DEATH OF RICHARD SCOTT
A Sad, Sad Case.
The honorable board of Eaual-
ization was confronted with one
serious matter for consideration.
A gentleman from the rural dis
trict was assessed a year ago with
a horse, a cow and a pig which
assessment had been duly paid.
Perhaps to save time and ex
pense the present assessor conied
from last year. The gentleman
plead his own case by saying the
horse took sick, he called the yet-
rinary surgeon and the horse
died. , He sold the cow to pay !
the ' vetrinary and he killed the
pig to supply meat for the fam
ily. The eyes of the entire board'
filled, with juice, their hearts
b.i ed over with sympathy and
they ordered the assessment ex
punged from the roll. Tf von
