A NATION'S FOOD SAVING.

more than the previous year. This was despite the fact
that the cereal crop was short and that we had practically
only enough for home consumption. Of these cereals
one hundred and thirty-five million bushels were wTheat.
We had allotted the allies all that it was thought possible
to spare, yet when they stated they had to have seventy
five million bushels more, Mr. Hoover undertook to raise
the quantity by an appeal to the patriotism of the Amer
ican people. His reliance was well borne out by the re
sults, for Americans denied themselves the use of flour
to such -an extent inat we sent eignty-iive minion ousneis,
or ten million more than was asked. During the fiscal
year we shipped to the allies three million pounds of meats
and fats, an increase over the preceding year of eight
hundred and forty million pounds. This too, in spite of the
fact that our supply for the year was rather under the
normal. It was economy in the use of these articles, by
Americans, that made this splendid showing possible, lhe
outstanding feature of the movement is that it was entire
ly voluntary, the people responding generously and cheer
fully to the demand, and it may be said, almost universally.
It is the most emphatic answer to the German taunt that
we are a nation of dollar chasers that has been made. We
found it no very difficult thing to do, and though we must
continue to conserve, we will find it still easier because it
has become, as it were, a habit. We have 250,000,000
bushels more wheat than last year, but until the war is
ever we must try and keep some surplus to meet another
possible short year.
The treasury department has completed its report on
"profiteering," and shows 31,500 concerns are involved.
It is claimed the packers are the worst offenders, but this
may well be doubted, for nothing is said of the milling
trust. With the price of wheat and flour fixed, and that
of all substitutes left at the mercy of the millers and job
bers, this field is such a splendid one that to even imagine
it has not been exploited is an insult to the American busi
ness shark. Wheat has remained practically at last year's
price but flour increased 17 per cent. This shows crooked
ness on the face of it, but when it is remembered that all
the wheat substitutes are in the control of the big trust
it can be understood why corn flour costs more than that
made from wheat, although the corn is 75 cents a bushel
less. It is the same with all other substitutes. The sharks
control the substitutes and the government requires the
consumer to use the latter on a fifty-fifty basis with flour.
This is a regular cinch for the speculators, the big fellows.
All those found guilty of profiteering should be made to
leave the country and remain out of it, that is if they are
permitted to remain outside of the prisons a day of their
lives. However, there is no country except Germany
that anyone would want to wish the gang onto.
A writer in the Saturday Evening Post discussing th -
"fight or work" laws calls attention to difficulty the
authorities have in deciding in many cases whether a per
son not working is liable to punishment, and calls atten
tion to those who have considerable properties which re
iuire practically all their time to look after. He among
other things asks: "Shall a poet he put at work breaking
rock on the public highway?" This of course is a difficult
question to answer off hand much depending on the poet.
If he is of the average war or newspaper brand, it might
le conceded that the punishment fitted the crime, unless
something harder could bo devised. '
state, and as they have just finished paying the last m
stallment of the third Liberty loan, it will be a severe
drain on them. A million dollars for buildings, in these
days when most people talk in billions does not seem large,
but it counts just the same. No doubt the tax commission
will take all these things, and others, into consideration in
passing on the matter, and it can be depended on to cut
out all but the absolutely necessary buildings.
Prune growers of this section are finding a market
for their products, this year entirely different from that
they have heretofore relied on. The failure of the Idaho
prune crop, due to Spring frosts leaves the market shy
of the 1,000 carloads sent from that section on usual sea
sons. The result is that a demand is made on this section
to help supply the deficiency. The price makes it an in
ducement to try the new market, but it may interfere with
our Uncle Samuel's arrangements for the dried product.
Two days of the open season for deer and hunters
have passed, and no killings are reported among the lat
ter yet. It may be hunters are becoming more careful;
and those whose business requires them to frequent the
woods more cautious.
' .t The cloudy weather and light rains make one feel that
winter is close at hand, for ram is Oregon's sign of that
season. In addition the hum of the woodsaws all day long
give the feeling a still more intensified twang.
Congress is sure getting things down to a fine point.
It first passes a "work or fight" law and now comes to
the front with a tax on occupations. It makes a fellow
work and then taxes his occupation. That is what some
folks would call "a cinch."

I walked down town and cried, "Gee whiz !" an awful
uproar making; for I was full of rheumatiz, and all my
joints were aching. I groaned and swore at every step,
my aches would not desert me; I had no ease, I had no
pep, and every motion hurt me. Oh, I Tiad fed on purple
pills, I'd lived on drug and potion, and none of them re
lieved my ills, though swallowed by the ocean. At last I
reached the courthouse square, and wondered what was
doing; a lot of men were dancing there, and yipping and
hurrooing. "Have you not heard the news?" cried one. his
face with joy aquiver; "Our boys have whipped the beastly
nun ana cnasea mm m tne river." And then, though I am
old and fat, I joined the boys cavorting; I whooped around
and waved my hat, and kept the welkin snorting. When
I got home my good wife called. "Your rheumatism's
better? You walk like one who has installed a brand new
carburetter." 1 sach, "The Hun is getting his! The news
from Europe pleases; I haven't time for rheumatiz or any

When they arrived in Xew York dusk
was just falling. .They drove to a small
hotel, whcre Brian had made arrange
ments to remain until they could find
an apartment that pleased Euth, and
suited his pocket took. The hotol was
rather dingy, but at night it did not
look so bad, and he hoped fiuth would
noj teel too much out of place in it. He
knew that upou her visit to Xew 1'ork
with her aunt she had stayed at one of
the fashionable Fifth Avenue hotels; so
it was with an- apologetic manner that
he asked her if she thought she could
be comfortable for a few days until they
louiut an apaitnient.
"1 will have to be, I suppose," she
returned, not meaning to be ungracious,
nor lastuliouaiiess shocked, nevertheless.
"It will only be for a little while un
til we find something suitable' Brian
told her, "and you will be out all day
looking for a place, then for furni
ture." "It will be such fun!" Euth exclaim
ed. "I do so love to furnish. I had the
time of my life when I did over Aunt's
"I'm afraid there will quite a differ
ence in furnishing a four or five room
flat, and your aunt's lovely old house."
"I shall enjoy it, just tho same."
Nothing couldn't happen to dampen
Kuth's ardor where furnishing and de
corations were concerned.
Things did not look quite so rosy the
next morning. The dinginess of the ho
tel in tho bright sunlight ' that strug
gled thru the soiled windows, was more
apparent. Thc faded carpets of antique
pattern, the streaked draperies of no
particular color, the old fashioned up
holstered furniture, all were gloomy and
forbidding. But Ruth said nothing.
Brian had told her the night before he
had arranged to remain. She would not
make him unhappy by letting him sec
how the surroundings depressed her.
She made a little move and shrugged her
shoujders, as she thought she was glad
her aunt couldn't see it."
"She would be sure I had made a
mistake in marrying Brian," .she said
to herself. Brian had cone at onco to the'
office, first, however, giving her a liat

After her breakfast she started out.
