Hundreds of "window" letters do not show tho address through the aperture, they claim, and the envelopes wtih holes' to show tho address are torn and catch other letters while passing through the stamp-cancelling machines. Up the Spout SMUGGLING To the Editor of The Herald. A Magistrate in Benthelm. Hanover, , Germany, recently imposed a small J fine on a man for smuggling butter and margarine. He stated that he was compelled to impose- a "fine" but was not obliged to demand the surrender of the smuggled goods; and would not do so. He said that smuggled goods "harmed" nobody and therefore could he considered as trade in the genera! interest. Now, -Mr. Editor, every person of common sense, must surely endorse �that judgment and that remark of the German Magistrate, for trade is a "good" thing. It is in the general interest and welfare and therefore, laws that hinder trade are criminal in themselves and there is often more virtue in the breaking of such laws than in their observance. The farmers in Lethbridge district are reported to have paid $00,000 duty this season, on tractors brought Into Canada. Now, bringing a tractor into Canada is a "positive good." It is an increase of wealth in Canada. It is a very great help to labor in the production of "more" wealth and the production of more wealth means more" business for our merchants, railroads, express companies. It means "more crops" produced, "more labor" for harvest hands, threshers, "more" threshers needed, "more" labor for those who manufacture threshers twine, and many other things that "more crop" demands. So, if a man needs a tractor, hin smuggling one in would be a positive "good" to hundreds of other people. On the start, tho duty or tax or "graft" for eastern manufacturers he would get out of paying, he coula spend to advantage for lumber, hardware or household needs of which there aro so many. So, it Is easily seen that our government makes virtue a crime? And that custom houses, restrictions on trade, and other impediments to production and increase of wealth, are simply "relics of barbarism" Yours for a better day, when all custom houseB will be abolished forever, W. T>. LAMB. ELCAN MAN IS "So it's all up with your engagement to Kitty." "Yes." , "What's become of the engagement ring?" "That'b up, too."
