Mr. Morgan explained every detail of. the operation of consolidated schocls, and even those who 'were ag- ainst "the plan In the beginning are be- ginning to look upon it with favor. The net result of the meeting was an. application to the minister for a date when consolidation might be con- summated, and placed before the rate- payers for approval or rejection. The proHpect of having available high school facilities wan parttcularly attroctive to the farmers, and it is ex- pected tbat they will strongly en- dorse the enterprise.

He quotes the fol- lowing from Dun's Ilevieiv Linens arc becoming scarce and pric- es are being moved, higher every week. The iindcilying cause is tho shortage oE RAX brought on by tho war in Europe. Contributing causes are the requirements of coarse liucus for war purposes, Lhe very high rales of transportation and the inability to guarantee deliveries even when prices asked can be paid. Klax values have already reached levels never before known in thc trade. Belgian and Rus- sian supplies have been cut oft, and German and Austrian home require- ments are taking all that is available in those countries, while Dutch and Irish supulies am limited in volume and arc being taken at any price for which they can be bought. Mills abroad' are now running to hut CO per cent, of their-capacity and leading jobbers in this-coaatry havo been notified that supplies may not be coimlcd on after June 1. Even though there ;s. doubt as to whether consumers will want to pay the pric- es that are likely to be asked many distributors are selling forward de- liveries subject to their ability to have orders given now filled at any lime in the near Future. Several man- [ufacturers of linen" damasks and other household lines have already changed over their looms to cotton Roode, while the domestic mills that can, make cotton damasks have a gceat deal oi. business iu hand, some of them running at night to fill orders, agents arc agreeing with buyers that deliveries of'the'goods will" not be forced if prices when named appear tup. high. While cotton goods of many hincls can readily be substituted lor nearly all purposes for which linens arc used, the latter at any price will continue iu demand to some extent, but from present advices there Is lit- tle reason to hope for any reduction for at least a year" to come.
