Hew World Questions Affect the Cost
of Living.
"What have I to do with wars be
tween Russia and Poland! Wh are
the Czecho slovaks, where is Teichen,
and what does it matter to me what
becomes of it ?" Such are the ques
tions rather impatiently asked by the
average man, and perhaps still more
the average woman. They think that
politics, like charity, should begin at
home, and when the discussion wan
ders oft to foreign parts they feel jus
tified in returning to the undisturbed
contemplation of the news from Ep
som or Old Trafford. What have they
to do with bolsheviks? If they wish
for a plain answer they cannot do
better than study Mr. Gosling's speech
to the transport workers at South
ampton. The prime concern of the houewife
to-day is to get necessaries at sone-
thine less than prohibitive prices.

the wav in which we are dealing with i
them that made food dear, materials ,
dear, sugar dear, and that cut off the i
avenues into which our export ade
might expand.
We are indirectly getting a lesson in
the economics of protection, for im
ports from Germany and .Russia are
virtually cut off, and we see one of
the results in the impossible prices
which have nullified the increases of
cash wajjes. Mr. Goslin very rightly
draws the moral that the greatest pos
sible freedom of trade is one of the
conditions of increased productivity of
labor. People complain that labor,
while paid more, is producing less.
Thev forget the handicap of shortage
in tiie materials and implements of in
