THE TRUTH ABOUT CANDY
I There*s a Certain Amount
of Candy Coming to You
The Food Administration finite it can set aside a certain amount
of sugar for candy making and this amount (now about 4% of the
$ total yearly production) is being given to the candy makers.
(Chocolate Is made up mainly of cocoa, sugar and sometimes
If You Wish to Forego Taking it,
Then Send it to a Soldier.
,, When you see candy offered for sale, you know that it is made with
<► ,sugar whicli the Food Administration'has set aside for that purpose.
Part of that candy is yours—your system will find it good food.
But if you wish to forego it, you can show your patriotism by 1
sending it to some soldier boy.
Ask any soldier why he eats candy so eagerly, and he will tell
i> you that it is because candy is of tremendous value as a food. A ,
pound of candy is much more nourishing than a pound of beefsteak.
,, During violent exercise and heavy work (according to scientists),
' ' the system draws very heavily on its natural heat or "body fuel."
J' This body fuel is composed of carbohydrates. These carbohydrates
< > are supplied to the system largely through the sugar which is eaten.
]' Some people take sugar with coffee; others eat it heavily on fruit;
], others like theirs made up into candy and mixed with fruits and nuts
o and other ingredients used in candy making. It is much a matter
If of individual taste.

"I never went into a campaign without chocolate. I always have •
a few cakes of It in my kit when I go Into service. Men fight like

<» soned soldiers take it on the march with them.
Soldiers in ail armies are eating more and more candy. The

