THE INCOME TAX.
Every person with an income of $4,000
per year and every business corporation
has to face the income tax of the tariff
bill. As showing what is considered a
person's income let us quote some items
from the law: '
Interests npon notes, bonds and other
securities ; profits realized within a year
from sales of real estate purchased with
in s year from sales of real estate pur
chased within two years previous ; in
terest received or accrued upon all notes,
bonds, mortgages or other forms of in
debtedness, whether paid or not, if
good and collectable, less' the interest
paid by such person during this year ;
all interest on bonds, notes or coupons ;
receipts from live stock, sugar, cotton,
wool, butter, cheese, pork, beef, mut
ton, or other meats ; hay, grain or other
productions of produce of the estate of
each person, less the amount expended
in the production of euch stock or pro
dace ; all other gains, profits or income
derived from any source whatever, ex
cept that derived in salary from the
The following deductions are allowed :
1. Necessary expenses to carry on
2. AH interest paid during the year.
3. All taxes paid during the year.
4. All losses actually sustained not
compensated by insurance or otherwise.
5. Debts ascertained to be worthless.
Another provision is that :
In computing the income of any per
son, corporation or association, there
shall not be included the amount' re
ceived from any corporation, company
or association if the tax of two per cent
has been paid Hpon its net profits of
each organization as required by law.
.The last clause given above would in
clude all employes or corporations, al
though not intended to do so. Every
corporation will be obliged to make a
eworn statement, in which it will be
forced to state :
1. Its gross profits.
2. Its expenses, exclusive of interest,
annuities and dividends.
9. The net profits without allowing
for interest, annuities or dividends.
4. Amounts paid for interest, annui
ties and dividends.
5. Every person who receives a sal
ary in excess of $4,000, and the amount.
The O. R. & N. Co. is endeavoring to
have its taxes reduced from $4,500 to
$4,000 per mile. Its claim for a reduc
tion is based upon the deterioration in
values caused by inability to earn in
terest on the amount invested. The
fact is no doubt true, but what is true
of the railroad is also true of every other
industry. The O. R. ot N. is certainly
getting rich just as fast as the wheat
grower or the stockman. If the assess
ment of one is reduced so should that of
the otUer be. This would prove gratify
ing to everybody were it not for the fact
that just so much money must'be raised,
and if all assessments were reduced, the
rae of taxation would have to be in
creased. The only question to be con
sidered in dealing with the company's
application is, "Is their assessment as
compared with that of the balance of
the property in the county, too high?"
The entire press of the state has had
something to Bay concerning the book
trust; each presuming that what the
other said was true. Now we do
not know anything concerning this
alleged octopus, and would like some
information. Who and what is the
American book trust. What do they
propose to do, and how do th'ey intend
to do it? We believe in having a good
selection of books, and then sticking to
them, and if we have not that kind
now, in the name of common sense why
haven't we? If the books selected by
the last batch of Bchool superintend
ents are no good, what ' guaranty have
we that another batch selected by the
present superintendents would be any
better. But in the meanwhile who
knows anything about the alleged
. The latest news from China is decid
edly interesting. , The Chinese troops at
Wiju are said to have mutinied. The
army is lacking in two things, one is
patriotism and the other ammunition.
At Wiju the troops mutinied and threw
away their arms, because they had no
ammunition. Peking is said to be in a
state of panic, the mention of the Japan
ese being sufficient to make the whole
city tremble. The Japs on the contrary
are full of fight and enthusiasm, and
that they will march on Peking is a cer
tain fact. China is already whipped,
her armies are demoralized and her
people in a state of terror. The next
month will show great things in the
If it is, it should be reduced ; if it is not,
it should be left as it is, or raised until
it bears neither more nor less than its
proper share of taxation. That $4,500
per mile is not an exorbitant assessment,
is a self evident fact, and especially is
this true when it is taken into consider
ation that the rolling stock is assessed
at only $750 per mile. tin computing
the amount of interest that must be
earned the value of the road is put at
several times $5,000 per mile, and it
should pay at least on thirty per cent of
President Cleveland has issued a
proclamation granting amnesty to all
Mormons who have violated the laws
concerning polygamy. The. president
gives as a reason for his action that the
church authorities have instructed their
people to obey the law and to cease the
practice of polygamy, and the president,
believing that the practice has been
abandoned, pardons all who have vio
lated the law.
The Florida storm, the particulars of
which are just becoming known, did a
great amount of damage to orchards and
orange groves, but fortunately no lives
were lost. The prediction of this storm
and the two days' warning given thoee
who lived within its area is the most
noteworthy thing the weather bureau
has ever done.
TIMES ARE CHANGED.
An Old Woman's Reflections on the Vir
tues of Long Ajzo.
"Law," said one of the wealthiest old
ladies in Clarke county, Ind., the other
day, according- to the Louisville Com
mercial, "girls are not what they used
to be. This is the first time that I have
been in town for thirty years, and I
had no idea that there was any such
carryings-on. Why, there is a man who
works for a livinfr at so much per week,
and his family has a carriage, and they
spend nearly everything he makes.
The dinners they have at their houses
are nicer than I have, and their chil
dren are dressed finer than any I ever
saw before. I reared fifteen children
myself, but none of them ever had such
clothes as those, children of this man
have. Still, all of mine now have good
farms and bank accounts, and g-o to
church, and try to be Christians. When
I was married my husband had a horse
and I owned a cow. They were all
that we had. We rented a place, and
now we not only own that place, but
several more in that neighborhood, be
sides some business property in Louis
ville. I have never worked hard, and
have enjoyed myself in a quiet way.
These people who are spending every
thing they get, and would bein a bad
fix if the husband were suddenly
thrown out of work, can hardly be
having a better time than I am, be
cause they must be continually worry
ing as to how long they can keep it up.
I am positively alarmed when I think
of it myself. These are the kind of
people that fill the almshouses. Every
body can save, unless there is sickness
in the family."
A THREE-EYED LIZARD.
One of the Most Striking Cariosities of the
"Speaking1 of lizards, the queerest!
one we have seen for a long time
reached us the other day from New
Xealand," suys a scientist in the Wash
liton correspondence of the St. Louis
iJlobe-Dc-uioerat. "It is ncru-jd the
"cyelopcan lizard' becauue it ha a third
eye on the top of its head. Ilc-.vcver, it
is not a. true lizard, but a tor; of con
necting link between thu lizards and
the turtles. The species 5.-. limitad to a
small island near l-'ew Zealand, and it
has been rendered r.lmor.t entirely ex
tinct by hogs with a taste for its ficsh.
It attains a length of three feet, but all
of the bi ones were eatou up long1 ago.
The third eye is rudimentary, buta dis
section of its structure, plainly reveals
the eye socket, the lens,, and a strand
of nerves connecting the visual tract of
"This eye is interesting chiefly be
cau se it corresponds to the third eye with
which every human being is provided.
The co-called 'pineal gland' is actually
an eye that has become rudimentary.
The gland is about the size and shape
of a pes, and is situated in the middle
of the head. Place the end of your
1'fiiger just above the bridge of your

