THE INCOME TAX.
It is interesting to know that those
who are enjoying large Incomes will
soon be called upon to pay a new tax
This is the income tax provided for in
the new tariff bill. It applies to all
incomes over $4,000, the excess being
taxed at the rate of 2 per cent. More'
over, it applies to incomes now being
enjoyed, it being provided that returns
hall be made of all incomes over $3,500
beginning with the calendar year 1894.
Those whose incomes are more than
$3,500 but less than $4,000 will not have
to pay taxes, but they will be obliged
t to make returns.
will come under the provisions of the
law, and it will be interesting, jf any
body can get at the facts, to know what
sort of schedules shall be filed. The
law makes the entire tax secret, and it
is not likely that the department will
permit anyone to gain access to the
figures. It is a singular fact that the
government proposes to raise revenue
without giving the public access to its
books, but such is the case. The law
is claimed to be constitutional, but the
people will always wonder how they
have happened to confer authority Upon
the government to establish a secret
While the constitutionality of the law
is very generally admitted there is a
determination among some moneyed
men to contest the point, and it is said
that suits will be started when the
proper time comes to determine
whether or not the tax can be col
Singularly enough, this point was
raised nearly 30 years ago by one of our
present Democratic congressmen, Wil
liam M. Springer, of Illinois. In 1865
he had an income of $50,798 and a tax
of $4799.80 was levied" on it. He resist
ed payment, claiming the law was un
constitutional. His house was seized
and sold to satisfy the claim, and in a
resulting it was held by the United
States supreme court that the tax was
constitutional. ThiB would seem to set
tle the question, and those who have
incomes in excess of $4,000 may expect
to be obliged to pay the tax upon the
CHEAH LABOR. ,
'In China wages are six cents a day.
Man is the cheapest thing that walks
the earth excepting, perhaps, women.
The Japanese boast of a superior civili
zation, but even among them man is the
cbief beast of burden, and for a few pen
nies per day one can have himself trans
ported in a two-wheeled vehicle over
the narrow roads of the country with a
fellow-man serving the double function
of horse and lackey.
Cheap labor is the inevitable accom
paniment of Elavery. From paganism
to Christian civilization is an ascend
ing scale of wages. Shall we, 'in this
country of light, liberty and Christian
homes, permit indnstryto be oriental
ized? If we permit it or palliate it in
servile submission to an unchristian
spirit of greed, then we assist in turning
the hands on the dial of civilization
backward, and deliberately put on pa
Where labor is cheap life is cheap.
Where the woman is a slave to the man,
the man is a slave to the ruling despot.
Where the despot is a rapicious,
effeminate, sensual mogul, the god typi
fied in the pagan idol is set up in his
own image. May the lesson of cheap
men and cheap labor in the east not be.
lost. We propose to maintain intact
Christian wages, Christian homes and
Christian morals in America, and to
protest in a Christian spirit all attempts
to orientalize them.
NEWSPAPERS IN THE SCHOOLS.
The America Library association has
discovered that newspapers are better
eduoatixE than dead literature. The
association advises the introduction of
daily papers in the schools.
That is getting education in the
schools as it should be. There are cur
rent happenings of vastly more im
portance thaa ancient history and
scholars should be encouraged to study
subjects which will be of more practi
cal and steedy benefit.
It may not be necessary to drop any
of the subjects now being studied, bnt
is of great importance that students in
our public schools should not be ig
norant of what is going on of National
and local importance from day to dav.
About the strangest thing to a well
informed person of this age is to Bee a
man or woman who does not read the
newspapers. It is an essential part of
every man's business.
The Yukon Press is the latest
Alaskan journalistic enterprise. It is
published twice a year and is devoted
to missionary work and mining inter
ests. It is the most northern publica
tion on the continent, yubliehed as it is
within the shadow of the Arctic circle.

