Drying is a means of preserving (without sugar) apples, cherries, strawberries and black caps. When ready to use they may have added the needed sugar in the form of a syrup. When sugar is more plentiful fruit juices may be made into jellies or may be used as fruit juices with or without sugar, as beverages, fruit gelatins and frozen desserts. Fresh fruits supply the place of sugar in the diet. They should be used freely. Desserts where sugar is scarce may be made of gelatins, junkets, custards, puddings and cakes. heavy syrup.

Sugar may be saved by the use of raisins, dates, figs, dried pears and fruit pastes used on the breakfast cereals. Fruit marmala'des, butters and jellies should be used to take the place of the ordinary sweetening at a meal and not as accessories to it. Fruits may be preserved without sugar.

YATES Formerly classed as a luxury, sugar a war time essential. The fair and just division of this essential is In the hands of the various Allied food controllers. The United States Food Administration has asked this nation to observe a voluntary sugar ration of two pounds per person a month. In the other countries at war with Germany sugar is one of the scarce articles on every menu whether In the households of both rich and poor, or in the hotels. England today has a sugar ration of two pounds per month per person. In France the ration is a pound and a half and in Italy It is one pound a mouth. And the prices in allied countries are from two to three times as high as in America. If you go to a hotel In England or France these days and order tea or coffee they serve absolutely no sugar with It If you want sugar you must bring It with you. In England It is allowable to use of an ounce of sugar In the preparation of each luncheon. In France many persons carry little saccharine tablets about with them for . use in hotels and In England' rich and poor must take their sugar with them If they wish to have sweetened tea while visiting friends. Before the war started France had 625,000 acres devoted to sugar production. By 1917 the French sugar acreage had decreased to 180,000 acres. Today the French man or woman with a sugar card has no assurance whatever that he or she wiU be able to actually buy sugar. To buy It, one must first find it. Italy Ha3 "State Sugar." Especially drastic regulations govern the use of sugar In Italy. Its manufacture, distribution and sale are closely controlled, and In part actually taken over by the state. Saccharine Is permitted to be sold and used as a substitute for sugar and the government manufactures a mixture of saccharine and sugar called "State Sugar," which Is largely used. German Sugar Ration Adequate. Germany, before the war, produced a great surplus of sugar and exported large quantities. Today the Gerrjpns have virtually gone out of the expert business, but have plenty of cheap sugar for home use. Wholesale prices prevalent in the Allied nations, according to Information received by the United States Food Administration are as follows: England, 10 cents a pound; France, 12 cents ; Italy, 26 cents. While these high prices are being paid abroad the American wholesale price la being held at 7& cents. is now one-seven- th pounds & month per person Is equitable when compared with the sugar ration enforced by rigid governmental order in England, France and Italy, nations with which we are sharing sugar. Each Allied nation in the matter oi sugar consumption Is sharing on nearest possible equal terms the hardsUps imposed by greatly altered conditions in the world sugar situation.

Enemy Crops Are a Failure Germany Is in a Very Bad Plight for Grain, Fruit and Vegetables This Year. Nature is conducting a "starvation drive" against Germany and Austria. While the crops of America and her allies promise this year to break all records for size, those of Germany and her allies will be smaller than at any time since the war began. Widespread drought enveloped the central empires during April, May and June, which, combined with intense heat and an'nnseasonable frost during the first five days of June, stopped the development of all the vegetables and roots so urgently needed by the Teutons. d The frost destroyed of the potato crop, especially in the northern part of the country. Peas and beans also were seriously damaged. At the same time the heat and drought increased the ravages of all kinds of pestiferous insects, so the crop of apples and peas will be insignificant. It also delayed the wheat crop and with the failure of Boumania and the Ukraine to deliver the expected wheat, Germany is In a bad way. On the other hand, America's wheat crop will exceed 800,000,000 bushels, mark predicted earlier In the season. The If it doesn't reach the billion-bushcorn crop forecasted will be 3,160,000,000 bushels, breaking all records. The oat crop also will be a bumper one. Canadian crop estimates differ, owing to the fact that the wheat country Is so vast and enjoys varying weather, but Indications are for a record crop for our northern ally also. English crop experts report favorably on the prospects for this year, and good crops in the uninvaded portions of France, with an average yield In Holland and Spain, are predicted. Italy, it is anticipated, will produce 164,000,000 bushels of wheat as against 140,000,000 bushels last year. An abundance of wheat is promised from India, Australia and Argentina. The question with those countries is one of tonnage and not of the size of the crop. It doesn't look, therefore, as If the allied peoples will starve this year. The restrictions on the use of flour probably will be modified to a great degree by the food administration. But the Germans will tighten their belts another notch and wait hungrily for the "victorious peace" their rulers have promised them. one-thirel Mil liiEJN T ACT DIGESTION WAS If !M& Savs 65 year Old Kentucky Lady, Who Tells How She WaB After a Few Dosas of Black-Draught Stocks Will Be Short Until Beginning of New-YeaRation May Be Enlarged Then.

The situation which the United States faces in its efforts to maintain a fair distribution of sugar to the Allied world Is as follows : j and for the civilians of those nations. By New Year's the world sugar situation will be relieved somewhat by the new crop. Cuban sugar of this year's crop will be arriving in this country. Every available sugar source will be drawn on by the Food Administration during the next winter months to maintain sufficient stocks here to keep up our national sugar supply. During October the first American beet sugar will arrive in the markets. By the middle of November some of our Louisiana cane crop will be available. All of this sugar and more may be needed to keep this nation supplied on a reduced ration and to safeguard the Allied sugar ration from still further Sugar supplies throughout the country, in homes, stores, factories and bakeries are at a low ebb. Wc must make increased sugar shipments to the Allies. Production of American beet and Louisiana cane crops have been disappointing. Porto Rico crops have been curtailed. Immense sugar stocks in Java cannot be reached on account of the shipping shortage; ships are needed for troop movements and munitions. Army and Navy sugar requirements have increased as well as those from the Allies. Most industries using sugar have had their allotment reduced by some will receive no sugar. Households should make every effort to preserve the fruit crop without sugar, or with small amounts of sugar.

France must Import sugar today, most of it from this side of the ocean, because the largest portion of French sugar beet land is in German hands. As a result, the French people have been placed on a sugar ration of about IS pounds a year for domestic use; a pound and a half a month. This photograph 'hows how the German troops destroyed French sugar mills. Thanks tq the French rationing system the annual consumption has been cut to 600,000 tons, according to reports reaching the United States Food Administration. Before the war France had an average sugar crop of about 750,000 tons of sugar and had some left over for export. lavMigiigarSavesShippiig i "V vc i A I 1 '- - &'"'. iv f f Vx3Wk 5 .fr?7k .' isz Jiw-- wj g.

Keep this open at all times, except in very stormy weather and during severe cold spells. Provision should be made for the largest amount of sunlight possible in the house, as this is one of the best means of preventing disease. Windows should be so constructed that the sun can touch every part of the floor some time during the day. It is essential that the house be kept dry. See that there are no places in the roof or sides where rain can beat in. Also, it is desirable to have a concrete floor, laid on a bed of 10 to 12 inches of cinders. A dust box, 3 by 4 feet and 1 feet deep, containing fine dust, should be placed in each house.
