A Eckawat Bot Arrested.—The Detroit
Tribune gives an account of the arrest ofa boy
who gave his name as Walter* 6. Shepherd, and
who said his home Is abont twenty-five miles from
Chicago. A gentleman named Hamilton met the
boy on the Michigan Central Railroad cars, as the
Conductor was abont to put him off the cars for
non-payment of fare, and paid his*fare to Detroit.
The boy is about twelve years of age, and had on
ILrcc pairs of pants and three jackets, evidently of
borne make, the outer pair being oflight blue. Be
also wore a doth cap. trimmed with for. The boy
bad evidently ran away from home, and accord
ingly Mr. Hamilton had him arrested, as the best
means of detaining eo that his friends might
find him. Be was sent to the Detroit Bouse of
Con tctlon, to be kept until the arrival of some of
bis legal guardians..
The State Street Bridge.—There is at
lost a Tiiir prospect that the bridge proposed along
lime ago to be bollt across thq river at State street
frill be taken in hand, though the matter sllllhang*
fire, the gentlemen who have moved in the matter
finding the old proverb to be true—“ It is tbo last
leather that breaks the camel’s hack.” The
original appropriation made by the city for this
purpose was twelve bonds, which would probably
mow sell at £18,200 to $12k500. and it was believed
.that one-half of tbc expense would accrue from
Each sale. Bnt the bld-of Fox & Howard—the
lowest—is £30,975; the subscriptions loot np to
314,000, leaving a balance yet tmralsed of three
and a half thousand dollars. This is diffleut to ob
tain; the subscription hangs fire. Messrs. Fox &
Howard have signified their willingness to make
tbc contract on the strength of the money already
certified if some one will be responsible for the
balance In Ibe future. It is stated that an attempt
will be made next Monday evening to Induce the
Common Council to make a further appropriation,
go as to make the city pay half the expense.
A Disgbactfcl Sces.e—Yesterday after
xocn a disgraceful scene occurred on the river,
Which stows too plainly that there are plenty of
persona who are still firm believers in the “divine
right, 41 and that a colored ™*n was only for
Ihc express purpose of being a source of pleasure
to those who heap insult after Insult upon him, a
colored man, seated in a light cotter, was driving
vp and down the river, and some foolish boys be*
gan to snowball and otherwise insult him by the
use of opprobions epithets. The colored told
the boys to be quiet and let him alone; they still,
however, persisted in their annoyance. In self*
defence he drew a knife, at the same time saying,
“Iso ganman in dat crowd would. do dat but low
white trash. 11 Thereupon a big burly loafer,'
jpmpcd up, and kicking the knife Cram his hand,
smacked him in the most brutal manner, and had
It not been for two gentlemen, who happened to
l>c sear, the poor colored would bare been
beaten to death, for daring to take an afternoon
drive. He was given In charge of two police offl
cefs, who promised topi eservehim from anymore
attacks by this unchristian crowd.
Eecbottiso—Provost Marshal James, of
this city, received, yesterday morulas, the follow

Immediately on this fact being made public, the
recruiting business, which baa been at a dead lock
during the past few days, sprang into life as if by
xnsglc, and some thirty-three were brought in and
examined; of these thirty were sworn in—showing
the number rejected to be about 10 per cent, which
is about the usual average. The medical
examiner is very strict, as many, who no doubt
. know that they are physically disqualified, are wil
ling to enlist for the object of obtaining the bounty,
lecllng confident that they will be discharged be
fore having been in the service a month, thus
making a good speculation of it. Among those re
cruited yesterday were quite a number.of veterans,
who will thus receive the Government bounty of
$402, in addition to that paid by the county.
Should the rolls be completed today the boys will
get their bounty and take the trains for Springfield
fhia evening, and make room at the Armory and

