INCOME AND LAND TAXES. FIRST PAYMENTS, MARCH 18. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 7 March 1914

INCOME AND LAND TAXES. FIRST PAYMENTS, MARCH 18. On the first batch of assessments made under the Income Tax and ' State Land Tax, payments are due on March 18. Formerly one day was fixed as 'j the last date for the payment of in come tax, and most people availed themselves of all the time of grace that was allowed. Mr. R. M, Welldon, the present Deputy Commissioner, had the system changed, and now every Wednes day from the middle of March till the end of June is fixed as a paj^ day. It is open to any person taxed to pay on any day after he receives his assessment, but the last date so far as he is concerned is the one named m the notification sent to him. By this method one great rush is avoided, and many complaints obviated. It is claimed that the staff does its work more accurately and satisfactorily, and that there has been no grumbling on the part of the public. The mail de livered at the Income Tax Office on Tuesday consisted of 6500 letters, and on Wednesday the number was ab...

In the Refreshment Room. A sallow individual in a faded brovu overcoat sat down on a stool at a railway restaurant the other morning and said to the proprietor: "Give me a cup of coffee and one of your expurgated sandwiches."

INCUBATORS IN EGYPT. The announcement is. made by Mr. W. 1 H. Cadinan that ho lias discovered how I the ancient Egyptians incubated chick- J ens to the number of 120,000^000 a year, t lie has found incubators which ho J states were used in Egypt 5,000 yours ( ago. . The secret has been well guard ed, but it is laid bare at last. They had no .oil stores or gas or electric-, heated incubators, but they had - ovens which worked better even though they required more constant tending. Each oven was calculated to hold 7,000 eggs, and the fuel by which it was heated consisted of chopped straw and dung, but for the last ten days of the hatching the energy was supplied altogether by the chickens themselves. It is tlio com- j monest error of those operating our j fnodern incubators to use too much heat, 1 especially towards the end of the period, I and now we may learn from the old j Egyptians how not to do things as well S as how to do them.
