With the .number of automobile wners registering in the millions, he question of deductions for the ost of operation and maintenance f a motor car frequently is ad- resscd to the bureau of internal evenue. The purchase price of an automobile, whether it is to be used or business or pleasure, cannot be educted from gross income. If used or business, it is a capital expendi- ure; if used for 'pleasure, it is a personal expenditure--both deduc- ions being expressly prohibited by the Income-tax law. . However, there are several allowable deductions in connection with ie cost of maintenance and opera- ion of an automobile, used either or business or pleasure. If the car is used exclusively for business pur- loses, there may be deducted the intire cost of gasoline, oil, repairs, rent for garage, and'other necessary xpenses connected with operation and upkeep. Depreciation, based on he cost of the car and its estimated useful life, also is deductible. Other deductible items are as folows: Sums paid during the taxable year for registration fees, drivers' icenses, personal property tax, and municipal taxes; interest on money borrowed for the purchase of a motor car, either for business or for ileasure; loss sustained by reason if damage while car is being used or business, provided such loss is not covered by insurance or otherwise; damages paid for injury to a ledestrian, provided that the car vas being used for business at the ime, and again provided said payment was not covered by insurance or otherwise; amount paid for insurance on motor vehicles used for business purposes.

Not for many years has the de mand for draft horses been as evident as it has been this winter. Leading- breeders of Percherons declare they have never been busier with sales in all their years of experience. Charles G. Ames and Son of Mason City have benefited substantially by this increased market for drafters.;; They have recently. sold seven'HSad of^purebred Per'ctie'rdns '.a Minnesota and Iowa- buyers, One stallion was sold to Storey Brothers of Kenyon, Minn., one to A. M. Dougan of Mason City, a pair of mares to John H. Perkins of Clear e, a pair of mares to Thorsen Brothers of Ottosen and a stallion to Lynn B. Sheldon of Rockford. Mr. Ames has been raising Per- cherons for 20 years and does all his work with horses. He is a consistent exhibitor at the North Iowa : air but all his show animals do :heir share of work in the harness, grand champion mare was hitched with her mate immediate- y after the North Iowa fair last year and plowed 105 acres of dry, lard land. "We are all sold out except one stallion and one mare," says Mr. Ames, "and we do not care to sell them. Business is very good and we could have sold a great many more horses if we had had them." Iowa state college textile specialists say sunshine is the best and cheapest remover of scorch stains from cloth--simply stretch the loth in the sun and moisten from time to time. FARMERS GIVEN EXPERT ADVICE ON BEER BARLEY Northeastern Iowa Has Ideal Soil for Product Sought by Brewers. Barley for beer. That is what farmers from Cerro Gordo. and surrounding counties gathered to study at the Y. M. C. A. Thursday. Barley that will make beer, or malting barley, will attract a premium anytime of from 5 to 10 cents and has drawn a premium as high as 35 cents, Iowa State college and federal government experts stated at the meeting. The stiff of barley specialists, who gathered in Mason City for the final of three special meetings in North Iowa, consisted of R. H. Porter, extension pathologist, Iowa State college; W. P. Carroll, Chicago, United States grain supervision under the bureau of agricultural economics; L. C. Burnett, Ames, cereal breeder, Iowa State colle'ge; G. A. Dabonett, Cedar Rapids, member of government grain supervision staff, and L. H. Robbins, Milwaukee railroad grain specialist. In Best Territory, The Mason City territory is on the edge of the best barley growing soil in the United States and farmers in this section should make use of the opportunity to get the additional revenue possible through the channels of malt barley, speakers stated. The territory from here east to the river is Iowa's barley section, it was pointed out. The smaller amount of nitrogen and the greater amount of acid in the soil throughout this territory makes it ideal for growing barley. Sweet soil tends to develop the scab, which the beer interests will not have on their barley. The most important barley diseases, Mr. Porter pointed out, are scab, blight, stripe, ergot, loose smut, covered smut, bacterial blight and stem rust. He discussed various methods for eliminating these diseases and gave information on how to treat the seed. Must Be Mellow. "Good malting barley must be mellow and not hard or flinty," he declared. "It must be plump, well matured, uniform in size, and a bright creamy, ripe color. Mixtures ; oZ oats, wheat, other varieties of barley, or.; other materials difficult to remove"' are , objectionab'le and" are 'discounted at the malting barley markets. Malting barley must be free from Helminthosporium blight, scab and ergot, as well as badly weathered kernels. Broken, skinned, or heat damaged kernels are objectionable and precautions should be taken against such damage in harvesting, threshing and storing the crop. "Certain areas are adapted to producing a good, mellow malting barley. Other sections produce a hard, flinty barley not desirable for malting. Still other regions will produce good malting barley certain' years and only fair or poor malting barley in other years. Mellowness and malting quality in general are associated with climate and soil. "The grower of barley for the premium cash market should not increase his acreage without first determining whether his average soil and climatic conditions _ are suitable for producing quality malting barley. The proper rotation and preparation of the land to prevent scab and Helminthosporium blight losses is a second important consideration. And, finally, a desirable At the Hospitals Miss Marie Bauman, 20-1 Fourteenth street northeast, was admitted to the Mercy hospital Thursday for treatment.

