in 1192 at Macon, Georgia, o'
May 6th, 7th and 8th. Fronr
all indications it appears thai
the Macon people are making
special efforts to entertain th(
old ~soldiers, and it is desirei
that every veteran who ca
possibly make the trip, mak<
an effort to attend this reunion
The railroads will give specia
reduced rates for the occasion
and many features will be em
ployed to give the veteran!
amusement ind interest them
In order to obtain accomoda
tions, it would be well enougl
for any who contemplate visit
ing Macon during. this reunioi
to writegtw<i7eaAquarters Con

r Georgia, and ask for as

ng the reunion.

ing hs many veterans as pcssi
ble take advantage of this op
portunity to attend a reunion

*The Confederate Cross of Honoi
Attention has been called t<
the fact that, after the year '13
no more of the little crosses o:
honor will or can be conferre<
upon Confederate veterans, o:
their descendants, by the ladie:
composing the various chapter:
-of the United Daughters of th<
nf r These crosse
wer designed as emblems o:
distinction, and are conferre<
by the women who, throug]
their organizations, are seeking
to give expression to their re
spect and veneration for a so]
diery that did so much to prov<
wfhy of every homage. Ev
erg Confederate veteran wh<
gave honorable service to th<
Southei~a cause is entitled to one
of these marks of true apprecia
tion, and the date on whici
they may be conferred is limit
ed henceforth to June 3, so fa:
as the Pickens chapter can as
sist in procuring them.'
We, therefore, urge every vet
eran who has not -yet procure<
a cross to file his application a
once with Judge J. B. Newbei y
who is always pleased to len<
every needed assistance in prop
erly making out the applicatio1
This is a; badge which yoi
have won -it is a worthy one ti

the women of this organizatio2
will feel fully repaid for thei
special efforts and the sacrific<

the maintenance of their order
if the veterans generally wil
avail themselves of the opportu
nity to have crosses presente<
on June 3. Do not delay. Ac
at once if you desire a cross.
Death of An Old Soldier.
William Collins, an old Con
federate veteran, aged eighty
one years, died at the home oi
his son-in-law, Darling Durham,
est Saturdas night, April 6th.
{e was not sick for any length
f time; Ebis death was rather
sudden. The remaims were
aid to rest on Sunday following
at Morganburving grouii near
r-aters Creek Church by the
side of his wife who preceeded
him several years. At the time
of his death Mr. Collins resided 1e0
on-the farm of Capt. W. B. All- boi
good near Pickens. Mr. Collins boi
was a good soldier, having serv
ed throughout the War in Capt.
Pulliam's Company, 2nd South ,n
Carolina Rifles. He leaves sur- co
viving his widow, a second wife, A
and three children. The funer- 1
al services were conducted by A
Rev. J. E. Foster. it

J. B. Craig,
Co. Supervisor.
It seemes that the taxes in
- this county instead of being re |
duced, increase each yar.
- Why this is we are unable to
saT. Last year we paid 19J c
- mills and this year the levy will 11
- be 191 mills. Property increas. t
- es each year. We have on the a
- tax books nearly a quarter mil- t
lion dollars more than we had a I
- year ago and yet the levy is one b
- half mill more. In the instruc
- tions sent out by the Comptrol- j
ler General to the County Audi
tor as fixed by-the act of the,4
last legislature the levy this *
,year is as follows: a
For State purposes 51 mills
For con., school tax 3 mills a
For ordinary co.. pur. 6 mills t
For past I.debtedness I mills t1
For chaingang 24 mills d
For rural police i mills t(
For sinking fund debt 11 mills
Total 191 mills
A levy for the past few years I
of one half mill has been levied
for constabulary, but according
to the instructions sent the
auditor no levy has been made
for this purnose this year. Does
this mean that the office of dis
pensary const Ible has been
abolished in this county and
rural police substituted? We
have been told that Representa
tive McCravy procured the pas
sage of an act providing fora
rural police in this county, but a
what the provisions of the law
are we are not informed. But, c
inasmuch as there has been no
levy provided for the payment tb
bof constable, we take it for ~
granted that this office has been a
abolished. We would be glad y
for someone who knows to in- v?
form our readers about this.
There does not seem to be any
necessity for th3 two officers in
this county, :onstable and rurat s
rpolice. That. it seems to us,
would be overdoing the thing in
'view of the fact that we alreadyc
have a sheriff and the m gis
Etrate's constables who have the s
same duties.
The county equalizations
Sboard met in the Auditor's office'
Slast Saturday, but no material(
Schanges in the returns of proper
Sty for taxation was made. The
assessments on some of the au
Stomobiles was raised. These c
machines are becoming quite
an item in the taxable property t
-of the county.
