A single person is exempt from paying all income tax only if they have an income less than $1,000 a year. A married person is exempt if they do not have over $2,000 a year in come, with $200 a year added for each child they have who is 18 years of age or under and who are dependant upon them.

Mr. Rock efeller had saved $800 and his father lent him $1,000 at ten per cent in terest to enable him to supply his share of the capital. "I went out and visited farmers and others all over the adjoining territory talked with them, told them we would be glad of an opportunity to serve them at any time, did not ask them to change their existing connections, but left a card in case they would like to get in touch with us at some future time.” Mr. Rockefeller re counted. ‘‘The results of this person al solicitation were far beyond our expectations. Business poured in to us in such volume that we did $500,000 worth the first year.” It was before Mr. Rockefeller was 21 years of age that he became inter ested in oil. Several refineries were started in Cleveland to prepare crude oil for illuminating purposes and Mr. Rockefeller, already a shrewd business man, always on the lookout for opportunities, foresaw that this new industry possessed unlimited po.

He made investigations and calculations. He grasped the fact; that here was a substance which ! could probably be brought within the use of every household. He lost no time in helping to establish the oil refining firm of Andrews, Clark & Co., in 1862, of which Clark and Rockefeller were the financial and business managers. And three years later he sold out his interest in the commission business to M. B. Clark and bought out the interests of his partners in Andrews, Clark & Co., and joined with Samuel Andrews to continue the business under the firm name of Rockefeller and Andrews. 'We realized then that here was something the whole world would want, but we had no idea our busi ness would develop into the propor tions it did,” Mr. Rockefeller modest ly confessed. ‘Indeed, I may say that, while 1 was always ambitious and always willing to work hard, I had no vision as big as the subse quent realities.’’ How to procure capital and credit to handle the enormous volume of business which Mr. Rockefeller's en terprise attracted was his hardest problem during those creative years. Banking facilities were limited and the maximum his own bank could furnish was entirely insufficient for his rapidly growing needs. In one - i.i__.. Rockefeller on the street and grave ly told him that his borrowings had become so heavy that Mr. Rockefeller must come and talk the situation over with the directors. “I'll be de lighted to meet the directors,” Mr. Rockefeller replied, “for I need a great deal more." Mr. Rockefeller added, "He never sent for me.”—B. C.

This is a valu able crop for most Arkansas farmers because it not only furnishes great quantities of feed but it can be fol lowed by a crop like cow peas which will help build up the soil and furnish an abundance of hay or can be plowed under. The expeias with the College of Agriculture urge a thorough preparation of the seed bed and the use of the ur:!l in plant ing if possible. Planting after Octo ber 20 in northern Arkansas and No vember 1 in southern Arkansas has often brought large yields but it is not considered as safe as earlier planting. * * * * DECREASE DAMAGE TO CORN BY WEEVIL Harvesting should have been done by this time to protect corn from weevil. However. It is still possible to decrease the damage which may result from the work of these pests. Husk the corn in the field and 75 per cent of the weevil will be left there. It will also pay to divide the wagon bed and put the infested ears in one half and the sound ears In the other half. When placing in the crib the infested ears should be put in front so they will be fed first. Jladly infested or “mealy” ears should be fumigated or disposed of by feeding as soon as possible. * * * * HAVE TWO LITTERS OF PIGS A YEAR Breed your gilts and sows so they can have two litters of pigs every year and breed them so as to take the greatest advantage of the green pasture it is possible to take. It is probably best to fix the breeding season so that pigs will be farrowed sometime from the middi-; or Sep tember to the last of October and from the middle of February to the last of March. Now is the time to plan on breeding for spring pigs. • * * * SAVE THE SWEET POTATO Your sweet potatoes are too valu able to let them rot. The home po tato hill properly managed w *1! be alright for small quantities of pi tatoes but the inexpensive store house is better for large quantities ond will more than pay for Itself In the potatoes it keeps from rotting. In addition to proper care in digging and sorting, ventilation and the tem perature have much to do with the keeping of sweet potatoes. How to control these features is discussed and the various sto.ngs methods given in bulletin 124 issued by the College of Agriculture at Fayette ville. Write for this bulletin today. * * * * A BOLL WEEVIL IDEA EXPLODED Much has been written about the cintrol of the boll weevil by fall plowing, but George O. Becker, State Entomogollst with the University of Arkansas, says: “If cotton stalks can be uprooted and plowed under deeply by No vember 1, some good Will be done in the northern part of the state and a great deal more in the southern part toward the control of the boll weevil. However, after November 1 this method will not pay in Arkansas be. cause practically all of the weevils have left the cotton by that time and are hibernating in the trash and rubbish along the fence rows, the ditch banks and the road sides. Destroy as far as possible those hiding places and you will not only get large numbers of the boll weevil but all kinds of injurious insects. Plow under the trash and rubbish as far as possible. Never burn any thing that will make plant food.’’ NEGLIGENCE The old miser in the story, who dropped a flve-dollar gold piece in the plate at church, mistaking it for a nickle, could get no great satis faction out of the deacon, but he was not the man to give up easily. Accordingly he sought legal advice with a view to instituting a law suit, j But the lawyer whom he consulted was one of those rare and gifted souls who would rather be witty than rich, or almost anything else for that matter.
