Washington.—Increases in internal
taxation rather than issuance of bonds
jto meet the first year’s expenses ofj
the administration’s defense program'
are advocated by Secretary MeAdeo
of the treasury in a formal statement!
issued Friday giving an estimate of,
the federal government’s revenues and1
expenditures up to the end of the fis-
cal year, beginning next July.
Assuming that congress will con-
tinue in effect the present emergency
tax law and customs duty on sugar,
the secretary estimates that $112,806,-
394 in additional revenue will be need-
ed for the expenditures for 1917, in-
cluding $93,800,000 for new measures
for national defense.
“This amount,” says the statement,,
“easily can be raised by internal tax-,
ation without appreciable burdens
upon the American people.”
Mr. McAdoo suggests a reduction in*
the income tax law exemption on sin-;
gle/persons from $3000 to $2000 and;
,on married persons ^from $4000 to'
$3000; changes in the surtax imposed
on incomes above a certain figures;;
and new taxes on gasoline, crude and
refined oils, horsepower of automo-
biles, other internal combustion en-
gines and various other things.
The statement follows:
“The question of the national fi-
nances is so intimately related to
other vital problems which must be
settled in the interest of the American
people that every right-minded citizen
should want the truth in order that
he may help form that intelligent pub-
lic opinion out of which alone can
arise sound and just conclusions. With,
this in mind I desire to submit to the
public the following information:
“We began the fiscal year 1916 (July
1, 1915) with a general fund balance
not including amounts to the credit
of disbursing officers of $104,170,105.
Compared with the balance shown in
the daily treasury statement on June
30, 1915, this is composed of the fol-
lowing: Balance in general fund June
30; 1915, as per treasury daily state-
ment, $82,025,716. Add national bank
note redemption fund, which, by laws
is a part of the public ,debt, and not
to be set up as a liability of the gen-
eral fund, $19,390,345. Add cash de-
posits during the year 1915 and in-
cluded in the revised totals, advices of
which were received at the treasury
after June 30, 1915, $2,754,044. Bal-
ance in general fund June 30, 1915 (re-
vised basis), $104,170,105.
“Under existing law the present
duty of 1 cent per pound on j*aw susrar
ceases May 1, 1916, and the present
emergency law expires on December
31, 1915. Assuming that these two
sources of revenue are eliminated,
the following results may be expected
for the fiscal year 1916:
“General fund balance in. the treas-
ury July 1, 1915, as already' shown,
“The estimated total receipts for
1915 are $670,365,500.
“Total estimated disbursements for
1916, excluding Panama canpl pay-
“Surplus or balance June 30, 1916,
$57,644,605. ' ■ 1
“The duty on sugar and the emer-
gency revenue taxes ought to be con-
tinued. If this is done the additional
receipts from these source^ for the
fiscal year 1916 should be ($41,000,000
from emergency taxes and $15,000,000
from sugar), $56,000,000.
Said She Would Turn Blind and
Fall When Nervous Spells Came
on, Yet Remained Conscious.
OdeBsa, Fla.—“About 2 years ago,”
writes Mrs. J. D. Powell, of this place,
"I took several bottles of Cardui as a
tonic, for I was run down in health.
In fact I could hardly do anything at
all, could only drag around and
couldn’t do my work. Life was miser-
able to me and I knew I must have
some relief, as I was so very weak. I
would suffer with aching pains in my
right Bide, back and shoulders. I
would have such terrible nervous
spells, which would come on me, and
I’d fall down wherever I was stand-
ing. I would turn blind, as though I
had fainted yet kept my consciousness.
My friends would rub me..., circula-
tion was extremely poor, and the arms,
hands and limbs would be cold.
“My friends... recommended that I
try Cardui. ... I began using it and
soon both saw aAd felt a great im-
provement. ... My appetite became
good. I ate so my husband teased me
about it. I could rest, well at night,
and got so I could do all my housework
in a short time. ... I praise Cardui
to all my friends.”
If you suffer from any form of wom-
anly weakness or Irregularity, try
Cardui, the woman’s tonic. For sale

