Crops Are 40 Per Cent. Less
Than Pre-War Average-Ceri
tral Powers Hit Hardest.
Allied Beet Production Falls One-third
in Rigid War Economy
The world today Is producing forty,
per cent. less beet sugar than the pre-r
war average.
Counting the American, Allied and ,
German-Austrian crops, as well as the I
neutrals, the U. S. Food Administra
tion has estimated that the world
shortage created by the light crop of
1917-1918 is at least three and a half
million tons.
That the 1917-1918 crop of cane sug
ar was two million tons in excess of'
the previous year does not relieve the
general shortage.
Cuba and Java produce one-half of.
the world cane crop, and the Java sug
ar is too far removed from America to
transport when shipping is badly need
ed to transport and maintain the mili
tary forces in France.
In Java a large part of the old sugar
crop is still awaiting shipment. Since
It requires 150 to 160 days for each
boat that is sent to Java, the possibili
ties of obtaining adequate shipments
of Java sugar this season are remote.
Alles' Production Falls
Taking the Allied nations as a group,
offclal reports show that beet sugar
production is less by one-third than the
pre-war average.
French beet sugar industry has suf
fered most by the war. The French
yield of beet sugar is now only 29.1
per cent. of the pre-war average.
For the five years preceding the out
break of hostilities In Europe, France
produced an average of 752,542 tons of
sugar each year. For 1917-18 the
French production was 219,416 tons.
With 61 "actories operating, as com
pared with more than 200 that were
In existence before the war and before
the general campaign of destructive
ness launched by the German armies,
France nevertheless managed to manu
facture more beet sugar in 1917-18
than in 1916-17, when the total outpuat
was 202,415 tons
Italy In 1917-18 produced 100,800
tons of beet sugar, which was 56,000
tons less than the previous year and
110,250 less than the annual output of
sugar for the ive year pre-war pe
One of the great dfficultl-s expert
enced in Italy's beet sugar Industry
was finding sufficelnt labor to handle
the crop. Thousands of men usually
employed in beet sugar production
were called for military service. The
yield per acre amounted to approxi
mately half of the usual quantity of
beets harvested.

"The English church army is doing

Invention of Philadelphia Man Does
Away With Racket When Cars
Cross Intersection.
The problem of suppressing the
noise and shock of the street car In
passing ove'r an intersection has been
attacked in a novel manne'r by a Phil
adelphia inventor. Samuel B. Meeker,
who accomplishes the' object without
the use of anty of the Imoving and in
terlocking parts which characterize
most of the inventlonse for this pur
pose, and without making any great
changes In the design of the crossing
itself. The letter is constructed in
one piece or unit, and at a point slight
ly in advance of the intersection of the
rail sections.
Each rail section is formed with the
face of the rail cut away in an incline
which allows the weight of the vehicle
to pass from the base of the wheel to
the flange on which it continues for a
few feet, until the wheels have passed
entirely over the intersection, when the
weight of the car again passes to the
base of the wheel. This change is so
gradually accomplished that it is not
noticeable to the passengers and the
car passes over the crossing without
jolt or noise. The latter is a matter
of great importance to persons living
in the vicinity of such Intersections,
for the pounding of the cars over them
at night comprises a serious annoy
America's First Steel Rails.
In 1865, as an experiment, the North
Chicago Rolling Mill company manu
factured six Bessemer steel rails from
steel produced at Wyandotte. Mich.
They were the first made in Am'erica,
the modest beginning of a great in
dustry. A New York mill, using ma
terial turned out at Troy, made fuie

Cambria company began to roll BeP.

price paid was $1S10 gold per too,

Increased planting of vegetables this

This will mean plentiful supplles for

This surplus, to be usetful to Amer
