was that any form of taxation of state securities
was an invasion of the rights of states. : But to that '
the reply was made that the federal inheritance law
now levies a tax on securities which are otherwise
tax-exempt and that this amendment would simply
add an additional tax to that portion of estate com
posed of tax-exempt securities.
The support given the Kenyon amendment is
significant of - the growing sentiment in favor of
eliminating the tax-exemption of future issues of
'securities. It is doubtful if one vote for 'such a
measure would have been cast in the senate four
years 'ago, while in this case it lacked only one vote
of adoption.
To be more or less passively in ac
cord with our lot and degree, as these
are assigned us, is excellent; to be
actively resolved to advance above
that level by self-culture,' by ambi
tion, by heroic struggle and sacrifice,
is much better.

A Keynote and a Falsa Note
! The keynote sounded by Chairman Cordell Hull ,
of the Democratic national committee is a false .
note, the inharmony of which with facts must be
detected by all who heard it. The speech instead of
being merely an attack upon Republicanism, as such
speeches are expected to be, combined with a pledge
of ' future Democratic performances, a 'defense
of the past performances of the party upon which the
nation a year and two months ago passed judgment
most decisively.
"Democrats," said Mr. Hull, "were loyal and con
sistent friends of the ex-service men." Now, a very
large number of ex-service men are not convinced
that they have friends among either the Democrats
or Republicans in congress. Certainly little was done
for them by any agency during the two years and
a half of the Democratic administration after the
signing of the armistice. However friendly the
Democrats may have been there was little of con
crete Tesults. The Democrats through that period
may not be held responsible for any failure of
accomplishment through lack of legislation, but under
the war powers vested in the administration some
things might have been done, but we witnessed little
but overlapping effort and wild confusion. So the
loyalty and friendship of the Democrats to the ex
service men bore no fruits.
"Ever solicitous of his welfare," continues the
chairman, "the Democratic party, when in power,
did more to advance the interest of the farmer than '
had been done in all ' the previous history of the
nation, and had planned to do much more if it had
remained in power." .
And what is the condition of the farmer now?
Can it be said that the Republican party in the nine
months of it control has robbed the farmer of the
benefits the Democratic party conferred upon him .
during the eight years his ascendancy T
The present Republican congress was confronted
by the most comprehensive program for the relief
of the farmer that was ever formulated. And it has
fulfilled much of the program and has much more of
it under way. Are the things it has done for the
farmer the things the Democratic party would have
done if that party had not been turned out of power
largely by a farmer vote'? Did the fanner, who is
the best judge of the results of the efforts of the
Democratic party In his behalf, appreciate these
results?
While the agricultural program has not been
carried out in full by the Republicans in the brief
space of e(ght months there has been notable legis
lation in his behalf and such executive emergency
relief has been extended to him as it was possible
to extend under the powers possessed by the admin
istration. It cannot be said that the Republican party has
done all for the farmer it should do or that it has
yet fully met its pledges to him in its national plat
form. It may fail in both.though we hope it will not
and believe it will not. But the very fact that so
much yet remains to be done for the farmer, is proof
that the Democratic solicitude for the farmer, de
scribed by Mr. Hull, was futile solicitude. If the
Republican party has failed in much for the farmer,
it has failed in accomplishing what the Democratic
" party when in power failed to accomplish.
McGuffey's Readers
Speaking again of McGuffey's Readers, which we
yesterday had occasion to mention in connection with
the subject of text-books. Dr. Frank Crane in an
article in The Republican the same day by a curious
coincidence, stated that Henry Ford, by securing with
great difficulty a First Reader, had now the series
complete from the First, to the Seventh.
(It Dr. Crane 'meant "first and seventh inclusive"
. as he undoubtedly did, we think he has introduced
into the series one more reader than Dr. McGuffey
ever, knew about. Still we may be mistaken, but
with what we have always regarded as an intimacy
with - McGuffey's Readers, we never heard of a
Seventh.
There were originally five readers in the series.
Later there was a revision in which a new First
Reader, of simpler selections and printed in larger
type, was added. The older First Reader was also
simplified and given a new and larger dress of type,
and called the Second Reader, and so on through
the list, the more difficult selections in each reader
were either dropped or transferred to the next higher
' reader of the series, the last of which waich was
called the Sixth.
- we suppose, among the readers of The Repub
lican there are many who will be able to correct
- either us or Dr. Crane.

Tax Exempt Securities
There is a strong sentiment in the senate against
tax-exempt securities, but there is nothing that can
be done as to the securities already . acquired by
holders, so that provision can only be made against
further hiding places for the tax-dodgers.
An effort was made to catch them by an in
heritance tax on tax-exempt securities and later
that will probably be accomplished. The following
amendment was offered by Senator Kenyon to the
revenue bill: ,
"Provided, That in addition to taxes heretofore
levied by this section there shall be imposed a tax
equivalent to 15 per cent upon the value of the
securities of such estates so transferred by whatso
ever authority issued, which securities have not been
taxed under the federal income or excess-profits
tax laws, and which were sold after six months sub
sequent to the passage of this act by the authority
issuing the same."
The vote on this amendment was taken after
midnight when a third of the senators were absent,
and it was defeated by a tie vote, 32 to 32. It was
generally believed that with a full vote the amend
ment would have carried.
The constitutionality of the proposed amend
ment was thoroughly considered and it was agreed
that no amendment to the national constitution
would be required to make such inheritance tax ef
fective. The conclusion was reached that an In
heritance tax is not a tax on tax-exempt securities
but on the privilege of inheritance.
That question was found to have been deter
mined in the case of Plummer vs. Coler, the principle
involved in that case being summarized as follows:
'State securities are not exempt from federal in
heritance taxes; The exemption of state agencies and
instrumentalities from federal taxation does not
extend to the exemption of state and municipal
securities from a federal inheritance tax. These last
are subject to federal taxation on the same principle
that federal securities are subject to a state inher
itance tax. The tax is upon the right of inheritance
and not upon the property Inherited."
The chief objection to the Kenjon amendment
Extreme poverty is sometimes the cause of do
mestic discontent and unnapplness, but we'll have to
look beyond that to find out what was wrong in the

