Hillsboro Wins.
"Hillsboro wins" is what you always
hear after a basket ball game by the
Hillsboro Hi'gh School and last Friday
night was no exception when the local
boys played Wilmington High. The
score was 28 to 23 in favor of Hillsboro.
The Hillsboro High School team has
not lost a game this season and have
proved their superiority over all of the
high school teams of this section of
the state. A state meet to determine
the high school championship of -the
state will be held at Deleware in
March. The team from each section
of the state will enter, in each case
the team making the best record in
its contests. Hillsboro has only one
more game to play with Wilmington
at Wilmington and confidently expect
to win this game which will give them
a clean record. v

The sorrel trotting gelding, Jack K,
2:14, has been sold by David' Craw
ford, of Buford, to Harry S. German,
of Monroe, Mich., who has placed him
in the stable of Harry Gray. About
the middle of last June Jack K created
a sensation by trotting a mile In 2:11
In Buford. He made a great show
ing at Lima, July 10, winning the first
and second heats In the 2:17 tiot in
2:14V and 2:14. The race was won by
Taylor Sturgeon, owned by Crone &
Sever, of Washington 0. H., this
horse winning the third, fourth and
sixth heats, thelfif th heat being ta cen

races he was ever in, he having piloted
Taylor Sturgeon to victory. "I never
in my life saw a bunch of horse9 work
harder to win than they did in this
great race", said Phillips. Jack K is
eligible to the 2:10 class and he will be
extensively campaigned the coming

List of People Having Money
in Banks Not Changed
in Seven Years
TOTAL AMOUNT $521.43
Merchants National Bank lias
the Largest Number of Ao
counts, Mostly Small
Four Banks None.
Under a provision of the state law
the banks of a county are required to
file In the orobate court of the county
between the first and second Mondays
of January of each year a list of the
unclaimed deposits in each bank. An
unclaimed deposit is one where the
date of the last bona fide debt or credit
shall be more than seven years prior to
the time of the filing of the statement.
If for eight years after the filing of
the first statement the deposit is still
unclaimed the bank must pay the
money into the county treasury. After
the money has been paid Into the
county treasury, the depositor can se
cure it upon proper proof to the satis
faction of either the probate court or
county commissioners.
The banks of Highland county have
all filed their statements as required,
with the exception of the Farmers &
Traders National Bank, of this place.
Philip O. Berg, cashier of the Farmers
and Traders National Bank, stated
that this bank, as a national bank was
not seven years old, and that he had
asked legal advice as to whether or not
the bank should file a statement and
had not been advised at this time what
action to take. Mr. Berg spoke as
though he would file a statement as
soon as possible if so advised by coun
sel. The reports made this year are the
first made by any of the Highland
county banks since 1002. Attention
of the probate court of the failure of
the banks to comply with the law In
this particular was called by C. E
Brotton, state examiner when he was
here last spring.

AVERAGE VALUES FIXED
Law is Explained and Duties of
Assessors is Briefly Out-
lined-They Begam
Work on Monday.
The township and village tax asses
sors of Highland county met at the
Auditor's otlice Friday afternoon to
receive their Instructions and supplies.
They began work onday
John A. Dodds, of the State Tax
Commission, was presentand went over
a number of matters contained In the
law. He stated that while they were
to assess both reil and personal prop
erty the Important thing was the
assessment of personal property as the
present appraisement of real estate
was considered very near its value.
Mr. Dodds stated that he under
stood that in this county that the
tangible personal property had in most
Instances been fairly valued and that
It was unnecessary to give any In
structions in regard to valuing It. In
regard to the valuing of feed for stock,
he said, that a liberal allowance should
be made to farmers tor this purpose,
about what would carry them up to
the first of April, the time at which
assessment was formerly made. He
stated that an effort would be made to
change the law again fixing April 1st
as the time when the tax lien became
effective. He urged the assessors to
be careful about swearing every person
who listed property ; to not allow the
exemption of $100 to every member of
a family; that there was only one head
in each family and the assessors knew
who was ; that the husband could not
claim certain property ; the wife cer
tain property and each of the children
certain property for the purpose of
securing exemptions.
When It came to intangible property
he told them that while they had no
more power than formerly they were
expected to be diligent and careful to
secure all of that kind of property pos
sible; that they should ask a man
about his credits, that is his notes,
bonds, mortgages, etc ; that alter a
man had given the amount of these
not to allow the man to say "I have
debts amounting to so much" and off
set that amount against the credits,
but to require him to show for what
and to whom he owed this money be
fore allowing it as an off set.
In appraising the stock of merchants
he also Insisted that the merchant
should not be allowed arbitrarily to
say it is so much; that it be appraised
at Its true value and If the merchants
would not do this for the assessor to
fix the value.
A copy of the pamphlet prepared by
the tax commission outlining the
powers and duty of the assessors was
given to each assessor and each one
urged to study it and familiarize him
self with its provisions before begin
ning the work. '
County Assessor John McMullen
then read a list which he had prepared,
fixing the rules for valuation, of live
stock and grain. The average values
named by Mr. McMullen were accepted
by the assessors. They are as follows :

