THE TAX QUESTION FIGURES
Largely in the Early Consideration of
IiOgiHlattvo Mutters.
Columbia. Jan. 12.-Representa
tivo Mowor, of Newberry, to-day in
troduced In tho House a resolution
to limit tho total appropriations to
the amount of appropriations in I y li,
and to limit tho tax levy to 9 mills
In the dellvory of his message thu
Governor called for a levy of not over
9 mills. It appears that reduction o.
taxes is the chief aim of the presen'.
Legislature. There will be a meeting
of the farmers In the Assembly to
night to consider tax reductions.
Representative J. B. Atkinson, of
SpartUuaburg, was olectod Speaker
pro tem of tho HOUBO to-day over
Claude N. Supp, of Columbia, by a
vote of 62 to 49. Mr. Atkinson was
nominated by Representative Tommy
McMillan, of Charleston. Mr. Sa pp
was nominated by W. D. Barnett, of
Columbia.
The most important action tak?n
by the lower bouse yostorday was the
overwhelming adoption by the mem
bers of an amendment to tho rules of
the bouso, Introduced by R. I. Mc
David, of Greenville, taking out of
the hands of tho Speaker tho' ap
pointment of committee chairman
ships and making them electivo by
the members. The commltteo mem
bers, however, will continue to be
named by the presiding officer.
An amendment eliminating tho
section of the rules prohibiting tho
Speaker from endeavoring to influ
ence any question" heforo the body
was decisively defeated. This amend
ment likewise was introduced by Mr.
Mc David.
Another resolution by Mr. McDa
vld providing that the county sup
ply (or revenue) bills bo introduce 1
as one measure instead of separately,
as now Is the rule, wont over for
consideration until to-day, as did un
amendment by J. K. Owens, of Mar!
boro, abolishing the olllce of Speake'.'
pro tempore.
First Bill to Extend Tax Rayment
Two bills of more than ordinary
importance were introduced Tues
day, but went over without being
read because they could not be re
ferred for lack of committees, which
will be announced by the Speaker to
day. One was by J. J. Fvans, of Marl
boro, extending the time for pay
men; of taxes until April 1, without
penalty, after which time the max'
mum penalty of ii per cent will ba
operative. The other was by Oeorge
S. Mower, of Newberry, who intro
duced a bill providing for the red no
tion of acreage planted In cotton this
year.
Geo. S. Mower, of Nowborry, pro
sided as tompornry chairman before
the permanent organization of the
house, which was completed at 1.1F
o'clock Tuesday afternoon.
QUESTION CLEARED UP
Walhalla Readers Can No Longer
Doubt the Evldenoe.
Ag*.in and again we have read of
strangers In distant towns who have
been cu .'ed by this or that modiclne.
But Walhalla'? pertinent question
has always boon "Has anyone bore In
Walhalla been cured?" The word of
a stranger living a hundred milos
away may bo true, but it cannot have
the same weight with us as tho word
of our own citizens, whom we know
and respect, and whose evidence we
oan so easily prove.
Mrs. O. H. White, Broad St., Wal
halla, says: "A few years ago I hod
backache and other symptoms of kid
ney trouble. I had sharp pata? shoot
through my kidneys and I was In
pretty bad shape. I waa feeling quite
miserable when I was told to try
Doan's Kidney fills and one box on

