NASHVILLE GLOBE, FRIDAY AUGUST 80, 1918.
ATTY. AND MRS. W. T. .FRANCIS
Clebrate the Twenty-fifth Anniver
sary ot Their Wedding.
A quarter of a century ago one ot
the most notable matrimonial alli
ances in St. Paul was that ol Mr. Wll
lyim T. Francis and Miss Nellie F.
Grishwold. It was quite an elaborate
affair in every way and the published
description ot it, and the list of pres
ents, filled several columns of THlfl
On Thursday evening, Aug 8, the
twenty-fifth anniversary of the wed
ding was celebrated by Atty. and Mrs.
Francis and a host ot their friends at
their handsome home 606 St. Anthony
avenue in a very unique manner that
approximated the original occasion.'
There have been numerous wedding
anniversaries in St .Paul but none was
quite so original and unique as that of
"Blllie and "Nellie."
The parlors were very elaborately
decorated with the national colors and
flags of the allies.
Across ene end of the parlor on a
ribbon the figures 1893-1918, twelve
inches long, in silver gilt with gold
dots were suspended. On the walls
there were groupings of pictures of
the bride and groom from 6 months of
age to date and photos of relatives,
old settlers and friends that made a
very attractive feature. The decorat
ing scheme was evolved from the fer
tile brain of Mr. Charles H. Miller.
When the hour for the festivities to
begin arrived Mr. Francis began to
sing "Mandy," and went from the par
lor to the stairway and his bride of
twenty-five years took up the strain
and slowly came down the stairs
where they locked arms and proceeded
to the end of the parlor where stood
Mr. C. H. Miller costomed expressly
for the occasion and he began an
original mock ceremony that put every
body in a hilarious state.
The bride and groom then sang and
reciaed severaL appropriate sonfs and
Mr. J. Q. Adams then appeared upon
the scene as master of ceremonies and
read the description of the wedding
of a quarter of a century before as
published in THE APPEAL.
- He then called upon several per
sons for remarks viz: W. R. Morris,
Rev. J. M. Henderson, J. H. Loomis,
Mrs. Q. w. James, Atty B. S. Smith,

Mrs. J. H. Dillingham and Miss
Hattle Hobbs were present as foster
mothers and Mr. J. B. Johnson gave

CO&T TO THE CONSUMER OF A
POUND LOAF OF BREAD.
(Explanation of Chart.)
Since 1913 farmers havo wn
ceiving for their w.heat a gradually
increasing proportion of the price
paid by the consumer for bread. The
amount received by the wheat grow
er for his contribution to the average
pound has increased from less than
1 cents per loaf in 1913 to' more
than 3y2 cents early this year. The
proportion to the whole price is shown
by the relative 1 length of the black
columns of the chart.
The middle portion of each column
shows what the miller received for
his millln costs and profits. This
has been a somewhat variable factor,
but is now at the minimum (6 per
cent this 6 per cent however, is in
cluded the cost of the containers
(bags, sacks etc,) shown as dotted
area, which has Increased very nearly

in proportion to the price of bread
itself. Bags now cost about 50 per
cent more than in 1913 and 1914.
The shaded portion of the column
represents the expense of distributing
the flour, making it into hrpad nnrt
getting the loaf to the consumer.
ine chart shows that the farmer
is now receiving a much larger share
of the final price for his product than
in the past, and that a considerable
amount of "spread" has been taken
out of other expenses.

WHAT YOUR SUBSCRIPTION
When you subscribe to a Liberty
Loan you subscribe to the sentiment
that the world must be made safe for
democracy and subscribe to the" fnud
that is to make the world safe for
You subscribe to the belief that In
nocent women and children on un
armed ships shall not be sent to the
bottom of the sea; that women and
children and old -men shall not be
ravished and tortured and murdered
under the plea of military necessity;
that nurses shall not be shot for deeds
of mercy nor hospital shlpB be sunk
without warning or hospitals and un
fortified cities be bombed or cannon
aded with long-range guns.
You subscribe to the doctrine that
small nations have the Bame right as
great and powerful ones; that might

