who came to attend were unable to get
into the building, there were so many.
Col. R. T. Jaynes of Walhalla was the
principal speaker at the meeting and
he made one of the best addresses even
heard here. Rev. Mr. Taylor of Wal
halla also made an appropriate talk.
During Col. Jaynes' address he eulo
gized the Confederate soldier and asked
Mr. R. A. Bowen, a Confederate vet
eran who was on the rostrum, to stand
up so the young soldiers could see him.
When Mr. Bowen was presented the
large audience burst into spontaneous
cheering and applause. A dramatic
touch was also given the occasion .wher
at the close of an outburst of oratory,
Messrs. Jaynes and Bowen, represent.
ing South Carolina, stood before the
audience and shook hands with Lieut.
Hogan of Maine, who was here to ac
company the boys to Camp Jackson,
thus signifying the reunion of the Norti
and South, while the audience wildly
applauded. Old soldiers who werc
present were so moved by the occasion
that tears rolled down their cheeks.

REMOVE THE ODIOUS
STIGMA OF SLACKER
FROM OUR STATE'S NAME
We call upon the people of South Carolina to remove this ugly,
shameful stigma from the name of our State. What will be said, and
I said justly, if South Carolina continues to rhake the worst showing of all
the states in the Union? What will be the feeling of the Palmetto sol
diers when they learn that we failed Ignominiously to help sustain them
by failing to save for them? In the fact of the uncomplaining sacrifices
which South Carolina fighting men are making cheerfully, we can not
longer hold back. We must respond generously and immediately to the
War Savings appeal. We call upon the men, women, and children of the
State to save for victory, to invest in War Savings Stamps, and to lend
their personal and earnest efforts to make the campaign a success.

117, Per Cent. Land
The South Carolina Tax Commission
has ordered that the assessment of land
in Pickens county be raised from an
average of $3.78 per acre to $8.22 per
acre, an increase of 117 per cent. The

ments of horses and mules be increased

To the Chairman County Board of

It appearing from the report of the
county auditor of the action of the
county board of equalization of Pickens
county that the average assessed value

assessed at $3.78 per acre, and it
further appearing that horses had been
assessed in said county at an average
of $46.00 per head, and mules at an
average of $48.00 per head, and it ap
pearing that such valuations are too
low for the purpose of putting said
property on an equality with similar

legislature conferring power upon the
tax commission to equalize all classes
of property throughout the state, it is
ordered that the assessment of land in
Pickens county be increased from $3.78
per acre to $8.22 per acre, or approxi
mately 117 per cent more than the as

and that the assessment of horses he
increased from $1;.00 per head to
$50.60, or an increase of 10 per cent
over the assessment fixed by the county
board; and that the assessment of mules
be increased from $i$ (i per head to
$52.4 per head, or an increase of 1O
per cent over the assessment as fixed
by the county I oard: and it is further
ordered that a copy of this order be
served by the county auditor upon the
chairman of the county board of equali
zation of said county.
