Work of the State Board of Equalization.
Tbe State Hoard of Equalization met in
Columbia again last week and completed
its work for tbe ensuiug year. The
Board wrestled with the knotty problem
of tbe equalization of real estate values
for several days and finally had to give it
up as a bad job, and left values as fixed
by County Hoards, memorializing the
Legislature, however, to pass laws that
will make it possible to carry out the
purpose of the Act relatiug to equaliza
tion. Then the values of cotton mills,
oil milis, etc., were passed upon aH as
certained by tbe Board, put ou a ?10 per
cent basis of valuation, and left at that.
The full valuation as fixed by the
Board on cotton mill property In Ander
son County Is as follows :
Anderson Cotton Mills.? 041,050
Cox Manufacturing Co. 70,000
Orr Cotton Mills. 400,000
Riverside Manufacturing ( o. so.OOii
Fendleton Manufacturing Co. 50,000
Belton Cotton MUIb. 400,000
Pelzer Manufacturing Co. 1,000,000
Piedmont Manufacturing Co. 1,320,000
Williamatou Cotton Mills.Not lixed
The valuation on the Cotton Heed Oil
Mills in this County was lixed as follows:
Anderson Oil Mill.f22,O00
Excelsior Oil Mill. 22,000
Farmers' Oil Mill. 25,000
Pendleton Oil Mill. 10,000
Honia Path Oil Mill. 10,000
Peb.erOll Mill. 22,0<m>
WlUlamston Oil Mill. l l.ouo
Rice Bros., Belton.No return
Tbe valuation on tbe plant of tbe An
derson Fertilizer Co. was lixed at?mu,^)0.
Tbe real problem was struck by the
committee on percentage in changing tbe
real estate calculations. Tbe committee
figured on a 70 per cent basis. In Ander
son County this basis would mean an in
crease of 25 per cent, and it would have
made an Increase In at least two thirds
of tbe other counties of tbe State.
After much discussion the following
resolutions wero ottered by I). Aaron
Jeer, Anderson County's representative
on the fctate B jard, no a substitute for tbe
report of tho committee on percentage
at i| were adopted by a vote of '21 to 12:
(o view of ibe fact that tho reports on
w.iti h MUt.uu bas to bo taken are some
what incomplete, ami in view of tho
further facta that personal property, hank
stock and railroad properly are not avail
able for "reassessment this year, and tbe
assessments upon per.-onal property,
bank stock aud railroad property has
linsUy been fixed for this year and under
the law cannot be affected by any basis
of assessment agreed upon at this meet
ing of tho State Board, be it
Kesolved, That this Board accept all
returns of the real estate as adopted by
the county boards of equalization.
2nd. That tbe report on cottou mills be
accepted and that tbe valuation as glveu
by the committee be adopted, and that
tbe percentage for assessment tor cotton
mil' property be fixed at 00 per cent as
3rd. That tbe report of the committee
on cotton seed oil mills as io value, be
adopted, and that do per cent of thtit vaiuo,
as last year, be adopted as the basis of
4'.h. That the report of the committee
on fertilizer factories be adopted as the
basis of valuation, and mat 00 per cent of
tbe values be used as the basis of assess
ment for taxation as last year.
Resolved, That this Board respectfully
urge the general assembly to provide at
its next session some plan by which a l
classes of property, including real estate,
personal property, mills, bank stock,
railroad property and all other classes of
taxable property, can be reached at one
time, and so tbat the various classes of
property sball not be variously atlected
by tbe action of any State Board, as would
bo tbe case if this board adopted tbe70
per cent bat 1b upor real estate aud textile
mills, and was. unable to reach other
classes of property already finally assess
ed for the year.
All of tbe reports were agreed to and
tbe 00 per cent basis ratified by tbe Board
upon tbe figures agreed. This basis will
result in an increase of 10 per cent en real
estate In Anderson County.
A Pleasant Day.
Mr. Editor: On Saturday, July 20tb, a
jolly crowd of pleKntckers mot at tue
country home of P. B. Gentry. It was a
gathering of kindred, aud quite early the
merry aunts, uucles and cousins began
to arrive. Mr. Gentry s home is a few
miles from the city, and is centrally
situated for the relatives. Very soon ono
side of the grove was o? vered with vebl
oles and the other with young people,
who were in the best of spirits.
Tbe occasion was in honor of Mrs.
Martha Hall, who is here from Oeorgla
visiting. It was her sixtieth blrthdav.
