October 17th—The lineal policy of this a liulnirfra’ton D the rock upon which the Republican party is splitting In Congress and upon which It will split throughout the na tion If the administration plans are carried out- The word ‘policy’ Is used figurative ly, for the proposed procedure in mat ters of taxation particularly, involves no policy that Includes either the prin- j, clples of finance or economics. Scheme is the better word, for it amounts sole ly to a scheme to relieve profiteering corporations of a Just tax and shift that burden unjustly upon the already overburdened small taxpayer, includ ing the smaller corporations. This split among Republicans in the Senate is so much in view that even the President’s Washington newspaper mouthpiece is compelled to take note of It- After citing a proposed coalition between the Progressive Republicans and Democrats on the tax bill and the alleged plan of the Democrats to vote ! for a sales tax amendment and then j vote against the bill in company with ! Republicans opposed to the sales tax. the Washington Post says: 'Either horn of the dilemma threat ens dlaaater to the Republics,, party. Jn whose ranks the split of discord is daily growing wider. The present sit uation at the Capital is disclosing to public view a fact which cannot much longer be concealed, that the Repuhll can party to-day la not functioning smoothly and efficiently because It is no longer thinking as a unit. Its mem bers are as far apart aa the poles on some of the greatest questions under lying what Is attempted to he made Into definite policy. The bonds which held its compo nent parts together during the cam paign. when Republicans of all shades of opinion were actuated by a common opposition to what became known as 'Wllsonlsm,' are to-day falling asun der. The serious feature of the situa tion from the party's point of view Is not that the party Is not working har moniously hut that the fundamental differences between Republicans are today as great. If not actually greater than they were In 1912.’ And then as if to show the helpful and constructive efforts of the Demo crats in behalf of honeat taxation, the Post adds: The Democrats have selxcd this op portunity to propose to the Progressive Republicans certain dcflnitf amend ments which might be written Into the Taste is a matter of tobacco quality We Mtte it u our honest belief ' that the tobaccos used in Chester field are of finer quality (and hence of better taste) than in any other cigarette at the price. Liggett Sc Myen Tobacco Co. Chesterfield CIGARETTES , of Turkuh and Domestic tobacco*—blended yfdti pending tax bill to make it more ac ceptable to both.’ All of this mind you, comes from a newspaper, accepted as the adminis tration organ at the Capital, which faithfully chronicles the activities ol the administration, political and social including the marvelous feata of Bud get Commissioner Dawes and hla In visible savings,’ the goings out and timings In of the valiant Brigadier General Hawycr. the diversions of Laddie Iloy and the bull pup, with the editorial page liberally spread over the lemon meringue of adulation. However, the Post is to be compli mented upon the accuracy of its vision and the boldness to a point out 'a fact which cannot much longer be conceal ed.’ I Democratic Constructive Tax Amend- The proposed Democratic amend ments to the pending tax bill were pre sented by Senator Simmons of North Carolina. I n an enlightening speech dealing with the repeal or modifica tion of existing taxes and the impos ition of new taxes. The program as stat(*d by him Is as follows: To Increase the corporate Income taxes, making the maximnm range from 12% per cent to 29 per cent. In stead of a flat of 15 per cent, esti mated to raise from $<10,000,000 to S7O 000.000 additional revenue. ' To retai,, the capital stock tax on corporations, which It is proposed fo repeal, estimated to yield about $75- 000.000. To repeaf the S2OOO exemption on coroprate Incomes. To confine individual exemptions to S2OOO In case of incomes below $20.- 000 and above SSOOO estimated to yield $15,000,000. To restore the surtax to a maximum of 52 per cent on Incomes in excess of $500,000. estimated to yield about $55,000,000. Repeal of the transporation tax- Senator Simmons declared that the tax hill should not he made a party or s sectional question, hut that It shonld |he a bill fair In the distribution of j the tax burden : that would raise suf ficient revenue and contribute tQ the relief of business and Industry. The Democrats in Congress did the right thing when they unanmously de termined to support the Administra tion in its dlsnrament efforts.

