Dantmry, May 21 Edwin Lindners.
14-years-old son of Mrs. Charles Fin
gal of New Preston, died in th hos
pital here yesterday from the effects
of a gunshot wound In the forehead.
The boy fell while running down a
hlH near his homo, carrying a shot
gun, and the gun was discharged, the
shot tearing a hole in his head.
Inquiries received by the Bureau
of Internal Revenue and Collectors
indicate a misunderstanding on the
part of not only a large portion of
the public, but dealers themselves
regarding the tax on ' soft drinks,
which became effective May 1. Re
ports reaching the Bureau are that
some dealers are not collecting the
tax w.iiie others are charging extra
pennies for drinks which are not
taxable.
To correct these mistakes the Bu
reau has issued the following offi
cial statement relating to the collec
tion of the tax:
The tax is one cent for each ten
cents or fraction therof on the amount
paid at soda fountains, Ice cream
parlors or similar places of business
on soft drinks, ice cream, ice cream
sundaes, "or similar articles of food
or drink when sold for consumption
in or In proximity to such place of
business." The purchaser can not
escape the tax by stepping outside
of the place where sold to consume
his soft drlng or ice cream. Ice
cream In cones is taxable, because
sold under conditions which indicate
that it is to be consumed "in or fa
proximity to the place of business."
When ice cream is sold under con
ditions which indicate that it would
usually be consumed in or in proxim
ity to the premises, the fact that the
purchaser does not consume it there
but carries it away, does ont render
it free from the tax. Ice cream sold
in boxes and ice cream sodas or other
soft drinks sold in pitchers or buckets
for home consumption are exempt.
Sales of soft drinks, ice cream
and similar articles of food e.nd drink
in hotels, restaurants, cafterias and
club houses are not taxable unless
sold separate and apart from meals
If ice cream or a soft drink is the
only refreshment ordered in such
places the tax applies. Such sales
at soda fountains are taxable even
though sold as part of the meal.
In general such beverage common
ly known as soft drinks wtilch are
compounded or mixed at a soda foun
tain are subject to the tax. Illustra
tive of these are orangeade, lemon
ade, pineapple juiee. coca cola, ror:
beer, moxie, phosphates, fruit anJ
flavoring syrups mixed with plain or
carbonated watfit milk shakes, malt
ed milk shakes, cream and egg
shakes, ice cream. Ice cream sodas.
ice cream sundaes, ice cream sand
wiches, and flavored ices.
Certain drinks often sold at soda
fountains, ice cream parlors and
similar places of business are not
taxable. Such bevesages as hot beef
tea. coffee, tea, buttermilk, milk, hot
chocolate or cocoa, hot clam bisque,
hot tomato bisque, and hot tomato
bullion. Medicinal preparations such
as bromo-seltzer. citrate of magnesia,
rochelle salts, seitlets powders, bicar
bonate of soda, aromatic spirits of
ammonia, epsom salts, essence of pep
sin, etc., sold at the fountain also
escape the "aoft drink" tax. No tax
applies on the sale of beverages such
as ginger ale, root beer, moxie, min
eral water, etc., when served ' from
closed containers, because a manufac
turer's tax on such drinks has al
ready been levied.
The tax Is on the whole amount
of the purchase price. Thus, if a pur
chaser who "ireats" a friend orders
two sodas at the same time, each sel
ling for 15 cents, the tax is 3 cents,
and not 4 cents. If, however, he buys
one 15 cent soda and immediately
thereafter purchases another 15 cent
drink, the tax is two cents on each
sale. Dealers are advised to guard
separate customers against pooling
their purchase to escape the tax. The
penalty for willfully attempting to
evade the tax is a fine of not more
than 10,000 or not more than one
year's Imprisonment, or both. to
gether with the cost of prosecution.
Sales of ice cream and soft drinks
by rell-rious, charitable or educational
societies on special occasions such as
church festival, picnics, etc., are not
taxable. Such sales in stands, and
booths at agricultural fairs, racing
parks, public exhibitions, circuses,
shows and similar places are taxable.
At the summer hotels nowadays
you have to tip the servants in or
der to g-et them not to ha.ng Around
and try to do things for you that you
don't want done.

Herman Not To
Blame For Death
of Dennis Sullivan

onerated of blame for the death of
Hariri is L. Sullivan of this city by a
f'-ding made .public 'by Coroner Phe
la:i today. Sullivan received fatal in
juries while riding in the side car of

Fairfield. Herman turned eniddenly
to avoid a motor truck and Sullivan
fell from the car, fracturing his ekull.

pital where he died the next day. The

in the same direction, but he found
there was no criminal liability on
Hemman's part.