Watching the Seals.
Visitors at the Aquqrium never tire
of watching, the harbor seals, and one
thing that pleases them particularly
is to see the seals fall off their table
when they go to sleep. In the middle
of the pool for the seals there are two
low tables, their tops are just above
the water, on which the seals climb
out to sleep or to rest. And some-
times one or another of the seals will
climb out of the water to one of those
tables and lie there on it, maybe close
along the edge of one side and per-
haps with its head and forward part
of its body hanging over the edge of
the table in front, apparently all the
time in imminent danger of rolling off
the table at the side or of pitching
off head first into the water in front.
And when a seal lies on a table like
that, sleeping or dozing, people stand
around the pool watching and waiting
for the seal to fall off. He won’t hurt
himself when he does fall, he will sim-
ply fall off into the water; but old and
young men. women and children, will
stand there with keen interest silent-
ly watching and waiting for that seal
’vo Tali. Ahii n they stay 'long' enough,
as they are pretty sure to do, they are
rewarded'.—New York Times.
Austin, Tex,—The state department
of agriculture will soon instruct ttB
field agents to Include in their lec-
tures Instructions to the farmers on
how to exterminate coyotes, wildcats,
wolves, rats and other pests, wh.‘ch do
a great deal of damage to crops and
stock annually. Bulletins are being
prepared by the department telling of
the -various modes of baiting traps
and spreading poison to accomplish
The department, under its various
heads, expects to conduct some experi-
ments in WeBt Texas on the extermi-
nation of the animals, after which a
convention of the various commission-
ers courts, county officials and per-
sons interested in the work will be
called, and a sweeping campaign made
toward the extermination of all pests.
It has been pointed out that random
killing of animals does not do much
good, and unless concerted action is
had among t£e farmers and stockmen
nothing can be accomplished.
It’ is qlso known that the Texas
Sheep and Goat Raisers’ Association is
endeavoring to enlist the federal gov-
ernment, with its seventy-eight field
agents in Texas, to also instruct the
rurdl communities on the amount of
damage done by wolves and other
ravenous animals, and the best meth-
od to follow in their extermination.
Statistics from the controller’s office
show that from Sept. 1, 1912, to April
1, 1914, $99,987 has been expended by
the state in the payment of bounties
for f the killing of various animals.
This was approximately all of the
$100,000 appropriated for this purpose
by the legislature. The special ses-
sion of the thirty-fourth legislature ap-
propriated another $100,000 for this
purpose. About $60,000 is the balance
to the credit of this fund at the pres-
ent time. Under the law, the state
pays but three-quarters of the bounty.
The summary of wild animals killed
in 175 counties of the state from Sep-
tember, 1912, to April, 1914, shows
that during this time 8,592 lobo, gray
and timber wolves were killed; 68,267
coyptes, 21,665 wildcats, 10 Mexican
ions, 53 panthers and 22 leopards.
Caused by Disease of the Kidneys
The close connection which exists
between the heart and the kidneys is
well known nowadays. As soon as
kidneys are diseased, arterial tension
la increased and the heart functions
are attacked. When the kidneys no
longer pour forth waste, uremic poi-
soning occurs, and the person dies and
the cause is often given as heart dis-
ease, or disease of brain or lungs.
It is a good insurance against such a
risk to send 10 cents for a large trial
package of “Anuric”—the latest dis-
covery of Dr. Pierce. Also send a
sample of your water. This will be
examined without charge by expert
chemists at Dr. Pierce’s Invalids’ Ho-
tel, Buffalo, N. Y. When you suffer

ing, it’s time to write Dr. Pierce, de-
scribe your symptoms and get his
medical opinion, without charge—ab*
solutely free. This “Anuric” of Dr.
Pierce’s is 37 times more active than
lithia, for it dissolves uric acid in th»

WONDERFUL HOW QUICKLY
RESINOL STOPS ITCHING
To those who have endured for years
the itching torments of eczema or other
such skin-eruptions, the relief that
the first use of resinol ointment and
resinol soap gives is perfectly incredi-
ble. After all the suffering they went
through and all the useless treatments
they spent good money for, they
cannot believe anything so simple,
mild and inexpensive can stop the
itching and burning INSTANTLY!
And;they find it still more wonderful
that the improvement is permanent
and that resinol really drives away
the eruption completely in a very
short time. Perhaps there is a peas-
ant surprise like this in store for you.

Treasure for Antiquarians.
In a recent issue of the Loudon
Times announcement is made of the
discovery at Caervoran, on the Roman
wall, three miles east of Gilsland, in
Northumberland, of a remarkable
bronze measure of the Roman period.
Such officially certified measures are
very rare. On the present specimen
the name of Emperor Domitian, in
whose consulate .in A. D. 29 the meas-
ure was tested, has been obliterated,
owing to the hatred felt toward him
after his death. The measure con-
tains sectarii, about thirty pounds
of wine, or rather more than two gal-
lons, and eight pounds have been al-
lowed as the weight of the material.
Professor Haverfield is uncertain
whether it was really certified under
the order of the emperor, or whether
it is a private venture, masquerading
as official, in any case, there is no
question of the date, and the discovery
is of considerable antiquarian interest.1
