A Guatemala correspondent
writes to the British Trade Journal
that "at present British trade is fall
ing olT, its place being taken by the
commerce of the United States and
Germany." This seems to be the
condition of British trade every
where. And "the great system of
18 tor is beguiling "to totter to its
l. 18S0 the national debt of the
United States was $3S.33 per capita
the average for all foreign countries
$r;62, $2.71 less than ours. In lxK)
our debt was only $14.24 per capita;
that of the rest of the world was
$32.88, more than twice as large
as ours. The question is,
Have we or have we not distanced

ENCLAND will not put a duty on
American food products. The
democratic papers which imagine
that sue will are in error. Premier
Salisbury's talk in favor of a pro
tective policy will have no influ
ence. He has attacks of this sort of
folly every twelve or fifteen months,
and nobody in his country minds
him. A protective tariff would hurt
England as much as free trade
would hurt the United States.
It is estimated that the total ap
propriations by the first session of
the Fi:ty-second congress will foot
: . :,.)32,S04.78.S1. The total appro
i.i'.ions of the first session of the
y lirst (or "billion dollar") con-
gic-jH were $-103,3518,510.70, and this
included a pension deficiency of
$2."),321.I07.34, left it by the previous
democratic congress. The second
session of the "billion dollar" con
gress appropriated $323,01 8,072.55.
Therefore the first session of this
congress will exceed the first ses
sion of the last congress by $0l),40r,
109.02, and thi second session of the
last congress by $7,780,007.20. These
are the figures of Mr. Beltzhoover, a
democratic congressman from
Pennsylvania, and are verified by
AMERICAN AGRICULTURE PROS
PEROUS. The agricultural class deserves
some special consideration. It may
be asked, If farming is not profit
able, why do crops increase? If
market gardening is not profitable,
why does the product increase in
(itiautitN and in value? If farmers
do not prosper, why is it that there
is a constantly increasing demand
for labor on farms at wages that
are much higher than they were ten
or twenty years ago, to meet which
uemanu lor tarm lauor mere is no
sufficient supply? I anticipate the
bugbear of the mortgage; but
about that we are beginning to
have data sufficing for a true solu
tion. It is not true that the farm
ers, taken as a body, especially in
the west, are oppressed with heavy
mortgages. The reverse is true.
Let it suffice to refer to the special
census bulletin giving statistics of
farm lands and mortgages in Illi
nois. In this return, compiled by
Mr. John, S. Lord (whose reputation
is well known to every one dealing
with statistics) and by Mr. George
K. Holmes, a separation is made
between mortgaged acres and
mortgaged lots. Dealing with
mortgaged acres as a representa
live of mortgaged farms, we find
that the percentage of the mort
gage upon the true valuation of all
farms taxed in Illinois was only
thirteen and twciity-srven hund-
reths. Less than one-half of the
larms in Illinois are sunject lo any
mortgage, the percentage of tlu
total number of taxed acres repre
wented by the number of mortgaged
ai res being only thirty and seventy
eight hundredths. Dealing with
the mortgaged acus only, the aver
age ol the mortgage to the true
valuation is but forty-two and
twenty-seven hundredths per cent.
It therefore appears that much
less than one half of the farms of
Illinois are subjected to a mort
gage, and the average mortgage
upon that part encumbered by
debt is less than one-half its specific
value. This official statement con
firms the judgment which 1 had
formed from data secured in a
much less adequate manner from
other states.-Edward Atkinson in
WH-jhinton Bud tlio North

"Pumpkin pio is quite as big a fraud
At tho best a pumpkin hasn't any more
taste to it than a turnip, and why
should bo made into pio and treated as a
dessert I don't know. 1 have talked
about this thing confidentially anion
my most intimate friends, and many of
them have confessed to mo under a sol
