Under the present Tax Law, it you have your money in your pockets or out of bank on the first day of September, you will be taxed on it just like other property; but if you have it in bank on deposit the tax will be only 10 cents on the one hundred dollars. The Bank of Columbia expects to and will pay this tax for all'of Its customers on money deposited by them with it and will not charge the customers for doing so. That is to say if your money is on deposit in the Bank of Columbia, the said bank will pay the taxes on same and no charge will be made against the depositor on said money. So it seems to us wise in our customers to get their money in bank in time to save themselves taxes on same. Jno. W. Flowers, Cashier. Jo Henry Caldwell Dead.

The people are taking more interest In the selection of their officers than at any time in the past, and this speaks well for the future of the country. In the past- we have had too much politics and too little efficiency. At the coming November election the people will select the individual who will manage the public affairs of the several counties during the next four years. All the offices are important, and should be filled by the best qualified men, but the people as a whole, are more interested in tne County Superintendent and the County Assessor. The County Superintendent has gen eral supervision of the teachers, who will train and direct the young minds, and prepare the children of y for the duties of citizenship which must be met by them in a few years. If they are properly trained, the next generation will enjoy the fruits of the labor of the county superintendent, but if they are not properly trained the people will suffer. The life, the character and the training of the County Superintendent who serves during the next four years, will be a reliable sign board to the life, the character and the training of the next generation. We have a new tax law which must be administered by the new assessor. If the Assessor is a man of judgment, discretion and force of character, our property will be correctly assessed, and the Individual taxpayer will be protected when the State Tax Commission reviews the assessment, but If we have an assessor who is not qualified, who Is not familiar with property values and who is not competent to properly represent her people before the State Tax Commission the people will suffer. They will be forced to pay more than their just proportion of the burden of supporting the county and State govermeht. These two offices are nonpolltlcal. The Incumbents are close to the people and the people should select the individuals to fill them who will best serve their in, to-da- J - ' iiTiBarffMbwmt-usncz - Z- -l -- !

No one has spoken oftener or more strongly against indiscriminate plunging into any untried venture or against the taking of a gambler's chance on any crop or line of work than has the Southern Agriculturist, and the warning given still holds good. But an even greater mistake for a farmer to make just now would be for him to get scared and slacken his efforts or curtail his activities. The country is sound, business is safe, the demand upon you to carry on your business as usual, or more efficiently than usual, is overwhelming. Don't stop or puH back.

Farmers will be benefited by the lower State tax rate on Lands and Improvements from 55 to 40 cents on each $100 valuation and on Live Stock' from 55 to 10 cents for State purposes. Bonds, Stocks, Mortgages and Accounts will be exempt from local taxation; as will also Agricultural frnpiemehts; and Products grown within the year are exempt from all taxation. Money deposited in Bank will be taxed at- only 10 cents on the $lt)0, instead of 55 as heretofore. This will result In a large saving to taxpayers, who have been listing their property at a fair valuation. Merchants will have only State taxes to pay on their Notes and Accounts at the rate of 40 cents on each $100 and 10 cents on Bank Deposits. Other property, such as Real Estate, Merchandise, etc., is subject to State tax rate of only 40 instead of 65 cents. Manufacturers are exempted from local taxes on their Machinery, Raw Material and Product, Notes and Accounts and will be taxed for State purposes only on such property at 40 cents on the $100 and 10 cents on Bank Deposits On all other property the State tax is only 40 cents on each $100 and the local taxes as fixed in the localities where their business is conducted. Bonds, Stocks, Mortgages, Notes and Accounts are taxable for State purposes only at 40 cents on the $100 and exempt from local taxation. The State tax on Real Estate, Household Goods, Merchandise, Vehicles and other property owned by Individuals has been reduced from 65 to 40 cents; a reduction of 37 per cent. Additional Revenue to Justify the reduction and increase the State revenue is to come from Bonds, Stocks, Notes and Accounts; Mineral and Timber Rights and Royalties and by equalization of notoriously undervalued assessments, and as each class of property, no matter by whom owned, will be assessed and taxed uniformly, the advantage to taxpayers generally and the State at large win be very great. The State needs more revenue to meet the present deficit, and the Idea is to get more property to tax rather than to Impose more taxes on property now paying more than Its share, and under the new and more equitable laws this can be accomplished. The State Tax Commission is going about the work in the right way to subject every kind of property to Its fair share of taxation and correct the "evils heretofore existing whereby many property owners paid more than their Just due and others escaped entirely. The Commission la endowed with power to enforce the laws and bring the delinquents to a sense of their responsibility and obligation to the State, and every Taxpayer, Assessor and Supervisor should aid in securing for the State the successful operation of the new laws, which are fair and Just to all. Where accurate returns are made ajs of September 1st, the property owners will be immune from paBt omissions and delinquents may be proceeded against for ten years back, so there Is every inducement to comply with such Just and equable laws, and as the principles Involved aro worked out there will be further reductions in the tax rates, and In ,tlmo the entire exemption of land for. State purposes, as in other Stafes where the same laws are in practice. - TOWN PROPERTY Nine room two story dwelling and lot, situated on one of the best res dence streets in Columbia, near the square, barn and out buildings.
