potato epert of the administration The
Jersey farmer haa lud tho novel ex
perience this winter of having his pota
toes freeze In his cellars), Mr. Wilkinson
said. He Is now trlng to unload these
on tho public as fast as possible.
I On tho contrary, all Pennsanln
potatoes coming into tho local ni.uket
am of the best grade, he explained, and
are tho best and cheapest food the
housewife can buy. The matter cf put

Twenty-live cais wcro sold jesterdav,
and there wero forty-four cars on Hack

Chester J. Tyson and Morris rhlllips,
representatives of tho farmer on tho
administration, denied that tho farmer
was gettirig rich on present prices. They
said there was no truth In tho state
ment generally that deposits of the
farmers in the mini hanks had doubled
within tho last car. Mortgages are
not being lifted ficm tho farms, they
maintained That farmers In sopic sec
lions of the louutry favoicd by special
circumstunccH havo mado inune.v, they
admitted, but said that the condition
was not at all general.
Tho process by which the revised prico
of 65 cents per half bushel for potatoes
was Used was explained today by olfl
dais of the food adniiiiistiatlon,
It was found that potatoes wcro sell
ing to tho email dealer at DO cents a
bushel at the car und that the cost of
delivery to tho btoro was about 8 cents,
making a total of 98 cents per bushel.
Adding 10 rents a bushel for bagging
and other containers and allowing a
margin of 20 per cent profit the price
per bushel to tho customer, it was do
elded, should bo JJ1.30, or C3 cents per
bait bushel.
Complaints of profiteering In potatoes
have been received at the offices of tho
food administration and thebe com

THERE are eleven Galleries
in the Hampton Shops, each
one devoted to the display of Fur
niture, but, as you wander through
them, it is not the mere Furniture
itself that attracts your attention.
Rather will you be pleasantly
impressed with the constant evi
dence that greets you of decorative
skill and ability. An odd Table
and Chair, for instance, are all that
are needed to compose the main
lines of an unforgettable picture.
The attendant details, the inlaid
Caskets, the brazen Candlesticks,
the Vases and Plaques, the sense
of color and knowledge of history
ical styles shown in the surround
ings suggest why the Hampton
Shops has won its reputation.
