Williams, Agt FOOD PRICES DECLINING, UBDB OFFICE REPORTS The Peak Of High Cost Of Liv ing Was Reached No vcrabcr 15, 1913. Washington, March 7. Food prices in the 1'nlted States reached the highest level In twenty-four years on November 15, 1913. Since that date there had been a slight de cllnu In prices, though the average still Is well above that of a year ago. The Department of Labor to-day made public a report showing the retail prices of the principal ar ticles of food as observed by the (lovernniont agents In forty of the most Important Industrial cities of tho country. "Throughout the whole of 1913 high prices prevailed," said the re port, "while the last quarter of the year was a period of decline In the prices of twelve of the fifteen arti cles of food observed." It further points out that the decline, 'was more than counter-balanced by an advance In the nrlce of eggs to a level never before reached." For three of the articles eggs, corn meal and milk the highest price was reached in November. For the remaining twelve articles su gar, butter hens, flnur, "Irloln "teak, round steak, rib roast, bacon, ham, and lard, pork chops and potatoes prices wore below the maximum quoted earlier In the year. "When the price of each of the fif teen articles is Weighed according to average consumption In working- men's ramiiies," tne statement shows, "retail prices were at a high er level on November 15, 1913, than at any time during the twenty-four j ears preceding, when they reached a maximum of 72. S per cent, above tho average for 1S90 to 1S99, 9 per cent, above the price on December 15, 1912, nn.l 14.5 per cent, above the price on December 15, 1911." A further comparison of retail price on December 15, 1913, with prices on the same date in 1912 shows that twelve of the tifteen ar ticles for which quotations are giv en were higher and three were low er in price. Potatoes had advanced 43.7 per cent, sitting on the girl's lap to avoid Boiling his Immaculate white trous ers. According to tho policeman, they told him tlint If ho was tired, ho might sit on the other girl's lap. When he attempted to accept tho In vitation, ho was repulsed, nnd, It Is charged, treated the girl . roughly, henco his prosecution for assault and battery. Tho Jury found him guilty, but rcconflnentlcd him to the mercy of tho court. ooooooooooooooo O l-WTIIKH. DKAH KATIIKIt. O OOOOOOOOOOOOOOO 00000000000000 o o O POKMS YOUM.fi KX.TOY. O O .
