LARGE YIELDS-CHEAPER FOOD BIQ WHEAT YIELD HA8 FAR REACHING EFFECT. Millers Predict That Flour Proes Will Drop Materially This Season. Minneapolis, Aug 15.—An era of low living cost is foreseen In the Indica tions that the Northwest, will have a bumper crop this year. William M. Regan of Regan brothers, bakers, Bald that with cheaper flour, loaves lof bread would be larger. Some mill ers are sanguine enough to believe that there will be a time shortly when bakers will go back to the pound loaf, Instead of the 14 ounce loaf now sold for live cents. Wholesale meat dealers say that If the prospects that now obtain are borne out later, meat will be cheaper because feed will be cheaper. Poultry »ggs and dairy products will expori snce similar decreases in price to the sonsumer. Speaking of the cost, of flour, H. S. Ilclm of the Russell-Miller Milling company said: "Because of the mag nificent prospects of the growing crop wheat prices have already worked flown 20 cents a bushel in few months. In consequence, flour iprlces are 75 to 90 cents a barrel lower than few months ago." J. J. Swan ford of Armour ft Co., re garded as one of the best authorities In the Northwest on conditions in the wholesale and retail meat market, said that if the present promise of a large :'orn crop were fulfilled there would bo little doubt that there would be a decrease in the wholesale and retail price of meat. The effect on the price of dairy products is obvious. Farmers who have not been able to get feed at low prices have sold their cattle to the packer rather than bear the expense of feeding them. If the herds of the United States are increased, and the number of cattle on farms are Increas ed on account of the cheap fodder, the price of milk, butter and eggs should be much lower. The principal applied to live stock may be applied to poultry. Farmers will be able to make a regular busi ness of their chicken raising Instead of allowing it to be a bit or miss in dustry as in years past, when the chic kens have been forced to forage for themselves. It Is estimated by storage men that there are about 6,500,000 pounds more butter and about 145,000 more cases of eggs In storage now than there was a year ago. The season for storing winter supplies will not have passed until Nov. 1. The storage men say that this fact will be another feature that will tend to reduce the cost of living so far as food products are con cerned.
