RAILS REPEL
BEAR ATTACK
Industrials Under Pressure,
but Rails Are Strong.
NEW YORK, Feb. 24.-The unfavor
able statement of the federal reserve

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."

There was a disposition to buy bogs
“straight out" on the Tuesday market,
but there was about the usual difference ;
iu prices, according to average weight, 1
and it was finally admitted that hist
Friday's price was duplicated as nearly
as possible without resorting to scale
weights in all cases. 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. Na
tive lambs thut sold its high as $18.50
and fat ewes at $9.50 down were steady.

Wisconsin Raises
Big Crop of Onions
“Racine. 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 future development in onions is
also seen In the area in central Wlscoo

Pay SIOO a Month to
Western Farm Hands
LINCOLN. Neb., Feb. 24.—The SIOO a
month hired man In Nebraska has ar
rived. 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.
