This, if I were building, would be the price; but when I had deducted the protective tax on lumber, glass, shingles, hard ware, and paint, I found the real cost of my house was only five hun dred dollars. Here is a dead loss td me of three hundred dollars. I had paid three hundred dollars to the Carnegie set to keep up their palaces and tally-hos at home and in Scotland. My stable, also a frame one, cost mo four hundred dollars. Calcula ting as before, I found the same pro portion held good, and I am skinned to keep up the protectionists to the tune of one hundred and fifty dollars another loss to me of that amount. I have a pair of old work horses. The harness on these cost me forty dollars; the unnecessary tax is four teen dollars surely a loss. Mv three ploughs cost ma thirty dollars.
