. the Price It Fifty Per Cent .
Less Than Here.
POTATOES 45 PER PECK
By A. R. CROH.
Pity the ptople in "starving" Eng
land. Food is so scarce that the London
bakers have raised the price of bread
to 6 cents a pound!
And we are paying 50 per cent
fndre than that for brea( right here
jn Omaha and nearly everywhere else
in this republic.
An article in the London Times of
March7,24 tells about the increase in
the price of bread. "This is just
double the before-the-war price," says
tlit article. i
And beans are 15 -cnits i pound!
The cost l7'i cents here.
Many Englishmen are pursuing
ttieic. favorite sport these days of;
writing to the limes, the subjert
agitajing them 'most being the re
striction of the -use of sugar. Yet the
amount allowe'd them is liberal.
Potatoes Cheaper Than Here,.
Some'fcthef food prices quoted in
the iSTimes oh March 26 are these:
Potatoes, 45 cents a peck; Oregon
apples, $375 a bof dates, 2'A cents
a pound; California navel oranges, $7
a box; turkeys, 25 cents to 35 cents
a pound: chickens,' 75 cents to $1
eachjjucks, 85 cents to $1.25 each;
rabbits, 25 cents to 50 cents each;
bacon, 35 Cents a pound; lard, 25 cents
pound;. American cheese, 40 cents
pounds -butter, 50 Cents i poundf
nee, 6 cents a pound.
