There la considerable variation In the
assessment of lots and Improvements

seem that the valuation of this property

valued at $12,740,876, an average of $14.10

value appearsto be considerably different
In each county, horses Jn Burt county
belntf valued the highest for taxation,
$19.63, while ln Thomas county they are
valued at but $7.44 each. In somo of the
counties where the raising of high-bred
horses is Indulged In the average does
not appear to be very much higher than
In counties where there is not much at
tention paid to the business.
There are 105,381 mules ln the state,
which are assessed at $1,899,476, an aver
age valuation for taxation purposes of
$17.42 per animal. The highest assessment
Is in Burt county, where the long-eared
animals are averaged at $24.23 each, while
the lowest average Is ln Hooker county,
where the valuation Is given at 8.
There are 2,811,480 cattle In the state,
valued for taxation at $14,184,308, or $6.14

The assessment of automobiles Is In

valuation of but $366. The highest priced
automobiles are to be found In Knox

Holt county, where the average assess

ro automobiles for assessment. The total

A PURE WHITE MINERAL OIL
THE final test of a remedy is
does it do away with the trouble
for which it is taken?
By that test, the various laxatives and
cathartics stand condemned. They do
not remove the condition they are
supposed to cure. In fact, the longer
they are used, the more they are needed.
Laxatives and cathartics are dangerously
By the same test, the mineral oil treat
ment, used in conjunction with a re
turn to rational habits of eating and
exercise, reveals itself as the one logical
remedy for constipation.
Nuiol is odorless and tasteless, abso
lutely neutral, and is not digested or
absorbed into the system. It acts
merely as'a mechanical lubricant.
Nujol is not a drug. Its use will not
give quick, temporary relief. But
Nujol is a genuine remedy in that it
relieves constipation in the most natural
way by lubricating the lining of the
intestines, softening the intestinal con
tents, and thus promoting healthy and
normal bowel activity.
Write for "The Rational Treatment of
Constipation," an informative treatise
on constipation. If you cannot get
Nuiol from your druggist, we will
send you a pint bottle prepaid to any
point in the United States on receipt of
