an old proverb. This would seem

New York, Feb. 24.—George W. Per
kins, head of the mayor's eommitte» on
foods and markets, lias taken drastic
action to relieve the serious food situa
tion In New York city.
While the board of estimate was en
gaged In discussing ways anil means
of alleviating the intense suffering.
Mr. Perkins went out and bought up
4,000,000 pounds of rice.
He then called up Taeoma, Wash.,
on the long distance telephone, bought
a carload of fish and ordered It dis
patched to New York Immediately. It
will arrive next Wednesday.
Immediately after purchasing the
rice he obtained permission from the
board of education to petition every
householder In the city through the
school children to purchase rice. In It
he will advise housewives to buy rice
at S cents a pound and not to pay more
than β cents. Should the increased de
mand send up the price of rice he will
control the market with his holdings In
order to force It down again.
Having completed these tasks, In
which he was assisted by the other
members of the committee, Mr. Per
kins sat down and wrote a report to
the mayor. In tt he said:
"Other articles of food and the sup

Fire Commissioner Adamson, and

that one of our boats became use

quest comes up before the board you
will see your way clear to get it

fighting apparatus, will be made avail
able on call from this department in
case of a Are anywhere on the water

or In the Kill von Kull, the tugboats
of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad
