The Commissioners liave made more than four hundred reports, eiamined 2. '-'.'! I witnesses and taken '.'". pagoi of testimony. They helped ti put the extravagaul and itmdeai AUoduct Commlttlon out of batinOM, and nipped in lite hud i project for "a palntial $77,000 residence for the gatwk00ier.'

Ktren ;i laat year the Housewives' League is determined that dealera lhall not booil the nrlcc of this nlentiful and noniisliiii'.' fruil on the pica of acareily. Twenty-two million one huu dred and tevouty-two thousand fivo hundred and twenty doaen eggs' were in storage in tho Stale of New Jfork Bept. I. The women pro-1 po' to buy thrfae eggs Ihii winter ror nol a cent more than thirty cents n d.i'!i. or know Ihe reason why. Last year the dealers were worsted in the fray, ntid forced to put eggs on the market at twenty til cents. Hut that was later 111 the season, say the women: and since they declare they want nobody to! lose money, thirty cent eggs right through the winter is their slogan! this year. To all appearances we thai have these yearly buttling oer the egg until cither the housewife or the cold stortgo man experiences a change of nature. For it it not the nature of the cold storage man to buy eggs when they art cheap, hide them away and later 1 iv to make the public believe they are scarce, that he may -.11 rheiu 9 1 scandalous profit? And i it oo1 the nature of the housewife to too through the cold storage man and beat hint roundly nt his game? If the cold storage man has any sense he will see his ray to modify his nature and end tne strife. I JOHN.OU Don't love fie AMYMORF IADOR.e fSToP CRYiNCr,ume U-IR.V. .
