County Treasurer Wheeler closed his
books on Wednesday, 11th, for the col
lection of taxes. The collections this year
have been very good.
The following summary shows the
amount collected and the balance yet dv.e:
Taxes charged, including Poll
Amount collected................... 43,106 71
Balance due...................S 987 86
Poll Tax charged....................$ 3,468 00
Collected ................................ 2,933 00
Balance due.....................8 635 00
From this showing it will be seen that
the deficiency to be collected outside of
the poll tax is only $352.86. This is very
small when it is probable that half of this
amount will be found to be double en

A Horse Stolen.
Messrs. John W. Cadden, John Ver
non, Jas. Cadden and George Rich, of
Aiken County, were in Newberry on
Monday in search of a stolen horse. For
'description see notice eklewhere. The
horse was stolen fronm Mr. Moseley's
stable Wednesday of last week. They
t--acked the horse in this direction some
distance .this side of Batesburg. The
horse was ridden by a negro boy about
18 or20 years old, without a saddle, and
from what these gentlemen cOuld
gather he was a negro boy who had but
recently come in their neighborhood and
claimed to have hailed from Newberry.
Mr. Moseley is a poor man and this is his
S only horse. Any information in regard
to the horse will be gladly received by
him. TIhe horse is nine or ten years
