SMITH WARNS TAXPAYERS lf School* are Matted Blame Matt Not Im Pm* OM County Superintendent of School* $2.00 a Year—5c a Copy And Attempt! I understand from food authority, that many of the taxpayers in Aiken County are giving in their property at a much lower value than it baa (been assessed heretofore. Of courae. the object in so doing is to have leas taxes to pay. With these people, let it be clearly understood that I have no quarrel at all. for it is none of my business whatever, how the property is assessed. No tint realises that fact more than I do; therefore, it does not enter into my thinking. There is one thing that does enter into my thinking and that is this-—I am afraid that when, as a result, our schools have to be closed or fail to open, that many people will be so foolish and unfair as to blame the Superintendent of Education. I feel that it ii my duty to Inform the general public that such action means that your school system is headed for the "rocks." Now) I beg you not to blame me for something you do yourself. Go ahead and do as you please, but do not he so wicked as to blame me for not putting across a half miHkm dollars job with a few nickles. The Legislature can make an appropriation to run the County Government and then, rf the assessed valuation of the property is un* half what it was last year, it can double the levy and thus raise the Suit «nd Pistol Taken From Baptist Minister.—No Ciao os Yot in Identity to Night Prowler, GUESTS—AIKEN’S NEW HOSTELRY A thief nonchalantly entered the home o-f Dr. P. J. McLean, Wednesday night, fried to sheer bunsen, discarded hia clothing, appropriated a complete change from the wardrobe of Dr, McLean and left the house, remembering to take Dr. Mc Lean'a pistol with him as he left. The theft occurred while the owner of the home was at the church and no clue was found which might establish the identity of the thief. He left a pair of overalls and a sweater which were very dirty and wellworn according to t hief M. L Kibler. This rogue is suspected of being the same one who stole the automobile belonging to Mrs. Hastings Wyman, Jr., and which was parked only a block away from Dr. McLean's house. H. C.

It is not my purpose to let the schools get thousands of dollars in debt and then try to make excuses. The ship is sailing lovely indeed now, but remember that the force of the wind will soon fail fifty per cent. Then what? It might be well for you to remember that many schools have heavy bonds to pay and according to contract with the bonding company, they arc to be paid on a certain date, school or no school.

There is complaint among th* tourers aa they are asked to contribute to people of whom they know noth* mg of. In many cave* the beggara are in need, and ver^ frequently they are crooks. With a view to stop all these abuses, Mayor Henderson has sent out a letter to the members of the cottage colony asking them to refer all beggars to Miss Woodson, the social welfare worker, and not to make contributions, unless they know of the needs of those asking for contribution*. This letter it endorsed by president of the Aiken I Hospital and Relief Society, presi-I*ut f the Civic I eaguc and president of the Chamber of Commerce.
