IS WHEAT LOWERED
Canadian Editor Hrings
Fact Again to Public
Hjr C. E. SI KNOB, Bute Market Agent.
While the price of wheat in the
United Status has declined by ap
proximately && per cent since l'J17.
the price of bread has been reduced
by lesi than b per cent. In other
word the drop In wheat prices has
been ten times the drop in bread
prices.-Ontario (Canada) Sun.
This U a Canadian editorial com
ment, illustrating again the two
standards, the disproportionate re
lationship which exists between the
price of farm products and the price
of those products after other inter
ests have seized them. Wheat went
down ten points and bread one point.
From the authority of the Depart
ment of Agriculture conies the state
men that a pound lonf which cost
6.3 In 1914 now costs 9 cents, while
the margin between the flour price
and the bread price has increased
from $10.40 to $1S.30. The Depart
ment states that ttiis condition hurts
both producer and consumer and thut
"all Interests in the country, includ
ing those of the bakers and millers,
would be benefitted by the restora
tion of a normal ratio between the
price of wheat when It leaves the
farmers' hands and its price to the
consumer." The bakers are almost
solidly organized. They fix the bread
price and get it, regardless of what
they pay for flour, to it would seem.
State Grange Muster Goss of Wash
fngton state says that two million
people left the farms last year; more
than half of the population of thin
country is now living in the towns
and cities; only about one-fourth of
the people are now on the farms;
that farm mortgages are fast Increas
ing; that the farms are fast slipping
away from the farmers and farmers
fast slipping away from the farms.
Mr. Goss has for weeks been endeav
oring to get his national marketing
bill recognized by congress lenders -a
bill which would abolish speculat
ing in grain and bring agriculture
up to the other standards--but like

A dairyman at Horing, in Clacka
mas county, givt'S his system of mak
ing dairying prolituhle under prt-f-ent
condition: He da. a uilo and feeds
corn enfilade; be grows his oats and
grinds them, and he feeds a small
quantity of molasses with his hay.
ile Mays he does not feed a pound :A
miller' feeds, and he does not see
how a dairyman can make it when
he pays almost a much for bran as
the farmer gets for his whole wheat.
"Farmers are getting 1 '4 cents per
pound for their wheat and paying
cents per pound for mill feed
that has little but bran in it," Bays
tli is dairyman. "Until this profit
spread is cut down, I can't sec how
a dairyman can make money on mill
feeds to his stock."
The egg grading rules and regula
tions, recently ordered Ly J. 'D.
Mickie, state dairy and food commis
sioner, were utged. among others, by
the state market agent, whose duties
under the law are to aid standardiza
tion of products. Oregon produces
a lurge surplus of eggs that must
tirid outside markets, and they must
be graded and standardized to com
pete In the eastern markets. Like all
new laws along this line, the- egg
ruling of Mr. Mickle has been criti
cized. On one side the producers
think the ruling is too drastic while
on the other hand consumers and
members of the trade think the rul
ing is not being drastically enforced.
The same double criticisms resulted
when the potato grading law was put
into effect, but the market agent
went ahead with education of both
producers and shippers rather than
with wholesale prosecutions. The re
sult is that the law does not now re
quire much enforcement, producers,
shippers and consumers alike recog
nizing the benefits of the honest
pucks and generally observing and
upholding the law.
ECTHYMA A Com
municable Skin Disease
From Sut Hoard of Health.
This form of skin eruption Is not
strict I y speaking a disease separate
or distinct. It is rather a modified
form of Impetigo Contagiosa, and is
due to a streptococus infection the
same as Impetigo. It occurs in most
cases on the extremities, the lower
in particular, but the trunk and neck
are often attacked.
The eruption begins as a very small
Mister or vesicle but instead of the
clear anther colored rruhts of Im
petigo, the cruets are thick and dark
in color, a(ihfriti clop!v while a
slight ulceration forma beneath the
entirely destroyed epidennU. The
lesion spreads at the circumference
dissecting up a cup of epidenmU
collarette" with a red or purplish
halo surrounding. The spota vary in
ize from that of a split pea to a
half-dollar. On the backs of the
hands and on the legs large sized
crusts Usually occur and consequent- i
ly larger areas of purplish pigmenta- i
tion are left after healing whila les
ions on the trunk are much smaller
and leave small dark brown pigment
It is not uncommon to see Ecthy
ma situated solely on one or both
shin bones, forming indolent scab
bing ulcers with large purplish sur
rounding zone. It is frequently an
accompaniment of some itching dis
ease such as pediculosis corporis or
scabies, infection taking place in
abrasions produced by scratching as
the lesions are auto inocuable. Every
physician has encountered the blis
tering infection spreading from the
margin of a cut o rscratch in which
the blister soon changes to a yel
lowish color and scales over. This
is the very phenomena of Ecthyma
and is probably carried by the same
strain of streptococci which cause
the crust to change to a turbid yel
low. Three factors determine an out-
