The latest new feature of Hoover
ization of food during these war days
is the issuing of cards for the cur
chase of flour. The required substi
tutes are rot on the "fifty fifty"
plan, but only require the purchase
of one-fourth substitutes.
Did .you know that the wheat acre
age of North Dakota for 1918 was
nearly 1,000 000 acres over that of
the.preceding year? That looks as
though our farmers, in addition to
being intensely patriotic are long
headed enough to see that governman
tal control of the price of wheat is a
giod thing for the producer—espec
ially whera the crop is put onto the
market as soon as it is threshed.
They should now demand of our law
makers of the Northwest that they
secure enactment ..whitth would take
the control of the price of all farm
products out of, the bands of tbe
Grain price, with the exception of
wheat, which isunder governmental
control, are aeriousty-jfeeling the de
pression in thejtyarkfet'«au«ed by the
a ival on the nair^t isince harvest
and threshing of the crop, of
!»'. vy shipments of Wew grain. The
13. viest slump in price doubtless' is
thf iered by flax, which has gone
to $3.19, while the top price
fbr the crop of last year was $4.20,
tyioging the quotation to-day to a
foliar less than that of the maximum
on last year's crop. Barley les§ than
ofk^ year ago had a local selling
pVice of around $197, while the
best offer now for the new crop is 62
Oents. There has also been a falling
though less preceptible in oats,
which are now on the market at 53
cents, against a top price for the
better grades of last year's crop- of
over 80 cents. This should also argue
favoring a governmental control of
the entire grain market and will have
much to do with making the wheat
producer satisfied with the judgment
4hown when a stable price was set
for this product o! the farm now
aibout a year ago.
'One of the near approaching events
—two weeks "from tonight—will be
Hallowe'en. The days of pranks and
mischief in tho dark hours of' the

however, there will be a number of

tive from Cavalier county I was
asked to run and my candidacy was
endorsed at the Fusion meetings held
in Langdon. I came to Cavalier
county eight years ago from McLean
county, Illinois, and moved on to a
farm purchased the previous year in
Huron township, where I now live.

been given to farming and Btock
raising instead of politics, I am as
interested as any other farmer, in
the problems .confronting us today
and if elected, will do the best that
I can in assisting in the passage of
laws that are fair and just to all.
