It ia proposed by the Democrat* to abate the tariff tax on building material for Ban Franoiaoo while that oity is bsing rebuilt. Bat the Repablioan standpatters are sec retly opposing it, aa it will call at. tention to the iniqaities of the pres ! ent tariff law, wdiob fosters trusts! and oombines and proteots them in obtainiiyi and continuing present] high prices, The Democrats in Con gress will unite in voting forrebat-1 ing the duUes paid on all building The tariff tax on steel, glass, nails and lumber is all protective of the oombinea that aim to oontrol the prioe and avoid competition. The tariff on structural steel, nails, eto., is from 36 per oent to 87 per cent. On common window glass from 37 to 115 per oent aooording to size,) and on plate glass from 49 to 140 per oent Oa lumber planed on one side 22 percent and up to 30 per oent for fl joring. On paints from 48 to per oent and oa lin I seed oil 52 per oent. There are other materials that used in the building whioH pay an I average peroentage as follows: Brick and Tile 32; Marble 55; Cement 25; Wall paper 25; Iron and Steel pipe 30; Stone 50; Lead 82; Tin plates 34; Lime 34; Varnish I 97. To refund these tariff taxes will be an enormous saving to the home builders of San Franoisoo and will I open the eyes of home builders I everywhere to the tax upon build ing hemes. , The trusts and oombines have suck a firm oontrol of the market I for moat of the materials that entei into buildings that they have in-1 oreased prices sinoe the tariff bill was enaoted fully 40 per oent on the average, and there is but little opportunity for oompetition to I keep them within reasonable I bounds. The materials that enter into a building are, in relation to I it, raw materials, jaet as much eel pig iron is to the finished stove. The question to be oonsidered by I voters in eleoting the next Congress I is whether they will vote to reduce the tariff rates enough to induce I foreign oompetition, unless the I trusts and oombines lower their I prioes to the level to prevent the I foreign goods from ooming in and I underselling them. If the tariff on building materials and other] necessities were neoessary to pro I teot Amerioan workmen, employed at gocd living wages, ?he tariff tax payers?and that is everybody?] would perhaps bear it patiently] until the plundering system oonld | be revised for the benegt of all alike. But the tariff increased ] prioe paid by the Amerioan people I should only be enough more than I the European prioes to oover the difference betwein wages there and ] here. The transportation oharges | alone on such heavy materials arei enough proteotion in themselves.] The high oost of building ma- ] terial has so inoreased the oast of ] homes that rents have advanced | about 25 per cent. The farmer] who builds a new bouse, or barn, is oompelled to pay abopt 40 per] oent more for the materials, so the] inoreased money invested is a olear loss to him and the interest on the | same is virtually a yearly rent ] charge for living in his own house. There is no reason why this tar iff taiTon building materials should be oontinued for the government collection from this Bouroe is less than 2 per oent of the federal rev enue. The standpat argument that protection is needed to pro teot Amerioan labor is, aooording to their own theories, not applioa to building materials whioh are raw material to be manufactured by the workmen into buildings. The only reason, therefore, for this tariff proteotion is to enable the trusts to extort enormous profits from every family, either in the form of inoreased rent or as a tax upon homes. Tqe natural desire of everyone is to own their own home, but the Republican plan of protecting the trusts and oombines deoreases the opportunity of a large increasing number of people from ever being homeowners Th-j home is the pedestal upon whiob Democratic institutions must rest and to tax the home unnecessarily is to ol'og the evolution of the Commonwealth to its highest development. So let "" ha*? free hom?s not only in San j Franoiso->, bat everywhere and not tax themany for the benefit of ihe! few.?Wayne News. j WHTAMTOU SAD?

The Day Intended for Appropriate Commemoration of the Deed* of Heroes. Memorial day was founded that there might be a few hoars in each year set aside for the ap propriate commemoration of the deeds of men who had been kill ed while Berviug the country in the army or navy or who had died since having so served. For a number of years it was gener ally and suitably observed. Then in some places it ceased to be ob served at all. Jn many it was given up to bicycle and horse racing ana other sports and fes tivities. Diversions of this kind have been widely and properly pro tested against an desecrations of the day The protests seem to have had some eflect, for obser vance of the occasion promises to be appropriate. Graves will be decorated, and in many cifies, towns and rural neighborhoods there will be solemn processions to cemeteries, and sermons will be preached and addresses de livered recalling the brave deeds of the nation's heroes and the great principles for which they fought and for which many died. Holidays devoted to recreation and sport are a good thing, but I it does not necessarily follow that all holidays should be given up to them. Memorial day ought to be devotedlargely to recalling what past generations did. Contemplation of the coura geous and self-sacrificing patriot ism exhibited by past genera tions is to little purposes if it do not imbudc their successors with a purpose to emulate them. The men of to-day have confronting them questions almost as difficult as any which have yet been dealt with, and the best way the sons can show their appreciation of what the fathers accomplished i9 by resolving to go about their work as citizens with the same courage and in the same spirit as their fathers went about theirs.

