that could not be understood.
When told to speak louder, the
porter said very slowly and cau
tiously, "Ain't you the man that
bottle of whiskey . in the sleeper
belongs to." The preacher was
somewhat surprised dtid replied
in a loud voice that he.1 never
owned any whiskey. ''Why," he
added, "do I look like the man."
"Yes," : said, the porter, , as he
backed toward the door, ."you
looks, mightily , like him." The
Doctor enjoyed the joke very
much and joined those in the car
who kne.iv him, in a hearty laugh.
Shortly afterwards he remarked
something about "we men with

Sheriff of Rockingham "Cannot Sell
- "dnl r March . 15th The North
Carolina Supreme Court
. So Decides.
'he Sun mentioned some time
that the ' sheriff of Rock-

county had taken a test
caf or the aeimauent tax law to
This is a
matjer of much importance to the
taxpayers of Rowan. It will also'
be fcmembered that Sheriff Mon
roeJiiBportedjI in accordance with
thefUw, at the recent term of the
Snperior court here, all those who
hadfuot paid their taxes.
f li Supreme Court, on Tues
5ovember 30th, decided the
Rockingham case as follows:
"",4Xhat defendant in this lease is
notjBdictable for failure , to pay
taxes under the late afct of the As
sembjy, since the county of Rock-r
inghm is excepted from the gen
eral provisions of the Revenue law
as to yhe time when taxes may. be
collected by distraint and sale.
The sheriff "of that county cannot
sell property for taxes until the
15th "day t)f JIarch, and hence the
defendant could not be lawfully
indicted for non-payment of his
taxes .before that; time."
This will, probably settle the
matter for. all the counties in the
State. i. .-
