If the hakers do not advance the price of the single loaf, they must reduce its size, or di lute its quality. ' , -.ri For. the poor immigrant,, who of ten pays not over; $1 a Week for-food, bread is the main dependence. He may have his kettle of spup, 'brewed from bony, hunks of meat that no one else will "touch. - But this costs little and is merely an appetier. - His long rolled loaf, serving for several meals, is the main' backbone for his. muscu lar task.

' Mrs. -Julian Heath . of New' York, president of . the Housewives league, says, that in 'this exigency more fam ilies . should accustom themselves, to the use of corn bread, the price of which has not risen appreciably. Also much might be said of the value and healthfulness of rye. I is. a singular fact that a great many-well-to-do families always use corn and rye flour prominently,' pre ferring their flavor while many poor families continue to stick to white wheat aflour, even In times of scarcity, and in soite of the fact that much of Si'. on.onL nji QEHuuiE Lrd A voist ImStations' Rich Milk, malted grain, in powder form.
