VOTE BONDS OR A
BIG TAX RATE TO BE
LEVIED THIS FALL
On August 20th, the people of Bar
row county will decide on the issue of
$50,000 worth of bonds witli which to
finish the court house and to pay oth
debts of the county that has accumu
lated. It will be necessary to issue
bonds, or levy a tax sufficiently large
this fall to raise the $50,000. Under the
present condition of financial affairs
it sedtns to us that it would be far bet
ter to v ote bonds and pay them la
ter than to have a heavy and oppres
sive tax levied on the county this fall.
Everyone that favors bonds under
the present circumstances should not
fail to go out and vote. To fail to
vote for bonds is a vote against them
as the required number of votes must
la* secured for them. Look up the day,
mark it on your calendar, and go out
! and vote.

a great sermon delivered by the erudite
preacher and they were not disappoint
ed. Dr. Key preached from the text
Collossion 4:12, “Epephras.” In the
beginning of the sermon we decided
that Epephras was a dry text, but be
fore Dr. Key had gone very far into
his subject we decided that it was a
very interesting subject. Epephras
was a doer, a servant and was
ashamed to He known as one of the
little churches at Collossia. I)r. Key
handled his subject well; he is a clear
.forceful speaker and the First Baptist
congregations were delight to have liim
