" " 5... ..................... 4.
" 10 "................ 4.
"' 11 "................ 4.
The following resolution was ah:
Re.sotred. That the laud withini to
miles of New berry Court House hea
sessed at t$9 per acre and that the lat
within one mile of Prosperity be a
sessed at87 peraere, andl that the chai
man of the Township Board of Asse
so:s inform the Auditor who are ti
owners of said lands.
The Board decided to make
change in the returns of personal pro
erty. The valuation of p)ersonlal pro
erty therefore stands just as left by t i
Township Boards of Assessors.
The valuation of real estate in ti
towns of Newberry and Prosperity
unchanged and stands just as giveni
by the owners.
It seems to us that the Board has y
a very low valuation on the real esta
in the various townships-a great de
lower than any land could be puV
chased in Newv berry County.
At the rate per acre placed upon tl
land in the county the assessment
the real estate in the towns of Pi
perity and New berry will be nearly
quite as much as the valuation of
.the other land ini the county. WVe w
have more to say of this again.

The particulars of this sad death,
we got them from ('apt. Boozer hin

that medical skill could devise, but
his efforts were futile.
She seemed to suffer untold agoni
