The busiest nlacc In these parts dur ing the month of December, was ovir nt the County collector on ice. nnu especially the last two weeks of the month, when It seemed ns If every body nnd nil their wife's relation were anxious 10 liquidate ineir ui accounts. With the aid of his very ef ficient deputy, Miss Nettle Huettor, his wife und son, Gary, who was home from school, he managed to handle nearly $'200,000, nnd had he known It n time mat u was going 10 come so dose to that mark, he might, by oxlia additional effort reached that turn. However, he seems very well satisfied as his collections thin December arc nearly $ir,000 greater than they were in ucccmncr I'.'ii, nnu mis too wiiu a lower assessment. He has that happy faculty of Inducing n fellow to loosen his purse strings, but he can't Induce them to do It only during tne lail month nf the venr.
