have not been decided upon, but
it is believed "will exempt all incomes
below $4,000 or $5,000; and will provide
a tax of one per cent, upon the j
majority of personal incomes that do
not run to an excessive figure.
Informal notice of the final adoption
of the new amendment was given
to the senate by Senator Brown, of
Nebraska, who introduced the resolution
in 1909 upon which the pro
posal for an income tax amendment
was submitted to the State. Drafting
of the bill to put -the tax in effec,
it is expected, will fall to the
lot of Representative Hull, of Tennessee,
a member of the house ways
and means committee, who drew the
excise tax foill proposed last year by
the Democratic house, but which did
not become law.

chilling rain, -which commenced Sunday
night and continued throughout
today, Winthrop college day at the
Fifth National Corn, exposition was a
success from all standpoints, including
that of attendance. While no official
figures have been given by the
exposition management, it is believed
that the attendance today exceeded
that of Saturday, which, while not so
large as that of Friday, was one of
the banner days of last ^eek in point
Nearly 800 young ladies from Winthrop
college, accompanied by Dr. D.
B. Johnson, arrived at the exposition
grounds early this morning on a special
train from Rock Hill. The young
ladies made things lively at the
grounds during the entire day and for
once at least in the history of the exposition
the rustic seats which have
been ptentifully installed around under
the palms and palmetoes, which
form a part of the floral decorations,
were freely and fully u-s?d. The
young ladies returned tonight about 7
o'clock on their special train.
From All Parts of State.
Many visitors from all parts of
t South Carolina attended the exposition
today, many of them being relatives
and friends of the Winthrop
college students, who took advantage
of this opportunity to view the educational
exhibits at the exposition as
well as to greet again the young
ladies from the college. The rainy
day made little or no difference, for
the reason that however damp and
cold it was without, the exposition

comfortable within, and there was no
exposure whatever to the weather, excepting
from the short distance between
the exposition entrance and
the str-et car tracks. The attendance
today encourages the exposition management
in the belief that that the attendance
during the coming five days
l of the exDO^ition will ereatlv exceed
that of last week. Without exception,
every visitor to the exposition
has gone away an enthusiastic booster

B -was warm in bis praise of the educafk

exhibits from the government
and many Suites.
"It beats any exposition I've ever
seen in the agric "*al line," he said
today. "No farmer .u South Carolina
ought to let anything stand in the
way of his visiting the exposition during
the next few days. It is worth a
week's careful study."
J. D. ROCKEFELLER IS
New York, Feb. 3.?John D. Rockefeller
is $10,000,000 richer today than
he was yesterday. Of a special dividend
declared today by the Standard
Oil company of Jftw Jersey, this
'amount approximately represents his
share of a total distribution of $39,332,000
the company's capital
stock at lie ratejof $40 a share.
Th? huge "m^lon" comes as* a result,
it was indicated in a statement
given out by the company} of the
supreme court's dissolution decree.
This necessitated thje? payment to the
parent company of vast sums owed
to it by former subsidiaries.
It was explained that this dividend
represented monies owed to the com
pany by its subsidiaries at the time
of the dissolution.
"The companies have made payments/'
a statement says, "from time
to time as able to do so from monies
raised by the realization of assets or
increase of capital stock."
In round figures, the total payments
to stockholders will amount
Announcement was made today
that stockholders of the Continental

against society that ought to be

a snake in the grass to strike the
unwary. The world has for long
enough made the victim suffer its
most serious condemnation, and we
would not advocate any change of
