Chicago, Feb. 12.—Food iiricea are tumbling. Tliat.arinouncemi-.-iit is not a' mere theory, but a present-day- fact, to be demonstrated by a little trip through any. of the wholesale markets where .the retail, grocery buyers haggle with the commission, men"nnd the commission men/smile instead of_ pulling, long faces,.for they, strange as it may seem to some persons, want lower instead of higher prices. It means better business.. Eggs, for instance, fresh from- the country, candled and sorted, are selling today to the retailer for 50% cents a dozen.. The fair price commission allows the retailer seven .cents profit, although most of them are satisfied with three to six cents. That makes .strictly fresh eggs from 59 to. G2 cents a dozen. - It was only a few weeks ago that eggs were wholesaling at 92 cents 'and retailing at 9-1 or more. Butter, selling today at 61 cents for 93 score product—60 to 70 cents'at retail—was selling to the retailer in December at 75 cents. Potatoes, wholesaling at $4.05 to S4.S5 for 100 pounds—the retailer, is allowed no more than one cent a pound \ profit—were wholesaling two weeks ago for- $5.25 t6 $5.75. Getting away for a moment from the subjects of eggs, butter and potatoes, there was good news for the householder in dispatches from Minneapolis, which told of a sarnml ")0-cent drop in flour within n week, making the price $1 lower for wholesale (iuo- tations than a week ago.

Berlin Paper Says They Get Wrong ; Impression of Food Conditions ' In Germany. Berlin. Feb. 32.— Members of missions from allied countries are too well fed hy German hotelkeepers and consequently get a wrong impression of food conditions in Germany, the official organ of the German Hotelkeep- ers' organization declares in a signed article.' The German people suffer as a result, the article points out, as the members ol the missions return home with the impression that Germany has a plentiful supply of food, all because of the anxiety of the bonifaces , to the- visiting officials comfortable and set a good table for them. The article declares that members of the American mission have 'especially misrepresented conditions, after having lived for several months in a fashionable hotel, where they lacked notlv Ing for their comfort.
