Inherllancea a a sub ject of Imagination and discussion never lose their glamour. Kor thl reason the cold statistic of the In ternal revenue bureau, recording the bare facta of the estate which are transmitted In the United 8tatea, are of absorbing Interest. No personal detail are to be found, because, un der the law, no auch fact may be di vulged. The figure do not reveal how the fortune were bequeathed. They tell no stories of newsboy who helped old Indies across rrowded ctreets and later woke up millionaires because the old ladies on their deathbeds remem bered the kind deeds. Billiona Go to Hairs. What the figure do ahow la that In the period from September, 1910, to January, 1922, the latest for which statistics have been compiled, 42.230 estate passed to fortunate heirs.

The average Individual would consider himself lucky If hla morning mall Informed libn that some old uncle' e will had left him tl.OOO. But. within this brief period enough money was Inherited to make 8.785 millionaires. The autn, If averaged among the recipient, would give each a fortune of about $200,000. which la enough for a man to live upon all hi day. Forty-two thousand person, enough to populate a good-sired city, all were made rich through Inherit ance In this period. The beneficiary doea not get the whole amount of the bequest, for the atern-visaged treasury tax-gatherer step in and take a aha re which, In some cases, la a much as one-fifth. The total tux paid on these hequeat of nearly $!),aa.iiiO.0nO was 3ol,138. 323.

For the period under review there were 5,043 such estates having a gross value of $437.471.2!K). f The statutory deductions Include charitable, pulllc and almllar be quests. These took $204,491,687 from the taxable total during the 1013-1922 period. The law provldea that prop erty recently Inherited by the dece dent and which, therefore, haa recent ly paid an Inheritance tax may be ex empted. The amount coming within thla category waa $07,582,902. Funeral expenses, debta unpaid at the time of death, and the expenses of the. administration of eatatea may be deducted from the net or taxable estate. Tbeae deduction In thla period reached a total of $1,033,408, 174. It la presumed a large part of thla bill! j waa consumed by the classification "administratis ex pense." During thla 1916-1022 period there were some estates whlcb must bave been equal to the treasure of tht Count of Monte Crlsto. Twenty-three Inheritance were In a claaa described aa "$10,000,000 and over."
