Current literature has been enriched.
Mr. S. R. Guggenheim, president of the Yukon
(Alaska) Gold company, in a magazine article,
insists that the real cause of living is national
His reasoning is clear. People insist on
wearing so much silk that silkoline is selling at
twice what itwas. They demand so high a qual
ity of wool clothing that shoddy is all they can
get. They hanker for the choice cuts of meat,
and as a result shank and liver has been sent
up to 15 cents a pound. They WILL Jive in
mansions, and two-room flats have gone to $30 a
month in consequence. It is so all along the
line. You can see that it would bo so. The de
mand for luxuries is such that necessaries of
life are high because nobody wants them ! Per
fectly clear, Mr. Guggenheim.
All these things tend to reconcile us to the
fact that the Guggenheims are gradually cor
nering the earth, in so far as Morgan and Rock
efeller haven't already fenced it in. Perhaps
we'd better let 'em have Alaska Ballinger may
have been right about it.
Listen to this fine old bromidiom of Guggen
heim : "I believe," says he, "that the wage earn
er is more extravagant in proportion to his
earnings than the millionaire."
Shouldn't wonder a bit! Right in this town
wage earners frequently spend for meat to last
them over Sunday every blamed cent left over
from the week's pay check. Do, you happen to
know any millionaires who do such a thing? A
pipe or two of smoking .tobacco after supper will
probably amount to one-half of 1 per cent of the
laborer's daily wage. Mr. Guggenheim's daily
income is estimated at $30,000. One-half of 1
per cent of this is $150. Do you suppose that
the thrifty Mr. Guggenheim smokes a hundred
and fifty-dollar cigar after dinner? Certainly
not. He is much more economical "in propor
tion to his income" than almost anyone you
In order to equal the extravagance of the la
borer who drinks a 5-cent glass of beer after his
day's work, Mr. Morgan would have to consume
250 quarts of champagne at $5 a quart.
Mr. Morgan doesn't do it! We state this
Mr. Guggenheim asserts and we believe he
is rigid that John D. Rockefeller is -the least
extravagant man he knows of. Mr. Rockefeller
has never been know nto slip down to Billy's
place on the corner and spend $4,000 playing
pool in the evening, as he would have to if he
equaled the extravagance "according to in
come" of the stone mason who rolls one game
at 20 cents an hour.
But the crowning extravagance in which the
poor indulge Mr. Guggenheim never refers to
The poor give up a large a very large part of
their incomes to make Guggenheims, Morgans
and Rockefellers: When they come to real econ
omy, here's where they will begin to cut down
expenses. When they have reformed in the mat
ter of supporting millionaires, maybe they will
be better able to stand the strain of more chuck
steak and codfish.
By the way, it will be just as well for the man
who has been kept up at night attending comet
parties to find another excuse without unneces
Nevertheless and notwithstanding the results,

It is evident that Secretary Wilson's cook

The Prescott Courier was a mighty good

the spring means that you have cut off the fly
population for the season by many millions. The
figures are too much for the common mind to
grasp, for the rate at which they multiply is inconceivable.
At the election held in Denver the other day,
