Is tlie very first item oq tlie list of ar
ticles which had that imposition called
war tax taken off it, but the 10c per
pound on tea still remains. Well, that's
pretty work for the politicians; you
can readily see what kind of men have
.been sent to Washing-ton. Just reflect
on this matter. Keeping a duty of 10
cents per pound on tea, an article
which is a
necessity (providing you i
wish to enjoy good health and a loug
and happy life) and taning uie ia.v uu
a drink (beer), which is a costly luxury
and in many instances raises ructions
and causes many a sore "heart and black
pvc and sometimes is the direct cause
f snPTiflin-r n thirtv or sixty days
cation in jail or town houso. bay, me
politicians who made the above blun
der virtually passed a law the other
day whereby tlie soldiers are deprived
of "their beer, yet the same fellows took
the tax off the '-stuff." For pity, sake
are they insane? Well, we sent the
lawmakers over to Washington and we
must abide by their decision. Reinem
ber, it doesn't matter whether they
leave the tax on Tea or nor. we will
look after our patrons' welfare and
see they get the good quality every
time. WeVuai-antct- our Tea and Cof
fee to be the top nouh quality, and.
we sell at the bottom notch price. If
vou doubt us just give up a trial, then
judge for yourself whether we tell the
truth or not at
