The General Assembly has been in
session one week. and the time was
taken up in getting organized, appoint
ing committees and other necessary ad
juncts to the formation of a law making
bodv. There are many new men in
the'lower house. and most of them are
young men. just what will be done is
hard to forecast at this time. Of one
thing I feel sure. there will be no ex
tremie or sensational legislation. The
general feeling here, is to have a snort,
session. and if the late decision (: the
supreme court does not make it neces
sary for the repealing of much special
legislation, then I see no reason why
we can not finish in twerty live days.
So far nothing of local interest has
occurred. and the Senator has been ap
nointed on some very important com
mittees. that will keep him busy. In
the lower house Representative Rich
ardson was assigned to the following
committees: Accounts, Commerce and
Manufactures, enrolled Acts: Repre
sentative Woods on Federal relations
and Medical affairs: and Representa
tive Galluchat. commitee on claims:
all of these committees are important
and will give each of them work. In this
connection I will state that in last
weeks issue of THE TIMES, which by
the way was one that I feel exceeding
ly proud of. my reference to the legis
lative delegation meeting with the
county commissioners I stated that Rep
resentatives Richardson and Woods
disclaimed any knowledge of the ap
pointment of the new board, which was
correct. but I omitted to state that
Representative Galluchat was present
andl said that lie was a new member
and had not had an opportunity to in

sers was a matter for the Senator or
the deleitation. that he had dothing to
do with the recommendation, but at
the same time he had no objection to
thle gentlemen~l appointed. I mention
this. because it was not my purpose to
leave Mr. GAalluchat out of my report of

A great many of the people in the
States think all the trouble with the
Insurgents is over here in the Philip
pines, but it is all a mistake. Lieut.
Lewis (second Lieut. "L" Co.. Third
Infantry) went out yesterday with a de
tachment of ""F" and "L" Co. down the
river in bancos and about noon ran into
a band of Insurgents.. One man from
"F" Co. was killed instantly and two
men from "L" Co. were wounded be
fore they could get to the shore. The
two wounded men are getting on very
well today. This is the way it is all
over the islands every day in the year,
the Insurgents attack small bands of
soldiers. I have been so fortunate as
to not be in but one skirmish since
landing and hope it will be the only
one. We have been here in Malolos
ever since February 4th.
Malolos is about twenty-three miles
north of 31anila. on the railroad run
ning from Manila to Dagupan. This
road is only 123 miles in length. It is a
narrow gauge road and the locomotives

run at the rate of about twenty miles

tickets from the passengers passes

The Buddhists believe that happi
ness, Nirvana, consists in self efface
ment, oblivion. The young Buddhas
began life by sitting unsupported in
the air just after birth. Their motheru
attained Nirvana immediately, and
they, the Buddhas, reached Nirvana in
various queer ways.
One earnest Buddha, one of the earli
est of the long line, earned the "Nibbu
ta" as follows:
A hawk was about to devour a small
bird. Said the Buddha to the bird of
"I beseech thee, leave this little crea
ture in peace. I will give thee its
weight from my own flesh."
Down from heaven came a pair of
scales, and the transaction was accom
plished. The small bird sat on one side
of the scales, and the Buddha began
putting slices of his body into the other
side, while the bird of prey looked on
with an evil eye. As the Buddha carv
ed himself up the little bird seemed to
get heavier and heavier. The beam of
the scales did not move until the last
particle of the saint's body was put in
The Buddhists' legends do not tell
how the saint managedl to carve up his
last few fragments, but that is not im

Cobwebs and Cuts.
An old time remedy to stop blood
flowing from a cut is to put cobweb.
over it, but from recent discovery it ap
pears a dangerous thing to do. Some
time ago a woman fell and cut her
head, and when her friends hurried to
her assistance they found the blood
flowing from a deep gash. Cobwebs
were applied, and the bleeding quickly
stopped, but in a few days the woman
was taken with lockjaw.
A scientist declared there were lock
jaw germs in cobwebs, and that was
the way the woman contracted the dis
ease. lie has made quite a study of
the subject and says that in a handful
of cobwebs he found 61 different dis
ease germs. That being true, it is v-ery
easy to see how one could get not only
lockjaw, but many other dreadful dis
eases, as the cobweb is placed right on
an open wound and the germs can en
ter the blood. Cobwebs form in dark,
dirty places, and it is not to be won
dered that they gather germs. - Ex
The Log of a Ship.
A ship's log is an instrument for
measuring the rate at which the vessel
Is going' and consists of three parts
viz, the log chip, the log line and the
log glass. The principle is simply this:
A light substance thrown from the
vessel ceases to partake of the motion
of the vessel as soon as it strikes the
water and will be lcft behind on the
surface after a certain interval. If the
distance of the ship from this station
ary object be measured, the approxi
mate rate of sailing will be given.
The log chip is the float, the log line
is the measure of the distance, and the
log glass defines the interval of time.
In the old days the heaving of the log
required skill and watchfulness, but
since the patent log has come into use
no skill is required In finding the speed
of a vessel. It is regurlated by clock
work, and the number of knots the yes
sel sails per hour is recorded on the
dial without any hand touching it.

Your Head Aches To-day.
It is a small matter; but it ached two days
ago, and again a week ago. You are acquiring
a habit of headache. That must be stopped. The
trouble is with your liver. You want a mild lax
\ ative, and then a tonic to stimulate the appetite
and make the blood rich and pure.

Sumer, SC., January. 14. 1901.I
TO THE TINES OFFICE.
OFFICEF COUNTY AUI)ITOR.
Manning. S. C.. Dec. 26. 1900.
The Auditor's office will be open from
the first day of January, 1901. to the
twentieth day of February, 1901, tc
ceive returns of real estate and per
sonal property in Clarendon County for
the year 1901.
The Auditor will be at the following
places in person on the dates mentioned
to receive returns:
Wilson's, Thursday. January 17th,
Alcolu, Friday, January 18th, 1901.
W. M. Youmans'. Saturday, January
Saul's Store, Monday. January 21st.
New Zion, Tuesday, January 22d,
S. C. Turbeville's Store, Wednesday,
January 23rd, 1901.
J. F. McFaddin's Store, Thursday.
January 24th, 1901.
McIntosh's Store, Midway township,
Friday, January 25th. 1901.
Taxpayers return what they own en
the first day of January, 1901.
All real estate and personal property
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 prop
erty is in, and where the taxpayers
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 collections
and preventing errors.
Every male citizen between the ages
of twenty-one and sixty years on the
first day of January, 1901, except those
incapable of earning a support from
being maimed, or from other causes,
shall be deemed taxable polls. This
does not apply to Confederate soldiers
over fifty years of age.
All the returns that are made after
the twentieth day of February will have
a penalty of 50 per cent. added thereto,
unless out of the county during the
time of listing. Not knowing the time
of listing is no excuse.
The assessing and collecting of taxes
is all done now in the same year, and
we have to aggregate the number and
value of all the horses, cattle, mules,
etc., and their value that there is in
the county. 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 Octo
ber each year the Auditor and Treas
urer's duplicate has to be completed
and an abstract of the work in the
Comptroller's office by that time, which
will show at a glance that the Auditor
has no time to take in returns or do
anything else much, between the first
day of March and the first day of Octo
ber each year but work on the books
and blanks. Therefore I hope that all
taxpayers will do me the favor of mak
ing their returns in time.

Auditor Clarendon County.
