The Logan observer reports that in Harrison, third county on the Missouri river south of Sioux City, a rural county, no fewer than 393 applications for old age pensions had been filed up to September 5. The county treasurer had collected only $5901 in old age pension taxes. In Emmet county, only 12 townships, more than 200 applications have been filed. Now and then an enthusiastic put it over. Incidentally the case of the American Railway Express Co. is ••of peculiar interest because its assessment — only $1300 — is somewhere near that of the average town home. The company realizes •a savings of only $4.29.

How comforting to know that all 'farms and other real property own- :efl by corporations — the hundreds «of big buildings and the enor- -mously valuable sites in all our •cities, for example — will be taxed 'less because the state of Iowa has ••collected enough pennies from the common people, including the poor, •to let them off! No wonder the rich who own *hese properties are for the reelec- lion of Governor Herring. No won: ~iQer the wealthy newspapers of Mowa are either openly strong for 'athe present state administration or are discreetly silent about the fact ; :that while the ordinary taxpayer -pays back in sales taxes many ?4imes more than he gets off in his property taxes the situation is reversed in the case of the rich. „ It is hard to reach the mass of •4he people and make them absorb ^governmental facts and figures.

KKASOXS WHY CHKIHT WILL NOT MOVK As always towards the end of de- gressions, banks are loaded with •money. A Chicago bank recently •*sked all its small depositors to Withdraw their accounts. An East- *rn bank is giving away fountain pens to achieve the same end. The fcanks cannot use the money, and it 'costs them something to handle it. The Traer Star-Clipper remarks 41iat the worst stumbling block on road to recovery is credit. "In of the government's many ef- Opinions oi Editors T HIS WRITER AND W. A. gars are the same age will arrive at another mile! September 2. If you take the figure 59, add 475, deduct 257, multiply by 2, and deduct 436, you will arrive at a figure twice their age, which is three years less than that of the courthouse, and they feel a lot older — sometimes." — Editor Dowel in Algona Advance. The editor of the Herald crossed his milestone September 6. strange to say, the above formula will result in a figure twice age by substituting 61 for 59. Which reminds us of the following formula, which shows infallibly the nature of a person (Bro. Dewel might work it out in his case). Take the year of your birth, add 4, then add your age in 1934, subtract 29, multiply e by 1,000 and subtract 694,423. If you apply the result to the letters of the alphabet you will what you are known to be—that is, the figure 1 stands for A, 2 for B, etc.—Pa Olson in Story City Herald. Well, that settles it. ' that such a fine friendship over a period of years at 80 miles distance between two men who never saw each other must be shattered in a libel suit! OLD GEORGE GALLARNO, Plain Talk, gets a fetching quip out of the Des Moines Register's gan, "The Newspaper Iowa pends Upon." As George puts it, it is "The Newspaper Which Depends on Iowa." Bouquet for Senator Murphy. Knoxville Journal—The Journal (Rep.) can't escape the conclusion that the policy of keeping surplus corn on farms and out of the hands of speculators is a great advantage to farmers and the people of the corn belt. To Senator Murphy belongs the credit in large measure for this practical help to farmers. The Country Needs Stability. Traer Star-Clipper—Just what is needed? It goes without saying that what we require is.a restoration of confidence. This can not be brought about by further experimentation. It must come through the adoption of sound money policies and a program of economy, retrenchment wherever possible, and a move toward balancing of the national and state budgets. Add Questions of the Day. Swea City Herald — Mr. Upton Sinclair, democratic candidate for governor of California, promises the voters of his state that the California sales tax law will be repealed if he is elected. Our distinguished democratic governor, Clyde Herring, busily defends the Iowa sales tax from the platform and over the radio. The sales tax laws of both states are about the same. So what? Farmers Contract Again! Humboldt Independent — Friday morning's papers carried dispatches from Washington stating that the AAA is to poll the farmers who signed corn-hog contracts to see if they want the plan to carry through 1935. If what one hears on the street in conversation with farmers from various portions of the county can be taken as the sentiment there will be no corn-hog contracts in Humboldt county next year. Pension law Bad Joke. Britt News-Tribune — There are 8741 people in Hancock subject to the old age pension tax. Up to Friday fewer than 6000 had paid. Assuming that 7000 will pay, the total amount thus raised will be $14,000 at the $2 rate after this year. Already there are more than 170 applications. Assuming 170 approved, how much can be allowed to ex- baust available funds? If each of :he 170 were allowed $10 monthly, it would take $1700 a. month, or WE MUST TAKE this to correct Mr. E. L. C. White, of the Spencer News-Herald, on an error in an editorial in last week's News- Herald. He used the phrase, "He will do his durndnest." '\ that last word is wrong, and should have been spelled "durndest." it is slang, it is not quoted in our dictionary. Perhaps we must leave it to Editor Dewel, of Algoua, rule who is right.—Roy A. Jarnagin in Peterson Patriot. Jarney is of course quite right. The Colyum, however, "d—dest." This sends delightfully shocking tremors down the spines of mid-Victorian readers, who imagine you are using a naughty word, when of course all you mean is "derndest." THERE WERE MAUDLIN sympathizers with criminals 50 ; ago, just as there are now, some of them wrote jingles still live. Oldsters who were young then will recall this one, again the other day after a long retirement— Jesse had a wife, She's a mourner all her life, And the children, they were brave; But the dirty little coward Who shot Joe Howard, He laid Jesse James in his grave. Oh, Arthur, Please Remember Your Blood Pressure! [Brisbane's Column.] If there is among the African bushmen a 6-months-old infant who knows less about money than the gentlemen who manage the finances of this country, that infant should be exhibited here as the legitimate successor of Barnum's "what-is-it." A HERO IS NO HERO to his valet, and a president of the United States is just a husband to his wife; which introduces an amusing story told by Eugene Howe in the Amarillo Globe; a group of democrats who feared that Mrs. Roosevelt was gadding about too much for the good of the party mustered courage to complain to the president. Mr. Roosevelt heard them with a twinkle in the eye, and when tiwy had -finished said: "Maybe so; maybe BO—but who is going to tell her?" And that broke up the meet- '.ng.

