part of the normal supply. The con
dition that exists at present is
unique since 1S01, with the exception
of two months, ten yonrs ngo, when
tho impoit of rags was shut off by
the government because of tho fear
of spreading bubonic plnguo. Kuril

that tho embargo wns soon lifted.
Not only is thn supply of import
rags cut off, but the domestic prod

makers, who nro nblo in this way, it
h said, to add to siipplieH of guncot
ton and other high cxploshes. This
makes it doubly difficult for the pn
pnrmnkoni and, indeed, impossible
for them to procure n supply. In
fact, the American Writing 1'npot

Veiled to shut down ten of its millfl
