Sin KxiciiiT Tiios. Siuuti.KY, of Louis

Templar of Kentucky, having divided
the State into military districts has'
appointed grand of lire rs to inspect j
tlie various eouimaiuleries. Grand Sword J
Bearer T. J. Glenn, of Carlisle, has beon I
delegated to inspect Maysville
dory, No. 10, ami is expected to be hero !
at the next regular conclave which will
be held on the tourlh Monday in April,
at which time all members are ordered
to bo present in full uniform.
Ax examination of the records at the
County Clerk's Office shows (hut the
county doliquent tax list for 1882, which
includes assessments of the effects of persons
who have moved away, and orrors
made in assessing, amounts to $117,025.
The amount of property overlooked
by the assessors and Htibsequently
listed by tho sheriffs aggregates $218,-315.
Tho latter item is n most surprising
one but it is nevertheless a correct
Btatomont. Tho number of persona
in tho county outside of MayBvillo who
have not paid a poll tax for tho paBt year
is 1,238; of this number 750 aro whites
and, 438 colored. Tli'q total 1b raorp thon

The President Can Begin It.
The New York Sun says: Tlie late
Republican Congress broke all the promises
of party orators and journals to reduce
expenditures, whereby the load of
taxation might be lightened. On the
contrary, oflires were multiplied and
salaries were increased, in the first case
to enlarge patronage, and in the second
instance to serve pattisan favorites.
Tho President recommended urgently
that all internal revenue taxes except
those on spirits fchould be repealed. Mr.
Kelley, Chairman of the Ways and Means
voluntarily pledged himself to go even
further than the President had proposed,
and to extinguish the whole system.
Tho receipts from internal revenue for
tho ln,st fiscal year aggregated $140,523,-
'273.72. The recipts from spirits were
$G0,873,40S.18. According to tho President's
proposition, seventy millions of
taxes would have been cut oiT in round
numbers at one swoop. With that wise
reduction, there would have been no excuse
for tho largo army of partisans now
maintained principally to organize the
political nv.ich'rn'ery for elections.
The expense of collection for the last
fiscal year was '$o,107,ISl.lS. Of this
enormous sum $4,512,852 went, for salaries,
mainly, to nliout four thousand
of dill'erent degrees. At the late
session Congress reduced the taxes on
banks, perfumery, patent medicines,
and tobaco about forty millions of dollars.
But not a man of tho partisan army
of intern. d revenue spies, informers, and
politicians was disturbed by the act of
There are one hundred and twenty-six
Collectors of Internal Kevenue, who receive
salaries aggregating $3 000 each.
Tho IIoue of "Representatives proposed
to reduce the number to eighty Collectors,
but the bill failed to becomo a law.
It'is, however, within tho power of the
President, under the existing act, to carry
out tlie will of the House, and to make
this reduction.' or even a larger one. He

The Wheat Crops.
Reports from 43 points in the wheat
bi'lt of Illinois indicate that the injury
from the Hessian lly and the cold weather
will afiect nearly 25 percent, of the whole
crop. The St. Louis Post-Despatch"
publishes reports of the condition of the
winter wheat in more than 200 counties
of Illinois. Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee,
Kansas, Missouri and Texas. " In Missouri
and Kansas the condition is good.
Tho acreage is fully equal to hist year, and
the damage no greater than usual at this
time of voar. Tennessee and Illinois give
fair reports, but Kentuoky and Indiana,
especially the latter, show considerable
damage. From Texas reports are meagre,
but thoso received aro good. It is learned
from other sources that the condition i.s
generally good, with a full crop. Tlie reports
also show that a very largo amount
of last year's corn, crop still remains in
the above named States." The delegates
present at the State Millers' Association,
in session at Topeka, Kansas, say the
wheat prospect in that State is very favorable,
and with good weather a yield
of thirty or forty millions of bushels may
Compliments to tlie Soldiers.
Tho Grayson News has the following ;
The soldiers composing this detail have
made many friendsin G ray son since their
sojourn hero, and have, by their manly
and gentlemanly conduct, entitled themselves
to the respect and good will of all
fairmindcd people. Whilst it is true that
the people of this place have shown them
many acts, of kindness, it i3 but just to
sav that thoy have shown their appreciation
of these favors by their good demeanor.
Having been hero so long we had begun
to look upon them as a home institution,
and we shall miss them now that
they they aro gone. . While the people of
Carter were opposed to the sending of
troops here at all, during the trial of the
poor wretches who caused all this
they lrive realized the fact that
their coming was no affair of their's, but
simply in obedience to the orders of those
who bad them under command, and that
their object was simply to protect the
majestv of the law and seo that it was
properly carried out, and wo feel safe in
saying that there is no citizen of Carter
county but what iB ready to endorse tho
above sentiment while at the same time
none more than wo regret tho necessity
of bring troops here. Yet, in a financial
point of view, the coming of the troops
was a great advantage to tho people of
Grayson and Carter county. Many hundreds
of dollars wore spent by them hero
among all classeB of business men, trade
boing lively in all departments.
Nothing whatever occurred to render
tho BoldierB presence obnoxious to citizens,
bo far as has been heard, and while
the. nxnnnRft in tho fltnto wnn considera
ble, to the pooplo of Carter it was not a
curno at any rate. I

A IM'gr Wlilps a Hear.
When Dr. V. M. Clark lived with his
family in tho Sixth District of Davidson
County, ho owned a small rat doj, an
English terrier, nauicd.hiok. Jack win
a. remarkable dop. Cn one occasion ho
killed one huiulrcd rats, and when ho
came out of the pit was hardly recognized
by his friends. Hid ears were
gone, and his logs and tin oat were as
raw ius a pioee of tin ookod beef liver
liutlie killed tho rata, and won a wager.
On another occasion Jack had a light
with it coon and came out vic'orioua,
killing the coon in the third round, lie
had numerous lights with lighting dog.s
lmieh and older than himself, but
he ahvas oamo out victorious. His
manner of lighting a dog was to watch
his chances and seize him by one of his
ears. Once his teeth were fastened
here, tliero was no getting him louse
until his antagonist squealed enough
and .started on ti dead run for home with
h s tail stored safe.y away between h s
leg. Whenever this would happen
Jack would et up on hig onomy and
wh no lor other enemies to o; nipier.
Hut .lack's eh of tr.umph was when
ho whipped a bear. A neighbor of Dr.
Clark owned a pot bear of ordinary size
One day whilo visiting his neighbor,
Jack and tho bear foP out. and oaoh
squared himself for a fight, Jitok held
himself oil' until ho found an opnorttmiiy
to catch li'm bv the car, a''U thou lib
wont in .lack was a great jumper. In
tli s instance he made his greatest leap
and landed on the back of his enemy.

f..ul insitrto This slmrn teeth for all thoy
ere worth. Tho bear fought with
kpirX and made igorous oflbrts io.end
luck to grass, but all in vain. That
dog would not lot go. Finally tho boar,
almost exhausted, gavo up in despair,
and as pla. n as a bear can speak acknowledged
his do'e'it. It requ red
o.er. man on the pbieo to pull .lack oil',
and it i.s believed ho would have killed
the bear it le t alone. Nttslwtilc llunncr.
