1897 raw commodities advanced and manufactured declined. From 1898 to 1900 there was a decided advance in both

groups

each

year, raw commodities advancing to a higher point than manufactured. In 1901 there was a very slight decline in raw and a more marked decline in manufactured commodities. In 1902 both groups made a decided advance, raw commodities much the greater, and in 1903 both slightly advanced. In 1904 both raw and manufactured commodities declined, but in 1905 both groups advanced. In 1906 both made a sharp advance, and another advance, equally great, was made in both groups in 1907. In 1908 both raw and manufactured commodities declined.

In 1909 both general groups advanced, but the increase in raw was much more marked than in manufactured commodities. In 1910 both groups advanced, but manufactured commodities made the greater gain. Both the raw and manufactured groups in March, 1910, were at the highest point attained during the 21 years covered.

For the period included in this table it will be seen that generally during the years of high prices raw commodities were higher than manufactured commodities, and during the years of low prices raw commodities were lower than manufactured commodities. This is more clearly shown in the graphic table on page 326. PRICES OF COMMODITIES, BY MONTHS, JANUARY, 1900, TO DECEMBER,
