'sisu,''th,ey'wuifl-. say. .', r E.ut"',lt' tiiere :: if-yo^i ivton, we have'; aligned one"; .and'ttfetithe.Board of .Review would .nx-'Jit• to.Viiidt 1 ' themselves,:. .anyway.

Bul-ievins that there exis'led soniu- wlieri; n cause for sucli :; falliu£ off in the assessments, we assumed the du-t ha of tlio Board of Heview for a few liour.5 and found that $30,000 in personal property assessed iu lSOr>, bad been chansrcd.to real, or had been removed from the township., ^'e also. found that Adams to\vusl)lp had boon extravagantly assessed in- these -year.*, comparatively speaking. In 1S01. tlv; assessment of Adams township.' was $91;000; in 1S05 it was $107.000: It wi:.l be noticed that during these years, in the face of failures, and the depreciation in the value of both real and personal property, that Adams township's assessment lias been 'increasing to the amount of $4,000.every year ou personal alone. We say that any person who has kept.pace with the times since 1.891. will agree with us that personal property has fallen In value a bout.33 1-3 per cent. Well mny the citizens of Adams township make what the Pharos was pleased to call a "bad break", to show the citizens of Cuss.county that wo, the -tax payeis of Adams.township, wish to do, ns we have always done In the past, the fair thing by our brother taxpayers lu the county'. We will make a comparison with our rich neigMior, Bet.hle- tom township. We find by. this comparison iu that township there are men of wealth who deal'extensively '11 fine stock. The total amount of wheat in Adams for the year wa« 2,180 bushels. B'.'F. Yaiitis, of Bethlehem, alone gave to Assessor Leffel 1.500 bushels. Th-e personal property of B. F. Vantis and J. Cox amounts to_ $5,000. This is more than one-fourth- tlie value of all personal property-in Adams, .north of Henpeck road. The assessment of Beth lehein township for 1891 was .$330,770, and In 1805 was $117,000. It will be seen at once tuat-tills township from '91 to '93 has been gradually decreasing In Its assessment,- a" failing. off of about $3,500 a 'year on' persan'nl property alone. • • .'. • No doubt o£her townsliips have a still greater fulling oft than this, and it Is right they should, i-f they wish to keep pace with the depreciation Ju the vaUie of. property. We can truthfully say, that while It mny be necessary for each county to have what is known as a Board of Review, it has been a nuisance since 1891, so far.as Adams township.is concerned. The Board of Review, bow- ever, after the facts abovn were made .known,- and plain-to It, saw at once the mistake Jt .Irnd. made, and a majority o>f the. Board raembors pladly-reconaid- ered -their action, and accepted our original assessment. On motion of F. Obenchain, nboiit thirty of the citizens of Adnaris township, who were present, tendered a vote of thanks to tlie Board 'for'its prompt and satisfactory action lu tbe case. : . .; We feel sure' that-this Board will profit by the mistake it made and we can say that the present County Assessor .Ouster, Treasurer B. ;P. Keesling. liud Auditor Gy Powell', 'ha've'.shown themselves'-to us as strictly gentlemen iii. every phase of the word, aud we believe they deserve the confidence of the people, of toe county.-,• As\fcr the re-.' .maining two'.gentleman of the Board, we are not'acquainted'with'tli'eru,-but It'suffices to sax-that the conclusion- reached by our ,.man from Washington township, who .made .WmseU so prom- ineat at laitous tim,e§, was that Ufa bud a beautiful momstnche We trust he Cui^Tlis Oui ftr Fmnie Reference Sla-tchw of all kinds |.rcp.-ir«d Tor .l«.-orative and commercial purposes Mcclianieil au.l prosnwsive arduiu^s of Electric, Pneumatic and Agri- ciilrural cluvii-es in-epared fur lUe l J :Uei,t oUit*.

JONES AND WOLFORD. THE LATEST '< SCIENTIFIC .KNOWLEDGE ON FOOD - AND DIGESTION. The real cause of most of our diseases is simply an Inability • to digest food. This induces thinness, weakness, loss of flesh and fat, loss of vitality, wasting awiy. ' If gettinR thin is what ails" }X)U, there is only-one tMug to do—get fat. The only way to do it Is to take something which wjll'help your stomach, and stimulate it to do its work. If you are tired out you do not like to digest; it cannot do its work. To eat, or even to eat with'relish docs not necessarily mean that one is being nourished. Strength, vitality and flesh aro the true indications. "GetUiug thin Is a sign.-t;hat you need the Shaken. Digestive Cordial. You would not be getting thto if you could; digest your food. Tlie Shaker Digestive Cordial not only contains artificially digested -food, but It will digest other foods in "the stomach. ".:. A single 10: cent bottle will show whether or not It Is going to meet the conditions of .your case, and if so, its continued use may, be'depended on to effect a cure. All druggists keep it in stock.
