ON PAYING ACCOUNTS.
AVMth the prospect so promising for
a good crop and fair prices, many good
people who have fallen behind in their
accounts during the past couple of
years will be enable 1 to come to the
aid of their creditors by meeting these
obligations. An.I this is as it ought
to be. In many instances accounts
are so far overdue that the interest on
them has eaten up the profits and have
gone into the original cost of the pur
chases. Merchants in ovt ry cominuni
ty of the county, and other counties
for that matter, have been sorely
pushed during the past few months to
meet their own obligations because of
these overdue accounts and they are
expecting their customers to come for
ward and meet them so that, they too
may got back into the good graces of
their bankers ami wholesale dealers.

to give to the public definite infor

Chlcora College, but there are a
number of conditions to be met be
fore the committee can make a deci

resolved into a few sites, but there
must be gas, water and lights provided
before the college can locate. For this
session, and In all probability for the
next as well, the college will be con
ducted at the present site. During the
summer general repair work has been
done on the interior of the college, the
walls recalClmlned, the parlors and
hall recarpeted and furnished, and
other minor changes made.?Tho
