Lost 20 Lbs. of Fat
In Just 4 Weeks;
Mrs. Mae West, of St. Louis, Mo.J
writes: "I'm only 28 yrs. old and'
weighed 170 lb*, until taking one box,
- of your Kruschen Salts just 4 weeks
ago. I now weigh 150 lbs. I also'
have more energy and furthermore I
I've never had a hungry moment." j
Fat folks should take one-half tea- j
spoonful of Krwachen Salts in a glass
of hot water in the morning before i
breakfast —It'* the SAFE, harmless
way to reduce as tens of thousands of
men and women know.
For your health's sake ask for and
get Kruschen at any drug store — the
cost for a bottle that last* 4 week* i*
but a trifle and if after the firat bottle
you are not joyfully satisfied with re
sults—money back. '

COST OF STATE
Taxpayers Saved Over $12,-
000,000 in Levies During
Past Fiscal Year
It has taken just exactly $12,228,000
less from the pocketbooks of the tax
' payers of North Carolina to run their
! government this past fiscal year than
|it did the year previous, according to
I an analysis of the financial condition
of the state released this week by
Governor O. Max Gardner.
Coupled with that reduction in the
property tax bill for the state is the
significant fact that the cost of the
; operation of the departments and in
, stitutions of North Carolina has been
reduced from $8,658,000 in 192 V to $6,-
176,000 for the current year, or a net
reduction of 29 per cent in the cost
of operating |he government, it was
s shown in the governor's statement.
Getting down to a specific analysis
of the governmental costs, it was
shown that by reason of the action
taken in the last General Assembly
| the total tax bill in Mecklenburg
County, for instance, was reduced the
grand sunt of $750,000, and Gaston
county was able to slash off $449,000
from its total property tax bill.
Ihe total reduction throughout all
i North Carolina of 20.4 per cent of
the property tax constitute sthe larg
est tax reduction ever achieved in the
history of the state? it was pointed
Figures just completed by the Tax
Commission show a total property tax
levy of $59,911,000 in 1930 and a drop
to $47,684,000 in 1931—the first year
to have the benefit of the 1931 school
and road legislation, and of the legis
lative and administrative ecoitomies
put into effect in local government.
The analysis shows the remarkable
reduction in county levies of $10,055,-
000, in district levies of $1,704,000, and
in municipal levies of $469,000. This
means, the surwey points out, that tlie
businesses and industries of North
j I arolina were called upon to pay only
four-fifths as much property taxes in
J 1931 as they were called upon to pay
In other words, these governmental
left just exactly $12,250,006
more money iu the pockets of the tax
payers of North Carolina that might
easily have been taken under the nor
mal and regular appropriations for the
support of the government.
This is generally regarded iu ad
ministration circles as the biggest re
duction ever brought about in a single
year by any state in the union.
More important than any of these
reductions, in the minds of some, is!
the fact that the administration was'
able to shave off the impressive sum!
of $2,7*0,000 front the salaries of state
officials in the ,pasl' year. That hand
some sawing in salaries alone is regard
ed as a very Haltering contrast to the
increase in salaries shown iu the fed
eral government. '
