pleasure to have corns just to see'
them come off with "Gets-It." It just
loosens the corn from the true flesh,
easily, and then makes it come ' clean

It makes the use of tape, corn-squeez-1

Get rid of those corns quickly,

Dose of Bemedy.
W. R. Davenport, of JfarKer, N. C.,
long suffered from a peculiar malady
of the stomach. He sought treatment
with but little relief. At times it
seemed that he would have to give up
He took Mayr's Wonderful Remedy
and found immediate benefit. He
"For years I have suffered from a
diseasr* u-hion nuzzled doctors. Thev
termed it catarrh of the stomach, saying
the only hope would be a change
of climate, and that in all probability
I would never get well. Then I heard
of your remedy. One bottle gave me
instant relief. It made me feel like
a new man. Your full course of treatments
has about cured me. Several of
my friends have also been cured."
Mayr'g Wonderful Remedy gives permanent
results for stomach, liver and
intestinal ailments. Eat as much aud
whatever you like. Xo more distress
after eating, pressure of gas in the
stomach and around the heart. Get oi>e
bottle of your druggist now and try it
on an absolute guarantee?if not satisfactory
money will be returned.

Atlanta, Dec. IS.?By what appears
| to ha .e been the merest, chance in '
! the world, a n.-w kind of cotton has
been discovered and developed in |
I \
I Georgia, in which the government has J
interested itself.
A couple of years ago a man by the j
name of A. G. Spiller of Pike county, j
farming near Barnes ville, received a j
shipment of goods from Europe and
| in the packing were several seeds
i having much the apnearance of coti
i ton seed. Out of curiosity he planted
j them and from the first planting~^rew
j what was a peculiar stalk of cotton. (
' It was carefully cared for and cue seed
j taken from the lint of that one Sx?uk
were planted tne past season. Out of
j the second planted other stalks were
: grown and from them was gathered
j about 25 pounds of Jint cotton. It is
f of a very fine texture resembling close;
ly wool, v The staple has been exhibited
| to a number of people, among them agj
ricultural experts, and 'has attracted
j a great deal of attention. From a
j number of courses where the cotton
! had been heard of, or by those who
j nave seen it, Mr. Spiller was offered
j a dollar each for the seed, but he de;
clined to sell. !
j The matter was brought to the at- j
; tentron of the agricultural department,
' in (Washington, and announcement is
row made that experts are to be sent i
: to Pil'e ccunty to make a survey of tire '
roil and an examination of the product
and condi:ions under wmcn it wasproduced.
In order , to make further
experiments it :s said the federal derailment
will, if it finds it n cessary, ,
to tr.n?e the origin of th seed, secure
a lot of them and find out what can be
, ''one with the new cotton in this sec- i
i tion.

;*i>hcre of Action With Plaudits
oi Their King:.
i ondcn, Dec. 27.?The British Indian
ar::;y c-crps has left France tor another
fie.d of o;:. rations, it was officially anncunced
At the parade of the Indian army
corps before-it left France the following
message from their king and emperor
was delivered to the men by the
Prince of Wales:
"i\:?re than a year ago I summoned
you from Tmlia to fight for the safety
of my empire and tte honor of my
pledged word in battlefields of Belgium
and France. The confidence which 3
then expressed in your sense of duty,
your courage and your chivalry you
since have nobly justified.
"I now require your services in another
fieM of action, but before you
leave France I send my dear, gallant
son, the Prince of Wales, who 'has
shared with ray armies the dangers
and hardships of the campaign, to
thank you in my name 'or your services
and to express to you my gratification.
"British Indian comrades in arms,
yours has' been a fellowship in toils,
hardships, courage and endurance,
often against great odds, in deeds
nobly done, in days of ever memorable
conflict. In the warfare waged under
new conditions and in peculiarly trying
circumstances you nave worthily
upheld the honor of the empire and the
great traditions of my army in India.
, "i have followed your fortunes with
the deepest interest and watched your
gallant actions with pride, and satisfaction
and I mourn with you the loss
ol main* gallant offic: rs and men. Let
it*fee vour consolation, as their pride,
that they freely gave iiieir lives in ^
just cause for rhe honor of my empire.
Thc-y died gallant soldiers and I shail
ever hold their sacrifice in grateful
"You leave France with just pride
in honorable deeds already achieved
and with my assured confidence that
your proved valor and experiences will
r.ot be further 'victories in the new
fipiri nf action to which you go.
"I pray God to bless and guard you
nnd to bring you safely, when final
victory is won. each to his own home,
there to be welcomed with honor
among his own people."

