I hereby notify all taxpayers to
make an Inventory of all personal

what property they had at that time.
Merchants must take slock on the
first' of January so as to know what
amount or stock they had on hand to
gether with the amount of open ac-
itnunl. rlltp them.
1 would surest that all taxpayers
take stork of all corn, wheat, oats,
fodder, cotton baled and in seed,
meat, lard, flour, and all provisions,
live stock, watton. bi.KKies, automo
biles, farming Implements and all oth
er property including money on hand
and In bank and any. moneys that may
be due them in order that they may
be able to make Intelligent returns of

I ' The personal proper.- will he list
