A GUATEMALA correspondent
writes to the British Trade Journal
that "at present British trade is fall
ing off, 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
1846" i9 begnning "to totter to its

United States was $38.33 per capita;

our debt was only $14.24 per capita;
that of the rest of the world was

England will not put a duty on
American food products. The
democratic papers which imagine
that sne will are in error. Premier
Salisbury's talk in tavor ol 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.

. uious of the first session of the
y-iirst (or "billion dollar") con
r.c. d were $403,398,510.79, and this
included a pension deficiency of
$23,321,907.34, left it by the previous
democratic congress. The second
session of the "billion dollar" con
gress appropriated $525,018,072.55.
Therefore the first session of this
congress will exceed the first ses
sion of the last congress by $69,406,

last congress by $7,786,007.26. 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
quantity 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
demand for farm labor there is no
sufficient supply? I anticipate the
bugbear ot 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 heavj
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
tive 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 twenty-tven hund
reths. Less than one-half of the
farms in Illinois are subject to any
mortgage, the percentage of the
total number of taxed acres repre
sented by the number of mortgaged
acres being only thirtj' and seventy
eight hundredths. Dealing with
the mortgaged acres only, the aver
age ot 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 I had
formed from data secured in a
much less adequate manner from
other states. Edward Atkinson in
Orejjon, Washington and the North
weal Pacific Coast.
The constant demand of the trav
eling public to the. far west for a
comfortable and at the same time
an economical mode of traveling
has led to the establishment as

"The two greatest American delu

on, "is cranberry sauce and pumpkin
"In all recitals of turkey feasts we
hear great stress laid on the cranberry
sauce. For years I ate it out of regard
for the customs of my ancestors. I pre
tended to like it, but I have come out as
a rank rebel. I will have no more of it."
"Pumpkin pie is quite as big a fraud.
At the best a pumpkin hasn't any more
taste to it than a turnip, and why it
should be made into pie and treated as a
dessert I don't know. I have talked
about this thing confidentially among
my most intimate friends, and many of
them have confessed to me under a sol
emn pledge of secrecy that they don't
like pumpkin pie or cranberry sauce
either, and there is now a little coterie
of us drawn very closely together, I can
tell you, by this joint antipathy.
"I don't know what the New England
club is going to do about it, but this
rank treason is flourishing in their very
midst, and before long there will be an
