RUSSIAN ROUBLE MUCH DEPRECIATED FRENCH AND DUTCH BULBS JUST ARRIVED JOHIJ RECK A SON London, Nov. 30 Writing imme diately after the Maximalist Coup in Petrograd, the Daily Telegraph's for mer Petrograd correspondent now In London said: "One of the most disquieting symp toms In revolutionary Russia is the devaluation of the rouble. It. is no longer merely an international matter as it was during the earlier phases of. the war. The cause then was the practical cessation or Russia's export trade and her consequent inability to pay with goods for her vast imports of war material. Now it is mainly due to the flooding of the country with paper money. "The depreciation shows Itself in a stupendous rise of prices and wages. The chairman of one of the largest business federations in Russia stated that the government was having to pay 150 roubles each for shells which it contracted for at 64 roubles." In the London market yesterday the rou'ble exchange went up to as much-as 380 roubles per ten pounds sterling, making the value of the rouble barely sixpence. In exchange circles it was reported difficult to deal at that figure and with regard to the output of paper money in Russia it was reported the inflation is now greater than ever and amounts to as much as one hundred million roubles daily on the basis of the normal ex While some of our economists are sittinp in their easy chairs they ques tion the value of the army Y.

Three planing mills In different parts of the country were burned Their output . s being used for boxes and crates for export. The other day another planing mill in the vicinity of the government's fire arm manu factory at Kongsberg was burned during the night and while attention was directed toward this Are a bur glar was detected in the fire arm fac tory.
