It takes everybody's income If it Is over $2000 a year, or over $1000 In the case of the unmarried. The tax in at least 0 per cent, for the amouit over $2000; and for large incomes there is a "surtax" which Increases at a great rate as the in come rises. The (Secretary of the Treasury calls tt the "Victory Tax." A million-dollar income is 200 times as great as a $5000 income; but he who gets it pays not 200 times more talc but nearly 4000 times!

NO "GRUB STAKE" NEEDEO WHEN "GRUB' PETERS OUT Bur) Expert Says Some Grubs Are "Good Eatln"' When Made Into Salad or Broth The possibility of white grubs as "grub" for mankind formed t' o theme ot a paper read by Dr. L. O. Howard, chief of the Bureau of Entomology, before a meeting ot the Biological So ciety of Washlagton D. C. Not only is the prejudice against orms and Insects as food perfectly unreasonable according to Dr. How ard, but it Is safe to assume that thev have a positive food value. He and other Investigators in tho department ot agriculture recently partook of a Hucculent white grub salad and a deli clous broth made of grubs, and found them most palatable, the broth being particularly appcttzing. Following a more or less Jocular dls russlon with Assistant Secretary V;oo man of the department of agriculture, regarding tho possible new food sup plies necessitated by the war condi tions, Dr. Howard said the ever-abundant white grub was suggested to his mind. Accordingly, there was collected near Madison, Wis., a quantity of lucnnosierni larvae, wnicn were wasn cd and salted away in a large glass Jar and sent to Dr. Howard to bo eat en. Tho skins of the grubs, which were lough, were rejected by the diners, but 'no meat proper Is said to have been pronounced exceedingly good.