The seniors of the High School en
Joyed a'sled ride on Monday night and
were entertained at the home of Mr.
and Mrs. M. S. Glaze, the parents of
Miss Margaret Glaze, a member of
the class.
Judge Newby was engaged the lat
ter part of last week and Monday In
hearing the case of Lizzie A. Pearce
against Charles Spence et al. MrH.
Pearce had died before the case came
on for trial and it had been revived in
the name of her husband, Moses
Pearce and son, Clarence. The suit
was to set aside a deed made by Mrs.
Mary Spenco to Charles Spence. Mrs.
Spence was the mother of Mrs Pearce
and Mr. Spence. The deed was for a
half Interest in something over 100
acres of land on which Mr. Spence
lives. The consideration was $2,600.
The Pearces state that the farm is
worth about $10,000 and that Mrs
Spence was not competent to make
the deed at the time it was executed
and that undue influence was brought
to bear upon her to get her to execute
It. Mr. Spence claims that when the
land was purchased by him and Ills
mother the agreement was that he
could purchase her Interest at any
time for her share of the purchase
price. He also stated that the value
of the farm had been largely increased
since it was purchased by reason of
Improvements he had made.
Judge Newby took the case under
advisement.
John R. Pence Indicted for assault
and battery on Thomas Holladay on
Dec. 2, oh Tuesday changed his plea
of not guilty to guilty. Judge Newby
fined him $50 and the costs. It will
be remembered that Pence struck
Holladay with a shovel seriously in
juring him during a quarrel over a
right of way. D. Q. Morrow repre
senting Pence and Prosecutor McBrlde
both made statements of the case to
the court, disagreeing only as to how
hard Pence struck Holladay. The
statement in brief was that while
Pence was doing some work on the
right of way Holladay and his two
sons came up; that Holladay made
complaints In regard to several mat
ters in connection with right of way
and that he called Pence a liar three
times, the third time Pence striking
him with a shovel.

VERY TRYING EXPERIENCES
In Learning Household Duties
Without Alodern Convenience
Writer is Daughter of
Dr. II. A. Brown.
The National Stockman and Farm
er, one c f the leading farm journals of
the country, has offered prizes to its.
women readers who send In the best
articles concerning their household
experiences. The first articles were
publlshtd iast week and Mrs. W. B.
Dunham, of Powhattan, Va , was
awarded third prize. Mrs Dunham
Is a daughter of Dr. and Mrs. H. M.
brown, of this place, and her article
will be read with interest by her many
friends in Hillsboro and Highland
county.
The article is entitled '-Three Years
of Learning" and Is as follows :
"Three years and a half ago I was
as Ignorant of the largest duties and
facts of life as many of the to-be pit
ied daughters of the modern age are.
I married arid went to live with my
husband on a run down Virginia farm.
I do not know what would have be
come of me if my husband's sister, a
woman independently capable had not
lived with us and borne a large share
of the tremendous amount of work
that it required to produce three meals
a day In the country without all "the
modern conveniences". As the reali
zation of my helplessness and igno
rance came upon me and of the stern
struggle that must necessarily be ours,
I was almost overcome with despair.
How thankful I am now to have had
the opportunity to partially overcome
the fearful lack of this overclvlli.ed
generation. But 1 must tell of some
thing I have done
"I have learned the rudiments of
cooking. 1 have learned to use a tire
less cooker. I have learned the pro
cess of laundering 1 have learned to
keep a house warm In winter with
oves instead of reljlng on a man and
a furnace 1 have had t.vo children,
one now a year old and one two and a
half. Without any knowledge of ba
bies before I was married I have with
many alarms to myself produced two,
that measured by the tests for healthy
babies as submitted in several maga
zines lately, are above the average.
To do that has been uphill work,
physically, as well as mentally. I
had to prepare a little set of clothes
without a particle of previous know
ledge of one piece. 1 had a hard tim&
adjusting myself to the fearfulness of
the responsibility of having a baby
all one's own If the baby cried my
heart would leap with terror at some
possible hurt. 1 could sleep but little
those first terror stricken weeks and
if I heard a little gurgle In the throat
of the baby I almost killed myself in
my frenzy to reach the side of her
basket quickly to see if she were stran
gling. 1 had to learn by the exper
ience of six or seven harrowing weeks
that .he baby was uot getting enough
to eat. Next 1 learned and put into
operation the process of feeding a
