CONGRESS DECREES DOLLARS IN
DULGING IN LUXURIES MUST
FIRST SALUTE THE FLAG.
War Revenue. Tax of $105,000,000
Levied-Beer Bears Brunt of
Congress has levied a war tax of
$105,0020;00 to offset a similar amount
of loss on--Import revenue due to the
European disturbances and of this
amount beer is the heaviest
contributor, having been assessed ap
proximatel $56,000,000; a stamp tax on
negotiable Instruments, It is estimated,
will yield $31,000,000; a tax -on the
capital stock of banks of $4,300,000
and a tax on tobacco, peifumes, tiea
ter tickets, etc., makes the remainder.
Congress has deceed . that the
brewer, the banker and the investor
must shoulder the musket and march
to *the front; that miladywho would
add to her'beauty must first tip Uncle
Sam, and a dollar that seeks pleasure
must first salute the flag; that Pleas
ure. and Proft-the twin heroes, of
many wars-ishafl efght the nition's
battles and by an ingeniously ar.
ranged schedule of taxation congress
hasshifted the war budget from the
shoulderr of-Necessity to those of
Choice and Gain, touching in Its
various ramifications almost every line
All hail the dollar that bleeds. for
Its country; that bares Its breast to
the fortunes of war and risks its life
to preserve the stability and integrity
of the nation's credit. -
The market place has always'been
a favorite -stand for war revenue col
lectors. The trader is a- great finan
cial patriot. His dollar Is the first to
rally around the star-spangled banner
and the last to'hear the coo ,.3 the
dove of peace. He is caled upon to
buy cannon; to feed and clothe the
boys in blue and each month cheer
their hearts with the coin of the
realm. Men- can. neither be free nor
brave without food and ammunition,
and money is as'Important a factor
in war as blood. Many monuments
have been erected in honor of heroes
slain In battles, poems have been writ
ten - 6ul6igzlig their '.noble deeds and
the nation honors its -soldiers while
they lve and places a monument upon
tlelt gaves when they die, but very
little has been said of the dollar that
bears the burdens of war. .
Honor to the Dollar that Bears the
Ourdens of War. -
All honor to the dollar that an
swers the call to arms and, when
the battle Is over, bandages the
wounds of stricken soldiers, lays a.
wreath upon the graves of fallen
heroes and cares for the widows and
All honor to the industries that
bend their backs under the burdens
of war; lift thie weIght from the shoul
ders of the poor and build a bulwark
around the nation's credit.
All honor to those who contribute
to the necessities and aminister to'
the comforts of the boys who are'
marching; cool the fever of afflicted.
soldiers and kneel with the cross be-'
side dying heroes.
'A dollar inay fight its competitor in
business, industries may struggle 'for
supremacy in trade and occupations
may .view each other with envy or
suspicion, but when the bugle calls
they bury strife and rally around the
flag, companions and frIends, mess
mates and chums, all fighting for one,
flag, .one cause and one country.
The luxuries in life have always
been the great burden-bearers in gov
ernent. We will mention 'a few of
them giving the annual contributions
to the nation's treasury:. Liquor, $250,.
000,000; tobacco, $103,000,000; . sugar,
$54,000,000; silks, $15,500,000; dia
monds, $3,837,000; miinry, $2,479,
000; furs, $2,024,000 and automobiles,
$870,000, We collect $665,000,000 of
internal and custom revenue annually
and $450,000,000 of this amount classi
fies as luxuries, and to this amount
we should add the $100,000,000 war tax
The war tax is immediately effec
tive. Tramp! Tramp! Tramp! the
industries are marching $100,000,000
strong and beneath the starry flag
they, will fll the treasury again while
they shout, "Hurrah for Uncle Sam!"
In every field of human activity the
demand for more competent men and
women is growing every day. Espe
dily so in agriculture.
Home pride is a mighty valuable as
set, and the farmer who has none Is
carrying a heavy na~ndicap on the
road to success.
