Appropriations totaling $36,298,405,223 have been authorized by this Congress, the statement said.

These measures undoubtedly will be passed before the end of this session, he said. W.S.S. NEW FOOD RULES. Commencing Tuesday of this week the estimated 9,000,000 people who take their meals in public eating places' went under stricter food reg ulations than last year. The new reg ulations of the Food Administration are planned to avoid wlieatless, mea' iess and other emergency days, replac ing them by a system which evenly reduces the consumption of all foods and eliminates waste. Hotels, restaurants, cafes, club and dining car service throughout the country are affected by the twelve regulations. All bread served in such places must contain at least 20 per cent of wheat flour substitutes. Two ounces of this, victory bread of four ounces of corn bread or muffins, Bos ton brown bread, rye bread, etc., arc the maximum allowances for one meal. Bread may not be used as a garniture or under meat, and it must not be put on the table until after the first course is served, thus pre venting wasteful nibbling. One kind of meat only may be serv ed at one meal. Meat includes beef, mutton, perk, poultry and all by products of these. This eliminates bacon as a garniture. Only half-onnce portions of cheese and butter ire allowed per meal, and cream must not contain over 20 per ent of butter fats. The sugar bowl is to be completely banned from the table or counter. Patrons may have it upon request to the extent of one teaspoonful or its equivalent per meal. The sugar ition for the public eating places is two pound for every 90 meals serv- d, including cooking and table use. In addition to these regulations, which directly affect the patron, the management of any hotel or rstau- int, or other public dining room must not bum any food waste. All Should be served to feed animals or reduced to obtain fats and fertilizers, This system will make it impossible for the thoughtless or willful food hog to get more than his share or to waste food. It simplifies the diner's prob lem of eating patriotically FLU" CONTINUES ON THE WANE Average for Past Week Less Than 20 New Cases a Day. CHRISTMAS PACKAGES FOR SOLDIERS IN FRANCE.

This committee worked faithfully for two years and submitted a report to cne Legislature recommending the passage of certain statutes, and tin adoption of an amendment to Section 112 of the Constitution. This amendment as prepared by the Fiscal Committee, w, ; adopted by both branches of the Legislature, prac tically without opposition, and will be submitted for ratification at the gen eral election on the 5th day of Novem ber and reads as follows: "Amend Section 112 of the Constitu tion of the State of Mississippi so that it. will read as; follows: SUCTION 112. The power of taxa tion shall never be surrendered, sus ponded, or contracted away. All taxes shall be uniform upon the same clasa of property within the territorial limits of the authority levying the tax, and shall be levied and collected for nub ile purposes only, but property shall never be assessed for taxes for more than its true value. The Legislature Shall have power to divide property In to classes for the purpose of taxation. The Legislature may impose a per capita tax upon such domestic animals as from their nature and habits are destructive of property. All ex emptions shall be by general law. The Legislature may provide for a special mode of assessment for rail roads, and for other public service corporations, or other corporate prop erty, or for particular species of prop erty belonging to persons, corpora tions or associations." It is not the purpose of this state- uisui. tu eiiier iiiio an extended argu ment, for the ratification of this tax amendment the Fiscal Committee in Its report set out In detail the many reasons for Its adoption. It is proper however, to state that the amendment ,3 approved by the National Tax Asso- ciation. A similar amendment has re ' -Kfly been latlfled by the people ll Kentucky and Oregon; several other ".fates have previously adopted such rmendmont. Scores of legislative committees, In nearly every state of the Union, have in every instance, so far as we are ad vised, urged the adoption of an amen ment similar to the one to he vote:; '.'.you. All have recognized the break down of taxation systems oontainin clauses that all property of wh never kind shall he taxed on a uniform basii and according to Its true value. The essential difference between the proposed amendment and the section ts it now reads, is that under the pro posed amendment 'tlie legislature shall have power to divide property into classes .or the purpose of taxation." The Legislature at present is pow erless to effect relief, through it mar realise that different classes of prop arty must be recognised in taxation in erdcr to afford any substantial reli:-. to our present systom. ft Is jun as logical to r,ay that the tariff shall be (he same, on every kin oi property, or thai the same privilege tax shall be imposed on each trade o profession, as it is lo contend that all I Indl of property shall be assessed on the same basis of value. It i to be carefully ncted that the amendment, as submitted, does not ol itself make any change in taxation sy t tern of Mississippi, but It simply ma!:-1 it possible for future legislatures o meet the demands of the entire Slate for a modem and mere equitable fiscal system frhtuh demand has existed fo: so many years. It is hut fair to state that the Fiscal Committee regards the ratification of his amendment as the most importun; ntca which can be taken to make possi ble a remedy of the preset situation This Committee labored for two year.-. without compensation, and submitted this amendment as the most important results i REAL ESTATE IN JACKSON COUNTY Recorded in Chancery Clerk's Office For Week Ending October 18th.
