()l'K INCR'EASED IREVENt'E n
it ts given out that the receipts front internal revenue for the fiscal p
year of 1919 were more than $1.30,iit.o . .00i more than expected or than ii
estimated by the revenue department. This is welcome news. for we are d
so accustomed to hearing that receipts do not equal expectations and that d
other sources of taxation must be found, that it is refreshing to learn that
one department is producing all that was expected.
There is another side. however. Much of this increase is from receipts
that should have come in before--from increases in the income tax returns
previously filed and which were too small when investigated. Also, much e
is due to the activity of the revenue men in forcing a proper return of a
excess profit taxes and other revenues due the government. C
There is a strong demand for the repeal of the excess profits tax and a
some action will doubtless be taken this winter by Congress. but the fact
that a tax is unpopular is no excuse for evasion or failure to pay what is t
justly due. No tax is popular--and no economist has ever been able to
sugar coat the pill so that the patient will admit enjoying the dose.
RSINESI. Y 'ONDITI()NS
Presidential year is proverbially a bad business year. but we do not t
believe that business conditions this year are in any way related to the
election just passed. We believe that the causes for such business de- I
pression as exists can be found elsewhere.
There has been a general slacking off in buying, due to the belie" that
prices must come down. That slacking off has been a prime factor in the ;
price reductions. But conditions now are rapidly coming round to normal.
There is no unhealthy condition, merely letting some of the air out of the
inflation that has been going on for the past few years.
It is gratifying to know that even in the face of falling prices, the!
volume of general business continue good. The bank clearings do not
show any falling off. In some lines there is slackness and there may be
some unemployment during the winter, but the adjustment to peace condi
tions i" going on so quietly and with such apparent ease that it is probable
nothing more than a flurry will result.
The feeling and talk of optimism is one of the most encouraging signs.
Panics are often phsycological.
Impulse is one of the most valuable of all human characteristics, yet
there are times when it is one of the most dangerous. We often hear the
admonition, "Obey that impulse," but as a rule it is better not to obey an
impulse too quickly. If there is a doubt in the mind, it is better to give
the matter some thought.
Por instance, someone may say or do something that will make us so
angry we are impelled to reply in kind, either with hot words or an unkind
act. In such a case it is better to delay until tomorrow with the assurance
that a night's sleep will restore our equanamity and put us in better touch
with things, so that we can make a safer decision.
Whenever the impulse comes to do an unworthy act, it we will put off
our decision until the next day, the chances are that we will escape many
mlsteps. Follow your impulse--it it leads to good, but always remember
that a bad impulse can wait until tomorrow.
HONESTLY, now, it you didn't bet any money on the election, were
you very mach laeoted by the result?
HOW lucky that the president does not issue his Thanksgiving procla
matioa until after the election. Tlhen we all know what we are to be
thanful for--and some on the losing side wonder why he issues a proclama
WHAT'8 the use of getting into war? Can't we kill of enough with
our autos ad our football games.
EVERY little while some fellow comes forward with another substi
tute for gasoline-but the 8tandtard goes right along paying dividends.
MAYBE that Ohio professor who prepared the fake Harding geneology
is the same fellow who can show that you have a fortune in Europe. Charts

ONE writer says the trouble with the country is that we are becoming
gamblers and wasters. That word "becoming." in this connection is
goed, very good.
OGLORIOUS. One manufacturer has prepared a tax scheme for the
country that will provide revenue, pay the national debt and NOT BE A
BURDEN ON ANYONE. We are holding our breath in anticipation of that
wonderful tax law.
