Billion Dollars Can be Cut Off. Burden
Washington, March 4.-An immedi
ate bililon dollars reduction in fed
eral taxes was suggested in a state
ment issued he'e today by William G.
McAdoo, former secretary of the treas
ury. - The present tax burden is too
great, lie said, and is "having an in
jurious effect on business."
Mr. McAdoo proposed that collec
tion of a tax to establish a sinking
fund for retirement of the war debt,
which was recommended by Former
Secretary Glass, to begin with the
fiscal year 1920, be postponed for two
years, and that the deferred payments
of European interest be funded un

"By discontinuing purchases of
Liberty bonds for retirement under
provisions of existing law, the treas
ury would be relieved of a large bur
den now reflected in the floating debt
and :which otherwise will have to be
made up by taxation," said Mr. Mc
"it would seem that reduction of
our tax bill for the next two years
in this manner could be accomplished
and that it would involve the issuance
of additional bondqs to the .xtent of

I find myself, at seventy-ono, frequently

I see myself in the little drug storo I owned
at Bolivar, Mo., making and telling a
vegetable compound to my friends and
customers-what was then known only as
Dr. Lewis' Medicine for Stomach, Liver
and Dowel Complaints.
For many years while I was perfecting my
formula I studied and Investigatod the
laxatives and cathartics -n the market and
became convinced that their main fault
was not that they (lid nct act on tho bowels
but that their action was too violeut ar.d
drastic, and apeet the system of the user;
which was due to the fact that they were
not thorough enough in their action, come
simply acting on the upper or a- I intes
tines, while others would act ont/ on tho
lower or large intestines, and that they
almost invariably produced a habit re
quiring augmented doaces,
I believed that a preparation to produce
the best effect mus-t first tono tio liver,
then set on the stomach and entire alimen
tary system. If this was accomplished, the
medicino would produce a mild, but
thorough elimination of thewastewithout
the usual sickening sensations, and make
the user feel better at once.
After experimenting with hundreds of
different compounds, I at last perfected the
ormula that is now known as Nature's
Hemedy, which I truly bclievo Coes further
