The fnlerest Northern Republicans

tales have In federal lax legistatton Is

|tri)cing]y evidenced in a report Just

hsued by the obmmissloner of Inter-

»iil Revenue covering statistics of in-

>me and income lax n>r the calendar

rear I92i.

This report shows that eight Nortli-

•rn Republican states paid 75 per cent.

if the federal Income tax for the cal-

jidtr year 1921. The names of the

Mates together wHh the percentage of

the total federal income tax collected

irlthin their boundaries are as follows:

California, 5.06 per cent.; fjjllinois,

\y.S3 per cent.; Massachusetts. 6.4 7

)er cent.; Michigan, 3.36 per cent.;

lew Jersey, 4.62 per cent.; New York,

19.30 per cent.; Ohio, 4.67 per cent.;

Pennsylvania, 11.76 per cent.; total for

sight states, 74.77 per cent.

Of 15 states \Yhich contributed more

^han one per cent, of the total amount

If federal irfcome tax collected, only

|pne—Texas—can be classified ajt a

'Solid South" Democratic state.

iThe 12 Democratic states which lie

iih'of the Mason and Dixon line con-

jtributed only eight per cent, of the

Itotal amount of federal Income tax

:bllected for the year 1921. These

states are Alabama, Arkansas., Florida,

Georgia, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississ­

ippi, Ng;th Carolina, South Carolina,

[Tennessee Taxas, Virginia. Of these

i^Vlaryland contributed 2.03 per cent.

lof the total federal Incomes taxes paid

fdnd Texas 1.76 per cent.

With Texas and Maryland out the

f.other ."Solid South'' states only paid

14.39 per cent, of the total amount

[qt federal income Hx collected in

[1921. Yet the "Solid South" states

[form the backbone and the sinew of

[the Democratic party. When-the Demo-

;ratic party is in control of the Con-

•ss they are the states which control

Te committee in both houses of Con-

Pgress and which exercise a dominating

^influence over all tax legislation.

A little over 86 per cent, of those

[anaklng returns were of income classes

(between gi.ooo and 55,000. TJie larg-

iest number of return? were made by

the class reporting Incomes between

^l.poo and f2,ooo. The number of

return's'made'by this class was 2,440,-

544 or 36.63 per cent, of all returns.

Practically '5,000,000 returns were

made by "heads of families." Of this

lumber 3,477,592 were Joint returns

husbands and wives, 401,662 returns

Tf men only and 115,356 returns of

women only. Nearlp 609,000 women

without dependents made returns of

income in addition to the 115,356

who made returns as "heads of famil­

ies" which fumisbes ian interesting

commentary upon the number of wo­

men who are "making' iheir way In

the world."

The sources of income upon which

ta'xes -were paid showed that salaries

constituted 59.21 ptr cent, of the

sources. Dividends- furnished the

source of 10.62 per cent, of incomes

reported. Business profits were the

source of 10.14 per ceni. Interest

Land investment was the source of 7.24

per cent, of all incoues reported.

Dividing the incomes reported in

indther way it is shown that agricul­

tural and related industries furnish the

income for 9.69 per cent, of all those

reporting. Manufacturing industry fvir-

iiished income for 7.87 per cent. Trades

(which means commercial enterprises

such as retail stores) furnished the

source of 30 per cent, of the Incomes

reported and amusements, hotels and

the professions (such as law, medicine,

etc) were the source of 33.61 per

cent. Finance, banking, etc., furnished

only 4.08 per cent, of incomes re­

ported while the Inccmies from trans­

portation and public utilities furnished

only 2.16 per cent, of those making

report.

