Will Make Cheaper Goods.
Cheaper ihoet, clothei, window
glatf, lumber and paper will be
among the public's profits when the
Payne tariff bill Is passed by con
gress. The ideas of the tariff fram
ers are being reconciled and the re
vision is to respond to the popular
demand for a reduction.
At this time the committee on
ways and meant is practically agreed
to a JO per cent reduction in steel
schedules except billits. The duties
on wooleni will be reduced. The
woolen mills are no longer depend
cnt on protection and the price of
cloth Is too high, the leaden think.
The plate and window glass prices
will be reduced and lumber will be
put on the free list.
Wood pulp and print paper will be
materailly reduced, and there it a
strong chance ot their being admitt
ed duty free. The house bill will
Include a provision for free hides
A reduction on shoes and leather
goods will also be reported in the
There it not much encouragement
for the coffee importers in the senti
ment for the coffee tax. Chairman
Payne Is still strongly in favor of the
tax at a revenue producer. He is
running counter to the opinions of a
majority of the house and the ma
jority of the committee.
Mr. Payne it now convinced that
the country wants the tariff reduced,
and he is working to secure the re
duction in the schedules. Dalzell
and Fordney of Michigan and Gaines
of West Virginia are still fighting the
reductions but with little effect.

The Louisville Times hands out
this wise and timely advice : "In

State Treasury, if he would stay at
home and try to earn his own salary,
and if Lieut. Cox was not compelled
to fill the Governor's office about
half the time and draw from the
State Treasury a salary nearly equal
to Wilson, there might not be so
much need of increasing our taxes
When the Lieutenant Governor tills
the chief executive'! place he draws
for the time the salary the Governor
ould draw. Still the Governor
draws for full time. Let Wilson

Why Editors Are Liars.
Did you evey read a wedding no
tice that departed much from the
following) Miss Est! Mable Good
and Mr Sterling Worth were mar
ried lsst evening at the home of the
bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Swell,
on Prosperity avenue, Rev. Mr. Dig
Fee officiating. Or did you ever
read of a school entertainment where
the exercises did not "reflect credit
on the teacher," or of a social
gathering that was not a "most-enjoyable-event,"
or of a rich red
headed girl whose ."auburn tresses"
were not much admired, or of a fun
eral where the deceased was not the
embodiment of all virtues and where
the bereaved relatives did not have
the sympathy of the entire communi
ty? asks the Lindborg Newt, No,
and you never will so long as you
will Insist on tearing the printer
man's eyes out or wreck his office
or stopping your paper every time
he tells the truth about you. You
don't want the truth, unless Jt Is
something bad about your neighbor
and then you are mightily pleased
and come around and tell the editor :
"That was a hot shot you gave old
Brown. Served him right, too,
But if you stop to notice you will re
member that you never told the
writer such a thing when anybody
else could hear you. Y-m were
afraid to, weren't you? And you
don't want the truth. It is an item
of news when your child fails to pass
an examination in school, just at
much so as when he succeeds in
passing. But, Lord; how mad you
get if the editor mentions it. Your
daughter's chasing after that be-olt-
ed haired dry goods machinist is
notorious town talk in fact, but
when the wedding notice appears
you don't want the paper man to
give a notice something like this :
"After several months of hard,
work, Miss App Arent Fraud has
succeeded in landing that young
rake, Mr. Oy Lee Tough, who is
rustling dry goods lor Jones, ine
Lord knows she has angled long
enough for a beau, and the whole
town rejoices that she has at last
succeeded in landing a sucker."
Now you don't wait that. If it is
so, even if you are a good christian,
yourself, you want the poor journa
list to risk his immortal soul and
lie about your daughter. You want
him to go to hell vicariously, don't
you? And when you get a job after
asking every man in town you want
us to say you "accepted a position."
And when you get brta you want us
to get upon our behind legs and say
that you have "resigned your res
ponsible place." No, the Lindborg
Mews Is exactly rignt ana me poor
editor cannot hope to have any great
reputation for truth and veracity so
long as you insist on his being a con
stant liar about your own petty, little
contemptible affairs. And when
that sot of a husband dies, all we
can possibly say is, "he had his
faults," when as a nutter ot tact
the morality of the town goes up 42
per cent, at his demise. And when
your poor, nara-woricing wne goes
sixteen miles out in the country for
the first time tn 18 years, you don't
want us to call attention to the fact
you have been a brute so long.
Oh no, you don't want the truth.

This prescription forces the clog-ged-up,
inactive kidneys to filter
and strain from the blood the poison
ous waste matter and uric acid,
which causes Rheumatism.
As Rheumatism is not only the
most painful and torturous disease
but dangerous to life, this simple
recipe will no doubt be greatly
valued by many sufferers here at

the mixture to get this relief.
It is said that a person who would
take this prescription regularly, a
dose or two daily, or even a few
times a week, would never have
serious Kidney or Urinary disorders