BASEMENT OF U ROOM HOUSE IS GUTTED BY FIRE Owner Is Nearly Overcome by Smoke Before Rescued. Fire gutted the basement and badly burned the second floor of the residence of Mrs. Anne M. Quevli 224 West State street, about 5 o'clock Wednesday afternoon. The fire was well under way when the alarm was turned in to the fire department and flames had already climbed inner walls to the second floor. Mrs. Quevli had gone to the basement a short time before the fire broke out and attended to the furnace. It was believed she may have loft the damper open and the furnace became overheated. When Mrs. Quevli returned to the basement it v;as in flames. She attempted to fight the fire by throwing; palls of water on it. Four Persons in House. Miss Josie Finn, who rooms at the home, was on the second floor and when the smoke and flame began to come into her room she notified the fire department. Upon the arrival of the firemen at the scene they learned that four persons were in the house, Mrs. Quevli, Miss Finn and Mr. and Mrs. Leslie C. Lee. They did not know where these persons were and smoke was rolling out of the house. Firemen of the regular day crew entered the house to search for the persons while word was sent for three firemen who were on the off- shift. Officer Ernest H. Linnenkamp of the Mason City police denart- ment and Martin M. Carroll, a neishbor, assisted the firemen, which with the three men of the j offshift, was the equivalent of the ' number required by the state board of fire underwriters, according to smoke. Lieut. Lester J. Lindsay and Capt. Thomas Keonan brought her out of the house. Her face was burned and her hands were scorched. Mr. Lee had closed the door of his apartment to keep out the smoke but firemen were forced to combat a dense smoke in the other rooms of the house before Charles E. Rose was able to reach him with a gas mask. Rose fell through an opening in the floor in reaching the apartment. Mrs. Quelvi was the only person to receive injuries. The others in the house were found easily. Meter Melted. Firemen were unable to start fighting flames until all the persons were out of the building. By that time the flames in the basement had become so hot they melted the gas meter. The other meters of the ouse were in the attic. One booster line and three H» nch lines were laid to the fire. Vhen the flames had been extinguished the water pipes, etc., of the louse had to be shut off. The basement and top floor of the house are n bad condition although a definite estimate of the loss could not be de- cnnined immediately. The house is a 14 room struc- .ure used as a rooming house. Leland Kelly, 622 Monroe avenue | Chief Dan Shire. southeast, was dismissed from the Mercy hospital Wednesday following a minor operation. A daughter weighing 6 pounds was born to Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Nelson, Clear Lake, at the Park hospital Wednesday. METHODIST W. F. M. S.

The completion of the rearrange-, mcnt of tile subdistricts of Mason township school district, providing for five subdistricts instead of four, was announced Thursday. A new district, No. 3, was formed of the tract cast of Mason City, which formerly was a part of No. 7. No. 4 was extended southward. The other subdistricts are Nos. 8 and 9. The purpose of the rearrangement was to establish subdistricts that would meet in a better manner the needs of school patrons, it was stated. As now arranged the sub- districts are more uniform in size. The fact that there now are an odd number of subdistricts obviates the necessity for a member at large of the school board. The fact that Mason township district is U shaped on three sides of Mason City makes necessary a different arrangement of subdis- tricts than in the ordinary township. The new subdistrict plan was adopted by a unanimous vote at a meeting of the board. Garfield Breese acted as attorney for the directors.
