FRIDAY JULY 29. 1887
Ik another column is given an offi
cial statement o the condition of the
county's finances, consisting of. con
densed abstracts of reports of the
sheriff, treasurer and clerk. From
the treasurer's report vre find that on
the beginning of the fiscal year there
was on hand the sum of 15,791.99,
and that during the fiscal year just
ended there was paid into his hands
the sum of $50,231.40. During the
same time he paid out $55,971.03;
there is now cash on hand to the
amount of $10,055.34 Of this $10,
055.31, about half is applicable to pay
warrants; about 81,600 of it is held to
pay warrants long since advertised as
having hadinterest stopped on them,
but not yet presented; the remainder
is in the school fund and due in Sa
lem on state taxes of 188G.
Exhibit No. 3 is a very creditable
one to the county court According
to this the total expenses of the fiscal
year, ending July 1st, 1887, was a
little over $17,000, and included in
this, is $2,269 expense of putting the
court houso and county offices in
proper repair, which, according to the
report, would make the cost of run
ning the county for the last year, in
round numbers, $15,000. The items
in exhibit 3 show that the expenses in
several important details have been
kept down. The happy absence of
criminal trials, eta, at the sessions of
the circuit court, and the careful su
pervision of the circuit judge, has en
abled a modification of the. usual
heavy bills attending a session of the
court, and tho reduced expense bills
of other branches of the county serv
ice will be noted with gratified interest
by taxpayers.
Tho figures make it look as if by a
judicious continuation of economy
the county would sometime bo ena
bled to throw off the incubus of debt
which has been gradually augmenting
, and which has been and is grievously
felt in tiie comparatively heavy taxa
tion made necessary.
Eeference to exhibit 2 shows that
during tho year the treasurer has paid
$32,359.38, principal and interest of
county orders that were issued prior
to July 1st, 1886. This is a large sum
of money, but it is paid now, and that
much wiped out It would increase
the clearness of the report were it
possible to know just what amount of
indebtedness in the shape of county
warrants is still outstanding.
In a statement subjoined to the re
port the county court says that the
debt of the county at tho beginning
of the fiscal year of 1886-7, was over
$10,000 more than the report and es
timate made at the time, and that as
near as can bo estimated the present
debt of the county is over $52,000
this after paving in principal and in
terest over $32,000.
There is but one way to get out of
debt and that is by a continuance of
reduced expenses and provision for
the payment of the $50,000 and odd
still remaining.
It is but just to say that the judge
of the circuit court, the justices -of
the peace, and all the county and pre
cinct officers have co-operated with
the county court in this matter and
made the expenses of the year as near
the minimum as. possible. - It is only
by such co-operating on tho part of
the public as well as efforts of tho
officials that the county can get out
of debt During the year there has
been a reduction in principal and in
terest of over $20,000, tho most grati
fying exhibit we have been able to
chronicle for some time.
Economy is as necessary in tho
management of public business as
private business. The rejection of
unjust and outrageous claims, the
scrutiny and supervision of all de
mands, the wise direction of expendi
tures and the consciousness of how
rapidly unchecked expenses accumu
late, are matters familiarly necessary
to every business man in his every
day business. They are equally neces
sary to be borne in mind by those
who administer the public business.
Economy is not stinginess nor the
saving of money by not spending it
To save $5 or $5,000 by refusing to
spend it isn't economy. Economy is
only another name for good manage
ment If it is well to save five cents,
if the spending of five cents is not
necessary, save the five cents; that is
economy. If it is necessary or need
ful to Bpend ten thousand dollars,
spend it, pay it out at once; that is
economy. This is a fact generally
recognized and understood and in the
practical application of this economy
lies the solution of all financial diffi
culties and the attainment of prosper
ity, public and private. -
Indlgesion or Constipation.
A few HAMBURG FIGS are all
that is necessary for the cure of the
severest cases of indigestion or con
stipation, and one taken occasionly
will prevent the development of these

pared with the vouohers, reports and

mated at that time. The debt of the
