What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Food- Administration: It is, of course, generally known that the value or wheat of various grades and varieties depends upon three factors: First, the relative distance from the consuming marlwts, because of the differences in - freight rates to tbe.points natirmi below; seeond, the variety of the wheat and its relative value for flour production; third the grade of the wheat as to quality and im- wirities..Ivithin the various vari- eties.