Delegates increased Power
to Legislature.
The State.
The State tax commission created by
an act of the last general assembly to
equalize ihe tax system of South Carolina
has completed its first annual report,
which is being mailed out to the
members of tiie general assembly.
A letter from A. W. Jones, chairman
of the commissioi^accompanying the
report is in part as follows:
"In handing you a copy of our first
annual report, we would call your attention
especially to the necessity for
amending the constitution, so as to re
move the restrictions on the general
assembly with reference to the taxing
power in order that the legislature
ma:y be free to adopt from time to time
such ?ystem as to it may seem best,
and to our recommendations for the
classification of property, for the purposes
of taxation, instead of the present
uniform system of taxation of
property for all purposes.
"It has been utterly impossible to
enforce the general property tax with
uniformity, equity or efficiency against
the modern forms of wealth known
is intangible property, and even as
" 1 ?? ? - - !
co tangiDie property, me vaiuro ui
which can 'be more definitely determined.
The amendments to the constitution
recommended by us would not
n themselves effect a change in taxation,
as the tax laws would have to be
changed by the legislature.
'1We do not wish to impose our judgment
in these matters on the people.
What we wish is that the bonds which
prevent the legislature from substituting
modern and equitable methods

vantageous in other states or which in
its wisdom may devise, for the unsatisfactory
methods .'o which the present
constitution binds us."
Taxation of Mortgages.
The commission also calls especial
attention tc 'the recommendations as
to taxation of mortgages and a survey
of the state. "Such survey is an absolute
necessity in order to place ail
J Im.as on the tax books," says the coinj
| 7;:. i rpc rt ".?ys: that the commission
? [Id not i .As.:: serious difficulties
j 'which inigiit Le thrown iu tli-e way'
j :o blcck Lhe reforms in asse^-.ments
' . n til they attempted to gather informJ
:icr. frcm the banking corporations to
=lio a* the actual true value of the
i banks and bank stocks." The inci#
i dental effect of the plan of the comj
mission, the report says, was to reduce
j the amount of taxes to be paid by some
: banks and increase the amount to be
| paid by others.
"The abolition of an arbitrary constitutional
three-mill school tax, and
the authorization of a flexible levy to
meet the amount of appropriations bv
the general assembly, for state, county
j and school purposes, is essential to a
satisfactory readjustment and reform
of present taxing methods in this state,
an<l to an equitable assessment and
taxation of property for the purposes
of meeting the annual appropriations,
and the avoidance- of inequalities and
unnecessary taxation, says uie cum
Real Estate.
The commission states that it had
no right under the law to assess real
estate. It can only review the assessments.
The assessment of textile property
bjy the commission shows an increase
of $1,801,027 as compared with last
year. The increase dn the value of
railroad property for taxation is fixed
by the- commission as $939,161. The
fvalue for street railways, light, heat
and power companies as assessed for
taxation was $4,4S2,3S6 over the val!
nation as fixed by the county boards
j in 1914.
The commission states that through
; investigations, in checking up the
duplicates and statements prepared
j by the county auditors with the pub<
lished reports made by certain local
, corporations, other than banivs, it was
J discovered that taxable property to
; the amount of $471,120, belonging to
j su \\ corporations, had been, and was
I escaping taxation.
The commission recommends a
strict enforcement of the state income
tax la\V. The amount derived by the
state from the income tax this year
! was $31,126.87, as compared with $15,;
303.31 in 1914. The commission says
that the law is being laxly enforced
in some counties. "The auditors refusing
to enforce the law should be removed
by the governor," says the re
j port.
An inheritance tax is urged by the
! commission.

Concerning iptHs escaping taxation
the renort savs*
"With a r""" *o ("scovep'ng lands
which arc escaping taxation, because
not on the tax books, this commission
n<j.d surveys made of five of the city
blocks in ?Co'um'bia and found as to
three of them that twc-thirds of the
lands and one-hall* of the buildings in
one black were not returned for taxation
or taxed; in anotner block 23-40,
or over a half of the land, and half of
the buildings were escaping taxation.
In the third black 23 frcnt feet, valued
at $460,000, and a lot and small building
valued to $600 escaped taxation.
The value of the lots and buildings
not returned on the first block was
$>4,400. Tne value of the lots and
'-/' dings no" returned on the second
block was $3,600. These are the estimated
taxable values in accordance
vntii the resolution of the city assessors,
and not the market va'ues. In
.he original area of the city of Columbia
there are 400 blocks. We publish
one of these maps, made under our
direction, to illustrate the character
Df this work; see map in this report,
exhibit 16, allowing tabulated matter.
"Such property escaped taxation,
because of deductions made grantors
selling without charging up the lands
against the grantees. Similar omissions
of lands and buildings from the
ta* hooks occur also in other towns,
cities and country districts throughout
the state. Through the -influence
of this commission the city of Columbia
has been induced to undertake a
survey of the city, on accurate maps
of each block showing who are in possession
thereof, and those that are vacant,
their size and taxable value as
fixed by the' city board of assessors,
and will-use this dafe in checking up
the tax duplicates with reference to
property in the city. Such a survey
and maps should be obtained covering
all lands in the state, arranged by
towns, cities and school districts, on a
scale sufficient to show the owner's
name, acres of the plat, and persons
transferrins- lanrls and other real
property should be compelled to state
fully the consideration for the transfer,
the true value at the times when
deeds of conveyance are made.
"The comptroller general in his annual
report to The general assembly /
for 1912 recommended such a survey
cf the lands in this state, in connection
with the United States department
of agriculture, which is now engaged
in a soil survey cf the state, as will
more fully appear in the comptroller
general's report for 1912." 1
