The cause of the explosion is
somewhat of a mystery. It is
thought by some that after firing
up Sexton may have turned cold
wider into the boilers, though this
is not dollnitely known.
The entire power plant of the
mill, consisting of lour large boil
ers and the engine, was totally de
stroyed, entailing a loss of some
i?I(1,000, besides the delay in the
work. As a result, the mills will
have to shut down for the present,
and many hands will be thrown
out of work.

J. Littleton Jones,
tf Attorney for Trustee.
For the information of the pub
lic ami road supervisors, \V. L.
Stallings, Clerk of the County Com
missioners, has prepared the fol
lowing information in reference to
the collection of the commutation
road tax, and the rules and tin-
law governing the same.
The commutation road tax for
the year 190(1 has been fixed at
#3.50, or in lieu thereof, six days
work on the public roads. If this
tax is paid on or Is'fore March loth,
next, a deduction of fifty cents will
lie made. One object of this de
duction of fifty cents is to induce
the tax payer to voluntarily pay
the supervisor, and thereby save
the County the expense of sending
supervisors to collect the tax.
This tax is dm-and payable wheth
er demanded before or after the
15th day of March.
When tax is demanded and not
paid, the person from whom de
manded may be summoned to work
on (lie road, and if he fails to work,
is a defaulter; whether before Di
aller the 15th day of March.
This lax must lie paid to super
visor or overseer, and in no ev ent
to the County Commissioners, or
their clerk. If paid to overseer, it
will lie turned over by him to the
supervisor and by the supervisor
paid into the County Treasury.
As yet, no overseers have been
elected. The superv isors make a
monthly report of all taxes collect
ed and this report is filed in the
County Commissioners’ office, and
is open to public inspection. Nu
pervisors are not authorized to
take any fractional purl of this tax;
that is, a hand cannot work part
and pay part.
While supervisors will spend a
short time in collecting (ax prior
to March 15th, the (ax after March
15th will lie #3.50, whether de
mand had been made for it or not.
Road tax shall in no event be
credited on bills against the Coun
ty. 'flu' road tax must be paid in
to the County Treasury, and Conn
ty vouchers given for accounts
against the county, alter same
have been audited by commission

the law be lined less than one dol
