Cry, "It Isn't too late to save you.
We know just how to get you' out of
the cage we'll show you and "we'll
h,elp you."
But the little mouse, though he had
only a few crumbs to eat that day
still thought it was better to stay
where he was because he knew he
would get something to eat some
times, and foraging for himself was
more risky.
And so the wise mice grew dis
couraged and let him alone. , And
each day he grew more weak. He
hadn't any pleasure, he hadn't any
exercise and he was only fed occa
sionally. But no matter how weak
he was, everytime his human master
stuck a stick in the cage he had to
run and run until he wabbled from
side to side and that made his mas
ter laugh.
x But one day he couldn't wabble
any more. He was starved, not only
Starved In his body, but in his mind,
and he was so terribly hopeless. How
he yearned with all of his little heart

inced them he did not want to be
let free, and so they left him alone.
"Run, darn you, run, his little
luman master cried, as he pushed
the stigk through the cage. But the
little mouse couldn't run any more.
He just crouched against the 'cage,
land he asked so piteously with his fit-
tie sunken eyes: "Please ,give. me
something to eat. I have' run and
amused you until I haven't any more
strength, and you have neglected me,
you have forgotten to feed me you
never cared whether I ate or not so
Jong as I ran when you told me to.
Please be merciful."
And the human master said: "If
you can't run any more, you can
starve to death."
Yes, the little mouse starved to
death.

vTAXATIONSYSTEM TO BLAME
By Gilson Gardner.
How to check the exodus of the
American farmers from the Missis
sippi valley and the Pacific coast to
Canada is a problem which is de
manding the-serious attention of im
migration authorities in Washington.
The root of the trouble appears to
tie in- the taxation system. Canada
imposes less burdensome taxes on
improvements while in the United
States the settler is penalizd for de
veloping and improving the land. The
remedy will no doubt be found in the
untaxing of improvements as is done
by Tax Commissioner J. J. Pastorizo
in Texas and the Minnesota Tax
Commission in the Northwest. These
are following the example of the
Canadian 'government and the au
thorities in British Columbia.