MONEY GIVES SOCIAL TONE.
The Best Deportment Found Among Those
Accustomed to Wealth.
' Long-inherited wealth, together with
the power it brings, creates a kind of
social elimate in which most of the
qualities which give charm to social
intercourse ripen in a way that is not
possible elsewhere and acquire more
delicate flavors, says an article in
the North American Review.
This is not indeed most true, but true
most obviously with regard to charm
of manner; for manner, though its
raw material is always personal tem
perament, is in its finished state the
result of social circumstances and
bears something the same relation to
them that its scent does to a flower;
and, though the greatest charm of
manner is a personal gift, like genius,
and though persons who have enjoyed
the same social advantages possess it no
doubt in very different degrees, it is
only in the best society that its great
est and finest charm is, as a rule, pos
sible; and the manner of any average
man or woman brought up in such
society is, undoubtedly, with few ex
ceptions, more agreeable than it would
have been had the person in question
been brought up in other circum-
This will, perhaps, be more readily
understood when a fact is mentioned
which, though absolutely true, is the
exact reverse of what many people
imagine, and that is that manner in
the best society is distinguished before
all things by its simplicity and absence
of affectation a simplicity which is
mainly due to that command of life
of which I have already spoken and
the fact that the conventions which
those in question obey are conventions
which are made or sanctioned by them
selves and themselves only. It is only
in the best society that this complete
simplicity is to be found combined with
the highest polish.
THE VAMPIRE BAT.
A Dread Creature That Is Common In
I- have always despised bats, said a
Cleveland man recently, and it always
sends a shudder over me whenever one
of the hideous creatures approaches
me. The bats of this country, how
ever, are not to be dreaded in compar
ison to those of the vampire species
which abound in India. Just imagine
a big mouse with a horn on his head
like a rhinocerous, furnish him with a
pair of demon-like wing's, and you have
a very good picture of this latter kind.
The natives dread the vampire bat on
account of his Wood-sucking propensi
ty. In the sultry nights he fans the
heated sleeper with his wings while
his neeule-like teeth are being in
serted into the veins of his victim,
quenching his thirst for blood with
such gentleness that it is only by some
fortunate chance that he is discovered
before the mischief is done. It is a
well-authenticated fact that if an indi
vidual ia Oiice bled by a vaiaire he is
invariably chosen, in preference to all
others equally exposed for a subseqent
attack, and even if lie were to move
ten or twenty miles away, no im
munity is gained thereby, as the bat is
sure to follow him and keep up his
blood-thirsty attack until his victim
succumbs or the animal is discovered
and killed. Cattle and horses, from
being more exposed, are more frequent
ly chosen as the subjects of attack by
these loathsome creatures.
STORY CF A CAT.
Curled 80 Much Electricity That a Car
Is Set on Fire.
The efficacy of a black cat as a light
ning rod has been too frequently the
subject of discussion and assertion to
be treated at length at the present
time, the drift of which is to show the
apt manner in which an illustration of
this popular belief can be deduced
from an incident that occurred on the
evening of the Fourth of July to the
wife of a well-knowiLtwsiness man of
On the evening in question the young
matron had been expending consider
able time and attention upon a hand
some black eat, which she continued to
stroke, notwithstanding the assertion
of her family that by so doing she was
charging herself with electricity.
Finally after dark the young matron
decided that a pleasant way of wind
ing up the evening would be to go for
a ride on the electric car to Bethesda.
Accordingly, inviting two of her
friends to accompany her, she set out
for the ride in high spirits.

The trio found places together near
the middle of the car, and had gone a
short distance beyond the power house
when their conversation was inter
rupted by the . conductor hurriedly
bending over them as though to avert
some catastrophe beneath and telling
them to leave the car with all speed,
as it was on fire.- Scarcely had they
left their seats before a sheet of Came
burst through the floor just beneath
the very spot over which the young
matron had been sitting, the electrical
apparatus beneath having ignited at
that very point.
Cat'seyes. Ancient anil Modern.

ornament, is a very different thing from
the ancient .cat's eye, or eyestone of
India, an agate cut so as to" sliow the
so-called eye or eyes. It is supposed by
some that this latter was used as mon
ey in many parts of India four centu
ries ago. and specimens found to-day
have an interest of numismatists.
