The average cost of collecting all taxes, according lo a computatisn of the Internal revenue bureau, is 1.39 p°r cent. One of the major arguments that may be directed against certain nuisance Uixes is that Ihe income from them is loo small to warrant the bother of collecting them Rives Man Killed on , Highway Near Kennett KENNETT; Mo. — Reltgll T.
