UIiih tax has to be paid by tho

tea, coffee, sugar, molasaos, salt,
clieceo, calico, boots, shoes, hats,
cups, glovos, medicines, and even In
everything else that we oat, drink,
or wear. We' are even taxed on tho
coup used hi washing our Lauds.
The tax is paid in by every man,
woman, and child cvory day. und
' in every hour of our lives. We
scarcely breathe without paying a
tax upon it. From night clothes to
the shroud nil are taxed. A groat

of tho laborer all of whom receive
from four to ten dollars per day
