Why Beef Is A High Priced
A leading grazier sent in tho fol
lowing clipping from tho Butchers
and Stockgrower's Journal, to show
tho reason for the rise in tho price
of beef. It looks like turning a bull
loose on the beef market, but it re
presents tho point of view of cattle
men who are entitled to .have their
say as well as the consumer.
"The London Meat Trader Journal
is of the opinion that the world's
meat supply is rapidly decreasing,
while the demand, if normal con
ditions continue, must necessarily
increase with the increase of popu
lation. Tho world is eating up its
sheep, says tho Journal, and the
number on foot is steadily being
diminished. As this view applies
to the former great herds of Austra
lia and all tho other sheep breeding
part's of the world, it means more
than such statements usually do;
and if true it affects not -only the
supply of food, but the supply of
clothing also. With the reduction
of mutton must come a correspond
ing reduction of wool.
"Tho important British authority
above referred to, declares further
that available statistics show that
tho number of cattle, hogs and poul
try is also diminishing at such a
rate that should there bono increase
all would be consumed within three
years. In other words, the world
now has on hand but three years'
supply of meat, and unless tho in
crease exceeds the consumption,
which it is not doing now, the time
can not bo distant when meat will
be more and more of a luxury."
should carefully deliberate and
settle each issue on its merits. He
hoped for the assistance of his
colleagues in the work and pledged
himself to do whatsoever was best
for the people of tho County of
Approving of the Bonds.
The bond of theUounty Attorney
was submitted and examined. Tho
bond of tho County Attorney hav
ing been found to be in order, Mr.
Meyer moved that the same be ap
proved. Seconded by Mr. Haia
and carried. Together with the
oath of ollice the bond was ordered
filed with the County Treasurer.
Tho bonds of the County Auditor,
Sheriff, and Deputy Sheriffs Cro
well, Morton, Lindsay, Devauchello
and Levi Joseph wero submitted.
Mr. Haia moved that the bonds
