AUSTIN, Texas, June 8.—The Third
Court of Civil Appeals Wednesday
upheld the incorporation of the town
of Fredericksburg' which, at the time
of the election in 1928, was the larg-
est unincorporated town in the United
States. The court affirmed the case
of Stein et al vs. Fredericksburg, the
.second time the case had been ap-
pealed. The first was from the trial
court’s action in sustaining the town’s
demurrers to the complaining peti-
tion. The higher courts sent the case
back on the ground that questions of
fact should be determined. On the
trial of the case on its merits Fred-

WASHINGTON, June 8.—If you
are a married business man with one
child and a net income of $6,000, the
new federal taxes will cost you some-
thing like $235 a year.
That sum is arrived at pn the basis
of figures used by members of the
house and senate when the new rates
were before Congress, taking $6,000
as a starting point so as to allow a
man euogh money to buy some of
the taxed luxuries.
If you are that $6000 man, your
exemptions will be $2900, including
$400 for your son or daughter. The
income tax on the remaining $3100
will be $124 against the old levy of
The putompbile ypu buy that the
manufacturer sells for $600 will cost
you $18 in taxes. Unless the car
comes fully equipped, you’ll probably
buy a couple of bumpers and a spare
tire costing $30, on which you will be
taxed 60 cents.
You’ll use, say 700 gallons of gaso-
line a year, if you take any trips, on
which ypu’ll pay $7. If you use 30
gallops of lubricating qil, you’ll give
another $1,20 tp the Trappy, Ypur
tires anti tubes will cost $1 p year
If your wife gets a $200 fur coat,
that’s another $20 tax, Should you
by chance indulge in beer making,
using brewers wort, the National
Treasury collects another $3.
Then your wife’s perfumes, cold
creams, powder, rouge and what not
will cost another $.3 in taxes, and if
you buy her a $50 watch the Gov-
ernment gets $5 more.
When your radio gets fuzzy and
you buy a new one for $75, your tax
is $3.75, and if you put in an electri-
cal refrigerator that the manufac-
turer sells for $100 you are out an
additional $5 in taxes.
If you play golf and your wife and
child take part in any sports, $50 a
year isn’t too much to expect to
spend on sporting equipment.' The
tax on that is $5.

THREE ARRESTED FOR
Sheriff A. R. Harvey and his
deputies arrested three men Wed-
nesday near Chappel and they were
charged with the theft of automobile
tires and were given thirty days in
jail on the charge. Three casings
were taken from a truck belonging
to Oscar' Lively at Nix and the offi-
cers picked up a trail which they
followed and finally located some
men cutting cedar on the Colorado
river and connected them with the
theft to which they pleaded guilty.

are from every State.
A few had left Wednesday, but the
vast majority was determined to stay
and see the outcome of the vote Mon-
day when the bonus^payment pro-
posal comes before the house.
A considerable section of the tat-
tered army is still firm in its deter-
mination to “stay until 1945” unless
the bonus is paid.
A move to reduce the interest rate
of bonus loans, which is rapidly con-
suming many of the certificates, was
made Wednesday in the house.'
The ways and means committee ap-
proved the Bacharach bill which
would make the interest rate on the
certificates 4 per cent. The veterans
administration estimated this would
cost the Government $140,000,00/3 be-
fore the certificates mature in 1945.
