Clark has collected $85 in taxes from trancient sellers of goods of one kind and another, n innovation in the matter of assessing, Jialf enough to pay his salary. But all Xaa not been clear sailing with him. It will be remembered that a gang of men peddled seeders throughout the county tvy aring the fall. Mr. Clark desired to an assessment against the manager of the enterprise, but he was unable to Obtain his name. He applied to the clerk of the hotel where he boarded, but the clerk declined to give the desired information.

In another case, the auctioneer who held forth in the build ing adjoining the opera house, the assessor ingratiated himself into his confidence and was told that he was go ing to put in a "tremendous stock." The assessor postponed assessing until the stock was all in, but somebody "put the fellow on," and he stored his stock in secret places about town and on ly exposed a small quantity at a time. Fisally Malcom had to assess the stock in sight, and while the fellow sold about $1,600 worth of goods, he paid only $10 taxes. POINTS HEAVENWARD. How to Be Bfkttbe Lord Jen*—Steps To ward Son Ship—Spirtual Growth. OaACK OHUBGH. "I beseech you that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice unto God. Be not conformed to this world but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God," Rom. xii, J, 2, and, "Remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how He said, 'it is more blessed to give than to re ceive,"' Acts xx, 35. Two strong contrasts an set before us, that between being "conformed" and "transformed" and that between "giving and receiving." To t* conformed means here to be shaped according to, as a mould or pattern to be transformed is to be made over and changed into some thing different in substance and char acter. In the former, it is implied that the mould or pattern is a worthless thing, which is to be removed or crumble to pieces, as a core of sand, when once the conformation is complete. So putty may be conformed and harden past re call and so iron, under the excitement of great heat, becomes "unstable as water" and is shaped at will in earthen moulds. This is the process, too, by which the plastic, lower nature in man is so resdily "conformed to the world," wrapping itself about and becoming irrevocably fixed in oonformity to the things of time and sense which are ever passing and soon to pass away. How many, alas! from childhood up, reach no higher goal than just this gradual conformity to the age in which they live, the ideas of men currant in their day until, in adult years, it is hard indeed to reach them with the oall to forsake all and follow Christ. In marked contrast to this is the process by which we are born again and made new creatures in Christ Jesus transformed by the regenerating power of the Holy Spirit until "as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly." The connection between this and the saying of the Lord Jesus, "it is more blessed to give than to receive," is hot remote. Jesus here, and Paul in be seeching us to "present our bodies a liv ing sacrifice unto God," both strike at the root of conformity to the world. Not "more easy', says our Lord, for everything worth having is difficult to acquire, but, "more blessed." "Blessed" has the same root meaning as bliss and blithe. Jesus says it is a more blissful, blithesome, joyous thing to give than to receive. Now the secret of the world's great toil is the search tyr happiness tend pleasure. The motive force is the gratification of the natural to the fxclu sion of the spiritual life. The body is the seat and fountain of this motive force. The method it proposes is self gratification by getting. There is a kind of pleasure in this by which we are mis led. But, where is the promised bliss? It is still a will o' the wisp in advance, beckoning us on. Begin by making the body a sacraflcial gift to God, as is done in baptism, and the law of the higher kingdom may find place for action the process of transformation by the renew ing of our minds begin its blessed work, while, by this test of giving, ourselves we prove what is that good and accept able and perfect will of God. So may we come to know that the bliss of giving is even a taste of likness to God, and to be schooled in the pleasure of it, a chief means of grace, fitting us for blithe someness and enduring joy in that better oountry, even as heavenly. M. JC. church, Conditions of Sonship. Text, St. Jfohe i 12,13. For simplicity we transpose our text so that it reads, "To them that believe on his name, and receive him, which are born, not of blood, not of the will of the flesh, not of the will of man, but of God, to them gave he power to become the Sons of God" This reveals the true order of the steps or conditions to Sonship at everywhere supported by God's word. I To "believe on his name" is the first step to be taken. A Jewish name always has a special significance. "The name here referred to is no exception. His name discloses his nature. He is the Son of God and Son of man. Both divine and human. This, the Jews would not believe. They would not ad mit his divinity and when he made claims to it they charged him with blas phemy. His name also reveals his mis sion. "His name shall be called Jesus tor he shall save his people from their Bins." We must see in Christ, not only a efcaraoter i*jgjstory, pot alone the