Cost of living.
One of the big bills the city has
to cope with each month is it's light-
ing bill. Each one of the little white
lights on the street corners cost the
city monthly $1.25. No doubt these
lights have burned one dollar and
twenty-five cents worth of current,
but have they g'ven forth that much
light? The incandescent lamp costs
nearly as much as the tungsten at
the new price, gives a stingy, poor
excuse of a light and uses far more
electricity. The city should have
these replaced with the bright shin-
ing tungsten, which uses less cur-
rent, consequently will cost the city
less money for current used. When
these lights are changed it might
be a good thing to lower them sev-
eral feet so that the citizens will
receive the full benefit of it's glare.
This suggestion is just one of the
many little things that will tend to
reduce the cost of living in Bemidji.
Change Tariff Gardually
(Suggested by G. H. Townsend)
The result of the national elec-
tion means a downward revision of
tLe Payne-Aldrich Tariff and the
people are greatly interested in
knowing when the change will be
made and how radical it will be. In
the past prospective reductions in
the tariff depressed business and the
reason is evident. If the import
price of a certain article is one dol-
lar and the duty fifty cents the total
cost of one dollar and a half would
be the net cost and if the tariff was
reduced twentyflve cents the net cost
would be one dollar and a quarter
and this reduction in cost would
ordinarily affect the manufacturer,
the jobber and the retailer and as
each would be afraid of having goods
on hand when the decline in price
came, each would hesitate to buy
goods and the inevitable effect is
A rational system would be to
make tariff reductions at a rate of
say one per cent a month or a small
reduction every three months. In
this way the decline would be so in-
significan at any one tieme that it
could not affect business at all. It is
not the actual change in tariff sched-
ules but the danger of loss on stocks
from a falling market that the busi-
ness world fears.
This is an age in which the peo-
ple are demanding that the govern-
ment be conducted as they wish and
this is an opportune time for the
people to say what they want. The
president-elect would be responsive
to a general demand for an extra
session of congress or to a general
request that no extra session be call-
ed. If the people demand gradual
changes the president-elect and con-
gress will respond and the business
depression that smoe fear will not
be evident. The newspapers could
be of great service by asking their
readers to vote on the following
Shall there by an extra session of

Constipation and Catarrh
Moving Picture Plays!
lieve me? Well, whether you would
lieve me or not it is the truth.
For many years I have been wrest
ling with the problem of furnishing
the public an internal catarrh remedy.
Peruna has been the remedy that I
have devised and it has certainly re
lieved many thousand people, yes hun
dreds of thousands of people, of chronic
Constipation was my chief difficulty
in treating these cases. I often felt
that it would be better if a laxative
element were added to Peruna. I feared
to do so, however, first because of
the number of catarrhal patients who
needed no laxative, and second I was
afraid of making such a radical change
in a remedy that was already doing
so well. Thus it was that I continued
to prescribe with the Peruna a bottle
of Manalin to those who needed a lax
ative. At last, under circumstances
explained in my booklet, I was con
strained to add the laxative element to
Peruna. This constitutes what is now
known as the revised Peruna.
Now those who take Peruna will,
first, find themselves promptly relieved
of their constipation. Second, the
catarrh will gradually disappear. And
once the catarrh is cured the consti
pation leaves permanently. Then it
you follow the advice given in my
book, you will never have to take pills
any more. Cathartics and laxatives
you can ignore. You will be perma
nently relieved of both your catarrh
and the constipation. PERUNA IS
