bits more for a sack of flour. The
flour ground from the $2.20 wheat will
arrive in the city in a day .or two. On

ing that all flour in the state be sent
to Fran.ce, thero is very little old flour
on hand. The food administration back

It is now godbye to frostings on cakes
anj pies. Such things are now taboo,
according to the wishes of tho state

county. It seems that Polk county has
been getting along without the faucv
frostings but has been somewhat dis
turbed from the fact that the bakeries
of bulem have been shipping into the
county souio of the forbidden fruit.
Hence the bakeries will be asked to fill
their Polk county orders for pies and
cakes minus the fancy trimmings.
