Has anybody noticed a fall in the
cost of living since the dissolution of
the socalled "packer trust"?

Speaking of trusts it may be of in
terest to readers of newspapers to
know 'hat spalper can be bought from
representatives of the trusts at retail
cheaper than jobbing houses can buy
it from independent lm ills at. wholesale.
There is anywhere of from three to six
tiper iouIlid difference between
trust .pilces and indlependet prices,
the explanation being made by paper
jobbers that the federal trade' commis
sion keeps its thumb on time trusts and
allows the Independents to charge
Avhat they please. While we do not
believe In price fixing, we think it but
right to fix prices for small and lar,:e
There is mmchi to be said on bothi,
sides of the question as to t h- 'proposed
bonus to ex-service men of a $50 bond
for each month of service spent in the
war. 'Many of the soldiers went tIo
.war at a considerable financial sac
riflice, though this is not t rue as to all
of them. All of them made sacri flees
of other kinds greater in proportion
than the financial sacriflee while a good
1ma1ny .PeoiPle, not all, may have profIt
ed (luring the war as never before. But,
the soldiers did not go to war for
financial reasons. If they did the debt
could not he reipaid. They had high
erl and nobler thoughts than that of
money. If they would look at the
bonus proposition in the same light as
they (11( the war itself, we believe that
they would rise up to disapprove it.
An additional .bond or mortgage placeI
on the already heavily burdened tax
payers wol ( seriou sly hamper the
progress of the country and contribute
1o further 111settlement of business.
In the long ru1n not only the nation
but the soldiers themselves wouhd suf
