of this Parish have done very wc'l j (']

spraying.,
Use two pounds Carooa Dry, two,

apply this solution to the potato j ^
plants with a good spray pump. ! ß
Use an angle nozz«; so that y iJU I ;

HIS INCOME TAX

By ROBERT McBLAlR.
Mr. Simpkins gazed at the portrait
on the wall tlli bis eyes tilled with
t*ars. It was a portrait <>t his father,
t 'oloiiel Simpkins, who had four times
been promoted for valor during the
Civil War und had died bravely on the
field of action. Mr. Simpkins' throat
itched now for two reasons: First, he
reverenced and adored the memory of
his luiher ; secondly, his nge and ins
eyes and his game leg wouldn't let him
go to war himself. And as he observed
the martial bearing and uncompromis
ing gaze of Colonel Simpkins he saw.

were at the teasing ages of sixteen
and seventeen) were where they could
see him then he straightened and

' As Mr. Simpkins' income was $15.000
he had to figure out the amounts pay

classes of Incomes In order to arrive ,
at the total due from himself. He ;
passed over the first class who must
pay taxes that Is, single men making i

ried men then showed up as follows: ;
First. they pay '2 per cent (under '
the 1916 law) on all Income over
$4 000, deducting $200 for each of their j
children under eighteen rears. In Mr. I
Simpkins' case this was $212, which he
put down in the "pavable" column. !
He saw next that, under the 1917 1
law, married men pay an additional 2
rer cent, on all over $2.000—with the 1
same allowance for children. This j
added $252 to his "payable" column.
He then observed that for every ;

"Whew !" exclaimed Mr Simpkins j

"that mokes a difference.'' !
He thought next of Judge Wlllough

"Ho only pays $20," commented Mr. .
Simpkins, not quite so angrf.y this
time and then a thought struck him j
and he sat up rigidly tn his chair. 1
Judge Willoughby s son had been !
drowned on the Tuscanln when It was i
submarined with the loss of two hun- !

"Judge Willoughh gave his son to i
America " muttered Mr Simpkins. !
He leaned forward suddenly and put
fils fnce in his hands. ,
Fo; a long time Mr. Simpkins sat |

no sound In the library except the |
tlcklng of the tail clock and an occa
sional trill of laughter from the chil
dren skylarking upstairs The square \
ot lighi on the rarpet gradually with- I
drew Itself through the window, and
first twilight and than darkness settled
in about the quiet, white halre«!, some- j
times Irascible old man. '
Mr. Simpkins was thinking thlnirs
which he would nev'r afterward speak
of he whs thinking things that were
too sacred ever to he put into words,
But some Inkling of his thoughts may
t,e found in his rejoinder to Mrs.
Stmpklns when that placid lady came
in and turned or the lights, and asked j
him whether he was ready for dinner,
"Judge Willoughby's only son was
worth as much ab fonrte«;n hundred
and thirty-four dollars, wasn't he?"
Mr. Simpkins demanded of her.
As his wife, who was not unused to
his superficial irritations, watched hit,,
in mild astonishment. Mr Simpkins
limited oat to the bal ami look tils
