Silver bullion has reached the high...

1893, when the United States government
went out of the market as a purchaser.
It Is now selling at slightly
. above 70 cents an ounce. At the ratio

the International Exchange Commission.

Philippines, ami in' its essentials in
Mexico. This latter legal barrier slitter
has broken over, tne new price
compelling a revision of the standard
and a lessening of the bullion value
of the coins. The.reasons for the re
cent advance In silver are clear. The
Increasing supplies of gold. In which
all the other eommodies are measur

that from this acre more than twice
the usuad crops can be harvested. If
this is done ten acres will next be
tried, and after that the farmer is expected
to need no urging.
It is cf particular inte'rest that the
, women of the farms are enthusiastic
over the programme.. While It la true
that gardening will be tried to some
\ extent, that is not the whole purpose
I of the movement. Rather, it Is to
{show bow tbe larger crop mar be increased,
and here h is more a question
of scientific treatment than of extra
'abor. The very fact that labor is so
difficult to secure Is the reason for
I making each acre produce as much

because the laborer prefers to be
