Ussaery Trial Set for Hearing On Next Monday By the A Not ta im! Pre** TORIO, Dec. 7.—Japanese cotton yarns are soaring skyward. 'The price® ruling in the market have set new high records in the spinning industry of Japan and even threaten to exceed the record figure in the world’s market. The present quotations, if left unmodified, will soon tell on the welfare of the Japanese public who are already suffering from the advance price of cotton piece goods. The government is taking the situation seriously and recently despatched officials to Osaka, the most important center of spinning industry, to investigate the cause of the recent advance and to recommend measures for regulating prices. But the measures taken by the government so far have had no effect and quotations are still advancing. The current prices have reached such a figure that weavers can derive a large margin of profits bv manufacturing textile fabris with cotton yarns .mported from abroad. One large weaving concern in Osaka has already ordered large quantities of fine yarns from the United States and thick yarns from China. This is the first importation of foreign cotton yarns by Japanese spinning concerns. — -- Egg Roost at Seminole. Terry G.

While the great city fifty miles away goes hungry and meatless day follows meatless day, here is food in abundance and cheap. There were six meats on the dinner card of a hotel here today and every winter vegetable the climate affords. Whipped cream, butter and cheese, fresh eggs, white sugar and pastry are to be had in every restaurant. The hotels are steam heated and smoke issues from every chimney. This was the rich hinterland ef Vienna before the disruption and poured the products of its fertile fields into the capital. Now a new political boundary intervenes and not one pound of supplies may pass into Austria. The cars of the broad guage electric line may not cross the frontier. Passengers descend at the border and walk several hundred yards to another car and soldier guards at both the Austrian and Szecho-Slovakian sides search everyone carefully. Passport* are examined as if war prevailed. A business man of this city admitted to the correspondent that the region could export food in appreciable quantities as w’ell as large quantities of firewood. But the Austrian crown is so cheap and government regulations against sending food frbm the country so rigid that no negotiations seem possible.

The results of the afternoon’s work are gratifying. Over four thousand dollars have already been subscribed, with a good many members yet to be seen, some of whom are among the good givers to the work of the church. There is no reason for believing that the budget will not be reached. A good many have increased their subscriptions over last year. If the budget is raised, all obligations will be fully met, the debt on the parsonage being fully liquidated. Financially at least, the past year has been the most successful the church has ever seen. Bills have been paid more promptly and with less trouble than ever before. Very little had to be said about finances throughout the year. Brethren, let us go on in the good work so nobly begun. A full report of the year’s work will be made later.—C. V. Dunn, Minister.
