BAD DEBTS DEDUCTED TAX
Washington.—I3ad de*bts may be
deducted in computing income tax re-
turns for 1021 under the new reenuo
act under a ruling issued by Commis
"Where all the surrounding and at
tending circumstances indicate," Mr.
Blair said. "Ihat the deht is worthless,
either wholly or in part, the part
thereof which is worthless and ch;r r
ed off or written down to a nominal
amount on' the hooks of tax payer
shall he allowed as a deduction in
computing net income.
"B;ibe'' Ruth's Double Arrested.
New York.—Looking more or less
like "Ihibe" Ruth* famous Yankee
batsman, led to the arrest of Raymond
Sterling, wanted in connection with
twenty-one burglaries committed in
Brooklyn. Mrs. Lillian S. Eehol, a
baseball fan who was th* victim of
one of tlie robberies, told the police
to look for "Babe" Ruth's double.
They did and arrested him on suspic-
ion. He is alleged to have confessed
committing all the crimes charged
Stumped the Manager.
It is a familiar fact that every now
and then some admirer of "Lohen-
grin" writes a letter of appreciation
to Ftiehanl Wagner, or Hint somebody
insists that King Edwanl VII is still
among tho living. Believers of this
type, however, rarely go back to the
pre-Christian era, ns some did re-
cently in Dublin nt a performance of
one of Sophocles' tragedies. So im-
prt -- « d w ere the Irish spectators by
the play that at the last curtain they
called for the author. Informed by
the manager that he had been dead
for over L'.OOO years, u wag from the
gallery exclaimed: "Well, then, show

Flies Had Choked Light.
In England, one winter, an untended
light situated twenty-nine miles from

They entered the "cage" wherein the

ankle-deep in dead tiles. Myriads of
