A pathetic story comes from Parkersburg.
A husband of but a few months,
a trusted bank clerk, who had worked
himself up from messenger hoy after
many years of faithful service, Carroll
Picket, aged thirty years, has left the
city with about $2,800 of the bank's
money and Ills young wife knows not
of his whereabouts. On last Saturday
cvenlpg he telephoned his wife that
he would not be home as he was going
011 an excursion to Cincinnati, but he
suid he would be back ready for work
Monday morning. In the meantime the
news spread abroad that he was a defaulter.
He has not been heard of
since. He left $1(10 on the mantel at
home for Ills wife hut as soon its she
heard of the shortage in his accounts
she knew it was not her money and
'turned It over to the bank. She says ,
I she fears he will take to drinking and
end a suicide. What caused his downfall?
One report says lie had been
I planning enterprises beyond the means
of a man with n moderate salary, one
[of which was the building for himself
of a motor boat. So here we have another
example of what happens to peo
pie who are unwilling to live lit accord
ance with their Income. The end
which must come sooner or later, is
sure to lie disastrous.
The Wheeling Intelligencer figures
It out this way:
The total real estate assessment In '
West Virginia In 1904 was $108,000,- t
000, which was taxed at 85 cents per t
hundred, and yielded a revenue to the
Stnte of $588,001).
The total real estate assessment In
West Virginia In 190G Is $475,000,000. t
which is taxed at S!4 cents per hun- >
tired and will yield $104,000.
Real estate has been relieved of ,
$1S4,000 taxes. t
The total nsspsment of railroads In
West Virginia in 1904 was $'40,000,000,
which was taxed at .'15 cents and ,
yielded $120,000. ,
The total assessment of railroads (
in West Virginia In 1900 was $170,000,000,
which is taxed at SV? cents
and will yield $159,000.
This is one of the samples of the
working of tax reform. The farmer,
the merchant and the small house ,
owner can easily see where and how j
he is benefited.

The Mannington Record lias a very clever
scheme of showing how tax re- t
form is working. Under the heading,
' Watch Your Tax Bills," which It has
distributed all over the front page of ]
Ihe paper, It gives examples of people
who have had marked decreases In
their tax bills. It is unique and effective.
The tax ticket story Is one f
if the dearest that ever was told.
The Wheeling News is responsible
tcr the following perl paragraphs:
"Tax-dodging mathematicians seem '
10 be of the Impression that the crea fi
lion of the earth was in the spring of h
1905." h
