A. tar- away from her sister, Mrs.. 1 J. J. McLeod of Inverness, Scotland, the cohdltons In Great Britain are set forth. The writer stated Great Brit^ aid is the worst taxridd en country in the world. Mrs. McLeod writes that unemployment is largely the keynote of conditions.

Domestic help is cut' down to the lowest limit causing of course more unemployment. : Tariff has been removed from agricultural products, subsidized grain, and has Just about.put the farmers down and out, yet the paradoxical fact of the high cost of living accompanies this condition; egg's are from 72 to'78 cents a dozen and lamb chops 36 cents a pound, othor meats in proportion. ' -She describes the fogs experienced in London and Glasgow, where arc lights kre almost useless, only piercing the gloom for a short distance making travel on foot difficult and dangerous. In Glasgow residents "carried small torches which gave a queer and uncanny appearance to the foggy streets. One-old lady died in the street when on her return home from visiting a friend.
