IN U. S. IMPORTS
Eleven Months of New Tariff Law
Shows $14,000,000 Addi
tion to Goods Brought In
AD VALOREM RATE IS LESS
Customs Receipts Under Payne
Law Only Exceeded in
One Previous Year
WASHINGTON, July 13.—Imports
exceeding- by over $114,000,000 those j
of any previous similar period came
into the United States during the first
eleven months of the operation of the
Payne-Aldrlch tariff law, ending Juno
More than -in per cent of these im
ports outer".l free of duty, being a
larper percentage than in the corres
ponding period of any previous year
except iv". tlip dosing year of the Wil
son tariff law and 1892, 1893 and 18M,
when sugar was admitted free under
tho McKlnley law.
Customs receipts during the eleven
months of the Payne tariff law were
1302,822,161. exceeded only In 1907, when
the first eleven months brought in $307,
--068,381. Those figures were made pub
lic today by the bureau of statistics of
the department of commerce and labor.
Under the Payne law the average ad
valorem rate of duty on all imports lias
been 20.96 per cent, which is less than
in any previous similar period since ,
1890, except in 1896, when it was 20.68
per cent, and In 1894, the closing year
of the McKlnley law, when it was 19.
AD VALOREM RATE LESS
On the dutiable imports, the average
ad valorem rate under the present
law had been 41.19 per cent, or less
than in any previous year since 1890,
except In 1896, when i. was 39.33 per
Comparing the entire period of the
operation of the present law with the
entire period of the operation of the
Dingloy, Wilson and McKlnley laws,
respectively, the average ad valorem
rate under the Payne law is shown to j
be less than any of the others.
Under the Payne law it has been 20.95
Under the Dingley law It was 25.
per cent; under the Wilson taw, 21.92
per cent and under the McKinley law
22.12 per cent.
In regard to the average ad valorem
rate on dutiable merchandise only, the
same is true. Under the Dlngley. law
it was 45.76 per cent; under the Wilson
law, 42.m' per cent, and under the Mc-
Klnley law, 47.10 per cent.
The percentage of merchandise enter
ing free of duty under the Payne law
was 49.14 per cent. Under the McKin
lay law, which admitted sugar free, it
was 35.04 per cent, while under the
Wilson law it was 45.82 per cent.
The figures of the Payne law include
the five days of August, although the
law did not become operative until
August 6. The returns to the bureau
of statistics did not enable it to. sepa
rate the business of those five days
from that of the rest of the month.

A TALK WITH LIQUOR
DRINK AND BUSINESS
By A. G. E. MORGAN
>T~^HIS TALK isn't going to do you any good; but it
I may induce your relatives or friends to act. Ido
1 not believe that one liquor drinker in a hundred is
mentally capable of appreciating the danger that
lies in strong drink— to him; he knows that his brother
in drink is going to the dogs.
Any sober man knows what, soon or late, becomes of
the drinker; every drinker knows what liquor has done
for others, but profits not by that knowledge. Sure it is,
then, that the brain of the sober man and the brain of
the drinking man are different. The drinker's brain has
lost something—or a part of it doesn't work.
I drank much whisky once—that was before my rel
atives took me in hand and sent me to the Gatlin Insti
tute, where I was cured of my appetite for liquor in three
(j a y S —ten years ago, and I have remained cured. I can
look back on my drinking days—the days when a rank
poison was deluding me into the belief that 1 was having
a good time— and know I was nothing less than crazy.
1 thought alcohol a stimulant; I know now that it is a
sedative —a paralyzing agent—for all the finer parts of
my brain were out of commission—the parts that take
care of health and business were asleep.
I recommend the Gatlin treatment to the friends and relatives of every
drinking man as his only salvation. In three days it will make a man of him
—restore his nervous system, clear up his brain, drive the poison accumulated
in years of drinking from his system and give him an absolute disgust for
liquor and for liquor drinkers. The Gatlin Institute contracts that this shall
be the result of its treatment; if not, treatment costs nothing. No disagree
able hypodermic injections—no poisonous drugs—no substitutive stimulants.
My statements as to the drinking man and his brain are borne out by the
statements of the greatest of all alienists, Dr. Forel of Zurich University. He
"Even the moderate quantity of alcohol contained in a glass of
wine or a pint of beer is sufficient to paralyze, retard and disturb the
brain functions—it destroys and degenerates and is by far the worst
enemy of the human race."
That statement, coming from a man who devotes his whole life to
determining what man is insane and what man is not insane, seems to me/
as one that should make a liquor drinker stop and think before saying "Let's
have another 1" It should make him think Gatlin Institute
Every line of business today slams its doors in the race of the man who
drinks. The movement to stop drink is world-wide. Even the saloon
keeper has too much sense to employ a liquor drinker. Come to the Gatlin
Institute, investigate the treatment, talk to men who have taken it and size
them up and see how they 100k —then, if you think well of it, take the Gatlin
treatment, or have your friend take it and STOP DRINK in three days.

Drink Cost This Man a Business Paying $15,000 a Year
The following was written by a man whose business was ruined by drink. At one time
his profits were $15,000 a year. He is now manager of a concern on fairly large salary,
but, with a clear brain and no desire for liquor, he hopes to regain what he lost:
'"I am now 39 years of age. For more than two years and a half I have been a new
man. I do not have to fight the appetite for liquor, because the appetite is gone. Ido
not keep away from it as one does something he is afraid of, because the danger has been
removed. lam on the sober list now, and will stay there the rest of my life. I have had
my lesson, and it cost dear. I am done with the stuff forever, and this change was
made by the Gatlin treatment in three days. I have been instrumental in sending two
others through the Gatlin Institute. Both of them were cured and not a shadow <$i the
old appetite remains." (Original of this letter on file in office of the Gatlin Institute.)
