'Simply because there is no such thing Jn the centre of this growing industry the manufacture of the flax straw other uses it may be put, or even for the preparation of the straw for these various uses, known under the tech- nical' name ofs "scutching." Here is Lethbridge's opportunity for .getting one of its much desired and much sought after manufactories. The is present in abundance, of transportation to the .factory and for 'want of the 'same material which could be turned into thousands of dollars are consign- ed" to tbe flames.

Of all the manu- factories to which Lethbridge is adapted that of dealing with the pro- dnct-of flax straw stands out pre- eminent. The growing of ihe plant for- the seed itself is a valuable in- dustry and how much more so will the industry become if all parts of the growth can be utilized.

Taxing the Millionaires ANDREW CARNEGIE, his made his millions, and having done so the subject of the same is evidently giving him cause for some thought. He now comes forward ad- vocating the taxing of the incomes of millionaires. Tiie ia except in the source of origin, and coming from a millionaire it is more worthy of consideration than were it to issue from tho brains of any of the vast majority who form the class of non-millionaires, a suspicion "of pre- judice being removed. So far as the millionaires of Can- ada ami the United States are con- cerned he makes Adam Smith's prin- ciple form a strong line of argument. That every subject should contribute to the support of the government in proportion to the income lie enjoys Wilder the perfection of the state is particularly applicable to those coun- tries wberi protection may he inter- preted in Its tariff sense. Here the "Interests" -which, have be- come rich through the system may fairly be taxed for the benefit of the nation at Of all taxes' Income has come to be regarded as the most Iniquitous In that in countries where it ia iii general use it' fakes the form of tax- Ing a man "on the product of his in- duatry, brain and energy. This has .come to be perceived by up-to-date legislators' in Great Britain and much has' been done In removing the burd- en from thoie least adapted to hear it and transferring it in the way of a BUper-tax on the incomes of nailiion- -VwUG'rOf-Incomes exempt from taxation has been increased and a sliding scale adopted. This is in line with a democratic trend of legis- lation. t ".In a it cannot be said that the institution of an income tax on a general scale would be a good thing, particularly where the majority have to depend on their own energy and enterprise. Without styling It class legislation it would appear rca- sona'ble that millionaires should he subject to an income lax not as a punitive measure, but if such a tax would be the means of relieving the pressure of taxes on those least able to bear them. But so far as Canada .la- considered, there being no such thing as taxation, there does not appear any reason at present at any rate, -for encroaching on the incomes of millionaires ns a means of' revenue. In the years to come j when new, needs arise there may Canadian millionaires need haye no apprehensions.

Has Served His Purpose (Jfontreal Witness) No more appreciative headlines in the Conservative press when Mr.- Bourassa is (mentioned! No more misty phrases about a common basis for the imperial .idea! No more cer- tificates of his loyalty in every paper ami on every platform from Ontario to the Pacific Coast contrasted base and baseless insinuations against that of Sir Wilfrid Laurier. The time has come, in accordance with the "not ery creditable- schoolboy phrase, to cry: "Kick him out; he has no friends." Tlioso elected to parlia- ment on the cries started by him and selected as mlniaters.ns representing the government's Quebec allies have forsaken him and gone over to the navy. Now.Mr. Bourassa is told he must stop playing in the Conservative, backyard, lest; the neighbors should think he was in the hahit of doing so. Never was a political alliance between two parties more complete. Never was a marriage more openly solem- nized. Yet now the principle of Ne Temere is, invoked and we are_ told that there never was anything, but civility between them. What is cer- tain Is that there is, in some quarters, no civi.liiy now. The Possibilities of Honesty Louis D. Brandcis was discussing tho' methods of certain corporations which had been mentioned as inclin- ed to do business in a shady manner. Then ho told this" story: "And now, :ny said the hank president, "this is your birthday, and you are about to begin your business life. There a-re ahead of yon tremen dous possibilities. After sizing you up .1 am convinced that you will be a shining success. And I alwajs yon to remember that honesty is.the best policy, no matter what you may undertake." "Yes agreed the young man respectfully. "And, by the added the father in a spirit of kindness, 'M suggest that you devote a few months to the study of corporation law. H will amaze vou to discover how many things you can do in a. business way and still be Maga- zine. How Bryan Won His Wife After William Jennings Bryan had courted the beautiful Mary Baird for what he considered a sufficient length of time, the Commoner, then a strug- gling young lawyer, concluded to put the vital question to the father of. the future Mrs. Bryan. after finally downing the lump in his throat sought refuge in the scriptures. "Mr. Baird, I have been reading Proverbs a good deal said Mr. Bryan, "and I find that Solomon says: 'Who ftndeth a wife flndeth a good thing and obtaineth the favor of the Lord.' Father Balrdi being somewhat of a Bible scholar himself, replied: "Yes, I believe Solomon did say that, but Paul suggests that, while he that mar- rleth doeth well, he that marrieth not dooth better." Bryan, 'who never has been at a loss for an answer in his spectacular li.'e, quickly said: "Solomon would be the host authority upon this ".point, because Paul was never married, while Solomon had a number of wives."
