Fish Are Plentiful
State Fish and Game Commissioner
Chambers, State Chemist Harms. SLnto
Food and Dairy Commissioner Hansen
and Sol Nelson went to Provo two days
ago to be present at a fishing boo. Nel
son returned to the city Thursday night
and said that he had never seen as
many fish as he saw the past two days.
He said that tho lake Is covered with a
foot of Ice, but that did not bother tho
fishermen from seining. A largo net
was passed under the ice and In the
first haul over 11,000 pounds of fish
mullets, suckers, carp (not the wrestler),
and catfish were taken. Another haul
was made, and over 7000 pounds of fish
were brought In.
Nelson said that seining will continue
every clay for a month. The common
fish aro shipped to all points in the
west. Game wardens arp present during
tho seining to see that no trout or bass
are taken. Nelson said that many large
bass and trout, some of them weighing
six to 'Ten pounds, were caught In the
net. but these fish were returned to the
ON THE ROLLERS
The second race in tho series for the
state championship was run at the Au
ditorium roller skating rink Thursday
evening between Ephralm Jacobson and
Clyde Scofield. The latter defeated Ja
cobson by a wide margin, leading from'
the crack of the gun until the finish.
The race was one mile and the skaters
covered the distance In 2?42. The ad
mirers of young Jacobson were disap
pointed at the poor showing he made,
especially after defeating such a fast
man as Vance. Willie Schatz, the state
champion, stated after the nice that un
less Jacobson defeated Fenton Hardy.
Saturday night, ho would no.t race the
aspirant for championship honors, claim
ing that such a race would be a farce.
Jacobson, however, says he will defeat
Hardy, and also Schatz.

