DOING THEIR DUTY
Many mines are striving to get out
a creditable production of precious
metals absolutely necessary to suc
cess of the war; although It is gen
erally understood that there Is little
money In mining now. In comparison
with profits in 1916 and 1917. Scarci
ty of labor and high wages; scarcity
of machinery, powder and other ne
cessities. and the uniquely high prices
for everything have made for depriv
ing many of the operating mining
companies of their normal profits.
This Ir seen in an Indicated reduc
tion this year in dividends.
SELLERS OF SPOILED WHEAT

wheat according to a statement is
sued by H. A. Lemmon In Reno to
“Information has reached this of
fice that feed wheat is being sold at
profiteering prices, both by farmers
and by the grain trade.” commented
Mr. Lemmon. "It is even alleged
that certain farmers have been guilty
of mixing water, dirt and other waste
matter in with good wheat, so that
the mills will refuse the grain and
it may be sold for higher prices as
feed Warning is given that this
constitutes a criminal practice under
the Food Control Act. and that all
offenders caught doing this will be
penalized. Waste of food, or adul
teration of food in order to profiteer,
are normal treason when every pound <
of food is needed for the Allies and >
the American feople.”
