COLLECTING WAR TAX ON BEER
Fifty Cents a Barrel Additional Has
Been Imposed by Congress
The Internal Revenue Department's
representatives in this district have
not yea received instructions regarding
how or when to collect the war tax just
provided for by Congress.
No information has bc.en received
from Washington by Collector Kivkcn
dall, except on one subject, that of the
tax on beer. Last night Deputy Col
lector Brinker, at his office in the old
postoffice building, received a telegram
from Collector Kirkendall telling him
that on and after October 23 he should
collect $1.50 a barrel on fermented
liquor, instead of $ 1 as heretofore,
and change his stamps to conform to
the new order.
This applies to all beer in stock, and
the old Btamps are withdrawn and new
ones issued, the collector charging fifty
cents to make up the larger tax where
$ 1 has already been paid.
Brewers, from Harrisburg to Altoona.
have been in communication with Dep
uty Brinker and he has been very busy
issuing the new stamps. No other in
structions have 'leen received regarding
the levying of the war tax or how it is
to be collected.

MAKING THE INVESTMENT FIT THE CLIENT
' ——— ,
(Copyright, 1914, b y C. M. Keys, New York.) *
An old woman, owning: some 6 per cent, railroad bonds which she
has had nearly twenty-five years, found out recently tihat these
bonds were going to be paid off In January next. She, therefore,
wrote to her banker asking him to suggest to her some rmore bonds
Just like them which would pay the same rate of interests
In his reply the banker gave her a list of bonds every enu of which
was either a 3*4 per cent,, 4 per cent, or 5 per cent, bond, selling at.
a discount. In one column of his list he had the rate otf interest
worked out. It was 6 per cent, or a little more in each casie. One of
the bonds, for instance, was a per cent, issue which hs.d twenty
years to run and which she could buy at 71, or $7lO for a thousand
dollar bond. The yield here was stipulated as being 6 per cent. She
took the trouble to divide 71 into 350 and discovered that tfhe answer
to this simple problem of arithmetic was 4.9. She, therefore, replied
to her banker to the effect that this bond, as well as all the other
bonds in the list, did not yield 6 per .cent. This one bond slhe figured
yielded less than 5 per cent.
The banker in his reply, of course, explained quite cLearly that
in addition to the income of $.15 a year from each SI,OOO bond the
client would aisq obtain $290 at the end of twenty years, because the
bond, which would only cost her $7lO, would he paid off at SI,OOO.
This "appreciation," he explained, is always reckoned as part of the
return on a bond investment. Similarly, If the bond cost more than
a thousand dollars, anyone reckoning the return of interest has to
allow for the fact that it will "depreciate" If held to maturity.
The lady's reply to this letter was a piece of gcmd common sense,
from her point of view. In part, she said:
"Long before twenty years is up I hope to be in heaven. In the
meantime, I want to live as comfortably as my means will let me,
and in to do so T do not want to cut down my income every
year for the purpose of piling up some profits for those who will
inherit what little T own when T am gone, so I want to spend a
thousand dollars and get back S6O every year so long as T need it.
Please send me a list of some bonds that will accomplish this result
The incident Illustrates that a 6 tper cent, investment which would
he perfectly good for a life insurance company, or a savings bank,
or any other investment institution which hopes to make its activ
ities a continuous performance until the end of time, is not always a
perfectly good 6 per cent, investment for everybody. In the case
of this woman a per cent, bond, due in twenty years and selling
at 71. Is an unsuitable investment, because such a large proportion of
its net return—over one-sixth—would never come into her hands at
all, hut would be piled up for the benefit of her heirs. If, on the
other hand, she had been a young woman investing money to build
up for her own old age a comfortable position a 3% per cent, bond
at a big discount would probably have been much more suitable than
a 6 per cent, bond selling at par, because it would automatically in
.crease her principal and would not give her so much current income,
which, perhaps, might be frittered away or might be too small to
invest every six months, when it came in.
In the practice of investment this problem of making an invest
ment suitable to the client is quite a large factor. Of course it is not
the largest factor, for the safety of the principal and the interest
occupies the place of honor in the considerations of all honest men
guarding the Investments of other people. The question of suitability
is merely, therefore, an important incidental consideration. How
important it is is hardly evdr realized except when one comes to a
case where a crisis in the affairs of a man or woman arises out of
the fact that their Investments were utterly unsuited to the -purpose
for which they were made. An illustration of this condition is fur
nished by another actual incident. «
Some years ago a trustee who had been handling a fund for
twenty years came to the time when, under the terms of his deed
of trust, he was obliged to make a distribution of the fund. He had
paid no great attention to the matter of his trust for many years,
because he had Invested all the money in absolutely gilt-edge secur
ities twenty years ago, and had merely distributed the income every
year in equal proportions amongst the beneficiaries as -the income
came In. That was all he was instructed to do under the terms of his
trust, and he had faithfully fulfilled his conditions according to his
light*. That his "lights" were not particularly good seems to be
unfortunate for the benflciaries, for he discovered that his invest
ments. when he made them, were all in gilt-edge bonds selling at a
very high premium. He had paid as high as $1,250 for some 4 per
tent, state bonds. The lowest-priced bond in his list had cost him
$!.!#(» for a thousand dollar, par value. When, near the time of dis
tribution, he obtained an appraisal of all these securities, he found
that there was an average shrinkage of 14 per cent, in the face
value of his trust. When he brought this matter to the attention of
the writer it was to see whether anything could be done to alleviate
his distress at being obliged to report to the beneficiaries such a large
shrinkage in the principal as compared with *what both he and they
had expected would he distributed. He knew perfectly well that ho
would have a very bad time explaining to them what had happened
to the bonds. He felt that he had done nothing wrong and that he
could justify himself, but he knew perfectly well that explanations,
no matter how good they are, do not remove the tangible matter
which made the explanation necessary.
Hero another ease where an investment made in perfectly
good in the best grade of securities caused distress of mind
and. possibly, some physical distress on the part of the beneficiaries
because the investment was not suitable for the purpose for which
it was inade. It produced too large an income every year, which was
distributed i.o the beneficiaries, but a part of which actually came
out of the principal, leaving it depleted to that extent.
Of course, both these illustrations are mild illustrations. Hun
dreds of cases could be adduced where much greater damage has
resulted than could result from either of these cases. They arc
chosen because in neither case was there any element of unsoundness
in the securities bought, and all the error consisted only In the un
suitable character of the security and not in its badness.
