Whon cortain well moaning people discuss meana for aug? menting tho fotlcrul revenue llioy suggest ndiling another tax mi the automobile. They g?nn the theory Ihn) if a man Int? money enough in own a our be can nllord id pay an udditionul tux for the pleas uro of ith use, apparently giv? ing nn tbnllglit to the fact that the car owner in iilroudy paying heavily for that privilege. When the tax iiHHoHNor comet) around be lints u man's automo? bile UK a part nf Iiih property, upon which tuxes urn paid, lie pays an annual license fee to the Mute unit to the city in which ho lives. Ho puy? an excessive price for the gun an oil winch houses, mill in Homo stiller, one cent a gallon of the cost of gas goes into the tux fund. This simply nilds a cent lo the price nf gas. There are many excellent au? tomobile repair men, but the country is over run with a lot of sharks who know about as much about tho mechanism of it cur us ii line tor does iibotll shoeing a horse. The car own or doesn't fuel these birds oil I until they put his car on the "blink" ami he has to have the work done over again. The law ulTords him un protection ngtlillHl these sharks, unless he takes the matter into a court in the way of a civil suit, If it pedestrian or a child Sud? denly stops in frmil of a moving car without warning und is in? jured it is always tho driver who is at fault and who pays the bill. Public sentiment nev? er concedes thai it is possible for him In he in the right. The automobile is in greater use today than (be horse ami buggy, mid motor vehicles are rapidly displacing the wagon in commercial use. We hear no cry ing demand fnr placing a special lax on wagons umi buggies, or horses or mules. And yet periodically some ox eollont citizen arises mid do. mauds that the motorist bo soaked again. Tho car owner bus I.u Well plucked as it is. He should not be pared to the hone. The honesty of some people is d. pe itlont wholly upon what they can not get* away with without gutting caught. Milll pays for bis Hins here below hut the devil dncaon't give him nny credit on ac? count Kew men are ever without friends until they begin to bor? row money from I hem. Do you out three good moods a Buy? You should considor yournolf fortunntoin the prosont cooditioo of tho world. Uvor in Europe thoro uro millions and millions of people who aro liv ing on no moro than one mnal a day, whiln other millions do not have oven that much. Starva? tion in gathering thorn in. Tho world is in a state of chaos. It is on its luick and cnn not rise again without intinitu patience and much assistance. Whuu a herd of stoors become frighten? ed they either mill around or stampede. Tho population of the world is much the sumo. It is bndly frightnnod?mining around?on tho verge of uStum? ped 0?uncertain as to what to do or which way to turn. We are less alllictod in America than in any other country, ami wo should be proportionately thankful for what we have. While wo are feasting on three meals a day thoro are other hu? man beings who hunger for the crumbs wo throw away. The little children romping around today will become the men and women of another generation. They will control the destiny of Ibis community thou, us- we control it now. Community betterment is al? ways the goal of every goud citizen. It is Ihn great lubri? cant which causes the wheels of enlightenment to spin noise? lessly and In a purpose. To in? sure ii belter community for the future we must begin with the children of today. If in their Childhood they are taught to dilTorouliatc hotween wisdom und foolishness, between the good und the bad, between right und wrong, the lessons they learu will bear golden fruit in after years, and the community we love so well will be brighter und bettor because of the influ? ence limy will exert upon the citizenry of their day. Itcmom her the little children of today, for tomorrow limy will have Children of their own, and the law nf heredity is strong with us all. The sun shim s brightly when we push I he clouds away, but the little child has not \ et learned to push. The Itussian bolsboviki, hnv. ing failed In annihilate the world, is now begging I he world I to prevent starvation from km ' inhibiting them. When at a hms as to what to Bli) about your neighbor, say something good, VOU may come I nearer the truth than you im? agine; We learn from the secretary of the treasury thai cleaner money is to lie put into circula? tion. That is pleasing. When we get it il will be still more pleasing. Hut until we do, just kei p tight on sending in the dirty old stutV ami we'll beeler linlly pleased.
