These applications are duly filed and the "relief" afforded will be paid out of the tax of 1892 next year. Those who applied last year will receive their appropriation this year -- in August or September. The amount paid last year was about $10 or $15. It is thought the amount the coming year will amount to more, probably $20 or $25. The total appropriated by the state is about $125,000.
