CARROLL GETS DIVORCE ; Charlog Bancroft Carroll, direct de scendant of Charles Carroll of Car-' rollton and owner of the historical j Carroll mansion in Howard county, "Doughoregan Manor," has been di vorced ty his wife who was formerly ■ Miss Anita Hack, of Baltimore. She has leen granted the custody of Uieirj two children, Charles Carroll, 7 years! old and Anita M. L. Carroll. 6 years.! The Carroll family is one of the lest > known in Maryland and for some years Mr. Carroll was a resident of! Annapolis during the three years he was a midshipman. Mr. and Mrs. Carroll were married, at the home of the bride's father at j 1201 Bt. Haul street by the Rev. Dr. William A. Fletcher, then rector of the Cathedral. Mrs. Carroll was of a Protestant family and It was for i this reason that the wedding was held j at the home rather than at the Cu-| thedral. Cardinal Gihtons was a close friend of the Carrolls. He celebrated the mass at Doughoregan Chapel, on the Carroll estate, when the family re turned to its ancestral home in the fall of 1012 after many years' resi dence In Paris. The chapel Is located In one end cf the manor house and bears the name of St. Mary and Is a mission of St. 1 .outs' parish in Clarksville. It was built by the second Charles Carroll, of Annapolis, known by that name, as he spent the winter months at his residence here. CHARMING PLAY PRESENTED IN ST. MARY’S HALL (Continued Front Pace I.) As the inimitable Judy Abbott. Miss C. Hanlon was adorable. Combining good looks and charm with a clear, sweet voice, she made Jean Webster's dear little orphan seem absolutely real. Miss M Hill, ns Sallie .Mcßride, proved a sweet and affectionate room mate cf Judy's, while Miss Ruth Brook, as Julie Pendleton, the des cendant of a long line of exclusive and aristocratic Pendletons, was quite attractive and lovable despite hi r “superior” ancektry. Due to the illness of Miss Agnes Quinn, who was to have tilled the role cf Miss Pritchard, a lifelong friend of Judy's, Miss Catherine Brock wms forced to assume the part and, after only two rehearsals, carried It through with a composure and ease vorthy of practice ten Mines as long. As Miss Catherine Brock had previ ously been cast for the role of Julie Pendleton, this change necessitated I the substitution of her younger sister, j GARDEN | TODAY AND TOMORROW Franklyn Farnum The Western Fire Brand “Trails End” -ALSO LARRY SEMON COMEDY M I I S “Pierrette” Hats Exclusive | But Not Expensive # IF style intrigues you—and price is a factor “Pierrette” 5p <t*C Hats should be tiJC pO your choice ....

VII. Thousands of persons derive their income almost wholly from salaries or wages. Salaries paid by a State or political subdivision thereof as a city. town, county, or hamlet, how ever. are not taxable. The reason is that the Federal Government does not tax the instrumentalities of a State. In this connection many persons have the mistaken 1 eiief that all school teachers are exempt from payment of the income tax. Tachers are not ex empt because engaged in educational work, but only when employed by a State or political subdivision thereof. Public-school teachers in the Dis trict of Columbia. Alaska and Hawaii are not in the exempted class for the reason that they are not State em ployees, and their salaries, or part thereof, are paid by the Federal Gov ernment. The salaries of all Federal officers and employees are subject to the tax except that a Federal income tax cannot he levied on the salary of •he President of the United States nor a Federal judge which would dlmin } ish the salary that was in effect at the time they took office. The special exemption of $3,500 for persons in active military or naval service allowed under the revenue act lof 1918 no longer is allowed. Sol | diers and sailors in making returns j of income for the year 1922 are al : lowed only the personal exemptions I and credits granted a civilian. SAMUEL W. BROOKS & CO.l CHAR.

Foster Bain, director of the Uuited States Bureau of Miues. would be impossible in the soft coal fields cf Illinois, according to Robert Me diil. stale director of Mines and Min erals.

This danger would te only increased by attempting any large storage underground. The only place soft coal can te safely stored is above ground, and then of course it is sutject to shrinkage.” Seasonable demands for coal could be stabilized hv the storage plan.