I am thinking of tho stork bird thn't flew

Suppose he'd got tho number wrong, or

Suppose that he had left me with the

If I'd look across to mamma in her sun

And I could nU sit beside hor why, I'd

Suppose the stork had. borne mo to my

I could novor be contented there-, my

I would run away, I know: I would

Higher Cost of Livitig; Contention That Standard mi ll
... "Has Been Raised, But -.Not the Actual Cost
The cost of, living has boon the subject
recently In an interesting controversy In
Sacramonto, Cal. -Casing Its demand on
the "Increased cosf of living," the Typo
graphical Union of Sacramento asked for'
an increase In wages. Tho Newspaper
Publishers' association proposed an in
vestigation of prices and a friendly agree
ment was. mado that tho union anu tho
Publishers' association each should ap-.
point a committee to gather details,
When a comparison of notes began the
union men submitted tho opinions of
several grocers and meat merchants to
the effect that there had been a 10 per
cent Increase In tho cost of living. One
merchant thought the price of clothing
had Increased D per cent. One shoe dealer
expressed' the opinion that shoes generally
cost 50 cents more than five 'years ago.
Ono real estate man said there had been
an Increase in rentw, while others thought
rents generally were lower than five years
'Tho publishers' committee wont more
deeply Into details than the union's In
vestigators. It prepared tabulated state
ments showing the cost in 1009, 1D04 and
1899 of tho leading staple articles. Fig
ures relating to groceries, fresh vege
tables, canned goods, etc., were taken
from the catalogues of one of tho prin
cipal grocery firms in Sacramento. Meat
quotations were made from tho pub
lished market reports of tho years named.
Other prices were secured from books
and records furnishpd by dealers. In
making Its detailed reply to the Typo
graphical Union the publishers' commit
tee starts out by saying:
"There is a well-defined public opinion
that tho cost of living has materially In
omaBcri In the n&st five vears. but In-'
vcstigatlon shows that this Is base'd, not
on an actual Increase In tho price of
items properly entering into the cost of
living, but on the fact that tho average,
family Is spending' more monoy and say
ing less than It used to. Later on 11 will
be shown that flour is about the only item
of living expenses In Sacramento In which
there has been a material Increase since
1904, and as the flour bill In tho average
family of four and seven-tenths persons
Is only one-fiftieth of tho -total living ex--pense.
It will bo seen that even a ma
terial rise in flour (and even if not offset
by a reduction in other Items) will not
make a noticeable Increase In tho total
living expense. , . ,
"So far as Sacramento is concerned,
the change which many families find to
day in their expenditures Is due entirely
to themselves, and their desire for more
luxuries, and not in any way to a change
of llvinc- conditions. This statement will
come as a surprise to many, but a care
ful comparison of prices In the main
Items of family expense five or ten years
ago. and- this year, will fully bear It out.
The woman who pays $20 to $10 for a
hat, simply because it has been Import
ed or carries a unique or fantastic style,
when the same hat will ' be sold later In
the scasbn on Its Intrinsic merit for $5
or S7, will say that the difference repre
sents the Increase In living expenses, as
will the man who this year has replaced
his bicycle by an automobile, or whose
family's .desires" this year call for more
exponslvo clothes and amusements than
were satisfying five years ago. finds his
monthly expenditures Increasing and Ills
savings decreasing, and assumes that the
cost of living has gone up. It Is no
moro true In or.e case than in the othor.
And 'we are quite sure that an analysis
or the facts and figures will convince
your committee on this polnL"
The publishers then take up a large
number of Items In detail. As to cloth
ing, they assert that a man "can dross
better today for the samo or less money"
than five or ten years agcx Shirts and
underclothes are as low as formerly,
"not always tho same garments, but
cqul or better In appearance and dura
In shoes, It is asserted a few men arc
paying fancy prices, while most men are
buying footwear that costs them "no
more than formerly and sometimes less."
Of hats, it Is said that whllo a good hat
formerly was not to be had for less than
$5, "now for $3.50 there is sold one which
is made from the same block, looks as
well, and lasts as long." Discussing
women's wear, tho assertion Is mado
that a woman can be outfitted In a bet
ter way for the same money mat sne
spont five or ten years ago. The com
mittee adds: , , J,,
"But there seems to bo this difference,
"While tho men generally take advantage
of the opportunity to getl the same or an
Improved Bervlce for the same or a low
er price, many women are not content
so to do. Their views In Instances as
to the style of clothes they should weat
and the material from which they should
bo mado. have changed. But the In
creased expenditure occasioned thereby
is not a Just charge against the costj
of living.' "
Passing from tho subject of wearing ap
narcl the publishers' oommlttco takes
ul t ie prices of meats. It finds that beef
of all kinds In June. 1909, was 10 per cent
to 25 per cent cheaper than In J uno. 1904
Mutton leg and rib chops were the same
as In 19M: stew was 25 per cent cheaper;
Pipes at $200 and Tobacco at $1 2
a Pound, the Luxuries of Smokers
"I keep some pipes here that aro priced
as high as 5200' said a tobacconist, who,
according to tho New York Sun. keeps
an extensive line of smokers sup
piles. "I don't sell many of them,
but there Is a pretty fair profit in thorn,
so that It's worth while to keen them
on hand. Mostly they're bought by fra
ternal organizations as gifts for mem
bers who've achieved a silver wedding or
done something meritorious In behalf or
the fraternity, or something of that sort.
They're meerschaums, finely carved.
Occasionally the grown children of some
elderly German will chip in and buy one
of them for their father aa a birthday
gift. The Germans still like meer
schaum pipes, but meerschaums are
practically a dead Issue the ordinary,
uncarved kind. I mean for the every
day smoker. Not one-tenth as many or
thorn are sold now as were sold ten or
fifteen years ago. , , ,
"The meerschaum pipe is an example
of a good thing being virtually killed by
a standard newspaper joke. When the
Jokists began to write their funny stuff
about men smoking themselves black in
the face trying to color meerschaum
pipes, that settled it. The meerschaum
pipe became a sort of a laugh. The man
who owned one got so ho hated to smoke
It when his friends were around.
"Then, too, the great improvement in
tho making of tho briar pipes did Its
share toward banishing the meerschaum.
The meerschaum, you see. never was us
hardv a pipe, anyhow, as the briar. When
you let a meerschaum pipo fall the
chances woro about four out of five that
it would smash. It was a pretty dis
couraging thing for fellows who'd spent
