SUGAR THE CHEAPEST COMMODITY.
-fV UGAR is about the cheapest" of the leading articles of food
w in this country. It is the only one whose average price has de
clined since the cost of living" began to go up. Under the
Republican "robber Tariff" we had nearly as cheap sugar as Free
Trade England, whose markets are largely supplied by the low-paid
labor of the tropics, in the East and West Indies and Brazil.
The situation is different in other countries of Europe. The average
retail price of our "granulated" sugar, for which we have been paying
for some years past around 5 cents a pound sometimes a fraction more
and sometimes a fraction less in Germany is 6 to 8 cents a pound, in
France around 10 cents, in Spain and Italy is higher still. Such sugar
as we have is almost or quite a "luxury" there. So it is in the Orient
and South America. The sugar that is "cheap" in India, for instance
about 3 cents a pound is dirty, brown stuff that the American
housewife would not have at any price. We have obtained the best
sugar at really low prices, and the sugar has ceased to be a "luxury,'
because under Protection, American enterprise and capital has devel
oped a vast new industry, that of beet sugar making, and thus was in
creasing near-at-hand supplies. The National f armer.
Correct and Deep Breathing It Essen
tial to Good Health.
No I'll'''!1 of advice the physician can
Ivc will bear more frequent repetition
tlinn the pilliy sentence, "Breathe
lecply." It is a perfectly simple rule
f health, yet it is constantly broken.
There nre two ways to learn to
reathe. If our powers of self disci
pline nre poor, as is the case with most
insullicient breathers. It Is a (rood plan
to join a gymnasium or caiisllicnic clnss
and learn to iso the lungs as a baby
learns to use lis feet and hands. Itut
remember that lessons in breathing
will do no good if the scholar thinks he
s absolved from his task except when
le Is in the class.
A simpler method for those who
have not time or opportunity to at
tend n gymnasium is to turn life's daily
routine into a continuous discipline in
breathing. If the poor broathoi takes
the trouble to watch himself cuefully
he will find that when lie is cn.raged
upon any work that calls for close at
tentlon lie does not even breathe as
deeply as usual; lie almost invariably
holds Ids breath. Thus the blood cur
rent is vitiated when It ought to be
cleansed, and the worker exhausts
himself, not so much by bis labors a
by his neglect.
Draw in deep drafts of ntr every
time you take a breath, and every lit
tle while stop everything else anil till
your lungs a few times with breaths
that test their capacity. You will bi
surprised to see the improvement that
It will make in your general condition.
UROPEAN countries call the new American Tariff law a Great
Big Snap" for Europe and European?, of course. And that is
what it is, but for this country 'nit." The factories and mills
are reducing their business downward, just as the powers that be re
duced the Tariff schedules downward; reducing the number of employes
and wage earners downward, also, for the reason that Europe is flood
ing the country with goods made by pauper laborers forcing condi
tions that American mills and factories cannot meet and pay the Anier
ican wage, and therefore they are compelled to close or go into bank
ruptcy. The list is already appalling and is growing day by day. In
their 1912 campaign the Woodrow Wilson party spellbinders promised
the consumers "lower prices," promises that have not been fulfilled
and the importers will see that prices are not lowered. When Europe
profits it is in the reduction of duties, but the cargo buyers reap the
benefit and have the consumers at their mercy. They own neither
factory nor mill, they do not give employment to workingmen. They
are simply the highwaymen of the ocean commerce at this end of the
line. They are the American wreckers of American industries.

PRUNING BY RAIN.
of Nature's Many Methods of
Thinning Her Forests.
Nature has many ways of thinnina
and pruning and trimming her forests
lightning strokes, heavy snows and
storin winds to shatter and blow down
whole trees here and there or break off
brandies as required. The results of
these methods 1 have observed in dif
ferent forests, but only once have 1
seen pruning by rain.
The rain froze on the trees as It tell
and grew so thick nnd Heavy tnai

their branches. The view of the
woods after the storm had passed and

The belt road should be completed right through to Hana. Every
body believes that that scheme should be carried out. But it will take
a lot of money to finish the job- money that could, perhaps, be spent
to better advantage to the community as a whole. The present section
of the road will never be of much use, however, until the whole project
is carried through to it's natural terminus.
Red as a Cure.
In Enclnnd. says the London Globe,
apothecaries for many years were firm
believers In the i-mcncy or me coiui
red as a combatant of disease, la-
tlents. especially those suffering from
rheumatism, were fre(iuentiy wrapped
In red blankets nnd dressed in red
clothes. "Let your nightcap be of

physician in the sixteenth century ad
vised that the face be washed once a
week nnd then wiped with a red cloth.
Upon this lntter item of the prescrip
tion great stress wns laid no doubt
the color of the cloth was intended to
net ns an antidote against the chill of
such frequent ablutions.
It is to be hoped that there will be many more "Get Together"

forgotten sometimes by those who put too much stress on the value of

Grease a Cause of Disease.
Grease iu a sink is a very prolific
cause of disease. It cannot but accu
mulate from dishes and utensils, and
when small bits of vegetable matter
adhere to It a shelter Is given to mis
chievous bacteria. Besides, grease
will clog the drain nnd become a men
ace and an inconvenience. The surest
and simplest cleansing agent is a
strong solution of washing soda and
boiling water. The sink should first
be scrubbed with soapsuds nnd the
hot solution then dashed down the
drain. This cleaning should be done
at least once a week. Chicago News.
