INCOME TAX- OVER BILLION
Government 1921 Collections Amount
to Total of $1,420,962,438.
Washington, D. C. The treasury
collected income and profit taxes from
7,018,573 individuals and firms for the
calendar year 1021, receipts from this
source totaling $1,420,902,438.
A statistical report made public
by the bureau of internal revenue
shows that such revenue decreased
approximately $1,250,000,000 from 1920
while there was a reduction of about
600,000 in the number of persons and
firms making returns.
Of the total returns filed 6,602,173
were by individuals.
Reductions in the amounts of taxes
paid and the number of returns filed
as compared with 1920 extend all
along the line from the persons pay
ing taxes on income of $1000 to. the
maximum class of one million dol
lars or more. There were only 21
in the latter class in 1921, while "in
1920 the records show 33 persons ad
milted having incomes of "one mil
lion dollars and over."
Detailed figures disclosed that 12 of
the 21 paid taxes on incomes between
$1,000,000 and $1,500,000, and none re
ported incomes between a million and
u half and two million.
Washington, D. C. Statistics Just
Completed by the internal revenue
bureau for the year 1921 shows that
taxes were paid to the federal govern
ment on hut one net income of $5,
000,000 or more. That income was
not. reported by John D. Rockefeller.
In fact, if statistics count for anything,
the net income turned in by Mr. Rocke
feller for 1921 was only somewhere
between $1,000,000 and $1,500,000.
This fact caused much surprise be
en use- it. had generally been conceded
that one of four net incomes of $5,
000,000 or more returned the previous
year, 1920, represented Mr. Rocke
feller's income. Henry Ford and his
wife and Mr. Ford's son Edsel Ford,
and his wife, wero supposed to have
turned in two of the other record in
comes in 1920. The identity of the
fourth Income return was In doubt. It
Is pretty well established by the sla
tisticiil tables issued recently that the
incomes of the' Fords, father and son,
dropped to about $3,000,000 to $4,000,-
000 each in 1921, as compared with
over $5,000,000 in 1920.
Whilo the business depression In
1521 cut deeply Into practically all of
1 lie huge personal incomes and also
reduced net laxahlo incomes returned
by corporations by more than $3,500,
000.000 from tho total reached in 1920,
the almost sensational fall in the
Kerlvi teller iiicomo from more than
$5,000,000 to not more than $1,500,000
was a subject of much comment. Of
course the actual income of Air. Rocke
feller largely exceods either of the
figures given and it should he under-

government statistics does not include
income from tax exemptions and other

London. France, Relgium and Italy

for a reparation conference, with the
understanding that it shall take the
form of a committee of experts under

America's decision to lencl her ad

out of the slough of depression.
Secretary Hughes' prompt and de

given impetus to a situation which has
heretofore been marked by utter in

officials begin to see a rift in the

l';i ris, Brussels and Rome and before
it became known late Saturday after-
non at the British foreign office that
(Trance, Belgium and Italy had all ac

conference of experts.

have preferred a full conference of
ministers to liquidate tho reparation

agree to any reduction of the Ger

conference in May, 1921.
Tho communique insisted that a
committee of experts, organized with
in tho scope of the reparations com
mission to investigate Germany's ca
pacity for payment, has no authority
to make any reduction in Germany's
debt. It srid it considered that such
a committee would be practically a

experts of the reparations commission.

WHY FIXE TREES SIGH
T ITTLE BROWN BEAR lay watch
ing the stars twinkle and wink at
him through the brandies of the pine
trees that grew Just outside the door
of the cave where he and Mother Bear
lived. Little Brown Bear was not
sleepy, for he had taken a very long
afternoon nap. But he meant to In
still, just as his mother had told him
to do, and not bother anyone by talk
ing or moving about. He could hear
his mother snoring at the other end
of the cave.
By and by the wind began to blow
and the pine tree began to sigh and
toss its branches. Little Brown Bear
liked to hear the pine tree sigh. Its

It often lulled Little Brown Bear to
But tonight Little Brown Bear was
not sleepy. So lie just lay quietly

