Something New in Taxing Line. A scene at Podgoritza, Montenegro, showing the housing conditions. Note that there is not a chimney in sight. As there was a tax on chimney in the country under the old regime, the people preferred to let the smoke from their fires find an outlet through the windows.

To combat this the Red Cross has inaugurated an educational campaign on sanitary living conditions
