After that time their accounts will be placed in the hands of an officer.
Those due assessments are notified to pay the same, or they will get no prorata

TAYLOR at the Bank. BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Thanks to Mr. Louis H. AWALT for that big rib which he informed us was
taken from a Poland China hog, 9 years old, weighling 500 lbs. Who now says
that Gregg County is not able to raise its own hog, as well as its own hominy?
On last Thursday evening we saw a huge monster, in the shape of a hog
put on the scales in this place which grossed 560 pounds. It was of the
Poland China variety, two years old and raised by our enterprising friend,,
Mr. Wm. C. HOLLOWAY. As it now stands, Louis and Billy are the boss hog men
of Gregg County.