ntttiiiiiiiiMiil 11 God man but the "Lamb of God that taketh away the sins of the world." To believe on hie name then, is to be lieve in his Dual Nature and in his power and purpose to save from sin. This is the first step. 2. We must receive him. Whedon says, "this is faith in action." He stands "at the door and knocks." We are to arise and let him in. To receive Christ presupposes three things at least, (a) The surrender of will. (b)The abandon ment of sin. (c) The purpose to serve him for life. We are not to experiment with religion, we are to deliberately count the cost, and enlist in the Divine service for life. These preparations made and the guest of tha Mill Will come in. 3. Christ's first work in coming into the heart is regeneration. His coming is regeneration. Being born again, born from above, born of God. Our text clearly states what this is not. The errors of heathenism, Judaism, and nom inal Christianity are not so different in kind and degree. People today are making the same mistakes, as the Jews in Christ's time, in miscon. ceptions of the NeW Birth, (a) It is not of blood, of good parentage the Jews boast "We be Abraham's seed," availed nothing, for they were also Adraham's seed, (b) "Nor of the will of the flesh"—Sole resolution, and the out ward reformation which comes from it, is not sufficient. There is a reaction nullifies action, word, and man is helpless, (c) "Nor of the will of man." The earnest desire and prayers of our well wishers, alone cannot help us. There is danger of putting too much de pendence in "mother's prayers", by ex pecting they will save us, without |effort on our part. "Verily I say onto you, ye must be born again." 4. With the impartation of life which is the characteristic of regeneration then comes the gracious and condescend ing act of adoption. "Ye are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citi zens." What king or governor ever pardons on such liberal terms? Christ adopts us into his family. Restores to us his image. Gives us his name. Pledges his especial care and protection. Makes us heirs to heaven. Of all this he gives us the gracious and comforting evidence by his spirit bearing witness with ours." This is sonship—thew ace the steps. Who will take them. cormtv Bir«iisBist». FrMee41igi of the ComnlmianMI of Lake Canty la Regular HeaalM AMwablfd, Jlaaaary, 1NM. FIRST DAT. The board of county commissioners of Lake county, S.

New Under the Son. above oaption refers to a new departure undertaken by the CITIZENS NATIONAL BANK of this city, and it is the inauguration of a SAVINGS DEPARTMENT of that institution. While this department will be oper ated in connection with the other management of the bank, it will be kept entirely separate from the other accounts through a complete set of books upon the Savings Bank system. It has lxen believed by a great number of peo ple in this community that there is a growing demand or need for such an insti tution, so that people having little surpluses of money by savings, an opportunity of putting their amounts, even though small, where they will be accumulating something. The imraedinteoauHOof theadoptionof the plan, now, was the opportunity presented for introducing the UUK'Ns ,v P. \R( LAY C(ygj SAV INGS BANK, to customers This bank was patented last August, and sinoe that time thousands of them have been distributed for the pur poses for which they are in tended. It is the toy sav ings bank developed into a business principle. THE BANK SAFE is a nickel-plated brass bank, with combination look, and is very ornamental and con venient. Money deposited therein can only be taken out at the office of the CIT IZENS NATIONAL BANK, as the th.«re. wm rented, the amount is taken out and counted in the presence of the customer and an interest bearing certificate or account issued therefor. Interest pa% ing periods will be quarterly, on the,first days of January, April, July and October, and the interest will be computed on the savings bank plan. People ordinarily hesitate to take small amounts to bank, but the Bank Safes ?ne can have at their homes where any amount can be deposited when convenient. Besides this, when there is a bank established for the purpose of dealing with and receiving small amounts, the hesitancy is apt to subside. It is the real purpose of the Savings Bank system to encourage small savings, and this establishment will not be an exception. These Bank Safes will be loaned to spy one who will deposit $2.00 as a guaran tee for its safe return. Upon surrender of the safe in as good condition as when received by the customer, ordinary wear excepted, the amount will be refunded. Quite a number of these banks have gone out in Madison already, before the idea has been generally circulated, and there is no question but that every pa rent should have one for the family, and every single person one for their own welfare. We are informed that there are cities in this state using upward of a thousand of these safes. A glance at the subjoined table will show what savings will do in a short time. There are 313 work days in a year, and by depositing the amounts as shown in the schedule the accumulations will be as exhibited^ AMOUNT PUB DAY, roa FIVE YEABS 5 cents.... 10 cents..... 15 cents.... 21) cects.. •. 25 cents.••• 80 cents...• 40 oents 50 cents.••• 75 cents-••• 1.00....... 1.25....... 1.50....••• 1.75... 2.00..
