The above represents the orders

That is $180,000 worth of loganberry juice.

from Eastern jobbers.
But the managers h re KNOW that the two million four hundred
thousand bottles are going to the soldier boys.
The way orders are being booked now, it is quite plain that there
will be no loganberry juice left when the first berries of the new crop
will be ready to crush, in July.
The supply will be exhausted, and the dealers will be yelling for
The reader must conclude, from the facts mentioned at the open
ing of this article, that loganberry juice is the Liberty drink. It is the
Liberty drink par excellence. "The taste lingers" The soldier boys
will want more of it, and they will want still more, when they get
back into civil life, not for drinking purposes only ; not even mainly.
They will want it for flavoring and icing and coloring, and for ice
cream, and all the uses of the kitchen, where it is destined to play its
largest part in the life and living of the nation and the world.

is to he hoped that all Canada Is as
free of "defeatism" and of faint
heartedness as hat statement shows
Mr. Bryan to be. He is not clamor
ing for the beginning of peace nego
tiations, because he sees that the
only kind of a peace obtainable
now by negotiations would be a
peace of defeat. There is, however.
nothing surprising in this attitude
of Mr. Bryan's. He showed more re
luctance to have the United State3
pnter the war than many of us
thought was compatible with a just
sense of its duty or its interest. But
once his judgment was overruled by
the country, he submitted to It with
a completeness and grace which may
be held up as a splendid example of
patriotism. However much of a pac
if 1st Mr. Bryan may have been, he
at all events interned vhis pacifism
for the duration of the war and has
rbown that his pacifism is of th-3
kind that is entirely compatible with
latriutism.(-Dallas, Texas, News.

HOW GKKMAXY IS ISATIOXKD.
Nearly every commodity is now
rationed in Germany. Cards ar?
row in use for bread, meat, potatoes
and sugar, for eggs, milk, cheese,
fish, marmalade, vegetables, soan,
coal, underwear, clothing, boots and
choes indeed, for almost every im
aginable thing. For a number cf
things cards are not issued, but per
mission to buy these must be obtain
cu before they can be had, and then,
even after running from shop ti
shop, it often happens that the ar
ticle is not procurable. Even scour
ing clothes for scouring floors come
under this heading, and cannot t?
bought anywhere without specip.l
Fowls, geese and other varieties
oi poultry are not classed as meat,
and can therefore still be had with
out cards, but the prices asked are
so high that only the very rich can
buy them. Fowls, for instance, are
sold at $1.25 to $2.00 per -pound,
that a fowl of, say 4 pounds we'ght
costs from $5 to H. Geese cost an
even larger sum, and it is nothing
out of the common in Berlin to pay
$25 for a goose, and not a fat or
heavy one at that. In some shoj3
of the better class sausages suppos
ed to be made of the flesh of fowls
can be had at $2 to $3 a pound.
When dining at a restaurant or
hotel the customer must, if he wish
es a course in which any rationed
eatable is contained, prove that. he

and hand over a portion of the said
card corresponding to the weight
given to the waiter.
The allowance of bread (very dark
colored and made of rye, eked out
with potatoes,) Is about three an 1
cne-half pounds per week for each
person; meat, one-fourth pound; po
tatoes, five to seven pounds per head
weekly. A working man is entitled
to seven pounds of potatoes a week,
whereas those engaged in lighter oc
cupations are entitled to but five
pounds. The allowance of butter
amounts to but one ounce per head
a week. The cheese ration is figur
ed at a quarter of a pound a month.
Each person is allowed cne egg every
three weeks and a family of thre-
is entitled to buy one herring each
The meat allowance of a quarter
of a pound weekly includes every
thing in the meat; line that is to
eay, sausage, or suet, or fats of anv
kind. Tea and cocoa are hardly ob
tainable. As much as $10 per poun-l
i? paid, and only, small quantities
are to be had even at that price.
Coffee is unprocurable. Recent ar
rivals from Berlin declare that it is
a riddle how the pVople manage t,o
exist at all. The mortality rate Is
raid to lie very high among the el
derly people and young children, j
Soap, that is to say the real ar
ticle, is unprocurable. The card al

soap powder for washing clothes,
etc., but it Is said to be such a vIH
concoction that it is almost impos
sible to use it. For a cake of good

A BLOW A WHISKY.
Canadians protest against being
called upon to continue gong with
out wheat bread in order to ship
their grain to England, where part
cf it, at least until lately, has bten
distilled into. alcohol that is used in
the production of spirituous bever
ages. The Ottawa Conference of
Women, with the Canadian. Wai De
partment, resolved: "That to pro
vent this waste of foodstuffs the
trilling of grain be done in Canada,
and only the manufactured articles
be exported to Great Britain, until
such time as remedial legislation
prohibiting such destruction of food
stuffs be enacted in Great Britain."
Home writera think this action
should be followed in the I'nited
States by an embargo against the
exportation of unmilled wheat, corn,
rye or barley. As was stated by the
Canadian temperance lecturer.; Mrs.
Nellie MeClung: "The elimination
of alcoholic beverages on an empire
prohibition basis is one of the cer
tain reforms which will evolve from
this world-wide conflict. The Ikjuor
traffic is too expensive a proposition
