'! - r,
Octling Vmie Is best. I say!
Though it's fun to so away.
And there'll pleasure in a trip
Overland or on a ship, ' '
Taking on to splendors new,
Aftr all the journey' through,
iMnkea no difference where you ronm,
There's no thrill like getting home.
Maybe with a thumping heart
Tou look forward to the start.
And you think you'll never get
Quite enough of travel, yet'
After you have journeyed far
Where the nation's wonders are.
Soon you'll find you hunger for
All the folks nt home oiu t more.
A'ou may laimh nnd sinct and shout
As you wander, in and out,
Moeilutf new friends everywhere, -See;s
glories here and there.
l;ut these joys at last will pall
And you'll wish above it all
Kor that happiest moment when
You'll be starting home UKain.
Trips are glorious things to take,
J iui rneys everyone should make,
There are ulaces good to be,
Mtu-h the eye of man should see,
Kut no matter where you go.
This you'll surely come to know
Host thing trains can do in when
They get you back again.

HOW THE SALES TAX WOULD "RELIEVE" THE FARMER
THE chief reason why a lot of people abhor the income and
excess profits taxes that then have to pay them Not al
ways can they pass these burdens on to the other fellow.
The evidence in the divorce case of James S. Stillman, New
York financier, shqws that last year Mr. Stillman paid a very
high federal tax. It was in six figures. He had to pay that tax.
There was no escape ; no passing the buck.
Men like Mr Stillman dontlike that sort of a tax law. In
their view the salea or turnover tax is much preferable. They
say it is much simpler. It is. The sales tax is simplicity itself
and is an admirable scheme from the standpoint of those who
want to shift the burden all to the ultimate consumer.
Under a sale stax law niost men in "big business" would pass
the tax along to the next fellow. Big business would gain but
the consumer would pay. The consumer would be the goat and
the retailer is the man the goat would vent his wrath upon. Peo
ple would think the retailer responsible for the increased prices
his product at an actual loss. There would seemingly be .no es
cape for him because he sells under conditions that do not per
mit him to pass the burden along. The income tax has this vir
tue from the farmer's standpoint no income, no tax. That vir
tue would be missing from a sales stax law. Profits or no prof
its thevfarmer would be taxed on what he sold and he would
have to pay the accumulated sales tax on everything he bought.
If the new administration wishes to "rescue agriculture" by
substituting a sales tax for the income and excess profits tax it
will indeed be some rescue, but the patient will need plenty of
rus if he is to stand such an operation without howling. .
rr HE man who dies leaving the world better or richer for his
having been of it has not lived in .vain.
John Burroughs belonged to that class and the world
is poorer for his dying but much richer for his having lived.i j
He was a high priest of Nature. He held communion with
her visible forms and to him as to Bryant she'spoke "a various
language." For his gayer hours she had "a voice of gladness
and a smile and eloquence of beauty" and she glided "into his
darker musings with mild and healing sympathy."
The fields and the forest were, to him an open book from
'.vhich he read with an understanding born of an innate love of
the great outdoors. The birds and the bee3 and the shyest of
animals were his friends and had no secrets from him. The
trees and the flowers he loved. The "primrose by the river's
brim" was more than a primrose to him. It was a thing of beau
1y with a soul, a purpose in God's great scheme, with a message
imd a mystery all invisible to the unseeing eye.
John Burroughs did more than enjoy the Nature he worship
ped. He helped others to understand and to enjoy. He trans
lated the language of the woodlands that others might know
their secrets and share their inspiration. He was gifted with a
simple, clear style of expression and the soui of a poet which
inake his writings literature rather than prosaic essays or scien
tific treatises. , There was a simplicity, a cleanliness and a
sweetness about his character and his life that somehow seem
to manifest that in living close to Nature he was living close to
