Bakors Raising tho Prico and
Cutting: Down tho Weight
What About tho Law That a Loaf Shall
Weigh Sixteen Ounces ?
The sudden flurry in wheat throatens to
have tho effect of aomllug tho prico of bread
highor than it lias been for many years.
Flour has bocomo $1.25 to 91.7S liigbor per

tho bakors. Many of tho smaller bakeries
situated on tho cost mid west sides havo al
ready commonccd to mako their loaves of
brcud much smaller than heretofore. This
step, they claim, has becomo necessary in
order to meet tho riso in tho prico of flour.
llakcrs who buy a large nmouut of flour nt
a time havo not 113 yet begun to meet tho in.
creaso iu prices, Many of theso buy their
flour in monthly instalments and havo a largo
stock on hand at present. Thus thoy arc not
A number of tho largo bakers havo, how
ever, bought nt tbo increased prico and aro
still soiling at tho old rates. All along the
liuu thero is n feeling of fear lost they should
raiso their prices nud follow tho cxamplo of
the smaller shops.
If thoy did so thoir customers would leavo
them. So for the present they will sell at
the old prices, although thoy claim that as
they stood provious to tho raiso in.prico thoy
made hut a small nrollt, nud now thoy will
bo compollrd to dlsuoso of thoir brcadstuffs
at a loss in many instance.
The poor man will bo about tho only one
who will havo to suffer, and thoso having
largo faraillos will soon find out that whoro
two loaves of bread at uino cents a pioco
lasted a day throe will now bo repaired.
Thero is a law passed iu 1800 which ro
oniros that a loaf of bread shall weigh at
least sixteen ounces. This law is still on tho
statute books. A penalty of $10 for a viola
tion and a seizure of the bread weighing
lighter than tho prescribed number of ouueos
is provided for. This law is opeuly violated
ovvry day by many bakers, whilo othors give
more than the required weight.
Au effort is already being mado to havo tho
tinkers adopt a uniform price, and a meetiug
of tho Master linkers' Association has been
called for Oct. 20, at which the question will
bo disciused uiul ways and means adopted to
carry out the project. Should tno flurry in
who.it continue according to the statements
of many promiuout bakers, tho loaves will bo
reduced from 0110 to one aud a half ounces.
An Evenino World roportcr talked with a
number of boss bakors ou tho subject of an
inureaso in their prices this morning. Tho
first iilaco he called was at tho National link

hovcral hundred barrels of flour woro being
put into the collar when ho called. In answer
to his imery us to whethor or not tho com
pany had raised its prico, tho manager said :
" No, we havo not 1 that is, not yot. Wo
have been working ou flour bought boforo
tbo corner was started, and then wo had only
a very small margin. Tho flour you soo on
tho street wo have just bought I havo not
yot got tbo bill, and thereforo cannot toll
anything about tbo cost. I supposo it is
about $ 1. CO per barrol moro than wo usually
nay. lint if iho prices keep up wo will either
have to redtico the sizo of our loaves or raiso
the price. I think thoro should bo some law
to cover the ' cornoror In this caso. "
In the samo Street several smaller hnfcnra
have already sooenmbod to tho raiso, mid
either iucroasod (heir prico or reduced tho
size of tboir loaves.

A number of bakors woro unwilling to talk

Thus it will be seen that not ouly docs the

yourself iu it. because a great many people
who see " Tho Kaffir Diamond " must
naturally wake up ono flno morning and usk
thomsclvcs why Louis Aldrich is considered
It 1b tho question that naturally arises. If
I had n papa and mamma who had drilled mo
into adoring you I should go to them, after
having seen " Tho Kaffir Diamond, " and,
flinging filial respect to the wind, exclaim :
" My parents, you havo deceived me. Yoti
havo trilled with my obedient mind. You
told mo Louis Aldrich was great. I don't
beliovo tbat ho over could havo been. His
Shoulders is dead against him 1"
Wero you over renllv great. Mr. Aldrich?
I kuow it is cruel to ask you such n question.
I do not expect an answer, howovor. I can
supply it myself. You made nn enduring
success as the Parson m"Tho Dnnitcs"
voars ago. It raised you into prominence
The part, howovor, was a strong and singu
larly nappy one. Biuco your time McKco
Ilankiu bus assigned it to many actors, and
in nearly ovory case thoy havo made undeni
nblo hits. The part lent itself to modiocrity;
in fact, it was a groat part. It made you, my
Hartley Campbell saw tbo work for which
you wero fitted, and ho wroto " My Partner."

Tbo play was written around tho part. Tho
part was built to incloso Louis Aldrich. You

clings to ono suit of clothes, that by somo
freak of sartorial inspiration has mado a hit.
Tho clothes wear out. So does tbo play.
Nothing but wino can gracefully and sue
ccssfuly smile at Timo's uovilry. Tho dude
must go stark or get another suit. Tho actor
must look for another play or sink into in
activity and appeal to tho Fund. Ah ! this is
a cruel world. Tho cry is " movo on " all tho
timo, and if you don't go in tho right direc
tion you aro kicked, no matter what your
provious movements havo been.
And so you buried "My Partner" de
cently, aud turned your attention to the liv.

it accomplished little. Thon, with a noiso of

To tht Editor opTXo Enntma IFurM;
In my opinion au unhappy marriage is I
brought about by tho lack of foresight with 8
both, and utter elimination of regard for the '
future in tho sweet throes of lovo. A man
may havo tho nbility to look ahead und at tho 1
Batno time lovo dearly, but many don't. t
An unpulsiva marriage is accompanied by
n very great risk, as impulse is generally fol- l
low ed by a reconsideration which leads to dlf- 'M
ferent views, and, iu this caso consequential M
discoutcnt. For this reason very young - H
marriages aro objectionable, simply because 1
young people aro opt to havo tho abovo weak- J
ness. But whero a young fellow has no I
homo, is making good wagos, has good health I
and circumstauceB all around seem to justify, I
why I think ho is hotter off married. B
A young man should not strive to moke his J
wlf 0 a girl who has always beon used to hav- y" I
ing moro than ho can givo her. It is his duty J
to elevate her certainly not to bring her s
lowor. Thon again, there aro somo poor girls '
who look at marriago as a sign of luxury and
extravagance, whilo somo girls who havo
nlways had what they dosircd ore willing to
sacrifice luxury for tho sake of tho young
man. This also plays as a big factor in mar
Tho great question is to meet the right one.
Sho cannot bo Bought, but when Bho does ' :
loom up the young man is making a great
mistake in lotting her go. Should he never
meet hor ho is justinod in staying single.
Here's n Looming I'oaalblltty.
To Iho Editor of Tho Ettninq World:
Why do you not adopt somo mothod by ;

perhaps, to somo happy marriages.
I know of a gentleman who, if he knew
whoro to reach her, would be pleased to "
make tho acquaintance of a plain, sonsiblo

I think tbo reason that most marriages area