C. Hanna, Lone Rock farmer who died of heart disease last week Tuesday while he and a farm hand were repairing a machine in a corn field, were held at the Burt Presbyterian church Friday afternoon in charge of the Revs, S. M. Gladstone, of the Lone Rock church, S. H. Aten, Burt pastor, and Allen H. Wood, Good Hope pastor. Burial was made in the Burt cemetery. Mr. Hanna came of pioneer stock, his parents having been Thomas and Elizabeth Hanna, who came here from Illinois in a covered wagon in 1871. George had been born there on July 28, 1870. They settled on a farm on the Union-Burt line, and for a time lived in a sod house. George later bought this farm, and his son A. H. now lives on it. The George Hanna home farm adjoins. George attended the Burt township rural school No. 4. His children later attended the same school, his two daughters taught the school at different times, and the grandchildren attend it now. In 1895, at Boone, George was married to Tillie M. Bickelhaupt, of Story City, who survives. There are four children: Adelbert H. and Everett E., Lone Rock; Myrtle M., attending the State Teachers college; and Pearl E., New York City. There are four grandchildren. Mr. Hanna also left a sister and two brothers: Mrs. Sadie Schenck, Minneapolis; Alvin A., Wolf Point, Mont.; John T., Los Angeles. Mr. Hanna- had farmed all his life. He had for many- years been a director of the Lone Rock elevator, and was 'president at death. He was always active in the upbuild- ing of his community, in which he ranked as a leader. The children were all at the funeral, which drew a capacity attendance. Pall bearers were J. M. Blanchard, Otto Laabs, Frank Dacken, Lemuel Marlow, W. J. Bourne, all of Lone Rock, and Otto Schultz, Fort Dodge. Mrs. Shenck and her daughter Mabel came; also the brother Alvin. Others were: Mr. and Mrs. B. T. Hanna and Mr. and Mrs. Fred Yopp, Shindler, S.
