The Chairmen of the Boards of Commissioners ot the various Coon ties through which the North Jaro Una Railroad runs, met at Raleigh last week, and pursuant to sectics 44 and 45 of the machinery act, laws of 1887, organized into a Board ot Assessors and Appraisers tor assess ing; the property ot said road for taxation. All ot the Counties ex cept Randolph and Orange were represented. A report of the property of the North Carolina Railroad was pre sented by Major John W. Graham, attorney for the road, sworn to by- Col. Thomas M. Holt, Presideut of tbe Company. The report was read and referred to a committee consist ing of Messrs. T. J. Sumner, J. P. Allison, F. A. Daniels and T. L Vail, with a request to report. At the evening session of the Board the committee made a report which was considered, and amended in some instances. As amended the leport i as follows : "We, your executive committee, to whom was referred the statement and exhibit of the North Carolina Railroad, tiled bv Col. Thomas M Holt, Piesideut, beg leave to report as follows : "We fix the value of the radroad track of the N. C. Railroad at $3, 106,800 rolliug stock at 200,000 ; other property as per list filed 8150, 000 value of franchises, 8226,200 ; money. on haud and on deposit, 16,- Sr,1 t' . slock owned by the Com anv a, d not embraced in sinking tnt.ii ftiQnon. total fc.'i 770 3M We 'fix' ihe value ot the capital stock, 40,000 shares, at S4.000.000, from which deduct 83,779,851.52; leaving 8220,048 48. To this last amount add rolling stockt 8-00,000, making 8420,048 48; deduct from this non resident shares and shares held by trustees ot sinking fund, 818,446,21, leaving 8402,202.27, which is the total tax valuation of the taxable properly of the road, equal to a lax value ot 81,778.08 per ruilo. The track per se, under the charter, is not taxable until ihe road shall be able to declare an annual dividend ot six per cent. It was represented that the road could not do this, and therefore the track was not assessed. The franchise of the toad has been assessed, as provided by law, by tbe Governor, State Treasurer and tAudilor, at 81,000 per mile, making the total lax valua tion 82,778.08 per mile, which will be the basis for collection of taxes by the different counties according J c0nlv . .. . 1. number of miiea in each The number of miles of road in each county is as follows : Wayne, 11 ; Johnston, 27; Wake, 26 ; Dur ham, 16; Orange, 18; Alamance, 21 ; Guilford, 32 ; Randolph, seven-tenths of a mile ; Davidson, 24.5 ; Rowan, 21 ; Cabarrus, It -Mecklenburg, 12 1 wlal number ot miles, 226 2 WE TELL YOU PLAINLY i't .l " ivegu.aior win rid you ot Dyspepsia, Headache, Lotiftipation, and Biliousnes.

V i . it u . t c . . . cvf) and w hen I could walk I had to go all bent over. JFinally. I went to Hot Springs, Ark., where I remain ed several weeks. I was benefitted and thought I was well, and came home. On my arrival home it de veloped again. I then took a course of S. S. S., using three dozen bottles. They thoroughly ured me, and from that day to this I have been perfectly free from rheumatism. I regard S. S S. as absolute in the cure of rhernatism, and a perfect blood purifier. I think it the best mediciue in the world, and if I can help it I never expect to use any other. It is a splendid general med icine, cleansing out the system, and thus getting at the root of most diseases. J. D. Carter. Treatise on Blood and Skin Dis eases mailed free.
