MISDIRECTED EFFORT ''" Those consumers who are wailing about the high cost of spuds, may recall that the legal talent of the administration was hot after hoarders and profiteers last fall and deterred the usual buying from farmer  for storage.. While the result might not .be different and those farmers who were forced to hold their, potatoes :are the gainers, the large percentage which was lost by rot and freeziitg is responsible for the unusual short- ge that exists this season.' The shortage of perishable and seasonable food stuffs makes it po;ssible to teady prices and spread the product ,over the entire year. GOD SAVE THE COUNTRY A. Mitchell Palmer, President Wil- on's attorney general and chief "trust buster," who also considers himself democratic presidential tim- ber has got his gait.

All the demo- cratic efforts to hit the h. c. o. 1. seem t 9 be equally peurile.

Where the houses join there can be no windows in the ends. Therefore the last house as no end windows. Nothing can be more dreary than such a blank wall. Let me em- phasize the fact that I am describing, not the slums, but the kind of a street that yon or I would live in in fact the one I do live in. Only the: wealthy can afford separate houses set in their own grounds. Few Modern Houses. The house in which we live is re- p tired to be over a hundred years old, and I am willing to believe it. Nat- urally, many conveniences were over- loked when it was built. It is on three  floors, and there is no running water except on the first, and no hot water anywhere. The landlady car- ries our jug of hot water (none too much) up to the third floor every morning. Even in mueh more modern houses,, central heating plants are rare. Ev- ery house is constructed as a matter bf course with a fireplace in every room, and it is the custom to have a separate flue for every fireplace. One can tell at a glance the number of rooms in a house by counting the chimney pots. In a schoolroom or a grocery store the only heat will be supplied by a fireplace, which looks strangely out of place in such sur- roundings. Obviously, such a system is wasteful of fuel, even though most eople keep only one warm room. oreover, fireplaces cannot produce the uniform, sustained heat of fur- naces. We do notice, however, that we have been more free from colds this winter than ever before in our livs, perhaps because there is no marked difference between the tem- eerature indoors and out. Here, at ast, there seems to be some advan- tage on the side of the old methodS. Besides, a good collection of antique chimney pots ives an air of pic- turesque placid;ty ,to a house which is hard to a'chieve in any other, way. J. H. BINNS. to order by chalrmam All present.
