PAYMENT OF TAXES.
There is a good deal of adverse com
ment relative to the intention of .the
sheriff to enforce tax collections this
year of all others, when money . is so
terribly close. The sheriff has started
in upon an odious duty, of course, but
with the best of intentions, and knowing
. fall well that be is about to make him
self more or less unpopular, to the cor
responding gain of the county. Bat
there are good reasons, on the other
band, why a little leniency should be
shown. , In the first place the burden
has been increased by the high rate of
assessment. Sheep are assessed at $1.50
a head, when thousands of them can be
bought for $1' a head now. Real estate
is also held at too high a figure, much be
yond what it could be sold for, and the
Btate board of equalization has increased
values beyond even the original assess
ment. Bat taxes, even if they were so
low as to correspond with the financial
depression, are in many cases difficult to
pay by the first of April. If a two
months' reprieve could be given by the
county court it would act as a great
blessing. There will be more wool sold
outright this year, not on consignment,
as it was last year. We also confidently
believe that wheat will take a turn for
the better (it cannot go lower) and a
great deal of wheat now held by the
. farmers in storage will seek the increased
price. This will loosen up the congested
state of the money market, and make it
much more plentiful by circulation. It
will be consequently much easier to pay
taxes by the first of June than the 1st of
April. Indeed, in many cases it will be
impossible to pay on the latter date.
For centuries wise men have realized
the immense power of moving water.
Could the power of the ocean waves and
of falling streams be harnessed and sent
over the land to furnish light, heat and
motive power, the world would be made
better and happier at once. When the
scheme to develop the power of Kiagara
was proposed, many questioned the
sanity of the proposer. Yet it is an
accomplished fact. For years efforts
bave been made to utilize the power of
the ocean waves, but little has yet come
of it except where here and there flood
gates, to utilize the rise and fall of the
tides, have been erected. A scheme has
now been proposed which outbids all
others in audacity. This is naless than
to build a dam or wall between the north
of Ireland and a point in Scotland fifteen
-miles away. At this point the tide runs
rapidly and it is estimated that several
flood gates in such a dam would supply
an immense power that could be trans
mitted in the form of electricity all over
Scotland, England and Ireland. En
gineers declare this plan practicable. If
carried out it would add more than ever
to England's manufacturing supremacy.
It has been discovered that the three
members of the tariff committee who
had. direct charge of the Wilson tariff
bill are all ex-confederates Jones, Mills
and Vest. While it is possible' for this
fact to be an accident, yet there is a sin-
Jeter meaning in it. The confederate
constitution not only declared for
slavery, but provided that no tax should
be placed on importations for the pur
pose of "promoting or fostering any
branch of industry." Georgia expressly
declared in her ordinance of seccession
that one of her motives was hostility to
a tariff system which, insured "extrava
gant wages" to northern workingmen at
the expense of southern planters who
owned their labor; and the confederate
commissioners assured Lord Russell at
a later date that "the principal cause
which led the Southern States to secede
. from the Union was not slavery,, bat the
prices which, for the sake of protection,
the south was obliged to pay for manu
factured goods." Slavery and free trade
are thus twins in iniquity. The' one
has been discarded by the arbitrament
of war. If the other lives, one of the ob
jects of the "lost cause" will have been
attained after thirty years, and partially,
the blood of nearly two millions of men
will have been shed in vain.
O. W. O. Hardman, Sheriff of Tyrel
Co., W. Va., appreciates a good thing
and does not hesitate to say so. He was
almost prostrated with a cold .when he
procured, a bottle of Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy. He says: "It gave me
prompt relief. I find it to be an invalu
able remedy for coughs and colds." For