Anderson was her girlhood home but she
has been away many yearr.
In all, sixty-four relatives and a few
friends were present to wish for the guest
many more happy returns of tbe day.
Each one enjoyed the day throughout.
Promptly at 12 o'clock a long table was
made in the- shade of tbe obka aud spread
all over with everything good to eat
Cold lemonade and uioe, country water
melons were furnUhed in abundance.
Mrs. Hall is tbe oldest daughter of
Robert Kevr. Her brothers and ?isters
are A. C. Keys, E. B Keys, R. A. Ke>s,
Mrs. James L?. Kay and Mrs. P. B. Gen
try, ail of Anderson County, and Mrs. J.
M. Thompson, of Birminutjam, Ala. All
of them were prese't wuu their families
except one brotb< r, though his family
was represented, aud Mrs. ihouipson.

I lie Salstda Associalion.
ThuSaluda Baptist Association, held
at Mountain Creek Church Tuesday.
Wednesday and Thursday of last
week, was one ol the most enjoyable
and largely attended occasions held in
this county loi years It was a Bap
tist occasion, hut there were present
hundreds ot visitors representing all
denominations, and, except the neces
sary routine ot church work in the
business meetings, there was a total
obliteration of denominational lines.
The aggregate attendance during tho
three days was not less tiian 3,500, all
of whom were made welcome,and, like
the multitude, were fed and many bas
kets of fragments were left.
Seven miles southwest of Anderson,
on tlie Holland's Ferry road, is Moun
tain Creek Church. It is beautifully
situated at the foot of Little Mountain,
with an abundance of shade from mas
siv?* oaks. Across the road from the
church is a small frame school house,
and mar this there was constructed for
this occasion an immense arbor, where
religions services were held morning
and afternoon. The business meetings
were held in the church. The Ladies'
Missionary .Society held its meetings
in the school building. At no time
could more than one-half the crowd be
scateil in the buildings and arbor, ami
those not liuding seats either clustered
about the meeting in which they found
gleutest interest, or wandering over
the ?rounds meeting old friends and
making new acquaintances. There was
about this large gathering nu atmos
phere of welcome and good fellowship
Which made every one happy.
There were present 130 delegates
representing 41 churches. J. L. Trib
ble, was elected Moderator of the
Association, and He v. W. W. Leathers
and S. P. T?te clerk and assistant clerk,
respectively. , ruminent among those
present were Dr. A. P. Montague, re
tiring President ot Furman University,
Kcv. A. T. Jamison, of the Connie
Maxwell orphanage, Dr. Harvey
Hatcher, of Atlanta. Rev. It. H. Bur
riss, formerly of tbis county but now
oi Virginia, Rev. K. C. Jones, Presi
dent of the Greenville Female College;
Rev. J.B. Collier, of Georgia, and oth
Wednesday was the "big day" of the
Association. No less than 2,500 people
were in attendance. The most inter
esting feature of the business meeting
this day was an address on education
by Dr. Montague. It was a learned
discourse, most excellently prepared
and delivered. His familiarity with
and appreciation cit the great authors,
a part of whose accomplishments and
styles were made to embellish his ad
dress, ileliirhted his appreciative hear
ers, as did also the bints and sugges
tions, culled from experience and wis
dom, on education in general.
The sermon at the arbor Wednesday
morning by Kev. K. H. Burriss was
highly instructive and delivered in a
plain." manly stylo, which never fails
tob?* appreciated. Mr. Burriss is the,
son of the late Levy Burriss and Mrs.
Susan. Burriss, who survives. The his
tory of this family is closely linked
with the history of Mountain Creek
Church. Three generations at le.nst
of the family have worshiped hen.1, and
death cume to Levy Burriss, father of
Kev. U. II. Burriss, while attending
service in this Church?a realization of
a hope he had long entertaiued and
often expressed. All of the services
during the three days were instructive
atid entertaining, but waut of spnee
The prominent families of this
Church, who so generously provided
something good to eat and barrels of
pure water for the mote than 5.000
people attending the Association, and
who made it a point to let no one go
unprovided for, have shown a hospi
tality which has never been and can
never he surpassed.
The Association next year will be held
at Salem Church, where the first Asso
ciation was organized in 1803. This will
be the centeuuial celebration of the As
sociation, and will most certainly boa
ijeatli of a Good Citizen.
