"I can lick him."
In another part of the Institution
they were ministering tenderly to An

careful thought, declined to make any
atatement for publication. The sur

O'Malley and Peranaky are, or

the vicinity of North Seventh street. The men employed there work In a
caisson under high air pressure. O'Malley and Peransky, both registered for
the draft and neither returned to work that day.
They entered the air chamber in the aame cage the other day, and s

not to cross him. Peransky, however, wua In that atate of exuberant Amer

They had been fighting furiously for 20 minutes when Policeman Dalton,
aummonod by a foreman on the earth's surface who had received a distress
signal from the earth's Interior, arrived and stopped the fightiug with a few
well-aimed blows of his club. He had found the belligerents rolling on the
floor of the air chamber, while their companions stood about terrified, In
fear apparently that the fighters would do some dnmage to the walls of the
air chamber and he the denth of all hands.
Dalton explained afterward thnt the two men had reached that point of
fighting exhaustion where the tusk of separating them was not cue to draw
heuvlly on the resources of a trained policeman.

Is our nest, honey."
They were married and lived hap
pily for five days at the home of the
dressmaker's brother-in-law.
"Let's go to Ihe farm now," said the bride. Manning agreed and packed
the trunks In the automobile. Then he suggested that his wife draw her

him the money for safe keeping.
"Now we will go Just ns soon ns I get the gas," said Manning. Die

Don't Mention Holdup Men to Officer Blackwell
ROOKLYN.—Policeman George Blackwell, sauntering along Flatbush ave

blessed with long legs, soon caught up

Fm Ov sought asylum In the cellar of an
abandoned carpenter shop at Flatbush
avenue and Chester street. The moith

"Well," Rolltoqulzed the officer, "duty la duty." So, unllmbering his gun,
the officer crawled through.
Shivering and quaking In a far comer of the cellar were the fugitives, the
holdup men. Emanuel Enos, eleven, of 515 Clinton street ; Bay Cadarr, eleven,
of Forty-second street, and Henry Coyle, eleven, of 854 Smith street.
After the csrs began to run again on Flatbush avenue the policeman
learued that with the aid of a potato knife and a cap pistol the three boys had
held up Henry Kngvaldsen. nine, of 218 East Forty-second street, on Church
avenue, near Fortieth street, and taken a quarter from him. Then, re-enforced
by friends, the victim of the hold-up chased thorn all the way to the hole Into
which the boys ran like cotton-tails pursued by houn' dogs.
Justice Wilkin, successfully maintaining his gravity, heard the story Id the
children's court and paroled the "holdup men" for sentence.
Many Feline Aristocrats in Maine Coast Towns
B ANGOR. ME.—Summer visitor* to Main» const towns marveled at the
great number of hnndtumia, long haired cats to be seen In those place«,
even In the homes of the poorest people, and also at the number of old men
and women who derive profit by breed
ing them. The progenitors of these
feline aristocrats were brought to
Maine many years ago by shipmasters
trading up the Mediterranean, from
Persian and African ports. Some
highly successful breeders of Angora
cuts live in Penobscot bay towns, and
they ship cats all over America.

Last Year's Supplies From
World Survey Shows Sufficient Wheat,
But Shortage of Fete—Govern
ment's Stimulative Pro
gram Justified.
With the return of peace America l*
confronted by a food problem even
harder of solution than that with
which we coped In time of war. We
have un entirely new world situation
In food. It will mean essential changes
In our domestic program. B it more
Important than this, It must of necee
sity require Increased export.
Last year we shipped 11,820.000 tons
of foodstuffs to the European Allies.
Had the war continued we would have
Increased this enormous figure to 17,
BTiO.OOO tons In the present year. Now,
with the responsibility of feeding mit
ions of people liberated from the Ger
man yoke, our exports must be brought
up to at least 20,000.000 ton
tieally the limit of loading capacity al
our ports.
World Food Demand Increased.
The end of the war will create an
enorm. usly Increased demand for food.
Humanity demands that the stnrving
millions freed from Prussiun oppres
sion shall have sufficient supplies to
axsure their return to health and pros
perity. If these liberated nations are
faced with starvation they cannot es
tablish orderly governments. Hunger
breeds anarchy In a people. The war
to free the world for democracy will
be lost after It has been won. Amer
ica must continue Its work to libera
tion and by sharing Its food make de
mocracy safe In the world.
In order to meet this new situation
the Food Administration has made a
careful survey of the food resources of
the whole world In relation to the to
tul demands. Computing supplies on
the basis of the avoidance of waste
and wag consumption, It Is found that
wheat and rye may he obtained In suf
ficient quantities to meet economical
world consumption ; high protein feed
for dairy animals will show a shortage
of about 3.000,000 tons, while there

or even If tlielr rations are slightly In
If (he European countries,
however, are to resume their normal
sugar consumption It will he through
our continued conservation In order
to share with them. There Is a sur
plus of coffee.
Of the world total required to pro
duce these results North America will
furnish more than 60 per cent. The
United States, Including the West In
die«, will be In a position to furnlah
a total of about 20.000,000 tom
against our pre-war exporta of about
6,000,000 tons.
The bread grains situation allows
the world to abandon the use of snb
stitutes In wheat bread. I.arge sup
plies have accumulated In the Argen
tine, Australia and other hitherto In
accessible markets. A continued high
milling percentage, economy of con
sumption and elimination of waste
make It possible for the world to re
turn to a white wheat loaf.
Of all our export possibilities In
fats, the largest and most Important
Item Is pork. While wa cannot supply
the world deficiency, we will be able
to help It enormously because of the
past policies of stimulating production
and restraining consumption. The

The average American

vision, open-minded men who
believe in their country and strive
to meet their country's needs.
The men in the packing industry
are no exception to the rule.
The business of Swift &
Company has grown as the na
tion has progressed. Its affairs
have been conducted honorably,
efficiently, and economically, re
ducing the margin between the
cost of live stock and the selling
price of dressed meat, until today
the profit is only a fraction of a
cent a pound—too small to have
any noticeable effect on prices.
The packing industry is a big,
