C.--The two- wheeled cart became the standard vehicle of England because, for many years, a wheel tax was imposed. Everv owner of a vehicle had to pay a stipulated stipulated tax on every wheel he possessed. The huge farm wain with two great wheels was the result. The post- chaise, the gig, and a number of other types of two-wheeled passenger vehicles vehicles evolved. Similar taxes on the continent had similar effects. When, at length, the wheel tax was repealed, the country immediately turned to four-wheeled vehicles. For a long time one of the most popular of these had no other name than that of "four-wheeler.'' That, was sufficiently sufficiently distinctive in sharp contrast to the old two-wheeled carts. Similarly, there was a window tax. The owner of a b u i l d i n g of any kind was assessed on each window. The result result was that for many years after the narrow slits, used for defensive archery, archery, had been outmoded from the military standpoint, English houses continued dark and poorly ventilated. Then that tax was repealed and the most profound change swept over English English architecture. The houses fairly blossomed out with windows and the j many-windowed Elizabethan style of | architectural design, as notably exemplified exemplified at Vernon-Harcourt. Blickling Blickling Hall, and other great country houses brought England its finest period. period. Boosts Wheelwrights' Work The volume of work for wheelwrights wheelwrights nearly doubled and the smiths had much more work as the direct result result of repeal of the wheel tax. The increase in employment as the result of repeal of the window tax cannot be calculated at this late date but it was far greater. Glaziers, stone-cutters, i lead workers, and other artisans were I in strong demand. There was a veri- ( poverty, table b u i l d i n g boom, so eager were the people for the s u n l i g h t and air. These apposite examples of the effect effect of t a x a t i o n are being discussed in connection with the e x t r a o r d i n a r y taxes now being levied on motor car j users.

His two pretty nieces, the Princesses Marina and Irene, listened with wide eyes and concentrated attention. Perhaps Perhaps he realized suddenly that they were taking him rather .seriously, considering considering that someday they would be on the list of eligible princesses to be married off. So he added hurriedly, "I must say, though, that many arranged arranged marriages turn out very well indeed!" The princesses sighed and pulled themselves back from 'their distant dreams. "Well, anyway, I should think love would be better." declared the long- egged, English-looking Marina w i t h an air of finality. Her cousin nodded solemn agreement and the issue was eft there. I sat in on that conversation several years ago in Rome where Prince Christopher, .former husband of the ate Mrs. W. B. Leeds of American tin- ilate fame, and f a v o r i t e as well as youngest uncle of his nieces, who call him Christo, often entertained as guests at his villa the y o u t h f u l daughters daughters of his brothers.
