The Splendid Enthusiasm
Manifested at the Chamber of Commerce dinner on
last Tuesday night was indeed an inspiration, and it
la just such getting together that counts. Nothing
can be accomplished without enthusiasm, and the
man or woman who does not try to save money will
never have any. This bank is the ideal place or the
care-taking of savings for the old and young; and
mtore than that, we will help to acquire a home for
all who try to advance their condition. Every head
of the family should be an owner instead of renter.
Our plan Is the most liberal, and an inquiry will cost
you nothing. Our officers and directors are always
ready to give you their advice, based upon long experi?
ence. Postponement will not do; the time is now; the
opportunity is with you.
One Dollar starts an account.
Drafts on all parts of the world.

Travelers' Cheques issued, good anywhere.

I Smasher Swore as He Waded

> The marble apace in front of UM
d?sk at the Jefferson Hotel last night
looked like nothing so mucn as a
chop-suey house after a long distance
rice eating match in which the Olympic
Champion and th-s illustrious Fung
Fooe got mad an4 threw the contents
of their rice bow.e at each other. The
whatfor and whyfore of the accumu?
lation of rice In front of William Poin
dexter 0,uale was the arrival at the

and quite obviously married people.
Along about b o'clock the head bag?

It got to be a betting proposition
before th<? evening was over, and an

ered in the lobby to watch the studied

County Returns Show Up Well
in Comparison With Other
Virginia Counties.
Those Listed fur Taxation As- j
?as?ed Higher Than Gov?
ernment Figure
Abstracts of the tax returns of all
counties and cities In Virginia, which
have ben compiled by .State Auditor
C. Lee Moore, show that the entire
amount of money on dvvoait with
bankwand individuals, wfltch residents
of Henrico County detiar^rl tor taxa?
tion on February, last, was $102,49S
If this sum were divided between UM
St,e31 inhabitants of the county, euch
one would receive a littlo more tnsn
There are no banking Institutions
lm the county, and It is probable Jhat
most of its residents pla?.?- their funds
In Richmond banKs, ar&eee total de
iiosits on February Is amounted to
Ili.T 72.4'J?.7?. The amount <<l money
on deposit declared by Richmond peo?
ple was $749.315. The discrepancy Is
not so great as might seem, because
certsin classes of funds are exempt '
from taxation, or listed under anotner j
head. ?
The aggregate of the 113 incomes In
Henri<-o Codnty. reported to exceed $'-',
000. was $554,845. The proportion ot
Income taxpayers was considerably j
larger then that of the entire State
One person out of 207 received an in?
come above the exemption limit in
Henrico County, while the ratio of the
.-t?te was one out of 576.
Aa te Wateaes and Plate.
According to the tigu.es. one person
out of ever}- nineteen Is able to tell
the timo of day without having to In- I
quire of his neighbor. In all. 1,243
watches were declared In Henrico.
Omitting timepieces, which are listed
separately, the total value of all gold j
and silver plate, together with all'
jewelry was given In at $58,949. This
would allow each person to own
jewelry worth about $2.40, Including
the knives and forks with which he'
eats his three meals s day.
By allowing five persons to each
family, as Is the rule In such estimates,
the average value of each family's
household belongings approximates
$119.50. The total value of the furni?
ture returned was $560.291. and the'
number of families obtained by di-!
viding 23.437 by five is 4.687. j
Books and pictures are not Included
in the totals tor furniture. The en- j
tire assessed value of these articles
Is $1S,97S, an allowance of leas than
$1 for each resident of the county.
In his letter to the circuit Judges.
Vfr. Moors calls especial attention to
'he returns made on carriages, wagons,
?utonfoblles, and other vehicles. A to.
ml of 3.007 vehicles of all classes was
reported with a valuation of $120,746,
?nd an average value of $40.16 each.
Mr. Moore says the price of auto?
mobiles ranges from $350 upwards.
Sheep Rated High. {
A comparison of the values returned
I on sheep, hogs, cattle, and horses In
Henrico County shows that In many
?nstances these animals are valued
more highly than In other counties of
:he State. In company with the coun?
ties of James City and Southhamptoa.
?ienrlco enjoys the distinction <?f show?
ing a higher average valuation of
certain classes of live stock, than is
shown for the same counties, in the,
Cnited States census of 1910. j
In 1910 the census takers aacer
talned that the average valuation of
sheep In Henrico County was $4.10.
while the 378 sheep listed for tax-1
atlon this year were estimated on the
average to be worth $4.33. so that
Henrico sheep owners pay taxes on a
higher valuation than they furnished i
the government two years ago. Sheep
have increased In va.ue since 1910, {
however, and It is probable that the |
rise In price about compensates tor ]
the added assessments.
The average resident of the county
has the sum of about twenty-one cento;
Invested fr. firearms, according *> the;
returns on those articles.
The value of ail guns, rifles and pis
to is reported is fixed at $6.036. which
allows each family less than one doi- 1

The special grand Jury which has I
been inquiring Into the tax returns
of Henrico County will reassemble on
November, for the purpose receiving or!
rejecting corrections on individual *s- j
sessments. The citizens of the county
have beer, ava'ling themselves of the
opportunity offered to make their list?
ings right, since the Jury adjourn-si on
Monday. j
The stream of information seekere
to the offlcee of J. A. Leach and W. B.
Frayser. commissioners of the revenue,
has been steady since the announce?
ment of MM grand Jury that citizens
might correct theft returns Other i
officers of the county have been sub- I
Jected to numerous questions as to the
meaning of the inquiry and the na- ;
tnre of ?h? laws.
The complexity of the taxation sys- j
tern 4r. Virsinla. as JJn other States,
makes M difficult te arrive at a just
anoint for individual assessment*, anl
the universal opinion of county officials
is that mm taxpayer desires to def rau 1
the conntv of Its Just revenue, hut that ?
anv inequalities that may exist in the
original returns hare arisen fr^m
Ignorance of the law.

tion of Plasia*at Rosewell Page, of the

At this meeting It is expected the

iny Kiver bottoms will be gono into
thoroughly and the details of the law
fully ascertained.
The following day. at Murphy's Hotel,
a meeting of ihe Cnickahominy Drain?
age Association will be held. The ac?
tual work will then be taken up.
surveys of the area proposed to be
reclaimed were made some months ago
by parties of engineers representing,
the Drainage Bureau of the United;
Stales Department of Agriculture. The I
result Indicated large boundaries of
overflowed land whica can be drained
and made valuable farming property, j
If the property-holders will agree to
the plan as laid down in the law. con?
tracts will be let fcr the actual work.
Bonds will be Issued to pay for it, ana
these will be repaid by the taxpayers
in annual Instalments, chargeable like
taxes. The land stands good for the j
