Ip vogue for years by the federal authorities un­ der the federal Income tax law. For example, thè placing of a series of win­ dows In a barn Improves the property, at would also-the-building of a new. fence around thè form. Neither of these exp -nses are those Incurred In the courser of ordinary business any more than a tractor or Expenses Allowed. Ordinary expenses, of course. In­ cluding the cost of shovels, rakes and other small tools, hire of labor, produce bought and used up In the meals fur­ nished to laborers, are business ex­ penses. Equally ns well, the farmer should write off ns an expense amounts paid out for manure, commercial fer­ tilisers, lime, raw rock, phosphate. Gasoline and oil used In machinery are proper deductions! and If necessary to have any farm machinery or en auto­ mobile used entirely for farm purposes repaired, such amounts are proper de­ ductions. Whore the automobile Is used six days of the week off the fprm and on Sunday the farmer takes/ his family on a well deserved recreation trip, only the proportion of the amounts paid for gasoline, oil and re­ pairs which can reasonably be assign­ ed to business purposes can be de­ ducted.

G REAT MASS OF PROOF Reports of 90,000 Cases of Kidney - Trouble, Some of tfiem Cat­ taraugus Cases. As a result of the campaign now being made by the. Interclmjsb World Movement the combined Protestant churches of America will provide many more hospitals, clinics nn<l> homes for the aged and Infirm. An, interesting feature o f these Protestant hospitals will be free treatment for ministers, ns recent surveys made by the interchurch organization have made the need for special dispensa­ tions very obvious. The following startling facts were divulged as to the average salaries In the various denominations. Starting with the highest, the average for Epis­ copal ministers Is $1,242 ; the average for PrFsbyterlan (North}., $1,177; for .the United Presbyterians, $1,096; for the Reformed Churcli« (Dutch), $1,170: for the Methodist Episcopal (North), $1,176; Congregational, $1,042, and for the Baptists (Northern), $950. With government experts nnnou: Ing that $1,500 Is the lowest siilary upon which a family can be decently mnlntnihed ajid suggestingintlgets for none lower, ministers have a discour­ aging outlook. Such things as- hospi­ tal bills are almost Impossible to meet, and yet every norma) family has-aonie illness In Its mijlst every year. Ac­ cordingly the Interchurch Movement, while on its way to obtain higher aver­ ages in salaries, will assist by provid­ ing free care in Its Institutions. - ■ 0 — — — sBSBaiHasaaiEBSfa Conductors - Motormen Wanted at Akron Ohio Conductors and motormen are wanted immediately at Akron, Ohio, because of the number of big, new cars being added to the Company’s service.
