'' Ed Schunke, alderman elect frow the
fifth ward, is homo from an extended
tour of California. In conversation
with the leadinf wholesale grocery
men in Ban Francisco he learned that
the unsettled condition of the coffee
market was due mostly to the fact that
the wholesale coffee dealers wore not
permitted by the federal Toed com
mission to carry more thiui e 90-duy
stock. That the government of Branil
had loaned its financial support to
coffee growers and that as merchants
of the United States could buy only
in small quantities, the price was
gradually pushed up on green coffee,
'ihe result will be more noticeable as
housekeepers will soon pay quite a
decided advance for coffee. It is
thought that within the next three or
four mouths the price will be about
double that quoted in November.

According to the family almanac, to
morrow should be the shortest day of
the year. If the sun follows the dH
rectiou of the said almanac, it should
rise at 7:25 a. m. and set at 4:30 p. m.
The same almanac in prognosticating
about the weather sets forth that from!
the 21st to tho 26th of this month there
will bo increasing cloudiness except in!
the extreme northwestern states. The
southern states are supposed to have
soft and pleasant weather for Christ
mas. In order that the voting public who
are entitled to cast votes on school elec
tions may understand more fully tho
issues involved in tho school election
of December 30, 1918, a committee of
ten was appointed last evening at tho
commercial club as a publicity commit
tee. Tho meeting included a uumuer
of prominent men of the city who are
in favor of maintaing tho schools at
their present standard and who stand
back of the present school board in the
budgot and then present to the. public,
probably in a series of newspaper arti
cles. In charge of this publicity work
is the following committee: Milton L.
Meyers, chairman; Joseph II. Albort,
Theodore Roth, Fred Thiclsen, Melvin
Plimpton, W. T. Jeuks, Dr. H. II. Olin
ger, Ben F. West and William Trindlc.
One final effort will be made to se

Bod Cross membership button will be
solicited. From the number who are
to assist and the number of high school
girls who will be found on the streets
working, anyone without a Red Cross
membership button will be -the subject
of considerable attention. It is prob
able that women will visit offices in
thoir efforts to secure a largor membership.