years In coloring meerschaums to have
them break Into olts upon their first fall.
Moreover, the meerschaum never was as
hvglenic a pipe as the briar. The amount
of nicotine that the meerschaum pipe
absorbs Is bound to make It strong and
dlzzlfying, so to speak. I never could
quite see how or why tho gamo of color
ing a meerschaum pipe was worth the
candle. By Industriously smoking the
pipe for a certain term of years you got
a brown or a black bowl. Well, what of
it? Why wouldn't it have been just as
well had tho bowl remained white?
"I've some briar pipes here that sell
for as high as $S0, but they. too. are
mostly gift affairs, with a good deal of
gold gingerbread plustcrod on them. I
wouldn't care to smoke one of them my
self If I were as rich as Rockefeller.
Tho gold trimmings bceomo heated and
burn the fingers, and the pipers are
too nifty and ornate, anyhow, for com
"Just as fine a briar pipe as a man
need want to smoke can be bought for
SC. and first rate pipes sell for 2 to 53.
Four dollars Is about the average price of
a perfect briar pipe. The best briars
como from London and Dublin. Of late
years the Irish pipes are making their
way in this country. Tho Irish briars
give a little greater variety in shapes
than tho English pipes, but both the
London and the Dublin pipes aro tho last
word In that kind of a pipe. I've been
selling briar pipes for thirty years, and
I'vo novcr been able to learn why It is
that we don't mako as good briar pipes
in this country as are made In Great
Britain; but it's the simple fact, of
course, that our briars aro uowhero near
the foreign article. We've got the wood
In this country, and wo can get the
amber and make tho vulcanite and all
that; but somehow wo don't seem to bo
able to assemble the matorials into a
top-notch briar pipe. As the matter
stands and bids lair to stand for years
to como. the British manufacturers ol
briar pipes can pay the heavy duty on
their pipes and still outsell tho Ameri
can briars without the least trouble.
"I carry some smoking tobacco hero
that sulls for as high as $12 a pound
There's little call for Hiich brands, but I
sell enough to keep them from drying up
on me. I can't say that 1 would care to
smoke tobaccos of this kind, though I'm
a plpo smoker. I smoke a brand that
costs onlv 80 cents a pound and get all
the fun In life out of It. Theso excessivo
lv high-priced smoking mixtures and
other mixtures that sell for S4 or $5 a
pound usually are called for by men who,
desirous of abandoning the clgaretto
habit, are trying to switch to the pipe.
They find that cigarettes are hurting
them, and their medical men perhaps,
tell them that tho pipe Is less injurious
wnicn is, oi course, a iuul aim bu wu-
forc trying themselves out as plpo
smokers they begin operations by laying
In a foolishly elaborate outfit of pipes,
smoking tobaccos, pipe clcancrn. humi
dors for the tobacco and so on. I've
scon chaps of this sort Invest S30 or $10
In plpc-smoklng layouts before they'd
over tried smoking a pipe. Well, any
now plpo. no matter how good It Is, Is
more or less liable to blto, tho tongue
bi'fnro It Is broken in. and theso high
priced mixtures that Ihoy always buy at
the outset lilto the tongue all the tlmo
in my opinion and so they find from the
Jump that pipe smoking makes their
tongues raw and blisters tho roofs of
their 'mouths, and after their large In
vestment they cancel all idea of becom
ing pipe smokers and Ihoir layouts arc
on their hands. If these samo follows
who arc anxious to quit cigarettes for
the pipe were first to try themselves out
with agood, wull-soasoned plpo. filled
with an agreeablo plug-cut. they'd be
come permanent converts to tho pipe."
"The men who stick along with the
pipe after trying It. In spit: of blttei
tongues from tho nifty kinds of smoking
mixtures, soon get down to a kind of
cool, substantial tobacco without any
fnncy Ingredients' that agrees' with them,
and from then on they begin to extract
tho real kind of comfort and solace from
a pipe. You'll not fine one sure enough
tried and tested plpo smoker out of fifty
who smokes one of these fancy mixtures.
"The longer a man smokes a pipe the
more simple his taste becomes In the
matter of smoking tobacco. The other
day ono of my old customers, a man who
buys his cigars from me by the thou
sand, as well as all of his smoking to
bacco and other smokers' supplies, came
" 'Say,' said he to me. 'this morning 1
took a trudge through Madison Square,
on my way to my office, and I found my
self walking behind a fellow whose smok
ing tobacco smelt so Infernally good that
I tossed my cigar away so's to enjoy it
still more. This fellow looked like a
longshoreman, and probably he was a
longshoreman. Anyhow, after following
him through the square I stepped up to
him and asked him what kind of to
bacco he smoked. He pulled the bag out
and showed mo the name of 11. It's In
a paper bag and It's called ,' and he
gave me the name of the brand.
"It was a laugh for me, for the brand
he named is a favorite longshoreman's
brand and costs a nickel a paper bag.
It's a pure tobacco at that, only of
course, It's pretty rough stuff. I don't
keep it. but I got a layout of it for this
customer, nnd ho comes in for It as he
wants it and vows and vums that he
hasn't extracted such ecstasy from to
bacco as he docs from the nickel-a-bag
kind since he first began to smoke a plpo
forty years ago."
The Getting and Curing and
Keeping and Cooking of
While salt beef Is not as nutritious nor
so digestible as fresh' meat, It has Its
place, says the Philadelphia Record. At
times It Is craved in the same way that
good ham appeals to tho appetite satiated
with steaks, chops and roasts. It Is
especially good In warm weather, with
frcsl) vegetables, and many people pro
fer to salt. It at home. It takes but little
time to make a cold brine, and If It Is
strong enough so that a small portion of
the salt will not dissolve, no matter how
much It Is stirred, then It Is In good con
dition. Cut the meat into pieces not over
six Inches thick and do not let them He
In the brine too long, becauso the meat
will then be too salt nnd hard.
A scum rising on brine is a sign that
It Is not in good condition. Scald It and
add moro salt, sugar and saltpeter, keep
ing the original proportions of each, or
else throw It away, for it should not bo
used unless In perfect condition. Let the
meat He in the brine three or four days,
when It will be sufficiently salt. In a
large stone jar mix four cups of rock
salt, one-half ounce of saltpeter and one
half cup of brown sugar with four quarts
of cold water. Stir until the solution Is
as complete as It can be made, then lay
In fh. nlonti nf infnf Hint li:i.v hf.fn
rubbed over well with salt. Lay a plate
on the meat and a stone on that, then
cover the Jar.
What pieces to buy for corning Is the
next question. Some housewives select
a solid piece from the round, but It is
a more common way to buy cuts from the
forcqnartcr. That part called the rattle
rand and also the brlskot are ench cut
In throe pieces, and all aro excellent for
corning. The price years ago was low.
but. for some tlmo past no cut of beof

