Buttered Pop-Corn, pure "They're pure and COME EARLY NEW lARIFt LAW A BRIEF EXPOSITION What Representative McCall Said of It. There has been no more interesting exposition of the new tariff law for the general reader than the following brief speech of Mr. McCall. a very conservative member of the ways and means committee, as well as a mem ber of the conference committee. Mr. McCall said: Mr. Speaker: I always listen to the gentleman from Missouri, who is the leader of the minority party, with a great deal of pleasure, although I do not find myself usually in agreement with his conclusions: but he demon strated absolutely today two proposi tions. He first stated that he could take two men, exjrert in the use of figures, and could prove two antagon istic conclusions with reference to the tariff. The figures would not lie, but the experts would. And he then pro ceeded to present a set of figures to the house which proved that he must have employed the services of the most accomplished liar in North America. (Lavgiiter.) And 1 ant not questioning the figures at all, but the conclusions to which they appear to lead. His expert had taken up the different schedules of the pending bill, and attempted to show that it gave no practical reductionCand he employed figures to reach the conclusion in this way: He took the revenues that are now derived under these schedules and the revenues that he "figures" will be derived under the proposed hill, anil he calculated up from the difference in the revenues that the reduction was practically nothing. But what a trans parent fallacy was involved: It has been the contention of nobody that the bill before the house was going "tv reduce the revenues at the custom houses. (n the other hand, we have had it in view to increase those rev enues. If we bad made the duties line POSTUM Czr As Advertised, Today Only Tempting as The Fruits ot Eden sweet and good to eat, a toothsome treat that can't be beat." They have just one fault, the more you eat the more you want they taste just like more. Free samples prohibitive, there would be no rev enue, and by this method it would be argued that we hud revised the tariff downward. We might have brought in a bill founded on the English system, where upon five articles alone, counting liq uors as one, they produce ft revenue At the custom ho.ise of more ..nan $ir.R,nno,OiM. Multiply that by 2, which is about the ratio of our popu lation to that of Great Rritain, and we should produce over $217,000,000 upon those five articles. A tariff bill like that would le a free-trade tariff; and yet, iion the theory of the gen tleman's expert, we should have pro duced no downward revision of the tariff, because the revenues would not have been decreased. Then the gentleman demonstrated another fact. Those of us who have the pleasure of knowing Mrs. Clark know that she is a woman of re markably good sense. The gentleman from Missouri proceeded to prove that fact to the house by saying that after she had read Mr. Payne's re port she said his tariff bill would save to the American people $T,00o, 000,000 every year. That, to my mind, was a highly sensible observation. Now let us look at the striking fact brought out by he statistics that were produced by the chairman of the committee on ways and means. Me shows that we have reduced du ties upon articles which are consum ed in the United States to the amount of about $3,000,000,000 every year. Well, what is the democratic theory? The democratic theory is that the people are not merely taxed upon goods that are entered at the custom house, but there is also an equivalent :ax put on all those commodities pro-.j uueeu in tne i nueu states ana con sumed here. Whether that theory is true in its extent or not, there is no doubt that customs duties upon goods in many cases increase the price to the consumer of the same kind of gooil produced in this country; and when the chairman of the committee m ways and means show that this bill decreases the duty upon articles consumed by the American people, necessary nrticles( to the amount of $.-,ooo,ooo,fliiO a year, and that it only increases the duties uion goods' con sumed to the amount, excluding luxu ries, of $272,000,000 a year, it seems IL&sy Has Grape-Nuts as its foundation.

Read the little book, "The Road to Wellville," inpkgs. CEREAL CO., LTD, Battle and wholesome TRADE AT THE to me he has demonstrated conclu sively the tendency of this bill. It ic said that this Is not u revision downward. Why, it Is impossible for any fair-minded man to take these schedules and to go through them from beginning to end and deny that it is the most effective revision down ward undertaken by any tariff bill ever presented to the American con gress. You can count on the fingers of one hand in the chemical schedule the In creases, if you leave out luxuries, while there is a whole page of de creases, and among them the great chemical sulphate of ammonia, which is put upon the free list, various forms of lead, various forms of potash those chemicals that enter Into manu facture and into the consumption of our people. And then take the iron and steel schedule. We begin by making a re duction from 40 cents to 15 cents a ton in the duty uMn iron ore, which lies at the basis of all manufactures of iron and steel. We reduce the duty upon pig iron, which is used by so many industries, from $4 to $2.50 a ton. We reduce the duty on scrap iron from $4 to $1 a ton. We cut in two the duty on steel rails. The steel schedule presents a reduction which amounts practically to cutting It in two. Yet we have adjusted these cuts to the conditions of the industry, and we believe that they will not result in harming any part of this country. The duty upon coal is cut 33 per cent. The duty upon petroleum and Its products is removed altogether. And so it is throughout the whole bill. Take the duty upon hides. They have been upon the free list ever since we have been a nation, with the ex ception of two or three intervals, and this bill places them there again. We do not believe that it will In any way aftVct the cattle-growing Industry In this. country; but the removal of the duty Is far more than compensated for by the radical cuts made in leather. In boots and shoes. In harness and sad dlery. In these paragraphs the duties are practically cut in two. Mr. Speaker, the question before the house is: Shall this reKrt be voted up or shall it be voted down? If it is voted down you bring in chaos; you throw open all these hundred of dif ferences to amendment. You will see nothing but disintegration. You will Meal Creek, Mic h 2 for 5c One 5c "Get the Habit" not have tariff revision at this session, if. Indeed, you have it at the next. The question before the House is: Shall we sustain a republican