Twenty years ago, with price and .income levels no lowur, if as low as they are now, Hit expenditure was only ¥-^-' r 'U 1'ei' capil;t, than ime-lonrtii what it is now. In 1913 public expenditures repve- sentcd ti.-l iK-T cent ol' the total national income. l!y 102S the proportion had tfi'own to l-l iiev cent, and today, with the national income minted by de- 1 prossion, il is estimated Unit, appraxi- .inately i!0 per cent of it goes I'm- government purposes. These lijfUTcs life particularly ilis- turbiiijr because the great increit-c hits in fctleval and slate expenditures rather tlitiu in local expenditures which are subject to fairly direct control by tlic tiixpiiyevs. The eiist of federal government has risen -17;! per cent .since 1913, state expenditures have increased Ii7'l per cent, and local expenditures 268 per cent. A large part of the increase in fed- end expenditures is accounted for by the debts and expenses occasioned by the world war, bill oven'making allow- aifce'tfoy thc'cosi of Die war if is obvious that there has jirmvrt up in this country a governmental organization that is entirely out of proportion lo the wealth of the country. Now most of the taxes levit-d for the support of the federal government, and many of those that provide the funds for state expenditures, fall directly upon a very small part of thu population, liecatisx 1 most of us have not been heavily taxed for I' and state purposes wo Imvc insistently and continually demanded new federal and state services, and new and enlarged forms of state and federal aid for local purposes, not realizing', or forgetting, that ihe economic burden of indirect taxation is every bit as great, as that of direct taxation. <•' ~ 1'iVevy cili/.en owes it lo himself to oppose all new forms of indirect slide, and national taxation. We must find our «:lv;'.Hon in .netting back to local self government. Tlio money lliat we raise and spend locally is at least in a measure subject lo local control. \Ve can gauge our local ex]>eitdiliire.s in some degree by our ability In pay, and abuvu all we can see what we gel fur our money. Lei's rid ourselves of Ihe ridiculous notion that we get something for nothing when we receive le.i- eral or stale aid. Usually when we do that we are simply shouldering burdens lo which we would not consent if we had to pay directly Hie cost which .we pay indirectly anyway. \VBDNESDAV,_MAjlCn 2, An Encouraging Sign One encouraging sign in the inid.-l oi hard times is noted by the Magu/.ine (.>i' Wall Street in its current issue, when il points nut that during .January more new business enterprises were begun i" New York state llian in any other single month in the past two years. This indicates thai an increasiai: number, of people are gaining conli- duice that the worst is over ami that the long upward pull is lie^imuug. More ini|:orlanl, perhaps, us the magazine points out, it also indicates that ai) increasing number of jobless people are finding it possible to adapt themselves c lo changed conditions and ;ire >elling out to make a living on their own hook.

Manufacturers and merchants must know your needs and wants, or go out of business. They must know, for instance, that about the first of next month you'll be very much interested in a new hat, or a new lamp, or new towels. They must foresee your wishes—and have what you'll want when you want it, And they do—constantly striving to suit, at the lowest possible prices. Then telling you in advertising of the gifts they have brought from the far corners of the earth, to please Your Royal Highness. Read the advertisements in this paper. They are «MTV«>addressed to you—personally. They bring you news «.*••»• of better things to have and easier ways to live. Intimate news, of immediate interest.
