What is the matter with the American people’s in dustry and business? What is the mat \fr .,with .the American people’s jobs? Well, for instance: The tax which the American people are paying into the United States Treas ury to conduct the United States Gov ernment, which is still on a war inflation basis, is, in round numbers, five billions of dollars a year. 1 he tax which the American people are paying to the railroads, which are still on a war inflation basis, to trans port the articles they use and the com modities they consume is, in round num bers, six billions of dollars a year. On just those two items alone, there fore, each of them hitting the public’s pocket squarely and unescapaoly, there is a tax of eleven billions of dollars fia year. Eleven billions of dollars a year is an ■ /erage charge of about $110 a year against every man, woman and child m the United States. By the f ederal cen sus estimate of an average of five persons to a family, eleven billions of dollars a year is an average charge of $550 against every family in the United States. Just think of it! An average family charge of $550 a year for only national Govern ment and railroad charges. The American people who foot all the bills for everything cannot stand a load of $55J a year to the family from Gov ernment and railroad charges alone oil top of all the other charges they have to carry. American industry cannot be come active and buoyant again when the American public, which must support American industry, is so overloaded with Government and railroad taxes. These war inflation charges against the public are largely due, both with the Government and with the railroads, to war inflation labor costs. The national Government costs of doing business must be cut to the bone so that the tax bur dens it piles upon the* public may be lightened. The railroads’ cost of doing business must be cut to the bone so that the tax burdens they pile upon the public may be lightened. But the task of cutting operating costs must begin with cutting war inflation labor costs. Then normal industry anf business will get a chance. —N. Y. Her ald. HERE IS A BARGAIN Owing to my ill health, I will sell at my residence in Perry, Maine, according to the government’s survey, one plush raspberry cow, age sixteen years. She is of undoubted courage and gives milk frequently. She will not kick, except when being milked. To the man who does not fear death in any form, she would be a great boon. She is very much attached to her present home with a stay chain, but she[will be sold to any one who will agree to treat her right. She is one-fourth Shorthorn and three quarters hyena. I will also throw in a double barrel shot gun which goes with her. In May she usually goes away for a week or two and returns with a tall, red calf with wobbly legs. Her name is Rose. I would rather sell her to a a non resident, the farther away the better. The price is right. If you aie interested in the cow, or if you want better milk and better service telephone Harry G.

Freight rates are now so high that Maine has not been able to compete for potato seed business in Texas and other parts of the South. Texas farmers paid a good price for their seed this year, about $5 per sack, but the freight from Aroostook to Texas is now $3.39 a barrel. This leaves the grower $1.61. sacked and loaded, for 165-pound sack. I feel that the railroads are find ing that id raising their rates so high, they have “killed the goose that laid the golden egg,” for what is true of potatoes is equally true of other farm products, aud the railroad tonnage is falling off very fast.

