The County CommiNsloners full Of
The County Commissioners met
Monday to hear complaints about
the assessment of real estate.
It appears that it was understood
by many that the values were to be
cut down 20 percent. In some town
ships this was done; in others the
cut was greater and still others the
cut was not more than 3 per cent.
This, as is readily seen, does not
equalize the burdens over the county.
In No. 6 the assessed value of real
estate is not cut down more than
$2,000 in the aggregate, while in No.
8 the decrease is about $35,000.
This is the matter that held Lhu
attention of the Commissioners on
Monday and Tuesday. They want
to distribute the burdens of taxa'ion
over the county in equal measures.
They, the Commissioners are con
servative and just men, and whatever
they do, will be right so far as they
are able to make it.
A Very Sad Man.
A Standard reporter met up with
Rev. Dr. O M Payne, whom everyn
body in Concord, knows and esteems.
All know him to be a gentleman of
warm and tender heart. The re
cent affliction and trouble that was
thrust upon him by the untimely
and cruel death of his brother, to
whom he was bound by the closest
and strongest of ties of brotherly
love and devotion, has told upon
him to such a degree that a mere
acquaintance can see a big change
'Tis, indeed, sad, and this writer
when seeing him and meeting him,
was never more touched by the sad
ness and trouble of this man of God,
one who has always been a strong
and deep sympathizers of others in
Dr. Payne has in the people of
Concord a profound and sincere sym
pathizer in this, his hour and time
of great sorrow and pain.
Lo cunt b Passed Ovei the City.
Early this (Tuesday) morning the
attention of many of our citizens
was attracted by the buzz of some
winged insects passing over the city,
going direct east. Not until late in
the day, however, did we learn what
they were, when several planters
from the Cold Water bottom section
en the Mt. Pleasant road told a re
porter that a swarm of locusts had
struck the woods in Lipe's pasture.
They say the song of these gauze
winged bugs can be heard for several