Mr. Charles S. Milford died nc his
home in Fork Township uear Broyles,
last Saturday morning, and by his
death Auderson CouuLy ioses another
one of her best and most worthy citi
zens. Ho had been in feeble health
for a year or more, and for several
weeks past his death was expected at
anytime by bis family. Mr. Milford
was in the 77th year of his age, and
was born aud reared in Corner Town
ship. In his young manhood ne moved
with his father to Oconeo County,
where he resided until 1870, when he
returned to Anderson County and
located in the Broyles section, lie was
a practical aud successful farmer, and
by his industry and intergrity acquired
il competency. No man stood higher
in the Community for honesty and
Christian character. He bad since his
boyhood been a devoted member of the
Baptist Church, and at the time of his
death he was n dencon in Oakdale
Church, near his home. He served
Ins .State faithfully through tho civil
war as a member of Orr's Regiment,

THE BEST METHOD OF FRYING FOOD.
Some Valuable Suggestions and How to
Get Satisfactory Results. No Need
of Having Dyspepsia. ,
Most physicians, especially In the
northern Unltea States, say that fried
food is responsible for most of the dys
pepBla, especially In the south, where
fryirr* Is most prevalent.
Thic is no doubt true, in a broad and
average way. but It Is not necessary
that It should be true. Too much grease
of any kind, and in any way, is cer
tainly bad for the digestion; but the
conclusion must not be too hastily
reached that fried food Is necessarily
greasy. Grease for cooking should be
looked upon merely as ns a medium for
communicating a high degree of heat.
It is not usually possible to cook things
In water to a higher temperature than
212 degrees, and hence in many cases
it Is necessary to cook meats, etc., a
long while at this temperature to get
them done. But it Is easily possible to
cook things equally well done in grease
In a much shorter time, on account of
the higher temperature that may be
reached?sometimes 300 to 400 degrees.
The true way to cook In grease is to
get it very hot before Introducing the
meat or other article. When It is
dropped In the higher degree of heat
immediately chars the outer surface
and closes the pores, so that the grease
cannot get inside. It is important to
keep the heat up, and not to put the
articles into the grease so fast as to
lower the temperature. When done,
they should be immediately removed
and laid on u cloth to absorb the ad
hering grease. Many cooks take a
frying pan off tho Are with the eggs
or meat in it, all cooked, and leave it
so until served. This is the next best
way to let the grease soak through to
the centre. The very best way to soak
the grease in. and the very best way
to promote dyspepsia is to put the ar
ticles in the frying pan to cook when
the grease is not hot enough.
Frying is generally a most wasteful
manner of cooking, for the reason that
so much of the grease is thrown away
after the article is cooked. This is gen
erally unnecessary. If the frying has
been properly done, the greuse has not
taken up much from the article cooked.
The grease may be poured from the
frying pan into a vessel of hot water,
when most of the foreign matter will
settle and the pure grease will float,
after somewhat washing Itself in the
water. It may then be used again and
again with the best results.
There is naturally a smell from any
frying grease. In Europe, where many
kinds of grease and oils are used for
frying, people become accustomed to
the different smells, and do not mind
them. In this country all are accus
tomed to the ameli of frying hog lard,
when it was first proposed to cook
with cotton oil the new smell was ob
Jectionable, especially the smeli of
badly .refined oil. and thus there grew
a prejudice against its use. Another
caus? for bad results with the oil was
the fact that often times the cook
would not wait for the oil to get hot
enough before putting it in tho articles.
When using inrd. the cook would natur
ally wait for It to melt, and it would
?et hot without provoking impatience.
But the oil looks ready when it Is first
put in the frying nan. and there Is a
temptation to use it too soon. There
has been much steady work done by
those who make cooking compounds
from cott.-n oil. with a view to reducing
or disguising the smell. The result has
been most gratifying. There are sev
eral concerns making a specialty of
oil retlned for use in cooking, without
further manipulation. The Wesson Pro
cess company of Savannah, Ga.. has
been very successful in this line and
will be glad to mall cook books. -
There arc also a number of highly
satisfactory cooking greases made
from cotton oil and beef fat. such as
"Palmatena" and "Snow Drift." both
of which products are extensively
manufactured by the Southern Cotton
Oil Company of the Carolinas and
Georgia at their works in Savannah.
They ore both high class and reliable
products in which the pure cotton seed
oil is used and they resemble lard in
appearance and results, but are more
satisfactory and healthy, and which are
superior to hog lard from every point of
view. That they are much more
healthful there con be no ?jSfet.
