The average has increased steadily
The Department of Commerce hns
recently mndcntt exhaustive inquiry
into the money spent for food by
families of small or moderate means
in this country, the investigation
being confined to the households
of wngc-workcrs nnd salaried men
earning not over $t, 200 n year.
As n result, it was ascertained
that the average income of such
families was $827, and that the av
erage expenditure for all purposes
was $768. The amount spent for
food was $327, or about forty-two
per cent. The average cost of food
per family in 1896 was only $296.
In 1905 it was $344.
Every householder knows how
the cost of food has gone up during
the Inst few years, but it is interest
ing to have definite figures on the
subject. It seems Hint this import
ant item of family expenditure
reaches ils highest in 1902; when
it was eleven per cent above the
average for the ten years from 1890
to 1899 inclusive. The year of the
lowest prices was 1896, when lood
cost sixteen per cent less than in
1902. These data were obtained
by taking the prices of 814 retail
merchants for a period covering the
last thirteen years.
It wos found that the average
family devoted fourteen per cent of
its expenditure to clothing, a little
over five per cent to fuel and lights,
and three and a-half per cent for
furniture and utensils. l;or tobac
co one and four-tenths per cent
The increased cost of food is off
set to a considerable extent by bet
ter wages. In years of low prices,
wages are low and employment ir
regular, whereas in years of high
prices wages are high and employ
When n Man Starves.
For the first two days through
which a strong and healthy man is
doomed to exist upon nothing his
sufferings arc perhaps more acute
than in the remaining stages; he
feels an inordinate, unspeakable
craving at the stomach night and
day. The mind runs upon beef,
bread and other substances, but
still, in a great measure, the body
retains ils strength. On the third
and fourth days, but especially on
the fourth, this incessant crnving
gives place to a sinking and weak
ness of the stomach, accompanied
On the fifth day his cheeks ap
pear hollow and sunken, his body
attenuated, his color is ashy pale
and his eyes wild, glassy and can

creased suffering, although the
pangs of hunger are lost in an over
powering languor and sickness.
The head becomes dizzy, the ghosts
of well-remembered dinners pass in

courage Hilo growers, it will fine it
unprofitable to keep up the flood
"Organization is imperative,
h'rttit growers nt the coast have
been compelled to organize. The
longer we delay here the worse for
us. Organization is sure to bring
better prices; better prices means
larger production and larger pro
duction means better steamer ser
vice. "We ship 7,000 bunches a month.
At a tax of five cents a bunch, a
fund of $350 per month would be
raised. This would pay the salary
of a good man at each end, and to
get a capable, trustworthy man
with business ability ought not to
be a difficult matter.
"With the shipment of 7,000
bunches per month means $3,150
per month to encourage steamer
service and $700 per month to the
Hilo Railroad and draymen. With
organization and proper handling,
it would mean $3,000 per month,
or $36,000 per year for growers,
which will be spent among laborers,
nrtizens and merchants nnd upbuild
the entire community. But Hilo
ought to ship 40,000 bunches a
month, which would insure two
steamers a month, $4,000 for rail
road and teamsters and probably
$16,000 per mouth for growers and
laborers. An earnest effort should
be made to acquaint people of all
occupations (and especially those of
110 occupation,) of the immense
benefits and advantages that may
be expected from the proper develop
ment of the banana and other fruit
industries in the Islands. All this
can be accomplished if the banana
and fruit growers w.il unite in an
organized effort to improve condi
tions and encourage the industry."
A Safe Speculation.
If you have an attack of rheuma
tism and Chamberlain's Pain Balm
