Nailing a Republican Falsehood.
Republican orators and organs as usual are inaccurately describing! the fiscal condition of the national government. The facts are that ex clusive of emergency expenditures, the appropriations of the present session of Congress are $36,510,983 less than the regular session unaer the preceeding. Republican Con gress. "Why is it," the Republican ask, "that it is necessary to impose special taxes to make good a defici ency in revenue?" The answer is easy. There is a great war in Europe, involving Austria, Hungary, Belgium. France, Germany, Russia, Servia, Montenegro and Great Britain. During the last fiscal year these warring nations sold to the United States $385,989,531 worth of goods, on which they paid tariff duties to the government amount ing to $125,811,000. The war has cut off practically all of this trade and this revenue, so that in the coming year it will be necessary to supply that loss, due entirjly to the European war. by special taxes. In the proposed revenue law two-thirds of this $100,000,000 necessary to raise is to be produced, through taxes upon beer, wine, and other articles admittedly luxuries. These taxes are all temporary in charac ter, and by the express terms of the bill the stamp tax will expire De cember 1st, 1915. r U false to say that the Under wood Tariff Bill has failed as a rev nue producer, for the fact is at the end of the first fiscal year of its operation it had paid all of the cur rent expenses of the government and left a surplus of $33,000,000 in the general treasury. Democratic Bulletin. Fall Planting of Bulbs. By H. F. Major. In choosing a vocation do not ask yourself how you can make the most money or t;aio the most no toriety, but choose the work that will call out all your powers and develop your manhood into the greatest strength and symetry. Not money, not notoriety, not fame even, but power is what you want Manhood is greater than wealth, greater than fame. Character is greater than anv career.

If you are a master in your line, the world will applaud you and all doors will fly open to you. But it condemns all botches, aborations and failures. Frankford Chronicle. What's Doinf In Europe?
