Ma. Editor : I ask the privilege of your
columns, to have little chat with my fellow-
oitizens of the county of Davie, about the
estern Kail Koad, I am a railroad man
and in favor of all practicable schemes of in
ternal improvement. I have Do objection to
the building of this Road, provided it is done
by the State, or by private subscription ; but
I am opposed the proposition to subscribe
$t.0,(MM by the county. This proposition, in
my opinion, is not only impracticable but ab
solutely preposterous, ft is said by the
friends of this Road that it is to run from
Salisbury via Mooksville to Wilkesboro
Now we have do assurance of that. The
proposition of the Commissioner offers no
such assurance. The Charter of the Road
gives noue. Then I ask, what assurance
have we. that the money itrung from the
people by oppressive taxation will eveu be
expended in the county 7 or that it will not
be expended out of the county 7 Emphati
cally none. By reference to the map. you
will see that the most direct r ute from Salis
bury to any point in Wilkes (uuty will
pass west of Hunting creek, so thia money
may be expended between the North and
South Yadkin rivers, as the Charter pro
vides, and yet not benefit the people of Da
vie one farthing. But suppose this Road
does pass through Mocksville, then 1 hold
that it is impracticable; because we are abso
lutely unable to bear the additional burden
of taxation which it will impose upon us.
Many of you have been murmuring this year
about high taxes' Your taxes for the pres
ent year, amounted, if I mistake not, to be
tween four and five thousand dollars.
This year, there has been no speeial tax
levied to support the Common "Schools.
There was no tax levied to pay the interest
on the old State debt, Davie county's share
of which will amount tc at least ten thous
and, dollars, annually. Add to this the
$4,0U0 actually paid and yon have 14,000.
The special tax which will have to be lev
ied to carry out the pi ovisions of the ( !out i
tution for Common schools, cannot fall short
of $2,000 per annum. Thia makes (16,000
and the f 4,000 interest on the county bonds
added to the debt already hanging over us
will make the snug little sum of $20,000
which you will have to fork out annually;
amounting to more than $1.1 per head to
every voter m the county. Many of the
voters pay no tax a all, many more pay only
a foil tax. So it ia easy to see where this
money is to come from. Your Homesteads
are exempted from all other claims ; but lay
this burden upon your shoulder) and yon
will soon see your Homesteads pass away
and be numbered among the "tbiugs that
were a schtwlboy's dream the wonder of an
hour." Nothing is exempt frotn taxes, re
member that. If you could lay this tax- npon
the Poll, it would only have the effect to
drive the loose population from the county,
and still leave the demand to be satisfied by
You are told that this Road will enhance
the value of your land, increase the price of
produce, and make labor higher, suppose it
does, what will that benefit you: I he la
borer may get a little higher wages, but he
will pavproportiiiably higher for his provis
ion:. The farmer may get a lit'le more for
his produce; but his gain will be more than
counterbalanced by the additional tax npon
his land. Thus both laborer and farmer will
find that their hopes are ilusory, and that by
supporting this proposition to tax the peo
ple, they simply riveted, upon themselves,
the chains of the bondholder, and doomed
themselves and their children to perpetual
slavery, If h s road enhances the value of
your land, that is no advantage to you, un
less you want to sell out. It adds nothing to
its fertility and consequently nothing to its
productiveness and intrinsic value. In con
clusion, follow-cit sens. I ask yon to pause
and count ihecost, before you make the fa
tal step, that will plunge you into repudia
tion or bandmptcy. - TAX PAYER.

Koskoo cures Scrofula in its worst form.
From A W If ills, a prominent and Weil-known
merchant of Norfolk, Va. :
No. 11 Main Street, Norfolk, Va., )
September IS, 1869.
Dr. Lawrence Dear Sir : Tour Koskoo has
worked wonders in my family. My daughter
has been a sufferer from Scrofula since child
hood. She lost thirty-one pieces of bone from
ber ankle, several from her arm, besides having
ulcers in several parts of the body. Whilst in
this condition she commenced taking your
Koskoo it acted like a charm on her under
its use the ulcers gradually healed, and her gen
eral health greatly improved, it certainly
saved ber much suffering, and perhaps her life.
I regard Koskoo a specific lor all scrofulous af
fections. Tour Koskoo also cured my wife of
dyspepsia, froai which she suffered greatly.
She is now io better health than she has been
in five years.
With tbe highest regards, 1 am gratefully
yours, tve, A. W. Mills,
Koskoo, the great Invigorator. Read tho
following from tbe Rev. Joseph . Martin, pas
tor of Wesley Chapel, Portsmouth, Va.:
''This is to eertify that myself and wife have
used Dr. Lawrence e Koskoo, and can testify to
its beneficial effects. Previous to taking it we
were in a condition of debilitation bad no ap
petite, and suffered from sudden and often vio
lent attacks of headache and nervousness. Two
bottles of Koskoo has improved our general
health,, and we regard it as invaluable, and
moat cheerfully recommend it to all who bare
need of invigorator. Tours, Ac,

my ffratitode. I had tried almost everything
without benefit. I believe, in sll sincerity, tbst
yonr Koskoo is an Infallible Remedy for tbo di
sease irom wbich he bas suffered, and, so tar
as I can learn, bat never failed. If yon only
knew the immense amount of suffering thai he
has undergone, that yon could conceive the
value ol such a remedy as Kosko thai surely
cures. Tbe great amount ol good li is now do
ing among us is inestimable.
