One of the hardest problems with which the commission had to deal was the fact that belligerent nations refusel to permit the purchase within their boundaries or foodstuffs for the Belgian sufferers. It was consequently necessary to obtain all the food overseas. It was found that if purchases w ere made in the primary cen ters and the most economical transport undertaken, it was necessary to have in transit at all times three months' fooo supply. The commission,, therefore, man aged to borrow $10,000,00) secured upon the goods in transit and the members of the commission pledged their personal credit for the further communes to bring up the stock of goods in transit as high some times as $20,000,000. In the early days the commission would have to send canal boats first to one part of Belgium and then to another, where supplies were with in less than 24 hours of exhaustion. rrohlem is bolved At first the commisalon endeavored to distribute the actual gift food consigned to them to the actually destitue persons. Within a week they found an enormous tunount of difficulty and contusion nr.s ing out of this arrangement because It would be necessary to divide a cargo of gift flour, for Instance, over 3000 com munes in Belgium, and t the same time to ship parallel with u .1 huge quantity of foodstuffs, consigning them for the purposes of sale for those who could pay. This meant a duplication of the entire transport organization and In fact was quite impossible because no gift cargo ,yas sufficient In size to distribute over 3000 communes; and the next thing the commission found was that It was bor rowing from the gift cargoes and was loaning food from the sales department to the benevolent department. The direct business minds of the managers untied this knot by a very simple device, by which they sold all of the gift food from the benevolent department to the pro visioning department. The benevolent de partment instead of having foodstuffs thus had cash in hand. This they pro ceeded to distribute by weekly subven tions to the communes, and the com munal authorities with this money pur chased their required Imports from the sales department. The result was an enor mous simplification In the work and an actual gain in efficiency, as the communes were then able to buy precisely what th<" icqnlred for each individual and local Institution. It Is of some interest to follow the actual < oursc of a cargo of foodstuffs throu»', the commission. Take the cas“ of Argen tine wheat. One of the largest firms of grain buyers in the Argentine undertook to make purchases on behalf of the c-om -nission without profit eo themselves. This grain would he purchased In one of the central Argentine provinces, transported to Buenos Aires, and a freight paid on It, less than the usual rates by virtue of arrangements by the commission with the railway companies at Buenos Aires. A cargo would be taken up by one of the regular steamers of the commission. Inasmuch as the commission had nego tiated an arrangement with all of the belligerent governments that ships flying the commission's flag would be immune from attack at sea. they were able to charter ships and ontain rates at lees than normal. This cargo. In due time ar rived at Rotterdam and was there dis charged Into lighters which are under time charter to the commission. These lighters are towed down the canals from Rotterdam Into Belgium and discharged tntn one of the five milling centers In ! Belgium. Operate Flour Mills "The flour mills In these live cities ar« onerated on behalf of the commission whereby the commission agrees to pav for the labor and actual cost of opera tion. The wheat Is milled Into SO pel cent flour and 30 per cent bran and th< hran la sold to the municipal dairies tc feed the cattle and thereby maintain th< [ cycle of milk supply for the bahv can teens. The flour is ngaln loaded Int : lighters and Is distributed into provincial warehouses of the commission. From these warehouses it is again distributed into arondlssement warchous-s.' The communal authorities come to the are.n dlsscment warehouses for theii supplies. The communes pay in cash to 'lie arron dissement managers the stipulated price of flour, and having removed it to the communal warehouse there begins one of the most interesting phenomena in the detailed measures taken to secure absolute economy and Justice in the method of distribution. In the case of flour, in the first Instance, the Joint or ganizations required the communes to secure from all of the bakers h com plete list of their customers. These lists were compared with the communal record and a definite number of persona, are assigned to each baker for him to supply with bread. The baker la put In bond to supply >25 grammes of good broad made from no other material than that at tha commission Un er*oi ••■•*••■•••••••■••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••«• to prevent adulteration) daily to each adult customer, and at a price fixed by the commission. For this purpose lie received daily from the communal ware house 250 grammes of flour per adult. Tile communes sell the flour to the baker at the same price which they pay for it. The baker is compelled to sell the bread to his customer for the same price that he pays for the flour; but, in asmuch as bread made from 250 grammes of flour increases to 325 . grammes of bread, by virtue of the water incorporated in baking, the baker thus obtains a small margin of profit with which to pay his workmen. Any contravention by the baker of the mi nute rule set down means the punish ment of having his list of customer* assigned to some competitor. !j The same system applies to the hand ling of other materials. On the benevo lent side, those who cannot afford to buy their bread from the baker or their groceries from the grocer, apply to the communal store. These tickets equal a certain ration per head in each family per diem. The communal store is stocked with foodstuffs partly imported and as stated above, partly purchased locally by the communes from the cash partially supplied to them by the com munes. In addition to the handling of the imported food supplies the commis sion now handles a considerable amount, of internal food produce, as it has been 3 necessarv to buy potatoes in some por- f tions of Relgium and send them to other parts aside from the very large quantity of potatoes now being imported. The commission recently purchased 500) tons of coffee from the stores com mandeered at Antwerp and has resold this throughout the country. Centennial of Trousers j From the Boston Globe. One hundred years ago Napoleon re turned from Elba, the battle of Water loo was fought—and trousers were intro duced into polite society in the capitals of western Europe. When powdered wig* disappeared, save from the craniums of lawyers in court, and the wearing of high hats became general (the historians oi fashion say), Jt quickly became obvious that some appropriate change must b* made at the other end of the male figure. Knee breeches and silk stockings did not correspond with the stovepipe. So the reformers set themselves to work to de vise other garments congruous with the ! new headpiece. The result was panta j loons as we know them. And the Duke | of Wellington had the courage to don the jk strange things in London before they ! were regarded there as strictly en regie. The centenary of trousers should be com memorated by American men in 1915 with such ceremonious observances as may be deemed most suitable.
