polls this year is ItTl , against !4I last year.
About 100 SXemntlons were made in th
case of persons beyond statutory age and
disabled soldiers. and on account of pov
erty, sickness, etc. This would swell the
numher nf taxahle polls to nearly 1,100, a
larger numher than ever before. The real

Considering the fact that so much money
has gone out of the town during the past

elsewhere. it is remarkable that tlie list
hobls out as well as it does.
