So far As statistics show the largest sugar eating nation in the world that is canadians consume More sugar per i capita than the people of any other country. And for this reason the world s Supply of sugar which has been seriously depleted As a result of the War should be a subject of deep concern to this country and particularly to those districts where the beet j sugar Industry is already established. Canada produces yearly about tons of sugar from sugar beets and she imports yearly tons of All kinds of sugar. Her exports of sugar Are infinite Skoal and our average consumption therefore figures out to be Over d7 pounds per head per year. The War has practically eliminated from the sugar markets the world s Supply of meet sugar which amounted last year to tons. All but 645.000 tons of beet sugar which Are produced in the United states was produced in Europe by the countries which Are now at War. Germany s output amounted to 2.725.000 tons Russia s to tons Austria s to tons. France s to s00.000 tons and that of Belgium to tons. Great Britain s yearly Supply of sugar was last year terns or so.5 pounds per head and the most of it came from Europe particularly from Germany. Great Britain is now com Peting with the United states for the Cane sugar Supply which amounted to tons in 1913 and 19j.4 the Cane sugar comes from Asia and am Erica and the indies.
