HOW TO BEAT HIGH PRICE SUGAR. ThU U How the Memphis Commercial Appeal Would Do It. Sugar is selling around 28 cents a pound. Whenever sugar sells for less than ten pounds for a dollar it is extraordinarily high. Sugar is not going to be much cheaper. The government may ra tion sugar. We have in our hands a partial remedy for the high price of sugar. An acre of sorghum will furnish enough sweetening for any ordinary family with some to spare, and sor ghum can be grown successfully from the Ohio River to the Gulf of Mexico. About now is the time to plant sorghum. Every planter should grow enough to guarantee his ten ants sweetening matter at a low cost during the greater part of the fall and next year. Every small farmer should do the same. Asa commercial crop, sorghum will be high this fall. If any man grows a surplus he can find a ready sale for it.. The cotton products were in the market for sorghum two or three years ago, but the market was not stabilized, and their exper ience was not always happy. Some of the sorghum growers sold their product a tan agreed price and then when there was an advance sold to someone el B e. The Southern people could make it so that the price of potatoes and the high price of sugar, the high price of beans and even corn and meat would concern them very lit tle, but unfortunately they are judg ing the value of the corn crop by the figures on the board. They do not realize that there are millions of bales of cotton in the South not sold. They are getting ready to plant a big crop because here and there some man has sold a bale of cotton for $1 a pound. They forget that for every bale that is sold at $1 a pound there are 100 bales sold at 25 cent 8 a pound. EMILE J. GEX, ATTBNET-AT-tJin’ Will pratie In all local. dUtrlot and federal Mart*. ‘ BAY ST.