Turning to the table of wages and

salaries it Is ifhown that by far the

largest proportion of wages are paid

to those having salaries between 51,000

and $2,000. In the business or trade

division the largest group was thaj hav­

ing an income between 53,000 and

155,000. The s>econd largest was that

having an income between 52,000 and

53.000. The dividend income class were

a little more aristocratic. The largest

group in this class reported incomes

from 520,000 to 540,000 and the

second largest reported incomes of

150,000 to 520.000. The largest group

lof incomes from investment were of

le class having incomes from 53,000

55,000, All told the total number

[of returns for the year were 6,662,-

]i76 and the total amount of income

[reported by these returns was 5t9,-

|S77,212,528. The import goes Into

problems.

On Tuesday the members of the

Cecilian Society enjoyed a picnic at

^the home of Mrs. B. O. Nichols on

Dingle Ridge. A delicious lunch com-

ibined with out-al-doors amusements

made the occasion a social success.

jMlss Bettina Butler, daughter of Mr.

knd Mrs. T. M. Butler, of Croton Falls,

[wbo recently made her iehnx at Kisha-

aaa, was among the guests.

Foreign ships entering United States

ports may have and serve wine as

crew rations If the ship surgeon Is

willing to make aflldavit that the ra­

tion Is for medical purposes and his

action accords with the laws of his

own country.

In addition the new instructions per­

mit the use of wine for medicinal

purposes by passengers If the ships'

surgeons so prescribe and the Issuance

is provided for legally by countries to

which the ships belong.

With the approval of Secretary of

the Treasury Mellon public health

surgeons charged with approving ap-

plaictions for medicinal liquor have

been instructed by Surgeon General

Cumming to permit the full measure

of liqyor supplies on a vessel required

by the laws of Its own country and to

give ship surgeons^ull discretion as

to what liquors are^fceded for medi­

cinal use.

The Treasury instructions do not

affect beverage liquors but give wide

latitude In medical stores for crew

liquors. Surgeon General Cummlng's

letter of Instruction follows:

"Y.ou will advise the oilicers of the

United States Public Health Service at

the various ports that when officers or

authorities of any foreign merchant

vessel within the territori:tl waters of

the United States shall make applica­

tion for the privileges of using liquors

for medicinal purposes under the pro­

visions of T. D. 3484 (form l539) and

the laws of the country of the home

port of such vessel shall prescribe a

given quantity of liquor for medicinal

purposes, such quantity shall be al­

lowed by the United States Public

Health ofTicer in charge.

"All medical efforts charged with

Issuing certificates for the possession

or purchase of liquors for «hips (form

1539) will govern themselves accord­

ingly.

"Medical ofSters are expected to

familiarize themselves ,with the laws

of the various foreign countries bear­

ing on this subject, especially those

relating to medicinal allowances. They

are expected to give full consideration

to the profiesslonal opinions of the

ship's doctors, thus enabling them to

carry out-measures which they believe

to be necessary to preserve the health

of the personnel under their care.

"In determining the amount of liqu­

or for a ship from a foreign country

having laws governin'g, medlca1~~cffnc-

ers should be guided by the sworn

statement of the ship's doctor as to

the quantity of liquor required for

medicinal purposes. The ship's doc­

tor should sign (form 1539), Just be­

low the master and both may be sworn

at the same time. In case the vessel

carries no doctor the medical prac­

tices of the country from which she

hails will be observed, so far as It is

possible, to determine from the iaws

of that country.

"All previous instructions in conflict

with the foregoing are hereby re­

scinded."

in one 0/ the steel mills under his

charge:

"One day while 1 was passing

through the works 1 looked out a

second story window into the first

flour of an adjoining shop and saw a

big Irishman silting on the handles

of his wheelbarrow smoking his pipe.

I called to him, 'What are you doing

down there? Why don't you gel to

work' ?

"To which 'the Irishman replied,

'Well, itell me, and who are you, sir?'

'I said. 'I'm the general nsanager."

" 'Well young man, said hF, 'you've

a damned good job; you'd better take

care of it.' "—^Forbes Magazine.

they did.

In the first inning the visitors broke

the ice by scoring one run on an error

by Lundy and a double by Gteason.

