Mr. Cole runs a two-horse farm, planting
grain principally. He planted ten acres
of cotton last year, and made eight 5001b.
bales of cotton. He averaged 18 bushels of
corn to the acre. He uses but little com
mercial fertilizers, last year using one ton
each of acid, kainit, and cotton seed meal.
He has this year sold 217 bushels of corn
and 10,668 pounds of fodder for which he
was paid $258.73. Besides this he has sold
other things off his farm to the amount of
not less than S150. Furthermore, Mr. Cole
makes all the provisions for his own and
farm use. He says that any one who will
live moderately economically and knuckle
down to hard work, can make a good living.

A Handbook to the Great Truths of
Capt. J. A. May, of Kiugstree, S. C., is at
the Central Hotel, and is the agent here for~
"Hitchcock's New and Complete Analysis
of the Bible."
The work is a large octavo volume of
about 1,200 pags and contains, of course,
all that is-in the ordinary Bible, together
with Cruden's Revised Concordance. The
work has been earnestly commended by the
most eminent scholars of all denomima
tions, and it has been very happily describ
ed as the Bible of the Wor~king Christian.
It is preeminently the Bible of the busi
ness man, the man of moderate scholarship
and of more moderate leisure. The reader
may turn-with a wonderful and unerring
rapidity to any subject that may be referr'ed
;o in the Scriptures.
It takes only a glance at Hitchcock's great
work to show that it is,. perhaps, the most
admirable pnblication that has been offered
for sale within the past twenty-five years.

The County Treasurer Explains.
M. EDITOR: I notice in your issue of
the 9th, a communication signed "Tom," in
which he says he is -serving tax executions
which necessitates much unnecessary rid
ing" And he goes on to say, "When
the Sheriff gave me the batch of papers I
was eager for the fray * * ashamed to tell
the public how badly I was chanced * *
soon found dereliction of duty some where,
or some body had done some miserably bad
book-keeking * * found nine out of ten
As every body knows the tax executions
are issued by the Treasurer, I deem it ex
pedient to say, that the finding so many
of these receipts is not chargeable to this
office, which I think I can show to every
fair and unbiased mind.
In the first place I have nothing to de
with the making up of the tax books on
which the tax charges are made. The book
is prepared by the County Auditor, turned
,over to me, I receipt for same, and then
proceed to collect the taxes as charged
When a tax payer pays his taxes, it is so
marked with the date of payment. During
the rush of the collection it is possible to
omit marking the payment of a name when
it is made, but experience has shown this to
be of very rare occurence and when this does
occur, of course it is my mistake and is cor
rected by me afterwards when discovered.
After the time for payment expires,
-I am directed by the laic to issue
executions against all unpaid taxes
charged on the tax book. Now it
frequently occurs that the same name is
found charged up with taxes unpaid in an
other township different to the one that the
party lives in or has paid in; or perhaps in
the same township two tax charges to the
same name in separate places.
It sometimes occurs that another person
bearing the same name of oue who has paid
his taxes is found and is really a delinquent
(this occurs mostly with colored people).
lint it also occurs that one and the same
person is charged up on tax book in two
places for the same tax. Of course he does
not and should not pay but one, and the ex
hibition of his receipt shows that he has
paid one tax and the other tax charged to be
These mistakes are called "double en
tries," and when discovered it becomes the
duty of the Co. Auditor to abate these erro
neous charges made on the tax book.
But the question is, why these "double
entries" which cause so much ''unnecessary
riding" and "finding receipts"? This is a
question that does not apply to me. As I
have already stated, the 'Treasurer-does not
make up the tax book for the collection of
taxes, and knows nothing of the charges
therein until the same is completed and
turned over to him, and he has no power to
add to, deduct from, or make a single cor
rection on same.
The book is prepared by the Auditor, and
I will add that where double "Tax Ieturns"
are made to him he cannot be blamed for
the "double entries" but it is through him
that any correction of erroneous assesments
of taxes can be made.
I will not suppose that "Tom" intended
to reflect directly on this office, but if he
felt agrieved, and it was his intention to do
so, I am satisfied that with this explanation
he willsee that he was doing me an injus
