When a cake la nicely frosted and it's
jmt away for tea
And It looks as trim and proper as a
chocolate cake should be,
Would H ptisile yon at evening as you
brought It from the ledge
To find the chocolate missing from ita
smooth and shiny edge?
As you viewed the cake in sorrow
would you look around and gay.

ould you take Bad's explanation that
it must have been the mice?
Oh, I'm sorry fos the household thut
can keep a frosted cake
Smooth and perfect throuKh the day
time, for the hearts of them
For It must bo very lonely to be living
In a house
Where tho pantry's never ravaged by
a glad ten-fingered mouse.
Though I've traveled far past forty,
I confess that I, myself.
Even now will nip a morsel from the
good things on the shelf,
And I never blame the youngsters who

For the tiny little samples "Which ex

THE FLAG THEY FOLLOWED
THERE is particular fitness in the fact that the G. A. R. en
campment is in session on Flag Day. The veterans now
here followed the colors, not when the nation was united
against a foreign foe, but when the country was divided and dis
tressed by civil war. It was American against American and at
times brother against brother and father against son. It was
an unhappy time, more so than we of this generation can real
ize. It was a time when a man's patriotism was put to the acid
test There were many good people who looked upon this coun
try so lightly that they thought it should be divided. They
fought for secession. Had those men won out the American re
public would have been destroyed and it could have no longer
held the torch of freedom aloft. That they did not succeed in
tha rebellion was due to the valor of the loyal sons who stood
with Lincoln and the "Star Spangled Banner." Hats off to them !
; t m
j HOW COME?
IN its report the executive committee of the American Federa
tion of Labor recommends that the excess profits tax be re
pealed and that a general sales tax be substituted therefor.
Certainly this is a remarkable suggestion to come from a la
bor organization. The excess profits tax is intended to tax
heavily those who make extraordinary profits and it does. There
is for instance one Oregon corporation dealing in a stable pro
duct, that made a wonderful lot of money in 1920 and this year
had to pay an excess profits tax of a cool million. But why
should not such a corporation be taxed heavily? Is not the law
in direct keeping with the theory that the tax should fall heav
iest Upon those most able to meet it? On the other hand a gen
eral sales tax would hit a man even though he might be forced
to sell his product at an actual loss. The wheat farmer would
be taxed on his turnover though he might have to sell his crop
at less than the cost of production. Where is there any fairness
in that" ultimately the general sales tax would fall upon the
consumer, not upon wealth and the net result would be to in
crease prices. Does the union labor man want a tax law that
will stimulate prices on the things he buys at a time when the
level of wages is falling?

GENERAL BUSINESS CONDITIONS
THE general business situation has changed but little in the
past month, but certain developments have taken place
that afford a substantial basis for better feeling. The most
notable of these is the acceptance by Germany of tie findings
of the reparation commission and the terms of settlement based
thereon. ' This has averted the strain and uncertainty that would
have resulted from an invasion of Germany by allied troops, and
probably will result in a considerable reduction of the standing
army of France, besides leading to a quickening of industry in
Germany and a more settled feeling in aii Europe.
The elections in Italy which took place on May 22d yielded
results encouraging to the stable elements of society. Although
the coal strike in England has not been settled and the industrial
situation is very serious from lack of fuel, the efforts by the rad
ical element to make the strike the focus of a revolution have
In this country the railroad labor board has followed up its
f ction in releasing the railroads from th'e costly national agree
ments with the labor organizations, made while the roads were
under government control, with an announcement that prevail
ing conditions justified a downward revision of wages, and a
decision as to the amount of such reductions in the cases before
it would be rendered June 1st, reductions to take effect July 1st.
Other complaints are now being filed, and it is assumed that the
revision will extend to the entire railroad pay-roll and that it
M ill result in a material degree of relief to the railroad situation.
The trend of wages has continued slowly downward, the
United States Steel Corporation falling into line during the
month with a reduction of 20 per cent. In this case and gener
jv ly the situation has been accepted by the workers in good spir
it as a necessary readjustment to changed conditions.
The trend of prices has continued downward, but apparent
ly the bottom has been reached with the principal staple com
modities. Wheat has had a rise which if sustained will be of
material benefit to the farmers, and the other grains have ad
vanced slightly. There are some symptoms of improvement in
foreign markets for cotton goods, and now that the peace settle
ment has been made there is hope that with a settlement of the
British coal strike the dead-lock in world.trade may be broken.
The whole situation is abnormal, as there is under-consumption
in all countries for want of the products that are unsaleable -From
the National City Bank Review.

Less of Appetite, That Tired Feel

Thousands take Hood's Sarsapa
rilla as a spring medicine for that
tired feeling, nervous weakness,
impure blood and say it makes
them feel better, eat and sleep bet
ter, and "makes food taste good."
Spring debility Is a condition In
which It is especially hard to com
bat disease germs, which invade
the system -here, there and every
where. The white blood corpuscles,
sometimes called "the little soldiers
in the blood," because it is their
duty to fight disease germs, are too
weak to do good service.
Hood's Sarsaparilla. strengthens
he "little soldiers" and enables
-them to repel germs of grip, influ
enza, fevers and other ailments;
relieves catarrh and rheumatism.
It has given satisfaction to three
generations. Get It today, and for