The relation which labor sustains to capital, and
tie influence which a super-abundance of the one
exerts on the other is a topic which writers on
political economy bars In scores of volumes en
deavored to elucidate. As long ago as 427 B; C.,
the subject was discussed in the “Eryxlas” a
work attributed to one of the followers of Socrates.
Plato also wrote vohunlnlously upon, the
some subject. Aristotle is however ■ en
titled . to the credit of reducing the
the crude notions and dogmas advanced by previ
ous writers to the dignity ot a science. The an
cients regarded industrial pursuits with disfavor
and even Cicero In much later times looked upon
trade and labor as degrading. He remarks In his
Jk Qfpdi*: “ The gal ns of merchants, as well asof
all who Ihe by labor, and not by skill, are mean
and illiberal. The very merchandise Is a badge of
their Blarcxy.” The more modem treatises on this
subject date from 3,615, and comprise the works ol
Montcbreticu, Sorts, Turhulo, Gomez, Misaleden,
Hun, Child, Yarranton, Colbert, North, Petty,
Locke, Qucanay,-Turgot, Hume, Adam Smith,
Mathews, Chalmers, Carey, and a host
of others of greater or less notoriety. The conclu
sion reached by Mathew Carey may he expressed
in aTew words; “ There Is a complete identity of
interest -between agriculture, maanJkcturea and
commerce." This doctrine, and that other result
to which he arrives after a long course of reason
ing, th at “accumulated capital has a constant ten
dency to fall in value when compared with labor/*
has come to be considered correct, by all thinkers
upon the relation of capital to labor. It therefore
follows that labor is steadily growing in power to
command capital, and that the power of capital
*overlabor is constantly diminishing . that labor
and capital combined are producing a larger return
for the same outlay, of which a larger share should
go to the laborer, while the share belonging to
capital is diminished in proportion, but increased
in amount because the yield of capital is so much
Increased. The. distinction between labor and
capital and their relative values, may be taken
from the definitions of the two terms. Capital Is
the ability to command the gratuitous services of
nature. It Is not money alone, or lands, or build
ings that make capital—it may be skill, Judgment
or tact. It may be inherited wealth, costing noth-'
’ Ing originally, and having vitality and value only
as subjected to the influences of labor. Labor is
.productive, and production consists in directing
the forces of nature to tho services of men. Cer
tain laws pervall in nature, which skillfully direct
*cd by labor, bring increase of capital. An army of
mechanics, by following certain fixed and un
changeable rules and principles, crrect a building,
and this becomes capital because it yields returns.
Labor may so direct the operations of nature that
the earth will bring forth abundant) supplies, and
it too becomes added value or capital. It follows,
therefore, that capital is dependant upon labor for
its value, and that labor is in some»sense depend,
cut upon capital for its value. The relation is mu
tual, and both should harmonize. The act of
production, or labor, 'implies consumption.
Labor must cat, animals must consume
and capital is the source whence these arti
cles for consumption must come. In other words,
capital is the snrplussage of labor, or the amount
of product remaining after the necessity expenses
ot labor have been paid. These accumulations
become powerful agents in the profitable direction
of future labor. The mutual dependence Is even
more extensive; labor is comparatively valueless
without capital, as its results are very small; tools
thcmselvCs are capital, accumulated by previous
labor, and vice terea, capital is valueless without
labor, though perhaps the depredation la values
would not be so disastrous and immediate.
Land would not be owned if it brought no return,
houses would not he bnilded if they could not be
rented, and consequently they would have no ap
preciable value; they would represent no sum of
money, and the capitalist and the laborer would
occupy relatively the same position;
Laborers constitute the great majority of our
population. By the term laborers wc mean not
alone those who dig and delve with their hands—
the carpenters, the masons, the painters, the me
chanics and the artisans—but the tlunkers, the
brum-workers, the merchant and the banker—ln
fact all who produce, or whojfacilltate production
by aiding in the transfer of products, whether of
literature, building materials, or anything- which
tends to the accumulation of capital There are.

and laborers, and the two relations are not neces

inure to the advantage of those employed by them.
We have not the data at hand from which to ar
i rive at the exact number of laborers in Chicago.
There are probably not less than-thirty thousand
heads of families in the city, of whom, by far the
greater numberare laborers in the enlarged sense
of the term we have given above, and to these
should be added at least one-third for the laboring
members of their families arrived at years of ma
turity and not yet with famllfcs of their
■ own: so that we may safely assume that the labor
ing element of Chicago Is in point of numbers as
. compared with capitalists, forty thousand to five
hundred—in the proportion of eighty to one. It
’. would be an interesting study to indicate the mxm

with their hands, or beads, and those who com
bine the two relations, bnt the exhibition Involves
an mount of research, sufficient to deter ns from

finished and have passea the culminating point of

entered upon a career of prosperity unexampled in
its previous history, and so continued until the
commercial revulsion which swept over the coun

which until the breaking out of the war, worked
such wide-spread and disastrous results both
to capital ana labor, and which the latter especial
ly have such bitter reason to remember.

