manufacturers of proprietary articles, soaps, perfumery, chewing gum, etc., in the United States are required to aflix stamps in proportion to the retail price of their goods before offering them for sale, and the holders of stocks, whether wholesale or retail, are required to do the same, but there is a provision for a rebate on goods exported. The securing of this drawback will no doubt be attended with rigmarole, atsidavits, red tape, fees, loss of time, etc., that willin most cases eat up the return, and so many proprietors advise that they will sell in Canada at old prices, standing the cost of stamps themselves. Others say they will rebate the stamps, charging the expense of Consular and other fees, while the Cuticura people of Boston write • We do not rebate for stamps on any