Harlem's half was very fruitful. Dillon

doubled, Vanlderstyne singled, Cleary

The Soapstone Electric Iron

When the iron is hot you can

SCIBNCB has now combined the age-old household

aid—soapstone, with the modem electrical servant

the electric iron.

Your grandmother heated a soapstone to warm the

beds. She used it on long, cold rides in the winter. It was

an indispensable part of her housekeeping equipment

Today, in the Stahot Electric Iron, you have that same

soapstone which your grandmother used acting as the

heating element In convenience and economy it surpasses

all other irons—^'us^ because of this soapstone.

Turn on the current. In a few minutes the iron will be hot. If

you are doing light ironing you can disconnect the cord after the

iron is hot and iron for from fifteen to forty-five minutes. Right

there is a saving in the current consumed.

Then think of the pleasure of ironing with the cord detached.

Nothing in the way. Nothing to bother you.

dT Cr*HVl m^t^i' f'fl i^ r^/lV/^^^^f'Tl /? if the work is heavy, wet sheets, bath towels and the like, you will

probably want to keep the current on continuously. But where

other irons soon become too cool to use, the Stahot will still give

soapstone holds the heat— you plenty of even heat. You will never have to stop work to let

the Stahot heat up.

It is the soapstone that stores the heat—as a reservoir stores

water, giving out a constant supply as you need it.

There are added comforts too. Due to the scientific construction

of the Stahot Iron the heat is given off downward through the

sole of the iron and the handle stays cool. Then there is an attached

heel rest which eliminates the old stand; the pointed cut-away

nose that makes ironing

ruffles easy; the perfec t balance

of the iron, and the

blue handle and bright

nickeled body which make

it a thing of beauty.

If your dealer doesn't carry

the Stahot Electric Iron

Proper Flag DUpUy.

Lessons on the proper manner in

vhlch to d!!ip1ay the United States

Slag were given during a recent convention

at the National Capital. Many

people with ths best of Intentions used

the flag In an improper manner for

decorative purposes. Protests from patriotic

societies brought out the fact

that the War Department has published

a small bulletin i;iving a few rules

On the subject not based upon law

but upon fu;utamental rules of heral-

•dry and good taste. Among these rules

are the following:

' The union uf the flag is the honor

point; the :ighi arm is the sword

arm and therefore the placfc of honor.

The staff edge of the flag Is the

heraldic dexter nr right edge.When the

national flag is carried, as in a procession,

with ar.uther flag or flags, the

place of the :'.ational flag is on the

right, 1. e.. the flag's own right. When

the national iliz and another flag are

•displayed tos?ther as aganst a wall

from crossed staffs, the national flag

should be on the right, the flag's own

right, 1. e., the observer's left and Its

staff should lie In front of the staff

•oj the other flig. When a number of

Jlags are grouped and displayed from

Miffs the iiatonal flag should be in

•flie center or al the highest point of

*he group. V/hsn the national flag Is

fcung either h-.-rizontally or vertically

against a wall, die union should be uprennost

and to the flag's own right,

«. e., to the observer's left. When displayed

from a staflT projecting horiaonially

or at an angle from a window

sill cr the front of a building the same

rules should he observed; the union

should go clear lo the "truck" as the

peak of the ;titT is called unless the

ilag be at half statT. When the flag is

suspended between buildings so as to

liiiiig over the middle of the street a

simple rule i: lo ha«g the union 'to

the north in i- east and west street

or to the ea:: In a north and south

street.

"Internationa! usage forbids the display

of the fTj4 of one nation above

that of any .ther nation In time of

eace. The innnnai flag when not

S

own from a ;»aff should be always

liung flat whether indoors or out. It

should not b^' festooned over doorways

or archtf:, nor tied In a bowknot

ror fashioned into a roseiie. When

used on a rostrum it should be displayed

above and behind the speaker's

desk. It shoulii never be uied to cover

the speaker'': desk nor to drape over

the *ront of ihi platform. For this latter

purpose a:: well as for decoration

Jn general bunting of the national colors

should be used and since the blue

«nion Of the flag always goes to the

lionor point, the colors should be arranged

with the blue above, the white

in the middle and the red below.

