On Way Here again bread meat Tea to be dearer steady rises bread meat Tea motor cars and radio sets Are some of the commodities that Are to follow wheat and Wool into the realm of higher prices. So the ques Tion has Arisen whether our old Friend h. C. L. High Cost of living which gave housewives so much trouble Sev eral years ago will be soon with us i again.

This decision on the part of master Bakers was made when flour Rose to �9 10/ a ton. Although there has been a Good Deal of criticism of Bakers because of this the president of the master Bakers association or. M. G. Linn said today that flour had since risen to �9 12/6 a ton.

A Penny or twopence a Pound More will be paid by housewives for Tea on monday.

Already British manufacturers have indicated that radio prices will be increased and it was stated in Adelaide today that local manufacturers might be compelled j to follow the Lead of British makers. The higher Cost of steel brass and rubber if Given As the cause for higher prices for completed Seta. The payment of royalties on patents was also Likely to increase the Price by �2 or �3 a bet according to one local dealer.

Rangoon is one of the most curious and mysterious places in the world. A town has existed on the site of Rangoon since the sixth Century . It was always called Dagon Down to the capture of the City by the burmese Sovereign Lompra towards the end of the eighteenth Cen Tury. That Prince rebuilt the place and called it Rangoon.
