Mr. Blotpklna Income for 1B1T had

bad been rather anappy on tho sub

although tbelr Incomes were nearly
balf of bla, they would pay only s
small fraction of tha amount ha paid
no gloomily drew tho blank bearer
nd began Oiling In tho Information
that It aakad for.
As Mr. Rlmpklns Income was f lS.nrx)
bo hsd to figure out tho aoionnls pay
able on each of Iho successlro smaller
rlaaaes of Incomea In order to arrive
t tho total due from hlnieulf. He
paaeed over tho flrat clans who must
pay taxea, that la, alngle men making
over 1,0(10. Ilia calculation for mar
ried men then ehowed op as folHws:
Flrat. they pay 1 per cent, (under
tho 1010 raw) on all Income oxer
H.noo, deducting I'JQO for each of their
children nnder eighteen years. In Mr.
Blmpklna" case thla waa $212, which bo
put down In tho "payable" column.
lie saw next that, under the 101T
raw, married men pay an additional 3
per cent on all oxer $2.0tl0 with tho
time allowance for children. This
added I2T.2 to his "payable" column,
lie then obaerxed that for every
12.600 jump In his Income oxer $.1,001)
he had to pay a Surtax, the percentage
growing larger with each Jump. Thla
was $220 mora aiided to his bunion.
And on top of all this came an "Kx
rese Profit." tag of 8 per cent, on all
"occupation" Income oxer $0,000, mnk'
log $720 mure.
The total, then, he mnat pay waa four
teen hundred and thirty-four dollars.
"Whew I" exclnlmed Mr. Rlmpklns
angrily. "There's yming Ifonry Wll-

Thinking of young Henry Wllklns,
bo remembered that Mrs. Wllklns went
exery afternoon to make bandages for
the tied Croas and that Henry, who
waa a lawyer, waa aiding the Local
Draft Hoard with Its qtiealliHinalrea.
"Well," be admitted to hlmaelf,
"that mnkea difference."
He thought oext of Judge Wlllough
tj, whose Income wna about $3,000.
"He only psys $20," commented Mr.
Hmipkliie, not quite so angrily this
time; and then a thought struck him
snd be sat up rigidly In hla chair.

"Judge Wlllnuchby save his son to

He leaned forward suddenly snd put

tlcklug of the tall clock and an occa

Mr. Klnipklna was thinking things
