Great Jurist Has Gone to
THE STATE'S LOSS.
Man of Great Learning
and Highest Character.
He Had Been 111 for a Long Time and
the End was not Unexpected?His
Career on the Supreme Bench.
Ohiof Justico Henry Mclvar ot the
supreme court of South Carolina died
at his homo in Cheraw Monday after
noon, Jan. 12.
Judgo Mclver had been ill for many
mouths and it was known that he
could not long survive. Ho was 76
years old lat-t Sopte-uber. Two sous,
State Senator Edward Molver of Ches
terfield, and Mr. Thomas Mclver of
Charleston and one daughter, Mrs.
Lottie Mclver Watts, wife of Judge
Richard C. Watts, survive blra. His
wife, who was Miss Caroline Powe,
died a year or two ago. He graduated
at the S. C. College In 1840, and to that
institution he was a devoted friend
throughout his life, having been a
trustee since he has been on the su
premo bench. He was a member of
the Secession Convention, entered the
Confederate army aa a lieutenant and
was promoted to captain. He was
elected associate justice in 1877 and be
como chief justico upon the death of
the lato Judge W. D. Simpson?
.Indue Mclver was ono of the ablest
lawyers and judges not only of South
Carolina but of the United States. Per
haps no living American Judgo has
written as many opinions, so long and
constant has been his work, and thoy
rank with thoso of tho proloundest ju
rists. Ho was moreover a man of ex
alted purity, a devoted Christian and a
member of the Episcopal Church. In
every relation, public and private, his
life was blameless and his great tal
ents and industry he gave to his state
and hin poople, shirking no duty and
doing hia part with oredit whenever
. his services were neoded.

THE NEWS OF LISBON.
Fine Teacher and What He Has Boue
for the School.
The old year has gone and tho new is
at hand. Those that are here to wit
ness the now yoar ought to be very
thankful indeed as they have much to
be thankful for. Many new and old
landmarks have been erased from ex
istence since the old year of 1002, much
to sorrows of many of us. Now Mr.
Editor,we want to say, success to all of
your readers before we go further. We
all ought to commence the new year
with greater determination than ever
to change our course in many ways
that may be bone?tted by so doing.
We have had a very nlco Christmas
and truly hope that all can say the
Our people iu this community are
saying less about hard times than they
have for years.
While there has beon a great deal of
moving In this vicinity all of our peo
ple seem to have plenty of hands to
commence another crop. ? '
More grain, both wheat and oats,
have been sown than for years.
Prof. T. J. Pyles of the Lisbon High
School has mado many improvements
in and around the echool building.
When ho took charge of this school
twelve months ago the yard was full of
bormuda grass and is yet, but you ought
to soe the nice walks that the Professor
and children have made. Besides they
have nice water oaks set out in rows
whioh adds very much to the school
building. But the greatest attraction
of all is inside of the building. First
the Professor bought out of his own
pooket wall paper and papered the
walls. Then he bought nice plotures
and plaoed them around in the school
building. Prof. Pyles is beyond any
doubt the finest teaoher that over came
to this place and the patrons all are
free to admit it.

It will save muoh time to taxpayers,
also greatly facilitate tho work of tho
Assessor, if every person before leav
ing home will make out a complete list
of every Item of personal property in !
the following order: Horses, cattle,
mules, sheeps and goats, hogs, organs |
and pianos, watches, wagons and car
riages, dogs, merchandise, machinery
and engines, moneys, notes and ac
counts above indebtedness and all oth
er property, including household.
It is always required that tho Audi
tor get the first given name of the tax
payer in full.
Under the head of place of residence
on tax return, give the township.

twenty-one and sixty years, on the

* After the 20th day of February next |
ufty per cent, penalty will be atttaohed

In every community there are per
sons who cannot read or that do not
tako a newspaper. Those more fortu
nate may do suoh persons a great favor
by telling them of the time to make re
turns or by returning for them.
The assessing and collecting taxes is
I done in the same year, and we have to
aggregate the number and value of all
horseB, mules, cattle, and other pieces
of personal property as well as the
acres of land, lots and buildings and
their value that there are in this
country, and have the same on file in
the Comptroller General's office by the
30th of June of each year, and from
that time to the first day of October
the Auditor's and Treasurer's duplicate
have to be completed and an abstract
of the work in the Comptroller Gen-,
eral's office by that time, wbloh will
show at a glance that the Auditor has
no time to take returns, or anything
else much, between the 1st of October,
but work on the books and the blanks.
We hope, therefore, that all taxpayers
will make their returns in time.
