Scavenger Law Held (wood*
The dee’sion <>f the supreme court
upholding the validity of the s >
called “scavenger law" is of more
than usual importance, particularly
to the ow ners of taxable property.
The scavenger law, as its name
imi lies, is u measure designed to
to clean up the delinquent taxes
that are being carried as a doubtful
asset on t lie books of the city and
county treasurers. Hitherto while
tin' law has provided for the collec
tion of unpaid taxes by distress and
sale, the tax titles have been subject
to attacks in the courts, wi'li the re
suit that no one has been willing to
invest in them, and the delinquent
taxes have in many cases accumu
lated until with interest and penal
ties they exceed in amount what tin*
property would bring at forced sale.
The scaveng* r law contemplates the
sale of this tax burdened property,
with its transfer to the purchaser
under valid title, subject oulv to 1 -
demotion within a certain state i
tune, and the expunging from the
tax books of the deficiency, if any,
remaining afu r such sale.
The advantage of the law, we be
lieve, will be found more in its po
tentialit) than in its actual enforce
ment. When people know their
property eftn be. sold for taxes they'
will pay up, win refts up to this time
they have allowed thci( taxes to
run on, secure m the knowledge that
no severe measures could be taken
to collect. People who pay their
takes have no direct concern in the
scavenger law. It is only fair, how
ever, that those who pay willingly
should not have to hear t he burdens
of the tax shirkers and deadbeats.
If the scavenger law will accom
plish what its friends have promised
it. will bo popular with good citizens
and odious only with those who try
to evade their public obligations.

To the Patrons ot the
Ravenna Creamery Company.
It is becoming constantly more imperative Mat some
method must be adopted, so that the dairyman who has nice,
sweet cream to sell can obtain the top price for the top qual
ity; while the man who offers sour, old-flavored cre-mi wi
have to accept a price in proportion to the quality of his prod
net. When the patron furnishes a first grade product, the
creamery man can make an extra grade butter and thus com
mand the best market prices, and make the business mutually
profitable; while low grade cream at a high grade price will
inevitably make a losing and unsatisfactory business.
To encourage the production of the best and discourage
the production of the poorest, we have determined to begin, in
the near future, the grading of all cream bought bv us or our
agents, and paying for the same in some such manner as here
out-lined: We will use a simple test, such as is adopted at all
state experiment schools and state farms to show the differ
ence between sweet and sour cream: cream showing too much
acid will bo graded No. 2, also any cream showing old or bad
flavors produced by uncleanliiiess or improper handling wH
be graded No. 2, cream testing loss than 30 per cent butter
fat will also l»e paid for at same price as No. 2, this is neces
sary as the acid develops mostly in the milk, and cream having
ovei 70 per cent of milk in it sours much quicker than cream
that has 30 to 33 per cent of butter-fat.
We will have this grading test in operation a week or
two before we begin paying by grade, so that all our patrons
will have an opportunity to become familiar with the system
and its requirements.
Trusting that we shall have your co-operation in this en
deavor to raise the standard and grade of the Nebraska dairv
Ravenna Creamery Company.
