these facts it would seem best to leavo
the mail service alone, especially the

larger dividendls, or less? If the latter,
the contract system is the way to do it
but if he wants the department to be al

The reyision of the tariff
td downward was the prime obli
gation to which the retiring law
makers were committed when
s they weiitinto office. Thit had
been the big issue of the cam
paign in which' VVoodrow Wil
e son was elected. The, enemies
i1 of tariff reform were prepared to
1 acquiesce with what grace they
could muster il the changes
proposed. It was a hard job
which the Democrats had but it
was accomplished without a
hitch. Nobod y knew, however,
what would be the result when
congress tackled its next big
job. that of providing the coun
try with a new and workable
currency law to take the place
of the broken-down and danger
ous system with which we v'ere
encumfibered. What was hc
complished in this matter has
excited the admiration of the
nation. It is accepted by finan
ciers of all parties as the very
best law which could have been
secured. But these t w o big
pieces of legislation were only a
beginning. An income tax law
was written upon the statute
books. A- federal trade commis
sion has been created, from
whose activities great things are
hoped.' The anti-trust I a w s
have been reyised. Arrange
ments were made for the open

canal act was repealed. A law
regulating c o t to n exchanges
was passed and has just gone
into effect. A drastic measure

all habit-forming dr6gs went

Half Your Living
Without Money Cost
A right or wrong start In 1915 will
anlte or - break most farmers in the
Cotton States. We are all facing a
crisis on cotton. Cotton credit is up
set. The supply merchant cannot aa
vance supplies on 1915 cotton. You
must do your best to produce on your
own acres the food and grain supplies
that have made up most of your store
debt in the past.
A good -piece of garden ground,
rightly planted, rightly tended 'and
kept planted the year round, can be
made to pay bait your living. It will
save you more money than you made
on the best five acres of cotton you
ever grew! But it must be a real
garden, and not the mere one-plant
