By ARTHUR W. DUNN.
Washington. Feb. a-tSpeclaLJ-If a
sufficient number of states act favor
ably upon the constitutional amend
meat for an income tax It Is believed
, that an Income tax provision will be
Incorporated In the tlrst tarlft bill the
Democratic house paasea In the Sixty-
' , second coDtroaa, whether It Is a sched
ule revision or an entire tariff bllL
Whatever else may be done, it la an
assured fact that aa loug aa the Demo
crats control and have the power they
will make the income tax a. iwrt of
any revenue measure. . It b known
that Insurgent Kevubllcnus will help
pat an Income tax through the senate.

gathered to pay her the hist respects.
After the funeral they sat in the front
room, which she had used as a parlor,
and flstened In alienee to the reading
of the brief will.
The lawyer, Mr. Rhodes, polished his
eyeglasses and adjusted them to hU
long nose. - "AbemP he sal J loudly.
Of coarse yon all participated la tb
generous distribution of Mrs. Morc-iu's
household furniture some- twenty odti
years ago? ' "
"All the furniture In these two room:

Thomas Ine waa the only one who
vouchsafed an acknowledgment of this
tribute to the defunct bird. She never

the lawyer, referring to the wtlL "Tour

"I thought there was some money,'
remarked George Giles, robbing a sun

the lawyer tersely, . banding around
duplicates of the document "Ton may

Morgan especially emphasizes the fact
that each article and all It contains la

She also suggests tbst the distribution

big first choice. This, I think, would
be very proper."
"Very well," said Ann Squires eager
ly. She was the firstborn among
them. The others signified assent with
more or less satisfaction according to
age. Thomaslne Wells felt very help
less somehow. She would have liked
to choose the mahogany wortc table. ' It

Thomaslne as each one arose and be

Now they were busily peering and

nothing but dust In the vsses. and- the
bureau contained naught save a col
lection of soap coupons. There was a
dead wasp In the clock, while the
work table contained many sewing ma

Thomaslne might need the work table.
They parted later, and the next morn

work. ' Ten days later the legacy came

stuffed parrot- on his perch. Thomas
lne placed the parrot on tho stand and
stood them near the mantelpiece and

a homeless cat which she fed and
warmed by tho .kitchen stove. After
awhile the cat wandered Into the little
aittlng room, and when be saw the
green parrot .aittlng on tho perch he
snarled angrily and flew at the unof

bright feathers and the stuffing was

Thomaslne picked op the body of the
bird and wondered If she might not re
