The cost of living is gettng intoler
able. Upon even the flimsiest excuse
prices of foodstuffs are raised, and if
no excuse exists they are boosed on
general principles. Millions of peo
ple who are dependent upon their
daily labor find it almost impossible
to keep body and soul together. In
many hundreds of thousands of
cases their vitality is slipping away
from pure lack of sufficient nourish
ment. Yet in the very face of this
the insatiable food speculators and
profit grabbers are turning the screws
Lighter every day. There appears to be
but one way in which this sucking
of tlie blood of humanity can be stop
ped, and that is for the government
to take prompt action and fix a maxi
mum price at which every article of
food is to be sold, and in fixing the
maximum the price should be first
scheduled down to normal. The fact
that a scarcity in foodstuffs exists
should not be accepted as an excuse
for allowing prices to remain at their
present outrageous figures. And tiie
same action should be taken with
reference to every article of necessity
that we use.
The growing of potatoes as an
emergency crop to meet the impending
food shortage is discussed in Emer
gency llulletin No. 5, just issued by
the Extension Service of the College
of Agriculture. Increased production
of potatoes is recommended because
of their importance as a human food,
tiie present shortage of food, and the
relative ease of production. The bul
letin contains full instructions as to
preparation of soil, choice of varie
ties, selection of seed, planting and
spacing, cultivation, and control of
d eases It will be sent fre3 upon ap
plication to the Extension Service,

BEANS AS A WAR CROP.
Because of their great value as hu
man food, beans are recommended
as a “war crop” to replant winterk '
'ed crops in Nebraska. According to a
new bulletin issued by the Agricul
tural Extension Service, they are not
only rich in protein but peculiarly
nourishing. The climate and soil of
Nebraska, especially of the western1
part of the state, are favorable to!
bean production. Full particulars as to
how to grow beans are contained in
Emergency Bulletin No. 4. “Bean Cul
ture.” recently issued by the Exten- j
-ion Service of the College of Agri- j
culture. University Farm, Lincoln. It
will be sent free upon request.
POULTRY FOR EACH FAMILY.
Three hens set now with 15 eggs !
each will make the average family I
independent of the cold storage egg
merchant next winter, according to
College of Agriculture poultry hus
bandry specialists. These eggs will
hatch, on au average, 25 live chicks
of which 12 will he pullets. With pro
per care, they will lay 4 dozen eggs
weekly, the amount consumed by
the average family. Two piano boxes
placed back to back make a poultry
house large enough to winter 12 pul
lets. Such boxes cost $2 each. The
cost of feed required to raise the ]
pullets will l>e offset by the income j
from the sale of cockerels. Moreover,
table scraps (nearly a million dol
lars worth of which is wasted annual
ly in the United States) can be util

Why all this Hollering About
A year ago it took 54 bushels corn to pay for 10M
Shingles while now the same amount of corn will pay for
the same Shingles and
500 feet common lumber
5 Gallons Paint
20 Pounds Nails
20 Rods 26 in Hog Fence
Last year it took a 400 pound hog to pay for 200 best
posts while now the same hog will pay for the same posts
3 Reels Barb Wire
15 Pounds Staples
Last year it took 60 bushels wheat to pay for 2000
feet common lumber while now for the same amount of
wheat we will build you one of our Special Garages com
plete with cement floor, furnish all lumber, windows,
doors, hardwTare. and paint and we will even pay the car
penter and on top of all that make you a present of 2
screen doors and 2 tons of our best coal.
Why should we apologize for our prices?
They are lower in proportion than ever before.
We can save you money.

A PIE COUNTER STAMPEDE.
The eagerness with which small na
tions are seeking to line up against
Germany and at the same time to ap
ply to the United States for a loan
from the billions which we have ap
propriated for the assistance of our
allies, indicates that America is look
ed upon as the pie counter of the
world. Under the freedom which has
been granted to the administration
in the distribution of these billions,
there is some danger that Mr. McAdoo
may be overwhelmed in the onslaught
of would-be borrowers. He can find
ample reinforcement in a policy of pru
dence if he will persuade his distin
guished father-in-law to assent to the
formation of the proposed joint com
mittee on the conduct of the war.. That
committee can take a lot of responsi
bility in the determination of policies
afferting our war expenditures as well
as in other helpful directions.
AN INEFFECTIVE INQUIRY.
The Trade Commission's report on
the gasoline problem produced its
main effect in the stock market, where
oil securities went off several points.
It has not affected the price of gas.
Nor, it is safe to conclude, will the
adoption of any of the legislative
anodynes which the commission recom
mends. Among the laws which the
commission suggests there is a strange
omission, namely, an enactment to re
peal or otherwise render nugatory the
law of supply and demand. That is
what governs the price of gasoline;
and the uses of war and the needs of
peace both require gas. Col. ltoose
velt's suggestion to cut out joy-riding
as a means of conserving the supply
of gas has more real meat in it and
cost the country nothing. Whereas the
Trtfde Commission’s inquiry took a
lot of real money.
HANDLING THE “GRASS WIDOW”
One way of increasing the output of i
the hog lot is the raising of two lit- j
ters of pigs a year from each sow. I
From early June to early August many
“grass widows,” as sowrs which have
produced a spring litter are called, are !
sent to market. The most economical
use of these animals is to make them
produce a fall litter. These sows can
be bred as soon as they have weaned
their spring pigs. Fall pigs are ready
for market when there is" a scarcity
of markeable hogs and when the price
is relatively high. They may be fed
for spring market or may be finished
on summer pasture.
SKILLED MEN WANTED.
. Washington, May S—The marine
corps is especially in need of techni
cal men—men experienced in electri
cal, mechanical, civil and automobile
engineering, and aviation, and is of
fering special inducements to men
of this kind who want to be “first to
fight,” according to an announcement
made from their headquarters today.
To insure a completely uniform and
trained body all marine corps re
cruits must first undergo preliminary
military and naval training, but upon
its completion those so desiring are
available for positions in which they
are best fitted.
GIVING AWAY A FORD.
The Journal publications, The Ne
braska State Journal, Lincoln Daily
News and Nebraska Ruralist (semi
monthly rural magazine) are giving
away another Ford, a touring car this
time, to the agent turning in the most

and June 30. Anyone is eligible to be
come an agent and a commission is
paid on all subscriptions turned in.
As an additional incentive a prize
of $25 cash is offered the a^ent turn
ing in the most business in the con
test before May 31.
WHY SUFFER SO?
Why suffer from a bad hack, from
sharp, shooting twinges, headaches,
dizziness and distressing urinary ills?
Loup City people recommend Doan’s
Kidney Pills. Could you ask for
stronger proof of merit?
Mrs. W. H. Hughes, Loup City,
says: “I have been a sufferer from
kidney and bladder trouble off and
on for many years. The kidney se
cretions were retarded and at times,
my hands and feet swelled up. I was
dizzy and everything turned black
before me. I read such good accounts
about Doan’s Kidney Pills helping
others, that I decided to try them,
procuring them at Swanson's Drug
Store. They helped me wonderfully.”

years. We are now assured that the
record is going to he improved this

aged to he able to announce that an
other man and wife will give $50 to
the benevolences. The W. H. M. S. will
make a much better showing this year
The Sunday school has already given
$70 to missions. We are praying for an
other $100 gift and another of $50 and
at least four more of $25 each. Who
also will abound in the grace of liber
ality? We need these gifts now for Ne
braska Wesleyan and our Methodist
Hospital at Omaha. We have full con
fidence that Loup City Methodists will
do*their full duty toward these great
enterprises of the kingdom of God.