Under no circumstances should the

lag be draped jver chairs or benches

tior should any object or emblem ot

anv kind be plsred above It nor should

it be hung where it can be easily contaminated

or s&iled. No lettering of

anv kind should ever be placed upon

the flag. It should not be used as a

. portion of a woman's costume nor of

a man's athletic clothing. A very common

misuse of the flag is the practice

•of embroideriiij; the flag on cushions

and handkerchi-fs and the printing of

the flag on pivsr napkins.

*'On .Memciriai Day the national flag

is displayed ai half siatf from sunrise

until noon ami at full staflT from noon

«ntll sunset. When flown at half staff

4he flag Is alv/ays first hoisted to the

peak, the h'u-.-r point and then always

lowered to half staff position but betore

lowering the flag fur the day it

is raised again to the head of the staff.

the Lincoln Agricultural School at

Uncolndaie broke into musical comedy

the capacity audience were hardly prepared

for the delightful surprise that

awaited them. Those who came to see

the play came for legitimate recreation

and amusement, cherishing a kind of

self-conscious hope that they would

carry away with them something to

brighten life's darker side. And they

were not dlsappoli^ted.

If a crowded house and the voice

of the press count for anything, then

may the' embryo farmers well believe

that they have surpassed themselves.

it took a three act play to satisfy the

dramatic ambitions of the young Thespians

and the tremultuous applausee

that followed each act showed how

heartily the cultured audience appreciated

their efforts. From the moment

the curtain arose; which made those

present sit up ancj take notice, till

the end of the performance, when the

entire company rendered "While you're

far away," there was not a dull or uninteresting

moment on the program.

"His Royal Romance" is a beautiful

imaginative original thing, high In

Intention and excellent in achievement.

The plot which points a moral was

excellently developed and Impressed

the audience. It tells of Captain Rex

Vernon of the A. E. F, who fails In

love with his nurse. Princess Adrlenne,

Incognito. They drift apart after he

is discharged from the hospital, unaware

of her identity. Things begin to

happen when he receives a secret commission

from the ruler of Kordovla,

soliciting his aid In combatting the

intrigues and propaganda of Bolshevist

spies. The touch of pathos wanted to

complete the romance, is supplied by

Adrlenne, who abdicates her throne in

favor of her minister and choosing to

spend the rest of her life In the "land

of the brave and free"—America.

The play itself exacts something

above the ordinary In the matter of

personation and reflects great credit

on the school. The lads selected to

act the various parts won meritorious

applause. To single out any particular

star would probably do an injustice,

as the splendid team work and acting

was above the usual type of amateur

acting expected of boys in their teens.

T. Stanwood Thornton who coached

the play, deserves much commendation

not only for having spent a good deal

of time and energy to make it the

success it was, but for bringing the

cast to a standard where it compares

honorably wKb other boy actors. That

is a great achievement.

Dr. Francis J. Quinlan, the new

president of the Board of Trustees,

was then Introduced by Brother Paul-

Ian. Dr. Quinlan said a number of nice

things about the School and Its work.

He told the players that the foundation

of their characters was laid while

they are In the school. He commented

upon the individuality of the Lincolndale

boys and congratulated them on

the splendid showing they made. The

School Is to be congratulated in securing

the services of Dr. Quinlan

whose broad charity, charming personality

and thorough Catholic spirit

have endeared him to a host of friends.

Dr. Clendennlngs' brief remarks

will long be remembered for their

eloquence and enDlghtenment. Rev.

Martin A. Scanlon spoke with frankness

and appreciation of the work

carried on by the School. George B.

Board of Trustees, said that the players

fully reflected the great care and

Interest manifested In their training

and regretted that the numbers in the

school were so few. Mr. Robinson was

president for many years and his earnestness,

zeal and devotion were Justly

admired.