man overlooked the fixing of the roads
about town, and he did it well notwith
standing he left a pond in front of C. P.
Balch's drug store, which sorely tried
C. P.'s usually sweet temper. He hints
of procuring a cheap boy to catch frogs
for it, so as to have music in the spring
time. But we hope it will be attended to.
A bevy of old and young men were busy,
including T. H. Johnston, and for some
reason they turned their attention to the
road mostly in front of the store and up
the street, which is now improved from
its past condition.
Monday was school meeting, at which
were some lively discussions on certain
points ot school law. Mr. A. K. Dufur
was elected director for three years
and Geo. W.. Johnston was re-elected
school clerk by acclamation. Some iron
clad rules were made, such as: First
No cigarette smoking allowed . on the
school grounds, or to and from school
Second Pupils are not allowed to leave
the school grounds during school hours
without permission.. These are good
rules, we all think. Two or three of
the anxious (?) paters objected to the
young gentlemen walking down the
street with their well, we won't say
any more on the subject, but earnestly
hope they will think better of the mat
ter by this time; but ah exchange of
opinions sometimes results in. good to

Friday, March "9th. Locally speak-!
ing, business during the past week has
been very quiet. Bad roads and stormy
weather has put a quietus on all branches
of trade. Dealers are beginning to re
plenish their depleted stock, which is
late for the season of the year.
Prices in dry goods, boots and shoes
have not changed materially from those
of last year. ' -'
Groceries and provisions are in good
supply. Sugar is' firm, with a tendency
to advance in price. Coffee, while old
quotations are maintained for tne pres
ent, has a . downward tendency on a
weak ' market. In San Francisco im
porters have tried' to force sales, but
have not met with particular success.
Eggs Further increase in receipts of
ranch eggs now coming to band are
noted.- and though demand has been
stimulated by a farther decline of two
cents in values, offerings are still liberal
and the market favors buyers.
Fresh meats are ruling steady and a
trifle quiet at former range of values.
Live stock is more plentiful.
. Poultry Supplies of desirable stocks
are not coming to hand in quantities
fully sufficient for current requirements,
and values are maintained firm.
Apples Stock 8 of apples are growing
infinitesimally less as the weeks advance,
and there is practically nothing offering
in the city in the way of first-class
fruit. Values have gone up in propor
tion, as supplies decreased, and it is
now practically impossible to touch even
the poorest qualities of . cooking at less
than 50 cents per box.
There is no change in the potato
The grain markets present no new

AN AGE OF WONDERS.
Remarkable Things That" Show
Great This Country Is.
This is a wonderful age we are liv
ing in a wonderful age, and this is a
wonderful country. It is doubtful if
any of the effete old world ' dynasties
caii produce such things, bordering on
the miraculous, as are becoming al
most everyday occurrences in this land
of the free, says the Erie Herald.
A few days ago the press dispatches
announced that some fellow out in
Missouri had discovered coal. There
was nothing' so remarkable about the
fact that coal "had been discovered.
The remarkable feature of the case is
that this particular quality of coal
emits no smoke when burned. Ac
cording to the report, you could build
a fire of this coal in the center of your
parlor floor and be unable to find a
particle of smoke in the room. In the
words of' Col. Mulberry Sellers,
"there's millions in it."
But this truly strange case is per
haps outdone by one which is alleged
to have recently occurred in the salu
brious climate of California. The ve
racious chronicle ' states that some
thirty, years ago one John liahler, then
residing in Wisconsin, lost his eyesight
and subsequently had both eyeballs
taken out, the end of the optic nerve
being left as a stub in each case. Right
here is where the wonder comes in.
Don't miss it. About a year ago. at
his home in Fresno, Mr. liahler sud
denly saw the light of a lamp placed
opposite to him on the other side of
the room, and the examination showed
that new eyeballs were growing on the
ends of the optic nerves..
Since that time his sight has grad
ually improved, until now he can shoot
a rifle with considerable accuracy, and
hopes soon to be able to see how the
foreigners pay the tariff tax.
Indeed, this is a great country, and
isn't anywhere near" developed yet.
Carp milk cows and steal chickens and
green corn right here m Pennsylvania,
but the boundless west contains still
greater possibilities than the east, and
if old Lurope can produce any such
wonders or special newspaper corre
spondents let her trot 'em out.
