CHANGES IS TAX LAWS.
A most important* change ! ■■
been made in the instructions Pm
tax receivers just issued from the,
office of the Comptroller General
AVright. The day for makii g re
turns has been placed on the Ist
of February. Those who take the
oath to give in their propertv af
ter the tax receiver’s books open
on April Ist will be required to
swear to the amount of- property
they held on February Ist. intead
of March Ist, as heretofore.
Another and the most radical
change in the manner of giving
tax returns was made by the legis
ture at the last session. In the
general tax act it is provided that
the tax receiver, or some one in
the presence of the tax receiver,
must administer the oath in per
son to everypue who wishes to
make his return.
In many counties where there
are a large number of taxpayers
the time required to administer
the oath to each one as he presents
himself to the tax receiver’s office
will be very great, and it is believed
that time which the books will be
kept open will have to be length
ened, although this is not provided
for in the general act.
Under the head of stocks, bonds,
notes accounts, judgements, mort
gages, hens, etc., the instructions
state that the tax receivers should
be vigilant in having the returns
made on this class of property.
The tax act of 1898 says that all
' such property as mentioned is tax
able. It also says that the stock
of insurance, telegraph, express
and telephone companies is taxa
ble for state ai.d county tax owned
or held by citizens of this state
whether in or out of the state.
There are other changes but the
above are the most important.
THE SKELETON IN' I'KESInENT MC
All America waits intently to
hear the thrilling story of ruin and
retribution that will be unfolded,
piece by piece, in the Canton, 0.,
court on April 4. The story will
tell of a woman’s frailty, a man’s
villainy and the vengeance of one
loved and then cast off with mock
ing scorn. The man in the case
was the brother-in-law of Presi
dent McKinley, and bis tragic
death on the night of October 0,
1898, sent a thrill of surprise and
horror through every American
household. Very few people were
aware that tne gentle mistres3 of
the whitehouse had a brother who,
to speak as charitably as possible
of the dead, was a libertine whoso
tragic end no decent person could
deplore. He died by the hand of
the woman he had wronged and
deceived—one of many. Little
Allie Shoffer, of Canton, 0., the
first girl whom George Saxton
wooed, died of a broken heart when
she found him false to her A
leading Canton physician shot him
for attempting to invade the peace
of his home. The libertine spent
a vacation on a country farm, and
after he had left, the pretty little
daughter of the farmer, a child of
fourteen, crept out in the night
and drowned herself in a pond.
Then Saxton came into the life of
the woman by whom ho met his
He was a fine looking man, big
(aud blonde, hearty, wealthy and
full of life. She was a happy wife
and mother, beautiful, and sharing
comparative poverty with her hus
band, a carpenter. The man of
wealth was her landlord. His at
tractive personality and his money
gained for him first place in the
affections of Mrs. Semple George
Then began the tragic part of the
story. Mrs. George gave up all
for Saxton. Saxton promised to
marry her when she secured a Da
kota divorce. He had made that
promise very often in his lifetime,
but he died a bachelor. Sick at
heart and half mad over her trou
bles, Mrs. George cane to Saxton
one day to claim his promise for
the last time. “Go to the devn,”
said Saxton. Two days later Sax
ton was shot to death iu Canton.
No one can be found who heard
the shots fired. Mrs. George told
her seducer he should die for his
villainy. Whether or not she
must die for her act of retribution
or whether Americans, who respect
the sacred institution of the home,
will demand that she be allowed to
go free, remains to be seen. The
woman who killed the libertine
sits in her cell, her glorious beauty
gone and her happy life blighted,
waiting to be tried for murdering
the man w'hose whole life was as a
serpent’s trail. The trial will be
of national importance.

HELP BEAR KAt H OTHERS’ KI RIIENB.
These arc great times for people
to feel blue and out of sorts —we
all know how it is, and we might
all help our fellow-beings through
these gloomy periods by words of
kindness and cheerfulness.
Frank L. Stanton, of Georgia,
and James Whitcomb Riley, the
“hoosier poet” of Indiana, are the
two most widely quoted writers
now in America; and all their
j writings are the bidding of a heart
that wells up sengs of sunshine
Hereaieafew lines from Riley’s
pen, which if we would all accept
as one of the rules of our living,
would help to send a ray of bright
ness into many a darkened heart:
“If you should see a fellow-man with
trouble’s flag unfurled,
An’ lookin’ like he didn't have a friend
' in all Ihe world,
Go up an’ slap him en the back, an’ hol
ler ‘How d’yo do;
An’ grasp his hand so warm he’ll know
he’s got. a friend in you.
Then ax him what’s a hnrtin’ him,
an’ laugh his cares away,
Ail’tell him that the darkest night is
just before the day;
Don’t talk grave-yard palaver, but say
it right out loud,
That God would sprinkle sunshine in
the trail of every cloud. ’’
A small church was sadly in
need of general repairs, and a
meeting was being held in it with
a view of raising funds for that
purpose. The minister having
said SSOO would be required, a very
wealthy (and equally stingy)mem
ber of the congregation rose and
said he would give one dollar.
•Just as he sat down, however, a
lump of plaster fell from the ceil
ing and hit him on the head, where
upon he rose up hastily ar.d called
out that he had made a mistake—
he would give SSO. This was too
much for an enthusiast present,
who, forgetful of everything, called
“O, Lord, hit him again!”—Ex.

It is a very common thing to
hear the expression “hard times”
It is an uuthan kful expression. In
this country we do not know what
it is to want. The seasons never
fail completely and even if the
crops were to fail entirely for one
year there would yet remain suffi
cient food in this country to last
until another year. It is not so
in other lands. India has just
passed through a great famine
which large numbers of people
have starved to death. China is
now threatened with a famine in
which will result in the death of
many thousands. These people
live so near death’s door, the pop
ulation so numerous and the wa
ges so small, that any shortage of
crops is likely to be the death of
multitudes. Would it not be well,
when we become dissatisfied with
our lot for us to remember how
much better off we are as a peo
ple than almost any other nation
on the globe, and instead of com
plaining of hard times, give glory
that we never suffer as others do ?

BOILS INDICATE DISEASED
IF NOT CURED THEY LEAD TO CARBUN
CLES AND RUNNING SORES.
Boils, or their more aggravated form
of carbuncle, surely indicates a dis
eased condition of the blood, which
should have prompt attention on the
appearance ol the first symptoms, or
they may lead to more serious diseases.
Eat the best you can get, and freely
use Botanic Blood Balm (B. B. B.).
Mrs. VV. A. Steed, of Augusta, Geor
gia, had boils for several years past, as
well as a carbuncle over the right eye.
This spring she felt the symptoms of
boils coming on again. While sewing
she would prick the skin with her nee
dle. The little sores would fester.
She took two bottles of Botonic Blood
Balm (B. B. B), and was entirely
cured, and she passed the spring with
out the annoying boils and possible re
turn of a carbuncle. Her blood was
relieved of poison matter by B. B. 8.,
which a powerful blood remedy.
J. D. Watkins, Blakely, Ga ~ writes :
“Old sores covered my entire person
and itched intensely night and day.
For several months I could not work
at all. I commenced the use of Botan
ic Blood Balm (B. B. B.) and begin to
grow better the first week, and am now
sound and well, free from sores and
itching, and at work again.” a
