ROYAL BAKING POWDER CO., NEW YORK,

THE COUNTY HOME.
Does Newberry Claim
Believed that l'art of Laurens Is As
sessed for Taxation in Another
To His Honor D. A. Townsend, Presid
ing Judge at tho January Term of
Court of General Sessions, A. D. 1004.
The Grand Jury beg to submit the
following as their final Presentment
for this Term:
1. Wo have passed on all Bills hand
ed us by tho Solicitor.
2. We recommend that the recom
mendations heretofore recommondod
hy the Grand Jury us the repairs in the
Offices of tho Auditor and Treasurer
be made as early as is convenient.
3. We recommend that the ceiling
in tho County Jail be repaired and
made more secure. Also, that a new
dining room be built. We also recom
mend that a new stable be built nearer
4. We recommend that the waste
pipe loading from the water spigot in
the Court House, be continued to a
more appropriate plaoe than where it
6. We also recommend that repairs
be made in the Court Room, such as
re-plastering, putting in electric lights
and that now blinds be put on the win
dows of the Offices and other euch ro
pain as are necessary.
6. Tho attention of the Grand Jury
was called to a certain nrticle publish
ed in the Clinton Chronicle, Dec. 10;h,
1003, which contained an article writ
ten by Thomas C. Scott, of Clinton, in
which he exaggerated very much the
state of affairs existing at the County
Home. Our committee visited the
Home and report that the Houses are'
in very good repair and well furnished,
the inin seem cheerful and well
cared for. The Keeper, Miss Jane
Sturm:?, deserves much praise for her
management and other valuable ser
vices rendered tho County Homo.
7. It has beea reported to us that
certain lands lying in Laurens County
on the old Nlnotysix road, near tho
Newberry line, are being assessed in
Newberry County and tho taxes being
paid in said County. We recommend
that proper authorities investigate the
same and adjust the matter at onoe.
8i Our Committee visited the County
Offices and report the same neatly kept.
Also, bag leave to submit that we ex
amined the records, documents, etc., in
Clerk of Court's office and find them in
excellent condition and distributed in
their various proper plac2S.
In conclusion, we desire to thank
your Honor, the Solicitor and other
officers of the Court for various courte
sies shown us during this session.
