necessary funds to carry- on the projects under way and main tain the plans ofthe Taft administra tion and making the demands square with a new tariff scheduleIs the work with which President Taft Sen ator Aldrich Speaker Cannon and Secretary of the Treasury MacVeagh were engaged at a twohour conference at the White House The necessity for the enactment of a tariff hill at the earliest possible moment was discussed there being little reference to the details of the proposed legislation Whether a defi nite policy was outlined at the conference could not be stated That the manufacturers and other large inter ests are demanding early tariff legis lation and that the business condi tions of the country will be necessar SECRETARY MACVEAGH Believes Stamp Tax May Be Neces sary to Repair Treasury Deficit ily unsettled until the tariff schedules are finally fixed by congress were the principal reasons given for the desire to permit nothing to interfere with prompt action by congress at tne spe- cIal session The possible delay which the house insurgents may cause by promulgat ing a fight on the rules and the fur ther difficulties that may be put in the way of getting the tariff bill through without delay were thoroughly gone into The conferees agreed that every Republican in the house and senate is pledged by the party platform to let nothing Interfere with an immediate revision President Taft told the tariff re formers last week that his special message on tariff revision would con tain no reference to specific sched ules Mr Taft however has let it be known in many ways that he would be satisfied with nothing less than thorough revision In his inaug ural address he frankly called atten tion to the 100000000 deficit which confronted his administration and he suggested the possible necessity of an inheritance tax to make up some of the future revenues Franklin Mac Veagh has allowed himself to be quoted as to the possible necessity of a stamp tax It is certain that since thai confer ence there is a more definite under standing as to what may and what may not be desired of the proposed new tariff as a revenue producer If the conclusion has been reached that the tariff revision must be radical provision in the bill may be looked for which will have for Its purpose the raising of revenue by other means than a tax on Imports Sullivan Takes Office Columbus 0Y March 9

tariff bill have been sent to the government printers It is expected that by tomorrow the entire mesure will be in type- Although no announcement has been made by the house committee on ways and means regarding any of the schedules of the tentative bill it hiss been learned on unquestionable au thority that as a concession to the shoe men because of the placing ot hides on the free list the duty on shoes will be considerably reduced While no figures were obtainable regarding the steel schedule it was stated on the same authority that a substantial reduction In the duty of steel rails tools and similar products is provided for A duty of 4 cents a pound on coffee is levied This Is by way of compromise with the Porto Ricans who demanded a tax of cents a pound Whisky and beer will remain as they are at present if the subcom mittee recommendations are enacted into law It was felt that whisky was already carrying all the tax it could stand while in the cans of beer the prohibition movement throughut the country it was 0xplalnedk laid sut down the consumption of beer and it was felt that it would be a hard ship to impose any further trot It having become Manifest to the committee that the duties derived from customs under the new bill would not produce the revenue ex pected they turned to the expedient of reviving the war revenue act of 1898 which placed a tax on tele grams bank receipts playing cards and all stocks bought or sold That feature of the war revenue act is incorporated In the measure as drafted it is said A matter which ii perI xlBg the committe is the placing of

