This story is further of interest
when the figures are studied yeai' by
year, as the amon.t of taxes levied
each succeeding year beginning with '
1930 has shown a downward tenden- 1
cy, and at the .same time the public i
work has made of Southern Pines a :
more highly attractive village each |
year. The excellent basis on which all;
the public affairs are planned and |
the service given the people is a mat- ’
ter for profound satisfaction. It is
doubtful if any other town of even
much greater size in this state can
show more to justify the public out- j
lay of money than Southern Pines. |
