Glve Up Potatoes For Other Foods.
Potatoes are not now the "poor
man's food," says R. W. Thatcher,
chief of the division of agricultural
biochemistry, University Farm. Po
tatoes contain, on the average, 78 per
cent of water and
actual food material. .--d
tatoes, therefore, contains only a little IJne"auspiceg
over 13 pounds of actual food sub-lL.
stance. At the present retail price of
potatoes, $3.20 a buehel, each pound i
of food which they contain costs over'
24 cents. A pound of rice which con- 5e
tains 88 per cent of food and 12 per i
cent of water costs 8% cents, so that!
one pound of food almost exactly like
that in potatoes can be bought as rice I
for a little less than 10 cents. A ten-'
cent loaf of bread contains about 12,L
ounces of food and 6 ounces of water*
hence a pound of food as bread which'
is a much better balanced food than'
either rice or potatoes, can be bought
for 12% cents Wheat flour furnishes I
times as costly as wheat flour, twice
as expensive as baker's bread, andlG'
two and a half times as expensive as' 'M
rice, the food which most closely
stop eating potatoes altogether until'D
the price falls to less than half what
it is at present.

by all who knew him. He was frugal
