The wide range in prices quoted on some products is explained by a corresponding range in the quality and condition. This applies par ticularly to those products which come from a long distance. The transportation companies are nearly submerged with the heavy move ment of freight and delays frequently occur. As a result of these conditions, and owing* to the highly perishable nature of some of the products, fhey often arrive in an over-ripe condition Thla necessitates their being* sold quickly, regardless of coat. The consumer should bear these facts in mind. Well graded, fancy product? command top prices, while genuine bargains ran be secured by the uae of the ripe products which are especially desirable for canning and preserving purposes. RIPE PEARS FOR CANNING AND PRESERVING. A case in hand ia represented by the pear altuation. ??? peara from the West were aold by wholesalers this morning: from 50 cents to $3.50 per bushel box. according to condition and ripeness. The va rieties were the llartlett and the'Howell and the most common sties, those having from 150 to 180 pears to the box. -The boxes cost the growers in the Weat from 15 to 20 cents each and?the freight amount? to somewhat over $1 per box, jo that in many rases these pears are selling at a big loss to the grower. This very fact, however, gives the consumer an excellent chance to purchase some of thla ripe fruit at very low figures for canning and preserving purposes. Ask your dealer to get a box for you or visit the wholesale market In the morning and buy It direct. The fair prices to consumers given below cover those charged by both "cash-and-carry" and "credi t-and-deli very" retailer?. "Cash and-carry" retailers should sell near the lowest figure given. Unless otherwise stated, all prices are for produce of good average quality Poo'rer grades should sell for less. If consumers are charged, on any day. prices In excess of those published on lhat day in th?** "fair-price-to-consumers" column, they should immediately bring the matter to the attention of the District of Columbia food administration.

"Forget the censor?he or ?he I? probably bored to death with ?imilar tales," I advised myself. And that, i am eure, ought to make pretty good advice for others wive? when they write to their men with the A. E. F. "Dear and Dearest: You ?aid the last time you came home on furlough. 'Thank God there isn't a child! Life will be easier for you so. Jane, if I do not come back.' "But, my darling, there IS a child!

Perhaps It was my precious seeie'_ . which gava me coinage to go upstairs I th;? morning to the nursery whet? Uenjie's baby lives. It's a very plain | suite, marvelous germ-proof, charge of two very stiims -aurne? who always wear sterilized cowi.s. My p_or little country-bred .?eff haa stood very much in awe of them. But tf I'm to be a mother, I thought, where can I set better les.-oiu 4n baby culture than from Baby Bar bara's foster mothers? Dear Mother Ixtrimer was looking on at "Bwawa's" bath. " Bwawa ' the best Baby Barbara can do with ' her own name. There never could be enythlnj more perfectly shaped in human ???; h than "Bwawa." I know the child is illegiti mate, but I couldn't help wondering how it could be very wrong to add such an exquisite blossom to the iree of life. Of course there ought not to be any Baby Barbara. Her fat her never bought a marriage license end her mother never wore a wedding ring. And yet, here km I, a perfectly gof>d girl by inheritance and upbringing, wondering why it is right that my own baby should be a glory to its patents just because we are wedded, while this lovely bit ol innocence, my brother-in-law'e child, would dlagrace the whole Lorimer family, if people only knew the truth about her. "Which Is to blame " I asked my self, "tb* man, or the girl, or so ciety?" Nature herself, as I see things to day, must be tho eliminai. I wanted to ask Mother Lorimer what she thinks for as her sons say, she is "fed up" with modern thought about pretty nearly everything. But of course I couldn't question her be fore the nuree. who ro far. seems to | accept the story about Benjie's mar riage In Canada. I can't help thinking about such things for. although we haven't had much talk about war babies in this country, we've heard oodles of it from abroad. An<j I can't see how ; the case of the poorest lltfie un fathered war waif over there is much different from that of little Barbara I-orimer. And yet. when I think of those pitiful women atoms who have French mothers and Hun beasts for fathers, my heait stops beating. Baby Barbara, being now frocked in the plainest of sanitary dresses, I was permitted to snatch up and bestow a kiss on the top of her curly red head. The touch of her warm, sweet body revealed in a flaah t?e reason why the strict marriage conventions are right. Marriage protects the child. No expensive nursery nor highly paid caretakers can ever be a substitute for real parents. And by Just as much as I love my own child, I felt that 4 ?coined the mother of Barbara. Who is this women who disowns her child to save her