RAILS REPEL BEAR ATTACK Industrials Under Pressure, but Rails Are Strong. NEW YORK, Feb. 24.-The unfavor able statement of the federal reserve bank Issued last Saturday, together with a break in demand sterling of 5% cents, caused violent declines at the opening of the stock rnwrket today, losses of from 1 to over C points being sustained in all Industrials. Steel common sold off 1% to 98. Cruci ble dropped 5% to 198%; Baldwin Loco motive 3 points to 109% and Republic Steel over 2 points to 99%. Some gains were made In the railroad group at the opening, because of the passage of the railroad bill, but these issues quickly sold off with the rest of the list. Reading advanced % to 76% and then fell 1 point. Southern Pacific sold up to 98, but quickly yielded to 96V4. St. Louis A San Francisco gained % to 64%, with a reaction to 63%.

INCOME TAX FACTS YOU SHOULD KNOW Numerous Inquiries are received by collectors of internal revenue concerning the income tax in its relation to the combined net income of husband ar.d wife Occasionally these questions indi cate that there is in the tnind of the taxpayer the impression that Income re ceived by the husband If turned over to the wife, may be regarded as a gift nnd therefore is not taxable. Such, how ever, is not the ease. If the combined income of husband and wife for the year 1919 equaled or exceeded $2.f100, a return must be filed on or before March 15, 1020 The combined net Income of hus band and wife In excess of $2,<)00 is tax able. The law provides also that the income of minor dependent children must be Included In the returrt of the pareut. For example, a husband’s net Income for 1919 was $1,200. His wife, employed as a seamstress, received from such work a net Income of $506 Two minor sons, dependent upon their parents, each re ceived SSOO as messengers. The total family Income was $2,700, from whh’h may i>e deducted the personal exemption of s2,‘<io plus S2OO for each dependent son, leaving a taxable income of s.'‘.oo, on which, at the normal rate of 4 per cent, the tax is sl2. Where the combined Income of hits hand and wife Is $5,000 or less the wife’s return may he Included In that of her husband. Where the combined income exceeds $5,000. separate returns are re quired for the purpose of computing the surtax, which applies only tq Income* In excess of that amount. The following will serve as an Ulus tration of the combined tax on husband and wife: The net Income of a husband for 1919 was $7,(810 and that of his wife $2,000. From the husband’s Income tnav be deducted the personal exemption of $2,000. tin the first $4,(8)0, at the normal rate of 4 per cent, the tax is $l6O. t'n the remaining SI,OOO. at the normal rate of 8 per cent, the tax Is SBO. making the total normal tax of the husband $-40. In addition he pays a surtax of l per cent on the amount of Ills net Income be tween $5,000 and $6,000, amounting to sl'>. and 2 per cent on the amount of bis net Income between $6.00* and s7.otst. amounting to S2O. making a total norm i! and surtax of $270. The wife ran claim no personal exemption, and her -ntlre income of $2,(88) Is taxed at the rate of 4 per rent, being less than $4,000 The combined Income of husband and wife on an aggregate income of $9 060 is $350. The exemption of $2,000 allowed Ihe head of a family also is the subject of frequent inquiry. A single person Is the head of n family If be Is the sole support of the relatives living In the same house with him. and If he exer cises control over household affairs. In th<- absence of continuous residence tr get her the circumstances of the sep aration may determine the amount of the exemption. Whether or not he Is the head of a family, a single person, if his iiPt Income for 1919 was $1.(88) or more, must file n return. For example, a widower has a son 9 years old whom he Is supporting In a school because bis Income of $1,1300 a year does not per mit him to maintain a home. Since he Is not married, he must tile a return, but as the head of a family he is en titled to an exemption of $2,000, with an additional exemption of S2OO be cause of the dependent child. Mere support of a dependent who continuously and without necessity re sides elsewhere than In the home of the taxpayer, however, does not confer the $2 000 exemption, though It may be made the basis of a claim of S2OO for a dependent. For esch person (other than husband or wife) dependent upon him for support the taxpayer Is al lowed an exemption of S2OO, provided such person is under 18 years of age or Incapable of self-support. This exemption does not depend upon family relationship nor* whether the taxpayer and dependent are members of the same household. Thus a tax payer. unmarried and living In the city, who supports a mother incapable of self-support and who from choice lives In the old homestead in the country, is entitled to an exemption of $1,200. The separation is not one of necessity. If, however, the mother should live under the same roof with the son, he would be entitled to the sl>,ooo exemption allowed the head of a family. Careful study of the forms now In the hands of collectors and deputy col lectors of Internal revenue for distribu tion among taxpayers will aid greatly in the filing of a correct return. If, however, the tuxpayer meets with un usual difficulties lie may call upon the bureau’s experts, who are visiting every eounty 111 the United States to assist taxpayers in making out the forms. The services of these experts are offered without cost., but failure of the tax payer to see them does not relieve him from his obligation to file his return, neeompnnled by at least one-fourth of the amount of tax due, on or before March 15, 1920. Women Deny They Boycotted Farmer CHICAGO, Feb. 24.- -Because the woman's department of the fair price committee has sent out letters believed to be urging a boycott against farmers, the Illinois Agricultural association yes terday opened a war in behalf of its 54,800 members. Charges that the gov ernment frank is being illegally used were mailed to President Wilson by D. O. Thompson, secretary of the associa tion. •'I have seen several of the circulars the woman's committee sent out," said Mr. Thompson. “They were signed by Mrs. Joseph T. Bowen and they were malted in frank envelopes. "These circulars ask that the farmers be boycotted, I believe. Our farmers realize that increased production will bring down the prices, but If these women tel! us that they won’t buy the things we produce—well, the farmers just won’t produce them, that's all. What's the use?" Mrs. Maud R. Turlay of the woman’s committee asserted that no such circulars as Mr. Thompson spoke of had been sent out. "We wouldn't think of advising a boy cott." said Mr. Turlay. "When we have bjdieved that prices have been too high WfAyiave advised our friends and mem benSWo discontinue purchasing that ar ticle the time being."

