Week by week, says Dun, it is found

so much smaller than tho industries
have been accustomed tosnpply.aud so

the competition drives prices in each
grade down to or bolow nottul cost,
Miueezing out profits and forcing down
wages. Yet the proms a id the wages
are the fund from wbieli future pur
chases for consumption must be made.

works ure goint; into operation, many
with n doubt how long they my b"

have boen frequent notios of resump

and other indications are that a general

An Appeal of 11 Century Ago to
Save Your Kags."
Paper was so scarce when the American
army entered Philadelphia upon tbeevao
nation of the British troops that there wnH
n want of paper fitted for t he construction
of cartridges, it was advertised for nnd
but a small quantity procured. An order
was then tuned di niandiug its Instant
production by nil the people in tbat city
who bad it.
Tills produced but little more, very prob
ably on account of its scarcity. A file of
soldiers was then ordered to make search
for it in every place when- liny was likely
to be found. Among Other places visited
In July was n garret in the house In which
Benjamin Franklin bad previously bad his
Hero were discovered about 500 copies
of a sermon which the Kev. (iilhert Tenant
had written printed by Franklin npon
"Defensive Wur" to arouse the colonists
during the French troubles. The were nil
tuken and used ns cases for musket car
tridges und nt once sent to the urniory.
Most of them were used nt tbo battle of
Monmouth. The requisites In cartridge
paper wore, of course, thinness, strength,
pliability and inUamuinbility, and such
paper then was necessarily scarce.
In 1781 paper was so scarce that in New
York thu journal of the second sasHlon of
the assembly was not printed, tho printer
being unable to procure the ile- ssnry pa
per. Ilorner, in his "HibliotLrcu Amer
icana" 170 informs us that "at this
tiuio the people of North America manu
factured their own paper find in sufficient
quantities for home consumption, but the
price of labor was so high as to discourago
publishing beyond their own laws, pam
phlets and nt'wspnpcra. " Some two years
after this date David Hull, postmoster of
Troy, N. Y., publlsheri the following
homily under the bead " i'lense Save Your
"The press contributes more to tho dl fTu
sion of knowledge und Information than
any other medium. Hags are tho primary
requisite in the manufacture of paper, nnd
without paper the newspapers of our coun
try, those cheap, useful and agreeable com
panions of the citizen nnd fanner, which in
n political and moral view are of the highest
national importance, must decline and be
extingnisbed. The paper mills of the state,
would the poor nnd the opulent, tho filmi
er and the mechanic, be persuaded into the
laudable frugality of saving rags, would
turn out ample suirpilcsof American paper
to nUswer all demandi.
"The people of Massachusetts and Con
necticut, with true American zeal, have
Introduced this exemplary saving Into tho
economy of their houses. Thu lutter, by
fair calculation, makes yearly a saving ot
rags to the actual amount of 160,000, The
ladies in several large towns display an
elegant workbag aa part of the furniture of
their parlors, In Which every rag lluit is
Used lu the paper mill Is carefully pre
served. Were this example initiated this
state would not be drained of its circulat
ing cash for paper and other manufactures
which American artists can furnish.
"The poor by the mete saving of rags
may be enabled to procure paper und books
for schools Bud family Use nnd more agree
able articles of dress and consumption.
The rich w ho regard the interest of their
country will direct their children or do
mestics to place n bag or box iu some con
venient place ns a deposit for rags, that
none may lie lust by being swept into the
street or lire, the sales of which ravings
will reward the attention of tho faithful
servant nnd encourage the prosperous en
terprise of prudence nnd frugality."
The industries of tho country grew so
fast that in 1 sio the number of paper mills
in t he United States was estimated at 188,

For many centuries the Chinese nntion

modem Chinese statesmen are poets move

taught himself English with only the aid
of a Murray's grammar and a Nuttall'i
