I KERNS' BIG WINTER CLEARANCE SALE
The country's k'Iii' to Hie deiuul
"What's the matter now, old iimuV
"Why, this Income tax Is mi out
race. They allow a married man u
$1.(100 exception nnd single man only
$3,000. We poor buclioloi-s arc doom
ed to live alone. We have no home, no
wife, no children. Our expenses are
necessarily higher tlir.u those of u
married man, who doesn't have to be
long to ii club and spend the money
that Is an essential of the bachelor
state. Notwithstanding all this. I,
who have an Income of $4,000. have
to pay a tax on $1,000. while the mar
ried man with the same amount goes
scot free. It's an outrage."
"If you prefer the married man's
place, why don't you take a wife?"
"By Jove. I believe I'll do It! Just
to get ahead of the government."
This dialogue took place between
Dick Ityerson and Arnold Thurston,
bachelors. In the Calumet club one
morning after the lirst publication of
the terms of the Income tax. The
complainant, Ityerson. though his In
come was all expended on himself,
had a hard time making ends meet,
and any reduction of the amount
whatever was liable to upset his
"In order to beat 'em," Thurston re
plied to the last remark, "you'll have
to marry a girl without more than
$1,000 n year. Anything over that will
be combined with your own Income
and must pay n tax."
"1 don't suppose the only girl In the
world I want has a cent of Income.
I can write her a note asking her
about It before I propose."
"That would be a brilliant scheme.
She would probably write back that if
you wanted her on n money considera
tion you could look elsewhere for n
"I won't put It that way. I'll tell
her that I don't wish my wife to have
any income at. nil. that she Is to rely
on me for everything, and If she has
no money It's a proposal: If she has, it
"Oh, yes; 1 see." doubtfully.
"Well, what ilo you see?"
When nu Idea gets Into the head of
a confirmed bachelor, especially as to
matrimony, no one can tell Just what
he will do. Mr. Ryerson did just wlmi
ho had said be would do nnd without
the expected fireworks. Miss Engle
heart. to whom he mado the singular
conditional proposition, was rather
pleased with It. She wrote the pro
poser that Mnce she came within his
conditions conditions which she con
sidered worthy of a manly man she
accepted his proposition.
The day after he received the ac
ceptance he met his friend Thurston
again at the club.
'Tib going to beat the government,"
"How?" asked Thurston, somewhat
"I'm going to marry a girl who has
nothing and pay no tax."
"Come off! You're guying me."
"Fact" And he gave Thurston Miss
Engleheart's letter to rend. The latter
scratched his head.
"Dick," he said presently, "there's
something wrong somewhere In this
"Why do you think so?"
"Well, your proposition Is so unheard
of that I can't conceive of any woman
taking It seriously."
"I'm afraid you're up a tree."
"What can I do?"
"I won't do that. Fact is I don't
want to do that. I'm in it, and I'm
going to stay In it"
"Well. It may come out all right.
There's one thing I can say to you to
encourage you. It has seemed to me
that any girl receiving such a propo
sition that is. your making any con
ditions whatever would send It back
with a stick of dynamite nttached.
But I've observed this about women:
They generally do Just the opposite
from what one expects them to do."
"This is encouraging. Isn't it?"
"It's all the comfort I can give you."
Ityerson stayed on it. as he said he
would, and after a brief engagement
he was married lie remained away
from his club during the honeymoon,
but as soon as it had passed ho made
his appearance there. Tho first man
he met was Thurston,
"Well, old chappie." said the latter,
"so you've beaten the government."
ftyerson's face fell. "Do you re
member what you said about there be
ing something wrong?"
"Yes. but I hope I was. wrong."
"And that you said a womau would
always do what you expected her not
"Why, yea: I remember that too. I
hope nothing has occurred to make
"Oil. no; nothing like that, but i
ilit'n't beat the government after all."
"You didn't beat the government aft
er all?" '
"No. the g tverument beat me."
"Why. the woman I married conceal
ed the fact that she Iwtl an Income of
$3,000 a yitar. Ann bachelor I would
have paid a tax on S1.000. and pow us
a marcled man I'll have to pay on

"You bet: you were right after all,
