Washington, D. C Needless con
tlnuation of bread-saving habits form
ed in war time, department of agri
culture officials declared in a state
mont issued Monday, is limiting Amer
lean wheat consumption to the dis
advantage of both producer and con
A return to pre-war food habits in
the use of wheat by the public and
the feeding of low-grade wheat to live
stock, department experts asserted,
would help greatly toward solving the
wheat problem.
The wide disparity between the cost
of bread to the consumer and the price
received by the producer for the whoat
from which it is made is cited by the
department as an illustration of the
disproportionate relationship which
exists between the price of farm prod
ucts and the price of things that have
gone through a manufacturing process.
"Tho price of bread in cities has
not fallen with the price of wheat and
flour," says the statement. "A pound
loaf of bread, which in Minneapolis in
11113-14 cost 5.3 cents, now costs ap
proximately 9 cents, while flour, which
in 1913-14 cost $4.43 a barrel, now
costs $6.89. Allowing 280 loaves to
the barrel, the margin between the
flour prico and the bread price has
increased from $10.40 to $18.30.
"It is obvious that such conditions,
however caused, work to the disad
vantage of both producers and con
sumers. Producers are injured by the
restriction which is caused in the de
mand and consumers are injured by
high prices which enforce an unecono
mic limitation in the use of an essen
tial food. All interests in the country,
including those of the bakers and mill
ers, would bo benefited by tho restor
ation of a more normal ratio between
the prico of wheat when it leaves the
farmers' hands and its price to the

Washington, D. C. Retailers who
represent themselves to bo selling
army and navy supplies from the Uni
ted States governnient7"whcn in fact
they are not bo doing, will encounter
opposition from tho federal trade com
mission. An order in tho matter was
issued Monday by tho commission
against H. Mailender, an operator of
stores in Indiana, requiring him to de
sist. The custom was said to secure
for the dealer an unfair advantage
over competitors, based on misrepre
sentations. A retailing custom, exemplified, the
commission said, by the Jenkins Knit
ting Mills company of Provo, Utah,
was also attacked. Tho concern was
ordered to eliminate from its corpor
ate name tho suggestion that it oper
ated its own knitting manufactory, be
cause in fact it does not do so.

Referring to tho European develop

"Owing to what has happened in
the last year, the restoration of nor
mal trade conditions throughout the

