designs, is in the reach of the ordinary man.

Now, we are going to tell you about a hand
some pieco of furniture. Not only is this
Secretary Book Case pretty, but it is useful
as, well. On ono side you have adjustable
shelves that can bo made to lit any size book.
At the top of tho other sido is a lino French
Plate Bevel Mirror, below this is a complete
Writing Desk fitted out with holes, drawers
and other accessories necessary to a well
ordered desk and completed with a folding
shelf that can be let down when writing and
closed and locked afterword. Below tho desk
are three drawers that come in very handy
for holding writing material and odds and
that accumulate about a piece of iurni-

tho duty of all" tho tax payors in
this community to pay thoir in-'

Tho statement of tho linistor of
Financo clearly shows that tho
present revenue for tho forthcom

many, obnoxious army, tho sala

and tho interest on our loans.
This deficit is duo to tho iuciliciont
way in which tho taxes aro assess

closures of tho last thrco wcoks
show that the poor mnn tho small
tradesman, the mechanic and tho
Portuguoso aro and havo boon

monopolists, tho corporations and
tho largo real eBtato proporty
holders havo in numerous in
stances fraudulently evaded tho
just payment of taxes to a serious
extent. It necessarily dovolvos
upon tho wisolieads in tho Sonate
to moot this difficulty and thoir
method of action is plain to all:
namely, to press still hardor on
tho trading community and to

him of tho capital with which ho

many poor people from endeavor
ing to mako a start for themselves
and instead of assisting to mako
solf-si'pporting producors and
