In several of the counties, no
bly Richland, Spartanburg,
ken, Sumter and others, the
ditors have worked hard to
t returns properly made by
ose liable for income tax. In
ers, however, nothing has
en done and the idea of the
mptroller general is that the
m should either be enforced or
pealed. Up to a few years
o the returns were made in
cret. The law, however, has,
en changed and as a result of
e publicity in the newspapers
uch has been accomplished

ere are many men in the State

Be Careful of Your Eyes.
Rest is essential in the treatment of Ce
diseased or overworked eyes-rest of de
eyes, rest of body and mind. Avoid ar
also wind, dust and smoke. Personal
habits enter into the question of the
causation of eye disease, and their to
regulation becomes, therefore, a part Ai
of the hygienic treatment. Diet is im- T]
portant, chiefly through its effects re
upon indigestion and general health,
which frequently have much to d'
with the condition of the eye. The ta
first offense against the eyes is read- A
Ing with a poor light. This requires ar
the ciliary muscle to do extra work to
sharpen sight. It applies to dim
lights, twilight, and sitting too far th
!rom the light." The second offense, ot
says the New York Weekly, is one of be
posture. Stooping or lying down con- Co
gests the eye, besides requiring un
natural work of the eye muscles.
Reading in railroad trains is a third re
offense, the motion causing such fre- ap
:uent changes of focus and position as se
to tax the muscles of accommodation be
as well as the muscles of fixation.
Reading without needed glasses, or
with badly fitted ones, is the last im- m
prudence. Eye-strain is certainly a bt
factor in producing disease of every th
part of the eye. Old age is the time
of retribution for those who have
sinned against their eyes. Young folk,
take good care of your eyes, and when
you are old you will reap a rich re- th
ward by retaining good eyesight till
late in life.
A vote of thanks is due the Wiscon- lei
sin professor who says that our old to
friend the tired feeling which comes
in the spring is not an acquired virtue
but is the result of heredity. If it Las
been handed down to us from our
forefathers, who acquired it through CC
much patient endeavor, anyone can to
see that we are not to blame. Still, ti
we think more of our ancestors be
cause of this discovery. Evidently they V
were human, remarks the Chicago
Daily News, and not mere stern, busy aT
automatons, as we have been taught of
to believe, who never relaxed but
were busy chasing work throughout
the livelong day and part of both ends,
of the night. Besides, we can the CL
more readily resign ourselves to the in
pleasure of being lazy in the spring m
when we know that we couldn't help
it if we tried.
Th~e treasurer of the Association ge
for Improving the Condition of the th
Poor of New York recently received in
two dollars from two small girls, with he
a note saying that the authors had
saved the money "from slang words." A
Every time they used a bit of slang 5
they fined themselves, and every time all
they heard others use any they re- or
quested a forfeit or a contributIon.
This plan would make some young t
people realize that silence is indeed t
Several Vassar college girls are act- ar
lag as probation officers for the city
court of Poughkeepsie. They are
studying the truancy problem in this sh
practical way, and hope to learn why th
boys are naughty. A special course in to
this subject might profitably be intro
duced in all the women's colleges. If o
the young women pursued it thorough

next generation of boys.
A confederate veteran in Texas re- -l
fused even in a sham battle to fire on
the Stars and Stripes. "We stopped re
doing that in '65," he said. This is sa
a spirit which will do much more for
the harmony and well being of the fu
union than raking up dead-and-gone sa
memories which serve no purpose but th
to stir ill feeling and sectional strife.

It seems that the government holds to

WHI Plant Lots of Cotton.
A farmer came in our ofiD&
last week and announced that
the farmers of this county are*
going to put every foot of avail
able land in cotton this year, i
and if the South generally fol- 3C
lows the example of our Pickens 01
county farmers we ought to pro
duce something like 15,000,000 er
bales. This is very encourag- ce
ing for a prosperous fall with
seven or eight cent cotton to pay of
guano bills, etc. We hope our st
informent is mistaken and the
farmers of Pickens county will d
pay attention to other crops
rather than place their entire ai
confidence in cotton. y
