Schedule 12. Statement of errors in treasurer's collections.
We have endeavored to prepare the several schedules of thi3 report in
as simple form as possible, so that the reader may be able to gain all desir desired
ed desired information relative to municipal transactions of the past three years,
from a careful review of the report.
In the Balance Sheet, Schedule 1, we have included all uncollected real
and personal property taxes, except such as your body had adjudged worth worthless
less worthless from time to time, and ordered credited to the tax collector.
T amount of unpaid taxes shown for 1914 and prior years is
explained by the action taken February 1, 1916, folio 219 minutes of the
council, whereby the clerk was instructed to charge off all old tax certifi certificates
cates certificates not included in the collector's sale of November 1, 1915. It will be
noted that certificates have not been issued for a large number of small tax
items in the Silver Springs addition, and the tax collector has been given
credit for these items as worthless by your body, except $74.38 1914 taxes.
We have, however, included this credit in our reconcilement with the tax
collector. In our-opinion, it is a very bad practice to exempt a portion of the
tax in this addition and permit others in the same section to pay. Either
all should be exempt or all collected.
Assessment liens collectable are shown at $9,235.58. We have not in included
cluded included any unpaid interest on these accounts, and call your attention to the
fact a good portion of these are considerably in arrears.
Inventories were not taken December 31st and as a result the inven inventories
tories inventories furnished at our request March 1st and shown in our balance sheet,
may not be correct in every respect. Promptly at the close of each year, the
heads of departments should make a careful inventory of all supplies and
equipment.
Fixed investments detailed under schedule 10 are based upon your pre previous
vious previous auditor's report and additions and deductions during the three years
under review. The general ledger of the city is incomplete, in this regard,
and we would suggest that an appraisal of these properties be made and a
strict accounting be kept of all "Capital Expenditures" in the future.
The bonded debt of the city is shown under schedule 8. The exact lia liability
bility liability account of unpaid interest coupons can not be determined, as all cou coupons
pons coupons have been burned, rather than canceled and pasted in a bond register.
We have show as an interest liability the total bond interest accrued as at
December 31, 1917, on all issues, considering that all past due coupons have
been retired. The latter assumption is very probably in error.
Accounts payable have been shown only for unpaid extraordinary obli obligations.
gations. obligations. Correct accounting would include also, the unpaid operating ac accounts
counts accounts of December paid in January, but inasmuch as many features of
your city's accounting system do not afford a means whereby an exact bal balance
ance balance sheet might be prepared, we have not shown the unpaid current ac accounts.
counts. accounts. Deposits of electric light consumers have been determined by adding to
the deposits shown by your last audit, the total deposits received during our

period and deducting therefrom the amount of deposits refunded. A record
should be prepared showing the names of all consumers who have deposits
with the city, and this record should be kept up so as to exhibit the exact
amount of such deposits and prevent the possibility of duplicate refunds.
The general surplus of the city is shown to be $209,888.99 as compared
with $187,379.97 December 31, 1914.
We were advised that no contingent liabilities or litigation pending,
exist, which might materially affect the present financial condition of your
city. -;
Disbursements of each of the several so-called funds of the city have
been carefully examined in detail and found to be for proper purposes and
bear proper authority for payment. The several funds of the city are shown
separately only on the treasurer's record, which book is kept by the city

department of the Commercial Bank, are deposited in one account to .the

credit of the city treasurer.
We are informed that a bond commission has been created since De December
cember December 31st which shall have charge of the sinking fund of the city. It is
our opinion that you should determine the exact amount necessary to retire
a certain percentage of your bonds at maturity, and proper provision be
made for the accumulation of this amount. Sinking funds should be invested
in securities, preferably bonds of other cities, towns or states of an earlier
maturity than your own and yielding the same or higher rate of interest.
The treasurer's balances as shown on the clerk's record are incorrect,
and did not agree with your previous audit report. The treasurer's balances
as detailed by funds under schedule 6 is the correct balance in each fund as
of December 31st, determined by our detailed audit of all receipts and dis disbursements.

A, DOLLAR WASTED HELPS THE ENEMY
That is not a loyal thing to do, of course, and few of us realize
that we are helping the enemy when we waste money. Pretty hard
to define what waste is. One man's waste may be another man's
economy. In a general way, waste in war time may be defined as the
buying of anything net essential to health and efficiency. Every
dollar one spends for unnecessary things commands goods and ser services,
vices, services, that is, labor and materials, needed by the United States Gov Government
ernment Government for war purposes. And, ?f you invest the money you save
in War Savings Stamps, you are again helping by loaning your mon money
ey money to your Government. ;

MARION COUNTY FARMERS
Do you need money to pay off a mortgage;
to purchase live live stock; to fence or stump
land; to erect buildings or in other ways to
improve your farm? If the real estate secur security
ity security and the moral hazard are satisfactory,
the Federal Land Bank of Columbia will
make you a loan at 5Y2 interest and for a
35 year term, with privilege of repayment

quartermasters for aviation ground
work. Intelligent young men with without

accepted as lansmen for any one of
the above ratings. Now is your
chance, boys, to get in and learn a
trade that will be of use to you when
you get home again. I know there
are plenty of boys who want to do

their bit and now is the time to do it,
and it is also time for fathers and

mothers to tell their boys to go in instead

time for all of these kind of fathers

We're not here long, so let'a make

our stay agreeable. Let us live well,
eat well, digest well, work well, sleep
well, and look well, what a glorious
condition to attain, and yet, how very
easy it is if one will only adopt the
morning inside bath.
Folks who are accustomed to feel
dull and heavy when they arise, split splitting
ting splitting headache, stuffy from a cold, foul
tongue, nasty breath, acid stomach,
can, instead, feel as fresh as a daisy
by opening the sluices of the system
each morning and flushing out the

whole of the internal poisonous stag stagnant
nant stagnant matter.
Everyone, whether ailing, sick or
well, should, each morning, before
! breakfast, drink a glass of real hot
water with a teaspoonful of limestone
I phosphate In it to wash from the
stomach, liver and bowels the previous
I dayF indigestible waste, sour bile
l and poisonous toxins; thus cleansing,

hot water and limestone phosphate on

an empty stomach is wonderfully in-

vlgorating. It cleans out an the sour
fermentations, gases, ; waste and
acidity and gives one a splendid
appetite for breakfast. While you are
enjoying your breakfast the water
and phosphate is quietly extracting
a large volume of water from the
blood and getting ready for a
thorough flushing of all the inside
organs.
The millions of people who. are
bothered with constipation, bilious
spells, stomach trouble; others who
have sallow skins, blood disorders and
sickly complexions are urged to get a
quarter pound of limestone phosphate
from the drug store. This win cost
very little, but Is sufficient to make
anyone a pronounced crank on the
subject of inside-bathing before break breakfast
