At Crater, 17 miles to the eastward
ot Crater Lake we found icicles as

' decided to press on to Red Bluff. 28
miles distant. Our driver certainly
knew how to get speed, with safety,' out
of the machine. We were not supposed
to go over 35 miles an hour and so, in
stead of increasing the miles per hour
and running 40 or 45 miles an hour, he
reduced the minutes to the hour and we

seat of Tehama county and is at the
extreme northern end of the Sacramento
valley. It is 210 miles from Ban mran-
cisco by the most direct road. - r, -
c In the old days Tehama, county was
considered good for stock raising only,
but today though muck' stock is still
raised- the big ranges have been broken
up into farms and orchards and you will
see extensive almond and apricot or
chards, as well as olive and prune or
chards and here and there oranges, figs
and pears. The H. J. Heinz company
owns extensive olive orchards In Te
hama count? and has an olive pickling
plant here. ,
' After a late slipper at Red Bluff. I
wandered around the town, sizing it up.
In one of the windows I saw a aispiay
of cotton In bloom. Falling Into con
versation with one of Red Bluffs citi
zens, I - secured a- good general idea of
the resources of Tehama county.
Tehama county's prosperity is based
on agriculture and stock raising. Hogs,
beef, cattle, sheep; dairying, poultry,
particularly turkeys, oranges, olives, al
monds, grain, fruit and alfalfa are the
money-making industries. The building
of good roads has added greatly to the
prosperity of the county for it enables
the farmer, 35 days a year, to take
largely Increased loads to market at de
creased cost for hauling. . :

"Of course,' such suggestions must be
based upon the one-way, traf He scheme,

the proposition to eliminate streetcar
traffic on Washington street, however,
Why should we make a brilliant boule

eating the ordinary and ": expected
amount of sugar and candy this year.
the sugar bowl would not now be going
in hiding anywhere in the land. So say
the experts, and they appear to have
the figures to prove it.
1 Before the war the per capita con
sumption in this country never went
beyond 85.4 pounds, and went that high
only In one year,-191S. During the war,
With rationing and exortations to econ
omy, this was reduced to 73.4 pounds
in 1918, and even then ' the' Americans
were looked upon almost as sugar glut
tons abroad, for In most foreign coun
tries the normal : consumption is rarely
above 60 or 65 pounds,
Figures of the first nine months of
the present year indicate that the reac
tion from 118 has gone beyond all cal
culations. The American consumer has
been going strong, and his average for
the year thus far is nearly 93 pounds.
178190 MORE SCGAtt
The effect of that has been, to use up
600,000 tons more in nine months than
were used last year, and about 400,000
tons more than were ever used before in
a slllmar period of time. 'Another rseult
has been to dislocate all estimates of
the sugar reserves and cause acute con
ditions here and ther, aggraavted by
strikes, which have interfered with nor
mal loading of ships.
These essentia features of the situa
tion are given by George A. Zabriskte,
chairman of the federal sugar equaliza
tion board, who. Is supposed to know as
much as anyone about the sugar supply.
With the production approximaUey
known, the problem is easily presented
in a mathematical way.
Be it remembered that the normal
sugar consumption of the country is
around 4,OO0.0OQ tons If the -United
States were using no more than the nor
mal, the demand, wouldrbe supplied from
the following sources:
The United States purchased the entire

year was estimated at more than 4.000.

appeared that there would .be an over

France from the - American - two-tiurds.
This left - approximately . 2,234,000 - tons
to come into this country from Cuba.
To this amount la to, be added the
beet ' sugar - production of the United

Louisiana cane sugar crop, which' will
run about 135.000 tons, about one-half

i Concerning pricesT' Mr. Zabriskte ex
pects the 9 cent: wholesale for refined
sugar to govern, with the Cuban crop,
but as an offer to sell en bloc has been
withdrawn: by the Cubans, and the pur
chase may have to be made In the open
market,' this may not work out. The
beet sugar price is expected to be 10
cents, and the Louisiana crop will com
mand a little .more than that,' because
of the unusual shortage In that section.
