When figures began to show def
initely that the people of the United

consumption of foods needed abroad,
tbe fniteil Slates Komi Admlnls
(ratlon was told that It was com
paratively easy to bring about conser
vation Of Staple necessities, but that t
would be far more difficult to accom
plish an actual decrease In the use of

nn eample, and declared Hint It would
be practically Impossible to bring our
consumption of sugnr down to a point
that would meet only the food needs
of the people.
Now that demands upon ocean ton

tions will be able to go farther afield
for foodstuffs, and will no longer be
entirely dependent fpr sugar upon
North Amerlcun supplies. With the
stocks now In prospect, we will have
sufficient sugnr to place this country
back upon normal consumption If the

not materially Increased. If the Eu

It can he only through the American

The fact that the Food Administra
tion has been able to relax the volun
tary sugar ration Is in ItOQH proof that
the ration of two pounds per person
per month was generally observed
throughout the country. This conser
vation allowed the Kood Administra
tion to build up n reserve, and to tide
over the period of scarcity, until the
the new crops of Louisiana cane ami

production for the fall of 1018 and the

available last year. Without this In

This is a story of two American
wars. It begins with the assault
of the American forces upon the
Spanish defenders of Santiago
in the days of 98 and the saenes
of the closing chapters are laid
upon the steel-swept fields of
France where the soldiers of the
great republic of the western
world are battling the foes of
humanity and civilization.
Intrigue, mystery, chivalry, love,
feats of bravery on the field of
honor all these elements are
interwoven in a story that
mystifies and grips and thrills.
This first up-to-the-minute novel
of the new America the Ameri
ca upon whose arms rests the
fate of the world will appear as
a serial in this paper, beginning
in an early issue.