probably has been postponed, not for
a matter of months, but a matter of
The ex-premier asserted that the
liberal party's remedy for unemploy
ment was the restoration of peace in
Europe. "Let the angel of peace be
given a chance in Europe," he said.
France was beginning to realize
that there were no reparations in her
policy, he continued.
"A year ago last August," he said
"I told M. Poincare in London that it
you invade the Ruhr you will have no
cash but wagon loads of trouble.' 11
has had no cash and has had tons of
trouble and there will be more unless
ho gets out.
"He has started on the path that
made the most horrible war in his
tory. It was the invasion of France
the annexation ot French territory
that rankled in the soul of France
creating a temperature which at last
broke out into a fever, which spread
to Europe, America, Asia and Africa
the whole world suffered from It.
"Tho beginning was an attempt by
the Germans to annex territory which
didn't belong to them. Poincare lias
committed the world to exactly th
same policy now."
The French peasant, he said, was
very shrewd and when he realized he
was not getting the reparation to which
he was entitled, his common sense
would come to the rescue. He was
beginning now to realize it. In the
next place Italy, which at first sanc
tioned the invasion, was against it,
and Belgium was growing disillusioned.
But the greatest fact of all was that,
for tho first time since the retirement
of President Wilson, America was
coming in. She was entirely with
Great Britain on the settlement of
this policy, ho declared, and then he
'Does anyone mean to tell me that
with America and the British empire,
the two greatest communities of earth
and with Italy agreeing, it there Is
anyono there who can handle the sit
uation firmly, wisely and tenaciously,
you cannot impose conditions upon
anybody, provided they nro just?"
Discussing tho British credit, the
former premier said, it is almost as
good as America's, and "had it not
been for the foolish settlement of Mr.
Baldwin's, it would have been just as
good as America's by now."
He apparently was referring to the
funding of the British war debt to the
United States.
Chicago. Increases in wages affect
ing approximately 5500 railroad teleg
raphers and station agents and aggre
gating approximately $364, 4S2 were)
awarded in a decision announced Sun
day night by the United States rail
road labor board.
The board explained that it had at
tempted to correct existing inequali
ties without attempting standardiza
tion and without granting a general
increase. The payment of a punitiTe
rate of time and one half for overtime
to telegraphers and station agents also
was awarded and a few other changes
in rules were authorised.
Austria to Get Shilling
Vienna. Minister of Finance Kiea
bocck informed the national assembly
that, subject to its approval, he would
immediately introduce a silver "shil
ling" coinage in Austria, the repress,
tative coin being 10.000 kronen nnit
the value of the otuers 5000 and 8,-
000. The "shilling," the minister de
clared, would not represent a new
monetary unit, but later would be as
sociated with a new currency unit.
Physician and Surgeon
"v.VOE there was a little girl named
Lucy who was never ready to go
to bed when bedtime came around.
She fretted and pouted and grew so
disagreeable that one night her moth
er told her she could go to bed when
she liked but she was certain she
would wish she had gone at the right
Lucy was sitting on a rug In front
of the fireplace, so she curled up with
her book and began to read, quite sure
she would not be sorry she did not go
to bed early.
The firelight danced on the book
she was looking at and Lucy thought
once she could almost see some little
fire-imps dancing in the snapping
wood fire.
Her yes seemed to feel queer but
she rubbed them she was not a bit
sleepy. She was sure of that. It must
be the warm Are that made them feel
so queer.
The house seemed very still and
then suddenly from right out of the
"Here Is Another Stayup," Said the
fireplace there stepped one of the very
imps Lucy had thought she caught a
glimpse of.
He wore a red and black cape over
a tightly fitted suit of black and on
Ids head a black- cap with a waving
red feather.
At the tips of his shoes were the
same sort of wuvy feathers and on
his fingertips as well.
"So you sat up late tonight, did
you?" lie said to Lucy. "Well, come
along with me. All children should be
in bed before tills. Don't you know
this is the magic hour and It belongs
to us imps and other magic folks?"
Lucy did not wish to go with this
queer little creature, but she did not
seem to have anything to do with it.
The Imp just touched her with his
feathery-tipped fingers and away she
went right into the fireplace and up
the chimney.
Not away up, but a little way ; and
then a door opened and in she went
and the imp with her Into a room all
red and black. In a big high chair sat
a big red and black Imp a Grand
mother Imp, Lucy thought, because
she wore a ruffled cap of black around
her red face.
"Here's another stayup," said the
imp who had brought her, and then
on the floor around the Grandmother
Imp's chair Lucy saw a number of
children asleep.
The door closed with a click and
Lucy saw that the little imp had gone.
"He has gone to find more stayup chil
dren," said the Grandmother Imp.
"We will get them all in here after
"What will you do with them?"
asked Lucy, who had found her tongue
and was getting a bit frightened. She
wished she was In her own room in
bed and not in this red and black
"I can't tell you that until my hus
band comes home," said the Grand
mother Imp. "He has a different pun
ishment for every night, but this Is
your first night here, so he won't be
as hard on you as some of the others
who have stayed up before. But you
lie down beside the other stayups and
go to sleep until he comes."
Lucy could not find a soft spot on
the floor. She tried resting her head
on her arm, she curled up as she had
on the big fur rug in front of the fire
place. But it was no use. She could
not sleep.
"Click, click," Lucy heard. She was
sure It was the Grandfather Imp turn
ing the lock in the door. He had
come to punish the stayups. Up she
jumped and found herself standing on
the fur rug In front of the fireplace.
The room was dark, the .house
seemed very still, the fire was not
burning very brightly and a dying em
ber snapped. That was what she had
heard and it awakened her.
Lucy made her way up to her room,
but it was very pokey all alone at that
hour of the night; nobody to say
good-night and kiss you or tuck you
in. And when Lucy crept into bed
and pulled the bedclothes around her
she made up her mind she would
never be a stayup again and let the
red and black Imp catch her.
