Cuban Minister Says Supply is
Constantly Diminishing and
Crop Prospects Are
Paris, June 8. The actual food, con

the prospective poor crops for 1917
because of the shortage of labor, th
uerman viewpoint concerning peace
and the attitude toward revolution
coupled with a prediction that th
German public may lose confidence
in the infallibility of its leaders, are
presented by Dr. Aristides Aguero,
LuDan residenHnimster in Berl
since the beginning of the war, but
who now is returning home, in to
nights Journal Des Debats.
Dr, Aguero, who has spent much
time in Germany, begins his account
with a resume of the actual food
allowance in Berlin today.
Hotel Keepers in Jail.
"Here," says Dr. Aguero, "are the
most recent figures: Sixty-five
grammes of meat, fifty of bread and
two or three potatoes, if on can get
them. Even the dearest restaurants
are forbidden to offer more than on
meat and there is no hope of the
evading this rule.
Dr. Aguero then cites the interna
nationally known restaurant Kewpm

No Eggs or Milk.

existent, as also is milk. Vegetables
are excessively scarce and rare food
are not to be had by persons of tiny
purses. A small meal costs from ij
to 14 marks in the restaurants. Sixtv
five grammes of meat cost 4Vi marks.
an order of vegetables 2'j marks' and
soup 'A mark. .
Dr. Aguero then passes to choco
late, coffee and tea, which he also
characterizes as nonexistent. He
says fruits are as rare as vegetable!
because the supplies have been
requisitioned by the government for
"For every element of t'e civil
population regardless of the social
class to which it belongs," Dr Aug-
ero continues the daily ration at the
time of my departure consisted of
250 grammes of bread, thirty-five
grammes of meat, 350 grammes of
potatoes, ten grammes of fat and eight
grammes ot sugar. Une eeer monthly
was allowed and one portion of war
marmalade monthly, ut this quantity
one received less rather than more.
Little children and invalids, the latter
on presentation of medical certifi
cates, can get milk when there is any.
Live Stock Killed.
"Regardine live stock in Germanv.
Dr. Aguero says, "the 11,000,000 milch
cows on hand before the war have de
creased to 6,000,000. These are suffer
ing from lack of food, while the aver
age milk given bv ' each cow has
dropped from seven and eight litres
to tour and rive litres.
"Germany before the war." savs Dr,
Augero, "had 27,000,000 head of cattle,
10 per cent of which were sacrificed
in November, 1916, and the number
has since fallen to 19,000. Thirty per
cent ot tne :3,uuu,uuu swine have been
slaughtered since the war. but the
number of swine has risen to 20,000,-
000 on account of the prolific qualities
of the animal. The 5,000,000 sheep
have disappeared entirely, while the
4,500,000 goats have, fallen off to
Coming Crop is Small.
"The coming croo." savs Dr. Aug-
ero, "willbe mediocre, because all la
bor has to be performed by, women
and French and Russian nrisoners.
The soil also is suffering from a lack
of real nitrates, the nitrates artifically
produced Deing tar interior to the
previously imported product. He es
timates that production has retro
graded at least 27 ner cent oer hectare.
"Having recounted these facts about
German situation, the Cuban minister
continues to make it plain that priva
Hons have not as yet affected the Ger
man morale, and he warns against
counting upon such a contingency.
"The German he says, accepts and
consents to submit to discipline which
the La'.in would not think of enduring.
Will Fight to Last Ditch.
"The German," the writer contin
ues, "must fight to the last ditch
and the last man, because he believes
this war is a matter of life or death
for Germany. He believes that if
he is vanquishej Germany will be di
vided among France, Russia. Bel
guim, Italy and Denmark and that
all remaining will be small portions
of Prussia, with Berlin as the capi
tal. "This idea has been propagated
from top to bottom in all classes of
society by means of the press, in pub
lic conferences, in schools, universi
ties, lyceums and moving pictures.
This opinion has been driven into the
head of every German citizen and
nothing can eradicate it.
Still Believe in Leaders.
"The German people are an obe
dient and disciplined people. But do
not deceive yourselves, do not fall
into the too common error. He is not
obedient and disciplined from the
spirit of servitude, but from his con-
To Keep the Face
Fresh, Clear, Youthful
More important than the eosraetle care
of the complexion is its physical care. To
keep the face clear, fresh, youthful, there's
nothing- better than ordinary niereollzed wax.
It absorbs the soiled or faded, worn-out skin
particles. Cosmetics simply add unwhole
eomeness to the complexion. That's the dif
ference. By all means, acquire the mercolized
wax habit. It's so easy to get an ounce of
the wax at the drug-gist's, apply at night
like cold cream and wash it off next morning.
There's no detention indoors, the old skin
coming off so gradually no one suspects
you're using anything. When in a week or
two the alluringly youthful, roselike under
akin is fully in view well, you won't want,
or need make-up complexion after that. It
must be apparent that this process means
complete riddance of ail cutaneous blemishes,
like freckles, pimples, blotches attd black
heads. For a wrinkled, loose or saggy skin, a face
bath made by dissolving an ounce of pow
dered eaxolite in a half pint witch hsiel, sur
passes massage cream and everything else
for results. Its action Is instsntaneous and
perfectly harmless. It improves facial contour

Airmen Reach France
Washington, June 8. One hun
dred American aviators from the
navy flying corps have arrived
safely in France for any duty that
may present itself, according to a
statement issued today by Secre
tary Daniels. They are the first of
the American fighting forces to
fidence and faith in the capacity
ana superiority ot his, chiefs.
That is the prestige of the Prussian
bureaucracy and it is the same for
all Germany. In Bavaria and Saxony
the mentality is the same, but I do
not jay that this is the immutable
state of mini the day when the Ger
man people become convinced of the
lack of skill of its leaders. When it
perceives the fallability of imperial
leadership it will not support any
. Senor Aguero then portrays the
sublime confidence placed by all Ger
many in the submarine warfare and
its certain effect in the minds of the
Germans in starving out England and
