Taxpayers of Columbia will proba

they go to th city hall to settle thel),
taxes for this year. For they will
find that with the same nssessmenl
(hat obtained last year the rate has
been boosted more than twenty-five
per cent.. '
The new rale now in effect is $1.-1 0
on the $100 of taxable values at
against $1.10 the rate for last year. In

Believed That New Law Will Material
ly Reduce Number of Pistol Toters
in the State Weapons to Be De
stroyed. (From Wednesday's Daily Herald.)
It. is believed that the practice of
'Pistol toting" will be materially re
luced by the action of the last legis
ature. It came' to light in a discussion in
"lounty criminal court, this morniuju,
hat in nil pistol toting cases, the
weapon seized as evidence; by the ofllc

r of herw iSe disposed of by the court,
md in addition to Ibis any 'person
'bund guilty of "toting" 'the pistol
iliall be lined not lens than $r,() and
:osts.
In the. past it has been customary
or tie court, to return (lie weapon to
.he,. defendant after the trial, and fr'e
juenfly it has been known, that the
tame gun has iiiyde its appearance in
;ourt more than opcej in other words
'.he same defendant has been indicted
'or carrying a pistol more than once,
and it has been found that he had in
lis possession the same pistol for
.liich he was arrested for carrying
'.he first time. The new law will break
up this practice, "as the gun recovered
will remain in possession of the court
if jurisdiction until if is destroyed or
rtherwifie dr.por.ed of.
the action of the new law will add
i total of several dollars to the cost
;f. "toting pistols" as the cost of the
weapon must be added to the fine as-1
;ersed by the court. The price of the
pistols now so widely '. advei tised
ranges from $1.", to and up, there
'ore this added to (he $r.O fine ahd
."osts will make it rutin r expensive
.t ,riuyy weapon, contrary to. the
'Jhuix of the state.
Judge Vh ill borne declared' this
norniiig that he would observe the law
'o the loiter a'hd that all "Weapons

(From Monday's Daily Herald.)
All Columbia was shocked this morn
ing shortly after 8 o'clock when the
car of Kirk Foster, of Stlversville,
driven by his son Burnett, Foster,
struck and seriously injured Mrs. Tur
ner Jiraly, wie of Dr. liraly, one of the
best known mid most popular citizens
of' the city.
The accident occurred on South
Main street as Mr. Foster and mem
bers of his family were coming into
the city.; lCioni the best; accounts ob
tainable it appears that the car was
driven at a low rate of speed when
the accident occurred and that It was
flopped within' a' few feet, of the place
where Mrs. Daily was struck. The
latter is said to have' been crossing
the street. She was behind a buggy
and hidden completely from the car.
In attempting to evade the buggy the
car turned and at the same time Mrs.
Ilraly pushed out in front of the horse I
ana nuggy una jusi us sue was reveal

Mrs. Barly's left collar bone and one
rib were broken and it is feared that
she is i menially injuied. She was
rushed at once to the King's Daugh
lers hospital where every possible aid
fas rendered her. liwas impossible
this morning to state definitely just
how seriously injured she was. The
car struck her with full force and
knocked her down and ran over her.
The baby was 1 brown clear of the car
and is not thought to have sustained
very serious injuries.
Voting Foster was driving the car
and with him were his father Kirk
Foster, his sister, Miss Flna Foster,
ami his brother, Clyde Foster, .lust
