It was on this excess that tie surtax became operative on a graduated scale, which attained as hlfh ss 65 per cent on a profit of 1100.000. But, on the other hand, the tax vu considerably less on an annual dividend of $50,000, between $5,000 and $8,000, and it is readily seen that a community of this nize has ., Tare, nnmhpr romiTie in un- wvb n ' tor the surtax regulations In any jreat amounts.
