MARCH 20.1918 ] (Special to the Ilernlill Kdmonton, March 20.-tu \he aritiuni report df the public works department tabled In the leglslnfuro Tjiesday afternoon, it l3 shown that several important works Jiavo been completed durins tlio year, but much of the ordinary activity lins boen greatly handicapped by tlfe srnrclty of miUerials, the cost botli of materials and held and the scarcity of * sliilled labor. Deputy Mlni.ster Charlesworlh finds that the importance of j-oad maintenance is becoming; more and more apprecintod by local autliorities. He finds also that the interest of tJte A'arious automobile clubs is very helpful to the department as their organ-izations were of material assistance in reporting on road conditions iti many parts of the country. He commends the efforts of the V. V. A., the muni-l men and -women today know that it is needless to have a bad etomach. A little Diapepsin occasion-ftlly keeps this delicate organ regulated and they eat their favorite fooda without fear. If your stomach doesn't take caro ot your liberal limit -without rebellion; If your food is a damage instead ot a help, remeinber the quickest, surest, most' harmless relief is Pipe's Dia- (luainted. \ "AU one has Jo do. to arrive nt this opinion," said Xlr, Allan, "is to con-.sider the ta.\ burden ot the wav, U Is not going to cease at the end of the war. And in my opinion, the income tax is the fairest* means yet devised to meet the burden. Each man pays acr cording to his ability." - Mr. Allan Is the l)Usiest man eix brainds of staunch, well* 'fitting FTubbersV sold; by the leading shoemen: ' "Jscqoes C�i^' ^ ^etehanU" 'Granby'" , "Maple UaP' ."Daisy" Ask for these bMr^i'-they give tkeb?st wear CanaidianConso] , Rubber Co., Limited .

CANNOT PROSECUTE IN NAME OF A RAGE Quebec, Mar, 20.-Judge Bclleau to. day ruled that an individual cannot prosecute before the court* in tho tmme of a whole race, an individual alleged to have attacked the race involved, in "dismissing the case ot Germain vs Hyun. Germain alleged that Ryan, had attacked the Freach-Canji-dia'uB. Farmers' Problem Jfr. .-Mian stated that the greatest difficulty was with ihe farmers. Most of' them do not keep books and have but a hazy fdfa of their income and outlay. However, a simplified form of rpturn lor farmers has been prepared, and the totals of this .when transferred to the regular fonn for the return of individuals simplifies matters materially. Tbe new form'is one prepared by -Mr. Allan himself and adopted by the government. He had only a few of the forms with him but stated that' .i large number would .be at the Board ot Trade here toiuorrow, and also at the post orfico while branches of chartered banks will also be provided with them. The distribution ot all forms has now been arranged for. All post_ptfices handling money orders will~" have them. All branches ot chartered banks will be suppllei^. the board of trade here has a supply, or aiiyone can be provi.ded-with what .forms- they need by writing the inspector of taxation, Calgary. With " regard to i some questions which the Herald has been asked.and, which we�e asked in Tuesday's issue, Mr, Allan*stated definitely that the cheque should not accompany the return. A letter will be mailed each man who comes under the act setting forth the assessment on the return made by him, and the cheque should then be mailed. With regard to the farmer who held over his .wheat from 1916, and sold It In 1917, the whole return from the wheat does not .cou,nt as his income for 1917, but any advance In prlc^ be tween December 3lBt, 1910 and the date on which it was sold in 1917 must be counted as income. It was ti gain which represented part ot his income for 1917. . , r Land Deals The Herald also asked this question: A man bought a piece of land In 1916. Ha cultivated It' and. cropped It in 1917. In 'the fall, of 1917 ho sold the land at an advance, /s the profit ho made on the deal a part of his In-conie in 1917? Mr. vAUan answers "Yes.* But if he sold the. land at a loss, the man wotild' not have a right to'deduct the loss on the land deal from Uis Income for 1917.
