Mr. B. F. Fleming, of Plowden's Mill
Township, found a $2.50 gold piece in his
meal just after the corn had been ground at
a mill last week. He says that he did not
drop the coin himself, because he had no
gold of any kind, and that no one else was
abont his corn or the mill. Just how the
coin got into the meal is a mystery.

given last Friday night at the closing of the

known as a "-straw ride, and as there were
fourteen persons in one wagon the accounts

interesting. One young man says there was
but one wisp of straw between him and the
bottom of the wagon. They all say they en
joyed it though.

Several of our subscribers at country post
offces have complained recently about being
'uable to get their papers, and when at last
they do receive them they have the appear
ance of having beea much handled by oth
er persons. We regret to be forced to com
plain of this sort of thing, but there is a
time when patience ceases to be a virtue, and
we must remind the several postmasters
that when a paper is addressed to a party it
is private property, and intended for the
party to whom it is addressed. There is a
certain class of people that merit the name
of "dead beats," and any man that will go
to the postoffice and call for his neighbor's
paper instead of subscribing for it himself,
lad just as well go to a store and buy a suit
of clothes on his neighbor's account without
his knowledge or consent. We are very
particular with our mailing lists, and mis
takes are exceedingly rare, so if a subscrib
er fails to get his paper the fault is not with
us, but with the postmaster that gives the
paper to some person other than to whom it

Several ladics in the northern portion of
the town were very much exercised over
what they supposed to be a large meteor
passing throngh the skies last Sunday night.
This supposed-to-be-meteor resembled a
large ball of fire, and so excited was one of
the ladies that it would have been difficult
to have told which was larger, the lady's
eyes or the supposed meteor. All attempts
to quiet her proved fruitless, as she was fuil
ly convinced that it was a precursor ot
soethmng awful that would soon follow,
and her husband being away from the
house at the time she was -afraid that his
poor, dear body migzht come in contact with
the "big ball of fire" or be buried amid the
ruins of the destruction it would soon make.
She was awfully worried, and her hair was
red with excitement. WVhen she learned that
a balloon had been sent up by a little boy
that lives on Main street, and after being
convinced that the supposed meteor was the
same little balloon, and that her darling
husband was all right, she quieted down,
simply remarking tnat little boys should
not be allowed to send up balloons on Sun

He whipped his horse, and the tree struck
the rear end of the wood on his wagon,
throwing it all off the wagon. and throwing

feet, and sustained no harm to self or wag

A good way for the taxpayer who
has much property to return, is to
make a memorandum of the number
of horses, cattle, mules, sheep and
goats, hogs, watches, organs and pi
anos, buggies, wagons and carriages,
dogs, merchandise, machinery, mon
eys, notes and accounts (above indebt
edness), furniture, &c., which will save
the taxpayer time, and enable the as
sessor to progress in the work.
Taxpayers return what they own on
the first day of January, 1891.
- Assessors and taxpayers will enter
the first given name of the taxpayer
in full, also make a separate return
for each party for the township the
property is in, and where the taxpay
er owns realty to insert the postoffice
as their place of residence, and those
who only own personal property to
give the party's name who owns the
land they live on as their residence,
which aids the taxpayer as well as the
county treasurer in making the col
lection and preventing errors.
Every male citizen between the ages
of twenty-one and fifty years on the
first day of January, 1891, except
those incapable of earning a support
from being maimed, or from other
causes, shall be deemed taxable polls.
All returns that are made after the
twentieth day of February next have
to be placed on the additional list and
fifty per cent. penalty added thereto,
unless prevented by sickness or out
of the county during the time of list
ing. Not knowing the time of list-ing
is no excuse. And all owners of real
estate might do their tenants who
cannot read or take a newspaper, a
great favor by making their returns
or telling them the time of listing,
and that if they fail to make their re
turns in time that the valuation has
to be increased fifty per cent. unless
they have a good excuse.
The assessing and collecting of tax
es is all done now in the same year,
and we have to aggregate the number
and value of all the horses, cattle,
mules, &c., -a well as the acres of
land, lots and buildings and their val
ue, that there is in th-ecnit-, and
have same on file in the Comptroller
General's office by the thirtieth day
of June each year. And from that
time to the first day of October each
year the auditor's and treasurer's du
plicate has to be completed and an
abstract of the work in the Comp
troller's office by that time, which
will show at a glance that the audit
or has no time to take in returns, or
do anything else much, between the
first day of March and the first day
of October each year, but work on the
books and blanks. Ther-efore hope
that all taxpayers will do us the favor
of making their returns in time.
