Colds Really Enjoyable Diversion If
One Can Escape Need for a Doctor
From the London Times
At this moment nearly everybody has got a cold. Yet it may
be doubted whether the sum total of human happiness is sensibly
the smaller on that account. It w.ould almost certainly be the
greater were it not for the annoyance caused by other people hav
ing colds as well as ourselves. A good, honest, straightforward
cold in the head comes as near as may be to solving the problem
of eating our cake and having it. We cannot work, since offices
are traditionally draughty, but we can play, because a day’s golf
in the fresh air would be the very thing. We cannot see tiresome
callers; they would not like to see such lepers as we are, for the
rule is, as a small girl explained, that “when people have colds you
only kiss their hands.” If agreeable callers like to take the risk
of seeing us, that is another matter. Again, when the full tide, of
a cold is surging, it is well known that not the nastiest medicine
avails; there is even something impious in interfering with the
course of nature. At the same time much can be done in strength
ening the constitution to resist a cold, and, as Mr. Sawyer re
marked, if ever hot punch did fail in such cases it was owing to
the vulgar error of not taking enough. Nor have we even to make
our consciences elastic in order to believe these surprising facts.
They are seriously urged upon us by those who minister to us so
There is something about a cold which induces in us a pleasant
childishness. The schoolboy who “stays out” at once adopts a
different attire; he puts on a tall collar and a variegated tie, not
because stick-ups are more comfortable than turn-downs—for they
demonstrably are not—but because they mark him out as a crea
ture apart. The grown-up adopts a cqurse which, though super
ficially the exact converse, is really identical, since it springs from
the same motive. Ho dallies with the glorious notion of no collar
at all. Domestic limelight is better than none at all. And, if a
cold is bad enough, there is the same childish flavor in the joys of
convalescence. We are endued with a new keenness and cleanness
of sensation, a beautifully innocent greediness. Chicken suddenly
appears to be, as it was years ago, in a totally different realm of
enjoyment from mutton. It becomes, in short, a treat, and a treat
can only be something which we are allowed by others, not that in
which we can indulge ourselves. There is also the thrill of pro
motion, from whiting to chicken, from bed before dinner to bed
afterwards. No early sensation is so hard to recapture as this
pride in sitting up late; only the convalescent can do it. But, un
fortunately, when a cold has been as bad as all that, it has defeated
its own end. For those who are contemplating one, it qjay be laid I
down that a cold which calls for the doctor is not worth having.
Tax Or. Tyranny.
Senator Cousens, of Michigan,
made a statement to the Senate of
his experiences with the Income tax
and the internal revenue depart
ment He and other minority stock
holders in the Ford company wanted
to aell their- holdings ,to Ford. They
wanted to know in "advance what
the income tax on the traneferred
shares would be. Commissioner
Roper, then of the internal revenue
department, made an advance ap
praisal of the value of the stock as
of March, 1913. The value was
found to be $8,900 a share. It
was sold to Ford at $12,600 a share.
Couzens and the others paid Income
tax on the Increase from the ap
praised value to the cash value.
Now the oase has been reopened.
It Is within a few days of the limi
tation under statute. Th'vt period
la five years. When It Is closed the
government is stopped, but for five
years It has the power to reopen
Income tax questions, present new
demands, etc. In this case the in
ternal revenue bureau now holds
that the value of the Ford stock In
March, 1913, was only $2,600, not
$3,900 a dhare, and that the tax
should have been on tho difference
between $2,600 and the sale price of
$12,600. The tax. It Is held, should
have been based on $91,000,000 ln
