The poor old Union baa been having a
bard time the past two days flopping be

have relieved its anxiety greatly.
As evidence of the complete harmony

The Union says that C. H. Deere. II.
A. Ainswortn, Judge Gould and Capt.
W. C. Bennett of Moline were all impor

It will have to be accepted.
Would not the Union's idea of bring

The Tax en tbe Consumer.
Some people paid a very large amount
of money to the government in 1891 in
tariff taxes. The money, says tbe New
Toik World, was paid here by the im
porters and was added to the price of tbe
A great many cotton goods were im
ported. Their value was $29,142,000.
The tax on them was $14,852,696. In
ther words, for a dollar's worth of cot
ton goods the importer paid about $1.50.
If be mt.de an average profit of 10 per
cent on his outlay tte joboer made 15
per cent the retailer paid about $1.90,
and if be. in his turn, marfe 20 per cent
the man or woman who bought the goods
for wearing apparel paid $2.28 for a dol
lar's worth of cotton goods.
Of woolen goods $43,000,000 worth
were imported, and on them the govern
ment collected a tax of $33,000,000 or
about 80 per cent. Therefore the im
porter paid $1.80 for every dollar's
worth of woolens, and if the various
dealers made tbe average profits assumed
above the consumer paid for his dollar's
worth of woolen $2.70.
Tariff taxes grow until the consumer
finally pays them. The consumer's tax
on cottons, in the case supposed, would
be 128 per cent. 78 more than the im
porter's; his tax on woolens would be
170 per ctnt, or 90 more than the im
porter's. This is what a tariff tax signifies to
the consumers of cotton and woolen
Ths lllanket Tax. I
St. Louis Republic.
From October 1. 1890. to June 30,1891,
32.017 pounds of blankets were imported
under the McKinley bill. Their original
cost was $23,439; their cost with the Mc
Kinley tax added was $43,301.
It will be seen that the tax was vir
tually prohibitory. McKinley now claims
that the "foreigner pays the tax." Here
is a case one of hundreds where the
tax is made so high that Americans are
not allowed to buy goods from foreigners
who "pay the tax." Only the best
grades of blankets could be imported
under the tax, for, as will be seen from
this official table, tbe lowest tax is im
posed on tbe finest grade, tbe higher
taxes on the coarser:
Va ued at not more than SO cents a pound fit. 92
Valued at more than 30 cents and under 40. .. 0.91
Valued at more than 40 and under 50 l.Ofi
Valued at 50 and over 0.S3
As a result of this arrangement over 90
per cent of the blankets imported were
of the very finest grade, costing 50 cents
a pound and over. Such blankets as are
used by people of ordinary incomes were
almost entirely excluded.
Tbe treasury figures show that of the
four grades of blankets listed above, tbe
first cost 23 cents a pound without the
tax. 51 cents a pound with the tax added;
tbe second 39 cents a pound without the
tax, 74 cents a pound ti-x added ; the third
46 cents a pound without the tax, 96
cents a pound tax added; the fourth 89
cents a pound without the tax, $1.63 tax
Under the McKinley bill a good ordi
nary blanket, worth between 40 and 50
cents a pound, is taxed $1.06 on every
dollar of its value. Tbe house passed a
bill reducing the blanket tax from this
outrageous rate to 25 per cent, but this
bill went with the rest to the pigeonholes
of the republican senate.
Twtnty Years Experience
C. D. Fredricks, the well known pho
tographer, 770 Broadway, New York,
"I have been using Allcock'a Porous
Plasters for 20 years, and found them
one of the best of family medicines.
Briefly summing up my experience, I say
that when placed on the small of the
back Allccck's Plasters fill the body with
nervous energy, and thus cure fatigue,
brain exhaustion, debility and kidney
difficulties. For women and children I
have found them invaluable. They
never irritate the skin or cause tbe
slightest pain, but cure sore throat,
coughs, colds, pains in side, back or
chest, indigestion and bowel corr plaints."
Keatt Hist Own Obituary.
Mr. Albert Owens is a prominent
young farmer near Winnebago City,
Minn. He spent hundreds of dollars in
endeavoring to recover from nervous
prostration, and a year ago was so low
that a report of bis death reached the
editor of the Winnebago Press News.
An obituary of Mr. Owens appeared in
that paper, and was read by him. While
in this condition he began taking Dr.
Miles' Restorative Remedies, and in a
short time was a well man. Says he
never felt better than now.
Catarrn Cant be Cored
with local applications, as they cannot
reach the seat of the disease. Catarrh is
a blood or constitutional disease, and in
order to cure it you haye to take internal
remedies. Hall's Catarrh cure is taken
internally, and acts directly on the blood
and mucous surfaces. Hall's Catarrh
Cure is no quack medicine. It was pre
scribed by one of tbe best physicians in
this country for years; and is a regular
prescription. It is composed of the best
tonics known, combined with tbe beat
blood purifiers, acting directly on the
mucous surfaces. The perfect combina
tion of tbe two ingredients ia what pro
duces such wonderful results in curing
catarrh. Send for testimonials free.
