"Single Tax," What it Means.
"Just what is Single Tax" is a
question heard most frequently,
since Missouri is to vote on the
question November 5. Here's ex
actly what Single Tax means and
what will happen if Missouri fails
to vote XO on the constitutional
No tax on bonds, notes, mort
gages, automobiles stock, carriages,
merchandise or any other form of
No tax on any building whatso
ever. All taxes on the value of land,
exclusive of improvements: and
upon corporate franchises.
The result of Single Tax will be-
A shifting of the burden of state
and county tax FROM THE
CITIES TO THE COUNTRY.
The improvements and personal
property in the cities arc at least
two or three times the value of
the bare lots even with the
present lax enforcement of the
personal property law. The same
total annual revenue must be
raised under the proposed law as
now. The result can only be to
make the country pay more taxes
and the cities less. Any school
boy can figure that out.
In towns there will be a similar
shifting from improved lots to un
A skyscraper will pay no tax;
and lots under it will pay only as
much as the unimpruved land in
the immediate vicinity. The
owner of a lot with a 830,000 man
sion on it will pay no more tax
than the owner of an adjoining
lot with a $2,000 dwelling.
Kansas City Live Stock Market.
Kansas City Stock Yards. Sep
tember 30, igis Medium class
steers slumped off 25 to 40 cents
more last week, as all the markets
were favored with a considerable
influx of that kind of cattle from
pastures in Kansas and Nebraska
particularly, and from other sec
tions. Cows and heifers were
scarce, and sold firm, and quaran
tine steers, though lacking quality,
held up steady, in line with butch
er cattle generally. Stock steers
eased of! 35 cents, and feeders
dropped down half a dollar, be
cause of the liberal supply coming
off the grass now. The decline in
country classes was solely because
of the large supply, as the demand
for them wns greatest of the sea
son, and country buying the heavi
est. More than 32,000 cattle went
out to the country points, about
45 per cent of the total supply for
the week. Receipts today are
heavy, 2g,ooo head, including 2500
calves. The. market is following
the same lines as last week, me
dium steers a shade lower, cows
steady, stockers and feeders steady
to weak. Prime cattle are firm
all the time, and look safe some
time ahead, best here last week
S10.90. A feature sale today is
some 1 1 50, 'pound Colorado grass
steers, from Gunnison, at S8.50
others at $7.35, these were choice,
and were as high as any time this
season. Kansas pasture steers
range from S6.00 to $8.30. and
stockers and feeders range from
S4.50 to S7.40. Cold weather and
frost in last few days will hurry
shipments from blue-stem territory,
and prospective purchasers of stock
rattle or fcedsrs will find the next
week or two the best time to buy
this fall. Hog prices are firm, but
the market is at a point beyond
which it is hard to pass. Run to
day 3000, prices 5 to 10 higher,
top S8 724 bulk S8 45 S8.70.
Heavy hogs brought $8.70 today,
and that kind will soon lead the
others Sheep and lambs are
weak to 15 lower today, run 25.
000 head. Prices are going down
steadily, in the face of bull pre-dn-tions
from nearly every trader.
Feeding stock is coming freely,
add should be plentiful some weekJ
uhead, Iambs for the country now
selling around $6.15, fat lambs to
day $6 90.

Source of Typhoid Fever.
The source of typhoid fever is
the typhoid patient. The bac
teria leave the patient in the ex
creta. From the excreta the bac
teria are carried tc water by sur
face drainage; to the dairy, through
infected water, Hies, and other in
sects. Springs, surface wells, leaky cis
terns, creeks, and rivers are sup
plied by surface water. Surface
water is the water in the upper
surface of the soil and is derived
from rain, snow, and sleet. The
character of this water is deter
mined by the character of the sur
face drained. If the water shed is
infected, by having the excreta
from a typhoid fever patient
thrown on it for instance, the
bacteria may be carried to the
springs, wells, leaky cisterns, and
surface streams. This infected
water may serve directly to infect
the person drinking the water, or
may infect vegetables, milk cans,
dishes, and other utensils used in
the preservation and preparation
of food. In this way it infects the
food supply which in turn infects
