War prosperity has doubled the
muinber of our citizens having an
nual incomes of $20,000 to $500,000
in the last year as compared with the
year previous, Thomas F. Logan
writes in Leslie's. The receipts from
the individual income tax show an
increase of $27,000,000, the total for
the year ended June 30 last being
$67,943,294. According to the esti
mates of the commissioner of inter
nal revenue this will be raised during
the current year to $111,750,000.
New York paid one-fourth of all the
corporation income taxes and nearly
one-half of all the direct income
taxes collected last year. In the lat
ter respect it yielded nearly five times
as much as Pennsylvania, nearly six
times as much as Illinois, more than
even times as much as Ohio. The
five states named paid four-fifths, of
the income tax collected m the Unit
ed States. One hundred and twen
ty Americans have incomes of a mil
lion or more a year, not counting in
come from capital stock. New York
supplied seventy-four and Pennsyl
yaniaten. New Jersey and Ohio fol
low, with seven and aix, respectively,
while Connecticut, Delaware and Il
linois have four each. Of the south

The above little "joker" which
