FIXING THE BLAME.
Here's where the farmer and the wrongfully abused retail grocer get the
blame again from many a town and city housewife.
When Milady goes to the store and buys any of the various breakfast
foods made out of wheat, she finds that the price is as high under $1 and $1.25
wheat as it was under $2 and $2.50 wheat. If; here and there, the price has
been reduced a bit, it is because the neighborhood grocer has shaved his own
profit almost to the vanishing point-he, himself, pays just as much as ever
Cause? The cause is the millionaire millers of Minneapolis, who in
sist on war profits, when war and inflation have long passed.
Our keenly alert contemporary, the Fairmont (Minn.) "Sentinel," decided a
to look into the thing. First, the editor wrote to the editors of the Minne
apolis daily papers and asked them for a report on why the millers continue to
charge $9.50 a case for the breakfast foods which they make out of by-products 'I
of flour. The millionaire millers are a great power in Minneapolis, so "The top
Sentinel" received no replies. bra
Then "The Sentinel" called on the Minnesota State dairy and FOOD Com- Naf
missioner for an answer. Inasmuch as the food of the two or three million Cu'f
people of Minnesota are not the concern of that State's food commissioner, ma,
he passed the buck to the commissioner of agriculture.
And so "The Sentinel's" insistent search for light goes on. There can be T
ncaly one result; the millers will be shown up. Meanwhile, every decent brig
American will applaud the Fairmont "Sentinel" in its effort to expose breeders girl
American will applaud' ETAOIN NSHRDLU IUCMFYP PPP CMFWYPPFWW and
of Bolshevism who sit in high places. and
The conditions in Minnesota are no different than our local sea food mar- T
ket. The fishermen get from 35c to 60c for a basket of crabs containing from tool
one hundred to one hundred and fifty crabs, but the housewife has to pay at ider
the rate of 3 to 4 c a piece for what the fishermen receives but %c. The profit beir
of 600 to 800 per cent is divided between the middleman and the retailer, ceas
the former getting the lions share. and
HOMEY PHILOSOPHY FOR 1922 No.
Now that everybody's talkin' through the air, why not let the trees hold M
a bit of conversation? Do you see one in the back yard-tall, dignified, state- droi
ly? Gee, when the wind blows how it bends, but it don't break. Roots are was
seep and firm in the ground. How about our roots? Are they planted deep in here
the ground of common sense, poise, kindly interest and all the other things took
that make a man a man. Then we sit under the shelter of the branches of our Opel
friend and wonder about our own branches. Are they reaching out in help
fulness and gathering under their protecting leaves the poor and the down- suT
trodden and those who are bearing the heat an' burden of the day? Say, that Grou
old tree can talk for hours if you'll just start him goin'. was
' Poem McIra

Pity, O pity the fat man, when the sun beats down from above; my heart
goes out to that man, which nobody seems to love. I feel for the lumbering
lubber, as he waddles the red-hot street . . . Excuse me while I blubber a
wall that is hard to beat.
Once he was trim as you are, as he follered the dear old plow; but he
found a digestion somewhere, and Jeeminy, look at him now! Moppin' his 8uc
brow unsesidn' till his visage is fiery red,-his ponderous heft incresin' he's Olivia

Thea drap a tear for the fat man, as he wallers along through life; there's Se
eothin' so sad as a fat man, unless it's a man's fat wife . . With the ps
price of shippin' advancin' and food a-rasin' by spurts, there ain't much hope
