source of profit, for forty-five cars of

clared to be $1,306,498,162, and the
state levy was fixed at 1.30 mills.
The Board of Equalization adopted
the Tax Commission’s report and
raised Pitcher’s assessment of Denver

added to the corporate assessments,

gal right to increase the valuation on
Colorado property by the sum of $186,-
561,658, they had no hesitation in say
ing that they did not believe that Den
ver, Weld and other counties, whose
assessments were arbitrarily raised,
would extend the increases on their
books, unless the state board brought
mandamus suits to compel them to
do so.

hurst, the militant British suffragist,

Much so-called rheumatism is caused
by weakened kidneys. When the kid

the acid forms into crystals like bits
of broken glass in the muscles, joints
and on the nerve casings. Torturing

whenever it is moved. By curing the

Two-Dollar Bill More of a Nuleance
Than Its Value Can Be Made
to Justify.
Countless persons who have some
time or other accepted change for one
dollar for a two-dpllar bill will be In
terested In the story of "Ole Prince"
Robinson, the colored barber in the
House barbershop at Washington.
When the sergeant-at-arms offered him
five $2 bills the other day as part of
his pay, Robinson waved them widely
away, declaring that every $2 bill car
ries with it the “Egyptian curse,” that
he would rather break a looking-glass
walk under a ladder or turn back with
out making a cross-mark than take
a $2 bill, because it was a sure sign
of 111 luck.
Whether there is an "Egyptian
curse” on the $2 not or not, there-has
certainly been many an American
curse put on it. It is the easiest thing -
in the world, victims will tell you, to
pass out a two for a one and not dis
cover the loss until you begin search,
for that other dollar you had, but
haven’t any more. A currency reform
that would eliminate the $2 bill and
the hoodoo at the same time would
be a reform that would save money
for generations to come.
Invalid’s Sweet Patience.
Who does the most complaining in
this world? Not the invalids. For
hours on hours they lie there, secretly
resolving, “Let me make myself less
a sorrow to others than I was yester
day.” And these are the victories,
grander far than those of war. When
these moral conquests are extended
over months, perhaps years, the heroic
sufferer's room often becomes a cham
ber of comfort to all who are unhappy.
What a triumph when to the chair of
some grand martyr come the friends
of a wide circle that her gentle hand
may wipe away their tears. These are
the uncrowned queens of our race. In
almost every home there is. a name
above every name—that of the sweet
and patient Invalid.
There are now more than 1,800
aeroplanes in regular and active serv
ice in France.
