other kinds etc. und more than 300
tonts. Tho Japnneso loss was twenty
killed nud eighty-three wounded.
The Chinese loss was more than 200
killed; tho exact number of their

It is bolievod at the Japanese lega-

Chinese commander who played such
iv prominent part during the Ton
King difllculty and to whoir it was

representing tho Symns Grocery com-

stato superintendent of Insurance
this morning of 'extortionate rates
exacted by tlio fire insurance agencies
of that city. The hoitsu carries about
8200000 insurance upon which the
rate 1ms been ninety per cout on the

notice that tlio rate would hereafter

A Cruile luaucurnled In n Number of
Cltlr for Cheaper llreail.
Washington Oct. 29. In view of
the crusado for cheaper bread in-
augurated in a number of cities in
cluding Washington whore tho price
lias been reduced from five to four
cents per loaf as a result of tlio cru-
sado. tlio agricultural department has
given out a bulletin on "tho cost of
bread" taken from tlio forthcoming
report of Professor W. O. Atwator on
the nutritlvo value of food. It says:
"In practice 100 pounds of Hour will
make from 133 to 137 pounds of bread
an average being about 130 pounds.
"Flour such ns is used by bakers
is now purchased iu tlio Kastern
states at not over $1 per ban el. Th.s
would make tho cost of Hour In m
pound of bread about IK cento. Al-
lowing oue-lialf cent for the ahortoa-
Ins and suit which is certainly vo'ry
liberal the materials for a poand'uf
brcud would cost not mora than two
cents. Of course there aliould be
added to tills tho cost of labor rent
interest on investment cxpons of
selling etc to make tha actual cost
to tho Laker very foiv accurate
weighings und nnulysis of baker's
bread havo been made In
this country so far as
I am awure but the above statement
represent tho facts as nearly as 'I
havo been able to obtain them. The
average weight of a number of speci-
mens of ten cent loaves purchased In
MIllutovvn Conn . was one and one-
fourth pounds. This makes the
prices to tlio consumer eight cent
per pound. Tho prica of bread and
tho size of the loaf uro practically the
suni' now us wli.'ii Hour cost twlco ti
"Tho cout of bakers' bread is a com-
narativei. ainail matter to the nersoa
tvtin lmuu nnlv n lnnf nnw nml flinnf
but in the Eastern stales and in the
larger towns throughout the country
many people and especially those
with moderate incomes and the poor
buy their bread of the baker. Six
cents per pound or even half that
amount for tho manufacture and dis-
tribution seems a' very large amount.
In tho larger cities competition has
made bread much cheaper but even
there the difference between the cost
of broad to the well-to-do family who
bake it themselves and the family of
the poor man who buys it of the
baker is unfortunately large."
The report also Te Into the
chemistry and scientific features of
bread-making. The nutrlmoata In
bakers' bread are: Protean (I per
cent; fats S par cont; carbohydrate!
!iO par cent; miueral matter 1 per
Cent Total OS per cent nutrimout
and 33 per cent of water. In wheat
(lower thp total nutriments are 88
rior cent nnu wnter is per cont snow-
ng that the nutriments arc largely
rcducd by baking. Tile potential
energy iu a pound of flour is 2000 per
cent; in a pound of bakers' bread
1300 per cent With tho Increase in
the proportion of water In the broad
as compared with tho flour the pro-
portion of nutriments is diminished.
but the addition of shortening
and salt brings up the fat and
minerals in the bread so that the pro-
portions are larger than In flour."
