System. , The average man doesn't like the idea that some unknown auditor hid den away in a corridor of the tax bu Veau is able to make etranjje decisions and throw the burden of disproof and the cost of litigation tn the unfortu nate victim. See how the system worked out for the Lincoln Motor company. This con cern bought from the war department nn airplane plant for 55 per cent of its original cost. Some bright young man in th tax ' office ruled that the tax flioulil be assessed not at the price the war department had been glad to get, but at the llK) per cent original valua tion. But that wasn't all. The aanie pr another tax genius ruled that the 15 per cent which tiie company did not fay for th plant was profit, taxable t the maximum of SO per cent. Thu lefore a bolt or a hub cp had been anade in the plant, it had, for tax. pur )ksp made a trcmemloua profit al most as much as the plant cost, j The results were diatrou8 from the i-ompany'a atandpoinU- At a- time when its head were ne gotiating a loan the treasury present -fi a pay-now" demand for $400.000 ii taxes. ' 1 It was far greater than the company iad figured, the loan fell through, and as a result the company went into bankruptcy. In addition almosrt a dor.en other companies were pulled down into bank ruptcy w'h the larger concern. The tax case was appealed, the company of course paying the cost. In the short space of less than 50 days the decision was reversed and the taxes reduced bv four million dollars! "But the decision, quick as it whs, comes too late. The usunl proceedings in bankruptcy must go on, the news of failure hurts the sale of new cars, the damage has been done. Xor is there anything in the decision to put back on their feet immediately the other smaller companies which suf fered also through tha mistake. When some unknown clerk can make a quick decision, overruled a short time later, which lias ir. the meantime, ruined a large company and its amaller depend ents, and thrown a large number of men out of work, it doesn't seem right to the average citizen. 1'rinters Ink.

Waysido Tales. The Sovereign Right to Talk. The more severe the pressure of work, the greater the need of flood of irrelevant talk. That seems to be the motto of the United States Senate. It never had before it a larger list of important bills. It never killed so much time with so much idle discourse. This has become a subtle form of ob structing the public business. Senators do not openly advocate a blockade of the calendar, but their endless voicing of ail the thoughts that arise in them does in fact blockade it. This was rec ognized by Senator Jones of Wash ington, who proposed the remedy of a rule requiring a senator to fpeak to the question before the Senate. The suggestion was received with a gasp, n if it were something revolu tionary. Senator King of I'taJi is naint .ill rules to limit debate in the Senate, or to compel speaking to the question, fr the conclusive reason that senator are representatives of 'Sov ereign states" and as such oitghtnot to be interfered with in any way when they ris to witch t he world with no ble "oatorv.

The placenta shell, fouiid in ahund dancc in the southern Philippine is lands, offers a unique ,practical and decorative ' resource in home "adorn ment. Being fairly flat anl roughly" cir cular, translucent and 'up to three inches in diameter and about one sixteenth inch thick, the placenta shell serves the better class of Philippine bouse in place of glass. The strong tropical light is pleasingly modified as it passes through the shell-panes held together by wooden strips or lead bands A gentleman who has lived in Manila and traveled the Philippines extensive ly say that windows of placenta shells 'arc almost the invariable rule in houses that have covered windows, very little .'commercial glass being used in the if lands. ! . .:. Decoratively, the placenta shell should find many uses. It is already licing worked up by the I'll ilippinen, under American direction, into lamp t.hade frames in moat pleasing shapes. The shells are being imported into San Francisco, the freightage being about ?I5 per ton (equivalent to about forty cubic feet of space). They ar? being sold in 'Frisco 'at $25 per 1000 shells, chiefly to repair objects in placenta shell that have Income damaged in transit from Manila. It seems that the placenta shell might find a limited application in furniture, ae in cabinet door inserts of medallions in pnaels, in wood or metal screens where the vision but not the light is to be barred. , , But the greatest use of this uncious ly beautiful shell would seem to lie in the domain of the lighting fixture and lamp industry, where effects can be produced by transmitted light in a sure and most "charming manners. Since the shells are light gray in color value, they will harmonize in any environment. In fact, they will take on the tonal character of any environ ment in which they are placed with out obtruding their color into the pic ture. In this respect, they may be found even more useful than the far framed alabaster of ancient days. The virtues of the placenta shell as a illuminant are worthy of investiga tion by the lighting fixture" industry Oood Furnishing Magazine. suicide, homicide and automobile acci dents. ' ' While the 1021 figures may in part, be traceable in exceptional - circum-, stances, there is every reason to be lieve they represent two important drifts in the attitude of the race to ward itself. A decrease in one.; year from 05,0tfl to 40,013 deaths' attribu table to respiratory .diseases is signi ficant. So is the fact that while tuber culosis now claims one in every nine policy-holders, it claimed one in every four but 10 years ago. The ago of science has found weapons to repulse many an ill of which human flesh was once the inevitable prey, But it ; has also given men new: playthings ' and tangled them in a . strange and harassing form of exist ence. Man of the airplane, motor car. the 'office, and the factory is finer edged than he was. He has more in strumeuta with which to harm him self, and if his capacity for; restraint is -no less than it was the strain upon it is greater. His tendency toward greater self-destruction is definite. Of course, it need not be permanent. The increase in what might lie called traf fic deaths is largely due the careless ness. Laivs and administration of the laws touching accidents can improve away the increase in deaths due to such CHUses. . The problem of homi cide is also susceptible of treatment. The skill which man has lieen Rhlc to bring to his fight against disease is as potentially useful in the obvious battle to be waged against the careless and vicious of his own kind. N'cw York Qlobe.
