THE MILLERS' COMBINATION.
TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—l have read " Householder's " letter re the price of bread, and Venture to state the time is inopportune to raise the price of the " staff of life." With declining markets for breadstuffs at Home no very great prospects exist for the coming harvest,. The new departure of the patent " Eredyke" system of machine-made bread, which assarts its capability of producing each 21b loaf Id cheaper than by present process—more nourishing, appetising, and palatable" should warn our bakers that BUch a thing as a co-operative cheap bread supply is attainable, and that the public are not going to stand the proposed rise in price without demur. If we adopt the N.A.P. system, instead .of a rise we shall have a reduction of 2d per 41b loaf—a consideration to large families.—l am, etc., Another Householder. Dunedin, October 2.
