OATS. RICE AND MAIZE. I SOME COMING BREAD I MIXTURES. COTTAGE AND FANCY LOAVES TO GO. "Exit, the cottage lo-if I" I This, in Mr. W. H. Palmer's opinion, is fast coming. Likewise the disappearance of bread rolls and fan-oy breads in every shape and form, the latter being Irii-vitable. Nlr. Palmer (Argyle-street), who was seen by a "Daily Post" representative on Thursday on the matter, has the benefit of inside know- ledge, for he was one who recently waited upon the Director of Food Stuffs, and with his practical knowledge of suggestions there set forth and practically agreed upon knows as much as anyone in the trade which way the wind is going to blow. The facts which are bringing this revised system "f economy about are, (1) The shortage of wheat production I necessitating (a) Conserving the available supplies by lengthening them out with admixtures; (b) And by abolishing fVJJcy forms of I bread tending to effect economy in con- sumption. Fim.t, Mr. Palmer says flour will be fur- ther diluted (as laymen know it) by bring- ing it up to what is ?enora.Hy known as stan- dard I riiL'l; wiU inake it more nutri- tious and sustaining. Ther. there is the question of additional mixtures to its natural qualities-rice, oats, maize, etc. Mr. Palmer' personally favours oats, for Mr. P,,i l nie,-r 0 theee we grow hugely, and oaten bread is very palatable. But it is most probable aU the additions will have to he used. Why the Cottage Loat Must Co. I The cottage loaf is doomed. That is SO far as its shape. Why, you will ask? Mr. Palmer explains that it entails more labour to make than the flat loaf, and that by re- stricting all shapes to the homely tin and the bun shaped or flat cake bread, coupled with the fact that no bread will at an early date be delivered before it is 12 hours' old. will inevitably restrict the -consumption. Fancy shapes. will no longer attract the consumer he will be contmed to ms necessities, and this will save both labour and supplies. "Labour is a very serious factor no' pays Mr. Palmer. Yesterday here "Ie worked 16 hours—from 4 in the morning till I,, 1 this time the ordinary bread output totalled up to over 1.500 four- pound loaves alome. It is simply a matter of time How before the suggestions as detailed will be brought iuto force. This is Mr. Palmer's opinion, and. as a matter of fart, is the opinion of all those in the best position to judge.
