ENGLAND'S FOOD SUPPLY
The London Miller, writing of
Great Britain's foou supplies, says
"these supplies are a matter of life
and death to us, for, failing these,
prices would at once rise to a point
at "which the poorer classes could not
purchase them, and, except immedi
ately ter harvest, there are usually
only a few week's supply of grain in
the United Kingdom, and this would
be " considerably depleted before
measures could be taken to control

its distribution under military or other
supervision. The devising of a means
to insure that there shall at ail times,
be a large reserve of grain in the
country does not seem an impossibil
ity. A three months' supply is the
least that should be held, independ
ently of what may be in the mills and
bakerfcs of the country, and if the
Government would .provide free stor
age and a small bonus to merchants
who kept a certain floating balance
always in the granaries, in much the
same way as some banks allow inter
est on current accounts when no
drawn below a certain sum, the sys-j
tern might be made to work auto-l
matically and to give the authorities'
the right to purchase the wheat inj
store, or, at least, control tne supply
in certain eventualities."
