Mo&srs. .Editors.' In your last issuo

It Is well known that "the whole
world and the rest of mankind" are in

as low as possible, except those inter
ested ,in its produiction; and it is also
well known that those who raise it
have very litl control over the price
that it may or ought to bring. I hope
this will not always be the case, as it
is the fault of the farmer producing
