The "• governor scorns to bo of the opinion that the ^les tax is dead, as appdiontlj it is, but it is-«• little difficult tc ^ee where he finds basis for his appaient ahbumption that the people of Arkansas will regard his program as a satisfactory substitute. If it is> not ab bad ab tliu sales tax-it is at leakt .subject to most of the .same objections and to honjo additional ones, e lace gambling has been le- in uilh the promise that it vu'l pioducu upwards of $150,000 in btatc levctwc It seems certain that Junior will be legalized, ami that will imiiLsh anothei $1,000,00.0 or so. No (bubt llieie aic \\ortliy piu-iioses to which p,000,000 or $10;000,000 moie might be devoted But a worthy pmpose does not justify a bad tax. And c\en the most desirable of public expenditui et> must be kept within the reasonable mcaiib of the people \vho must pay WhattA'oj one may think of horse rate gambling and hiiwn it is at least , true that taxej> on them hit nobody but ' the lellow who is, willing and- presumably able to pay them./But electricity, which would iiunish the bulk of the 53,000,000 the governor asks, is one of the common necessities of life in the tovuis and cities and to an mcteabing extent in the rural districts. x And it .soft dinks aie not a. necessity of life they aie at leabt a poor man's luxury Goveinoi Futiell was elected oil n platwim moimse the state would live within its income The voters uii- ilcistood to mean that expenditures would be ait to ht revenues, not that levenuci, would be expanded to meet mc> easing expenditures.. Horse lacing and liquor will furnish' over • 51,000,000 in new btate income. How- can Iho govetnoi convince the people of this »tate that he is .justified in asking anothei §8,000,000? But e\on a^ummg that the need for the 83,000,000 ib imperative, is there jtibtilication foi the new taxes .which the governor propose^,? We Uiink not, not only because Uiey seem to 1 us to be bad taxes but also because theie is> much icason to believe that a full Jihs'obsment and collection of exist-. ing taxee would provide Uie money. Kcp. Louis K. Buci-kle of Stutlgart han a bill which he .says would raise peibonal inopeity assessment in Ar- kansai at least $50,000,000 without incri'nsing the assessments of those who are already paying a fair tax oil •wliat they own. Rep. Charles If. Killian, of Drew county, has a real prop. . erty assessment bill which he says would render a sales tax "absolutely unnecessary"—ami without adding to the burden of those who are already paying fair taxes 'on their property. If • the stale is suffering from lack of adequate revenue certainly a remedy should first be sought in endiiif; evasion of existing taxes. Speaking Out Against the Sedition Bill .•nejirsMnlalivi!

DIB Bt'arred clicek got to his feet, lie b-aid, "i'ollow workers—" His voice droned on Cor halt an hour. • • • TT was the following afternoon. Gnlc tilted Hie umbrella against tfie wind and walked moro rapidly. She didn't mind tlio rain; she rather liked it. It smolled fresh and clean and spring-like. Almost any other evening she would have enjoyed the walk to the drug store. It was a long walk—10 blacks in a neighborhood that was almost deserted. That was why Gale was hurrying. She wanted to get home before darkness settled down: the sky would darken early on account of the rain. "It I'd only thought to toll Pliil—!" Gale scolded herself. Phil could have taken the prescription for her father's medicine to he rclilled. Uut she had for- KOttcn and the bottle of medicine was empty. Mary Cassuly was cooking the Hendersons' evening meal, so that Gale was able tp slip away on the errand. Mary, was trying so hard to be helpful. And she had bcou helpful, too. In a house JIary knew exactly what to do and how Io do it. Gale thought, "Slio ought not to work in a mill. She ought to be home, taking care ot those children." Well. Alary wasn't working In the mill now— Mary's troubles, .during the last few days,' had made Gale think niiK'h less about her own." Alary wasn't much older than Gale, but she looked years older. Aioiie in the world except for two helpless us? children—without mouey. without work, without anything to 1'he look forward to except a struggle that would grow, harder as u'nic went on". Where was Eld Cassldy, Mary's husband? .Why wasn't he there to help hcr'C ; ' ''..[, No ono In town know what had become of Sid. Mary never mentioned him. It bad been more than two years eluce his sudden disappearance. Gale thought, "I suppose Mary was In love with Sid once—or thought she was." Hard to imagine lircd, care-worn Mary as a moon-struck young thing, uliiBh- Ing. sighing, primping In front ol a mirror before a dale. Hard to reconcile that picture with Mary IIB sho looked today. Gale put the thought from her., She didn't want to think about love. That was something eho was tliroui-h with. Sho had come to a brighter dls- tnct. The drug store was just a few steps ahead. "Sclionobaunrs Briig store," the sign read. There . was a display of small articles— shaving cream, tootli paste, hair tonic—in the window and behind Ihcra a brighlly printed poster showing a pretty girl in a -red dress, holding a 6 lass oE some beverage. Schonebauiu's vvng a small place but the proprietor was friendly. He would let Gale havo the medicine and wait until next week for tlie money. » » * CUB lowered her umbrella and ^ 'pulled the door open There was no one in sight but a yoiui" man who wan Inspecting somc- thins iusido the glasa counter. Ho wore a. trench raincoat and ;i brown hat. Even before lie turned, Gale recognized that raincoat. It was Brian Wcstmoro'a! There was no time to do anything except stand there, feeling her heart pound wildly, knowing the color bad risen in her cheeks. Brian looked surprised, loo. He said, "Hello," and then, a moment later, "Tho proprietor seems to have gone out." Tlio sloro looked strange with-' out Mr. Schouebautn with his round, red face and shiny, uahl head, lie should have been behind Hie counter, peering at them over (he rims ot his spectacles, clearing his throat and sayius, "Ahem—what can I do for you'!"/ No, Air. Scuoiiebauiii was no where in sight. Gale said, "1 wonder where he'a gone'.'" "I ilcu't suppose he cau be fur away," Brian went on. "He'll probably show up in a moment or t-.vo." • Galo caught Ja. glimpse of her- -, selt in the mirror behind iho counter and saw that her cheaka were shining. She tugged nt ii wisp of hair blown from boiie;itli . her bat, pushing it into place. Meeting Brian anywhere was bad enough. Meeting him like this, with her face red. her clothes wet and limp from tlio storm, was a culamily. They stood there, each waiting for the other to speak. Galo thought, "This is ridiculous. 1 won't slay any longer. I'll make an excuse and get away —anywhere." And yet sha lingered. . (To lie Continued) .uiy iige classinention.