In 1657. and subsequently, until 1861,* labor was a
drag, and the prices, except in cases where the
rates of remuneration were controlled by trade or
ganizations and unions, were very much reduced.
Capital was also sadly deteriorated. A large
amount of the surplus accumulations of the pre
ceding Tears had been invested in outside property
and real estate at enormous values, and when the
crisis came it suddenly ceased to be productive,
and the process of equalization began.
In the spring of 1860 the tocsin 01 war was sound
ed, and our citizens, particularly the laboring por
tion, sprang to arms.. Then began the equaliza
tion of supply and demand? A large number ex
changed the activities and tods of laboring for the
comparative ease and comfort of military life, and
those who remained found more employment at
the bands of capital and better compensation.
War feeds war, fttralshes its own sinews and in
duces prosperity. So when the war was fairly In
augurated the whole country felt the impetus. The
demand for food caused the agriculturist to sow a
greater breadth, and labor already largely depleted
t>y the demands of the army, reaped the benefit.
Other trades and employments were also stimula
ted. The promise of quick returns and generous
gains induced the investment of capital, and soon
the equilibrium between labor and capital was re
stored. As the demand for supplies Increased,
the preponderance was once more in flavor of la
bor, and wages began to increase. The demand
was in excess of the supply, and capital was once
more rendered subordinate to labor. The labor
market is as sensitive as the mercury in the ther
mometer. When capital is remunerative, prices
advance as well of necessaries tfs of labor. The
costofprodnctlonis more IJian met by the cost of
While the war has stimulated industry and in
creased production it has also given rise to an in
evitable advance in all the essentials of civilized
life. The expenses of the war must be met by in
creased taxation, and this enhances the price to
ihe consumer of tho article taxed, admitting that
the compensation of labor remained the same;
this, in consequence of the duplication of the tax*
'on some articles, would average four to five per
cent. Then the price of articles imported expe
rienced another advance from increased import
duty, and, when gold commenced to command a
premium, went still higher, from the fret
that they most he paid for in gold. The next item
of increased cost was found in the action of that
class of Industries whose members had bnt little
competition and Were able to dictate their own re
muneration for labor, as wishing not to be able to
purchase less with the avails of that labor than
they could before; this still farther enhanced the
price of the articles on which they operated, for it
must never be forgotten that the price of an ar
ticle is—what it costs to prepare it for
sale, and' to bring it into the' mar
ket. or leaving speculative profits out
of tho reckoning, it Is the amount paid for labor of
all kinds thereon. • Then the increased demand for
certain products, needed to feed, clothe 'and equip
;he army, joined with tho scarcity of labor caused
by the withdrawal of workers* to compose that
army, put the remaining workers into the position
of being able to demand increased pav, and reduc
ed employers .to the necessity of acceding to tbc
demand, and thus the price of the necessaries of
life has risen from this combination of causes, till
now the avenge increase is 75 to 100 per cent, on
the prices existing previous to the breaking out of
Hence the necessity for Increased nay amon"
those who—unfortunately for themselves—were
Dot able lo dictate terms at the ootset; with some
of these the advance has been effected, others
have not been able to procure an increase of nar
And these two classes arc divided by a verv well*
defined line; not that of labor, but w gentility In
sppcarsncc. The honest son of toil who Is not
ashamed to be seen carrying his tools through the
streets, or using them there if required; whose
perspiring face and dusty or perhaps dirty clothes
tell of hard labor,—these are the men
who have had their wages raised almost
as fast as the demands were made. The other
class la composed of those who strive to preserve
a respectable appearance, although they labor as
hard as the others. And the difference Is caused
by the Inevitable law of supply and demand. The
idea that it is dishonorable to be a laborer or a
mechanic is too rapidly gaining ground among the
youth or our day, and hence, whenever a ’ “ situa
tion" is open there are a score of applicants for
the place, and thus the remuneration of him who
•ccnplce U Is brought down to the' lowost potdt.
Ow CommerdaJ Colleges graduate clerks bj the
fcore. and there ore too many young men whose'
«mbiilon to be s clerk or a teachef—anything that
Is respectable—ls their only qualification.
The following tables show the wages paid to
certain classes of workers daring the four past
years, and the difference in price of the neceaaa
tics of life. A comparison or these will show the
difference In the actcal cost of living as it affects
the pocket of tho liver:

