Income Tax Facts
You Should Know
Bridegrooms are worrying as to how
they shall figure their Income tax. A
constant stream of inquiries from the
newly-weds is reaching the internal rev
enue officials. In many of these cases
both'the bride and groom were employed
tip to the wedding date; and the prin
cipal point on which advice is asked Is
as to whether the bride’s income must
be shown on the groom’s return.
The answer as given by tho interna,
revenue men is that all ot the earnings
and other Income of both the bride and
the groom for the year 1919 mqfst be con
sidered, even if it was all spent on
trousseau, diamonds, wedding trips and
bonbons. The fact that they were mar
ried on or before Dec. 31 Joins them for
the whole year, so far as InconSe tax is
concerned.
A bride of 1919 Is in duty bound to
figure up her income and to add it to
hubby's 1019 earnings to determine
whether an income tax return is re
quired. If the total was $2,000 or more,
a return must be made, in which case
both bride and groom may file separate
returns, or must file a joint return. The
latter method is preferred by the collec
tors, unless the aggregate net income of
both husband and ife is $.1,000 or over.
And they all want to know whether, al
lhough married only part of the year
1919, they are entitled to claim full ex
emption as a married couple. The an
swer is a decided yes; they are allowed
$2,000, plus S2OO for each dependent who
is under 18 cr who, through age, defect,
etc., is incapßble of self-support. This
exemption may be split in any propor
tions on the separate returns of husband
and wife, if they file that. way.
“And remember that March 15 in the
final date for filing returns and paying
income taxes,’’ is the warning that the
revenue men add to the above advice.

Egg and Poultry Men
Meet Here in March
The sixth annusl convention of the In
diana Egg and Poultry association will
be held, at the Claypool hotel March 2
and 3. ’
William liOCks of Indianapolis, secre
tary of the association, declared today
that ho Is making preparations for the
biggest and best convention in the his
tory of the organisation.
Indiana shippers are expected In large
numbers and shippers from adjoining
states and have signified their intention
of being present.
Discussion of the spring outlook for
trade, a review of the foreign exchange
situation which is playing havoc with
export business and topics of general
trade interest will come before the con
vention.
Today’s Market Gossip
Copper imports in United States in 1919
were, 30,000,000 pounds less than 1918.
Minneapolis wires: “Cash wheat re
covered sllghtlv from earlv low. Now
s®loe lower; very Indifferent demand.
Corn market firm, about 1 cent up. Oat s
are strong; seems an unlimited demand
for all grades; prices 4@Sc over the fu
tures. Rye firm, quoted 1 cent over May.
Barley In good demand, unchanged to 1
cent higher.’’
Latest Danish butter enrgo Is now be
ing unloaded at New York. It contains
700,000 pounds and Is the largest butter
shipment to reach this country.
Chicago dispatch says that the falling
off In demand for fresh meats continues
to be reflected in local fresh pork mar
kets. Loins opened 1 cent lower and are
off 3 cents this week to 29 cents.
New York wire says that banks are
showing no disposition to put out time
money freely, although small loans are
made for shorter periods. Mixed money
Is 8% per cent bid for two to four
months loans and 9 per cent for Indus
trial accommodations maturing tn thirty
and ninety days.
Russell’s News says; “One' of the
largest local handlers of cash oats stated
he had purchased 1,000,000 bushels Cana
dian oats shipment opening of naviga
tion and that there was fully 5,000,000
bought thus far with further business to
be done. It’s said these oats figure about
7 cents cheaper than American oats
based on largo discount on Canadian
money."
Chicago wire says that commencement
of spring plowing and seeding in the
south, importation of Argentine corn, re
sales of grains by foreign countries, and
poor shipping outlets are some of the
reasons for expecting lower prices In
corn. Conservative operators believe the
small movement from the country Is a
good reason for causing many reactions
in tho downward trend.
New York wire says: “The railroad
hill is before congress and In the next
few years is going to be some
railroad history made in this country.
The bill itself may please some and dis
please others, but It is a settlement of
a serious problem and actual practice
will develop the necessity for changes,
and these can be made at any time. The
Important point is that the interestate
commerce commission is direoted by law
to make rates that will produce enough
revenue to make railroad operation profit
able. Every railroad stock quoted in
our market is selling far below Its
value and certainly far below the gen
eral level prevailing in the country to
day. I suppose most watered property
in the country could not be duplicated
today at existing costs for the amount
of securities outstanding.”

