        Tax Collectors C. R. Nettles and T. W. Schliestett made their final report last week, several days in advance of the time set by law, and their report was duly approved by the Comptroller General.  One district - Blooming Grove - had no tax defaulters at all, and in every district the collections were unusually good.

The Camp McClellan Band

One of the most highly appreciated features Saturday of the Liberty Bond Rally was the splendid music of the band which came from Camp McClellan to help us out.  When it was found that the promise of a regimental band from Camp Gordon could not be kept.  Messrs. A. W. Stubbs and R. H. Jones made a quick trip to Anninston in a car Friday, and made arrangements for the Artillery Band to come over.
        The band came, thirty strong, and delighted our people both as musicians and gentlemen.  They were entertained in homes of a nuber of our citizens, and greatly enjoyed their stay here.  An informal reception was enjoyed in their honor Saturday evening at the Cedartown Club.
        As a token of their appreciation of Cedartown hospitality, the boys stayed over Sunday, assisting in the music at the churches in the morning, and in the afternoon giving a fine scared concert on the courthouse grounds.
