WE WILL HAVE BREAD.
There will bo no shortage of wheat.
Let us all breathe easier.
There bus been a widespread belief
that our wheat supply would be ex-
hausted because of lleavy exporta-
tion before the new crop comes In.
Many prominent men newspapers
and even members of Congress have
irfvnrnln.l (ill tit 1 1 II IP (iff all wllCUt OX
ports that we may have enough for
These fears were unfounded and
a rpnort. lust Issued by the Depart
mcnt of Agriculture sets at rtst all
fears aud shows there will not only
e enough for the I'nlted States but
for export also. The report is so
rnnuiletft and contains such valuable
Information on the wheut supply of
the I'nlted Stales and of the who!
world that we herewith reproduce I
for the Information and benefit of th
readers of The Kagle:
"The surplus of wheat above At
mestlc needs on hand February 1 th
statement said would permit the e
portatlon of nearly l.Onn.nin) bushel

til the new crop Is available. More-
over there were larger supplies of
corn and other grains meat animals
dairy products potatoes and fruit at
the opening of lfll." than for many
"Incidentally It was pointed out
that the average price of meat ani-
mals was 7 per cent lower In January
than a year ago; butter 2 per cent:
potatoes 35 per cent; apples 37 per
cent and the price of chickens slight-
"The 1914 wheat crop of the t'nlted
States was estimated to be S91.ono.nnn
bushels.' the statement said. The
estimated surplus enrrled over from
the 1913 crop was about "fi.ftnft.nnn
bushels making a total available sup-
ply of 9f.7.nnn.nno bushels. As to the
normal annual per capita consump-
tion of wheat in the t'nlted State--la
about 5.3 bushels r20nnnnno should
meet our normal domestic require-
ments for food; 9n.Onnonn bushels are
required annually for seeding. There-
. fore cio.non.onn bushels should sup-
ply the normal domestic demnnd. This
would leave a surplus of 3."7.nnnnnn
"Of the surplus about 2innno.nnn
bushels were exported hy January
so. This left ii7.nnn.nnn bushels or
in.Ono.nnn bushels more than our an-
mini export for the past five years
for export between February 1 and
the appearance of the new crop or
for carrying over Into the next crop
"The new American crop will hegln
to appear before July. The Argentine
crop is now coming on the market
it Is estimated that from that source
there will be available lOnn.non.OOO
bushels. A surplus of 75nnn.nnn
bushels or more from India will be
available In May and June. The in-
crease in the fall sown wheat acre-
age of the I'nlted States in 1911 wai
11.1 per cent or over 4nnn.nno acres."
The statement added that the avre-
age of winter wheat sown In Den-
mark. Italy Switzerland I'nlted King-
dom. I'nlted Stntes India and Canada
shows an increase of from 3 to 33 per
"fint suppose a shortage of wheat
should develop In the next three
months what would be the situa-
tion?" the department asked.
"There la a great surplus In other
food crops In the t'nlted States a
number of which can be used as suh-
stltutes. The most Important com-
peting products are corn and potatoes.
Normally only about 3 per cent of the
corn crop Is consumed os food. The
potato production in the Vnlted
States averages 3.8 bushels per capita.
This year the available supply Is 4.1
"It would seem that the t'nlted
States Is not likely to bo threatened
with a shortage of foodstuffs."

Simmons' Liver Regulator Is not in
it compared to the present Legisla-
ture. They propose to regulate every-
thing from the sun moon and stars
to the aurora borealls and the day of
Judgment. They propose to take the
management of municipally owned
utilities out of tho hands of the city
and turn it over to a State commis-
sion; they propose to tell a fellow
how he shall send his children to
school how he shall rent his land
how often he shall pay his employes
etc. It now looks like every citizen
will have to get him a printed legisla-
tive program to go by from the time
he pulls on his socks in the morning
until he washes his feet before re-
tiring at night.
Senator Ilalley of DeWItt County
plugged thebull's eye while discuss-
ing the question of piling up and mul
tiplying needless official and com
missions In Texas. He said he was
tired of seeing "ponds created for
lame ducks to swim In." That Is the
situation In a nutshell. A job of some
kind must be created for every old
broken-down politician that falls out-
side the breastworks has been the
practice in Texas long enough.
It is conceited by the pockethook
handlers of the country that the sea-
son of the year known as "between
seasons" Is the most pleasant of them
all. It Is too late to buy the waning
fashions nnd too early to Invest in
the untried new.

