to Mr. Slielley these soldiers seldom
have money. Uncle Sam has been
taking care of them and it is hard

thrown out upon the world.

ciation of the comforts shown them.

tailorwork is the best feature of a garment. It is the factor that brings out the lines desired and puts the
:.i service into the suit or dress or wrap. A Schleisner garment is a work of the artist-tailor. A piece of fabric ...
may or may not be developed into an artistic creation. The idea to do the work may be the incentive —but only a|j
if real tailor can put the correct lines into the garment. The designing of a suit is one thing, the tailor work another.
„ Both are needed for a Schleisner garment. The result is dignified fashion.

Owner of Canine Claims Tax
I'nconstitution, but Justice
Orders Him to Pay
Diuicannon, Pa., April 4.—"Pups '
are pups." Squire Charles Houck, of j
Miller township, ruled in the case |
of Howard Baker, of Wheatfield |
township, who was brought before
him on the charge of refusing to pay
his dog license tax.
The tax on canines is unconsti
tutional, Baker is declared to have
asserted emphatically, and then
I stoutly to have refused to pay the
tax. He was arrested later by Con- i
stable Benjamin Sheafi'er and taken
before the Miller township magis
Squire Houck, continuing his rul
ing, said that while a dog comes un
der the head of personal property
and should have a value placed on it
that the proper amount of tax might
be determined as is done in the
case of a horse or cow, the legis
lators in framing the enactment fail
ed to discriminate "between a good
and a bad pup."
"According to the orders of the
county commissioners and the facts
developing in the test case, "he said,
" 'pups are pups' whether you paid
five or fifty for the one you own." j
Baker was ordered to pay a license j
tax and the costs of prosecution.
