Local dealers in crackers have been notified of an advance in prices by the manufacturers. The advance is j only a centi a pound, but is the first (turn of the screw by the trust mag- nates, who have recently combined the New York, Amarican and United States Biscuit companies. It is said that this increase in prices means $7,500 a day, or $2,700,000 a year added to the revenues of the trust. WELL WORTH SAVING. Interest Now Paid on the Bond* Depof itecl by the National Banks. There is now outstanding paper currency of the United States amounting iu round figures to $750,000,000. This is a debt of the government on which no interest is paid, and which Secretary of the Treasury Gage and tha Ke- pnblican national bunk administration at Washington are trying to have redeemed in bonds bearing 2 or 2,^.' per cent interest a year. This they want done in order that the government may get out of tho "banking business," as they put it, but their aim is more correctly described as trying to turn a very important function of government—the furnishing of money, whether paper promises to pay coin or coin itself—over almost exclusively to the bauks. The proposition is a monstrously dangerous one to our entire political system, bnt its cost every year to the people in cases is also a matter of the highest importance. The interest at :i per cent on this $750,000,000 will amount to $15,000,000, which, while it is only about 3}£ per cent of tho total expenses of the government under Republican extravagance, is nevertheless quite a large sum to be used in subsidizing the national banks. Instead of wasting this amount on an already very much favored class •we ought to go to v?ork and save what we are now paying on the bonds deposited by the bauks as security for their outstanding notes. The saving that could be thus effected is not so large as the national bank administration proposes to throw away in a lump, but it amounts to some millions of dollars nevertheless and could be employed to the advantage of the people instead of helping, as it does now, to swell the dividends of the favored money lenders.—New York News. - You can't expect that your home will be comfortable and pleasant unless you make it so.

The Nebraska station last winter made experiments with a view to arriving at the fuel value of corn. It was decided that when coal was selling at $G. «5 per toil the ffK- value of corn was $3.50 per ton. or 12.^ cents per bushel. Coal must sell as low as $5.41 per ton to be as cheap fuel as corn at 10 cents per bushel. When corn is 13 cents per bushel, it is worth, to burn, as much as coal when it sells at $8. 11 per ton. These comparisons are made with screened Rock Springs nut coal, commonly used in Lincoln, Neb. Acricultanl Schools In Iowa. The Iowa Agricultural college is at Ames. W. M.