It ia a prevalent belief in the minds of some people that the most ardent manifestation of love isoon fiaed to the young. That is a mis take. The most real, abiding faith in love for eaoh other we are con strained to believe, is that fonnd existing between the husband and the wife, the father and mother who have j-urneyed through a long period of years adown the rugged pathway of life. ''Young aod oon fiding" is not near as significant as 'old and confident' when applied to the matters of the heart and sen timent of love. There is muoh in the future for the young?there ie little left for tbe aged so valuable and so dear as their love for eaoh other. It iB a love that has been tried and tested and eaoh inoident of adversity has but added new flame and intensity. It is a pio ture fit for the gods to witness an aged father and. mother going, hand in band, down the shady lane that leads to everlasting life, in the eDjayment and seonrity of eBoh other's love.?Go trier Davis. Rural Delivery and Roads. The postoffioe department has adopted a polioy whioh means muoh in its relation to roads. The department will be guided by the onndition of county roads as to whether rural delivery servioe shall be extended or curtailed. If the roads in the seotions now enjoying tbe servioe are not kept np suffi ciently good the servioe will be out off. Tbe improvement of old roods or the building of new roads in other districts will be ooneider. ably in the ex'ension of the deli very system. The department's action is ex pected to arouse interest in the good roads question to a desirable point. Tbe boon of having their | mail delivered to them at their gates every day will not be oast aside by the farmers withont a struggle, and as the way for its preservation lies in the good roads movement they may be expected to meet the emergenoy. The promise held ont that rnral delivery will follow good roads jast as the constitution follows the flag should prove a incentive to rosd I improvements. Country road im j improvements do not mean simply that large sumfc of money shall Im voted for new work It might mean that in oertain oases bnt, on the whole, it means an intelligent nse of the money now regularly voted by county oourts for road work. It means the spending of the dollar available to the best praotical nse Much of tbe tronble with roads at present can be charg ed to indifferent attention by oiti zens as well as by oonnty officials ?Wheeling Inlelligenoer.

Nature's Way Is Best. A Disease Alto Known as Pulmonary Tuburculosis, Phthisis, Tnbnron lar Consumption and Consnmption of the Lungs. A Preventable and Curable Dis POB THE KEOKCK MEDICAL SOCIETY ] Consumption is the most wide spread of all the diseases common to man, It has been termed The Great White Plague. Other diseases haveoansed great* er panio, more dismay and more deaths in a shorter time, bat oon. sumption has been the most oon stant of all, the most deadly soourge of mankind. Consumption causes nearly five times as many deaths as typhoid fever and nearly six times as many deaths as was caused by any other oontageons or oommanioable die Think of if, out of every four deaths in the world one dies of oon bumption. There is no other known disease with snob rating. It is estimated that 1.000,000 lives are lost annually in Europe by this disease and 150.000 in the' U; 8. It is not oonfined to no one climate nor no olaes of people but is found in all olimates and among all olasses. While all other die eases h ?va yielded to the progress of scienoe and sanitation, oonsump tion has been steadily gaining ground. In the state of Illinois, where pure air is in abundanoe, there were 200 more lives lost dur ing the year 1905 than during the previous year. The increase in Illinois is no more than in all other states and she gave 7.500 pro. Stable lives during the past year to the greatest of all that stalks over oar beautiful oonntry and olaiins most of its viotimB from among the youths of our land. Is it not time that we were adopt ing rigid rnles to aid in the banish ment of this horrible plague? First, the people in general mast must make themselves acquainted witn the cause and the various modes by whioh consumption so readily plants itself in the system and begins a Inxurions growth. Consumption sever was heredi tary A ohild may inherit weak lunge, eto., whioh is inviting to oonsnmption, but they must first tale into tbeir system the germ whioh is of vegetable origin and rod shaped and is very small. By the aid of the miorosoope we are able to examine it. By repeated experimo.it it has been found that it grows beet when hid away from the son light and in ? dark, damp place. It also thrives better where there is lota of filth, and dnst. How many homes are kept jasf right for the breeding of suob germs?

He started baok on bis way home, how ever, with the firm oonviotion that be had forget something?what it was be oould not reoall, try how he would. As he neared home the oonviotion increased, and three , times be stopped his horse and went carefully through hiB pooketbook in a vain endeavor to disoover what be had forgotten, la due course be reaohed home, and was met by bis daughter, who looked at him in surprise and exolaimed: "Why, father where have you left moth er ??'?Ex. It will be remembered that Presi dent R josevelt eaid Judge Parker lied when he eaid that tbe corpora tions were spending large sums of money to aid bis eleotion It will also be remembered that he said H. M. Whitney, of Bocton, lied when he said that tbe President had agreed with him that there should be a substantial reduotion of tbe tariff on certain ertioles , whioh they bad discussed at tbe White House. Therefore it was not unexpected that the President should denounce Mr Chandler as a liar when be disclosed tbe plain, unvarnished di derations of the President concerning bis visits snd the viewaof certain Senators on tbe rate question It doesn't need mnob argument after the disclos ures qf tbe life insurance inve*tiga tions to show that Judge Parker knew what be was talking about. It will now probably be believed that Mr. Whitney was right. Mr. Chandler seems to have bnlge on tbe President in tbe oironmstanoes oonnecte 1 with the rate matter, and altogether it begins to look like that for tbe first time in history of tbe Country we have a President who can't remember what be said or any cf the faots in a given oase, and yet who is willing to denounce as a liar a man who does know what he is talking about. The popular idol has tumbled frcm the pedestal The general pnblio is forced to the oonolusion that all the veracity of tbe oountry is net concentrated at tbe White House. And it is a shame that they should have to form this opinion of their ohief exeontive in view of the faots that have been developed.?Fair mont Times.