JAMES T. CUNNSHAW IS DEAD.
Was a .Nativo of Walhalla, but Ila?]
Resided at Newry for Veal's.
Newry, Jan. 12.-Special: On the
Uh day of Jtfnuary, 1921, the Death
Angel visited the home of James
Thomas Cronshaw and claimod bim
as a victim over the protest of those
who were near and dear to him. But
since the Doath Angel is impartial,
he goes into thc homes of all-tho
rich, tho poor, tho high and low
and claims his victims Just the same.
So on Jan. 4th, lt ploasod the Doath
Angel to call James T. Cronshaw
from it: . He was born at Walhalla
about tho year 1852, having lived to
be about sixty-nine years old. His
doath occurred at his home hero at
'Newry, where ho had resided for a
great many years.
In tho year 187C Mr. Cronshaw
was married to Miss Johanna Dodd,
who precoded him to tho grave about
sixtoen years, leaving him with six
sons and two daughters, all of whom
now survive tholr father, their names
and placeB of residence being as fol
lows: J. D. Cronshaw, of Atlanta,
Qa.; C. L. Cronshaw, of Philadel
phia, Pa.; D. H., R. C., O. L., Thodo
and Miss Jennie Cronshaw, and Mrs.
Claude Anderson, all of the latter re
siding noar Newry.
Mr. Crensbaw united with tho Ma
sonic fraternity at Walhalla about 48
years ago, and at his death was an
honorary member of Blue Ridge
Lodge No. 9 2. The funeral was con
ducted by mern hors of Walhalla and
Newry Masonic lodges. The Inierl
mont took place in the cemetery of
tho Fairview church. He was a be
loved brother, worthy of the honor,
love and respect of his fellow crafts
men. The religious riles at tho fune
ral were conducted by Rev. Bro. W.
M. Abbott.
The bereaved relatives have the
sympathy of many friends in their
sorrow. B.

Stop Your Cold, Says Uncle Sam.
One of the most Important things
to do after having contracted a cold
is to take a foot bath at a tempera
ture of 115 degrees Fahrenheit, a;
good, hot drink, either hot lemonade
or hot milk, and a dose of relaxing 1
i
medicino. j
If it is convenient, it is well to
take a full hot or warm bath from
100 to 115 dogreos, and then go at
once to bod.
i
You will bo surprised how much
time you can savo by recognizing tho
first danger signal of the so-called :
common cold.
As regards food, eat moderately. |
Whiskey and heavy doses of quinine
which you froquontly hear recom
mended are decidedly objectionable,
and do more harm than good.
Remember, the so-called cold may i
bo the beginning of an attack of In-j
fluenza or tuberculosis, or pneumo
nia, or, in children, not lnfrequetnly,
of whooping cough or measles.
A cold In a young Infant ls always
dangerous. It spreads rapidly If not
gotten promptly under control, and
soon Involves tho bronchial tubos
and tho lungs, resulting In broncho
pnoumonla, which ls a very fatal dis
ease In children under five yoars of
ago.
The mother who has a cold should
always wear a mask when nursing
her baby, so as to prevent the possi
bility of any droplets coming in con
tact with tho child.

the largest textile plants In the Car
olinas, last wook announced that it
would run on half time until it could

