The Production of Common Brick. of the list of mineral products of the United States concerning which statistics are collected by the Naiional Geological Survey only three pig iron, copper, and bituminous coal-exceeded in value in 1906 the products of the clays; and of the clays themselves the product ranking highest in value was, as heretofore, the common brick, of which more than ten billions--to be exact, 10,027,039,000—were marketed during the last year, says the Geological Survey.

The value of this great product amounted to $61,300,696, an increase of $93.687 over the value for 1905, and constituted 47.30 per cent, of the value of all the brick and tile products and 38.007 percent of the value of the entire product of the clay industries. The largest production of common brick in 1906 by any one State was reported by New York, whose output amounted to 1,305,579,000 brick, valued at $9,205,981, or about $6 per thousand. This quantity represents 15.31 per cent. of the entire output of the country, and the value is 1.5.02 per cent. of the total.

The greater part of New York's common brick comes from the Hudson River region. Next to New York the largest producer of common brick in 1906 was Illinois, which reported an output of 1.19.5,210.000 brick, valued at $5,713,906, or $4.79 per thousand, The great common-brick producing region of Ilinois is Cook County, and it was the deline in price in this district that brought the average price per thousand for the State to $4.79, the lowest for several years.

The only other siate reporting more than a billion common brick was Pennsylvania, whose marketed output amounted to 1,027,141.000 brick. valued at $0,780,374, or $6.41 per thousand. While third in quantity the product of this state was second in value and the average value per thousand was greater than that for either New York or Ulinois. Ohio's pryduction of common brick in 1906 was fourth in quantity and value--550,422,000 brick. valued at $3,243,137, or $, per thousand--and New Jersey's was fifth, amounting to 413,235.000 brick, valued at $2.410,656, or $6.32 per thousand.

The other States range from Kansas, with 314,371,000 brick, valued at $1,376,532, or $4.38 per thousand, to South Dakota, with 6.001,000 brick, valued at $51.175, or $8.93 per thousand. California's 275,700,000 common brick were valued at $1,962, S60, or $7.05 per thousand. The average price per thousand for common brick in 1906 was $6.11.

Legacy or Knheritance Tax Laws.

A law taxing the right to inherit personal property by will or intestate law was passed by Congress July 6. 1797. The rate was 25 cents on amounts from $50 to $100, 00 cents on amounts from $100 to $500, "and for every further sum of $300. the additional sum of one dollar." This act continued in force until June 30, 1802, when it was repealed. Α. national legacy tax law was again enacted Juiy 1, 1862. amended in 1866, and again in 1806, and repealed in 1870, five years after the close of the Civil War.

Again, June 13, 1898. Congreso enacted a legacy tax law which was amended in 1901 and continued in force until repealed July 1, 1902. Under the acts of 1898 and 19901. the sum of $21,603,699.02 was collected and paid into the national treasury up to June 30, 1904.

Pennsylvania enaoted a legacy tax law April 6, 1826, which law, as amended from time to time, is still in force. Legacy tax laws were enacted in Maryland in 1844, and Delaware in 1869. They were enacted in North Carolina in 1846, and repealed in 1883. They were enacted in Virginia in 184, repealed in 1835, re-enacted in 1863. and again repealed in 1874. Since 1855 legacy tax laws have been enacted in twenty nine different States, namely, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Idaho (1907). Mlinois, Iowa, Louisiana, Kentucky (1906), Maine, Massachusetts (1907), Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire (1905), New Jersey, New York, North Carolina (1907), North Dakota, Ohio (1 epealed 1906), Oregon, Tennessee, Texas (1907), Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming.

* The transfer of all property. real, personal or mixed, within the jurisdiotion of the State at date of death is subject to the tax, whether the decedent was a resident or non-resident. The tax is not a tax on property, but the right which the State grants to the legatee to inherit property.