president? Shall we carry out the pledges of a Repub lican platform? Mr. Taft, when he was a candidate for the presidency, took the people In to his confidence and frankly announc ed that if he were elected he would attempt to bring about a revision of the tariff downward upon the lines of protection. That policy beyond ques tion is reflected in this bill. It Is a great government measure. It Is one of the most monumental measures ever presented to an American congress. It is a measure the passage of which is desired by a republican president. It is the first great policy of his admin istration. I say to y.u it would be most damaging to him, it would be most damaging to the cause of a re vision of the tariff, either up or down, if enough republicans withheld their votes from this measure to defeat it. It would, at the threshold of his ad ministration, subject him to a damag ing repulse, and it would keep alive agitation; it would keep uncertainty Itanging over business. My friend from Illinois (Mr. Mann) does not want this rert to be ac cepted lecause he thinks that the cut on print paper from $6 to $S a ton to J:i.75 a ton is not sufficiently drastic n the other hand, the gen tlemen who represent the great paper producing districts of the country be lieve that a cut even to $3.75 will render disaster. This is only an il lustration of the difficulties we shall face. We will have many conflicting views of this kind. If this report is thrown open, the gentleman from Il linois will probably not see his views prevail, and the gentleman from .'"W York (Mr. Malby) may not .ee his views prevail. If in a tariff bill ap plying to some 4,00 articles every duty imr't first le adjusted to please everybody, or, indeed", anybody, we should never ..:i,e legislation. From lieeossity such a bill involves com promises. Some of the provisions of this bill, standing alone, I should v te auainst. Hut as a whole I Ix-liey.; it a righteous measure, and as such It will have my vote. We will have a conflict of forces, w? will have disin tegration and chaos. If the report Is ".'-d down; and in he interests of v.ood legislation, .'md to put upoi the statute books what I believe i.-,, upon the whole, as good a tariff law as was ever passed by the American congress, I apiteal to the members upon this side of the chamber to give their votes in favor of the report. (Applause on the republican side). o THE INDIGENT RUSH BEGINNING EARLY The Supervisor Already Overwhelmed With Applications for Aid. Olrcat drafts are being made upon the Indigent fund of the county at a time of the year when they have us ually been lightest. All sorts of re quests are preferred. One woman has been haunting the board of supervis orrs to get a railroad ticket to send her father-in-law back to his home In the east. She resented the question ing of the board as to her claim for aid. She said that as a heavy tax payer of the county she had a right to make such a request. Day before yesterday another man culled. He said he had been work ing In the Roosevelt tunnel, where the water dripped down upon him until he had contracted sciatic rheumatism nnd wanted to go Agua Caliente Hot Springs for treatment. Representing that he had no means of paying his railroad fare, the board got him a half-fare ticket, but later ho called on the board and f aid that he had learned that there were no longer public bath ing facilities at the springs and. he would like to have the value of the ticket in cash. Chairman Hoghe ex plained that such a disposition of the public money would be irregular; it couldn't be done. Mr. Hoghe said that the only thing the board could do would be to send him to the county hospital. The man replied that he would prefer to go to the Potter's field. "You have your choice," said the chairman. Yesterday the appli cant for aid called again. He was willing to go to the hospital. It has always been the purpose of the board to refuse admission to the hospital to all except those whose residence in the county has given them some sort of claim. That pur pose has never been carried out very long at a time for the applicants plant themselves before the board, saying. -I'm here and you'll have to take care of me somehow." These, applications are unusually pkg. Puffed Rice Crispettes, crisp and for everyone, toys ARCADE numerous now and the board is appre hensive of the runh which will occur a little later. The high water mark of $15,000 for the care of indigents Is likely to be surpassed. CHILDREN KILLED AT A CROSSING. Kennet, Mo., Aug. 1 i. Driving to a church at Frisbie station last night, five children of A. H. Hyde, a farmer, were killed by a St, Louis Frisco train which struck them on a cross ing. WHIST. There has lately been so much fevered and heated discussion about declaring a protective spade on one's own deal when one has no strength In any suit, that I am glad to be able to quote the first recorded hand in which this ruse was practiced In America. As there may be some little curiosity about it I shall quote the four hands of this particular deal in full. The hand was played at the Whist club, in New York, in March, 1900. Mr. John Oleason, a remark ably fine bridge played, held Z's hand, and declared spades at the score of love all on the second game, he and his partner having won the first. The cards were dealt In the following or der: Z (dealer). 8. 7, 4, of hearts; 6. 5. St. of clubs; f, 3, 2, of diamonds; jack, 10. 9, 4, of spades. A (leader). 9, 3, of hearts; queen, 9, 8, ,2of clubs; jack, 7, 6, 4, of dia monds; queen, 8, 3. of spades. Y (dummy). Ace, 6, 5, of hearts; ace. 7. 4. of clubs; king. 10, 9, ,8, of diamonds; ace, 7, 2, of spades. ' B (third hand). King, queen, jackr 10. 2, of hearts; king. jack. 10. of clubs; ace, queen, of diamonds; king, 6, i, of spades. This original make of spades so frightened and mystified the third hnnd that he failed to double, al though, with his cards, a double seems a fairly sure risk. He afterward ex plained that he thought Z must have had a battalion of spades, or he would not have declared them with the score at love all. As the hand was actually played Y-Z lost three by cards, but scored four by honors. Had Mr. Gleason passed the make, the dummy would have been obliged to declare no trumps and third hand would cer tainly have doubled so as to be sure of a heart lead. At no trumps, doubled, Y-Z would Buy your Wood and Coal for the winter now and save money. Four-foot Mesqulte Wood delivered at $6.00 a cord, a saving of $1.50 over winter prices.

Since this declaration of Mr. flleason's, way back In 1900, the "pro Costs More to Make Than Other Whiskies The annual whiskey production of Kentucky Is about 30,000,000 gallons, consisting of good, bad and indifferent whiskies principally Indifferent.
