1918 TAGS ONLY PERMITTED UPON AUTOS AND TRUCKS

Auto owners who have forgotten to remove their last year's license tags from their cars, even though they have the 1918 tags on the cars, had better look out or Constable Chapman will get them. Two arrests were made this week for this violation of the state law.

It does not seem to be generally known that it is a misdemeanor to drive a car with last year's license tag on. The maximum penalty is a fine of $50 and 30 days in jail.

Last night Constable Chapman placed S.S. Welch, the North Central avenue grocer, under arrest for this offense. Mr. Welch, who had both the 1917 and 1918 license tags on his car, was ignorant of the existence of the law forbidding the use of the old license tag, and for that reason Police Judge Taylor let him off today with a mild lecture.

The other arrest of the week for the same offense was that of Mr. Connor of Ashland who drew a fine of $5 and costs.

DANIELS TO LEAVE AFTER BIG SALE

The announcement that T.E. Daniels was going out of business was received by the general public with much surprise and regret, for both the "Daniels for Duds" store and Mr. Daniels had come to be regarded as landmarks and permanent fixtures of the city.

Further than stating that he was selling out his entire stock of clothing and men's furnishing, and also the fixtures of the store, most of which have already been sold, Mr. Daniels said he was not yet prepared to announce his future plans.