TEXT.-And he wus angry and would
not go In: therefore carno MB father out
and entreated bim.-Luke 16:28.
D. L. Moody frequently preached on
.The Elder Brother." He said ho did
BO because there
arc so many of
html
In the first in
stance the elder
brother repre
sented the Phari
sees. The open
lng verses of
Luke 16 read
thuB: "Then drew
near unto Him all
the publicans and
sinners for to
bear Him. And
tho Pharisees and Scribes murmured,
saying, This man receiveth sinners
and eateth with them." It was to re
buke this murmuring, by setting forth,
In contrast, tho seeking love of God,
which goes forth to publicans and shi
ners, that Jes?s spake the parables of
the lost sheep, tho lost coln, nnd the
lost man, or the prodigal son. In fact,
he draws a portrait of the murmuring
Pharisees In the story of the elder
brother. As Mr. Moody said, there
are still many of him, for he finds suc
cessors In all formal religionists, who
! have no sympathy with God's Joy over
the recovery of the lost.
First of all, such men find no Joy In
the servlco they themselves offer God.
When the prodigal came home, the fa
ther called on those about him to
make merry. Tho parablo goes on to
say: "Now his elder Bon was In the
field; and as he came and drew nigh
to tho house, he heard music and I
dancing. And be called one of the I
servants, and asked whnt these things
meant" (vv. 20, 28). Such merriment
was foreign to his spirit. And so lt ls
always with formal religionists, for
j the Joy of Hie Lord IB not theirs. John
! Wesley was such an one even after
j being ordained to preach. When on
j his way to America ns a missionary to
1 the Indlnns, his ship ran Into a drend
! ful storm. He was disturbed nt the
I outlook, and was amazed to hear a j
! company of simple-hearted Moravian
I Christin.is singing calmly and Joyous- I
? ly lu the midst of the storm. Even
their children Joined tn the songs,
? Wesley was forced to contrast their
conduct with his own feelings. Tho
incident was an important factor in
leading him Out of a life of religions
bondage Into the liberty of the glory J
of the children of God.
I Notice, too, the restraint between I
I this son and his father. When he
would inquire as to the sounds of
merriment bi the bon BC, he did not
ask his father, but went to a servant.
A life of true prayer ls impossible to
the formal religionist He says pray- I
era, bnt this ls not the same as pray
ing. The prayers of the Pharisees
were foll of vain repetitions, for like
the heathen they thought they would
be heard for their much speaking. To
refer to John Wesley again, he never
prayed without n prayer book until j
after he bed come Into tho experience
of a true child of God. How different I
ls such restraint from "the boldness
and access with confidence" to which I
God invites us.
How beautiful to read: '^Therefore
came his father out and entreated
him" (v. 28). It has been well rf?
marked that this verso shows tht/.-o
ls a gospel for the Pharisees I God
lotos iha formal religionist quite aa
much aa the prodigal. And if he only
knew lt, rae" formel religionist needs
the compassion and grace Of God quite
as much ns does the prodigal.
For, see the spirit exhibited In rho
Ron's complaint, that thc father had
never given him n kid that he might
make merry with his "friends." Evi
dently his springs of Joy were not In
his father, but In his friends. And, '
verily, the successors of thc elder
brother would not he happy even In
heaven. They would not find their
Joy there with the Father and would
not respond when the Great Shepherd
said : "Rejoice with me : for I have
found the sheep which was lost."
But did not the father say, "Son,
thou art ever with me, and all that I
hnve ls thine?" Yes, but he refers only
to earthly things; the "living" he hail
divided. True, lt ls better not to
squander our "substance," of body and
mind and possessions, In riotous liv
ing, ns did the prodigal. But lt ls true,
also, that while a correct life ls better
than nn Irregular one, it will not of
Itself secure heaven.
The best robo was graciously laid
on tho repentant prodigal's shoulders.
The elder brother never wore lt, and
never will, until he recognises the
filthiness of his rags I
8um Total of a Life.
The sum total of n life lived In union
with God ls realized when the highest
aspiration of the soul takes form In
corporate and objective worship, and
prayer becomes but the voice of one
who has placed at the feet of the Lord
Jesus a soul consecrated to the service
of the dear Master, and tho greater
glory of His holy Nome.-Hov. Henry

1920. Uncle Sam. through the bu
reau of internal revenue, is address
ing to every person in the United

ried person whose net Income was
$2,000 or more, is required to file

AH an aid to farmers the bureau
of internal revenue has prepared a
special form (1040F) for recording
salos of livestock, produce, and a
summary of ?nco mo and expenses.
This form should be attached to tho
taxpayer's individual return on Form
1040 or 104OA. Full instructions for
making out the forms are contained
in each.
Under gross income a farmer ls
required to include all proceeds de
rived from the sale of farm products,
whether produced on tho farm or
purchased for resale. When he ex
changes his products for grocories,
clothing or other merchandise ho
must include in his income tho value
of tho articles received and exchang
ed. Profit received from tho salo of
farm land or rent reel ved for the use
thereof must also bo Included.
Determining Net Income.
In determining his not Income,
upon which the tax ls assessed, tho
farmer may deduct all necessary ex
penses incurred in tho operation of
his farm during tho year. These In
clude tho cost of cultivation, harvest
ing and marketing'of crops, the cost
of seed and fertilizar used, amount
spent in repairs to farm buildings
other than the dwelling, and to tho
fences and machinery. Tho cost of
farm tooth' used up in tho course of
tho year, Wages paid to employees
other than domestic servants, and
rent paid for farm land and build
ings (other than dwelling) aro de
ductible items.
Farmers who keep no records or
only records of cash receipts and dis
bursements, should make their re
turns on the basis of actual receipts,
but farmers who keep complete ac
counts and who take Inventories nt
tho beginning and end of tho year to
determine thoir profits, should report
on the accrual basis. Both methods
are fully explained on Form 1 040F,
copies of which may he obtained
from the oifices of the collectors of
internal revenue.
