The "hunger map" and the ap peal attached to it sent out by the food administration for publication is jpteoded to show the food con ditions in the war-wasted countries according to the best information available'December i. Little has been learned as to changes that hav( taken place in the situation there set forth, with the exception of the not unimportant discovery that the Ukraine has grain stores available for the relief of Turkey and the Balkans. The map would indicate that Armenia is as access ible as Turkey to this source of supply. From Germany comes re ports that there is a food shortage among the population of non-pro* ductive regions, but it is believed this situation can be bettered by correct methods of distribution and by diverting supplies from the wealthier sections of the country. Germany, in the disorder of revolution, threatens to swing from an excess of individualism under the kaiser to an excess of commun ism under the radical element of the proletariat. If things are not adjusted soon there may be no firmly established government at Berlin to accept and comply with the peace terms when the confer ence at Versailles completes its task. Speedy compliance with the terms to be imposed must precede the evacuation of German soil by the allied armies, if that evacuation is to take place within a reasonable peribd of time. The insurance commissioner of the state of Washington sees no reason why fire insurance com panies, able to pay ten to fifty per cent dividends, need the ten per cent increase in rates they are de manding on the plea of "war necessity." . A Word of Appreciation y We do not think it is right to close our books for the year without showing our appreciation for the business you have given us in the past. We therefore thank you. One and All, for your patronage for the past year, and hope to be able to serve in this Next New Year. We wish you all a Merry Xmas and a Happy and Prosperous New Year. Reiniger Bros. Cash Grocery Rathdrum, Idaho Let us all try to greet the New Year with optimism and an abid ing faith in the greater prosperity and better things which promise to follow the storm clouds which now happily appear to be rolling away. Thf. merchant or business con cern in a town which will not advertise in the home paper is not hurting thé home paper as much as he is the town. It's the spirit involved.—Nez Perce Herald. .6 of It is reasonable to presume that the various lines of business that suffered by reason of the war should prosper again when normal conditions return. It is not amiss if a little of the Christmas spirit be projected into and through the new year. STAND WITH THE ALLIES. By Reducing Consumption People of the United State* Averted a Famine at Home In Splta el Low Supplie*. The fact that the people of the United State« were able to reduce by more than one-half million tons their July, August, September and October conaumptton of sugar prove« conclu sively that tbelr war conscience was thoroughly awakened and that the country as a whole stood ready to fol low the Injunctions of the Government. Our normal consumption of sugar In tbs four-month period beginning with July has been 400,000 tons per month, a total of 1,000,000 for the quarter year. Ia July, when our. sugar stringency began to reach Its height, consumption was reduced to 260,000 tons. In Au gust only 823,000 ton. went Into dis- . trttmtlQB and In September only 279,- ' 000 tons. In October the distribution fell to 290,000 tons. If the general public had failed to observe the injunctloas of the Food Administration this .country would have been In the throes of a sugar famine before the end of August Our visible supplies were so low as to bring great anxiety to those familiar with tbs sugar situation. They feared that It would bo absolutely impossible to reduce consumption to n point where sugar would no longer be a mere lux ury in the American diet Few accomplishments of the Food Administration will stand forth so pre dominantly as this reduced consump tion of sugar. By It we have been able to bridge over the period of stringency until the new beet and Louisiana cane sugar crops were In sight Now the nation Is In a position so that if we choose we may return to our normal home use of sugar, and Europe, with the release of ships to go far afield, can maintain Its recent re stricted rations. If, however, those nations are to Increase their use of sugar very considerably it must be by our continued sharing with them through limiting our own consump tion.

Government Juetlfied in Stimulation of Pork Production—Sevenfold Increase Over Pre War Exports. ■ Through Increased production and consecration we will be able this year to export seven times our pre-war average exports of pork products, . ^^^^« heavy demands added ln car ' ln « for th * mllllon8 who have been freed from German oppression, the Department of Agriculture and the Food Administration are Justified to day in our every action of stimulation of hog production. In the coming year the greatest world shortage will be In fats, and pork will help to save this situation. The efficacy of the policy of stimulated production has built up In this country supplies which will en able us to supply a very large part of the fat deficiency of the world. In beef there must be a shortage In Eu rope, due largely to limited refrigera tor ship capacity. All freezer ships available, however, will be filled by America, Argentine and Australia. The contribution made by the pro ducers of this country to the war pro gram as applying particularly to ani mal food products Is illustrated by the following: j Reports compiled by the U. S. De- | partment of Agriculture Indicate an Increase In cattle of 10,238,000 head and 12,441,000 hogs. These figures were compiled to January 1 last. In this period there was a decrease In sheep of 819,000 head. The Indica tions are that this decrease will show an increase, according to recent re ports. i Since January 1 unofficial Informa tion Indicates an Increase in hogs of not less than 8 per cent and not more than 15 per cent as compared with one year ago, with an increase in the nveruge weight I Following the request of the U. S. j Food Administration for an increase | In hog production for marketing In the fall of 1918 aud the spring of 1919 the Increase may yield not less than 1,000, 000.000 pounds more of pork products titan were available Inst year. With- ; out this Increase the shipping program arranged by Mr. Hoover regarding an- | Imal food products would hove beeu Impossible. The dressed hog products during the three months ending September 30, 1917, amounted to 903,172,000 pounds, while for the corresponding months of 1918 the dressed hog products totaled 1,277,589,000, an Increase of over 374, 000,000 pounds for the quarter. During the same period for 1917 the records of Inspected slaughter of dressed beef showed 1,263,000,000 pounds as against 1,454,000,000 pounda for the three month period ending September 1, this year. to to so to go of by ■ I I j j ' Food control made sufficiency from shortage, kept the rein on food prices, gave the nation's full strength exer cise.
