The Library of Congress has prepared a select list of references on the cost of living and high prices. The list of references attempts to di rect attention to the literature of the subject contained In the Library of Congress. Matter relating to condi tions In the United States has received the first consideration, but all the more Important foreign publications of typ leal European cities have been Includ ed as affording excellent material for comparison.

As n com paratlve treatment of prices ls hardly practlcoble without the use of Index numbers, references to the latter have also been Included.

The face of nil things wears a frown, Or on the earth or on the skies: Oo on, unpltylng world, go on Pour all thy vengeance on my head And when the cup's last dregs are gone I, then, shall have no more to dread, Long hnvo I tolled to live In vain For life Is nought, devoid of rest; Long struggled with the strife for fame Long kept my sorrows In my breast. Why was I made; or why thus born The sport of every wayward gale? Launched on an ocean dark, forlorn; A leaky, shattered, crass salt Without a compass or a guide. Without a rudder In a storm. Without an anchor where to ride, An chased around In every storm. Noiipm no haven, where to steer; No chart, a sen without a shore: No Jaioy, or light or beacon near; No one to weep w hen I'm no more.
