twelve-hundred potato flour mills of

wheat flour to make a better bread
than could be made from wheat flour

During the war the industry has
been transferred to America by the
erection of a few mills, and they are
making good ln a way that arouses
interest of conservative folks who
not usually take up with new

The use of culls, and cut or broken
potatoes for making flour is one of
larger considerations that appeal

enables him to market all of his

from perfect grading of his
number one variety. It also enables
farmers to market every potato crop

with the Non-partisans and has
eluded that it is a queer co-operative

has to give up his individuality

and he quit. It was rumored that
they exerted considerable pressure
to try to keep him in the league,
it was reported also that they made
some sort of veiled threat about what
would happen if he left them.

it all amounted to and the following
statement by Mr. Stewart is in

Blackfoot, Idaho, Oct. 14, 1918.
To whom it may concern:
I joined the Non-partisan league
under the impression and representa
tions ,of the organizers that
league was a non-political organiza
tion and that its chief objects were
to benefit the farmers by co-operative
legitimate work' on their part, and
not a political league to array one
class against another as I no#
lieve this organization to be. I was
assured by the organizers that
league would not be used for politi
cal purposes. This representation
have now found to be without foun
I am first of all an American and
no organization can direct either
threats or otherwise how I shall
ercise my right of suffrage and citiz
In this county the activities of the
Non-partisan league are directed
chiefly, as far as I have been able
to learn, thru James Fbndlebury, W.
C. Sollenberger, and E. A. Doud and
they take their inspiration from A.
C. Townley and his agents.
1 had a conversation with W. C.
Sollenberger in which he told me that
I should "stick'' to the league and
vote for its candidates; that I was
young man of influence and ability
and if I did not "stick" my career
would be ruined and I would be
"dead one." The threat did not in
timidate me because I alone would
suffer the consequences of my action,
if the threats were attempted to be
carried out. I reserve the right to
exercise my franchise in harmony
with patriotic impulses and sound
discretion. Because I could not do
that and remain a member of the
league, and for the other
stated. I have severed by connection
with the league.

It has been stated that the amount
of canned food on the market next
year wilt be but a small percentage
of the normal amount The govern
ment has contracted for much of the
factory product for our army and
navy. With the prospect of a de
creased amount of canned food un
less ^ie housewives come to the fore
with their home product, there may
be many under-fed people In the
United States. To a person who has
had too little food, or not the right
kind of food the 'World looks pretty
gloomy, and the letters that will be
written to the soldiers abroad by
those people will reflect their feel

stated that men fvho worry about
their home conditions do not make
good soldiers, and that letters from
home are a great factor in the effici
ency of the troops: which hitches
the pantry shelves up directly with
the fighting line. If you don't have
good food ,you can't write cheerful
letters, and if soldiers don't have

then bought out a small paper, the

take the little old paper anjl build

order shut him off, for every pub

Now that Purcell has bought the lit

experienced publishers were looking
for a way to let go.
Blackfoot publisher Restrained
Editor Trego of the Idaho Republi
can of Blackfoot, was planning
change his paper from a semi-weekly
to a tri-weekly on the twenty-third
of September, but the order not
establish any new papers went into
effect the first of September and
when he applied for a permit to go
on with his plans it was refused. He
had not gone to any special expense
for the increased service, more than
to train some additional help, and
that was not considered of sufficient
importance among "previous ar
rangements'' to justify letting him
go on with an increased consumption
of print paper at a time when orders
were being given to reduce consump
tion to 85 per cent of what had been
used. The triweekly will be post