MAKES A PLEASING PICTURE Home Like This Would End the Wor. ries Over Landlords, Rents and Leases—Plenty of Light and Ventilation. By WILLIAM A. RADFORD. Mr. William A. Radford will answer questions and give advice FREE OF COST on all subjects pertaining to the subject of building, for the readers of this paper. On account of his wide experience as Editor, Author and Manufacturer, he is, without doubt, the highest authority on all these subjects. Address all inquiries to William A - Radford, No. 1827 Prairie avenue, Chicago, 111., and only inclose two-cent stamp for reply. Uppermost in the thoughts of most families today is the question of home —where they are going to live—how much it will cost—and will they be able to pay. Thousands are practically fac ing eviction upon the expiration of their present leases in May. Their rents have been raised to a point where they can no longer pay and live, so they must move. Consequent ly they are in a nerve-racking dilem ma. The possibility of their getting a new flat at a reasonable rate is very slim and they are confronted with a situation that demands considerable thought and worry. Many of them are turning to a sure source of relief, buying a home. In n home of their own their worries over rents, land lords, leases, etc., cease. They become independent citizens of a community; not wandering nomads nnd teat dwel lers. And this can be done at less monthly outlay than if they attempted to rent an apartment. Never was there a time when homes were needed as badly ns they are at sleep are not disturbed by the noise from other parts of the house. Directly to the rear of the dining room is the kitchen, modeled along the very latest ideas of home building in that it is small, compact but com plete in all details. The large awk ward kitchen has no place in the mod ern home. They only mean extra work for the housewife because of their size. A small pantry is built off one corner of the kitchen. A modern bathroom completes the floor plan ar rangement. It is obvious that an attractive home like this will appeal to many families who are planning on building a home of their own, not only because of its picturesque appearance and charming interior arrangement, but because of its reasonableness in cost. It is free from any feeling of crowding, and a wonderful place for children. What most homeseekers need Is the stimu lus to make their ambitions a reality, and certainly a home like this will do much toward bringing this result about. ‘ REAL “PRINCE OF DENMARK” Hamlet Not Altogether a Creation of the Brain of the Greatest of English Writers. Hamlet, the hero of Shakespeare’s most famous tragedy, Is a personage who appears in history, yet is half mythological, bflt has been trans formed by the genius of the English poet Into one of the most dominating figures of literature. It is allowed that Shnkespeare’s Hamlet was sug gested by the Hamlet, or Amleth, of Saxo Grammaticus. The latter's “His tory of Denmark” had been published ir Paris in 1514. Francois de Belle forest included the tale of Hamleth in his “Tragic Histories” (1570), an English translation of which appeared in 1608. Shakespeare’s drama was written earlier than this last date and must have derived its plot either from De Belleforest’s work or a translation executed before the end of the Six teenth century, -unless the poet, who, it is known, was a great reader of histories, took the incident direct from Saxo Grammaticus. to According to the Danish historian.* the present. With thousands marry ing each year, the number of new homes being erected to house them is sadly inadequate. It is estimated there are a million homes short in the United States. That is why every family should seriously consider the possibility of getting a home of its own. For the family of moderate means the bungalow affords an excel lent shelter. It is small, comparative ly inexpensive, and delightfully cozy and comfortable. Moreover it is dis tinctively individual in design. Such a home is the charming bun galow shown here with floor plans. Low rambling design, it forms a very pleasing picture with its immaculate white stucco exterior and seelusive front porch recessed under an exten sion of the roof. It gives an impres sior of bigness, but really is not as large as it looks at a glance, as the dimensions show. This bungalow home is 30 feet wide and 39 feet long on the longest side which includes the wing containing the rear bedroom. The windows are unique and ample, insuring plenty of light and ventila tion in all parts of the home. Two triple windows provide light for the dining room, a large cheerful room on the right front, 1(1 feet 6 inches by 13 feet. The porch is a few steps above the walk and very attractively sur rounded by broad stucco balustrades and protected by an arch of the same material. The front door opens di rectly into the living room, the larg est room in the home, being 17 feet 6 inches by 13 feet. The living and din ing rooms are connected by a wide open doorway. Leading from the liv ing room is a narrow hall which gives access to the two bedrooms and equipped with space-saving garment carriers which eliminate much*a»£Tlie waste entailed by old^ashioned clothes closets. Each bedroom lias splendid ventilation facilities and win