Any difference in the hog market
"omphred with the Thursday trade was
interpreted as being In favor of the
selling side and there was a distinct
advance of 25c on a number of the hogs
averaging less than 275 pounds. Then*
were a number of buyers who preferred
to pay a premium of 25c over regular
rates for the assorted hogs, and the
actual sales showed a difference of 2;x.
in prices of many of the bogs that were
of the same average. The top price
for the lightest bogs, according to the
fixed schedule, was sls, but there were
numerous pales at $15.25 and there was
a top sale of $15.50. The hogs at $14.00
to $14.76 were steady, as were also those
averaging 276 pounds upward at $13..0
to $13.75, but those averaging 230 to 2(5
pounds at $14.25 were 25c higher in n reg
ular way. There was a strong market
for pigs, with sales of the fat backs as
high as sl6 and sows were higher, with
the best at sl3, but there were not mwy
higher than $12.60. There was a goild
clearance of the supply of 7,000 fresh and
1,000 layover hogs.
Cattle.
According to the views of must of the
traders In cattle the tendency of af
fairs was again tilted a little lu favor us
the buying side, and there were i. mini
her of observations Indicating turner an
unfavorable outlook fur the near fu
ture business. All kinds of kilting cat
tle have buffered a considerable loss In
price* so far this week, In isolated cases
probably up to $1 and rarely less than
60c. Female butcher cattle have de
clined more than steers and the loss In
prices of bulla has been about 60c. There
was a steady market for veal calves at
s2l down and also for the heavy kinds
from sll down. The demand for feeding
cattle was no better and prices were
weak.
Sheep.
The native lambs in the depleted sup
ply of fewer than 100 sold at $18.50, and
the good heavy ewes at $9.30. which was
considered steady with sales for the day
before. Buyers claim they will pay Chi
cago prices for the western fed stock.

EXPORT ACTION
LOWERS GRAINS
Shipments From Argentine to
Europe a Factor.
CHICAGO, Feb. 20.—The grain market
on the Chicago Board of Trade suffered
a setback today. Heavy shipments of
grain to Europe from Argentine, caus
ing export-rs to drop out of the buying,
factored in the decline.
An appeal by Julius Barnes, head of
the United States grain corporation, for
wider use of grain corporation flour was
Interpreted us a bearish influence.
Provisions were Irregular.
February corn opened unchanged at
$1.42, but later advanced %c. March

WEATHER CONDITIONS 7 A. M.
A depression nmv rovers most of the
region from the North Pacific to the
southern plains section, and has oc
casioned extensive precipitation In the
far west and northwest, and higher tem
peratures generally to the eastward over
the Mississippi und Ohio valleys and lakes
region. It is considerably colder again
from the Dakotas and Montana north
ward, however, due to a field of high
barometric pressure now advancing over
middle-western Canada; but the readings
there are only slightly below the normal
for the season, although ranging from 3
above to 14 below zero.

DROP IN MEATS
FALSE ALARM
Decline, Heralded to Appear,
Has Not Materialized.
CHICAGO, Feb. 20. —Prices of meat, ex
pected to tumble the early part of 1920.
have not started their downward trend
yet, according to_£gures compiled yester
day by the United States bureau of mar
kets here.
The only drop in either wholesale o r
retail prices of meats during the last
year, came early last autumn, according
to the bureau's reports. At that time
the wholesale prices declined sufficient
to allow a general decline of abont 5
cents a pound In 811 except the best
grades of pork and beef.
LARD ONLY PORK
PRODUCT TO DECLINE.
Practically the only pork product to
show a marked decline since Jan. 1,
according to the bureau, is lard, which
is now selling cheaper than the majority
of the vegetable substitutes.
In order to make up for th** decline m
lard quotations, packers were forced to
ralso-prlees on cuts for which the great
est demands were made, the bureau re
ported.
Comparative wholesale prices trf meats
burnished by the bureau follow:
.Tan. 2. ’2O. Feb. 18. ’2O
Good beef, cwt. s2o®s23 $18.50®521.00
Ccws, cwt sls®Blli $14.50®516.50

Shoulders, lb 10rg.20% ,20€.2
SURPLUS HAS NOT
CAUGHT UP WITH DEMAND.
The general opinion voiced by both
packers and butchers was that a sharp
decline in m>*at prices could be expected '
ns a result of the lack of export demand.
However, the surplus In this country 1*
not sufficient vet to force any marked
drop, they stated.
