WHY DRUGGISTS RECOMMEND
SWAMP-ROOT
For many years druggists have
watched with much interest the re
markable record maintained ' by Pr.
Kilmer's Swamp-Root, the great kid
ney, liver and bladder medicine.
It is a physician's prescription.
Swamp-Root is a strengthening med
icine. It helps the kidneys, liver and
bladder do the work nature intended
they should do.
Swamp-Root has stood the test of
years. It is sold by all druggists on its
merit and it should help you. No other
kidney medicine has so many friends.
Be sure to get Swamp-Root and start
treatment at once.
However, if you wish first to test
this great preparation, send ten cents
to Dr. Kilmer ft to., Uinghamton, N.
Y., for a sample bottle. When writing
be sure and mention the Barre Times.

Better and Better
Cooking
The Andes proves that even a range can be
good looking. In the end it is the most
economical because of its greater efficiency -in
burning fuel and because of its more
durable construction.
It is more than chance that makes the
Andes such a good range. The Andes is
good because it is made with just one object
in mind to give American women a range
that helps them do better cooking for less
money.
Only a range that is made of good mate
rials, according to a highly perfected design,
by expert workmen, can give such good
cooking results. Quality counts in a range
just as it docs in clothes or anything else.
Cooking is an art, a gift to be proud of.
And the range is the important tool with!
which you work. Just as a carpenter needs
good tools, so a cook needs a good range.
Let us show you an Andes.

"Better Coohinq for Less Money"

E. A. PRINDLE & CO,
Barre, Vermont.
Export Absorbed a Greater Quantity
Than Usual.
When Austen Chamberlain, British
chancellor of the exchequer, rose in the
House of Commons a week or so ago
and remarked that Americana had add
ed to the mierieg of the world by pro
hibition, because they wanted an im
mensely increased amount of sugar,
he said something for which he ought
to apologize to America. Mr. Cham
berlain was fooled by the statisticians
who reported that the per capita con
sumption of sugar in this country last
year was 10 pounds greater than the
year before. Now these figures are not
exactly what they seem, we are told,
and it waa not America, but Europe,
that vastly increased jtg actual con
sumption of sugar last year.
The British chancellor, if he had ex
amined British Board of Trade reports,
must have known that J-.ngiand in
creased her own consumption of sugar
by S11.000 tons, or 60 per cent, during
Il months of inin, compared with the
same period of 11118. lie cannot offer
the excuse of prohibition for this Brit
isn inaulgenee. it seems to De, one
wsy of saving, "Well, the war's over:
let's have something." If sugar buving
has added to the world's miseries or
happiness Britain has had a big share
ia the matter.
America used 500,000 tons more sug'
ar last year than in IBIS. Used is the
word rather than consumed. We did
not eat all of this excess. Mr. Cham
berlain may be surprised to know that
we sent a large part of it to Europe
under other names. What happened to
our sugar supply in the last year is
beginning to appVar. A large part nf
it left the country in disguise, as pre
served iruit and condensed milK.
In condensed and evaporated milk
America has been satisfying an enor
mous demand from Europe. Our milk
is feeding the babies of Europe. It
has saved the lives of millions, who
must otherwise have starved because
the dairy herds of Europe were slaugh
tered for meat. We sent a hundred
times as much out 'of the country last
year as in 1014. The total of con
densed and evaporated milk exports
a reported by the department of com
merce for II months was 80,000,000
pounds. In value these exports were
near the top of the food list, close be
hind pork products. The total was
$.ViI,000,000.
A very large part of this 8.i0.000.000
pounds of condensed milk was com
poted ol sugar. 1 he amount varies
with the grade of the milk. In some
poorer grades it may reach bO per
cent, in others much less. It seems
certain that at least 2.j(),0(K).000 pounds.
or liio.OiK) tons of sugar, went abroad
in cans labelled condensed milk. Amer
ica did not eat this sugar, although it
appears in the statistical reports as
consumed in this country. Its con
sumption consisted only of mixing it
with milk at the creameries, and seal
ing it in the tin cans ready for ship
ment. The real consumer was not the
American, but the foreign purchaser.
The buyers of about 6no.000.fMIO pounds
of milk were Kuropeans, as the gov
ernment reports show. The others were
scattered in many lands.
Sugar used in preserving milk was
not all that Europe took from us with
out credit from the statisticians. From
our consumption must be deducted the
sugar that went anroad in canned and
other preserved fruit. Of this first
there was a tremendous increase in ex
ports lat year. The weight ia not re
ported. The value as given by the cus
toms officials was 37,OO0,t0 in II
months, compared with only $4,000,000
in 1918. A large part of these fruit
preserves contained as high as 60 per
cent sugar. The canned goods ned
much less. But. like the sugar sent
abroad in condensed milk, it was rat
en, not by Americans, but by foreign
er. though figured in the "American
sugar consumption statistics that have
deceived Mr. liiam berlain and many
others.
There ia a further indefinite deduc
tion from our exeess suar consump
tion due to exports of fruit juices and
extracts. Thc.e in value fr II months
were l,2f6.000, an increase of about
$.t-..tsm.
.Mr. Chamberlain probably did not
take the trouble to learn that America
also sent abroad enormous shipments
of grape eurar and glucose derived
from corn. These exports were no less
than 1 15,000 tons in II months, or
more than four time as much a in
the same period cf I!1. This ship
ment of corn sugar and syrup, of
cwire, was taken from our own fone
and confectionery in4u,tne, and prob
ably replaced by an ejnal amount of
cane nrr.

cinnati genius. Adv.
candy took place in America, no doubt,
as the result of prohibition. But the
figures of consumption and export in-
dicate that the sugar used in these ar
ticles was transferred from other pur
poses. '
Any American housewife knows
where this sugar came from. Last
summer there was a scarcity of sugar!
for the usual household preserving sea
son. The price was prohibitive for
many, ine commercial canners, con-
fectionere and soft drink makers had
provided in advance for their needs.
The housewife had not. So the family
preserves suffered. This has caused
more winter buying of canned fruits
and confectionery.
Our tables are bare of home-made
preserves because our government, un
like that of Britain or France, took no
measure to retain in America all the
sugar that we were able to raise or
buy in Cuba. We might readily have
taken this action a fact that the Brit
ish chancellor fails to apprehend. In
stead, we allowed our milk condensers.
fruit canners and fruit extract makers
to use all the sugar they required, and
to ship their sugared products without
restriction to t.urope.
Mr. Chamberlain owes an apology to
America, and particularly to the Amer
ican housewife, who made the sacrifice.
