LEOACIES AND DISTRIBUTIVE SHARES.
Sir: Your attention is herewith
called to the provisions of tlie United
States Excise law relative to tax on
legacies and distributive shares. The
124th and lith wtions of the act of
June 30, ISOo, prervhlc that any person
or persons having In charge or trust,
as administrators, executors, or trus
tees of any legacies or distributive
shares arising from personal property
of any kind whatsoever, where the
whole amount of such personal prop
erty exceeds the sum ol one thousand
dollars in actual value, passing from
any decedent, either by will or by the
intestate laws of any .State or Territo
ry, to any person or persons, or to any
bod,y or tKxlies politic or corporate, in
trust? or otherwise, shall be subject to
a duty or tax, to be paid to the united
Suites before distribution, as follows:
First. Where the person entitled to
any beneficial interest in such prop
erty is the lineal issue or lineal ances
tor, brother or sister, to the person
who died possessed of such property,
at the rate of one dollar for each hun
dred dollars of the clear value of such
Second. Where the legatee or dis
tributee is a descendant of a brother
or sister of the ' person who died
possessed, at the rate of two dollars
for each hundred dollars of the clear
value of such interest.
Third. Where -the legatee or dis
tributee is a brother or sister of the
father or mother, or a descendant of a
brother orsister of the father or moth
er of the person who died possessed,
at the. rate of four dollars for each
hundred dollars of the clear value of
Fourth. Where the legatee or dis
tributee is a brother or sister of the
grandfather or grandmother, or a des
cendant of the brother orsister of the
grandfather or grandmother of the
person wlio died possessed, at the rate
of rive dollars for each hundred dol
lars of the clear value of such interest.
Fifth. Where the legatee or dis
tributee is in any other degree of col
lateral consanguinity than is herein
before stated, or is a stranger in blood
to the person who died possessed, oris
a body politic or corporate, at the rate
of six dollars fer eac h hundred dollars
of the clear value of such Interest. All
legacies or property passing by will, or
by the laws of any State or Territory,
to husband or wife of the person who
died possessed, are exempt from tax.
By the provisions of the act of July
13, 1S0G, anj'legacyor share of person
al property passing to a minor child of
the person who died possessed, and
who died subsequent to July 81. 1S0G,
is exemptfrom tax, unless sach legacy
or share exceeds the sum of one thou
sand dollars, in which case tlie excess
only above that sum is liable.
The return must be made and the
tax paid upon each legacy or distribu
tive share of the personal property
liable to the tax before distribution
thereof, and the administrator or exe
cutor will then file his receipt in set
tlement of his account, which will be
allowed as part payment of the nistri
butive share. Should no administra
tion be taken out, the law provides
that the party or parties shall be liable
who undertake to distribute or settle
Uy the terms of the act of July 13
1800, which apply to all cases where
the person who died possessed died
subsequently to Juh' 31, 1800, the tax
is due and paj-able whenever the par
ty interested in any legacy or distri
butive share becomes "entitled to the
possession or enjoyment thereof, or to
beneficial Interest in the profits accru
ing therefrom, and the tax is deduc
tible from the particular legacy or
share on account of which the same is

or associations, who become entitled
in possession to real estate or the in
come thereof, or to moneys to arise
from the sale of such estate, or to an
interest in personal property subject
to any trust for the Investment there
of in real estate by reason of the death
of any person, and bv all persons and
corporations who receive n gift or dis
tribution of any interest in real estate
while the grantor is living, as well as
those who receive convej'ances of real
estate which. In fact, either by the
face of the instrument itself, or by
some secret arrangement, is to take
effect upon the death of the grantor.
rso such taxes are payable by a
widow for any interest -that she may
receive from her husband, but Inter
ests in real estate passing from wife to
husband are subject to tlie succession
Ihe rates of tax are the same as
those provided for legacies or distribu
tive shares of personal property, ex
cept that in case of real estate, when
the descendant, devisee, or grantee, is
a brother or sister of tlie predecessor,
the tax is two dollars on a hundred
dollars of value.
As the United Statenhavc alien up
on both personal and real estate for
the taxes upon the same, respectively.
and as the parties liable to pay this
tax are subject to penalties, and faith
ful administration cannot be perform
ed by allowing the tax and jenalty to
be assessed by the assesor through
your neglect, which assessment. and
penalty may be larger than the facts
if known and duly returned to the
assessor would warrant, you are re
spectfully requested lo notify the as
sistant assessor of the division in
which the deceased lived at the' time
of his decease, and the assessors of
any and all districts where the real
estate of the decedent is situate, of
your appointment as executor, admin
istrator, or trustee, and to furnish
him with the amount of the inventory
and a copy of the deed or will, if any,
and with a statement of the names of
the grantees, devisees, or heirs, of the
real estate passing to them, so far as
you have knowledge of same. This
course will huve a tendency to secure
you as well as the government, and
the honest taxpayer who may be igno
rant of his duty.
The return of succession tax must
be made by the party entitled to poss
ession of the real estate, of his legal

If we are mt mistaken, be will com

soon as possible, to a solid footing of
specie values. Let those squirm who
cannot earn an honest living. Tho
producers of the country have learned
long airo that an Inflated currency
means low prices for everything they
sell, and high prices for everything:
they bny. The pricrs of farmers
prod nee never rise with inflatioasf
currency in proportion to price f
other commodities, and a false system
of values simply robs the farmer" The
majority of them have discovered tho
fact, and are looking with hopefulness
to the Administration to bring uba-k

We have faith that the President,
who knows how the producers of the
West are pluudercd and why, will
smash thfse rings. He has given tho

Jut he can break up gold speculation

Why ik Animals Need Salt?
Prof. JaruesE. Johnston, of Scotland,
says : Upwards of half the saline mat
ter of blood ( 7 er rent.) consists of
common salt, and this is partly dis
charged every day through the skin
and kidneys: the necessity of contin
ued supplies of it to the healthy body
becomes sutlk-iently obvious. The bile
also contains soda (one of the ingredi
ents of salt) as a special arid indispen
sable constitUcntand so do all the car
tilages of the body. Stint the supply
of salt, thereafter, and neither will the
bile le able properly to assist digestion
nor the cartilage to bo built up again
as fast as they nattiraly waste. It is bet
ter to place salt where stock can have
free access to it, than to give oceaou
ally in large quantities. They will
help themselves to what they need, if
allowed to do so at pleasure; otherwise
when they become "alt-'uni-zrv"
