ractical Method ior Reducing
Taxation must become the tax
payer’s business I'here is no
way out for the taxpayer unless
ne is willing to make a special
effort to study taxes.
Families cannot be raised on
scenery. There must be p^v
rolls, raw materials, and Indus
try- All the money necessary
to do needful things must be ex
pended, but none of the taxpay-
ers’ money should be wasted.
Wastes and extravances must
not be tolerated. There can bt-
no excuse for the expenditure ot
public money for unnecessary
public service. Every dollar
.spent by government must yield
its true return of service..
Let the taxpayer who is inter
ested, in good government, in the
rights of private property, and
who wishes to see the state go
steadily forward without unduly
burdening its citizens, endeavor
to acquaint himself with the tax
situation in his state, county and
community, to the end that he
may be able to work with his
elected officers to promote an ef
ficient and economical govern
ment. Public officers must be
made to translate their promises
of economy into action and fact.

The Essence of Sound Government.
"Faith in the ability of the
people collectively to make sane
orderly plans for the future, is
the very essence of continued
national existence. We must
stop lurching back and forth
from one desired expenditure of
money to another, and like
grown men and women, learn to
stick to proportion and to plan,

Saturday Evening Post.
