The effort to tax farm mortgages, to
be made by the Farmers' arid Laborers
federation is ridiculous. The taxing of
farm mortgages would only make the
farmer, pay taxes on twice that amount,
for it would to a certainty raise the rata
of interest. Men who loan money would
en v charge a higher rate of interest to
cover the mortgage tax. If a law could
be enforced taxing incomes it would be
a sensible thing and one we would be
glad to see enacted, but there' is but little
use of attempting such a thing in Ameri
ca, l here is something very distasteful
to Americans in a set of government spies
whose duty it is to pry into every man's
private affairs, and by such a set of spies
alone could an income tax be collected.
Yet if the farmers and laborers' would
turn their attention to the nactnient and
then the eufnrcement of such a law, it
would be very beneficial to the common
wealth. But the taxing of farm mort
gages is one of the wildest schemes on
record and could only result disastrously
to the agricultural community. Then
the same convention calls in one breath
for the issue of more greenbacks and the
unlimited coinage of silver- Thi3 in the
face of the fact that millions of dollars
more are now coined annually than are
put into circulation. Inflation is not a
wise policy any more than is Contraction
of the currency . Tha debtor class may
wish a lot of cheap currency with which
to paythpir debts, but the. issue of un
united quantities of any kmdTf a circu

In a recent article in the
minion, on "How to cure
a cold," the
writer advises a hot lemonade to be taken
at bedtime. It is a dangerous treatment,
especially during the severe cold weather
of the winter months, as it opens the
pores of the skin and leaves the system
in such condition that another and much
more severe cold is contracted. Many
years constant use and the experience of
thousands of persons of all age's, has fully
demonstrated that there is nothing better
for a severe cold than Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy. It acts in perfect
harmony with nature, relieves the lungs,
liquefies the tough tenacious mucus'
making it easier to expectorate, and
restores the system to a strong and
healthy condition . Fifty cent bottles for
