Americans Save 775,000 Tons of
Sugar During July, August,
September, October and
The sugar division of the U. S.
Food Administration for Wisconsin
were praised in a letter written by
Charles Hatfield of the United States
Food Administration to Magnus Swen
son, Pood Administrator for Wiscon
sin, for their efficient service in ad
ministering the sugar orders. The
total savings in Wisconsin are not yet
known, but the total amount con
served by the American people during
July, August, September, October, and
November is 775,000 tons. This in
cludes the sugar conserved by the re
strictions placed on confectionery and
soft drink products.
The object of the Food Administra
tion in. asking for economy during
those months was to ensure a supply
of sugar that would be adequate to
meet the needs of the Allies who
would have to depend on the same
sources as the United States as long
as the war lasted. It was necessary
to take precautions to have a cer
tainty of sufficient sugar throughout
the year.
With the signing of the armistice,
the situation was immediately
changed, and the Food Administration
removed the restrictions as soon
afterwards as possible. The Cuban
crop, the large surplus of western
beet sugar and Louisiana cane make
It possible for us to return to our
normal use of sugar.
American Invented Electric Fan.
Michael Faraday devised the elec
tro-magnetic rotation apparatus in the
year 1822. Barlow in 1823 produced
the rotation of a star wheel placed in
the field ot a strong magnet.
These devices were very crude and
simple, however, and developed in
finitesimal power. Undoubtedly the
first electric motor employing mag
nets wound with many turns of wire,
and also comprising a motor which util
ized both permanent steel magnets and
electro-magnets, was that perfected by
Prof. Joseph Henry of Princeton uni
versity, in the year 1831. Henry pro
duced reciprocating motion as well as
the rotary motion by electro-magnetic
Henry’s motor, according to Elec
trical Experimenter, was the fore

Philippines Grow Best Hemp.
Hemp may grow all over the world,
but the famous Philippine fields are
the ones we know best as yet. They
have a real monopoly on the crop, as
their soil seems to be especially adapt
ed for it. The abaca, as they call it
looks very much like the banana tree.
They belong to the same family, but
the fruit of the hemp tree is not edible,
and the fiber of the banana is not
trong enough to use.
The very best Quality of hemp grown
in the Philippines comes from the
fields about Mount Mayon in Luzon.
The dust and ashes of this majestic
volcano have formed the most perfect
soil for its culture, a soil that Is found
nowhere else in the world.

J. P. HOLLAND, Editor.
Former President William H. Taft
has issued a characteristically frank
and vigorous letter against the pro
posed prohibition amendment to the
United States Constitution. The let
ter is addressed to Allen B. Lincoln,
formerly" of New Haven and now re
siding in Hartford, and a well known
advocate of prohibition for many
years. Among other things he said:
The theory that the national govern
ment can enforce any law will yield
to the stubborn circumstances, and a
federal law will become as much a
subject of contempt and ridicule in
some parts of the nation as laws of
this kind have been in some states.
We are acting now under the heroic
impulses of a war, which stirs our
feelings and makes us think that we
can have a millennium of virtue and
self-sacrifice for the future. This is a
fundamental error. I profoundly de
precate having our constitutional
structure seriously amended by a
feverish enthusiasm. If, through the
abnormal psychology of war, the 36
states are induced to approve a na
tional prohibition amendment now, we
can never change it, though a great
majority of the people may come later
to see its utter failure. Thirteen pro
hibition states can always be counted
on to prevent a retracing of the fool
ish step. We shall thus hang a per
manent millstone around our necks.

