Edifefield, S. C.
WEDNESDAY, FEB. 19, 1902.
Our young friend, Mr A F
Perkins, has purchased a half
interest in the Saluda Senti
nel. We wish him all suc
cess in his venture. Mr Per
kins was once employed in
this orHce and knows his bus
iness well. Saluda is to be
congratulated on his acquisi
tion. Mr C J Terrell, of the
Johnston Monitor, is associ
ated with him.-Aiken Jour
nal and Review.
We favor Edgefield having
water works and electric
lights, lt is a necessity as
well as a luxury for our town
to have a first-class system of
water works, for the town has
no protection whatever in the
way of fire extinguishers. It
is a known and indisputable
fact that taxes are too, high
now to think of levying ad
ditional to put in the much
needed systems of water and
light plants. It is far better
for the town to own these pro
posed plants and to operate
them, for, as we stated some
weeks ago, the' town would
operate them to make expen
ses, while a company or cor
poration would operate them '
for revenue and all the reve
nue they could squeeze from
the consumers. But, if it is
true-and it is-that Edgefield
is unable to own her own
plants, because of the already
... too high taxes, then it is best,
under the circumstances, to
grant a franchise to the in
"^-nnrators. It is a matter
will all be involved in. Iiis
best to grant prix&^s for as
. 4l^^fiar>ia5.p'ossible, solfTlu"
the expiration of such time,
matters are not operated sat
isfactorily to the citizens and
consumers, matters may be
righted. It is best for the peo
ple not to obligate themselves
to take these improvements
But will the'corporators put
in the plants without assur
ance of a certain amount of
pledged patronage ? Let us
have water works and elec
trie ligh:s^ but also let the au
thorities of our town be slow
in granting privilges and seek
advice from towns which are
more learned, because of the
experience they have had. j
The County Auditor's office will
.be open for the purpose of receiv
ing tax returns, of both personal
and real estate for taxation for the
year 1902, from January the 1st,
1902, to February the 20tb" 1902-.
All persons owning or controling
property in any inauner whatso
ever are required lo make returns
of the same between the dates
above mentioned, and any and all
who refuse or neglect to do so will
be charged with an additional as
sessment of 50 per cent, for non
return on personal property.
All persons persons owning land
are required by law to make re
turns of the same and to note on
their returns all transfers, to whom
and from whom.
Owners of real property, situate
partly withm and partly without
any incorporated town or city are
required to list the part in the city
or town separately from the part
outside the incorporated limits
Assessment of real estate values
is fixed by the County and State
Boards of Equalization every
Every*male citizen betw<en the
ages of twenty-one (21) and sixty
(60) years, except those incapable
of earning a support, from beiug
maimed or from other causes, and
except those who are made exempt
by law, shall be deemed taxable
At E dgefield Court House from Jan
uary 27th to February 20th inclusive.
I emphatically insist upon all
parties whoee duty it is to make
returns of their property for taxa
tion, to dv/ so within the time pre
scribed, by law. I recognize how
difficult it is for people to pay
their taxes, but the law must be

During the present season there
as seemed to be an epidemic of
ariousdiseases throughout a mun
er of Northern and Southern col
ees, especially in our more uota
ile Institutions. At Groton, Mass,
"neodore, Roosevelt, has bceu
ecently very ill. pneumouia has
teen the pro vailing type, a?.d tho'
. school of 400 students, was sus
?euded for some weeks on this ac
ount. At Pottstown, Penn, the
arge boardiug school at that place
ias also had to suspend on accouLt
if sickness. The Connie Maxwell
)rphanage, itt Greenwood, has re
?ently suspended the school ses
lions for some days on account of
neasles. A student died recently
tt the South Carolina college. This
ias uot, however, alone boen cou
iued to the colleges, but toprivato
amiliee as well, grip, pneumonia,
md measles having been unusual
y prevalent. Last year Clemson
iud Limestone colleges were both
luspended of th? same conditions.
Our owu Institute has had to
thare fer the first time a part of
hese conditions, there having a
leal of sickness among the stu
'oots Ibis >'ear- Th?B *or tiie ??5 C
JI has been a very unusual occur
ence, as, siuce the organization
ilev^n years ago, there have been
io deaths in the institution -until
his year. The two students who
iied were victims of pneumonia.
Throughout these troubles, Pres
deut-Bailey bas never thought of
?u?pensiou or in auy way 6birk
ng tho duties of the hour. He has
brough it all,borne every expeuse
)f medical tee, medicino, and a
rained nurse, and at the same
im-? given bis personal sympathy
iud attentiou to each patient,
liarge enterprises are always at
ended with large responsibilities,
md especially is this true of large
(ducatioual Institutions. Presi
lent Bailey has proven himself a
rise, kind, and heroic leader. May
lis stt:r aever set !
Edgefield has ever been known
is one of the healthiest of loeati
?ns, and has only shared with her
leighbors this year the prevailing
pidemics. We are glad to state
tow, that with the exception of
olds, there is no sickness at the
nsti'.ute. Mr Stevens and Mr
}ato, who have been sick, are cou
'alescing, and will soon be out.
Presideut Btiley, during this
?cholastic year, has borne au uuu
lual share of burden, but is equal
o ? very emergency, and has maui
ested to the people more than,
ir bis ability,aud the future gl"ry
)f the SCC I under his leader
?hip. The South Caroliua Oo-Ed
icational Institute is the crown o.
E Igefield and the assurance of her
:uture prosperity. May she ever
ive and move on "conquering and
o conquer ! "
