THE POWER THAT PULLS DOWN. I want to present a single idea in the fewest and clearest words afc my command. Here goes for a try at it. From the time tint you are first able to stand on your feet, up to the time' you can stand ño longer, there isalwaj s a power . puUint/ you : backward . and downward. You resist, and it persists.

Telegraphic. Wednesday's News by Wire. LATEST INTELLIGENCE. BRITISH AND FOREIGN. LONDON, Wed. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 7 October 1897
Telegraphic. ^»~V,N,V.^V .V.-WV.V.V^>. I Wednesday's News by Wire. LATEST INTELLIGENCE. BRITISH ÄND FOREIGN. LoN'DOîf, Wed. The report of the Royal Commis- sion on the sugar industry in the West Indies states that the depressing state . of the industry is due to the protec- tive duties imposed by foreign coun- tries on cane sugar, which gives makers oí beet sugars high local prices, and to . the export bounties of such countries.. The report advocates an appeal to foreign countries to cease paying bounties, and if this is not effective, that Great Britain shall assist West Indian planters, lt suggests that ¿60,000 be granted planters td clear off debts, ¿30,000 to assist settle- ment on the land, and ¿120,000 for the establishment of Central Mills. Sir Henry Norman urged that Great Britain should place a tax on beet sugar equal to the amount of the bounty paid on beet sugar, but a majority of the Commission do not concur with this suggestion.

MULGRAVE CENTRAL MILL. [To THE EDITOR.] [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 7 October 1897
MULGRAVE CENTRAL MILL. (To THE EDITOR.] Sir,-For tho information of those who are desirous of. knowing the actual net amount paid by the Mulgrave Mill for cane to the farmers last season, I have extracted the following from the Com- pany's books. In considering this price, it must be remembered that roads had to be cut in almost every instance, as no provision . was made at time of planting for such. The average price paid clear of all expenses and received in. cash by the farmers was 7s per ton, and bear in mind that the company paid for everything connected with the cane-cutting and field work. , The Aloomba farmers are about to enter into an agreement with the C.S.R. Coy. for ten years at 10/6 per ton delivered on the tramway, nnd when all is over this will net but little over 7/- to the farmers, although at 7/- any farmer can profitably grow cane . in this district. I publish these figures ' , for the purpose of convincing many who arc now under, an erróneoua opinion on the subj...

I was up at the Mill a good bit siuce 1 aaw you last, and diril a more miserable sight have me eyes set on than most of the cane I saw brought in for crushing. Sure the farmers must be mad." "Mad, Pat-Why?" "Clane mad, sir, or they wouldn't let all the growing sason go without ere a trash- ing, lt's thrue for me what I'm sayin', .that the biggest end of those Mulgrave farmers have never once trashed their cane. And hy the hones of me old uncle Michael, God rest his soul, you never saw the ¡pikes of it in all your horn days. There was ton after ton of the cane, sir, with the trash on it, that had never seen a ray of sun or a strake of daylight since it first began to grow, aud sure the result was that each »talk was white and soft as butter.
