out of that unpleasant position, the harness
gave way and the animal got loose from the
vehicle, and started for Benton at a rapid gait,
but in passing several teams got somewhat
checked nnd was caught. The buggy dah was
warped a little, that was tho only injury done.
An npplausibie scene occurred here, one day
last week, in Frank McIIcnry's trying to plough
a small garden patch with one horse. When
be would get to tho end and go to turn round
the animal appeared to be rather light behind;
&o he secured a good sized boy lo ride the
horso. But that did not better it at nil, and
whenever ho would go to turn, you could see
a couple of horse shoes shining pretty well up
from the ground, for about two minutes, nnd
during that ceremony there were about four
ncbes of daylight visible, ns near as I could
judge, between the boy and horse's back. It
raised quite an applause among the eye-witnesses
to the affair.
Mr. Jacob Dildine, who resides about two
miles from this place, while at Light Street
last week, tied his horse and went ill a house,

was caught belore having a chance to do much

as it is iu ailearing on the top of the mountain
it commanels a splendid view. The lake which
lies a few rods northeast ot the llottl is a pen
fret picture. It Is about 1 mile in length j of
a mile wide. Ihe water was "as clear as crys
tal," Ihe surface in mauy places .being covered
with white caps looking like iearlson the watei.
The managers (Messrs, Rickelta and Conner)
were very sociable and pleasant, making our
short stay vt-ry enjoyable. After dinner (whieh
was relished by all), and a ride onthe lake we
returned to our boarding place, The trip
down Ihe fclen was no less pleasant than the as-c.-nt
In the morning. After spending a very
eijojuble evening and night wo started lor
home on Saturday morning, A last look at the
pleasant place we were leaving reminded us
that we had spent a very pleasant time indeed
Our Irip home was a continuation of enjoyment.
Slopping at Benlon we were recelvesl by Mr.
and Mrs. Hess in Ihelr usual kind and welcome
All reached houie in safety, feeling perfectly
satislitel wilh Ihe trip,
'To enjoy life la mau'a greatest blessing."

The State Agricultural Hoard has Issued lis
edict prohibiting county agricultural societies
that receive the annual $100 Stale appropria
tion, from ofierlng premiums for horse racing.
There can be trials of speeel but no premiums
can be offcreel without losing the $100
appropriation. Under this slate ol affairs Ihe
Norlhumbethnd County Agricultural Society
will not offer any such premiums at Ihe fair
Ihey will bold at this lace next fall, but we
understand that a horse fair will be held Im
mediately by the soclely that will succeed the
defunct Union Park Association, at which
premiums will be ofiered for trials of speed.

HANK TAX ASSESSOHS ABOLISHED.
By the 10th section of the general revenue
act which passed In the legislature in the last
hours and, we believe, has become a law by the
governor's signature, the office of bank tax as
scssor is abolished. The auditor general wdj
hereafter assess bank shares. Tho president
or cashier ofeach bank will hereafter be requir
ed, on or before March 1st of each year, to re
port under oath to the auditor general slating
specifically Ihe.amount of capital stock, and the
amount paid in full, a complete list of shares
holders with their residence and the number and
par value of shares and local market value. A
duplicate of each hank's report must be filed
with the county commissioners. The auditor
general will then assess the shares by inquiring
into ihe value of the stock, and either abate or
increase the value of the same as may bejustjas
proper. In n case of neglect or refusal of any
bank officer to make report as above slated ten
per cenluru is added to the tax of his bank. It
is estimated that about $25,000 will be annually
saved to the stale, now that the office of asses
sor has been abolished.
