When the Food Administrator wanted pledge cards signed, and they were mailed out to the teach ers, 40 per cent of the people were never called on; 30 per cent called on were visited by school child ten who knew nothing of the im portance et the pledge.

There is only one way to cure catarrhal deafness and that is by a constitutional reme-dCatarrhal Deafness is caused by an inflamed condition of the mucous lining of the Eustachian Tube. When this this tube is inflamed you havs a rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and when it is entirely closed, Deaf ncss is the result. Unless the inflammation can be reduced and this tube restored to its normal condition, hearing will be destroy ed forever. Many cases of deaf- ness are caused by catarrh, which is an inflamed condition of the mucous surfaces. Hall's Catarrh Medicine acts thru the blood on the mucous surfaces of the system.

Of course, persons residents in other counties may, if they want to, come and see the income tax man who will be In a communication received by this paper, Collector of Internal Revenue Hughes announces that a Pederae Income Tax officer will be sent totiiis county and will be in Mt. Vernon from January 2nd, to Januaty 8th, inclusive. On arriving he will notify the cal postmaster and bankers as to the location of bis office and will be there every day ready and willing to help persons subject to the income tax make out their returns without any cost to them for his service. How many income tax papers will be there in this county? If you can guess how many married persons living with wife or husband will have net incomes of $2,000 or over snd how many persons will have net incomes of $1,000 or over this vear, then you know. The Collector of Internal Revenue esti mates that there will be 290 taxpayers in this county. Returns of income for the year of 19 7 must be made on forms provided for the purpose before March 1, 1918. Because a good many people dent understand the law and wont know how to make out their returns, the government is sending in this expert to do it for them. But the duty is on the taxpayer to make himself known tothegovernment. If he doesn't make return as required before March st, he may have a penalty ranging from $20 to $1,000, pay a 1 un-imrri- ed fine or go to jail. So if you dent Collector Ky. want to take chances on going tc 8th District Mt. Vernon. The Collector suggests that everybody start figuring up now his income and expenses so as to be ready with the figures when the expert arrives. Expenses, however, don't mean family expenses, money ued to pay off the principal of a debt, new machinery, buildings, or anything like that. They mean what you spend in making your money-interest- , taxes paid, hired help, amount paid for goods sold, seed, stock bought for feeding, rent (except for your dwelling), etc Income includes about every dollar you get. st 1 SASTOSIA CHAMBERLAIN'S COUGH REMEDY.
