\ Page Twelve THE PENN Y A N EXPRESS, PENN Y A N , N. Y ., THURSDAY, DECEMBER 13, 1923. Yates County Farmers! We Wonder Why Clover \ — Gold Bricks To deceive American farmers* red clover seed, grown in Italy, ana other Mediterranean countries, is be­ ing shipped to the United States from Germany. This misleads buy­ ers to believe that such seed was grown in Northern Europe and to offer it for sale as being harti> enough to withstand our severe northern winters. The College has demonstrated such seed to be worse than worthless on New York farms. The European dealers no doubt are trying to take advantage of the poor American red clover seed crop which was less than half, in 1923, what it was in 1922. Even the few growers who do have seed are holding it for a higher price. j Someone has said one good Amer­ ican dollar was worth more than a manure-spreader full of German marks* The money of other Europ­ ean- nations is also below par. Europe is dumping commodities on American markets to get Uncle Sam’s 100 per cent dollars. The countries about the Mediter- Sea have had a bumper crop o f red clover seed- and we are sur- to sow some of this unadapted seed “ if we don't watch out” . And even if we do watch out, we can't tell Italian seed from our best Northern grown seed when we hold it in out hands and examine it. Such seed may look just as bright and clean and free from weeds as the best hardy-domestic. Non-hardy seed usually germinates and grows well the first summer, BUT, after the first winter, the ground is likely to be covered with dead plants. Seedsmen realize that the f armt. r will feel that he “ has been done” il he finds great bare spots in his clover field the following April, so some of them mix in some good northern-grown with the non-hardy seed. This is known as ‘ blending” and at best is a questionable practice- Then the farmer gets a fair crop and blames the winter weather for its rot coining up to expectations. Some of us have always nought rur clover seed form Tom, Dick or Harry* but we can't afford to take a chance this year. The success or fail­ ure of the 1925 red clover crop is postiviely determined by the source of seed planted in tiie spring of 1924 Home-grown, hardy seed, unadultei - ated, insures success—H. B. Harwig, department of agronomy, New York State College of Agriculture. The worthlessness of Italian grown seed has been proven in Yates County by a test in co-operation with Otis Brayman of Milo. Where this clover was sown in one corner of his field the winter weather entirely killed out the clover* The remainder of the field, sown with Northern grown seed, showed a fine stand of clover in the spring. --------- ♦ --------------------------------- Helleva Good Ford The “ Minnesota” is the largest freighter flying the American flag and has been puchased by the Ger­ mans* and is being delivered. Mr. Cabcock will be three weeks on the trip over, landing in the north of Germany, and will return on a pas­ senger ship. Drivers of automobiles refuse to use dimmers on their headlights when driving in the village? It may not be generally known that in some cities a driver who persists in driving wth the headlights on full is liable to arrest and a fine. There are no streets in the business section of this village which are so dimly lighted out that drivers can see with dimmers on.

The location is an iso­ lated one and pains were taken to make the gathering inconspicuous. It became known, however, and about 20 men went down to the house* secured a check on the licence numbers of the automobiles parked there and today sent the numbers to the county clerk's office for iden­ tification and then went back to the > house and quietly waited outside- As soon as those at the meeting learned they were being watched the meeting broke up. Efforts were made by those leaving the house to cover their faces and avoid lecogui- tion, but a number of the men were followed to their homes. Nearly all wTere identified.

FRED E. WINTERS U N L O A D I N G Tax Exemptions a Sensational Reductions in all lines o f High-grade Shoes and Oxfords—to be sold at the astonishing prices quoted below Considerable ch$er is found in the i eminder of the State Tax Commis­ sion that the personal exemption.- for this year under the New York State Law now equal the Federal exemptions- Both its residents and its non­ residents subject to this levy may take o^ $2500 where their net in­ come as married persons living to­ gether or as heads of families is $50u0 or less When the net income goes over that amount, the exemp- ton like tne federal law is reduces to $2000. The New York State legislature, however, following ihe government act, did not boost the exemption for single persons or married persons living apart which stays at the old amount of $1000. Doubling up of the exemption for dependents from $200 to $400 is per milted in all cases. Warning is given that these big­ ger exemptions no not change that part of the law which requires ail married persons living together to file returns if their combined net income is $2000 or over and all single persons—even though heads of families—who have net incomes of $1000 or over. It is estimated that the State* un­ der these higher exemptions w ill, — show a loss in revenue of $2,630,000 | g on a normal $30,000,000 yield under the old rates and exemptions. If the normal yield should swell $35,000,000; the loss would be over $3-000 000. This reduced return is mainly brought about by the fact that as the yield increases, the num­ ber of taxpayers becomes greater in the classes lower than $5000* Putting the -^ect of the change in a simple story, the married man with two children who paid $9.09 under the old exemptions on $3300.00 net income, now pays no tax, out files a return and nine dollars lower lax is asked from such married persons who earn more than $3300 and not more than $5000. --------- + --------- A woman member of a Pittsburgh jury refused to be won over by the other jurors and so kept them in session all night and a portion of the day.
