P It has been our experience in buying our goods, gj
, j that we are compelled to go to different firms and dif- jffi
1 in ferent markets and purchase where we get the best j
raj possible value. g
H A wide-awake business concern is not usually
H misled by having various leaders or baits offered flfl
1 I them, but examine and size up, from all angles, each H
I individual purchase. On the other hand, if a general j
I orer were given off -handed merely because a certain H
H firm had a very low price on beans or soap, then, more H
IBj wide-awake competitors, who were shrewd enough H
Wi to investigate each and every item purchased, would Rji
H get the business because they watch other things be- g 1
Hr H sides beans or soap. ll
I ; I I You will be well paid I
I I for the time spent in I
I 1 applying this method
H, I to your own buying 1
H I in your home.
II I A SUGGESTION J
Q Make up a list of a thirty or sixty day supply of
Hi Bj goods and call up or see us and compare prevailing 1
B 1 i prices with ours on each and every item, included in S
H your list. Get both a delivered or non-delivered price.
H Under this plan we usually get the business, and we 1
H always take care of orders as they should be taken kJ
!J care of. An absolute guarantee to please with each S
Hj H order. mg

EXCESS PROFIT TAX
WASHINGTON, D. C, Jan. 2.
Through the faiiuro of congress to
recognize the depleting character of
mining, oil and gas properties in the
excess profits tax act, the mining and
oil men of tho United States aro urg
ing a brief amendment to section 207
of the act to remedy what they con
sider a very serious mistake. Mining
and oil men from east and west havo
been in Washington sinco congress as
sembled and they have succeeded in
convincing members of the Advisory
board of the Revenue commissioner
that an oversight occurred in the fram
ing of the law.
One of tho serious blunders of tho
revenue tax act, according to tho mine
operators, is that the deductions which
corporations are permitted to make are
based upon capital stock instead of
Invested capital. This provision of the
law creates very serious inequalities
of taxation between mine and oil wells
which possess practically tho same
status of production.
For example, two neighboring min
ing companies in a western state earn
ing about $1,500,000 each. Ono of these
possesses a capital stock of $18,000,000
and the other $250,000. The deduction
of 9 per cent extinguishes the taxable
Income of the $1S,000,000 company and
leaves it tax-free under tho law, while
the other company is entitled to a de
duction of only $22,500 from its earn
ings of $1,500,000. Tho company pos
sessing tho largo capital is entirely
willing to submit to a tax burden equal
to that of its neighbor, and is assisting
in tho work of changing the law.
In the case of two contiguous oil
companies in Oklahoma, each possess
ing 160 acres and producing about
equal amounts of oil, one is capitalized
at $20,000 and tho other at $50,000,000.
The company of small capitalization
must pay a burdensome tax, while the
other is exempt.
Numerous instances of such inequal
ities have been brought to public at
tention. Tho law provides for the deduction
of not less than 7 per cent nor more
than 9 per cent of tho invested capital
as a basis upon which tho progressive
assessment of excess profits is deter
mined. The higher tho capitalization,
the greater tho deduction, so that the
more conservative mining company
with its low capitalization is required
to pay a much higher tax upon its
The common Interest In the problem
mentioned has already welded togeth
er a great number of mining men into
an effective organization which is co
operating with the American Mining
congress to secure the attention of tho
treasury department and tho national
law-makers. Repeated conferences
havo been held and the appointment
of a committee of sixteen to advise
with the commissioner of revenue has
taken place. This committee was
created in response to a resolution
asking each of the various branches of
tho "oxhaustlng" industries to appoint
The objections raised by the mining
and oil men do not indicate any desire
to evade taxation, but rather a wish
to equalize tho burden among mlneral(
producers possessing a similar status.

PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 1. Mrs.
Josephus Daniels, wife of the secre-lsE
tary of the navy, today disclosed why;
the secretary's order before the warI!
eliminating intoxicating liquors fromjpf
officers' mess in the navy was issued.W
The order, she said, was broughtW
about by the case of a young officerw
whose court martial for being intoxl-i
cated" Mr. Daniels had approved. M
"A young officer had been court-M-martialed
by tho proper authorities!?!
for being intoxicated,"' said Jlrs.W
Daniels, "and Mr. Daniels had ap-H
proved of the court martial sentence
when an uncle of the boy, a memborW
of the Society of Friends, came intoj
my husband's office and upbraided!!
him for' having approved the sen- .1
tence. He said that the boy did not m
know what the taste of liquor was'
until he went Into tho navy. My bus-; m
1 band then issued his order, feeling M
that it was right for him to do so even V
if it only meant tho welfare of one! !
young officer." .!
