Oeelans That the Muftl-Milllonaire Is
Not a Healthful Development of the
Country, Although We Must Respect
His Energy and Ability—If Guilty
of Wrongdoing He Is the Worst of
New York, July 16.—The Outlook
has an article by Theodore Roosevelt
entitled "Oive Me Neither Poverty
Nor Riches." It says, in part:
"It Is to be wished that some of
those who preach and practice a go*
pel of mere materialism and greed
and who speak as If the heaping up
of wealth by the cqpimunlty or by
the Individual was in itself the be-all
and end-all of life would learn from
the most widely read and oldest of
books th.it true wisdom which teaches
that it is well to have neither great
poverty nor great riches.
"The movement which has become
so strong during the past few year°
to secure on behalf of the nation both
an adequate supervision of and an
effective taxation of vast fortunes, so
far as their business use is concerned,
is a healthy movement. It alms to
replace Bullen discontent, restless
pessimism and evil preparation foi
revolution hy an aggressive, healthy
determination to get to the bottom of
our troubles and remedy them.
"The multi-millionaire is not per se
a healthy development in this coun
try. If his fortune rests on a basis of
wrongdoing he is a far more dunger
ous criminal than any of the ordinary
types of criminals can possibly be. If
his fortune is the result of great serv
ice rendered, well and good he
serves respect and reward for such
service, although we must remember
to pay our homage to the service it
self and not to the fortune, which Is
the mere reward of the service, but
when his fortune is passed on to some
one else who has not rendered the
service then the nation should Impose
a heavily graded progressive inherit
ance tax, a singularly wise and unob
jectionable kind of a tax. It would be
a particularly good thing if the tax
bore heaviest on absentees."

There in only one way to cure deafness

Deafness is caused by an intiamed con

condition, hearing will be destrojed for
