An opinion has been handed down by the U. S. court deciding that banks must pay local taxation the same as individuals are made to pay. What is known as the Hewitt law gave banks the right to pay 75 C2nts on the S100 in lieu of all other taxes. This law is pronounced unconstitutional and the biuks will now appeal to the supreme court It is believed the case will eventually jo against the Hanks, and if it should, it will close up many o the small-fry institutions in the state they being unable to pay the enor mous taxation asscssel against them. If the case finally goes against the banks, the two Lancaster institutions will have to pay a good sum into the local treasury, as the matter date back to 1SJ4. The Concert. Notwithstanding the fact that the proceeds were to be used in the noble cause of furnishing hymn books to the Lancaster soldiers, a very small audi- enc2 attended the entertafumcut giv en at the Court House Monday evening. Those who did go were highly repaid as a better program was never arran ged for a similar occasion. The sin ing of Misses Olivia Sweeney, Addie Burnside and Elisa Lusk was greatly enjoyed, as were also the recitations of Misses Alberta Anderson, Elcne Iliatt Lettie McRoberts and Edna Mason Miss May Hughes' piano solo was high ly complimented and was a rich treat to the audience. Although the piano used was a miserable one, Miss Hughes uccecded admirably in demonstrating the fact that she is one of the very best performers our people have ever had the pleasure of listening to. Miss Chastine MacGregor, who is the guest of Mrs. W. 11. Cook, kindly consented to sing and her solo and enchore were greatly appreciated and enjoyed. Mess G. Bright Swincbroad and Lew Walker delivered a few remarks atth opening and closing of the evening entertainment. They soared about the clouds, brushing all the cob-web; from the sky and putting a few extra touches on the moon and stars. The young ladies who planned the enter tainment are entitled to much praise for their work in so noble a cause, and wcregret exceedingly that so few Lancaster's people turned out to lend a helping hand to the brave boys who have gone to the front to fight their country.

Lancaster and Garrard county peo pic will b; glad to learn of the ap pointincnts just received by Captain Mike Salter and Tink Anderson to prominent positions in the array. Capt. Salter was made quarter-master for the first regiment, better known as the Louisville Legion. The Legion' regular quarter-master failed to pass the physical examination, and all ef forts to get him in proved in vain Friends of Capt Salter made a light and succeeded Saturday in lauding the appointment He will rank as a first lieutenant and recjive captain's pay, 150 per month. Capt Salte fought through the late war in the Confederate army and enjars a repu tation for gallantry and bravery. Tn IlEConn would rather see him get good berth than most any one, and w know the Legion men will soon form as strong ties for him as they had for their former quarter-master, McDon aid. Salter had secured the place of wagon-master for the second regiment and, at his resignation, A. Tink An derson, also of this city, was appointed to this place.' Tink will not h ive to be sworn into the service, but will have a number of men under him and draw S73 per month. He left for Chickamauga Tuesday and will enter upon his duties at once.

About a dozin members of the Lan caster company promised and swore they would send us a letter from Chickamauga, but so far not one line has been received- We presume that the real life of a soldier, which they are now experiencing, gives the boys about all they can do, consequently they have no time to write to the old folks at home. The Lancaster compa ny has finally been uniformed and will get their guns and amunition this week. They are comfortably quarter ed in the great park and are drilled from four to six hours daily. A Rec okd man will probably run down there soon and learn what the boys are do- .ing and how they are getting along. A report from there says it took 930 blouses, trousjrs and blue llinnel shirts, the same number undershirts and neckwear, 3,000 pairs of stockings, 1,300 pairs of shoes and 030 campaign hati and leggings. No measures were taken. The man was asked his height and weight.

The subject of our Navy is one which is all engrossing at the present time, and the desire for accurate and relm ble information concerning our vossels has induced the Scientific Amekican to publish a Special Navy Supplement of 40 pages, with J0 illustrations. Uvery effort has been made to explain what the Navy is. The c!ear digrams showing the differences between thesu modern fighting machines render analysis of this kind easy. It is beaut ifully illustrated by half-tone engrav ings and woodcuts showing not only the naval vessels themselves, but guns, gun turrets, conning towers, steering apparatus, etc. This number has a colored cover and colored map of Cuba, l'rice, 25 cts. Munn & Company, Jt Ilroabway, New York, are the pub. lishers. Dr. Steele llailey. Cr. Steele Ilallcj-, the popular and prominent Stanford physieian, was here this week shaking hands with many old friends and relatives. Wc heard a lady telling another lady a good one on the doctor. She said that when he was a little, dirty-faced boy, his family lived on Lexington street, in Lancaster. A couple of S2rvants were going to marry and a great crowd of negroes had gathered in the yard to witness the ceremony. The then mischievous Steele, bent on having all the fun a toy was entitled to, caught a big, black cat, and, getting on top of a near-by out-house, chopped off the cat's tail and pitched the feline in the midst of the crowd of negroes. Such a scattering of coons was never heard of before or since. The "bride's maids' snow white dresses were be spattered by the bleeding cat, the bride fainted and the groom took to the woods. It is needless to say the nuptials were indefinitely postponed. Some one interrupted the narrator at this point and we failed to hear the rest of the story.
