There is no opposition to the STO.OOO bond issue on this score. The one objection of the tax payer is that it •will raise taxes. And true it is. Taxes will be raised slightly to take care of the cost of the improvements. But prospects for ait increase in taxes in the city are srood anyway. It is a knovrn fact that the opinion prevails at the rity hail that a hike in the tax T'it-e is going: to b« necessary to take care of the city's already incurred obligations. The sewer bond issue \vould add only 4c on the 5100 tax valuation for the first two ye-ars and not to exceed 7c in years- Th-a schedule of payments on the 30 year -4 per cent serial bonds proposed for sewerage improvements would never exceed more than S4.&SO in any one yca.r. And 1« * us bear in mind that while we ci voting: S70.000 in bonds, the lederat government is giving u<. a,-, an outright grant $±8.000. While most that is said oa the t^jc Qtiestion is on the rate, it is of equal importance that -we con- •:»ljj*r-.ilte . failure of the peopit *.o pay their taxtrs, T*""* «n.ny .*>sp0- r»Ie have bten usable to p*y tiiem. but the probleru is one thstt is grains 1.0 have to be solved stKrat-r or later.

First Bale Of Cotton Is Sold Here For 20 Cents r county's first bale of 1934 cotton \vas ginned and brought in to Paris for sale on Monday evening. twelve days earlier than last season's first bale. S. C. Roberts of .Minier. who raised the cotton on John Woodard's farm at Minter received 20 cents a pound for the bale of 505 pounds, fifteen cents being paid by Edwin V.'ar- dell, representative of J, Kaha. and five cents premium by the Paris and Lamar County Chamber of Commerce. Actual sale of the cotton is pending issuance of a tax exemption certificate from the government, under the acreage reduction provisions. Roberts said he picked about 25 acres for the first bale which was ginned by Jack B^li of Minter. The excessive heat and drouth of the vas£ month is sriven as the reason for the early maturity of the cotton this season. Minter has for several years past had the distinction of bringing la the first bale, and for the past four years there, two men, J. A. Pace and Roy Stewrari alternated for ihe honors, and this is the fifth successive year \VardelI has bought the first bale. Xot since 1925 has I-amar county had a bale of cotton ginned in July and since that time until this year, the earliest date on a. first bale -*vas August 4. in 1930.
