debt service. The smallest from which
the heaviest demands w ill be made,
according to Mr. Cathev. is the poor
fund, with abnut $2,000 balance, and
two months to run in this year.
The original $1,100 set out in the
budget for roads has not been touch
ed, according to the statement. It is
the onlv fund from which no expen
ditures have been made.
This $1,100 is an accumulation of
funds received in taxes which have
been collected for years prior to 1932.
at which time the state took over all
roads. Mr. Cathev stated that the
money in this fund would li-kelv be
used to apply on debt service. As col

Raintf In County
According to (J. C. Plott, county
game and fire warden, forest fires
this spring have been the worst, in this
county than in many years.
Several big fires have raged through
good stands of timber, and scores f
men have been put on the job of
lighting the blazes.
He has not made an estimate, or
assembled his data together for the
number of acres burned, he said, but
it will run into a high figure.
