their accounts for this year with those of previous years It is estimated that the cost of liviu among the classes is from 30 to 40 per cent higher this summer than it was three years ago The advance in the price of foodstuffs in everyday use has been general in all parts of the country Not only iis the housekeeper affected by the rise iu priqea but the hotel keeper the restaurant proprietor the bakoraud many others feel it keenly The hotel men and restaurant keepers cannot raise their prices in proportion- to tho increased mounts they are obligt d to pay for foods for their tables There are many articles which they are obliged to give away and cannot charge for such as butter bread and condiments These have all advanced i price and cause a proportionate falling off in the restaurant keepers profits Among those who are loud iu their complaints are the bakers whose mar gin of profit has been cut down over 2 0inper cent but says the Newark Sunday News probably the man most seriously affected by the steady advance in pricesI in the last three years is the laborer who earns from rJ to 12 a week When HO per cent is deducted from his earn fug it in a serious mutter Although the present year is regarded as a pins perous one the cost of living has in creased in a greater proportion than wagesHere are some of the percentages of advance in prices in meats and food stuffs during the last three years Tea 20 per cent starch 40 cinnauiou 50 mackerel 10 kitchen soups 10 cerculsI 40 canned peas 20 canned tomatoes 60 condensed milk 20 butter 40 eggs 25 cheese 40 pickles 15 In all the grocery list there are but two articles in everyday use that have declined iuII price They are coffee and flour which have gone down 10 per cent each The percentage of advance in moots is remarkable The averages are as follows Lamd 25 per cent corned beef 75 rump beef 30 roast beof 30 sirloin steaks 25 porterhouse stoaHK3uii beef liver 10 ham 30 bacon o cornt ed bellies 30 pork chops

directs attention to a fallacy which is bno means uncomf mon in the tables of tbe losses inciden tal to strikes The popular habit of figuring the cost of these industrial 1 struggles is far enough from the actual facts to warrant n correction The present anthracite coal strike is an instance At the end of the eleventh week a table published throughout the country puts the loss to operators in price of coal uoruiul at 527 220000 and the loss in wages to strikers at i 12700000 By this method of figuring the operators are losing more than twice as much as tbe strikers PENCHANT FOR FROCKS
