Edna Ewing, now a girl on the "line."
The picture will be shown to the

MILLERS SHORT ON GOOD WHEAT.
Supply of No. 1 Hard All In the Hands
Chicago, Jan. 31. Joseph Leiter,
according to experts in tho trade, is
forcing thousands of people to eat
darker bread than has ever been seen
since the introduction of the patent
roller process of making Hour. His
control of 15,000,000 bushels of contract
wheat means, they sny, that tho mill
ers are grinding the best grain they
can procure since the supply of choice
No. 1 hard spring wheat has become
exhausted and that beit is not very
good. Grocers and retail Hour dealers
have been rsceiving complaints re
garding breadstuffs from cooks and
housewives who have sent back sacks
and barrels of flour marked with tho
fancy brands and bought at highest
prices. But the loudest protests have
been raised by the restaui ateurs and
bakers who buy flour at wholesale.
Commissioner of Health Reynolds
today sent out men to gather samples
of Hour from leading dealers. This
flour will bo analyzed and definite in
formation given to tho public as to
the nature of the adulterations which
are said to havo resulted in a general
prevalence of dark bread. Commis
sioner Reynolds said: "If corn has
been used to adulterate the wheat,
there need be no alarm so far as
health is concerned. Corn is an emi
nently healthy food and if wheat
should ever bo cornered so as to pre
clude its purchase by the common
people,corn could easily fill tho pla-je."
It is announced that the farmers of
Macon county will have an exhibit of
corn, in all its shapes and styles at
their annual fai mers'institute and that
they will endeavor to start acampaign
in advocacy of the healthful corn.
The story that the wheat corner, con
trolled by Joseph Leiter, is causing
people to eat darker bread, caused
the Napoleon of the Board of Trade
"I see," said he, "that they say my
wheat corner compels the millers to
grind any sort of old stuff for their
customers. If they are grinding
poorer stuff in their mills, why don't
they reduce the price. I have not
hear d of any reduction in the price of
wheat flour. If the millers want good
flour they can come and g3t the best
there is at market prices The prices
are now advanced tremendously you
"Yes, but note this, that the millers
are charging proportionately ad
vanced prices for tho mixed stuff they
are grinding. That is to sny they ask
just as much for their dark, adulter
ated flour as if it were the purest
brand. Consequently, if anybody is
getting the worst of it it is the public."