Don't Make New Year Resolutions Industry
Is Bad Enough Now
To the editor: '
Well friends, I suppose you know
what day this Sunday is without me
reminding you. namely New Yrs. day
which is the day when so many peo
ple makes resolutions which they
think will improve themselfs in some
way, either swear off habits that
ain't good for their health or quit
wasteing so much money or something.
It is generally always the men
folks that does the e wearing off,
maybe because the ladies is all ready
perfect, but whatever is the reason it
is the gents of my. sex that makes
the most important resolutions wile
all the women do is stand around
and get ready to laugh, except in a
few cases where a woman will may
be get into the spts. of the occasion
and take a oath to not loose her
pocket book more than 5 times dure-
lng the comelng yr. or promise that
every 4th. or 6th. remark her hus
band makes dureing 1922, she will
pretend to listen.
But it is the men s resolutions
which I wish to speak about them
at this time, and I hope my reaMers
won't be shocked when I make the
remark that for at lease this one
New Trs. day it will be better for
the gen. well fare if no resolutions
is made.
A remark like this kind no doubt
demands a explanation and I am not
the man who would make such a
remark without being able to explain
same. Well then, it ain t necessary
to tell nobody that we have been in
the throws of a business slump and
that same ain t - over yet and that
when a man quits smokelng or drink
ing or decides to become a tight wad
he is dealing a blow to business in
gen. and a specially the boot legging
business and the united cigar stores.
Everybody knows that these is
facts but what they may not know
is that they's other, branchs of in
dustrys that is effected even worse
by the swearing off evil and that
these branchs Is all ready stareing
ruin right in the eye. I refer to the
allied professions of doctor, nurse
and undertaker and that part of the
real estate game that specializes in
6 ft. lots.
ALWAYS A SILVER LINING
I suppose you seen in the papers a
wileago where the Insurance com
panys reported that 1921 was the
healthiest yr. In history. Well the
day afer that report came out they
was 3 undertakers in N. Y. city alone
that applied for a bankrupt and
when they asked them what was the
matter with their business, they said
so many people seemed to of give up
dying.
About the same time a friend of
mine got a letter from a nurse in Chi
who said that she was looking around
for another job as they wasn t no
case no more. Doctors is starveing
to death all over the U. S. and Cana
da wile hospitals are getting such a
rotten play that some of the ones
that used to be proud is now think
ing about putting up a electric sign:'
"Welcome Leppers."
That is the condition these branchs
of Industry in in and they's only one
answer namely, that we are too dog
gone well all ready without trying to
get no better. Even under the pres
ent conditions, which is said to be the
worst in historv from a doctor's or
pall bearer's standpoint, a big ma- I
jority of the people engaged in these j
kind or arts is headed for the rocks
and what will it be if a few more of
their prospective customers decides
not to drink or smoke ourself to
death. A panic ain't the word.
The worst of this situation is that
the gents and ladles effected by same
is not the kind that can meet the sit
uation and save themselfs by
changeing their line of business the
way some people could, like for inst.
you take a brewer arid when the law
was past vs. beer, why he could still
use his brewery to manufacture near
beer or yeast or something, or you
take a man that use to run a livery
barrj. why when people begin drive
ing cars instead of horses, all he had
to do was to get rid of his horses and
morals and call his Joint a gnrage.

The babies of these present days are raised upon a system. "'
You count their calories of food, and on a card you list 'em;
They're spanked upon a schedule and petted by the clock
And you musn't ever jounce 'em and you mustn't ever rock: i
Physicians choose their style of dress and fix their hours of sleeo
And tell you when they ought to laugh and when they ought to weep.
Their every eccentricity is catalogued and filed.
For the modern type of baby is a scientific child!
Time was that mothers raised them in a rather casual way.
With a bit of help from grandma but that isn't done today;
For the bringing up of babies is a far from simple art
And you need a dozen volumes and a blue print and a chart,
A clinical thermometer, a etethescope, a scale,
Some test tubes and a distaphone that registers each wail,
The modern mother's regimen is very far from mild.
For the baby of the present is a scientific child!
Oh. the old folks sniff about it and the jesters jest a lot
But tBe modern type of baby is a healthy little tot,
He may be robbed of baby-talk, of many pats and kisses.
But there's a heap of colic and of other ills he misses;
And in spite of all the sentiment that in our cosmos lurks
There isn't any question that the modern method works.
For the scientific baby is a husky little tad,
A credit to the doctor, and the mother and the dad!
