Postville Herald (Newspaper) - December 13, 1918, Postville, Iowa Nobody Ever saw an ugly bed Cross nurse. The boys of Twenty one Are now Tho men of the Hiir. Coal is no longer it la earnestly requested. Bread is the staff of life but very few americans need a staff. When Haig found himself against the will he got his Buck up. Thus far there has been no suggestion of a chewing gum ration. Tho Able bodied Man who is out of work year is indeed a slacker. Golfers deny thai Golf is either a sport or an occupation it is a career. The Telegraph messenger girls will get there just Tho same if not sooner. Sacrifice to ensure Allied loaf greatest single food achievement. Why sufficient Supply now. All the nations will be Able to return to their Normal Supply of White bread. Harris & Schutte. ind Kin Bolmcren state License no. 791. Orders taken for Flowers of All kinds or. H. D. Cole dentist office Over mrs. Koevenig s restaurant a. Folsom d. . Veterinarian overshadowing All other accomplishments of the american people under the lend ship of food administration is the history of wheat exports in the past sixteen months. Our wheat Export program proved conclusively to the world that America was in War from Start to finish and willing to make any sacral acc that will hasten Victory or maintain the health and strength of people overseas upon j whom rested the heaviest weight of our War. Now that pressure on Ocean tonnage is cased by the slopping of Large movements of troops to Europe we May relax our efforts to save wheat. The accumulated surplus in Australia argon Tine and other hitherto inaccessible markets will become available and probably no More than our Normal surplus will have to leave country. We in America and the nations which have won the world for Freedom will be enabled to eat their Normal wheat loaf at the common table of the Peoples of democracy. We entered the past crop year with a wheat Supply which gave us Only 20,000,000 bushels available for Export when the crop year ended to had sent 141,000,000 bushels of wheat to Europe. The american people had saved out of their Normal consumption 121,000,000 bushels. A Survey of Export figures shows a target that swings is not hard to hit it is a strange thing that the Novice will almost invariably try to hit the bulls Eye of a swinging target when it is at the Center or in the lowest position. This is decidedly the incorrect method and the expert knows better. He knows that the time to shoot is at the end of the swing. In fact any one will arrive ultimately at the same conclusion for a Little thought will convince him that a target is the More easily hit when at a standstill or at Tho end of a vibration. The moving target As a Rule has the largest bulls Eye and is often one of the easiest to strike if you happen to know How. Simply aim at the Point where the Center of the target stops and wait till it returns. Then Bengl your Friend gives one of those sickly smiles and pays for the shots. Then he wastes another Quarter trying to do something that he does not compre i Hend. Simple if you Only know 0 9 can Stop annoying habit How habitual scorer May cure himself of practice that is injurious to the health. Or. Harvey w. Wiley who conducts a department of foods sanitation and health in Good housekeeping inquiry from readers and in doing so lays himself open to surprising requests. A woman recently asked the doctor Why her sister snored and How she could be cured of the unpleasant accomplishment. Doctor Wiley gave the following explanation of snoring snoring takes place Only when the Mouth is open and almost always when one is sleeping on his Back. Adenoids or other obstructions to the nasal passages Are frequent causes of snoring. Usually snoring is prevented by sleeping on one s Side. Mechanically an elastic band under the Chin and Over the top of the head will keep the Mouth closed. The annoyance which is caused to other people by snoring is by no j t.i.,i i a Means the worst feature of Trou general practice in state and 1 Ederial j aude t0 Sll Pess than 4,500,000 barrels j ble the nor that enters t e jungs Ai All Calls promptly answered leave Calls at Louis Schutte s store _ or at residence opposite Turner Hall j that the conservation 0f fl0,r brought about by the we gutless meals wheat loss Days substitution in our kitchens and bakeries Etui filed us to Send to our armies and the allies 83,000,000 barrels of White flour wheat figured As flour.

By october 10, 1918, to had already shipped 03,900,305 bushels since july 1. Absolutely the Only limitation upon our wheat exports since the latest Harvest has been the Scarcity of Ocean tonnage. If exports continue at the present rate by july 1 of next year to will have sent More than 237,500,-000 bushels to Europe.

In Southeast Papua they have a so Long that acutely conveys the idea of sadness at parting. It is Eoo of Eoo of and when half a Hundred Are chanting it the Long drawn out of is one of the Saddest sounds imaginable. Milk costs More these Days and is Worth More. Every cent added to its value makes it that much More important to properly care for and protect it. It is both financial and criminal negligence to lose a single quart through improper care. Likewise every cent Cut from its Cost is that much More Money made. A Good milk House As a sanitary and time saving convenience is a Good investment. It costs Little.
