He was taken there with a fractured hip, but death it was stated, was due probably to a tubercular abcess. Private Adams left here last Sept ember. Previous to his enlistment he was a bookkeeper in a department store at Columbus. One of the sadest features of his demise, came through a misunder standing or what is termed army red tape. On being informed of their son's serious illness, Mr. and Mrs. Adams and daughter left Thursday for Camp Sherman, where they arriv ed in the evening, but were denied admission by the guards at the camp, and told to return and get an order from the commanding officer in the morning. Friday morning when they returned to camp from Chilllcothe they were informed that he had died during the night.

The amount of wheat substitutes In vic tory bread is 20 per cent. Potatoes may be sold as a substi tute if grocers cannot obtain sufficient of the other substitutes. Potatoes then may be sold in the proportion of four punds to one pound of wheat flour, instead of the pound-for-pound basis. In the sale of whole wheat or gra ham flour, three pounds of substi tutes shall be sold with each five lbs. of either whole wheat or graham flour. A special ruling is made for farm er producers who buy wheat flour. They may purchase wheat flour from retailers without a corresponding amount of substitutes on condition that they furnish a signed statement showing they have in their possession and are using required amounts of either corn meal or buckwheat flour or both. Such statements shall show a pound of corn meal or buckwheat flour or both for every pound of ihased. Without the statement the farmer is held to the same requirements as other consumers. Exchange is Permitted Custom grinding is permitted. That Is, farmers may take wheat of their own production to mills or grain elevators and exchange it for wheat flour without substitutes. Retailers, millers and other deal ers are not allowed to sell to indi vidual consumers, representing fami lies of ordinary size, in villages and cities, more tha na quarter barrel at any one time as a 30-day supply. Those living in rural communities, not so easily accessible to markets, may purchase not to exceed half a barrel of flour at a time. Retailers who do not comply with provisions of the combination sale rule are forbidded to sell white flour, except by special exemption from the rule, granted by the state food ad ministration on the specific and writ ten recommendation of the local or county administration committee. The new regulations effect even flour ordered before Suuday but not yet delivered. Croxton emphasizes the fact that the combination sales wttn wheat flour are compulsory.
