This phase of the problem offers another that should be seriously con sidered and that is the means that may be requisitioned to offset. That the average American wastes as much as he actually utilizes has been often stat ed for a fact, certainly by foreign economists. Hence the reverse of the slogan: The cost of high living rather than the high cost of living. A leading grocer in commenting on this phase of the problem had the . following timely advice to give: .-.. "Why can't people substitute fruits and vegetables, on which there has been little or no change in price, es pecially rice, for higher priced meats and ; foodstuffs Why - not- eliminate some of the fancy dishes and get back to certain of the staple stuffs which are known to be more nutritious, more inexpensive and by far -more wholesome?"

And these suggestions come: from . the men whose interest it isJ;o increase the demand! As another said: "I believe in prices affording a realization of a gain, but the way the people are having to pay for things now and the gain of the man in practical control of the market is unreasonable." He had particular - reference to the sudden increase in the cost of sugar. The cost of this com-, modity and the practical famine in Charlotte today is the direct result o the operations of a few men 'who have established a practical "corner," it was said. Sugar is hardly to be had at all, and when gotten the retailer must pay . a price far larger than he has known in many years. The greater utilization of fruits and of such cereals as rice that have only advanced slightly will go a long way towards relieving the present situa- . tion. Prunes have made only slight advances and beans likewise. Of course these commodities have gone up but not in the ratio with the rest. Charlotte Observer. side. The man who bai a ho"d of good breeding' cows surely will have a div idend payer in th.e future. To assem. blc a LTci heit of breeding cows is by no means a small task. In building up a herd of breeding cows, there aie two very important things to consider type and uniformity of type. If a breeder can get his herd recog nized as producing cattle of a cerin desidable type and then turns out only that type, he will be able to secure better prices on the average than if he has always a few of many kinds to offer. A man then starting out to breed cattle must first make up his mind what type he wants to produce, and then act accordingly. It Is by no means necessary that cattle be th, best in the world to make a breeder famous. He will do well if he suc ceeds in creating a reputation for al ways having in his herd the real reiit. paying, thick-fleshed kind with size, substance, and Quality. Uniformity in a herd is the surest index of the skill of the breeder. A" study of the must successful herds Oi tfc,s country vv ill demonstrate that uniformity Of type and uniformity of breeding are most desirable if the highest and best results die to be ob tained. The, uniform herd will pro duce cattle more nearly o one type, and for that reason they rih look bet ter, feed better, sell beUer,, and pro duce better. The key to successes sound judgment to jnaintain a uniform COBRECTS STORY. B. H. DePriest has made the follow ing corrections of the story regarding his "suit in the TJ. S.

The case mentioned by you was on the part of the state a criminal prosecution, and never was tried, as the defendant made the plea, and the Catawba recorder ruled, that he h not been, given five days' notice before t!e action started. He made this plea although he had in his article 'defied me to take the matter into the courts The case could have been tried subse quently in any other county where that paper circulated, but I deemed it best to get my vindication in a civil court "An honest newspaper'' is always willing either to retract or to prove its charges true.

Many efforts are made to estimate in dollars and cents the cost of disease to individuals and the community, but it is probable that all the-estlmates fall short of the true figure. The enormity of the burden of disease, however, is being more fully realized, and it is gratifying to note the increasing activ ities of individuals and communities to avoid it. By far one of the most useful phases "of health work Is the medical inspection of school children and their instruction in health and hygiene. In W. Marshall Bridges LAWYER, Holmes Building.
