Maintaining An Old Custom.
In a few of the ecunties the
treasurers still go over the county
for the purpqse of collecting
taxes, thus making it more con
venient for the people to attend
to this duty that can not be
dodged. In these same counties
the editor of the county paper
usually accompanies the treas
urer, so that subscribers may not
be put to any inconvenience in
paying their subscriptions. This
custom of the treasurer making
an annual tour of the county has
I been very wisely discontinued in
other counties, as the risk to the
life of the treasurer is too great.
So people now come to the county
seat to pay their taxes or remit
by mail. The time for the pay
ment of taxes is now on and this
. is merely to remind subscribers to
the News and Herald that the
old custom of settling for the
county paper at the same time
that taxes are being paid is a
mighty good one.
