A RAPID FEMALE COLLECTOR
Mrs. Anna Baxter, County Clerk of Jasper County, Mo., is complimented by the county paper with having extended the courthouse tax upon the books, ready for the collector, in the shortest time on record—“less than fourteen hours after the court ordered the levy.” “It was,” says the editor, “an all-night job, and the quickest extension of a tax levy ever made in Jasper or any other county in Missouri. All honor to the County Clerk and her faithful deputies and the patriotic men who helped out with the work. The bobbin is wound up.”—New Orleans Times-Democrat.
