carnival this fall. Such an event
is of too vast importance to do
without it. Therefore ImsineHH
men will say let's have it.
Now a word to tho inorchants.
Do not put oil' getting your oigun-
izntion perfected. You ought to
profit by tho experience of former
years. July or August is too Into
to begin. May or .luiie is late
enough. April is a bettor time.

Angolo want tho dipping vat and
want it badly. Tho Santa Vo and
tho IT. S. Government will co-
operate. Tlisrc is no reason why
San Angolo should defer tin- mut-

The Dipping Vat.
Notwithstanding the fnot that
ono hears vory little concerning
tho proposed dipping vat work is
boing dono by tho Business Club
committee and only the absonco
of positive accomplishments has
provontod an announcement of
tho results. Messrs. Matcalfo
Harris and Murrnh compose tho
committee uppomted by tho

working on tho proposition con-
tinuously sinco thoir appoint

A dipping vat in Sun Angolo
would undoubtedly bu a paying
proposition both for tho pronat-
ors tho railroad and tho business
interests of tho city. Tho pro-
moters would sharo in tho profits
cattle would bo brought horo for
dipping from many counties in
ovory diroction. Tho Santa Ko
would got tho long hauls and got

t'eniHiMi't MiiKiuinc (or April
Most exasperating of all in the
increased cost of living is the in-
crease in the cost of food. When
it is considered that the average
American family whose income
(Iooh not exceed $1200 spends (as
has been ascertained by govern-
ment investigators) nearly -lo per
cent of liW entire income on food
it is easily seen how great a differ-
ence is made by ri-e in prices of
ten to twenty-five cents on ovory
dollar's worth of edible supplies
covering moats vegetables and
practically all other eatables.
As compared with tho uvorago
prices governing during tho pe-
riod from 1800 to 1000 it is reck-
oned by tho United States I'ttroiiti
of Labor that hams and salt
beef have gone up 12 nor cent.
salt pork and bacon J2 per cent.
lard !."; per cent fresh vegotables
1!! per cent. corn-meal 10 per
cent. crackers 10 per cent. New
Orleans molasses 20 per cent.
hauiis ill per cent. herrings HI

72 per cent. and currants 121 per
cent. I heso aro only u fow il-
Poor Mrs. Honed ict when sho
goes to market finds that her
housekeeping monoy doos not go
far. Sho does hor best pricing
various articles from stall to stall
and buying each thing whoro it
is cheapest or ono should rather
say least dear but tho rosult is
vory discouraging. Less beef
than is really wanted and infer-
ior outs of that must bo made to
do. As for fresh vegotables they
are likely to be so high us to be
impossible. Kggs luivo climbed
noarly 110 por cent. and tho best
ones which nro the only kind
worth buying come at 28 cents u
doen in summer whorcus half-u-doicu
years ugo thoy could have
been purchased for twenty-one or
twcnty-twD cents Sometimes
indeed they went lower but wo
are speaking here of avorugo
In those happy days choice
"chuck" roust could bo" hud for
six cents a pound ; now it costs
'.) cents. Prinio rib roust of beof
was fifteen and a half cents; now
it is seventeen and a halt. Soup
meat cume at eight and n half
conts; now it is eleven cents.
PortorhoiiBO steak was twenty-ono
conts; now it is twonty-fivo. Sir
loin steak was sevonteon conts;
now it is twonty. Round stoak
was sixtoon conts; now it is eigh-
teen Mainwhilo chickens havo
gone upononnously. Fowls that
used to cost twolvo conts u pound
aro now oighteon cents while
roasting chickons huvo ascended
from twenty conts to twonty-fivo.
Turkeys aro no longer for poor
folks ovon at Thanksgiving and
No wonder that Mrs. Uenodict
(iiulB that hor market monoy runs
short. If sho would havo a do-
cont quality of buttor on hor ta-
blo sho must pay HO conts a
pound for it whoroas only four or
five years ago it could bo had for
twonty-four conts. Tho chooso
that used to cost fifteen conts now
comes at eighteen. Molasses is
sixty cents a gallon instead of
forty-eight.; milk is eight cents a
quart instead of seven; lard is
thirteon cents a pound instoad of
nino and when it comes to fish
tho rise is proportionate Cod
steak for instunce has climed
from fifteen to oightoon conts a
pound. Bread luckily still ro-
muiiis ut flvo conts a pound loaf
in most places.
Mrs Benedict's marketing ac-
count only tho other day showed
that potatoes cost hor twonty-fivo
conts a peck whoro as tho prico
flvo of six yoars ago was only
oightoon conts. But. of courso
ono can't get along without pota-
toes. Kioo is an economical veg-
etable but it has gono up a cont
and a half a pound incidentally
to tho gonorul Hbo in tho necessa-
ries of life. Sho buys u good
deal of pork bocauso it is cheap-
er than other kinds of moat; but
tho fact is that it is pretty nearly
as dear us boof used to bo chopB
having gono up from eleven to
fifteen conts nud ronst pork in
nonrly as groat a proportion.
Hams that woro formorly twolvo
conts a pound uro now Bixtoon
conts. Most kinds of grocorios
happily do not soom to havo in-
creased much in prico but it is
cortainly truo that tho quality
of teu which brought forty conts
a pound m tho ninoties fotches
fifty cents today.