not force upon the world the dominion
of her military masters.
You subscribe, when you subscribe
to, a Liberty Loan, to the belief that
America entered this war for a Just
and noble cause; that our soldiers in
France and our sailors on the sea are
fighting for right and Justice.
And you subscribe to the American
sentiment that they must and shall be
powerful, efficient and victorious.
BAD NEWS FOR BERLIN.
The war news from thn eaaiom
' front these days is bad news for the
uermaa people. Quotations from
German newspapers portray the gloom
that overhangs the people in the
large cities. That the people in the
small towns and country are equally
depressed is not to he doubted
The Liberty Loan bond buyers of the
preceuing loans have their share in
the success of the entent. allies Thav
turnished the sinews of war not only
to ngnt tne u-boats and to build ships,
not only to raise, equip and send our
soldiers over, not only to supply them
and our allies with food and munitions
but more than $6,000,000,000 of their
money has been loaned to mir niHea on
that they may prosecute the war with
vigor ana strength.
We here at home have an oppor
tunity to send the Germans.some more
bad news. The Germans have great
respect for money; they know its vital
value in waging war. They know, too,
that the support the American people
give a Government loan measures
largely the support they give their
Government, the moral as well as the
financial support they give their
armies in the field.
. A tremendous subscription to trie
Fourth Liberty Loan wil be as dis
tressing to the German people as a
defeat for them on the battle field, and
It will mean as much. It spells their
defeat; it breaks their morals; it
means, power to their enemies. A sub
scription to the loan is a contribution
to German defeat and American vic
tory. . '
SOME OF THE BITS YOUR LIBER
TY BOND WIL LDO.
If you buy a $100 bond of the Fourth
Liberty Loan you are lending the
United States Government enough
money to feed a soldier in France a
little more than seven months. Or
you have furnished enough money to
give him a complete outfit of winter
and summer clothing, including shoes
and stockings, and slicker and over
coat and blankets, with enough left
over to arm him with a good revolver.
You have done that much to beat back
It takes $35 more to arm him with
a rifle with a bayonet on it, and if
you buy a second 100 bond you furnish'
him this rifle and 1,000 cartridges for
it; an dthere will still be enough of
your money left to purchase a good
sized bomb to throw in a dugout, or
demolish a machine gun together with
the Huns operating it.
CURTAILMENT OF LOANS BY
Credit extended by banks to their
customers for nonessential purposes
hurts In several ways. First, it in
volves the use of money that might be
better invested in Government securi
ties, thereby helping to win the war,
and shorten the war with the conse
quent saving of American lives. Sec
ond, it involves the use of labor, ma
terial, and transportation, which ought
to be left free to tneet, to the fulest,
the needs of the Government. Third,
it Involves unnecessary' competition
with the Government, both delaying
Government operations and making
them more expensive. .
Every resource of the United States
and Its people should be devoted to the
winning ot this war. We should hit
th eilun with all our aUvuCu. To
win the war w ehave got to keep our
soldiers in a high state of efficiency
and keep our people at home, and our
farms and mines and factories in a
high state ot efficiency. We are not
keeping ourselves In ths highest tat
of efficiency when we are using money j
ana goods and labor and transporta
tion for nonessential things, for lux
uries, and extravagances.
It Bhould not be left entirely to the
banks to carry out this policy. The
people should co-operate with them,
and curtail their expenses, their ex
penditures, and their borrowings.
CONSERVATION OF CREDIT.
Not only should the goods and labor
of th eNatlon be conserved for the
prosecution of the war; the credit of
the Nation must be conserved for the
This is being impressed upon the
banks, and it should be Impressed upon
the people, too the borrowers from
All of the banks of the country are
being urged by the Federal Reserve
Board to curtail their loans. They are
urged to loan money only where the
borrower is going to use it in some
way that will aid in or contribute to
winning the war.
This policy is not aimed at hamper
ing legitimate business. It alms to
help win the war, which 1 sthe best
thing possible for business. It simply
means that money wanted for nones
sential purposes should be refused.
Let the nonessentials wait until the
9 rar is finished. The Government
needs the money to carry on the war.
The farmer, the men and the indus
tries engaged in war work or engaged
in producing things needed for the
efficiency both of our soldiers and of
our home people, need the credit to
carry on their enterprises.
Merchants should not borrow money
to stock up on luxuries or things that
the people should not buy at this time.
No one should borrow money now to
spend needlessly or evtravagantly.
Unnecassary building, unneeded arti
cles, unessential enterprises should ill
await the ending of the war.
Th Federal Reserve Board points
out that In the interest of successful
Government financing it would be
much better for the banks to hold
credit within reasonable bounds by in
telligent co-operation rather than to
discourage borrowing by charging high
interest rates. The people should co
operate with the Government and the
banks in the policy of conserving
credit and curtailing borrowing ex
cept where the money, directly or in
directly helps win the war, helps our
soldiers who are risking their lives
for our country.
WAR PROFITS TAX AND EXCESS
PROFITS TAX THE DIFFER
ENCE. "By a war-profits tax we mean a
tax upon profits in excess of those re
alized before the war.
"By an excess-profits tax we mean
a tax upon profits in excess of a given
return upon capital.
"The theory of a war-profits tax is
to tax profits, due to the war.
"The theory of an excess-profits tax
is to tax profits over and above a given
return on capital. The excess profits
tax falls less heavily on big business
than on smal business, because big
business is., generally overcapitalized
and small businesses are often under
capitalized. "The war-profits tax would tax all
war profits at one high rate; the
excess-profits tax does and for safety
must tax all excess profits at lower
and graduated rates."
The above extrast from Secretary
of the Treasury McAdoo's testimony
before the House Ways and Means
Committee gives his differentiation
between war-nrofits and excess-Droflts
taxes and explains his position in urg-l
ing upon Congress on excess-profits'

To the average citizen Secretary,
McAdoo's position seems well taken.
Most small and local corporations are
capitalized at an actual valuation.
Many of the very large corporations
are greatly overcapitalized; the stock
of some of them has been repeatedly
watered. With only an excess-profits
tax a corporation earning 10 per cent
on grossly watered capital, wil pay
the same tax as another corporation
not overcapitalized earning 10 per
cent on the real, aotual valuation of
the money and property Invested In
Its business. The profits of the first
corporation might be 30 per cent on
its actual valuation, and It Is to cover
such cases that a war-profits tax is
As many of these large corporations
are engaged in Government work and
drawing huge sums from the United
States, it seems particularly Just that
they should pay taxes on the same
actual basis as corporations not over
capitalized. A tax that taxes equally