The show will long be remembered

by those who were present and who

went away wtth words of praise on

their lips for the youngsffcrs who acquitted

themselves so admirably. It

was said at the School that the performance

will be repeated by special

request in some of the neighboring

towns, it was produced for the benefit

of the boys of the Protectory at

Westchester last Monuday.

Two million dollars in private residences

have been sold In White Plains

and immediate vicinity during the

months of April and May. Careful

comparison discloses that this figure

represents the largest volume recorded

for any similar period with the exception

of May, 1920. it is also interesting

to note that the prices paid for

houses is very little lower than In

W

1920, the boom year. In some instances

bouses have been sold this

spring at higher prices. This situation,

however. Is confined strictly to the

newer type of house of six and seven

rooms selling at prices from twelve to

fifteen hundred dollars. It seems to

indicate that suburban home buyers

have become convinced that all new

houses will not "fall down in a few

years"—an expression heard these

days—Daily Reporter.

'H Y IS IT, I WONDER, that you stm read about so many

automobile accidents at railroad crossings? With the thousands

of smashed cars and undertakers' bills caused this way,

you'd suppose that every motorist would put on the old thinking cap

when he spots a crossing.

"I saw a smash once, and that was enough for me. No more taking

chances for Yours Truly after that, or 'hoping' there isn't a train coming.

You can't absolutely trust anything but your own eyes to tell

you whether the track is clear or not. The flagman may not be on

duty when you happen along. The automatic signal may be out of

order. The train may be coasting quietly down a grade toward the

crossing. There are a dozen 'mays', and 'may nots', and 'ifs'.

"No sireel Life's too short and sweet to take blind chances at grade

crossings—when it's so simple and easy to make sure. My tip is:

always assume there is a train coming. It is better to be wrong than

to have your picture in next day's paper—" Victim of Auto Wreck."

The great Toluiub of propifanda

brought most motorj&ts'tna realisation

that there Is niore rotim behind a train

Of these repurts 107, or 27 per cent,

RUT-PROOF TIRE IS

NOT ON ANY MARKET

Not Wise Plan for Automobile

Driver to Follow Straight and

Narrow Path With Car.

Itie old axiom about the advIsahtU

Ity of following the straight and nar>

row path holds as good today as ew,

but the autoist who Interprets It ai

meaning that he should drive In ruts

and car tracks will find It pretty expensive

advice. A rnt can be classed

with flies, mosquitoes and other pests.

Tt wns made for no reason at all.

Some men pick out ruts to drive In

becnunp it saves a certain amount of

ateerlng. but the law of compensation

Is an Inexorable one, as the rut flend

soon discovers when he finds Ida tires

chewed to biti. Tt would be quite

Impossible to build a tire that could

with any degree of trutli be termed

a mt-proof rasing, because of the fact

that the side wall cannot be made

as heavy and Inflexible as the tread.

No great amount of re-enforclng material

can be built upon the side wall

of a tire. In rut running both the

side walls become the tread as much

as does that portloa of the casing

which was Intended to come In contact

with the road. In fact, in nit

running the side walls, under such circumstances,

are subjected to even

more abuse than the tread, for the

reason that the tread rolls over the

surface of the ground, while the side

walls are scmffed and subjected to a

aide-swlplng motion that very soon

wears away a rubber tire. Of course,

It Is quite true that there are times

when bad roads cannot be avoided or

irtien conditions make It absolutely

necessary to drop Into a rut—H. W.

One of Chief Factors in Doing Ooed

Work ef Any Kind—Equipment

of Impertanoe.

One of the principal factors in doing

good work of any sort lies In being

prepared for the Job yott are going to

tackle, niia Is something the new

car owner often fails to realise. Ton

csnnot properly wash a car, grind the

valves, clean a spark plug or do any

of the other Jobs necessary for keeping

the car In good order without being

perfectly equipped for the work.

By degrees the car owner collects the

equipment to enable him to finish each

Job he tacklaa in a workmanlike and

satisfactory manner,
