News: Chili (12 Jan 1917)
----Source: Granton News (Granton, Clark County, Wis.) 01/12/1917
The holidays have gone by and business as well as everyday life has assumed its general and common appearance. The only thing that has not been settled yet by a number is the question of paying taxes.
Taxes never seem to go down; they always seem to have the habit of going up, up, up. There is a school district in our town, where the taxes just doubled. One farmer said tow or three more accidents like that, and I will sell my farm for the tax receipt. But good government or any government at all cannot be had without paying for it. What will we know about it in a hundred years from now, so pay up and look pleasant.
Visiting was the order during the holidays. Many pleasant hours have been passed away by relatives and friends.
Many wise farmers are buying their needs of implements for the coming season now. The prices are still low considering the raise to come in the near future.
Don’t forget to bring your tickets to the Elevator before the 20th of this month for your dividends.
Sand bees have commenced. The building activity will be a fair one in spite of high prices of material.
Chas. Bulgrin, who was hurt last summer in an auto accident, was in Chili Wednesday. He has to go on crutches yet.
