Investigators Announce Distribution of Income by States New York, Aug. 20.?Illinois with $4,962,000,000 as the annual aggregate income of its citizens leads the North-Central States, according to compilations which have been announced at the headquarters of the National Bureau of Economic Research, New York. Illinois receives seven and one-half percent of the nation's income, a figure which is exceeded only by Ne.w York and Penn' sylvania. Pennsylvania ranks second with $5,958,000,000, while New York tops the list with a little more than $9,000,000,000. These data are taken from advance sheets of a report entitled "Distribution of Income by States," which will be issued by ^Bureau of Economic Reexhau8tive^n^st^c^ k / tion of "Income in the United States ' upon which the Research Staff of the Bureau, untjer Dr. Wesley C. Mitchell, has been engaged for more than a year. Tha TT"oo?- r> 1 1 oi-i ? uv unob-xiui bit biciuim oiaiea, Ohio, Indian, Illinois, Michigan and Wisconsin, according to the report "Distribution of Income by States,'' had in 1919 a total income of nearly $1?>,000,000,000, which was 22 per cent of the income of the entire country. At the same time their population was exactly one-flfth of the total. As a group, therefore, their average per capita income of $684 was some< what higher than that of the whole country which was $627, though less than the $783 average in the Eastern states, and the figure of $796 enjoyed by the Pacific states. The Middle Atlantic states, New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, taken as a group have over one-fourth of the national income, with the EastNorth Central group and the New England states h%v$ more than onehalf of the total. The balance of income between that which, is due to agriculture and to other sources is almost exactly the same as in the East-North Central States as for the * entire country, about one-sixth. This means that as v n group these states are practically self-supporting. In contrast, the was aTrokeF DOWN WOMAN Then I BeganTaking LydiaE.

The Western states, and most of the ^ Southern states, get about one-third ( of their income from agriculture, and must therefore ship food exten- ? sively in exchange for manufactured ^ products. ? Detailed figures from the E.ist North Central states show that while a the aggregate income of Illinois was about $4,962,000,000, or seven and one-half percent of the nation's in come, unio came next, with $3,967,900,000, then Michigan with $2,582,- . 000,000 and Indiana and Wisconsin with less than $2,000,000,000.

X li Havana, Cuba, Aug. 20.?Increase a in the population of Cuba from 3,- 01 000,000 to 10,000,000, mainly through 0] Spanish immigrants, is one of the purpose's of the new secretary of 62 state, Carlos Manuel de Cespedcs, T former Cuban minister at Washing- 8< ton.' The secretary believes that Span- tt ish immigrants, for numerous rea- rt sons, will make the most desirable h additions # to Cuba's population, and w is holding conferences with his colleagues on the best methods to bring it these elements to the island. The necessity of checking the flow of 'a workers from Cuban cane fields to ei Spain, caused by unfavorable eondi- a Mons, and the advisability of counter- * acting the flood of Chinese, Jamai- 91 cans and Haitians is being stressed by Dr. de Ceapedes. In 1877, Thomas A. Edison spoke into the first model ?phonograph rpeaking mouthpiece: "Mary had*a \ little lamb..." Upon examination he o found identation on the tinfoil record. He replaced the record, turned the v crank and back from the cylinder J cam's a thin voice but without a word h of the recitation missing. Thus was born the phonograph.

"American officers," said the ex[hedive to an Associated Press corespondent, "instructed and trained he Egyptian military staff and i bunded military schools in Egypt j efore the French and English fcr- ] ived, and those schools were the ba- i is of. the preserft military foxee ' in ( Igypt.

These economy tejts, according to arbureter manufacturers, taught hem a lesson that will show next ^ rear in improved design, but so far here has been no revolution in engineering that is applicable to auto- 4 nobiles in general. < Racing tests, however, give a mis- < eading idea of results, for the cars , hat then average 60 miles to the gallon operate normally at about 35 niles to the gallon. The difference s explained as due to six factors: ;he use of a special gasoline; equipnent with the best .carbureter; carjureter adjustment 1 to get a weak nixture that would not serve in oriinary driving; expert driving; perfect mechanical condition of the car 4 ind special adjustment of the motor ? :or high compression, and pronounced advance of the spark. The reasons for the better results obtained by French cars over their American competitors are attributed :o several things. The American :ars were heavier, and it was mathematically certain that it would take more fuel to drive the greater weight, particularly as the American cars travelled 20 percenfcif aster. The American cars alt^ higher from the ground and ifiet greater wind resi^^^^also the American cars had motors dvhich turned When the'different ^conditions to be met by the French add the American manufacturer are considered, expertio not generally feel that there is any remarkable superiority in the French car. These differences grow )ut of costs of operation and the temperament of the ppblic. Gasoline ;osts nearly twice as mucl^in France is m the United States, and French makers, therefore, find it profitable ;o spend more money to produce an iConomieAl mntnr TKtn ?AO 111 several ways, but principally l?y havng a well-finished, small motor, with elatively high compression, turning yver at a high speed. Some small motors .make 4,000 revolutions per minute, and Trench racing cars approach 6,000 revolutions per minute, rhe French are educated to look more ;o gasoline consumption* than to speed md acceleration. They prefer a nnall motor with four apeeds, and hey aTe cpntent to shift gears constantly so as to save gasoline. Americans over here sometimes vender whether the higher original ost of French cars really offsets the saving in gasoline. French cars correspond in size, power, appearance ind ability to travel coat much more ;han their American rivals. Ameriran quantity production* accounts for much difference in price, although Itttroen, called the "Ford of France,' >y far .tlfe numerical "leader among French cars, still suffers greatly . vhen compared with American cars n price.