S. J. Donaldson Talks
S. J. Donaldson, of the society of
Equity of Pocatello, and James Pen
dlebury, their local representative at
Blackfoot, who is also manager for
the Blackfoot Potato Growers' asso
ciation, were callers at the Republi
can office the last of the week.
Mr. Donaldson is one of the best
informed men in the state regarding
potato markets, and he advises
farmers to market their potatoes
when they can get a fair price, but
to stop shipping if the market goes
down around the dollar mark. He
says the supply in the United States
Is limited to such an extent that the
price cannot go down low and re
.main there excepting by the glutting
of the market. If shipments are
gradual, the prices will not be dis
turbed. He said that some localities
have been hurting the market by
shipping unripe potatoes and they ar
rive at destination in bad condition
and there is much loss on them, be
cause they have to .be sorted and
much thrown out. That action is
hurting the growers everywhere, and
especially in the localities they ship
from. It is also wasting food pro
ducts and man power at a time when
we can ill afford it.
Arrangements are being made by
the farm market bureau to have all
potatoes inspected before shipment
is made, to prevent this loss of food,
the 1088 ° f shipping service and the
injury to the market. The inspec
tion will go into effect this week. Mr.
Donaldson thinks a grower must re
ceive 50 cents per hundred more for
potatoes to pay him for holding them
till holiday time as compared with
selling them in the field. Mr. Pen
dlebury with his fine facilities for
handling and storing potatoes hand
les them much cheaper than that so
that loss by shrinkage and cost of
handling is as low as 15 cents per
hundred for that period, but Mr.
ponaldson does not think others are
so situated that they can do it on
such close margins.
Mr. Donaldson is a member of the
Non-partisan league and helped to
organize this county. He says the
league is loyal and that the leaders
the state and nation are loyal not
withstanding reports to the contrary.
Mr. Pendlebury remarked about
the Allred letter, (Paul Allred) pub
MARK IN DRIVE
Liberty Loan Subscrip
tions Are Coming in
Steadily and Advance
State Well Toward
The banks of the state show up
to date that Idaho has 48,574 sub
scribers who have subscribed $8,311,
050 thru the banks of the state. The
state's quota is $14,700,000.
From the latest reports the head
quarters of the state liberty loan
counts on twenty-one counties which
have either subscribed their quota
in full or whose chairmen have guar
anteed the quota.
It is evident from the county re
ports that the rating system is the
only one which has proved a perfect
success. Those counties in which the
man's proportion of bonds was fig
ured are the ones which have com
pleted their quota.
Good County Reports
L. E. Dillingham of Custer county
writes that Custer's quota of $170,
000 has been subscribed, and *the
names of the subscribers are now in' 1
Lost river district over
The chairman writes:
"Thru the rating system we have
more than doubled the subscribers
in this county."
Boundary county wires that 60
per cent of its quota has been raised.
Valley county wires that $60,000 of
its quota of $70,000 is subscribed
and the quota is safe.
From Blaine county comes the
word that Crooks and Muldoon have
their full quotas. Chairman A. W.
Ensign is sure the full quota will be
in in a few days.
lished in Monday's Republican in
which he criticised the league and he,*
Penldebury, said he did not think it
was fair to have men of Mr. Allred's
standing and record in the- commun
ity giving out their views against the
league as if they were a fair measure
of public opinion. He disbelieved
that Mr. Allred was not a man of
high standing in the community and
that if he remembered correctly All
red had been the defendant in some
criminal prosecutions in the courts
within the past few years, and he
was going to look up his record and
see if people shall judge of the league
by what Allred says to them. He
did not like to stir up that kind of
fights, but he would at least look
him up and see what type of man
was cirticising the league.
We replied that Allred had been
the defendant in some prosecutions
and so had many other people includ
ing the editor of this paper, but that
it had been shown that when the per
sonal elements and spite element had
been accounted for, there was slight
basis left for them to stand on. That
it would be their privilege to bring
Allred's or any man's record into the :
campaign if they chose, the same as
the record of league leaders is being
brought into it. That a man's re
cord for deeds and citizenship and
who and what he had Helped or op
posed would help to establish his
correct measure for the problems
now confronting the public.
Then the editor and his callers in
dulged in a discussion of league lead
ers and their records, and they
claimed that the much criticised
Arthur LeSeur has nothing to do
with the league, and that men high
in the government vouch for the
rectitude of their work and pur
poses. They said that they were the
men who talked to Paul Allred about
joining the league, spent two hours
telling him of its principles, and that
he turned in his membership to their
organizer when he came along, act
ing apparently entirely on the infor
mation they had given him, so they
felt rather keenly his imputation that
the league is not a clean, legal, loyal
organization. They said that so far
as they had gone in its political activ
ities it was clean, open and above
board, and were much impressed
with it at the state convention at
Boise in the selection of candidates
for office. The offices sought the
men in most cases, and nobody
seemed eager to be on the ticket; on
the contrary they had a hard time
get men to accept the nominations,
especially to make the race for con
Ye editor told his guests that if
they were satisfied with the leader
ship of the league and satisfied with
what it is working to accomplish, it
was all right for them to continue
the work, but that for the past year
the writer had not shared in the
leadership. He had not been favor
ably Impressed with speakers and or
ganizers he had met, nor with the
sentiment expressed by the radical
element that joins the league. They
had sho!wn too much tendency to de
cry everything and everybody that
did not agree with them and co-oper
ate with them. That they had al
ways denounced the newspaper men
a whole, not even making excep
tions of the fairmtnded editors who
had given them space and publicity
right along, the same as others who
were trying to do something. They
slur all newspapers as the "Kept
press," until they get hold of the
papers themselves, and then it be
comes just the kind of a kept press
they complain of in others they have
been condemning. They denounce
bankers because they are doing a
banking business, and then open
banks themselves. They have not
improved upon the methods or prin
ciples of doing business and show the
same spirit that is manifested by the
Bolshevici, in demanding that every
body agree with them or be crushed.

ROADS, ROADS AND MORE ROADS
(By F. N. Parkinson)
Here is a new one in the road
business in Bingham county. It's
for you Mr. Taxpayer. Think it
over, talk it over and then come to
one of the business meetings of Bing
ham county Civic league and see
that it gets attention.
For some months the secretary of
this league has been trying the best
he could to get the road from Black
foot on the north of Bannock county
on the south and which is commonly
known as the Fort Hall road placed
in such a condition that the citizens
of our county wouiu not be ashamed
of it. We have had the matter un
der discussion for weeks, yes months,
and have taken it up with the state
of Idaho officials, with the Yellow
stone Highway association and with
public men everywhere. No action
could be obtained from any depart
ment nad we had a hard time learn
ing the reasons, but we now have
them in part, and it is ii) them you
will find the most interest:
The state would take no action, so
we wrote the federal government.