CountryWith Advertising CATALOGUES AND JOURNALS In Fighting This Serious Menace Mer chants Must Resort to Publicity and Advertise In the Local PressConc NecessaryxThe most serious problem confront ing the retail merchants of the coun try today and the one that Is giving them the most concern is that of the so called mail order systemthe retail w catalogue house trade This cis an era of comblnati- onsjtrustsbOth financial Industrial and commercial But the most menacing t ust In the world today says Max wells Talisman Is the commercial combination that tends to destroy the retail business of the country Not satisfied with the mercantile field hose commercial trusts are also seek to become the financial depositaries lie the rural districts by opening bank departments and as an Inducement to tlif farmer offering per cent on de poif Wl1e retail catalogue houses are man ii agtd by fo seeing and broad gaugeI business men who fully realize th ue of advertising They have been snefidiilg millions of dollars a year In systematic advertising campaigns In adcKfkm to their elaborate catalogues is thej sustain with their patronage bun drgfa of mail order journals These Journals have a combined circulation of 32000000 a month They are sowed roadcast through the country Nor db the catalogue houses stop here Ev 1 ery magazine agricultural or religious h paper that will accept their advertise ments carries them The lines of this great conflict between commercial interests are clearly r drawn On one side are the retail mer chants and the publishers of the local press on the other the catalogue bouses and the numerous publications which haye sprung up in a night backed by advertising appropriations that run Into the millions The enemies of the local publishers and the retail merchants are allied as perfectly as Is any other mod ern trust Many of the larger catalogue houses now do their own manufacturing In the end the Jobbers and manufacturers who now sell to the catalogue houses will be eliminated When that time comes and it certainly will come un less something Is done to prevent It a few great commercial giants mon strous In size Influence and resources having practically no competition will combine to dictate the price the mass of the people must pay for every article they sell This Inevitablele conclusion is not a pleasant one to contemplate and It behooves those who are already feeling the heavy hand of this unnatural com bInation for control of trade to bestir themselves kin their own defense and adopt measures for self protection The retail merchant and the local press are entirely unorganized and are In no concerted way making common cause against a common dancer At tempts have been made by the mer chants In some localities to stem the jobbersIgood so far as it goes but if the caw logue houses cannot get the goods from one source they will get them from an other and if necessary will buy the manufacturing plant to secure the out put So long as they can by a lavish use of printers Ink create the demand just so long will they manage to get the goods to supply that demand Fight the devil with fire Any plans for the protection of the retail mer chants and the Jobbers and the manu facturers who sell to the trade must go to the very root of the evilmust meet the catalogue house competition at every point and on their own grounds the advertising field The catalogue houses are conducting the most comprehensive systematic and farreachlng advertising campaign that was ever planned and they have been at It for years spending dollars where the retail and wholesale mer r chants have spent cents They have 41ehad the business courage to put theIr money into publicity knowing that ft they would get it back multiplied a hundredfold They have created the demand for their goods and educated the people to look upon the mail order business as a godsend What has been done in an organized way to offset this avalanche of mail or der journals and catalogues Nothing Some of the local merchants N ve advertised liberally in the local pro 1failedThe people often do not know what the local merchant has in his store neither do they know the prices but they do know what the catalogue house has to sell and the price Is always be fore the eye If the retail trade is to hold its ground against the competition of tho catalogue houses they must meet them on the broad field of advertising and publicity as well as on the field of prices And this must be done through the local press In nearly every town the local pub Usher has stood manfully by the interests of the community by refusing to run mail order advertisements Fur ther he stands ready to prosecute an aggressive campaign against the mall order idea What is necessary is con ceded action among the merchants and a liberal use of the local column- ssly to convince the people that they can save money toy trading at hoinp r ti 1i 31LI r t t1f II 4f t Tof Y r O i CY YQUNGS SEW BERtH Naps Pitching Department will Be Strengthened by Addition of Veteran One of the biggest surprises that have been sprung in baseball in a long time and it was just as the old say ing goes like a thunderclap out of n clear sky came when It was learned that the Boston Americans had traded their famous pitcher Cy Young to the Clevelands for Pitchers Chech and Ryan and a cash consideration Young pitched about as well as ever for the Bostons last year and had he been given better support he would have had almost as large a percentage of games won as any twirler in the is not a man on the Hub team now who played when they won the worlds championship in 1903 When Lou CrIger the other part of the famous battery was traded to the St Louis last December it was believed that Young would soon follow Upward of nineteen years as a pitcher in major leagues is the marvelous OLD OT YOUNG WHO WAS BXOENXZJY TRADED TO CLEVELAND record of Old Cy Young of the Bos ton Americans This stamps the elder ly youth as one of the most remarkable athletes in history He Is over forty years of age yet is regarded as one of the best pitchers in the country today none barrpd to Young Is more feared than any pitch er in the American league with the exception possible of Ed Walsh the White Sox And the ofI thIng about it all Is that Young few curves He has lots of speed but relies principally on his wonderful con trol Every batter in the American league wiifc such exceptions as the youngsters whom lie haT never pitched against has been sized up by Old Cy and he knows just what they dont like Then he goes ahead and feeds this kind of balls to them He has little preliminary motion before delivering the ball thus conserving his strength It is probably due to the few curves that he employs that he has been able to stick to the game as long as he has Three nohitnoTun games have been pitched by Old Cy since he has been in the big leagues In Philadelphia on May 5 1904 while twirling for Boston the vet eran did not allow a batter to reach first base It is impossible to say how many more years Old Cy will stick to baseball He Is apparently as valu able as ever or more so and shows no signs of letting up Young will undoubtedly strengthen the Naps twirling department and the veteran should add greatly to his long record the coming season One thing is cer taInOld Cy will be assured of good support by his team mates SCOTS SOCKER TEAM COMING Heart of Midlothian Eleven to Tour This Country Arrangements have been made by the American Football association to bring the Heart of Midlothian

