The board having met for the examina

The board proceeded to the further ex

Reports ot A. J. Alden, treasurer, Ac, on
the road fund and of back taxes for the
year 187G and previous years collected,
were presented nnd examined, said road re
port showing a balance on hand of $184.00,
both of which were, on motion, approved,
and the cancelled orders destroyed by
A petition from W. Nicholson was pre
sented showing that a clerical error had
been made in copying the assessment on
lot 9 block 71, of the city of Cairo, and
asking that abatement he 'made therefor,
and the board being sufficiently advised
touching the same. It was ordered by the
board that said abatement be made and tho
collector is hereby authorized to receive
taxes on said lot for the year 1878 passed
upon tho assessment of '1379, which appears
to bo the assessment intended to have been
made for 1873 by the assessor.
The bill of A. J. Alden, County Treasurer
and Assessor for making assessment of
1879, etc., was presented, and inasmuch as
the portion of the taxes of 1873 set apart
for the payment of the Treasurer and As
sessor would admit of being legally drawn
upon to the amount of $430.00.
It wa9 thereupon ordered that the said
sum of $430.00 be allowed on account of
said bill and that a warrant for said
amount so allowed be drawn against the
taxes of 1878 payable to the said A. J. Al
The Board after hearing all objections to
the assessment of tho year 1879, and after
making such corrections as appeared just,
in cases where complaints .were made, it
was ordered that tho said assessment of
real and personal property within
the county of Alexander, for the year 1379,
as shown by the assessment books for that
year, and as revised and corrected by this
board, be, and the samo is hereby con

THREE MEN'S BLOOD A FIENDISH
Red-handed crime stalks throughout the
entire country north and south, east and
west. The ordinary shooting affair, and
the assault with intent to kill, arc but deeds
of playfulness compared to the following
sickening deed of blood.'
A correspondent of the Fort Smith Inde
pendent, writes from Black Jack, Scott
county, under dateot July 18, oays:
"Our quiet community was startled last
night by one ot the most horrid crimes ever
committed in the history of this part of tho
countrv. Hiram Baructt and his two sons.
William and Azz, tenants upon -tho farm of
J. B. Steward, were yesterday evening
plowing in' their cotton field. Near
6unset Steward came into the fie'ld and rais
ed a row with them without any known
cause or provocation, and before they were
aware of his fiendish intentions he made a
rush uron William Earnctt, plunrinff a
knife iuto his breast; then, with the fury of
a demon, turned young Azz Bar
nett, driving his knife in
his side near the heart; he then rushed
upon the old man, inflicting a wound upon
his back sixteen inches in length. As the
old man turned around ho cut him across
the stomach, letting out his bowels and a
considerable portion of his liver. Steward
then dropped his knife, ran off, and is now
at large. Barndttes are old
citizens of this county, aud
have always borne the character of quiet,
peaceable and law-abiding men. The civil
officers of this, Tomliuson township, with
strong possecs, are scouririg' tllfi country in
search ot Steward, and it is to bo hopad
that their laudable efforts may be success
