What la It Kxtent and What Arrangements are Made for Its Allowunco, (low It ICfTttcta an Kxtonslvo Trade and Is lleiiellctal to the ruhlle. The Washington correspondent of the Cincinnati Times-Star writes as follows: The change of the tobacco tax on the 1st of May, and the preparations for rebate on un broken packages, Is occupying a great deal of attention, not alone from the head of the Revenue Bureau here, but from persons all over the country. For how many manufac turers and dealers do you suppose Ihcc are in this article in the country? Four hundred thousand! Nearly a half million; or nearly one to every 100 persons. The chanee in the laws makes it necessary to send new stamps lor every one 01 tnese ueaiers, and In many cases to other classes of internal revenue tax pavers, so that the other day K tons of stamps were shipped by the Revenue depart ment lor tne use 01 tnese people. You see every cross road stoic in the countiy keeps louaccu, anu, 01 course, must pay us license tax for that purpose. Everybody in the cities has observed the frequency with which he en- coumers cigar s'.oies and saloons. Well, eveiy one of these has to have its new license stamps and so It is pretty easy to see where the 40,000 stamps go to. The act of Congress which reduced Uie ta provided that dealers who have on had unbroken packages ol to bacco on May 1st on which the full tax of 16 cents per pound has been paid may obtain a rebate 01 tne amouut paid in excess ol the tax under the law taking effect on that date. Hence there will be an unwonted activity in the tobacco shop on that day. "What do you suppose this rebate will amount too," 1 asked 01 an ollicial ol the Inter nal Revenue. Bureau yesterday. "I don't know," he answered "its pretty nam iu csumaic. ti win run up into tne mil lions, of course." There will be an immense number of claims for rebate, will there not?" "Yes. I do not think, however, that half tne ueaiers win put in any claim. You see the rebate is only allowed in sums of $10 and upward, and only on unbroken packages. Well most of the small dealers keep on hand only about what they need to have ready to sell from at once. The requirement that the claim for rebate be not less than $10 will shut out n great many, for the rebate to amount lo 4I0 must been 125 pounds ol tobicco in un broken packages, or 20 boxes ol cigars. "vvnen will this rebate be paid!" "That we cannot say. Congress directed its payment, but did not provide the funds with which to pay it, hence we cannot do; so until the next Congress meets and does the work that the last one failed to per- "And meantime?" "Meantime we will go on receiving, examin ing and passing upon the claims, nnd when tnn lunds come on we will be all ready to send out the checks.' SI'IItlTUAI.ISM In Antediluvian Time's In the Dark and Middle Ages The world has exercised more conscien tlousness in matters of religious faith that it is being credited with. There is no proof, and in the absence of such we should not accept everything as matter of fact that either single individual or an assembly of persons got up any mythological tradition for the pur pose to defraud their fellow-men or their de scendants. As science advances and explains any wonderful phenomenon and draws them from the realm of ignorance into that of en lightenment and knowledge, so follows skep ticism and doubt side by side with it, whil the faith of the past appears more and more as ridiculous or as a pretty fable only fit for poetical illuminations and is only treated as such, then comes the time when imagination is relieved from the bonds of responsibility, and as such is full of self-exaggerated esteem and treats matter that was till then a revered tradition as a fine but childish fable. How ever, the myths that we inherited in the day of youthful ignorance may have and represent a grain of truth in the general conglomeration of matters and things and should not b despised. Man began in his intel lectual childhood to observe certain phenomena and their effects, and would express surprise at the cause and effects re suiting therefrom, he saw that everv dead oh ject had two fleet companions, a shadow and a reiiccnon, tne former dark and unseeming, the latter bright and full of apparent life: hi did n"t recognize the pptical causes of these phenomena and in nervous fear and ignor ance gave each of them an individuality. He called the first a Shadow and the latter -joul or Psyche. Experience taught that both were unitea wun eacn other, yet dependent from tl, i., 1 ! .irrr- . T-i-.:... , ..... uuuj, um utauu uuicicill iciauvc posi tions to the same. A man died and hii shadow was not seen any more, but in nightly visions the well known fotm of the departed j form of the dark, unseemlng shadow of 1 departed, but that of the living, chang Psyche as it is reflected In clear water appciucu irue a me 10 tne ureamer, not in th changeable : as 11 is reuecteu in clear water or 1 mirror. The soul of the deoarted conversed with the dreamer notwithstanding that the oreamer Knew wnile dreaming that the abode of lip's soul was dead. The conclusion fnl. low.d with irreslsUble force that the lifeless body and the living dreamer was ol a more ethereal najure than the body that lived in spite of the dead matter. Thus originated the belicr In spirits which is as old as belief itself, and older than positive religious belief. Everything has pre-existed, the spiritualists need not be proud over a new discovery, they generally stand on the lowest grade of scepti cism, they have shaken off everything except the future life ol the soul. Thev can not pet familiar with the fact that the soul is onlv an attribute of the living mailer, and with its dis solution uisoives also. As long as a mineral is subject to the process of chrystalization it lives and goes the way like any living being from birth to death, for the day-fly It takes but a few hours, with minerals sometimes less time. As soon as it gains its chrvstal form it is dead: with its consumatlnn rlnf life. Spiritualism had Its rjositive form In th dark ages of ihe past. There were spirits as angels, demons, dwarfs, gnomes, fairies, titans, witches, sorceresses, nymphs, fales and geniusses. The reality of a belief in spirits like it existed at the dawn of history, and even before with the Turanic races, the precursors 01 tne numan races on earth, was that the whole universe was inhabited by un told millions of spirits, evety man, woman or child was possessed by two of these spirits, that the sun, moon, stars, mountains, rivers, the clouds, winds, rain, heat and cold, had their spirits or demons, and some of these naa many 01 mem. 1 hus it happened that the nations of the classical middle ages, and even in the latter davs. believed that hen they had their n-n nnm Ihey could take In the whole world, earlh.air, ihe heavens, seas and gulfs were inhabited by myriads of spirits, each of whom had his office and occupation and influenced one or another in some separate manner in their transactions. Beyond these there were independent spirits that were not appointed to any special purpose, as, for instance, the angels, it Is difficult to esiaupsn me time when the good angels sep arated themselves from the demons who again without any perceptible notice, separated into the doubtful nnd malicious demons. The Talmudlsts claim that the army of angels ex pressed in ngures amounted to 1,001,340,000, 000,000, and the number of demons amounted to tne number ol 7,405,826. These were classified according to rank, where the eye was permitted to see these evil spirits no living uciuK mum cxisi, ine laimuuist ADai says: " They are more numerous than we, and they are everywhere round about us." Rav-lluna says : " bach of us has 1000 on his left and 10.000 on bis right side." Un to this il.iv thr. pious Turk bows to his right and left after his prayers to sauue the goctl and evil spirts wnu are supposed io accompany him. From all this can be seen hnui Ihe belief in a spirit world around and about us up to the highest regions is something very old and that the spiritualists of to-day are nothing ahead ' to those of the past ages. The present condition of civiliza tion is also the cause that the spirits of the present age are more civilized than formerly, but the fundamental idea of spiritualism is the same to-day as it was thousands of veare .inn. There arc only good angels that influence the i.iiuii ui uiiiii, me evu one is represented without Psyche or Soul and does not exist or live after death. This is his punishment. But the man gives up his soul nfter this life and it nas a graded ascent to heaven. Space the airless void and everything else round about us is filled with angels just as the anti-delu- vian people nad thought of it. Spiritualismis the last inheritance from Ihe times of ignorance and sunerstition and who ever is a deciple of the same, cannot Uy claim to being an enlightened and educated human being.
