The coutty board of equalization met
in the court house yesterday to go over
the returns taken by the Auditor. since
the change :n the law requirinz the
Auditor instead of the township asses
sors to receive the returns for taxa
ion, it was found there had been great
laxity or indifference about this impor
ant matter, so much so the board has
taken the responsibility to extend the
time fot'receivirg the returns without
penalty until Ma. .h 23rd, after which
time regardless of who it affects the
penalty of 50 per cent will be addd
upon all of those who neglect to coin
ply with the law. There is another
feature of individual returning of prop
erty, the tendency to lower an alreadv
very low valuation, which if allowed.
would mean an increase the tax levy;
it is absolutely impossible to figure
pon'the income of the county if the
assessed valuation is permitted to be
loered at the whim of individuals
who hav6 a craving to escape taxation.
If the county board-will do its full duty
at its next meeting it will enforce the
aw to-the letter by.punshing with the
penalty those who ignore the urgent
appeals to make returns, and to see to
tthat every man's ptropert.. is made
to bear its just proportion. of taxation.
Rev. B F. McLendon occ:upied the
ulpit at the Metnodist church last
Monday. night, he had for his audi
Lrs members of- all of the denomina
ions and creeds in the town, and many
ere present from the country. The
burch was packed to i:s capacity, and
frovr one hour the preacher kept
hs bearers spell bound, as it were. Mr.
icLendon shelled sin from every
ngle; it was a charge of verbal musk
try, with the occasional boom of 42
entimetre gunP. -His eloquence . at
imes was indeed marvelous, and his
ocabulary and faculty for word-paint
ig is of such magnetic power that it
attracts and holds the scoffer in a grip
f steel, and breaks the seal of preju.
ice from his mind, so much so, that
when he has heard this man, who is a
eritable orifiame for the cause of right
iving, and the kinship of man, visions
f the future state possess him, and,
>ecase~he is a child of nature,his heart
peals for a place in the haven this
mbassaaor.of God is striving with all
f the earnestness of his soul to direct
ankind. Mr. McLendon not only
irects the mind and heart to an ever
asting peace and joy, but he also
warns the way farer of the obstacles and
nares which are constantly -being
brown in his pathway. He especially
tresses the warning found in Matthew
which says, "Woe unto you, Scribes
and Pharisees, hypocrites' for ye are
ike unto whited sepulchres, which in
eed appear beautiful outward, but are
within full of dead men's bones, and of
all uncleanness." M r. McLendon's ser
on Monday night was one of the
blest he has yet preached, inspired
we have no doubt, by the magnificient
:ongregation that greeted his visit. We
would be glad to give our readers a
synopsis of what he did say, but it was
ipossible under his rapid fire to take
otes. at the same time enjoy his dra
natic outbursts of sacred- oratory. He
left for Bennettsville yesterday morn
ing, where he witl rest for a few days
ad then leave for an evangelistic tout

a few moments later. One bullet took
effect in Jones' leg and the other in
his abdomen, perforating the entrails
in a number of places. Mr. Julian H.

Italians from having the Virgin Mary
as an intercessor for them, and instead
have them like us to have Christ as
their intercessor. She spoke so touch
ingly of the blessings we have received
from God. Mrs. Scarborough insisted
that we observe the week of prayer,
by so doing we will be carried to> such
lofty iieighths She also urges us, if
we claim to be God's children, to so
live that the world will know it. After