The great majority of trades employing journey
men who work by the “piece,” cabinet makers
upholsterers, coopers, hatters, machinists, print
ers, shoemakers, tnmkmakere, tailors, and many
others are generally .thus paid. The aggregate of
their wages, however, show about the same rate of
increase as is indicated by the above table. It will
be seen that this Is a little over fifty per cent., of
to speak exactly, fifty-five per cent. The salaries
of the other classes remain about tho same through
•ati the years. Clerks of S6OOInIS6O are still paid
at that figure, and many of them find it exceeding
ly difficult to maintain a respectable appearance
on the money. The educators, however, suffer
most severely. Engaged in an important work,
that of teaching the men and women of the next
age. they are entitled—lf. worthy of retaining their
positions—to be liberally paid for their labor. Be
lore the war opened their salaries, especially those
of assistants, were much too low, now they are
below zero. • Compare SBOO per annum with tho
cost of articles as given in the following table and

These hy no means comprise all the articles
which have increased tn value, but they may serve
as types of the rest. The average percentage of In
crease as exhibited in the above tabolar statement
is eighty-two and a half per cent. The increase in
the value of labor is but fifty-five per cent., show
ing that the increased cost of living exceeds the in
creased value of wages by. nearly thirty per cent.

who are bert paid, Buffer largely from the war,
much more thou they ought, while those whose sal
aries hare met with no increase arc, of coarse, in
a much worse condition. Aa above Indicated, the
real deduction in each case would bo four to five
per cent, or perhaps more, that is his fair share,
and if the pay of one man were so much increased
as to evade this tax others most suffer more than
their proportion. The case thus resolves itself:
prices of all articles have been raised to an nnduc
figure, the extra profits have gone into the pockets
of speculators and contractors, men who have
grown rich on a sudden, taking a slice from the
loaf of every poor man in the country.
What, then, is the remedy r Plainly not to In
augurate a general rise in remuneration?, for the.
only effect of that movement would bo to raise
the price of all articles of consumption lathe same
. ratio, operate deletcriously upon the gold market
by increasing the relative values of Imported arti
cles, and thus doing good to none but those who
save a per ecu tare of their earning, and not much
to them. If this action be'pen&ltted, a inrtber
increase will bo immediately necessary, and
that would induce another, till we should see the
necessities of life commanding Richmond prices.
. It should never be forgotten that each one is In
justice called upon to pay his due proportion to
wards the expenses ot the war, and any one who
lessens that quota does so at the expense of the
community, the individuals composing which are
taxed so much extra to pay his share. Rut there
is little danger that the workers will fall under
this reproach. The fault, the stigma lies with the
class above named, those who fatten on the sor
rows ul a nation. like scum rising all the faster as
the contents of the pot boil more furious!?.
These then should be held responsible, as they
already are morally so. for the oppression of the
poor. Were the borden equalized it would sit
lightly 'on the shoulders of all. Isow it grinds
some into the dust, while others mount towards
heaven by stepping on the bodies of the fallem*
ones. In saying that a general rise would be not
only useless but mischievous, it is not Intended
to convey the idea that none should be better
paid than at present. The poor woman who toils
at hec.needle all the week, earning only a dollar
and a half, surely needs an increase. The school
teacher who toils for less than a dollar per day,
also needs an advance, and a few others must have
it if they are to continue to exist. But the root
of the evil lies elsewhere: 1c is to be found in the
selfishness of humanity which grinds down Us
fellow, with some exceptions, at every opportu
nity. They who grow suddenly rich not only fall
into temptation and a snare, but entail countless
privations upon their fellows..
KccoreTof Cases in tlic Different
Law Courts.
Emma and Edith Whiting, two young ladies
who arc accustomed to exercise the Tcrpsichorcan
Art for the benefit- and satisfaction of the good,
bad and indifferent people of the Garden City, ap
plied to Judge Wilson of the Superior Court, yes
terday, to bo relieved from on embarrassing re
straint which the said court had-imposed upon
them. , -•*
necemstiiat tiieso young ladles had been en
gaged by one Bcller, the proprietor of that expo*
sent of exaggerated culture and high water mark
