. YTOUDS OF WISDOM. MY PEOPLE,— .. Wlien. a demand arises for. an article, and if the Supply"should n?} be quite equal to thn. demand,', it' a scarcity, consequently'higrer prices. English ideap and customs nave been introduced into the Orient, •and are spreading rapidly; this, along with the world's increasing population, has caused an extra demand, for all kinds of food, etc., and as the producing area has not increased correspondingly, it at once reflects on the producing countries, and' raises prices. Great .Britain is the only' free trade country of any importance in the world.' In Great Britain, only a few days ago. a Commission was appointed to inquire irlo the reasons why the cost of lirhg had increased. It has been officially stated, while th 9 cost' of livinc. had increased CO per cent, during tho last twenty-five yean, wages had only increased IS per cent.
