SLEUTHING FOR TAXES.
AS THE annual time for the andr-nt and honornnlr rite of
awearing off tnxee comes around again it it interesting to
learn that the personal tax bureau ha been keeping an
eitra sharp eye out thil year for juicy, taxable citizen, to the end
that their contribution to the tfuroll may be made to mm pond j
somewhere within a thousand miles to the amount of their actual I
The burean has waked np to the fact that the only methods
trret accomplish anything nowadays are the indu tire-psych olngical-super-detectire
rariety. So if yon have an automobile with a num
ber on it, or if your name n in the social directory and the corpora- I
tion blue books, or if the newspapers haro droppod hints of your
financial ten-strikes, legacies and what-not, you can be pretty anro j
your name is in the new card index from which the tax bureau com-1
pflea its latest rolla. ' !
By eiraply reasoning that people who show marked Hgns of pros-
perity are worth looking up for taxation purposes the bureau has
:idded $30,000,000 to its personal property assessments this year
more than donhle the increase of last year over the one preceding. 1
Self-erident tmiams of justice and common sense hnre a way of
becoming fat and aluggiah for want of exercise. That the people who
ought to hear most taxing are those who have the biggest margin
of income over and above the ordinary needs of life is as plain as
a primer. Yet the swearing off of taxee by those best able to pay
them is s joke so old that the public has become almost attached to
it If the tax bureau has found new ways of tracking these shy
snd retiring hoards to their laira good for the tax bureau.
We can't here too many of the best brains nt work on onr
mighty problem of devising legitimate ways to get money out of
the people who can pay and ought to pay, but just naturally won't.
You wiu. be EMEAuTlFUL.
HOW LONG SHALL WE LIVE?
rE DIE TOO YOUNG," says Dr. Wiley and scalds ui for '
being content with an average life of forty-four year-.
"There ia historical evidence to chow thnt man's great!
est activities arc developed with experience and that the age between
nxtv and, seventy is more productive for one who has lived in accord ;
KOOt with nature. I would like to see more men mid women with
yrtj hair and more wrinkled faces than I see to-tluv."
All right, Doctor. But where shall we stop? Most of the
fnn of being treaty nowadays is that it isn't so biassed common,
and the experience and wisdom of a few of us at that age gives us
the right to lord it over the crowd of young fellows. Hut if you
cet everybody living to three score and ten, sages of seventy will
be as plentiful as huckleberries, and the. only really wise and vein rabli
srill be a few sturdy old fellow of a hundred or so who can discount
the sniurtness of boys of seventy.
Experience, like some other tilings, getl mofc Valuable Ihfl leas

raised a i-tonn of wrath by adding a bald "Bread nnl !

liar ami the Chronometer adapttnl from the early Chinese.
On the skipper' expense account after a long voyage ioim1 fori!
boldly the item : "Oue chronometer. . . .$Hl." The owner tamped and
swore and vowed it waste and extravagance. The skipper blinked
and said nothing. Some yeara laicr the skipper came home with
another long expense account, "lla!" oaOUnanted the owner grimlv
after he had checked off the itfins. "No chronometer this time. '
"Ifs there," said the skipper simply, "but ye don't see it."
