Himself a wealthy man. Governor Pinchot has been attacking “In trenched wealth ” for a third of a cen lurv. He was one of the mainstays of the third party movement of Theo dore RooeevHt. He has had his lightn ing rod up to catch a possible third party nomination this year —but. in -pite of bard times, there hasn't been much lightning. One must praise the American peo ple for their patience, for their en durance of suffering." Governor Pin chot remarks. “In Pennsylvania alone, there are approximately l 15o,uu»> persons out of work, not counting tnose deprived of part-tiarce jobs.

He would begin constructively, with a *6,OOO.iMPM> bond issue for public works. He would tax wealth. And he would feed the hungry with government money.

Governor Pinchot urges the passage of the La Follette bill to co-ordinate fact finding and to apply the statistics toward a broad federal public works plan. Governor Pinchot sees tne depres sion as further concentrating wealth. “In lft 3b. 313 persons in th« United States had an income of |1.200,000i000. “It would be possible for these 513 to give each of the 48 states $25,000,000 HENDERSON, (N.

"Oh. that bored me to tears?" said the glrL Lillian's Aral customer? One of the barbers signaled for her to come over to his chair. “This gentleman wants a mani cure,” he said. “ A - right." answered Lillian quickly. “I'll be right over" she forced a smile. She though: “Maybe he’ll leave a good tip.” She guessed that was the sort of thing one would hope. . . . The boa« had given her a box of manicure tools, also the necessary oils. pßmice. cotton, etc. But her hand shook. She'd never given a manicure In her life, only had them given. She wondered what 1 would happen should she cut a cut!- > cle too deep, file a nail too clone. . . but that waa not the aort of thing a gtr! who had to consider a salary of IS a week should think. She should think of the right things, not the wrong things. When she went back to Beasie's table to get a nail brush Bessie touched her arm. “Say. kkL you’re faking. I know. You’ve never been on tbe inside of a manicure table In your life before.” Lillian waa taken completely off of her guard. She looked Into the mascaraed eyes of Bessie and hoped for mercy. Then Lillian said: “What are you going to do about It— ls I am?” “Nothing—not a thing” Bessie said, and her theatrical looking face took on a smile. “Help you." “Oh. thanks," breathed Lillian.” end you won't tell the boss?" Lillian knew by the expression in her eyes she wouldn’t. Bessie said: "1 never squealed In my life.

Governor Pinchot attributes a large part of the present federal tax trou bles to his old antagonist, Andrew Mellon former secretary of the treas ury. now ambassador to Great Bri tain. “He cut the millionaires surtax to less than one-third of its former fig ure," Governor Pinchot says. "Mr. Mellon’s surtax reductions were worth, to the men with the top bracket incomes, an average of almost a million dollars a year apiece. "The last slicing of the surtax in 1926 saved Mr. Mellon himself exact ly $828,348. "If the income tax reductions put through by Mr. Mellon had not been made the Mellon deficit never would have happened. FIRE MENACE STILL EXISTS IN FORESTS Dully Dlwpafeh Btirenai, la the Sir Walter Hotel. DY J. IIASKKHVIL.L. Raleigh, April 7 —The forest fire .! anger has by no means disappeared, even if there has been some rain and even if the trees are putting out green leaves, according to J. S. Holmes ?tate Forester. The woods and for ests are stiH very dry and with the vigerous April winds that are blow ing almost daiiy. only a few hours are required , for a little woods fire to de velop into a big forest fire. Forester Holmes said. Several fires are being reported al most doily, though so far none of these seem to have done very, much damage, Mr. Holmes said. Only yes terday a call for assistance was re ceived from Franklin county, where a fire was reported raging not far from Franklinton. Franklin county is not one of Che counties participating in the state’s forest fire protection sys tem. and the State has no money with which to fight fires in non-!parti cipating counties. However, Mr* Hol mes sent Assistant State Forester C. H. Flory to FrankHn county at once to be of any assistance he aould to those who were trying to fight the fire. It was eventually brought under control. ROADs”WELL KEPT IN THE NORTHWEST Dali}' Dtapatrh Bunpuii, la Ilf Sir Walter Hefei. BY J. C.
