work. I went to a drutr store and the
druggist recommended me to try Cham
berlain's fain Halm. 1 tried It. and one-
half of a 60-cent bottle cured me entirely.

the life of man can be prolonged man

The tax roll tor 1808 Is now closed and
the sheriffs will begin copying the de
linquent roll at once. On the original
roll, including sheriff's assessments,
there was a total to be collected of 42-
1(12.12, of which, up to June 20, $34
441.28 had been collected, leaving a de
linquency or 7,7iu.s4. mere win oe
no credits made on the roll until after
the delinquent roll haa been copied, but
persons desiring to pay their tax need
defer the matter no loneor on that ac
count, because the money will be re
ceived and receipted for. Hereafter
when taxes are paid, the a-per-cent
penalty will lie added. The delinquent
roll must be prepared for tho county
court when it convenes in July, and
that body will order final action in the
matter. It is more than likely that at
least two-thirds of the amount now de
linquent will be paid in before the roll
is advertised, as after that time addi
tional costs will be made. The payment
ot taxes this year has been very satisfac
tory, resulting iu the county paying oft"
about $30,000 of its debt since laat year.
