The Chancery Court made an order restraining the sheriff and his succes sors in office, forever, from collecting any more taxes by Road District No. 2, on the lands included in District No. 1. That order still stands. The Chan cery Court also ordered the sheriff to pay back to the taxpayers the money in his hands which he had collected on the lands included in Road District No. 1. That part of the decree was revers ed and it was the judgment of the su preme court that No. 1 should pay its proportional part of the preliminary expenses of District No. 2. The result of the decision is to for ever put Sections 1 and 3 of Road Dis trict No. 2, out of business so far as building a road is concerned. That question has been in dispute but under the decision of the supreme court it is settled. Now let us all get together and build the “Missing Link” of the “Bankhead Highway” under Road District No. 1. Respectfully, J. O. A. Bush. -o Subscribe tor the Daily Picayune. • • • • Mr. John Henry and wife and Mrs. Hirst Henry of Bluff City are visitors here today.