dow space. The rear bedroom has windows on two sides. Moreover in being separated from the living rooms as they are, the people who wish to Humloth was prince of Jutland; his father, the king of Jutland, had been murdered by his own brother, Fengo, who took the throne anil queen of the dead man. Humleth feigned madness to save bis own life. He stabbed one of Fengo'* courtiers, sent to spy upon him, and for this purpose concealed himself under a truss of straw. He reproached his mother with her shameful second marriage to such ef fect that she promised to help him in avenging his father by putting Fengo to death—a promise which she kept. These nre the very incidents Shakespeare has selected for his play, sometimes emphasizing the points of the narrative, sometimes softening them or changing them, in harmony with his own vivid conception of dramatic requirements. Shakespeare’s “Hamlet” was first played in 1000 or 1001, and first printed.in 1603. President Eliot Was Oarsman. The Varsity club at Harvard uni versity is made up of athletes who have won their letter in competition. At a recent luncheon of the club the names of all the graduates present, in llie order of their classes, were read, and first upon the list was the name of President Emeritus Charles IV. El iot. ’53. President Eliot was a noted Har vard oarsman in his day, and he told tlie club -youngsters present of how the Harvard color was chosen by a six-oared crew in which he rowed while lie was in college. Harvard “crimson” at one time degenerated to magenta, according to color historians at Cambridge, but deep research has developed that the true shade is ar terial red. Letters of Recommendation. “Billy” Williams, United States commissioner of internal revenue, says a lawyer told him once that “a letter of recommendation does not evi dence a man’s ability, but merely sig nifies the amiability of the writer.” That is about as solid a truth as one will see in a day’s work. Every ready letter writer will agree to that. Many lettefs tell the truth about the man for whom they are written, but they rarely tell the whole truth. If there’ ere unpleasant facts about tile bearer, of the letter, the writer lias been dis-L’ creetly and courteously silent in re spect to them. It is not his business to argue and analyze. It is his job to give a friend a life.—The Mont gomery (Ain.) Advertiser. Wealthy Indians. A great many Indians are very wealthy and own a great (leal of both real and personal property. A large number of them are fully enfranchised | citizens of the United States. The commissioner of Iudian affairs says that every effort is made to induce the Indian settlers on the reservations to improve themselves and make use of the opportunity America offers them to become citizens. FROZE ICE CREAM WITH HAIL STONES Henry A. Bryant of Corea telephoned to a Bar Harbor business man Monday of last week and asked him how much of a hail storm there had been in Bar Har bor. The Bar Harbor man replied that we had had a little hail storm.' The Co rea man then said that the storm at Co rea had been the worst that he had ever seen, that the hail stones had been the size of nutmegs and that he himself had scraped up enough of these hail stones with which to freeze five gallons of ice cream. Other reports from across the bay are to the effect that the storm was the worst in years.—Bar Harbor Record. MEETING OF PISCATAQUIS OIL* COMPANY A special meeting of Piscataquis Oil Co. was held a few days ago and it was voted to authorize the directors to make a contract with D. J. Coulter, a success ful Pennsylvania oil driller, to drill a well. > The lumber is on the ground for the I derrick auu wora on u will begin at once. It is expected that the machinery for drilling will arrive from Pennsylvania by the time it is completed. It was also-voted to increase the num ber of stockholders to 200. American Legion Notes Instances where the American Legion has lent a helping hand in times of cat astrophe as well aa in the ordinary rou tine of civil life are reported almost daily to national headquarters. Between 6,000 and 7,000 maple trees are to be planted along the Lincoln high way in St. Joseph and Laporte counties in Indiana, as a memorial to the soldiers from the two counties who lost their lives in the World War. The planting will be in charge of the American Legion PoSts at South Bend and Laporte. “The charge has been made that the Legion was a capitalistic institution, but its very composition is enough to prove that such an accusation is absolutely baseless. The Legion’s big job at the present time is to win decent treatment for several thousand disabled veterans and to provide employment for approxi mately 400,000 more who are now jobless, j Nothing very capitalistic about that pro gram, is there?” Texas and Arkansas Legion members assisted in the recovery of 100 bodies of I victims of the recent Texas tornado as ! well as carrying on relief work among the survivors. The Williams Post of the Legion at Clifton Forge, Va , has ar ranged to take up picks and shovels to help the city build a (10,000 playground. The spring municipal house cleaning in Kansas City, Mo., and Eunice, La., re ceived fresh impetus when Legion mem bers provided wagons and fatigue details for the work.
