What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

NOVEMBER 6,1913 The Street Light Question. • What is the matter •with the street lights of Moore. It has been ooticeable for some time past that the two are lights on Fergus avenue have been discontine nedWthtOWit - coue,c1,1—but why. For the past aix weeki .. even the. arc between the tracks at the rail - sway station, which is supposed to maintained by the Milwaukee, has been out of commission. Now, ..in our opinion, this state of affairs . thould not exist. So far as the Anaintainance of a few lights on the tuain thoroughfare is concerned we feel certain that every busineis • man would gladly appropriate a gulf- , ficient sum each month to pay the !‘cost of lighting could they be cow- ivince,d of the benefits to be derirvd +from them. Street lights should be i,rept up in Moore, not only for the :convenience of the town people, but cor the benefit of visitors, as welt ea tourists and horneseekers passing through the city. The evening trains tarry a number of such people who, they saw Moore well lighted would-be convinced of Its progressive *leer, and nalglti pherrobr be indApee.d ea return hereto mate their home tar 1,nfloence their friends to locate, en what they would consider, a live town. Something should be done at once to remedy this site of affairs. Let us keep Moore on the map. 4 Consolidated school districts are meeting withlccees in many states resulting in better work and, condi- tions, and a saving of money. NSuch a movement should be carried out by consolidating, several districts im- mediately adjObilng Moore. With consolMation aveuld come additional educational features such as manual training, domestic science, commer- cial wort and agricultural study. It would mean expansion in room and Later'would follow com- munity_use of the buildings by far- mers' clubs, town organizations, school youths' clubs and other public gathering When not in use by the school.

The recently enacted \Irjeorne Tax\ law is creating consternation ,in \Wall Street\ and the nation's legal men are endeavoring without much success to agree on its interpretation. While this law may not effect all of The Empire's readers, we give here a few facts and dates. that May interest the public in gffneral: Everybody with a net income of more than $8,000 ii\ year, if single, and $4,000 alear U. married, is .sub- ject to the tax. -- • 7 .. -The taxpayer must tile a return with internal revenue collector by March 1, 1914, showing .all Sources of his income and the deduction to which he is entitled., All incomes are to be computed by the calender year, but taxes for the first will be levied Only from March 1, 1918, to Dec. 81, next.. Notification of assessritents will be sent out by the giivernment before June 1 next. , , , • , eee' Taxes must be paid by June 80. Failure to files return means a tine of from $2 to a $1,000. A fraudulent return makesthe tax- payer liable to a fine of $2,000 or im- prisonment for a year, or both. The man whose income tax . is with- held •by his employer must file anaffi- davit•by Feb. 1 with the employer or the internal revenue collector in claim- ing deductioni, ,• .., . Al! holders of corporate bonds must file by the geminate a statement in writing claiming exemptions irom the tax if it is not to bededajctedfrom t-, , interest payments. • That Flour Mill oe 1 Since the publication of an article in the Empire taste week concerning a custom flour mill for Moore, the conemerciakplub lias received several inquiries regarding the matter from outsiders who ,were desirous of estab- lishing the mill, ,as well aR others who were indirectly interested. A r 1 considerable amount of capital is re- quired to 'properly finance even a small mill, but we believe that suffi- cient farmers and business men can be found in this community to carry out the project. The Empire believes that a smell mill could be conducted on a paying basis and anyone who decides to ahead with It will have the united support of the people of' the city and the surrounding country.
