OXE WAY TO ISEAT TAXES
To give an Insight how the war
yoke 1b shouldered on the common
people the mil estate bearing in St.
Paul provides an apt illustration.
Seven of the Hill heirs ask that the
Ni.rthwtstern Trust Co. he made ad
adliUnistrator. L. W. Ililf chair
man of the Great Northern objects,
asking that he be made administra
tor. The court asks for his qual
ifications. He cite that at the be
ginning ol unit the revenue from
his mother's estate was $1000
day. He increased it to $2000 a
day by selling or Interchanging the
taxable securities for non-taxable
securities. How many such eases
do you suppose there are in the
I'nited States? When will congress
wake up to this leak? it should bi
corked. Would it provide a solution
for the soldier bonus? Wonder what

Public highways have hern Im

now breaking down from fast hur

dig. Then he,d feel better. Why
not dig the good things out of life
