Father Boyle went to Denver Tuesday to rush work on the completion of his church. The work has been somewhat retarded be cause of a lack of material. Reports from the Brandstettcr family, who recently moved to Denver, are tlmt all are down with the flu, but are out of danger and regaining their usual health. It is said that the flu at Urad has reached the proportions of an epidemic, and quarantine regulations have been cstabliseed to prevent further spread of the disease.

again, on again, come again, gone again" is certainly applicable i to the Denver authorities in their issuing of orders relative to wear ing masks as a flu preventative. They can issue freak orders fast. County Clerk Hafer issued 450 booze permits during the month of November. fearful to contemplate the effect of the enactment of the Bone Dry law upon those who swore they needed two quarts of medicine( month. His honor, Mayor J.

J. White, is on the sick list this week, threatened with the flu. It seems difficult to Btamp out the dread disease, while some of the medical pro fession assert that it will be with us all winter and break out in the spring in itsiworst form. Thanksgiving was celebrated very quietly by our people. While we have numberless things for which to be thankful, turkeys at 65 cents a pound was too much for the average pocketbook.

Consequently the Thanksgiving spread was generally abandoned. Mrs. J. C. Iverson hat returned from California, where Bhe was culled on account of the death of her brother.

She became bo infatuated with the people and the climate that she contemplates making that section her home in the near future. At the annual meeting of the Georgetown brunch of the Red Cross, Mrs. J. S. Randall was elected-chairman; Mrs.

G. D. Criley, secretary; and George B. McFadden, treasurer. Crosses were awarded to those who took an active part and furnished their quota of work.

The executive committee will meet the third of each month at the public library at 7:30 p. m. There are quantities of yarn on haud for sweaters and socks, and the knitters are expected to coniinue work on hospital shirts and pajamu suits. Our voluntary rood-saving not only saved the Allies and made vltnl contribution to the winning of Hie war, but saved to ourselves In administration expenses the outlay out of our own pockets thnt nny effective system of rationing would have extracted. It would have cost us about $45,000,000 to have polieed ourselves ns against the 2 cents per capita for co-operating.

By saving and sharing America kepi ihe world together during the war crisis. By saving sharing America will help to bring the healing of nations. Saving starving people Mining Activities of Upper Clear Creek Good progress is being made in placing the steam shovel at the Colorado Central mine. Sufficient material will be handled to ktiep running to capacity the mill, which is heated by steam. A large production may be looked for Hank Butler, manager of the Santiago mine in East Argentine, was down during the week, and reports development as up to expectations, with new ore bodies being opened up daily.

The driving ahead of the lower levels proves the continuity of ore bodies from the surface without a break No effort at production is to be uiade during the severe winter months when roads are almost impassible for hauling purposes. But he says to look out for something doing when spring opens up. Culbertson, Lecce and Doyle are now operating a lease on tile Ruler vein through the Capital tunnel. They have a good-sized streak of silver-lead, with a smaller percent of gold ore to start on. The energy which these three well known miners are equipped assures a large and steady production from now oil.

The stone quarry at Brownville is running full time getting out stone which is shipped to Denver, where it is dressed into monuments of a superior quality. This is an industry that has carried on successfully for a number of years, ami Manager Lampshire says there are more orders on hand than he can fill in the next year. A fan and air pipe is being installed at tlie Georgetown tunnel for the purpose of more thoroughly veutilating the mine, when hotter results may be expected. Ore now exposed may he economically broken and shipped. SEVEN LOAVES OF BREAD FOR EVERY PERSON IN U.

S. SAVED FROM WASTE Farmers and Threshermen Patriotically Respond to Call of Food Administration. From Information received by the U. S. Food Administration from the principal grain growing states, It is now possible to announce with fair accuracy the amount of saved Inst harvest by Improved methods of handling.

According to official calculations, efforts toward cleuner threshing saved fully 16,000,000 bushels of wheat with corresponding savings of other small grain harvested and threshed In a similar manner. In addition, other states, though unable to furnish tlgures, reported greatly reduced harvest losses. The figure for wheat alone Is equivalent to seven one-pound loaves of bread for every person in the United States and represents food that formerly was either an absolute loss or was recovered to only a slight extent by poultry and livestock. While opportunities in this branch of conservation were large, the quantity of grain recovered surpasses early expectations. It is noteworthy also that results were secured principally through voluntary co-operation.

No conservation measure of the Food Administration, it is declared, has received more wholehearted support than that pledged and rendered by farmers and threshermen toward reducing grain waste at its source. The benefits of our food-saving campaign that was a vital factor In the winning of the war were not all to these we fed. We have at home a new appreciation of food that will prevent It ever being wasted again by those that have come to understand the religion of saving and the place thai food occupies in our new, world-wide human relations. Out of empty granaries to draw 141, 000,000 bushels for will of a free people accomplished that mar veL Do you remember when food con trol by voluntary action was deemed a daring adventure In democracy 1 AID FOR CATTLEMEN WITHDRAWN. According; to a telegram received from the secretary of the Cattle Loan Agency of the War Finance Corporation at Kansas City by the livestock division of the United States Food Administration for Colorado, the corporation has been urged by its legal advisers that, being a war organization only, it must wind up its affairs by the time peace is declared and therefore not expect to do much more business through the agency." This amounts to a practical closing of the Cattle Loan Agency at Kansas City as far as further loans to cattlemen is concerned.

"Congress may endeavor to help the cattle H. H. Tompkins, head of the livestock division of the food administration said. Congress cannot take action until December and that will be too late to help the situation any this CELEBRATE WITH DOUGHNUTS. Delicacies topped or sprinkled with powdered sugar have been made possible again by the United States Food Administration as a sort of holiday gift.

The ban placed on household consumption of powdered sugar by the food board two months ago has been lifted and retailers are now permitted to let housewives take part of their allotment of sugar in the powdered form. FRANCE HARVESTS WHEAT IN RECONQUERED LANDS That France, unlike Germany, is not sitting supinely by and waiting for the American farmer to supply her with food, but has brourht in a harvest from the very battlefields themselves, is clearly shown by a report recently made by the France Department Office of Agricultural Reconstruction to the United States Food Administration for Colorado. The report states that more than 137,500 acres of wheat recovered from the enemy in the successful counteroffensive of July and August were harvested under the direction of the department.
