There Is no more pernicious sophis
try than this widely prevalent theory
about "easy money," for It strikes
human nature at Its weakest point,
says a writer on the Kansas City
Journal. People who could not he
tempted to commit a crime will jump
at the chance to get something for
nothing, and many who might not be
too scrupulous but would shrink from
a heinous offense are no proof against
the seductlona of "easy money." The
psychology of this weakness msy or
may not go back to tbe garden of
Eden and the primal cars of toll.
Certain It Is that there Is an Inherent
revolt in human nature against the
drudgery of earning bread In tbe
swest of one's brow. Normally con
structed people combat this rebellious
spirit through tha human affections
which ennoble toll and consecrate the
hardest tasks to the comfort of loved
ocas. Bat there are few people who
work very hard for tha sheer love of
working hard.
"Easy money" Is tha dearest and
hardest la the world; It Is gained at
a fearful prfca, whether U Is tha booty

He pays a tax on every servant
He pays a tax when he dies or his

"Americans have little Idea of the
various taxes that are Imposed In
England." says a writer on the sub
ject "If you are a renter and pay,
say $300 a year rent, you would be
obliged to pay not less than $90 addi
tional, which would cover the light
ing, paving and police protection. But
richer people are caught In all sorts
of ways. For Instance, In England I
would pay $5 a year for the privilege
of wearing this ring. It carries a
crest and If I had a carriage with
armorial bearings upon It I would be
obliged to pay $10 a year for that
privilege. When a man dies his estate
must pay a tax of 1 per cent on every
thing, if his estate Is below $2,500
In value: 2 per cent on $5,000, 3 per
cent on $50,000. 4 per cent on $125.-

cent on $225,000, 5 i per cent on $500,

on $1,250,000, 8 per cent on $2,500,000.

The Wright airship haa no wheels, but a set of wooden runners like a
sleigh. These travel upon a rail, and the Initial Impetus is given to the
machine by the release of a weight which runs over a pulley In a wooden
tower. The descent of the weight makes the airship fly off In a direction
away from the tower. Tbe Impetus causes It to rise a little, and afterward
