The returns sent to this oflice by the manufacturers of agricultural implements and machinery contain many expressions of opinion with regard to the course of prices and the reasons therefor, and to other matters pertaining to the industry.

Buggz'e.s.--We are building a better buggy to-day for $125 than was built in 1860 for $250 to $300, and other vehicles in proportion.

During the fall of 1899 there was an advance in the price of implements, owing to an advance in all kinds of raw material, but on the fall in the price of material, which occurred about May or June of 1900, the price of implements was lowered correspondingly, so that the price named for 1900 is the present (October 22, 1900)...show more
