A few months ago potatoes were almost worth their weight in platinum. With their rise in price came a new appreciation of their intrinsic value. We began to look upon the homely vegetable as a luxary. Every tuber was treasured. It was pared thin, or baked and the skin eaten, or boil ed in the jacket and that garment removed with scrupulous cere many. How precious every dish of potatoes looked, whether mash ed, boiled, baked or fried. And how good they tasted. We have never realized how delicious mere potatoes co be. And now we're in danger of slipping back into our old indif ference again. We're coming to feel once more that potatoes are unimportant we can take them or let them alone. We can eat other things just as well. We can peel them as carelessly as we please. We can let them rot, if we like. It doesn't matter much. Because once more potatoes are plentiful, and coming to be cheap. We have been blessed with a huge crop. Reliable estimates place the country's total yield at more than 467,000,000 bushels. Last year it was only 285,000,000, and the year before, 360,090,000. We have about a bushel more than usual for every man, woman and child. Wherefore we should eat pota toes, not scorn them. There is no more wholesome food. And this plenty comes providentially at a time when we want to save all the non-perishable foodstuffs we can to keep our European al lies and comrades from starving. This bountiful crop, wisely used, will make our cereals go much farther, without imposing any privation on us. Remember how good those po tatoes were last spring. Fill up the empty bins, and have them on the table the potates not the bins with unfailing regularity. Arizona Gazette.
