War Revenue Tax of $105,003,000
Levied-Beer Bears Brunt of
Congress has levied a war tax of
$105,000,000 to offset a similar amount
'of loss on Import revenue due to the
?European disturbances and of this
?amount beer is the heaviest
?contributor, having been assessed ap
proximately $50,000,000; a stamp tax on
.negotiable instruments, it is estimated,
?will yield $31,000,000; a tax on the
.capital stock of banks of $4,300,000
and a tax on tobacco, perfumes, thea
'ter tickets, etc., makes the remainder.
Congress has decreed that the
[brewer, the banker and the investor
must shoulder the musket and march
to the front; that milady who would
add to her beauty must first tip Uncle
fSam, and a dollar that seeks pleasure

?various ramifications almost every line
of business.

at the Right
Hand of God
AmUDt to Dean
Moody Bibil lotti tute. Chicago
TEXT-"He was received up Into heav
en, and sat on the right hand of God."
Mark 16:18.
These words
give us a vision
of our enthroned
Our Lord Jesus
Christ will have
forever a human
body and soul and
when we see him
in glory it will be
"this same Jesus"
who was received
up from earth to
heaven. His en
thronement sug
gests the glorifi
cation possible
for humanity. Our
bodies are now In humiliation and
grow weary and ill; but they shall be
made like unto the body of his glory
-wondrous thought?
The vision assures us of Christ's
sympathy. He is touc'oed with a feel
ing of our infirmities, having been in
all points tempted as we are, apart
from sin.
Though now ascended up on high
He bends on earth a brother's eye;
Partaker of the human name
He knows the frailty of our frame.
Our entrance to heaven is secured.
Joseph s rude brothers were out of
place In the palace of Pharaoh, but
because Joseph was on the throne
they were soon Bet at ease. Christ is
not ashamed to call us brethren and
we shall be "at home" with the Lord.
Our Resting Savior.
Christ "sat" on the right hand of
God, for the work of atonement was
done. Other men die feeling their
work is incomplete, but he could cry
"It is finished." Mr. J. Hudson ?Tay
lor, when a boy, picked up a tract in
which he noted the words, "the fin
ished work of Christ." He saw that
he had nothing to do but accept the
gift of salvation and praise God; and
In a moment he was saved. Will you
not do likewise?
Bishop Moule and a party of friends
stood one night in the Coliseum and
thought of the countless martyrs who
there had died for Christ. By the
light of the moon he read the closing
jBgrds ofJRomans.8j "Who Is he that
condemneth? It is Christ that died,
yea rather, that is risen again, who
is even at the right hand of God, who
also maketh intercession for us. Who
shall separate us from the love of
Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress,
or persecution, or famine, or naked
ness, or peril, or sword? . . . Nay, in
all these things we are more than
conquerors through him that loved us.
For I am persuaded, that neither
death, nor life, nor angels, nor princi
palities, nor powers, nor things
present, nor things to come, nor
height, nor depth, nor any other crea
ture, shall be able to separate us from
the love of God, which Is In Christ
Jesus our Lord."
Our Mighty Helper.
The verse following the text reads,
"And they went forth, and preached
everywhere, the Lord working with
them, and confirming the word with
signs following." Christ does not sit
idly on his throne; but, as Stephen
saw him "standing" on the right hand
of God, hs rises to help his people.
The Gospels tell us what Jesus "began
to do and teach," and he is still doing
and teaching. If tempted to doubt
whether the Lord is among us, let us
recall how he shook Christendom by
a miner's son, Martin Luther; and
launched the modern missionary
movement through a shoemaker, Wil
liam Carey.
"But this man, after he had offered
one sacrifice for sins forever, sat
down on the right hand of God; from
henceforth expecting till his enemies
he made his footstool" (Hebrews
10:12, 13). He shall come to reign at
last. In that day, the church will
share his glories as his own bride.
Israel will be restored and he a chan
nel of blessing to all nations. Wars
and oppression will cease "and the
streets, of the city shall be full of
hoy? and girls playing in the streets
thereof." "The wolf also shall dwell
with ihe lamb, and the leopard shall
He down with the kid; and the calf
and (:;e young lion and the failing to
gether: and a little child shall lead
them. And the cow and the bear
shall fred; their young ones shall lie
down together; and the lion shall eat
straw like the ox. And the sucking
child shall p?ay on the bole of the asp,
and the weaned child shall put his
hand o:? the cockatrice' den. They
shall not hurt nor destroy in all my
holy mon:.tain: for the earth shall bo
full of tho knowledge of the Lord, as
the waters cover the seas" (Isaiah
11:6-9). A blind girl said she loved
the Book of Revelation the best, and
especially the last three chanters,
since the twentieth shows Satan
bound, the twenty-first shows the
Lamb married and the twenty-second
shows Christ reigning.
And hear V-A3 wondrous word: "To
him that ovc.rcometh will I grant to
sit with me lu my throne, even a* I
al3o overcome, and am set down with
my father In his throne" (Rev. 8:21),

