Wrong Belief Concerning Hebrew.
Less than two centuries ago even
men of learning believed that Hebrew
was the original language, and that
all other languages were offshoots
from it It has since been discovered
that Hebrew was a dead language In
the time of Jesus, and that no modern
language has been derived from It,
not even Yiddish.
TO MUQUtS OF $HI S1WUTG
Do you wear corsets? If so, you
are one of the women that the Ford-ney-McCumber
bill will compel to pay $58,000,000
in taxes a year. The proposed duty
under the Fordney-McCumber bill is
64 per cent, or 3.7 times the wage
cost. The present duty is 30 per
cent on plain cotton corsets or near
ly twice the present wage cost of
17.3 per cent. The Fair Tariff
League to whom you are indebted
for the statistics herein es
timates that the proposed duty would
be a possible tax of $29,000,000 for
the manufacturers, and cost women
at retail price twice this, or $58,
000,000. This tax is for manufact
urers not for revenue. In 1919 the
government collected only $10,000 on
corsets; only $4,000 in 1920 and in
1921 only $10,000.
The Fair Tariff League, which has
made a special study of this bill,
says that the' proposed duty .will
shut out imports and compel women
to buy from domestic manufactur
ers at any prices they dare charge.
A domestic manufacturer who is
prosperous says, "It's an outrage."
However, some corset factories are
hard up, but so are some women.
We make corsets cheaper and bet
ter than anywhere else in the
world. In 1920 the exports on cor
sets were 380 times the imports.
The 64 per cent tax these corsets
is shown to be wholly unjust' by the
fact that wages in the corset indus
try are only 17.3 per cent.
The Fair Tariff League says that
this corset tax is because women
have not known and have not