Under the present market condi
tions, prices on some commodities are
on the decline, and in order that mer
chants may deal with competition,
permission has been granted them
from Washington to sell their staples
below the low prices published in the
Fair Price Lists.
Prices may go as low as the mer
chants may wish, but if they go above
the high px-ices on the Fair Price
Lists, penalization will follow. Revo
cation of iicense is the popular punish
ment for profiteering, and the En
forcement Division of the Food Ad
ministration expects to a: ply it to all
firms charging excessive prices during
the coming >ear.
The wholesale prices of all of the
staples have been kept from soaring
by the efforts of the I ood Administra
tion during the past year, and seven of
them, including potatoes, flour and
sugar have actually declined in price.
Newark Philosopher Learned Some
thing During the Course of an
Afternoon’s Leisurely Stroll.
The lowing herd wound slowly o’er
the lea. The day had been a delight
ful one for walking and as we swung
along In our tweeds and hobnail shoes,
a heavy stick in our hand, we drank
deep from nature’s fount, learning
many things. As the mild-eyed cows
made their leisurely way down the
road and we stood aside to watch
them pass, the old lines ran through
onr mind, vaguely yet with new ap
propriateness. It never before had oc
curred to us that we had only the
loosest conception of what a lea was,
and now we resolved to find out.
Retracing our steps, we followed
the lowing herd to a pleasant farm
stead with a windmill, a silo, and a
large barn inscribed, “Grade A Pas
teurized Dairy,” w r here we found the
Grade A pasteurized dairyman, by
name Ole Yensen. “Are these,” we
asked, “your Grade A pasteurized
cows?” “Sure,” said Mr. Yensen; “all
bane Holstein stock and not a plugged
one in the bunch.”
“And where is the lea o’er which
they wander?”
Mr. Yensen regarded us with sus
picion. Finally he said: “Ay bane have
a grade cow killed on a grade crossing
once. A man by name Lee he claimed
him and das railroad paid him saventy
fl’ dollar and Ay get nothing. He bane
move away now. Ay don’t know where
he bane gone and Ay don’t care.”
We know now what a lea is, but we
didn’t get it from Yensen.—Newark

In Harper’s Bazar appears a story
said to be told by a young widow em
ployed In the English war office. A
busy staff officer asked a fair col
league to look up the initials of a
certain captain In the Black Watch,
which is a famous Scottish regiment.
“Well?” said the officer, when he
thought a sufficient Interval had
“I can’t find It.”
“But, surely—why, that Isn’t the
army list you’re looking at I”
The assistant’s blue eyes opened
Wide with surprise.

FOOD PitOlii .LitS AND
Upon a report by government in
spectors, F. B. Ives company of Osh
kosh were brought before the Enforce
ment Division of the U. S. Food Ad
ministration for Wisconsin on a
charge of proliteeriag.
At the hearing it was emphasized
that the firm have shown a careless
attitude toward food regulations, have
not kept themselves informed of the
rules and have made overcharges on
various articles.
By the order of Herbert Hoover on
December 11, their license is to be sus
pended for 3 weeks from December 16
to January 6 upon all licensed articles.
Permission is given to thorn, however,
to fill outstanding conti acts up to and
including Decembe. 16 and to dispose
of any and all perishable goods which
they have on hand.
The Betsy Ross company of Chica
go, 111., were brought before the En
forcement Division of the U. S. Food
Administration for Wisconsin for ship
ping sugar out of their own state to
their branch store at Sheboygan. As
there v as no sugar obtained by the
company from the Wisconsin sugar
division and as the company in Chi
cago w.l,s before the Illinois Food Ad
ministration for violation of a food
regulation, the case was turned over
to the Illinois Enforcement Division
for them to handle both infractions.
Some people use the wrong end of
their mental spy-glass in looking at
the misery and suffering in Europe so
that the hungry people over there
seem remote and unreal and very,
very small.
They aren’t still fighting over there,
but they ARE still eating.

Save Heat and the Coal
Will Save Itself
EVERY householder is wondering how he is going
to get through the winter. It is apparent that
| everybody must get along with less coal than last
| winter. Coal dealers are permitted to deliver only
\. two-thirds of the amount used last year. The
other third is uncertain.
Arid two-thirds would be enough if every house
holder would save heat by fitting his house with
Storm Windows and Storm Doors
They keep out the cold and keep in the heat. They keep
the house comfortable and healthful by permitting perfect
ventilation at all temperatures, by eliminating cold floor
dra; ts —and they make it possible to keep tbs house warm
m the severest weather.
windows and storm doors stop the heat leaks so
ti effectively that a house equipped with them actually requires
from one-third to one-half less coal—a saving that pays for
them in one or two seasons. If every house were equipped
with storm windows and storm doors, the fifty million tons
of coal that must be saved would not be missed. Here, then,
is the practical man’s way of saving coal—without sacri
ficing the health and comfort of his family.
We 11 gladly go into particulars with you. Sea or
phone us now and be ready for the winter.
