This year it is estimated that the tax
will be about $60,000. The tax is de
linquent September 1 and corporations
that have not paid the tax and a $10
penalty by November 30 are subject
to cancellation of charter. Up to date
$57,905.SO has been collected for the
tax of 1910. There are 8.000 delin
quent corporations. Not more than
half of these are expected to pay the
tax. because many corporations have
been consolidatled and swallowed up
by parent corporations for the express
purpose of evading the tax.

the officers of such institutions being
excepted from the use of such grade,
but now It has been informed that at
least 4 cents a pound more will be
asked for this coffee by jobbers.
Plan for 1911 Fair.
Secretary Mellor of the state board
of agriculture has already heard from
most of the firms that made machin
ery exhibits at the 1910 state fair ask-in-
to save the same space reserved
for them next year.
f To be deluged with requests of this
kind at so early a time -is an unexpect
ed experience for the board. Individu
al Arms have sometimes put in a bid
for their old space immediately after
the fair, but the majority usually do
not show such haste.
Officers for the coming year for the
state association of photographers
are: President, R. C. Nelson, Hastings;
firist vice-president. W. S. Soper. Ne