of nineteenth century civilization, known os the
North Clark Street Concert Hall, to brandish their
Terpelcborcanlcally trained legs nightly in that
temple* of art for the amusement and delight of its
numerous patrons. *
The young ladles were “ engaged,” wc said; but
the “uncertainty” which the ** noble red man of
the forest” has been accustomed from time imme
morial to predleate-of th e white man, is, alas! too
often fonnd in the white woman, and even proces
sional dancers do not always keep their word. Wc
know not what unlock? wind it was that blew a
cloud of dissatisfaction between the parties to,
this engag«nent. Suffice It to say that the Misses
. Whiting left Hr. Bailor and his Concert Ball, and
gave the benefit of their contributions to tbo
*• poetry of motion** to a rival institution called
44 The Varieties,” on Dearborn street. Mr, Bcller
did not bear his misfortunes in this regard like a
mad. On the contrary, he went “beller-Ing” to
the Court, through the protracted pages of what is
described as a very Jong bill in Chancery, insisted
that if the young ladies coaid not dance for him
they ought not to dance at all, and actually pre
vailed on the Judge to tie the legs of these unfor
tunate females with an injunction, and thus
prevent them from dancing for anybody.
It was toremove this awkward and embarrassing
restraint that the young ladies in person and
by Mr. Ashton, their counsel, applied to Jndge
Wilson yesterday. It appeared from blsstatement
that the bill in chancery which had moved the
court to thin harshness Bad by some mysterious
process disappeared from the files. Hence, as de
fendants and their counsel could not he
expected to answer a statement which they had
never heard, they merely applied to the Court upon
affidavits asserting that innocence of wrong which
should be the quality of all theatrical angels, to
suspend Us severity, (or in other words. Its injunc
tion) until a new copy could be filed, and a proper
answer mode thereto, in the regular coarse of
chancery proceedings.
Legal terms are so generally misnomers that an
approximation to a befitting nomenclature is al
ways refreshing. Hence it was with delight that
wencard the Court and counsel apply the term
“auxiliary” to some affidavits sworn to by the
“hood maidens** of these captive ladies, and with
which they proposed to untie their feet.
The affidavits replying to what was supposed to
be the substance of the allegations of the bill, ad
mltted the contract between Bcller find the fair de
fendants. but declared that its terms had not been
fullfilled by Seller, and that defendants had been
released trom its performance by the express con
cession of Belief himself, made in the hearing of
ott.er parties whose affidavits to that effect were
produced to the court.'
The Court said that tbo motion, so for as it was
intended to meet the case of the disappearance of
tbo hill from the files, was a new, but In the judg
ment of the Court, a proper one.
The Court would not grant an injunction In' a
case of this kind, bnt (or the rale permitting the
party enjoined to move for Us dissolution on a day's
notice. Otherwise, the injnnctlon might work
great and unnecessary hardship. The Court assim
ilated the case to one m which the bill was on file
sz.d a regular answer was made to it, accompanied
by such affidavits as had been read to the Court.
In such case, unless complainant wore prepared
with counter affidavits under the statute of ne
treat, the Conn would consider itself bound to
dissolve the injunction. .In this case there was no
regular answer on account of the disappearance of
the bill, bnt defendant’s allegations werd a satis
factory reply to what was admitted by complain
ant's cosntel to be the substance of tho allegations
of the bin, and, as complainant was unprepared
with counter affidavits, should have the effect at
least of suspending the injunction until the bill
could be found and regularly and properly answer
ed. So the injunction should be suspended, and
the ladies be free to dance when they pleased.
A thnll of nervous ecstacy, which undoubtedly
had its origin in the feet or the now unfettered
damsels, shot through tbo court-room as this do-,
cislon was pronounced.. At its close the pretty
defendants arose and left the Court with a freedom
and elasticity of limb which indicated how heavily
the jndicial hand bad been laid upon their extrem
ities. and what satisfaction they felt In its remov
al. Their cxniaration at the result of tho day's,
proceedings imparted a zest to their efforts at the
Varieties last evening which drew down thunders
o! applause.
Sutxbzob Court, Before Jadge Van JTlgglne. —
. The finding of this Coart in the city of Cnlcago
vs.* Owen al bring a suit on McCarthy's
bond as City Collector, which we noticed a few

