of Mayor G. F. Tolly, of Auderson. As

mayor of Anderson eleven years, each
time a term of two years, and about the
only thing which will prevent him from
filling the office eleven more terms will
be that he don't Wast* the" office. Mr.

genial, a friend to all, who need genu

The weatherwiso prophets declare
that the winter now begun will be the
coldest ever known by the present gen
eration. Possibly these p. ^dictions are
inspired by the emissaries of the coal
trust. At all events the predictions are
similar to what was heard last year just
about this season. Last year the
prophets said that the fur bearing ani
mals bad coats much thicker than usual
and that therefore the winter Would be
much colder than the average^ As a
matter of record last winter was rather
mild and open. Perhaps tho prophets,
have redeemed their failure of last
year by a successful prediction now. i
Possibly if they keep on making these
predictions long enough they will hit it
Property ownera are reminded that
real estate is to be returned this year
together with personal property. For
some time past there has-been consid
erable dissatisfaction and complaint
among the land owners concerning the
number of acres upon which they pay
taxes. It is claimed by some that they
have been paying taxes opon a greater
number of acres than they really own.
To avoid doing this for the next four
years it is best to make out a complete
memorandum of the actual number of
acres and your other worldly posses
sions before leaving home to meet the
Auditor, so that there will be no mis
take in the future. The Auditor has
often been blamed by tho tax payers,
who really have, no one to blame but
