"As Assistant Secretary and Treasurer, I had charge of the books and made reports monthly, which were "published in the official organ of the Institute, The 1 Medical Mission Herald.

John Grcirton Calls Attention to It» Practicability— I^cry on land Talncd the K»y to Fre* X*nd »nd Free l*bor. . The single tax is a proposition to raise all revenue for national, state and town purposes by a levy upon land values only. Most men who hear of it for the first time think it impracticable, and, in the second place^ think It ft tax on land. Aa to the first objection, the answer is that the single tax is already in operation ns far as its collection goes. It is raised every year and paid over every year by land -users to landowners. Being in practice already, it is not impracticable, for it is not n, tax on land, but ori land values. An acre of land on a city street has a value of $1,000,000. All tho loud of a country town, moro than 180,000 acres, is not worth as much. There is nothing tions for the annual picnic,', August.28, were passed and "ill be presented to Union Garrison, Hock Falls, this even- ng. Sir Knights J. L. Jahssen, S. J. Harvey and Cuss l)uvis were appointed a committee to confer with a simi- ar committee from Union Garrisoain egard to the annual picnic and devise plans of preparation. ' ' Several applications for membership were received and referred to committees and the first three ranks were con" ferred upon Earl Hallett. It was found necessary to call another special meeting to confer ranks on next Monday night, The garrison is in a flourishing condition. J. L. Jansaen has been appointed Acting Adjutant General to assist the special representative of.the Supreme Council in installing J,henew7Qfliceraatr the first regular meeting in April. A delegation from the Sterling and EockFallBgarrisons will this week visit the order's headquarters for the pur,- pose of talking over the coming picnic in'August and holding a consultation reg_arding other important matters. street will actually yield annually a greater net return than all tho land in tho country town does to all the farmers there. In both cases,- however, the men who uso tho land pay its annual valuo to tho men who own it. The single tax -would simply bo a change in' practice. Under the single tax tho men who uso tho land would pay its annual valno into'tho public treasury aud pay no other taxes. Tho men who own tho land would get what they earn as landowners or landlords. That is Nothing, with a big N. Land ia one thing, but land 'Valno is another thing. Tho man who does not understand this will never make money as a landlord. Being already in practice, tho single tax is not impracticable.

It would seem as if there must be come way ; in which, In fi country, so barren of population that an eagle flying over it hardly sees the cultivated spots, a good fellow, willing to work 835 days in tho year, might bo able to produce bread enough to keep him in the world.

THE FAMINE IN INDIA THE RESULT OF CREEP. Probably most famines in the world aro caused by greed. Wo havo all been mourning over tho largo loss of lifo iu India, and most of us imagining that it waa altogether duo to short crops. But there is another and justcr view of the matter. Tho British government demonetized silver in India. This reduced the circulating medium, increased tho valuo of money and decreased tho value of commodities. Tho British government is expensive. They rule India and charge as much 'ns they can for tho service. They collect annually $100,000,000 in taxes. '. In a country wheron man earns from 8 to 8 cents per day this is a grievous burden. At 5 .cents a day it takes 2^000,000, OOp days'toil to corn FAVORITE PLACES FOR INVESTMENTS AND FOB HOWES. ' Eloctrrc MRhtii — Permanent Stdewftttcs— 8ewern-Chut*!s<J» - School*.

But ho saw these natural opportunities gradually, close as tho Mexican land grants wero'deter- mined and settled in American courts and the diggings gavo out, and before he left California tho man who could not find work there was just as poor and just as hopeless as tho tramp is every•where—hot because there was nothing to bo done there, but laud was monopolized and he.ld out of use. And now, in _this_magnificenb- country, well, called God's country by those who dwell there, there is a fanning community no better off as a general thing than our New England farmers—no roads t6 speak of and'schools no better than they should be. Henry George asked the reason for this, and. being an honest seeker, found an honest answer,, according to the promise, '' Seek and ye shall find,'' Ho did not invent the single tax. But ho discovered it just as truly as Columbus discovered America and as Newton demonstrated tho law of gravitation. He proposed tho single tax as a remedy for tho existence of poverty in the- presence of tho greatest natural abun-- dance, not to concentrate all taxes bu real estate, for to tax real estate means to tax improvements, and to tax improvements, the product of labor, is only another way to tax labor, to fine men for working. .A tax on improvements will rest upon tho user of laud, not upon its owner. Mr. George's idea is to tax land values only, for laud values arise in the. natural difference in returns which one piece of land will yield over another to the same application of labor and capital. Such difference in returns does not come out of labor or capital, br^tfrom the land itself. It is a site value, it exists in tho nature of things, and it is paid annually to the owner of the land. The operation of this law is no more to bo escaped than the operation of the law of gravitatign, and to take this annual site value for all public purposes will mokjp laud free and la-' bor free, a thing the poor old world has not seen so far in its history;. a practicable thing, working wrong to no man; a vision destined to take shape in just laws. SOME INTERESTING TOPICS FOR , FARMERS. The following suggestions by a practical man are valuable as calling attention to a very vital issue among farmers.., To mako famiiug generally profitable is to solve the labor cmesioii: Would it not be possible for soiae in- tc'.lligyjufc cultivator of tho laud to make it littloluMatlbook of popular instruction •wh.K& should tell a strong JBWI of 85, vs/ho has good fewaitb, luw tuuscle s»nd is a prevailing favoritism! What is true of this city is quite pr/obably true of others. .The gradual increase of the 'Bolaribsof officers is an evil, as it tends toward extravagance in governnJent', and extravagance is tyranny on the one band and poverty on 'the other; for it Is not money, but hard toil -that finally pays all the bills. The sending of ,a few poor mission- aries.will hardly suffice .for this great waste of life. . ""SOME.-UNWISE LEGISLATION. The action of some fltatejegisjatures toward criminal labor* is certainly not wise, and the greed and hardness that have secured such action are surely anything but assuring. If our criminals are to be kept idle, insanity awaits many of them, and it would be equally as culpable to leave the sick without phy- .sicians and nurses. The Reeling is BO strong against prison'labor that it will control our legislatures for some years. 'In. the meantime something must be done to improve prisoners. Let them be provided with teachers and books and appliances for mechanical training. This will utilize a part of their time. Then the rest of each day could be given to making such articles as could bo disposed of at very low prices to the poor of the state in which the work was done. Every year tho cities aro called upon to raise large sums to supply the needs of the indigent. Why not let the labor of the prisoners go to meet this need? This would scarcely affect the markets, and, dh the other hand, would go toward relieving a burden that is felt very much by the toilers. ^ WHY LEGISLATURES ARE; BECOMING ODIOUS. There is nothing like a little patience. Just while the hungry and idle world is impatient for something to be done a feW Indiana legislators Ijave come to the rescue, and everything will soon bo booming. They have formulated over 000" bills. "Among the number two are noteworthy, one requiring hotel proprietors to publish the names of their dishes iu plain English and another requiring the schools to teach that a circle is 8.2, instead of 8.141 Ox larger than a diameter. TJtiis last bill is offered, to saVo time. Of cqurso accuracy is nothing and arithmetical principles may be modified at anytime by a littjo legislation., Why not legislate that all counting bo done by tens and that such lesser numbers its, $,' 7, etc., bo abolished? It would save much time. A Missouri solon wants a law passed in tautHtateprohibifing rail- rodd conductors, porters, etc.» from talk- ijug with Ittdy pasi?ciigerd.
