I)awes report, leaving it to the h&use Figures on the Tax Problem The following editorial has been taken fr.om this week�s issue of THE FARMER, of St. Paul: If Taxpayers can afford to pay high prices, and the money is wisely spent, the benefits derived from the expenditures may fully justify high taxes. But there is a question whether all the expenditures the past few years have been entirely justified, Comparative tax figures offer some startling contrasts. Ten years ago the total taxes raised in Minnesota, exclusive of special assessments, totalled $46,232,148, compared with 8118,886,160,85 levied in 1928. In 1918 the State needed $3,231,824.07 for revenue purposes, and in 1928 the requirements had reached $7,212,793.72 In 1913 the state�s education* al requirements were $14,482,* 057, but had advanced to $44, 749,318.21 in 1923. In 1911 the requirements for roads and bridges were $7,077,* 823 but in 1928 they were $19,* 453,442 06. Needs for cities and villages soared from $13,167,807 in 1911 to $29,631,700.41 in 1923. The war, with its tremendous demands, accounts for consider* able of this increase. But the war has been over now more than five years, and today taX1 es are still going up. Labor and commodities are still high. Solemn Holy Communion Sunday Next Sunday at St. Joseph�s church during highmass which will commence at &. a. m.