WAR AND PEACE
Here then Is the sorry contrast be-
tween mobilization for war and the
lack of It in pence. Vnder the urgency
of war the Nation instinctively feels
that the strength of all Is Impaired
by the weakness of nny that Its
whole resource Is available to con-
serve every vital force that ns each
Individual nnd class Is needed hy all
so all that the Nation has is avallnble
The difference between the two ex-
periences lies In the presence or ab-
sence of a National consciousness
and resourcefulness In meeting Na-
tional emergencies. In peace we have
not yet become conscious that unem-
ployment is a National emergency to
he met only by the concern and re-
sources of the whole Nation. In
America the emergency Is still
thoughtlessly and unjustly left to the
Individual the family the locality
nnd the class suffering most from it
to grapple with. Even they delay so
late to do so thnt they can have re-
course only to charity Reldom to
Justice: only to relief never to pre-
vention; only to recovery from dis-
astrous effects not to denllng with
causes of disaster. Graham Taylor

discern. Involves us also. We are
whether we like it or not full share-
holders In tho lvlllzatlon which Is
Imperiled. Our commerce and Indus-
try our prosperity and well-being

tions of our common humanity and

WHY A COTTON BUYER
WANTS GOOD ROADS
It was at a good roads meeting last
January In Southern Texas. All winter
the roads had been nearly impassable
and finally In desperation the people
got together to find If something
could not be done to Improve the sit-
uation. Several speeches were made
and loudly applauded after which
there was n lull In the proceedings.
A middle-aged Ilohemlan cotton buyer
then rose to Ills foet and said:
"Meln Friends You ask me why 1
sm for good roads. Now I tell yon.
You know me and you know my busi-
ness. Every yeur I buy your cotton
and I pay you spot cash for It at the
farm and then It is me nnd not you
that hauls It to the depot. Last Oc-
tober I bought your cotton and I put
It on my au:o truck and I hauled It
to town. Then it rained and the
roads got muddy and I could not use
my truck; so I took my teams and
1 1 hauled the cotton but then I no
longer hauled It for nothing but I
charged It to every man of you one
dollar a bale for to haul It to town.
Did you pay me that dollar? You bet
lyoii did! You couldn't haul It for
two dollars a bale yourselves! That
dollar didn't pay me either for one
of my mares she sprained her shoul-
der and now I would sell her cheap.
Then Just before Christmas 1 quit
tjiylng cotton and many of you cam
to me and said that If I would take
your cotton you would pay me two
three or even five dollars a bale to
haul It. I said No." And why?
Ilecause the ronds got worse and
worse and I could not haul It for ten
dollars a bale I could not haul it
at all. Now I am for good roads even
If they cost very much money for
they will save me many hundred dol-
lars every year and you too."

III Health Given as Reason for De-
clining Appointment Governor
In a personul letter addressed to
Governor James E. Ferguson I). A.
Itlesner requested that his name be
withdrawn for appointment as a
member of the board of directors of
the Agricultural and Mechanical Col-
lege. The reason given was 111 henlth
"My health has been poor for the
past two or three months" said Mr.
Itlesner Wednesday "and tipon con-
sidering the matter 1 decided to ask
the Governor to withhold my name.
I do not feel under the circumstances
that I want to take any additional
responsibilities' upon my shoulders
thnn I now have."
That was the only reason for his
being unwilling to serve. He expects
La hear from the Governor within a
few days.' Mr. Itlesner was recently
named ns one of the members of the

NEW ENTERPRISE POPULAR.
That Dryan is a good place to locate
any educational enterprise is Indi-
cated by the way in which Southern
Farm and Dairy the new farm paper
which was started in Bryan last June
has been received. It Is not generally
believed thnt the smaller towns are
a Rood place to locate enterprises
which secure patronage over several
Stntes. That Dryan and vicinity is
looked upon ns a source of dependable
agricultural information Is Indicated
by the fact that this new enterprise
at the end of the first seven months
had more than 5000 subscribers. An
effort was made to build up a circu-
lation among stock farmers in all
the Southern States. The lurgnst
circulation now Is In Texas LouInIuiiii
Arkansas and Oklahoma; however
there are some subscribers In every
State In the I'nlted Stutes and some
In three foreign countries.
The popularity of a dairy paper
now shows the tendency of the times
In the South when diversification Is
being tulked on every hand. Editor
Evans said: "If every Southern
farmer could have been receiving spe-
cial livestock and dulry papers like
the Breeders' Gazette and Hoard's
Dairyman for the past ten years I do
not bcilovo the South would today
be embarrassed as It Is from the cot-
ton situation. Wisconsin where
Hoard's Dairyman Is published is the
leading dulry State and the prosper-
ous conditions there are due largely
to the fuct that constant Income from
dairy cattle has placed the farmers
on a cash basis. Tho dairy advan-
tages In Wisconsin do not even ap-
proximate those found throughout the
South except that they already have
tho good cows and the farmers have
learned by reading nnd experience
how to manage dairy nnd farm hogs."
