I the fui:ti"-y to th furin. W would,
tor exnmplo. prefer that tho rnto on

any farmer can then nvold tho burdon
by raising his own moat, and n farm
er who will not try to ralso his own

think the rnto on conl and brick can
much better bear nil Increase than
the rnto on cotton and Hour. We
would prefer that tho rato on plows

pianos and such nrtlulus as tho poor
