The greatest parade in the history
of New York City marched through its
streets on November 24. It was a
procession of over 100.000 Jews dress
ed ic mourning who were protesting
against massacres of Jews in Vkrania.
Nearly 25,000 returned soldiers and
sailors of that race helped swell the:
procession as it march. to an old

Government investigators now re

in September. To be exact, they find
a decrease of two-tenths of 1 per cent
in the retail price of 22 staple articles.

decline in cattle, sheep, potatoes, corn

Naturally, too, one remembers Wil

strike for higher wages or better con
ditions unjtil the government has had
time to lower the cost of living. At
the present rate the cost ot living will
.lall 1 per cent in five months and by
January 1924 it will be down about 10
per cent, or enough for the worker
to notice. The appreciable difference
of eay 26 to 30 per cent, which would
not equal what the worker» have gone

The Pig Club Sale held at Wilmot
Saturday by County Agent Buchanan
was a big success. The total receipts
ot tjhe sale were $4,846.60. The boys
had a fine lot of hogs, some of which
.went for record prices. The top was
reached by Kenneth Walker who had
a Chester White Sow and four gilts*
which brought
the best bred boar to be found to cross
on them.
Myron Schleimm was not far be
hind in the list. His sow and eleven
pigs brought him a total of $925.50.
The six boars and five sows were as
uniform in size and .quality as any
litter could be. It is hard to esti

a litter like they were. Myron al
