COLLECTOR OF INTERNAL REVENUE, GIVS OUT INTERVIEW CONCERNING . LAW EFFECTIVE MAY 1. Jacksonville, May 2. (Special) James . M. Cathcart, collector of in ternal revenue for Florida, gives the press the following interview regard ing the "luxury- tax: "The commissioner of internal rev enue sent me the following statement In the nature of a tentative ruling with reference to the collection of the luxury tax under section 904 of the revenue act of 1918: The sprinted regulations relating thereto will be issued within the next ten days. ''Section 904 of the revenue act of 1918 imposes a. tax upon certain arti cles sold at hetail in excess of a speci fied price.. The tax is to be paid by the consumer to the vendor and can not be absorbed by the vendor in the sale of the article. This tax has been referred to as the "luxury tax." It is effective on May 1, 1919, and the rate " of tax is 10 per cent of the amount paid in excess of the price specifically mentioned in the act when such article is sold by the vendor. - "Merchants will be required to ren der returns covering the tax collected during a given month and although their records shall be kept in such manner as to indicate the tax received on each sale, the form of monthly re turn required of them shall show sim ply the aggregate amount of tax col lected Under each subdivision of the section of the law; that is, the total amount of tax collected on sales of men's and boys' hats, under one head, and women's and misses hats, bon nets, hoods, etc, under another head, and so on, following the classification by subdivision of the section. This monthly return must be sworn to by the vendor and filed by him with the collector for the district in which the vendor has his principal place of busi ness. The return must be filed with on or before the last da'y of the month following the one In which the sale3 are made. In other words, the return covering sales made in May must be filed with the collector and the taxes paid on or before the last day of June. "The tax . Under this section is measured by the price for which the article is sold. It is on the actual sales price and not on the list price, where r .RED) If that differs from the sale price. The tax cannot be included la the price, but must be billed under a separate item.-.. .. "If articles are purchased subject to tax and are subsequently returned to the vendor, the sale being rescinded, no tax is payable. If the tax has been paid it should be refunded to the pur chaser and the vendor may take credit therefor against the tax in the sub sequent monthly . return. If a taxable article is sold by the vendor and later exchanged for another article . at a higher price,, the purchaser paying the difference, the purchaser must pay the tax on the second sale and the vendor shall give credit or refund to the pur chaser of the tax paid on each of the taxable articles returned and take a credit therefor and include it in his subsequent monthly return. The tax, attaches when the article is sold, that is to say. when the title to it passes from the vendor to the purchaser. - "Ordinary repairs or alterations are not taxable. The unit of measurement in determining the price for the pur pose of the tax on carpets and rugs is the square yard. All lineal yardage, therefore, must be converted into square measure, and fringe will not be considered In computing the yard age. .. ': ' "Themethod of keeping accounts by merchants shall disclose the total num ber and amount of -sales of each of the taxable articles, including any credits or refunds, and the - books of every person liable to tax shall be open at all times for the inspection of examining revenue officers. "In computing the tax a fractional part of a cent Shall be disregarded un less it amounts to one-half of a cent or more, in which case it shall be in, creased to a full cent."

"Swat the Spy!" is the attrv tlve title of their most recent triump A well-sustained and highly plau; ble plot is gradually unfolded, involv ing: the determined attemps of a grov of kultur lovers to seize or destroy valuable secret formula. This forma is the invention of the childres father, and the clever way in whic the kids thwart all the conspirator plans, and turn them to their discoir flture, must really be seen to be a; predated. Many other laugbable situaiior keep arising continually in the pic ture -such as the children's droll a: tempt to trade off their newly 'arrive baby brother at a Liberty Bond noe ing, their comical efforts to enlist ti the war when peace ceases at hom and their deadly feud with a pompom butler and a tyrannous cook. A number of pathetic touches tfe ring true, .- and a series of power!:. patriotic appeals, showing the fatili:;' of the German terroristic campai'r over here, and ther united determina tion of all ages and classes to striv for complete victory, are notable fea: ures of this big play.
