There is plenty of salt. As the head of one salt company put it:
"There is no more chance of a famine in salt than there is in salt water. The salt in New York state is as inexhaustible as the salt in the ocean."
Yet some retailers are out of salt. Various persons whose foresight is so excellent that they see what isn't there have been buying five and six times as much salt as usual..
Perhaps they will try to sprinkle some on the tall of the little bird that told them there was going-to be a salt famine. --New York Sun