Beef that has been In brine but a few
days 1st host put into boiling wator to
cook. A-s soon as tho water boils again,
skim well and set back where it will sim

much better if cooled in tho water In
which It Is cooked. If beef Is very salt
it is better to put it on In cold water,
but In either case cook slowly. When
beef Is to be pressed place it with the
fibres running lengthwise of tho pah or
mold, as tho slices will then cut across
tho grain. Set another pan on the beef
and a flatlron In it for a weight.

the committee reports that coffee and B f.HI

lower; cane sugar a trifle higher; rice I JHVJ
unchanged. "Flour." the rqport says, ;4. ' fl
"seems to be the one staple" in which j Hfl
there has been a material increase in n I ISM
five years." In June. 1909, it was 50. per :
cent higher than In June, 1904. Since M Hfl
June it has declined. The committee 3.,
thinks It would be "manifestly unfair to J fjpj
say there has been any lncreaso In fresh ; 1 iBia
vegetables." Bunch vegetables, It finds,
arc higher. Potatoes am the same as In I
1904, and much cheaper than In 1899. ; V
There has been no change in cabbage and- IHT;
beets; carrots and turnips are 11 o 20 'i iV'J

corn is 33 per cent cheaper, tomatoes are jJ HII
the same; peas are higher. The commit- ll flBl
tee draws the conclusion -that "as more ' iH'l

other kinds of canned vegetables, It. is .
fair to say that prices are lower than , UliBfl
In '1904." ) H'lB
As to fruit, the committee says it ilH
probably Is somewhat cheaper than It "jBX

fore concludes: ' '(
"Tho average family is spending more ) jpS