The hogs aver aging more than 300 pounds were sup posed to sell around $13.50, hogs down to 275 pounds at $13.75, ou down to 250 pounds at $14.25, those down to 225 pounds at $14.60, or. down to 200 pounds a! $14.73, and the lighter kinds averaging leßs than 200 pounds at sls. It did not appear that there were any sales higher tb;n sl3 and on Monday there were sev eral sales at $15.35 to $15.50. The gen eral market was 25c lower than the day before. There was a greater loss in prices of pigs that sold from $13.50 down and sows were mostly 25c lower, with a few of the very best at sl3. About 5,500 of 6,000 hogs were sold. Cattle. Cattle on the Tuesday market were higher but the advance In a general way was not enough to be significant or to encourage the expectation of much per manent improvement in affairs In the near future trade. The light receipts of 1,000 cattle was a strengthening fat tor and sellers were further strengthened by a few outside orders. These, how ever, were confined largely to the light steers and heifers and did not benefit the general market. There were some of the sales as much as 25c higher than those for the day before but the con census of opinion did not a gain of more than 10c or 15c on most of the fat cattle. Calves were higher with a few of the best veals up to $21.50 nnd there was continued quiet mar ket for feeding cattle at quotubly un changed prices. Hlteep. There was an Increased run of 700 sheep and lambs, but most of the sup ply was Included in one shipment of western fed lambs that sold at $20.25 and were considered $1 lower than they would have sold on the day before.

Kenosha and Milwaukee coun ties are the principal onion producing counties In Wisconsin." says R. E. Vaughn of the plant pathology depart ment of the University of Wisconsin. “Although we often read about the enormous yields of onions in other states, such reports must be taken w'.th a grain of salt,’’ continues Mr. Vaughn, who is aiding the onion growers to keep tbeir fields and crop free from disease. “Wisconsin yields compare fa vorably with them. It is not uncommon for onion growers In Racine county to get as high as 600 bushels to the acre. “Most of the onions grown in Wiscon sin for commercial purposes are of the •Red Weather*9cid' variety. Fully two thirds of the total yield Is marketed through St. Louis to the southwest, at a time when that market is practically free from onions. Growers usually ob tain a good price for their crop. Wis consin produced 136,000 bushels In 1919. “Brown and Outagamie counties are rapidly pushing to the front as truck growing sections, and they promise to become big factors in the onion Indus try.

A number of farmers who were In attendance here at the annual gathering of agriculturists said they had made con tracts with reliable and competent men at that figure. They said that it was necessary tc do so for the reason that the supply ot competent farm labor was limited and they found it profitable to pay more if they got the kind of men wanted. Many of the farm hands have Joined the I. W. W. in recent year* and others have gone to town, where they get 30 and hour and have the movies right around the corner. Fifteen years ago the average paid in the statfc ran from S2O to $25 a month. Later it rose to S4O. and during the wai and last year, with the $2 wheat guaran tee in effect, $75 and SBO was paid. The Increase of wages in the cities and towns is given as the reason for the necessity of paying SIOO a month to get the beat men.
