in the court house last Friday. The
attendance was good, about forty

sub-alliauces were present. The re

county is hohling its own!. After
transacting the regular quarterly busi
ness, Hon. J. E. Pet tigtew, of Florence,
was introduced. He spoke on alliance
matters entirely. His spech~l was full
of good sound doctrine and advice.
There was nothing in his speech but
what the pubiic could have heard,
and we think his address wvould have
been well received by those who are
not members of the order as his re

PACKSvILLE, Jan. 21.-The drana
Friday eveiiing brought out a large
crowd. All enjoyed the play very
much, inldeed. 'Nomen has heard
mianv and various remarks pro et
coni:'but when we remember that it
is our own talent and ability, or
rather the talent and ability of the
bovs and girls who have grown up
around here, we are agreeably sur
prised. We are surprised
at the amount of theatrical
talent displayed by all. The play
would have done justice to a much
larger town than ours. The net pro
ceeds for the evening was $20. This
play will be given at Jordan next
Frilay evening, so we are imformed.
Packsville is still growing. Several
more new houses have been planned
since last week, and some of them are
being put up. Some one said one day
last week that it was necessary to
come to Packsville every evening in
order to keep up witi the times and
the growth of our town. If you are
looking abort for a place to invest
your monev come to "acksvil'e.
A newspaper has been spoken of
for this town, and verily we believe
that within two yea ' fron now we
will have a flourishing paper here.
Sheriff D. J. Bradhain was in our
town Saturday to see his son, Mr.
Judson Bradham, who has charge of
the business of Mr. D. M. Bradhaa
at this place.
Mr. T. P. Cuttino, one of our popu
lar young men, has accepted a posi
tion with Mr. D. M. Bradhai.
Mr. J. M. Bradhani, the new post
iaster, is beginning to get acquaint
ed with the onerous duties that de
volve upon him as postmaster, but he
is equal to the emergency and will
sooni master all the intricate prob
lenis relative to it. lie is at present
chief dispenser of duns and circulars.
Nomen extends his paw to Mr.
Louis Appelt as a token of his (No
men's) sympathy and hearty co-opera
tion on his (Appelt) assuming the
tripod. We would say congratulate
where it is sympathy and hearty co
operation, but it is our honest opinion
that an editor needs the sympathy
and- co-operation of the people before
he can mould public sentiment or
elevate the people whom he wishes to
benefit. The Times is the best county
paper in South Carolina, having al
ways been true to the best interest of
the people. and Nomen believes that
under Mr. Anpelt it will continue at
its present high standard.
Mliss Mamie White has returned to

Rev. C. W. Creighton preached in
the academy at this place Sunday
evening. His sermon was good. He
will be here again the third Sunday.
It is his purpose to organize a Sun
day school in connection with the
ethodist church here. We would
be glad to see a large crowd out on the
third Sunday afternoon.
Why is it, that the rates are so
much higher on the C. S. & N. R. R.,
than on the Central ?- The freight on
a car-load of salt from Sumter to
Packsville a distance of 12 miles. is
more than the value of the salt. The
road charges Mr. D. M. Bradham
twelve dollars freight on five thousand
feet of lumber from here to Tindals.
Why is this ? We thought the com
mission had established minimum
rates and equal rates on a!l roads. If
the commission has established rates
for all the roads, why is it not in ef
feet on the C. S. & N. We would be
lad if the proper authorities would
irrange it so that lumber could be
hippedf rom here without tbe ship
pers having to pay as much as he gets
r the lumber on the market
he charges are unreasonable and
~xorbitant, and. the commission
hould take steps to have them re
luced at once. Mr. Bradham will
ilot move his large saw mill here un
il lie gets low freight rates, and un
ess the road makes a reduction
acksville will lose considerable by.

A good wa' for the. taxpayer-w

make amemorandum of the~humber
of horses, cattle, mules, sheep and
goats, hocgs, watches, organs and pi-:
anos, buggiest wagons and carriages,
dogs, merchandise, machinery, mon
eys, notes and accounts, (above in
debtedness) furniture, &c., which will
save the taxpayer time, and enable
the assessor to progress in the work.
Taxpayers return what they own
on the Erst day of January, 1894.
All property, both real and per
sonal, must be returned this year.
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 tax
payer owns realty, toinsert the post
ffice as'their place of residence, and
those who only own personal prop

Every male citizen between the.
tges.of twenty-one and fifty years on
he first day of January, 1894, except
hose incapable of earning a support
rom being maimed, or from other
~auses, shall be deemed taxable polls.
All returns that are made after the
wentieth day of February will have
.penalty of 50 per cent. added there
o, unless prevented by sickness or
>ut of the county during the time of
isting. Not knowing the time 'of
isting is no excuse. And all owners
>f real estate, might do their tenants,
wvho cannot read, or take a news
>aper, a great favor. by making their
eturns or telling them the time of
isting, and that if they fail to make
heir returns in time that the valua -_
ion has to be increased 50 per cent.
mnless they have a good excuse.
The as sessing and collecting of
axes is all done now in the same year,
bud we have to aggregate the num
er and value of all the horses, cattle,
nules, &c., as well as the acres of
and, lots and buildings, and their -
ralue, that there is in the county,
mud have same on file in the Comp
:roller General's office by the thir
ieth day of June each year. And
'rom that time to the first day of Oc- ~~
:ober each year the auditor's and'
:reasurer's duplicate has to be coim

n the Comiptroller's office by that
;ime., which will show at a glance
hat the auditor has no time to take
n returns ordo anything else much,
>etweenl the first day of March and~
he first day of October each year,

L'herefore I hope that all taxpayers
gill do us the favor of making their
-eturns in time.
