I am in the best health 1 have ever been. I can never praise
Cardui enough." It is the best tonic, for women.
Whether seriously sick, or simply weak, try Cardui.

CITIZEN Of PROPOSED NEW COUNTY
VOICES STRONG OPPOSITION TO IT
Col. T. J. Moore, of Moore's Writes Strong Letter to
Spartanbjurg Herald Pointing Out Fool-Heartedness
of Now County Movement.
! Editor of The Spartanburg Herald:
Having been cut off in the pro
posed county of Woodruff. I have
been led to Investigate the running
?Spenge? of counties, and the practi
cal effects upon the new county. In
my judgment, it is the most unbuai
Tess like proposition tnat could have
been propoaed. It proposes to lay
but a very poor county, poorer than
Spartanburg county was when it came
I out of the Confederate war, a county
in which the taxation will be enor
mous, if the same efficiency now pre
vailing is to be maintained; a county
that will start poor, and continue so
during the life time of those of us
now living, and probably our children
after us. It proposes to quit the
second wealthiest county in the state;
to cut loose from the city of Spartan
burg, which now pays nearly half
the taxes of the county, and 1b rap
Idly growing, and destined to be a
large and wealthy city; to take on
hand the larger part of the costly
bridges of the county, in fact, nearly
all of them; to build a courthouse,
jail, and other public buildings; to as
sume its share of the public debt?
$375.000; to keep up a large and ex
pensive road system, with many roads
to be laid out to the new courthouse.
Now, I want to show you the ab
surdity of the proposition. Surely the
promoters of the scheme have never
Investigated the matter fully, and
do not know what they are propos
ing to .saddle themselves and the bal
ance of us with.
Nov. to understand fully the ques
tion, as It Is going to take a very
large sum to run the county, let me
show- you what Spartanburg county
Is now doing?her assessed value and
rate of taxation, and compare it with
the proposed now country. Of course,
the amount of money that can be
raised depends on the assessed valua
tion and the rate of taxation, and
to raise a given amount the larger
the assessed valuation the less the
rate of taxation, and vice versa.
The county of Spartanburg is now
assessed at $ 10,000,000, and the rate
taxation for Btate and county pur
poses is 10 3-1 mills, which a little
figuring will show raises a fund of
$318,000. . Of this amount 0 3-4 mills
are for state purposes and 7 mills
for county purposes. Now the as
sessment of 7 mills for county pur
poses is divided as follows, viz.:
Ordinary county, ?' I-'- mills.
Bridges and permanent Improve
ments, 2 mills.
Road tax, 1 mill.
Sinking fund. 1 mill.
Commutation or road taxes in ad
This 7 mills assessment thon raises
$132,000 lor county purposes, of
which sum $20 per mile is used on
1,000 miles of roads and brides,
equivalent to $:!x,ooi) each year.
Now let us BOO how It would stand
with Hie new county If the same- rate
of taxation should prevail. The tax
able value of I he; new county would
he in I he- neighborhood of $3,000,000,
which I gel as follows, viz.: Woodruff
township, assessed value at present,
as obtainod from the county auditor,
is $1,200,450; Cross Anchor township,
$500,000; tin- balance of the county,
$1,300,000. Total $3,000,000,
Now supposing that the same ralS
of taxation will prevail, the 7 mills
for county purpose!.', to say nothing
Of state taxes, will raise $21.000, Now,
does I" look reasonable that a county
can be rut) on $21,000? I: will re
quire n -a !v that * t.n to ke< p up
the roads and bridges, for If Spar
tanburg county has 1,000 nilleK with
an area of H7S square miles, It Is
reasonable to suppose that the new
county of 100 square n.lles wir have
about one-half as much, or say, ahou:
950 miles. If $20 n mile shott'd be
expended as Is now done in Spartan-1
burg county It would take $10,000 to
keep up the roads and bridges, (is
weil as is now clone, leaving just $2,
000 on which to run the county. What
then about court expe-nses, pay ofj
ptlbllC Officers, the building of public
houses, as courthouse, Jail, poor
house, etc.? Why the courthouse at
Spartanburg mast have cost $?0,000
or $60,000; the jail half as much, and
then the pay of public officials. Just
think of it; Auditor, $2,000; school
commissioner, $1,000; sheriff, $2,600;
supervisor, $1,500; clerk, $720; cor
oner, $600; treasurer, $1,600; the oth
er officers being supported by fees.
ThlB pay of public officials is then
about one-half of the pitiful $21,000
raised by the new county. The court
expenses of Spartanburg county are
more than the new county would
raise in all.
The more I think about it *he more
preposterous it appears to be. Ke:
us take a view of the bridge ques
tion. It is proposed to saddle us
with nearly all the costly bridges In
the county. Here are some of them,
and what they cost, viz.:
Hill's bridge, on Tyger.$9,000
Burnt factory, on Tyger.3,000
Nesbitt'a bridge (Tyger.3,000
Otts Shoals (to build).2,000
Swltze- (S. Tyger).1,000
Anderson (S. Tyger) .1,000
With several others above that I
do not know about.
On Knoree river:
Bnoree, No. 2.2,000
BoSfde8 several others higher up
the Tyger and Knoree that I know
nothing about, to say nothing of the
innumerable smaller bridges over the
creoks, as Wards, Dutchman, Cane
Creek, the 'wo Fergusons, Jimmies
creek, Cedar Shoals, and I know
not how many more. Should we have
other Hoods as in 1903 and 1907 the
county would be bursted wide open.
They could not be replaced and re
sources of the county being too slim.
We would have to go back to pole
bridges and fords, as in Reviutionary
days. What in this world do the pro
moters of the sell..me ahout the town
of Woodruff mean by trying to saddle
us with all this expense?
I asked an expert, one versed In
running county affairs, roads and
bridges, how the now county could
keep up its roads and bridges, and his
reply was they simply can't do It
without enormous taxation, but will
have to go back to poor roads, pole
bridges, and fords as of old times. It
will be remembered the new county
will give up its Interest in 50 or 00
mules and a great deal of expensive
machinery, I would expect the road
by my house never to be worked
again excerpt with pick and shoved.
I thank the; Kord I live Immediately
on the line, and will likely have a
good road to Spartanburg.
Some one suggests that to keep up
the roads we will have to have a poll
tax of $?> or $7, as they do in the poor
and small counties of North Carolina
adjoining us, and my judgment is that
this will be> the outcome, and when
such a tax Is levied tennnts and fac
tory hands are not going to pay It,
but will move out across the line, and
then our farms will be- in a beautiful
shape- to pay the either excessive tax
One of the promotors of this scheme
actually told nie? that the new coun
ty couiei be run cheaper than was
now being elone. in Spartanburg coun
ty, and cltod me te> Cherokee county
as to what can bo done. Now, it
se-i-tiiH te> me- that any man of good
practlcatl coinmem semso ought to see
that, it will COSl more to run two
counties than one1, and as for Chero
kee COtinty, I was tedd by one who
knows what he was talking nbout
