PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY fptitrnoti MT. VERNON, ESTABLISHFD 1887 VOLUME XXXI ROCKCASTLE COUNTY, KY., FRIDAY, AUGUST 16 1918 NUMBER 47 A BOX FROM HOME THE SUPREME SACRIFICE Ves G. Brown, a son of Daa Brown, was a young farmer, thirty years of age, and lived in the Quail section. He answered the call for Over Sea Service under the Selective Draft, and last week answered the last call, and made the Supreme Sacrifice on the west, em front, giving his all to protect our County, our Home, and our Flag. This is as much a loss of one of our citizens as if a Hun tramp had taken possession of a part of the fielii in which Mr. Brown was working and when he tried to drive him away, the Hun had shot and killed him. Had this happened in our country, we would all have been up in arms to avenge the blood of our neighbor and friend. Distance should make no difference, except to intensify our feelings of resentment.

Fruit marmalades, butters and jellies should ba used to take the place of the ordinary sweetening at a meal and not as accessories to it. Fruits may be preserved without sugar.

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 hi 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.

England today has a sugar ration nf two pounds per month per person. In France the ration Is a pound and a half and in Italy It Is one pound a month. And the prices in allied countries are from two to three times as high as In America. If you j;o to a hotel In England or France those 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 he 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 will be able to actually buy sugar. To bay it, one must first find It Italy Has "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 Germans have virtually gone out of the export 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 is being held at 7 cents, h i .jennany sugar is one of the scarce irtlcles on every menu whether In MORE THAN A SUGGESTION.

In any event, the wirld war has pointed to many defects which need remedies. It is a wholesome task to apply the c jntnbutions of the past when the opportunity arises. "The conservation of health and the development of physical fit nes are a soldier's first duty.