good name? Some day I am go ing to find out. Meanwhile, I feel that I would like to mother wee Barbara myself. ] also feel that I ought to do this as an honest bit of war work for thus ? coald release one of the nurses for hospital service. (To be continued.) <C'.T3Hgfct, 1W] When the Domestic Girl Loses Out. By DOROTHY DIX THE WORLD'S HIGHEST PAID WOMAN WRITER. A young woman haa propounded toi me the riddle of the Sphynx. Sha want? to know why the sensible girl, who Is fitted to make a good wife/ so seldom ha? the chance to be one, while a silly little goose of a girl, who will be the ruination of the man she mar ries, van commit bigamy a? often a? she like?. "Why do men pass over the domestic giil for the fluffy-ruflles one?" ?he asks. "Men want wives who will be good housekeeper?, who are prac tical and thrifty, and will know how to save their money. Why dont they flock around girl? who will make that kind of helpmeets, instead of the baby dolla, who don't know how to do any thing but fl-end money and dress themselves up? They don't, you know. We sensible, practical, dome?? tic girl? seldom have a beuu. or gut t chance to man y, unless we are the second choice of some middle-aged widower. "Why Isn't It as alluiing to a man for a girl to km-* how to perform on the cook stove as it is for hor to per form on the piano7 Why isn't he just as much thrilled in holding a hand that has a few needle pricks on the flnsers as he Is In holding one that some other woman ha? been paid to manicure?* Why. indeed! I wish that I could answer my correspondent's question.' and tell her why a man is attracted to a ?tri by the tei y qualities that he deprecate? In hi? wife, and why he marrie? a girl for one thing and blame? her ever afterwards for being it. but I cannot explain this peculiar-: it y of the masculine psychology. No body can. Least of all does the man j himself know why he picked out a ? hand-painted psrlor ornament, when I what he wanted was a useful kitchen! appliance. He simply doe?>, and fon the rest of his life wonders why. Of course the kind of a woman j that a man falls in love with Is a matter of personal last??, nnd there is no arguing about tastes. Still, one can suggest several reasons why the homespun girl is not a? alluring to the masculine fancy m^ the pink chiffon girl. On?1 of these reason? 1.? that the! practical, common sfnsp kind of j pirl, generally overdoes the prac- j tlcal and common senee stuff. She ticks romance and sentiment, and after all these are the veil ln which a woman must clothe herself before a man sees her as ih*1 lady love of his dreams. Instead of just one more female inhabitant of the world. The very practicality whlcft makes a woman a n-iracon of a wife is her undoing as a lady love, because it keeps her from pract ic ing the little wiles with which the expert feminine fisner or men baits her hook for the catch. The prac tical women cannot goo and coo and gurgle over a man, because she would feel like a fool if she did it. yet men like to be literally and metaphorically chucked under the chin and fussed over, as if they were babies. Neither can the prac tical woman talk to a man on any bat sensible subjects, and how can a discussion of the steel dividend, or "the best way to Hooveri-te" lead up to popping the question? Love making can only flourish In a congenial atmosphere, and the practical woman does not know hofv to produce it. Neither ha* any ! man got the requisite nerve to up ! and ask a woman to marry him In ! cold blood. He has to be gently and Insiduously worked up to the proper temperature, and the com mon sense woman hasn't that kind ' ? of sense In her repertoire. Nor does the practical woman know ! how to Jolly a man along Instead of telling him that he is the won- ? I der of the ages, she candidly calls ? | his attention to his faults or short- ; I comings, and points out his mis I takes to him, than which no woman I can make a more fatal move if she I desires to be admired of man. Another reason that the practical. I common sense girl does not attract men is because she stands too stur dily on her own two little feet, and when a woman shows that she can | stand alone, the masculine tendency Is to let her do it. Helplessness In a woman is the one quality that appeals most to a man. That Is why the floppy dishrag woman can marry early, and as often as necessity de mands. A mnn always pictures himself as ! a knight rescuing a distre-f^ed dam i sel. It appeals to his chivalry to 1 feel that he is protecting and sup porting a clinging little thing. It tickles his vanity and makes him J feel about seven feet high, and as ; wise as Solomon for a girl to a.Kk him what he thinks about everything. an?l to defer to his judgment; and that is why the less sense a woman has the better she can marry, and the tesa useful she is to her hus band, the more he does for her. And j . It ia also where the practical, common j sense girl loses out. But pei haps tho real reason why , men are more attracted to the silly. | frivolous butterfly girl, who spends j her time in adorning herself.