"I wonder what makes the pine tree
sigh," he said at last to himself.
He lay quiet a little while longer.
Then slowly and as quietly as a
clumsy little brown bear can move he
got up and walked out of the cave.
"What makes the pine tree sigh?"
he asked of a little worm that glowed
In the dark.
But the little worm was stupid and
could not help Little Brown Bear.
Little Brown 'Bear heard a whir
above his head and he looked up and
saw a but Hying about.
"Hello, bat," he cried. "Come down
here a minute, will you?"
That bat flew down and lighted on
a bush by the side of Little Brown
"You ought to be at home and In
bed," said the bat, who was old,
"Well, then," said Little Brown
Bear, "so ought you."
"Ho, I always stay up at night," said
the bat. "You see, I sleep all day."
"Well, don't be cross, please," said
Little Brown Bear. "I want to ask
you a question. What makes the pine
The bat listened. The pine tree
close by was tossing its brandies back
and forth and was sighing softly.
The bat thought a moment "Why,
it's the wind that makes the pine tree
Sigh. Good-night, Little Brown Bear."
"Oh, wait a minute," suid Little
Brown Bear. "I want to ask you
more questions. Why does ,the wind
make the pine tree sigh?"
"Oh, because It does," snapped the
bat, getting cross, for he wanted to
be off on his nightly travel.
"Yes, but why does it?" still ques
tioned Little Brown Bear, not at all
satisfied with the answers.
"Well, I guess It is because it hain't
any fur coat or comfortable cave to
sleep In. If you hadn't any, maybe
ybu would sigh, too," said the bat, and
off he flew.
Little Brown Bear was nil alone.
The wind had blown the clouds until
the stars were hidden. The pine tree
sighed louder and louder and then the
other trees began to sigh, too.
Little Brown Bear thought of his
cave and his mother and off he shuf
fled for home and snuggled down In
Ids bed of leaves close to his mother.
"I guess Mr. Bat Is right," he said
sleepily, 'if I didn't have a nice fur
coat and a nice cave to sleep in, I
guess I would sigh like the pine tree."
"What are you talking about?" asked
his mother, but Little Brown Bear was

BEULAH Is one of the oldest and

names. It means "married" and is the
contracted form of the title "Land of

In Isaiah : "Thou Shalt no more he
termed Forsaken ; neither shall thy
land any more be termed Desolate;
but thou snalt he called Hephzibah

When the vogue for religious names
passed at the outset of the Twentieth
century, Peulah suffered a temporary
loss of popularity. But of recent
years. It was thought sufficiently
quaint and old-fashioned to undergo
revival. Among the deeply religious,
of course, It has flourished uninter
ruptedly, being handed down from gen
eration to generation to insure the per
petuation of its heritage. It is regard
ed as an especially lucky name and
one which promises material, as well
as spiritual, riches.

AT YOLK WEDDING
QFTEN it really seems as if the
V least Important personage con
nected with the preparation for a
large and festive wedding is the
bridegroom. For one thing, strict so
cial usage says that a bridegroom
should not see his bride on the day
of the wedding until the ceremony or
immediately before it, so usually he
remains at his own home, or a guest
nt the home of a friend or relative of
the bride If he is marrying a young
woman In another town, until all
preparations for the wedding have
been made. If any last-minute ar
rangements relative to the sending
of luggage have to be. made, they are
attended to by his best man, who Is
a veritable go-between for the bride
groom and the bride's family on the
day of the wedding.
Before the day of the wedding the
bridegroom-to-be should make Inquir
ies of ills bride concerning her bou
quet and that of her attendants, for
It is the privilege of the bridegroom to
order these. He should never do It,
however, without first consulting the
bride, as the choice would naturally
depend somewhat on the style of her
wedding dress and the bridegroom's
flowers would decidedly depend en
tirely on the color of their frocks. The
bride's bouquet and the bouquets of
all her attendants had best be deliv
ered at the home of the bride the
morning of the wedding, but the bride
groom should see that each bouquet
bears one of his personal cards.
Unless the bridegroom is married in
the suit in which lie wishes to travel
later, he remembers to send to the
home of the bride a suitcase contain
ing his traveling suit and various
uressing accessories. The bridegroom, :
as well as the bride, makes a speclai
POiat to dress for the departure in !
an inconspicuous manner and would
therefore lay aside the dress clothes
light gloves, etc., for a get-up more :
suitable for traveling.
Before the wedding the bridegroom
should put the fee for the clergyman
hi a small white envelope and give It
to his best man, who gives it back
to the bridegroom after the ceremony, '
when he gives It to the clergyman
p course In an Inconspicuous manner.
Here Is something that the bridts j
groom doesn't always remember to do,
but It Is something that is quite neces
sary, and that Is to bid the mothr- '
and father of the bride good-by ami'
to compliment the mother for the wed
ding entertainment, for he must re-j
member that she Is his hostess and I
that he Is the most honored of her i