44 For tho plaintiff as against McCarthy the prin
cipal for sio ',(>-0 debt, to be discharged on the
payment of SV,IVB.&I damages, and for the sureties
on their plea ofa settlement between the plaintiff
and McCarthy.”
Thus a salt for a just claim in behalf of the city,
commenced yearg ago 4 and which has been hang
ing by the gijlß through three or four successive
administrations, has been brought by the tact and
energy of tho present city attorney to a successful
termination. , .

has not been usually supposed that themurcurial

cold weather very few arrests were made. The

Midwinter Navigation.—The Now York
and Brie Railroad line aro determined to have the
use of their propeller S. D. Caldwell this winter,
notwithstanding It is surrounded by a field of ice,
and must pass through, fully a mile of ice eighteen
laches thick before it reaches the lake. The mas
ter of the teesel states that there is at least 100 tons
of freight sow waiting at Milwaukee, and that it Is
rapidly accumulating—that If the boat can once
get into the lake, she can ply between Milwaukee
and Grand Haven all winter. With this view of
the case, It waa determined to get her ont of the
river, Accordingly a-contract has been entered
into with John Weinherry, who agrees to cut a
passage for the boat through the Ice, from Madi
son street to the pier, within ten days from the
time the contract was made—it being stipulated in
the contract that he gets nothing for his labor, nor
that of the army of men he Is working, unless the
contract is strictly fulfilled, Last evening the
Caldwell had reached the. loot of Franklin street,
keeping closely up with the ice-cutters, and from
the progress made thus far it is probable Wcln
berry will “make the riffle.”
Yesterday afternoon the river presented a novel
appearance—several of the fastest nags in the city
attached to cutters and sleighs racing up and down
the river, a distance of a'raile or more, while
alongside the track was the propeller S. D. Cald

A letter writer with the Army of the Tennessee,
“ Battery B, Ist Illinois Artillery, bettor known
as “Taylor’s Battery,” is about receiving new
guns, by order of Gen. Sherman. The Battery
was mustered at Chicago, June Sd, 166’, and was
first commanded by Capt. Ezra Taylor, now Colo
nel of the Ist Illinois Artillery, and Chief of Ar
tillery on the Staff of General Sherman. Capt
tain Samuel E. Barrett succeeded him and
was last summer promoted to a majority, and is
now chief of a tlflery on the staff of the 2d divis
ion of the 16th army corps. Captain J. Parsons
Rnmeeynow commands the battery. The battery
was under fire for the first time at Frederick
ton, Mlesonri, and bos been in all the battles of
the Western army. Captain Levi W. Hart, for
merly of this battery, commanded until recently
battery H—the Silverspaarfe’ battery—and
Captain P. U. White now commands tho
Mercantile battery. In addition to losses by sick
ness and discharges, eight of the company have
becnklUed in battle; It now numbers 123 for du

01 the whole number treated, as shown by onr certi
ficates, 8,120 were treated for diseases of the Bladder,
Klaneys.Gravelar.d Dropsical Swellings. The aver
age amount of medicine consumed, as per certificates,
was seven bottles* the average teem of suffering one
year and one month. Of this i-umber, SSO were fe
male*, 237 children, and the balance males.

died of these causes. Visit oor almshouses, hoscltals
and prison?, and see the mlsc y they produce. Out of
these 10,121 there were S.f'Sl males, 3,750 females. The
sex of the remaining nlimber was sot stated in le'.tera.
The average term cf suffering was 4H yean; average

term of suffering 8 months: average amount consumed
9 bottles.
The above statistics are taken from a diary kept ex
preisly for the purpose, and with great care.
The proprietors n maxing this statement, hopes that
tU motive may be appreciated. A feelUg that entire
cantoris due to sll bas prompted him to do to. lam
wen aware that many persons consider five or tea
dollars expenses: In any kind of medicine for the bene
fit of their health a watte of money, and yet these same
pereocswOl expend Lunrreda of dollars In dress and
dissipation, and think nothing of It. Such forges
That good health
Is true wealth.
Let ns look st the matter for a moment There are
astringent*, purgatives, narcotics, nelsons, diuretics,
blood purifiers, Ac. There la no conwadlcttng the fol*

To the a offering I weald say. In concln?loa thatl

chiefly of Ibis description. The expense In preparing
my articles la such that 1 cenldnot afford to conunls*
