The American and English Cap

f Tangier? Morocco, May 3L- The
United Stetes Cruiser Brooklyn, flying
.the flag of Bear Admiral Chadwick,
has arrive?! here. The cruiser Atlanta
arrived later and joined the Brooklyn.
Two other American warships are
expected, shortly. The authorities
here consider that the position of
Perdicaris and his stepson is now more
serious than before.
"Washington, May 30.-Mr. Gum
mere, the United States consul at
Tangier, in a cablegram received at
the state department tonight says that
threats against the lives of Raisull's
captives, Perdicaris and Varney, have
been made unless the bandits' de?
mands are granted. A dispatch from
Admiral Jewell commanding the" Eu?
ropean squadron, announce the depart
ure for Tangier of the cruisers Olym

Hot Education, Mere Stuffing.
Some day, perhaps, we will return to
sane methods in the teaching of child?
ren. Speed that day. At the present
time the little ones are the vi vet i irs
cf education gone mad. Their small
?cads are troubled with things beyond
tiheir understanding and they are made
-to say things like a parrott Fairey
a little grammar student Not l(f at?
tempting to diagram a sentence taken
from a history of mythology! And
laney a child of 9 struggling to read
ancient history, with all the latter's
unpronounceable names! It is ail-ali
?Tong. We are not teaching children
in these days. We are simply attack?
ing their nervous systems and racking
their undeveloped brain.-Indianapo?
The income tax was introduced into
England.by William Pitt-who other?
wise had his points-in 1799 under the
stress of the French war. It ceased
in 18X&V but was revived bv the das
: tardly Sir Robert Peel in 1842, and
extended by the iniquitous'Gl?dstone
in 1S53- From being a temporary
war tax it has now become a perma?
nent part of the British financial sys
tem, and is resorted to by every chan?
cellor who fmds,himself in difficulties.
It is not such an inquisitorial tax
as you would think, as over half-I
nave seen it stated two-thirds-cf the
amount collected is not assessed di?
rectly on tne^ultimate payers, but at
the source of origin. I own stock, let
ns say, in a railroad and industrial
company. The income tax is assess?
ed oil and collected from the railroad
company in one sum, and the burden
erf it distributed among the stockhold?
ers in proportion to their holdings.
35y dividends, that is, reach me "less
Income tax." Ia this way evasion is
made extremely difficult, the product?
ivity of the tax is largey increased,
and Its incidence is deprived of that
personal element and that direct con?
tract between'tbs individual and the
tax colecting agency which are nsually
reeponsible for the unpopularity of
imposts. On the whole, it is proba?
bly true to say that in no other way
can the srea?th derived from property
and investments be so adequately, so
regularly, and so equally laid under
contribution.-Sidney Brooks in Har?

Several Hundred Acres of Cotton

San Antonio, Tex., June 2.-Jose
Cassia.no, "former county collector,
who has several hundred acres of cot
ton in this county, is the bearer of
good tidings concerning the work of
red ants.' Mr. Cassiano's fields, less
than a month ago, were alive with
boll weevils. Today he said there is
not a live weevil in his fields. The
rows are strewn with dead weevils,
which the busy little red ants are car
rying away by thousands. Mr. Cassi
ano says a close inspection failed to
show a single live weevil on a cotton
plant anywhere an his fields. The
ants are on the plants-and the rows
between in. countless thousands.
They seem to have completed the
slaughter of the weevils and are now
engaged in carrying the corpses away,
probably, to be stored for feed.

" I am ia my 70th year, and in rugged health.
A number of years ago I had three severe
attacks of grip, the last one being followed by
pneumonia. I was left with a bad cough and
severe hemorrhages of the lungs. The doctoro
did not help me and I was in despair because
consumption was, upon me. I tried cough
medicines and so-called consumption cures
without benefit and was nearing my end. when
a good neighbor brought me a bottle of DufiVs
Pure Malt Whiskey. It helped me from tho
first and I began to mend. Eight bottles com?
pletely cured me.

house and when I feel the least badly I take
it according to direction. It keeps me weil and
