A National Budget.
'Few successful business men and
fewer national governments try to
operate without having a definite re
lation between income and expendi
tures. The budget system is used
by all large business concerns and
many small ones it is used by the
majority of foreign governments in
fact President Taft is authority for
the statement that the United States
is the only nation which does not
have a budget.
There is hardly a business man in
the country who will question the ad
visability of placing the government
on a business basis by the use of the
budget system as proposed by the
president an dsubmitted to congress,
by him in his June message. At the
present time certain estimates are
required by law but these are un
systematic, lacking in uniformity,
and are incapable of being summar
1 ized in such a manner as to give
anyone an adequate idea of what is
to be done during the coming fiscal
President Taft says, "Each year
congress has been making increas
ingly large appropriations, based on
estimates which are submitted by
officers acting in the capacity of min
istrial agents to congress, under a
law which makes no provisions what
ever for executive review and revi
sion. This I have sought in a meas
ure to correct by asking the heads
of departments to send estimates to
mo before they_were printed, nut the
conditions attached by congress have
been such as to make effective re
"The present legal directions as to
estimates are based on the theory
that there is no need to take stock
before pasing on appropriations
that it is not necessary to consider
revenues or treasury resources. Con
gress has directed each executive
officer to submit an estimate through
the secretary of the treasury, who is
made to serve in the capacity of an
official messenger without any di
scretion whatever unless a depart
ment head may fail to prepare a re
quest for appropriations in the form
prescribed by congress, in which
event the secretary of the treasury
has imposed upon him the duty 00
submit an estimate for him.
"Congress has created certain com
mittees on appropriations, who alone
have power to review and revise re
quests of department heads. Even
in its own organization, however,
congreut has failed to make provision
for oorsidering expenditures and es
timate for appropriations in relation

^thodist Church In Line.
'Rock River conference of the
list church in conference at
-on, II* has adopted a set of
resolutions on marriage and divorce
that are in line with the most ad
vanced ideas of eugenists and others
interested in seeing the human race
improve physically. Each year finds
more people believing that a physical
examination should be necesasry be
fore marriages and more are agreeing
that marriage and divorce laws
should be made by the national gov
ernment and so be uniform all over
Following are the resolutions
adopted by the church:
"Marriage and divorce should be
regulated by the state in a most care-
ful manner. The safe-guarding of
the home is the state's chief business.
The interest of the state in the family
is paramount to the interest of the
individual member of the family,
because the citizens of the state come
from the home, and are trained for
citizenship, in large part, in the
"We hold that it is the bounden
duty of both the state and church to
throw about he home every safe-
guard, not only for the physical well-
being of the nation, but for the
spiritual welfare of generations yet
unborn. To this end we believe
there should be:
1. Federal control of the entire
subject of marriage and divorce, in-
suring uniformity of laws.
2. Physical examination of the
contracting parties to a marriage.
3. Wide publicity of the intention
of the parties to enter the marriage
4. A law compelling the filing of a
certificate by each party setting
forth all places of previous residence.
5. A statute providing that no di-
vorce may be granted except on
scriptural grounds. It should be
provided, however, that there may
be granted, in certain cases, the
right of separate maintenance.
6. A statute making abandon-
ment of a wife by a husband a
7. Rigid laws prohibiting the
manufacture and sale of intoxicat-
ing beverages, believing, as we do
from a close study of statistics, that
the use of liquor, directly and in-
directly, is one of the greatest causes

"Pull out one gray hair and a doz
en will take its place," is an-old say
ing, which is, to a great extent, true,
if uo steps are taken to stop the
cause. When gray hairs appear it is
a sign that Nature needs assistance.
It is Nature's call for help. Gray
taif, dull, lifeless hair, or hair that
is faljing out, is not necessarily a
sign of advancing age, for there are
thousands of elderly people with per
fect heads| of hair without a single
streak of gray.
When gray hairs come, or when
the hair seems to be lifeless or dead,
some good, reliable hair restoring
treatment should be resorted to at
once. Specialists say that one of the
best preparations to use is the old
fashioned "sage tea" which our grand
parents used. The best preparation
of this kind is Wyeth's Sage and Sul
phur Hair Remedy, a preparation of
domestic sage and sulphur, scientifi
cally compounded with later discov
ered hair tonics and stimulants, the
whole mixture being carefully bal
anced and tested by experts.
