the dominion of Canada. Since that
time she has not heard of him.
She also alleges crrelty and abuse,
that he drove her from home and
threatened to shoot her and at one
time shot one of the cows for the pur-
pose of injuring her property. The
petition is long and the story of abuse
a most shameful one. She asks the
restoration of her maiden name Taylor.
Brady Brown, register of deeds, filed
his fee report last Monday for the
month of November which shows that
the fees earned during the month was-
$648.UO. The salaries of the register
of deeds and his deputies for the month
was'$29S.08> leaving the net gain to
Lincoln county of $252,22. Under oifr
present law the register of deeds is on
a salary and all fees go te the county
treasurer, instead of the private pocket
of the register of deeds. Under the
economical management of Brady
Brown the expenses are reduced to a
point where the county enjoys a net
gain above expenses this month of
$148 was earned by the office of county
judge and the balan'ce $159.70 was
was earned by the sheriff. All these
fees go into the county treasury. On
account of county court having taken
so much time during the month, not
much time was left to devote collect-
ion, hence they were not so large as
the two proceeding months, but are
still much more than the expenses of
the office which was $368,00 for salaries
of the judge and clerks. The offiae of
county judge is far more than self sus-
The county commissioners met in
regular session at the court house Mon-
day. The claims against the county
were mostely considered and passed

much business of unusual interest until

The county treasurer has made a big
collection of taxes during the month of
November. He is still behind in the
matter of writing receipts on the re-
mittances by mail but expects to get
entirely up with the work in time to
m ike an apportionment by the middle
of the month. This will be a good,
substantial apportionment that will
greatly benfit the school districts. Un-
der the ruling of the attorney general
as handed to the county treasurer by
the state examiner and inipector, Mr.
Gayman will receive half tax up to the
first day of January with the penalty
on the half tax. After that date a
half tax can not be received, and a
penalty will be added to the whole tax.
Alice Forest filed her petition in the
district ttourt last Friday asking for a

have conceled their order requir-
ing the Frisco train to stop its

their action in rescinding their
order. We don't want their old
fast trains anyway.
