t that price.
'According! to Mrs. Louis U. Welz
miller, Deputy Commlsaloner of Mar
kets, the poor potato crop lust year,
coupled with railroad freight embar
goes caused by weather condtlons,
Is tho probable reason for tho situation.
She recommends rice, macaroni and
spaghetti as potato substitutes while

JSxcept potatoes, most food prices fell

WAlt ONE OF FACT0BS
His Honeymoon Car Stolen and
llccovered At Last Ho
' Has Bride.
Jersey City's personally conducted
March rent strike began yesterday with
about 800 occupants ot apartment houses
refusing to pay Increases In the monthly
rato demanded by their landlords. This
Is being done, as told In Tk.3 Sun and
Now York Herald Sunday, upon the ad
vice of the city government, which now
has the rent gougcr up a tree and pur
poses to stand under htm with a club
until ho comes down and surrenders.
James JA Gannon, Jr., Dlrrclor of Hev
enuo and Finance, Instructed all rent
rayers upon whom eyecsaivo demands
were made, effective March 1, to bring
their I'omDlalnts to him and meanwhile
to (WltW'liiercly the amount nf
Kebruary rental. He further told them
that If the landlord attempted dispossess
proceedings the city would foot the rtu
fendaut'ti hill. Gannon and clerks of tho
llnance and law departments havo in
vestigated thus far 300 of the 800 com
"In 90 per cent, of the cases Investi
gated," Gannon said yestwl'.iy, "tho
landlord Is unquestionably prolltcerlng.
On top of several other advances within
tho last year and n half additional de
mands ranging from $3 to (15 a mouth
appear In tho notices for March. Tho
landlords have not been put to any such
extra expense as to justify this. Taxes
In Jersey City arc actually lower than
they were last year. ,
"It Is customary for the landlord or
his ngont to cali for the rent money on
the first day ot the month. It Is inter
esting to noto that nt many houses
where tho tenants are on strike this
call was not 'mado to-day. The land
lords knew that only tho amount of last
month's rent would bo offered to them,
and evidently they want to get legal 4d
vlco before accepting It."
Tho world reasonably Is filled with
men who have had no' difficulty In enter
ing tho marital condition. And la even
more filled, according to some author.
Itles, with those who, having entered It,
havo marvelled at a certain headstrong
quality In themselves for many years
