. ; tng Story.
If the reader of thli article imokei
a pipe, be hai probably noticed, be
fore this time, that the packages of
tobacco are becoming smaller.
A abort time ago, the United
States government, wanting more
money, decided not to make the
"common peepul" pay but to -take
It out ot the profits of luch ugly
trust! ai the tobacco trust for In
stance. Coniequently It notified the to-
baocc trust that It would have to
pay an additional revenue on to
bacco and thus pay to the govern
ment some ot the money it had
wrongfully taken from the "com
mon peepul" by outrageous trust
And did thli Injure the tobacco
trust and doea it itand the brunt ot
No, dear children, It doet not. The
common peepul" were elapped on
the other cheek and are paying thli
revenue to the government.
Now, do they do it?
Well, tbe tobacco trust made Its
packages eo much smaller that the
cost of tbe revenue li taken out Of
the package that Is, the consum
er get sufficiently lest tobacco for
their money to enable the tobacco
trust to make up the additional coat
of the revenue without paying it
from their own profits. Thus by
getting less tobacco for ten ?ents
now than they did before, the "com
mon peepul" and not the tobacco
trust li paying the government the
additional tax.
"And that It not all," tald an
Abilene merchant today. ''After cut
ting the weight of their packages, to
pay the additional revenue, they
haven-advanced the wholesale price,
so that tbe trust la now making more
profit on tobacco than It did before
tbe government tacked on the addi
tional revenue. That It how the trust
waa hurt. For Instance thla package
of tobacco contains two and tw
third! ounce! ot tobacco but It costs
mt more wholesale than it' did be
fore the revenue went on and wlien
the package held three and one-fourth
ounces Of tobacco. -
"Tobacco it sold to us by the dozen
cant, not weight. Tbe pure looa
law. hit! ut little fellows though and
tells us to sell potatoes, apples, etc.,
by weight But then a prominent
lawyer told me the other day that
laws were made to be obeyed by the
little folks."

High School Team There ' Cancels
Game With Abilene. .-
. Junction City, April I The lo
cal high school boys had scheduled
two games of bast' ball with the
Abilene high school team, but when
it came to signing the contract, the
latter would not play unless they
be permitted to use two players who
had played league ball in Eastern
Kansas last summer. Hence tbe
athletic relations, between the two
school! have been severed at far as
this base ball season Is concerned
la Junction City scared or hat It

aiViool at Jundtlon would . better
fresben Its memory to the fact tbat
league ball playera won their only
game from Abilene two years ago.
The names of the Eastern Kansas
league teams have been gone over
and no name there thows that any
Abilene high school baseball player
ever played In tbat league.

Women of This Age Do Not Dress
Warmly Enough.
Doctors have recently testified,
with rather an unusual degree of un
animity, that women in these days
do not dress warmly enough; that
neurasthenia It often the result of
wearing ciotmng oi insumcieui

but Ityle that causes the difficultly.
Women can not Imitate the sylph-
llke maiden of the fashion plate and
wear heavy underwear and thick
dresses. Fashion with beautiful dis

The result la too often pneumonia or
an exhaustion of vitality and nerve

like good common sense. Women

Topeka, April 1. Dr. B. J. Crom-

health, has received 'a letter from
Dr. Samuel 0. Dixon,' secretary of
the Pennsylvania board of health,
In which Dr. Dixon aaya that he
believes that ; the micro-organism
which causes infantile paralysis has
been discovered. '- Dr. Crumblne li
now in the east and be will visit the
Pennalyvanla health laboratories to
tee about -the discovery. Infantile
paralysis hat been 'prevalent in Kan
sat two summers, coming on about
the middle of July and continuing
until cold weather. There have been
more than two hundred cases in the
itate and tome forty deaths from
this disease, and a discovery of the
cause of the-disease It important to
tht medical profession at least. The
state hat been working for montht
In the university laboratories trying
to find the germ that transmitted
the disease and trying to learn what
could be used to prevent it and to
cure It
It hit letter to Dr. Crumblne des
cribing tbe new organlslmt Dr. Dixon
tayt that he took the blood from Both
human being and from monkeys
which had the disease. When the
blood smeart on tht glass were stain
ed with a dilute solution of carbol
fuchiln and the micro-organ lama were
readily seen under high power micro
scopes at purple lines, curved at an
angle of sixty to seventy degree and
at timet the curved end appeared
bulbous. Some of the organisms ap
peared to have a very finely grained
protoplasm. ,
