As to Obituaries.
The rule of this Offico as to the pub
lication of Obituaries, has always been
that such matter in excess of t*? lines
was chargeable, at the same rate as
advertising?one dollar per square,
space of one inch.
We now extend the limit to twenty
lines. All obituaries exceeding tins
limit must be paid for at said rate.

not toll you who is on the jury in I.au

friends aro married and who aro dead.
You cannot call upon them to publish

Editor Herald: In the statement I
gave you last week, relative to the af
fairs of the Commissioners of Public
Works, including the list of checks, I
desired to show only my stewardship in
our town affairs, and should you have
printed the list of checks which I sign
ed, and which were numbered consec
utively, it would have explained the
Statement more fully. I signed no
cheek that I did not believe we had
gotten value received for.
R. H. HUDOKNS,
As Mr. Dial refers to Mr. Hudgens
being in error, or that he probably re
ferred, when speaking of the $150.00
fee, "to the United States court, in
stead of the Supreme court," in jus
tice to Mr. Hudgens we will state that
the error was ours, and not Mr. Hudg
ens's. As to the list of checks to which
Mr. Hudgens referred, their aggregate
was the same as the amount given by
Mr. Hudgens, namely, $:>0,'188.7M, and
consequently we deemed such publica
tion sufHoient for the public's informa
tion, especially since both Mr. Hudg
ens and Mr. Dial say that any further
information can be obtained by con
sulting Mr. Halle's books. We will
further say that Mr. HudgciiH was not
understood as requesting us to publish
"the list of checks" to which he refers.
You will have two handsome feet to
stand on if* you put them in a pair of
our Hess shoes, Davis, Roper & Co.

pression, while "The Creole Love

enthusiastic hearers, who were also

To His Honor W. C. Bellet, Pre
siding Judgo at the February
Term of Court for the Year, 'OS.
Tho Grand Jury beg leave to
submit the following as their final
Presentment for this Term of tho
1. We have passed upon all bills
handed to us by the Solicitor.
2. We have examined all of tho
public buildings of the county and
flud theni in good repair, with the
exception of tho porches of the
court house, which leak badly, into
th<? offices below, and we rocom
mond that the Supervisor have
same repaired so they will not
leak if possible.
8. We have ban a committee to
visit the county house for the poor,
and they report the sane; as in a
neat and cleanly condition with
only twelve inmates, who seem to
bo comfortable ami as happy as
possible under such circumstances.
4. We repeat our recommenda
tion, that tho publio roads pre
sent, (1 by the Grand Jury at Oc
tober term of court, be worked and
put in good condition immediate
ly, or as soon as possible.
5. We have examined books of
Magistrates John M. Hudgens, \V.
M. McMillan, J. W. Donnon, G.
P. Woods, Joel Ellison, J. C. Cook,
G. W. Moore and J. M. Gray.
We have re-examined Magist rate
Gray's books at this term of tin?
court and find that his shortage
presented by tho Grand Jury at
the last term of court was in error
by reason of deficient and incor
rect report from the County Treas
urer as to moneys received by him
from Magistrate J. M. Gray. By
tho corrected report from County
Treasurer wo find that Magistrate
John M. Gray is not short any
amount, according to his books
and t he books of the County Treas
urer. The Treasurer explained
the deficient report referred to,
his not being familiar with the
books of his predecessor, and the
short lime in which be had to get
up the report.
We take pleasure in repeating
t hat the books of Magistrates Hud
gens, Moore, Gray <fe Cook, which
were presented at last term of
court , have been properly docket
ed to dato and satisfactorily ex
0. We recommend that the Su
pervisor furnish Criminal Docket
Books to Magistrates Moore, Hud
gens and Gray.
7. We recommond that. Water
Works be placed in second story
of the jail building as a protection
from fire, and for prisoners' use.
Also, that three incandescent elec
tric lights be placed in the open
hall-way through the court house
building under the court room.
8. We have made a casual ex
amination of all public ollices by
committees; also, the Dispensary
and the jail, and lind them appa
rently in well-kept condition.
0. We renew the recommenda
tion of the Grand Jury of last
year, that tho Clerk of court's of
fice be furnished wit h a first class
roller top office desk.
10. We ask and recommend that
blinds be placed to tho windows of
tho Grand Jury room before tin'
Summer term of court, for the
comfort of tho Grand Jury and
protection of the building.
11. We have carefully considered
tho County Supervisor's report
handed to us by your Honor,
and lind it correctly roported
from bis books. From said
report we lind that the total
expenditures of tho county for
the fiscal year, 18U7, to be
eighteen thousand nine hundred
and eighty-six dollars and sixty
nine cents, which will leave a de
ficiency, and increase the county's
debt three to four thousand dol
lars, as the taxes for county pur
poses will amount to less t han six
teen thousand dollars. Tin; Grand
Jury deplores the stato of tho fi
nances of tho county as shown by
said report, and would advise the
strictest economy on tho part of
the publio ollleials.
12. In conclusion, we dosiro to
thank your Honor and other olli
cers of the Court for courtesies
extended to tho Grand Jury du
ll ng this term of court.
