Time for Paying Taxes
Tho time for paying taxes for
tho past year was out on tho first
day of this January. At that
time according to tho laws of tho
state a penalty of one percent was
imposed on all who remained un
paid. On the first of February a
penalty of two percent was impos
ed and still many remain unpaid.
Thc penalty increases every month
and thc longer one waits the more
the taxes will bo.
It was stated in thc Treasurer's
r,y oilice thc other day that a number
luid us yet neglected to pay their
taxes. This is accounted for in
various ways, Oin1 reason given
is that several people, notably the i
cotton holders, wanted to hold
their crops and they figured thal it
iy'- would bc elie!.per tu pay this pen
alty than borrow money. Anoth
er, ol' course, is that thc matter
has just slipped tho attention of
some of them, while othol'S still
have simply not paid because they
were not minded to.
In thc ellice of thc county audit
or returns are being made for
this coming year, lt is slated that
thc returns arc being made slowly
and that people arc taking their
own time and consulting their own
pleasure. It is well to recall that
thc 50 per cent penalty goes on
after thc ??Lh February. That is
/ ? if a man has $100 worth of pro
perty ard neglects to make his re
turns until after thc 20th of this
month then he will bc taxed on
$150 worth of property, This is
the fifty lier cent penalty and bow
In talking over thc matter it was
learned that thc people of Beri
nettsvillc are more behind in mak
ing their returns than any other
place in the county. They are be
hind in making their returns and
behind in paying their taxes. It
is not known what the cause is un
less it is thc spirit of indifference.
It may bc that people feel that
they are right here on the spot and
can make their returns any day.
Thc only trouble is that thc day
which they choose might lie after
the '20th ol' this month and then
thc trouble will conic.

LADIES NOT DISCOURAGED
Are at Work to Build Up Library
Destroyed by Fire.
Tho nucleus of tho Twentieth
Century Club library was a little
circulating library of a dozen
books, belonging to thc Club-mem
bers. After a year, it was decid
ed to expand this into a public li
brary and tho Twentieth Century
Club Library was formally open
ed in October 1902 with nearly
one hundred books. At the time
of thc lire thc library contained
nearly 900 books, among them
some valuable Art Folios and old
boohs that cannot bi1 duplicated.
In spite of this great, loss, tho Li
brary Committee ol' Thc Twenti
eth (Mub. is not discouraged but is
resolved that in a short time the
Library will bc oven larger, more
completo and more attractive than
before tho lire. Thc committee
desires tho co-operation of thc
public in building up thc Library.
Let every citizen become a mem
ber of tho library. Thc subscrip
tion price is only $1,00 a yeal
less than thc price ol' a single book
-which entitles thc subscriber to
take out. a book twice a week.
Thc library is opon on Thursday
mornings and Monday afternoons,
(?iven below is a list of thc books,
