ScEKE IN THE TAX COLLECTORS
Office. An old negro woman went
into the taz collectors office a few days
back to pay her tax. The amount
was much larger than she expected,
md she asked the collector please to
call over the items upon vhich she
had to pay,. He complied and ' began,
-one house and lot, special jail tax,
household furniture &c . She said all
was correct ex'Jvfptthe, "so forth," and
the Lord knows she. never had to -pay
any ' o forth' tax before, and it did
roaily give her the palptertation of the
heart. She draw forth from her pocket,
an old stocking tied up with Hire1
yards of old rag strings, and paid the
amount and departed, shaking off the
dust from her feet as she left.
