We noticed a short time a boast in the county papers of the splendid collection of taxes in this county; at the same time the delinquent tax list is lor.g. This teaches us two things: First, that too much tax is assessed; second, that in the present stress, many are not able to pay their taxes. We notice, too, that our authorities instead of introducing economy, begin at to spend cur hard earned, extorted, with a lavish hand.

But Not So Bad if You Know How to Reach the Cause Nothing more discouraging than a constant backache. Lame when you awaken, pains pierce you when you bend or lift. It's hard to work or t rest. Backache often indicates bad kidneys. Fairmount people recommend Doan's Kidney Piils,. Ask your neighbor. Read this ease: Mrs. S. Cox.
