Feed The
Have you been feeding the birds during the last two weeks ?
It would be a small matter to put out some crumbs, scraps or grain
each day when the weather is bad, and it is especially needed when
the ground is covered with snow. The birds need it, because even
with your help possibly many will dip and if you can save some they
will pay you a thousand fold. Do not allow the birds to perish from
the cold and starvation by your neglect. Even if they did not by
destroying insects and pests do us any material good, the pleasure
and joy they bring into our lives by their sweet songs and the
added beauty they give to our surroundings would be sufficient
reason for feeding them. Put out some scraps or grain for them
today. They will find it.
Social Inequalities.
The most important problem of the present day is to so mold
our form of government that every man and woman who is'willing
and able to work should have work and receive for that work suffi
cient pay that he or she can live comfortably. Neither should it be
possible for any man to amass such great quantities of money that
it can be of no possible use to him. When we write this we know
that we will be called a socialist, a fool and a fanatic ; that it will
be said we are advocating a doctrine that is absurd" and ridiculous ;
that it is the established order of things that a few shall have much
more they can use while many shall live in hunger, want and squalor.
But if this is the established order, the established order is wrong
and should be changed.
If a man who owns and manages a business becomes immensely
wealthy and his employes have barely enough to live on, do you
think the earnings of the business are being equitably divided
among those who produce the wealth ? Surely not. The one is
being paid much more than' he earns and the many are not receiving
as much as they earn. You may reply, "but everyone must look
out for himself. " If so you are not a Christian. You believe that
because a man is strong he should prey upon the weak ; that be
cause he has the power he should take from others what rightfully
belongs to them.
To us it is a crime for a man to be allowed to amass a fortune
so large that no matter how lavishly he may spend it he can not
even spend the income ; that this fortune can be divided among his
heirs and no matter how empty headed, silly and useless they may
be they can live in luxury all their lives without working.
In a nation where such conditions exist it is not to say that "all
men are created equal with certain inalienable rights, such as, life,
liberty and the pursuit of happiness." One is born and reared in
the lap of luxury. He never does a days work, he never produces
anything, still he is educated, travels, has a beautiful home, all of
the comforts and luxuries, lives in ease and idleness without finan
cial cares. Another is born poverty and squalor, is raised in igno
rance, works hard, does just the best he can but never rises above
his environment and so often goes hungry and in rags.
You admit all this is true but say that it has always been true,
but having always been true does not make it right nor is it any
reason why it should not be changed.
On Taxing Pure Bred Animals.
In another column will be found an article by Dr. H. M. Brown
on the raising and breeding of the best types of live stock. As
usual Dr. Brown presents forcefully and ably his opinions and views
and while we are glad to present such an excellent article by such
a high authority we do not agree with him in one particular. We
believe that pure bred, registered
taxation purposes at their true value and by true value, we mean
what the owner could expect to secure for them in a fair market,
less a reasonable profit for handling them. We do not think that
svock for breeding purposes of great value should be appraised at
the price for steers for meat or of
The law as we understand it now requires that all personal
property be listed for taxation at its true value in money. Until a
change is made in the law the owners of valuable live stock should
be required to list it at what it is worth. If a man owns a stallion,
a bull, a mare or a cow which people are anxious to buy from him
for $1000. he should pay taxes on approximately that amount and
not on $200 or $300. If a man invests thousands of dollars in live
stock it is because he believes that it will pay him and until the
law gives him special privileges, he should pay on the reasonable
value of his stock the same as any other merchant.
Simply because an animal has a pedigee, is registered, is no
reason why it should be given a higher valuation than one that has
not a pedigee, if it is not worth more money. All animals should be
valued according to the provisions of the law at their "true value
in money" and to find this value consideration should bs paid to
the purpose for which the animal is adapted.
It may be that- the public weal demands that special induce
ments shall be offered people to get them to raise only the best
kind of live stock ; that a man can not afford to engage in the busi
ness and pay taxes on what the animals are really worth ; that the
policy of Belgium and France in exempting such stock from taxa
tion should be adopted in this country, but until thjs is done the
law as it stands should be enforced. .
If it is a great deal better for
cattle, sheep and hogs of certain kinds, than scrubs, we can seeno
reason why he should not pay taxes on the true value of his better
