Sir,—In reference to "House holder's" letter in your last issue anent the high cost of living, t heartily agree with him re high price of commodities, rent, etc., but I deplore the fact that he has made one gross mistake, and that is, in not quoting the liquor trade.

By so doing it would give every working man a . chance to " wet the other eye and leave a margin in the bottle for the morning. Herewith I have much pleasure in enclosing: a balance-sheet of my family's expenditure, which may convince " Householder" how it is possible to live a happy, domestic life on the small sum of 30s per week:— Hubby's beer ..
