The act provides that taxes may be paid on real estate till June 1st by filing with the town treasurer an affidavit of inability to pay the tax now. The board must adopt the act to make it effective. We understand the town board will extend the time until March 1st for payment without the two per cent penalty.

Will Theiler had a car accident near Neillsville the last of the week, that might have had some fatalities, and anyhow it probably added some gray hairs to all in the car. Mr. Theiler, his wife, her mother Mrs. Trachsel, and Mr. and Mrs. Aebersold from Colorado, turned north from Highway 10, west of the viaduct at Neillsville, to visit some people who recently moved from Colorado.