Boston Massachusetts has long enjoyed the reputation of having exceed ingly learned children who are able so it is said to dispute on subjects far above the heads of their elders of oth er regions But Boston is not unique In a book entitled The Scot of the Eighteenth Century Ian Maclaren describes a similar characteristic of the CaledonianIt inevitable tendency of the Scots mind to follow out every line to its terminus even if it be over a precipice and to divide every hair till infinity is touched It is not only in church courts but in market places and in railway stations in humble cottages as well as in university societies that the Scot is disputing in every spare moment of his time from morning till night The story goes that a minister over heard a mother questioning her child as it supped its porridge after the days work was done What said this austere mother is the true relation between kirk and state according to the principles of the Free church And the favored child promptly

lawn Before retiring she pulled the window down several inches from the top to admit fresh air In the early morning hours a se vere storm came up and the loud peals of thunder and vivid flashes of lightning awakened her She arose and was about to shove the window lIP when she saw a large ball of fire she says about the size of a tobacco hogshead rolling across the lawn toward the house which so terrified her that she was unable to give any alarm Just as the ball was about to strike the front porch it exploded the force of which rendered her to gether with the other occupants of the house who had become awakenetv unconscious Besides the concussion broke every pane of glass in the hojjse shty two in number and did considerable other damage The noise and concussion were plainly heard and

theycould see an old farm house and towards this they mad frantically spurred on by tsnorting and now furious bull which was gallop Ing almost at their heels seemingly intent on their destruction

drop kick ing and tackling are mentioned as examples of the lUnd of work they the faculty members wish to encourage The awarding of the prizes which are to be in the form of trophy cups is to be entirely in the hands of the athletic department so that Hcthcrington cannot object to the intrusion of out side aid The letter follovs It hns seemed apparent to some members of the faculty that our foot ball team does not have sufficient time in the fall for the thorough drilling In the elementary details of play that Is necessary for the production of a successful team Being convinced of the advantages to be gained by spring practice in football and desiring to show their interest in the success of Missouri on the gridiron they beg leave to offer six trophy cups to be used us prizes In a football field day to be held some tlmo this spring- It Is the desire of the donors that these cups be offered as prizes in h competition consisting of punting place kicking drop kicking tackling and other such events as the athletic department may consider besty suited for the development df football skill Since the object in offering these cups Is a stimulation to spring practice and the development of players the donors stipulate that the cups should be awarded only to players vljo will be eligible in the fall and also to reserve the right to withhold their gift if in their opinion the number of men engaged has been too small the practice not sufficiently sys tematic or the period of practice pre qcdlpg the field day too short to produce results of value Coach Monllaw says that

Oil of Wintergreen Compound For many years eczema was sup posed to be a blood disease and was erroneously treated as such but now the best authorities agree that eczema is only a skiu disease and must be cured through the skin The cmi nent skin specialist Dr D D Dennis first discovered the eczema germ and his discovery was quickly taken up in both Germany and France To kill the ejzeuw germ and at the same time heal the skin Dr Dennis compounded oilof wintergreen thymol glycerine etc The remedy is a liquid not a mere salve hence it sinks right into the pores of the skin Washing with this oil of wintergreen compound seems to take the itch away at once s onl the scales drop away and the disease disappears Phillips Drug Company The pre scription has now been used so long as to have proven its

