It is estimated by some woollen spinners that the Brit ish government made 60,000,000 pounds from the sales of Australian wool last year and thus far in 1920. Replying to charges that both the government and the Yorkshire spin ners had made excessive profits, Sir Arthur Goldfinch, chairman of the Wool Council of the Ministry of Mu nitions, told a representative of the Evening Standard that it was true the government was reselling merina and cross-bred wool from Australia ana New Zealand at a price "very much higher" than the basic price at which It was purchased 'It was clearly understood, he said, longer needed for military purposes , it should be sold at market rates and the dominions should receive one-half of the profit Australia and New Zea land are clearly entitled to this. "The rise in wool Is confined to tbe more expensive quanlitles merino and fine cross-bred. Medium and low cross-bred wools are abouMthe same price as in 1916, calculated In British Km mi Inula iath fti United States, Dutch and Scandinavian cur rency the prices for such classes of wool are considerably cheaper than they were during the war, and almost the same as they were six year3 ago. "There has been ag reat run on the finer classes of wool, which are now being consumed more rapidly than they are grown, and a great rise in price was natural and almost inevita ble." Yorkshire spinners say that they simply could not help making profits. "A spinner has nothing to do in these j days but sit still," said one. "and money rains in his lap." A trade correspondent ot the Times asserts that prices have been rushed up by the demand from the continent The bulk of the wool on cloth and a large proportion of the worsted, it is stated, is going to Germany through the three Scandinavian countries Before the war Holland boasted that It had a dairy cow for every per son living In the rural districts.

It was se rum prepared by vetrlnary scientists of the bureau of animal industry for experimental purposes In treating for age poisoning of horses that saved the life of Lena Delbane- after the other six members of her family had died from eating poisonous olives" in New York recently, according to the De partment of Agriculture. The serum was made from the blood of a sheep that had been immunized against baciullus botullnus poisoning. In Investigating forage poisoning of horses the bureau ot animal Indus try made extensive experiments with serums and discovered there were two strains of bacillus botulinous.

The veterinarians, therefore, were reasonably certain that the serum af fording protection against the poison generally generated by "the olive strain" would be effective in the New York cases, and it proved to be in the one case where it conld be given a fair trial.

ONLY TWO HUNDRED TWO WORDS Every member of the United States Senate and of the House of Represen tative that has held office since 1823 has at some time or other discussed the Monroe Doctrine. There is not a person in this country who has not heard o that famous document. Dur ing the past year it has perhaps been the subject of mot;e discussion than at any previous time. The indica tions are that It will be discussed considerably during the present year. Comparatively few people, however, have ever taken the trouble to read it, being under the impression that It is of great length. As a matter of fact, It contains only 202 words. It was contained in President Monroe's message to Congress a little more than ninety-six years ago December 2, 1823, in the following words: "In tbe Uiacusalon to which this in terest has given rise, and in the ar rangements by which they may term inate, the occasion has been deemed proper for asserting as a principle in which rights, and Interests of the United States are Involved, that the American Continents, by the free and independent condition which they have assumed and maintain, are henceforth not to be considered as subjects of future colonization of any European power. We owe it, there fore, to candor and to the amicable relations existing between the United States and those powers to declare that we should consider any attempt on their part to extend their system to any portion of this hemisphere as dangerous to our peace and safety. With the existing colonies of depend encies ot any European power we have not interfered and shall not In terfere. But with the governments who have declared their Independence and maintain it, and whose independ ence we have, on great consideration and on just principles, acknowledged, we could not view any interposition for the purpose of oppressing them or controlling In any other manner thMr destiny by any European power in any other light than as the manifesta tion of an unfriendly disposition to ward the United States."
