At a recent meeting the town fathers changed the bulldog tax from $25 to $3. However, a fine of $25 will be imposed on the owner of a bulldog if he lets the dog run loose in town. Sanitary Officer F. A. Wishart says that the owners of every dog in town which the tax has not been paid by next Monday morning will be indicted. Pay your dog tax now. – The Robesonian