Well kept grounds In the front of houses help wonderfully in making a town attractive But the back yards should by no means be neglected and an old gardener gives some good ad vice about Improving them which is timely at this season of the year Have you a back yard Grow something in it See something grow which you have planted with your own hands No back yard is so small that It may not be made to grow something for the table and if it happens to bo a vacant lot you will be surprised at the quantities it may be made to yield un der a little dally attention awl some nightly planning If your back yard conslsts of only a few square yards that fact need not deter from en tering upon the joys of the gardener If the area at your disposal is limited the time and attention required will be correspondingly small though the pleasure it may afford will continue thr ughout the season Anybody can grow radishes and lettuce and almost anybody can cat them too so plant these first They are prompt in their payment of divi dends of pleasure for their first green paired leaves will appear in three or four days and your heartiness of welcome for them will do you vastly more good than the possession of two nickels spent for their seed If you have only a few square yards at your disposal spade It up at any time in early spring If the lot is large enough to admit of a team have it plowed once a year in the spring o fall Plant everything in rows the long way of the plot Even put your lettuce and radishes In rows This will admit the greatest ease In cultiva thou but more Important still this method will permit of the most ready substitution by subsequently planting other crops when the first have been consumedFor If your lettuce Is one long rov instead of occupying a rec tangular bed as it Is customarily grown by the toVn farmer when it Is no longei tender crisp and sweet you can clean upV the whole row and plant beans in Its place or anything else suitable to the narrow space of one rowVA high board fence Is an eyesore yet many people are unwilling to cover it with vines because sooner or later these will cause the wood to decay The tliliig to do is to put up chicken wire in front of the fence and grow the vines on the wire Foliage vines except English ivy are good for this purpose Virginia creeper and ampelopsis are two of the best of these Vines with abundant foliage make a good background for cosmos hollyhocks single dahlias and otner flowers that require support These can be tied to the wire as they grow or elsel flowering annual vines can be planted each yearcypress vine morning glory climbing nasturtiums or sweet peas for beauty For use and as a curiosity plant some mixed gourd seeds Ten cents worth will provide as many dollars worth of surprise and entertainment Of course your little garden will be a delight butit will never be rqjillur Ing as to temp you to spend more than the necessary labor or cash upon it Home Trade Philosophy- If you cast your bread upon the wa ters it may return to you after many days but if you cast your dollar into the mall order maelstrom it never gets back to your vicinity Seeing Is believing and when you see an article before you buy it you arc entitled to believe that it is worth buy lug or to let it stay unbought if other wiseFarmers who send their money into the big cities to buy goods which they might just as well buy at home will find their sons following the dollars of their diddles into the great trade cen ters as soon as the boys grow up and will have to compromise on hired men If you dont like the community you live in well enough to do your trading In that community why dont you move into some community that you like better In that case maybe somebody would take your place who would help to make it a better community to live in by helping to build it up Thousands of men throughout this country are howling down the idea of centralization of government while at the same time tijey are promoting the centralization of trade by spending money with the catalogue houses which are rapidly growing more and mote powerful Popular Street Tree There is no doubt If it Is properly handled that the pepper tree Is nearest to the ideal for street planting Thr chief and In fact the only objection urged against it is that it raises the sidewalk und pushes out the curb either by roots or buttresses of the trunk These difficulties are easily avoided if proper preparation is made says the Los Angeles Times The pep pet roots and buttresses are made above ground only because of resist ance below If the soil is loose and permeable for a considerable distance below the surface the roots will delve deeply and no trouble will be experi enced On the other hand If the ground is so hard that top resistance is less than that below no other result must be expected than that the roots will come up and the trunk buttresses widely because it cannot go down therefore it must grow sidewise