In most men’s bodies nre little growths of tissue culled tubercles In which He concealed the germs of tuberculosis. These tubercles form spherical wulb around the genus, called tubercle bacilli, and thus Imprison the germs. Af long as the wall Is strong and uubroken the germs cannot spread; they caus< no illness and are no more to be feared than a common wurt or a mole Ir the skin. If the tissues around the tubercles function normally, these to remain strong and so tight that few or no bacilli can make their way out of them and spread throughout the body. But too prolonged activity of th« body as a whole, or of the part In which may be the tubercles, will In general bring about conditions that favor the weakening of the tubercle wull am the emergence of bacilli. We heal tuberculosis by rest —of a knee, of the lungs, of the whole body We become 111 with tuberculosis by reason of overstrain. Other discuses especially those that cause Inflammations and congestions In the lungs, whip up the physiological activities of the body and throw a strain upon the walls of tubercles.

In ... ... .». - .......... ii..„ fnr tiwiiitli hvirlpnA iiliiim tn tparh A line with tills prophecy, the new cninpulun for mouth hyulcno ulms to teach three things: ........ .. . 1 How much damage is done to the general health of the body by an unclean mouth, with teeth badly broken down, lar B e cavltlea or Indaineed gums. 2. proper methods of correcting mouth diseases. 3 How to prevent dental disease. Very few persons realize that the three vital source# of life, food, water, and air, are affected by mouth conditions. No one can live without these three things. The Government spends enormous sums to Insure the cleanli ness of food and water. Housewives see that cooking utenslla, china and cutlery are washed so that the food may be served clean. All the details of bringing pure food to the mouth nre carefully looked after, but when It imsses the lips the food Is abandoned and left to Its fate, for most mouths are unclean, and food, however clean before, becomes quickly contaminated after It passes the lips. j , How can the mouth best be kept clean and dental decay prevented? Here are four practical suggestions: 1. Have the mouth put In good condition hy a good dentist. Go to the best man thnt you cun And. It Is economy of health and pocketbook to go to him often. Three or four times a year should he the minimum. 2. X-Ray examinations of the teetli should he made to ascertain the condition of root-fillings, and the condition of bone surrounding the root-ends of the teeth, for It Is these areas that mny cause systemic disturbances which will lower resistance to disease. All teeth with tne pulps removed (nerves killed) must be held as suspicious characters until proven Innocent. The lack of pain Is not a safe sign of no Infection. There may be a “blind” abscess, which only the X-Ray can discover. 3. Get your dentist to give .you minute directions as to the proper way to perform your mouth toilet. It Is necessary to spend at least three minutes every nlglit and every morning brushing your gums and teeth. In order to properly cleans** them. That amount of time and energy will give you big dividends In good health. Remember a clean tooth will not decay, and a clean mouth will not pollute the food. Stop the use of free sugar because sugar will cause the decay of teeth more than any other one thing. Nature never Intended that we should use sugar In a concentrated form, but preferred to give it to us In Its natural state; namely. In fruits and vegetables. I would like to paraplmse thnt well known quotation from Robert Burns, “Oh, would the gift the good God give us to see our mouths as the dentist sees' them.” The dentist not only sees tlie unclean mouth with Inflamed gums, hut lie sees the long chain of event*, namely, an unclean mouth, small cavities, large cavities, pollution of food with digestive disturbances, death of the tooth pulp, abscesses at the end of the root, absorption of tlie poison, lowered resistance agnlnst disease, and finally broken down health. The late Professor Osier, who held a place fit the head ot the profession of medicine, said: “You have one doctrine to preach, and you have to preach It early and late. In season and out of seuson. It is the gospel of cleanliness ot the mouth, cleanliness of the teeth, cleanliness of the threat. These three things musr.be your text through life. Oral hygiene—the hygiene of the mouth—not one single thing Is more Important to the public In the whole range of hygiene than that." -g IEBBTI IyfTTIT TTT — CASH FOR Butter-Fat and Eggs Service, Correct Weights and tests.