ivcily behind that point five inches is

the structure of an eye. The ancients
supposed it to be the center of con
sciousness and the seat of the soul."
Cute Sayings Attributed to the Talka
There is no end to the stories about
parrots. We all doubtless member
the cheeky bird at the parrot show,
which, uncovered last of all among the
competitors, placed his head knowing
ly on one side, and ejaculated: "My
eye! what a lot of parrots!" of course
securing the prize. A Boston man has
a parrot that puts its claw before its
face, and shyly croaks: "Polly had a
letter this morning an offer of mar
riage for Polly!" and a Philadelphia
parrot earnestly adjures the children
to "Hurry up to 6chool last bell is
ringing you'll be late!" Another poor
parrot was owned by a young man who
tried to teach it to welcome a rich rela
tive with the words: "Good morning,
uncle!" The bird was slow to learn,
so he lost his temper, took the bird by
the neck and shook it, exclaiming, an
grily: "Say "good morning, uncle,' you
fool!" The ' next day the young man
heard a terrible noise in the hennery.
On making his way there, he found
three hens dead on the .floor, while on
a perch in the corner was the parrot,
holding a hen by the throat, and shriek
ing: "Say 'good morning, uncle,' you

A Little Daughter
Of a Church of England minister
cured of a distressing- rash, . by
Ayer'a Sarsaparilla. Mr. Richard
Birks, the well-known Druggist, 207
McGill St., Montreal, P. Q., says:
I have sold Ayer's Family Medicines
for 40 years, and have heard nothing but
good said of them. I know of many
performed by Ayer's Sarsaparilla, one
in particular being that of a little
daughter of a Church of England minis
ter. The child was literally covered
from head to foot with a red and ex
ceedingly troublesome rash, from which
she had suffered for two or three years,
in spite of the best medical treatment
available. Her father was in great
distress about the case, and, at my
recommendation, at last began to ad
minister Ayer's Sarsaparilla, two bot
tles of which effected a complete cure,
much to her relief and her father's
delight. I am sure, were he here to-day,
he would testify in the strongest terms
as to the merits of