No Team Should Be Required to Pull
to, Its Maximum Capacity-In
teresting Comparisons.
(By "W. C. PALMER.)
Tha average cost of hauling a ton
one mile on the ordinary country
roads, is 25 cents, while the average
price of hauling one ton one mile on
the railroads is % cent. In other
words, the cost of hauling is 33 times
as much with team and wagon as with
steam. This has been accomplished
by a number of factors. Some of
these can be and must be considered
in making good roads, that is, to hare
a good hard roadbed and to eliminate
grades. The railroads flo not, as a
rule, have a grade of more than three
per cent, while some of them have
adopted two per cent as the maximum
grade. Two per cent would mean a
rise of two feet in a hundred feet.
This would not be considered much of
a grade on the ordinary road, but this
is the way it works out
A team can exert a pull on a short
distance of one-half its weight, but
for ordinary work the load lt can pull
should Dot be over one-tenth the
weight of the team, for instance a
team weighing 3,000 pounds can exert
a pull of 300 pounds when it is to con
tinue the work for, say, ten hours.
For a small stretch it would be able
to exert a pull of 1,500 pounds. This,
.however, is putting forth all the ener
gy of which the horses are capable.
It has also been found that the pull
required to take a ton load over ordi
nary roads is 160 pounds. Supposing,
then, that the load is one ton and the
wagon weighs 1,300 pounds, this would
make a total of 3,300 pounds. At the
rate of 160 pounds a ton the total pull
; would be 264 pounds, or a little less
than the team ls capable ot hauling.
In fact, it could very nicely handle
500 pounds more, which would bring
the pull up to 300 pounds, and make
the load 2,500 pounds. This, however,
is for the level. As a grade ls ap
proached this, of course, will be in
creased. A five per cent grade would
increase the draft of the wagon and
load of 3,300 pounds by 315 pounds,
bringing it up to 579 pounds, which is
almost twice what the team can han
dle as a regular thing. If the grade
ls increased to 20 per cent, or 20 feet
in 100 feet, the draft on this same
load would come to a little over 1,500
pounds, or the maximum that this
team could pull when exerting its ut
most power. Any grade beyond this
would mean that the load would have
to be reduced, and in fact no team
should be required to have to pull tc
its maximum capacity. From this lt
ls evident that increasing the grade
Increases the draft very fast and
hence grades should be eliminated ae
far as it is possible.
On a macadam road a team can pull
three times as much on the level SE
on the good earth road, but the in
crease in draft for grade remains the
same as on the earth road, so that a
grade would be more objectionable on
a macadam road than on a poor road
On the level a 3,000-pound team could
easily handle four tons, while the
maximum grade that it could pull up
with such a load would be a ten pei
cent grade and even that is more than
should be expected from the team.
Sprinkling While Under Construction
Should Be Practically Continuous
on Hot Days.
Sprinkling the wearing surface o?
concrete roads during the construc
tion period must be practically con
tinuous on hot days unless there is
some moisture retaining medium pres
ent. Recent observations, according
to Engineering Record, of a number
of pieces of road construction, on
which contractors new to the work
were engaged, indicate that the in
spector is having his hands full in get
ting the "wetting-down" specifications
properly adhered to. Where earth is
available a generous layer thrown on
makes an excellent cover and holds
water well. Some careful road build
ers in the West recognizing the value
of curing concrete under water, have
made earth dams along the edges of
concrete reads and divided the road
longitudinally into a series of pools.
Aid to Country Life.
"Good roads," says A. P. Sandles
of Ohio, "will help country churches,
country schools and country life.
