The auditor* heartily join in recom
mending that hereafter arcounts which

neither use nor sense in carrying forward,
from year l<> year, account# that are en
lirelv worthless. .
We understand that there are duplicate*
outstanding a# far back a* 1872, given out
to men wbo were worthlos* and without
security being taken. If such is the case
they should bo set out as uncollectabie,
and tho people given to know exactly

The auditors suggest that the commis
sioners keep their books In a more simple
manner. The difficulty of which we com
plain seem* Us arise through a multiplicity
of books, and a lack of system in properly
classifying entries or subject* in tbem. A
little more care in thi* direction will be
profitable, save time and and the
account* will be more readily understood.
