than winds can roughen. If neglected, face and
hands can hardly keep from roughening in cold,

son there's no grease or stickiness to annoy.

Ray McKinley, a deckhand on the
Bteamer N. R. Lang, met with a serious
accident Sunday evening, which nearly
cost him his life. Mr. McKinley left
the steamer about 11 o'clock, to coma to
this city on an errand, and while walk
ing along the breakwater stepped into
an opening, and fell to the water 40 feet
hplnw Men on the steamer heard his
cries, rushed to the rescue, and found
McKinley lying helpless on the ground,
near the water. He was taken aboard
the steamer and a physician was im
mediately summoned, who on examin

badly bruised and cut. The injured
man was taken to Marine hoBplral in

The taxes on county property for 1900
will be 29 mills and on city property 43
mills. The taxes are constantly in
creasing and the public debtB are con
stantly increasing. Out of a voting pop.
ulation of over 6000 but 800 pay poll
tax. Deducting 1200 for old age and ex
empts would still leave 3000 polls or
19000.17200 more than we get now.
This would pay the salary of a special
collector and have a handsome balance
for the county. This is but one item of
loss and shows how we are drifting. Its
somebody's business ro look after these
leaks. We pay salaries enough. At
