It Was Not Our M. K. Oh, what a hard time a newspaper man has in this world, where people are hard to please. If one of our citi zens goes abroad and does something that Causes the newspapers abroad to mention it, and the home paper fails to notice what they say, the accusation of not doing our duty is made. Then when we do make a note of what other people are saying about our citizens we at e jumped upon for noticing it.. Last Friday morning as we were sitting by the stove striving to get our t hinking apparattus i hawed out. -n ciently !o begin putting our mind in operation for Ihis issue of t he Tiies, ii walked Mr. M.

We were not dis aippointed, for as-soon as he caine within about the length of his stick he said, "Look here I vos in Georgiaa few days ago and anodder trummer look ed ie in my face and laughedI asked him vot ror you laugh, and he say hav Vou seen de Manning i paper ?

Vot I von t to know did you took dat inece from de Greenville News or diI you make it yourself ?" We informed Mr. Kalisky that we certainly clipped it from the Green ville News but we wrote the head for it. Straightening himself up and with his chest expanded he continued: "Do vou tin k dat dis M.

We replied that we knew nothing about the affair except what we saw in the Greenville News and knowing that he was in the up country we thought he was the subject of the article. "-Supject of the article, de tevil you say, vy shoult you tink I vos a sip ject. for you know vell, dat I vos no supject.

Perhaps there is not a country cler. gyman in all the United States whc does not shudder when his parisbion ers hint to hin that they are going tc ive him a "donation party."

Father Pierot, a parish priest, lives near Bernarac in France. He is an ideal cure andi is much beloved for his pure lire amd gen'ros deeis, not only by his own l.eople, but by all who knew hini. It chanced last year, at the time of an unusually line vintage, one of Fath. er Pierot's congreaition, in order to show his regard for the priest, sug gested to the winenakers roundabout that they secure a new barrel, place it in the cure's cCl lar. and that. it should be lilled by each one's pouring into it. a gallon of wine as a gratuity The suggestion was promptly ncted on, and the barrel was filled, After the wine harvest was over, the priest, to show his appreciation of the people's kindness, invited them to sup per at. his house, and, like the profes sional Anerican (onator, they accept ed at once. When all were seated, Father Pier ot said : "My friends, I am sure you are all are as anxious as I am, to know what the result will be, of blending so many different kinds of wines toget h er.

The-Auditor's office will be open from the second day of January, 1894, to the twentieth day' of February, 1894, to receive returns of real and - personal property for taxition in Clarendon county for the year 189.4, and for the convenience of tax-payers will have deputies at each of the places named below to receive re turns for the 'said year: Pinewood, Monday, January 8th, 1894. Packsville, Tuesday, January 9th, 1894. Panola, Wednesday,January 10th, 1894. David Levi's Store, Thursday, Jan- I ary 11th, 1894. Summerton, Friday, January 12th, L894. Brunson's.X Roads.

Barrows School Honse, Midway 7 township, Friday, Janmary 26th, 1894. A good way for the taxpayer who has much property to return, is to make a memorandum of theinumber of horses, cattle, mules, sheep and goats, hogs, watches, organs and pi anos, buggies, wagons and carriages, dogs, merchandise, machinery, mon evs, notes and accounts, (above in d'btedness) furniture, &c., which will save the taxpayer time, and enable the assessor to progress in the work. Taxpayers return what they own on the first day of January, 1894. All property, both real, and per- - sonal, must be returned this year. Assessors and taxpayers will enter the first given name of the taxpayer in full, also make a separate return ' for each party for the township the property is in, and where the tax payer owns realty, to insert the post office as'their place ofesidence, and those who only ftn personal prp erty, to give-tke party's .name wh.o owns the land they live on as their residence, which aids the taxpayer as well as the county treasurer in mak ing the collections and preventing errors. Every male citizen between the ages of twenty-one and fifty years on the first day of January, 1894, except those incapable of earning a support from being maimed,'or from other causes, shall be deemed taxable polls8. Air returns that are made after the twentieth day of February will have a penalty of 50 per cent. added there to, unless prevented by sickness or out of the county during the time of listing. Not knowing the time of listing is no excuse- And all owners of real estate, might do their tenants, who cannot read, or take a news paper, a great favor by making their returns or telling them the time of listing, and that if they fail to make their returns in time that the valua tion has to be increased 50 per cent. unless they have a good excuse. The assessing and collecting of taxes is all done now in the same year, and we have to aggregate the num ber and value of all the horses, cattle, mules, &c., as well as the acres of land, lots and buildings, and their value, that there is in the county, and have same on file in'the- Comp Itroller General's office by the;- thir-- -- tieth day of June each year. An'd from that time to the first day of Oc tober each year the auditor's and treasurer's duplicate has to be comn Ipleted and an abstract of the work in the Comptroller's office by that time, which will show at a glance that the auditor has no time to- take in returns or do anything else much, between the first day of March and the first day of October each year, but work on the books and blanks. Therefore I hope that all taxpayers w 11 do us the favor of making thei returns in time. J. ELBERT DAVIS, Auditor Clareundon County. . WM. BURMESTER & CO.
