be liquidated until July 1st, 1809. It is
expected that the valuation will be de-'
creased this decade at least seventy-five
per sent but ' with our present state,
county, township and municipal debts
hanging over us. what real object would
there be in so doing t If the valuation Is
decreased the annual levies will have to
be increased, if the debt is liquidated. The
expenses connected with a re-valuation
cannot be less than seventy-five thousand
dollars. Now, taking into consideration
the present facilities we have lor placing

state finances and the enormous expenses
attending an appraisal every decade, is tt

The Press of Chicago, New York and
St Louis havfj sent us circulars requesting
space in our columns to advocate their
claim for the World's Fair to be held In
1892. In looking the ground over care
fully, we are inclined to think that in
justice to the people oi the United States,
the fair should be held in St Louis.

colored men aided in the preservation ot
the union, pay taxes snd know no other
country but this and are therefore en

Bute. We hope that the press in Dixie
will seon take a different view ol things.
The more the question is agitated in that
direction the wider the channel becomes
betweea the races. Encourage the
colored men to seek an education, give
them what rights they are entitled te
under the laws, respect them as citizens

The Law provides that every ten years
the electois In each township, ward and
' precinct, shall elect person to appraise
the real estate. At the annual election
held In April an assessor is chosen to
place taxable value upon the chattel
property, notes, bonds, new building, Im
provemenU of any kind msde to. the
building and place a value upon plats of
land surveyed and set apart lor town or
city purposes. In this way a complete
minute is or should be kept each year;
and if any tax-payer feels that the
assessor has placed too high a value upon
kit buildings, Improvements, town lots or
chattels, be is at perfect liberty to appear
before the commissioners and request
the valuation to be reduced; and, on ths
other hand if the assessors places too low
a valuation upon property, thy person has
the right to report the stmt to tha com
missioners and have It corrected. Tha
present valuation for taxable purposes
wss fixed In 1880; and In order, to pay our
state obligations, already contracted, on
the first of July each year, tha state

The college authorities are having the
southeast corner of the campus filled with
earth and gravel, with a view to seeding It

twelve foot square. Pictured lo this cloud

beautiful tree stood upon the point of land
touching the water, and its outlines were
so distinct, the shape of Its leaves were
visible; a steamboat was sailing on the
water, its masts and smoke-sticks ,'were
pictured very district and even the smoke
was seen puffing ana falling along in its

steamer; the steamer then changed Its
course, turning completely around, made
