ANE XPLANATION Some of our readers did not understand the meaning of the figures that were printed qbout the school election last week. It was printed that there were 190 votes cast for the 15 mill levy, 74 f(r the 12 mill levy and 1 vote for a 7 mill leavy. We added the regular state levy of 5 mills to the number ot excess mills voted. There were 190 votes cast for a 10 mill excess levy, 74 for a 7 mill A STORY WITH A MORAL Saturday some of the farmers here thought that they were being 'worked' on their cream prices. It had been advertised that cream would be bought fro' one cent over market price, and Fri- day the price dropped two cents. Several thought that this was a dodge to prevent paying the extra cent. Some took their cream to Stillwater and found that they could get only 16 cents there. Many brought it back to Perkins and sold it here for 17 cents. They drove 22 miles just for the airing. Moral to this story-- well, it is easy to guess. ill H i $20.00 In Prizes To Be excess levy and one vote for a 2 mill excess levy. i 8PRINGHILL LITERARY the commercial club is spon- -- , I raring a series of programs pre- A large crowd attended the re- ..... .........
