KOSSUTH CfrttNTY L AtflONA. IOWA Laws & Taxes Too many laws and too much taxes. We have federal laws, state laws, county laws, corporation laws, by-laws, brother-in-laws and out- . laws. All these laws make taxes higher and higher. We have property tax, store tax, auto tax, gas tax, water tax, light tax, cigar tax, street tax, school tax, any tax, and carpet tax. About half the people of this country are producers. They work for a living. The other half are state and government employes, high financiers, gangsters, and common bums. ' Half the people have to do the work and make enough money to support the whole crowd. This makes double taxation for them. They are paying the other fellow's taxes, as well as their own. I work sixteen hours a day trying to make ends meet, and just when I get them together and ready to tie In a hard knot some son-of-a-gun comes along and moves the ends. No use kicking, as long as I get fried mush for breakfast and four or five cups of coffee during the day I can keep right on selling shoes. We have a larger stock and a better stock this year than we ever handled before. In men's dress oxfords and shoes we are showing some wonderful values. We have stocked some very high-class oxfords this year. All the new things in the "Classic" and Freeman Beddows famous shoes and oxfords. In the ladles' pumps and ties our showing is as smart ,.and classy as any shown in this part of the state and you are getting them at a good deal less money. Our line of ladles' comfort slippers at 51.69 and $1.9S are better than ever. In fact they are the same kind that you paid us $2.25 and $2.50 for last year. You will need them when the hot days come.

Evans, editor of the Shield, added the following comment: "No one can look Into the beneficent face of Mr. Clarke and doubt his generous spirit, his fraternallsm. He did not assist the young.frater- nal society for money or position. He never was active In the management of the society. He never drew a dollar in salary from the society. He simply gave the influence of His good name, and advanced several hundred dollars, to encourage a good movement. He lived to know that his efforts in those early days of the society were responsible, at least in part, for all the good the Yeomen has since done. He has gone to his reward."
