Conserve Meat. Reduce Cost of
Living by Buying Cheaper
Despite the general complaints
about the high cost of living, retail
ers of meat declare that they have a
brisk demand for the so-called choice
cuts, but find it difficult to sell the
less expensive portions. The ribs and
the loins are very popular, while
wholesome meats like chuck, flank
and brisket are sadly neglected.
This situation has become so acute
that many retailers no longer stock
the less costly cuts of meat; others
grind these cuts up into Hamburger
steak. Some of the inexpensive pieces
are almost literally wasted. The de
land for meats at retail is thorough
ly uneven. This makes merchandising
Who pays for this waste? Who
pays for this loss of efficiency? You
know who pays. It will not be a popu
lar thought, but it does seem a sort
of poetic justice that those who have
created this situation are facing the |
problem of changing it, or paying for
it: I mean the consumers.
Loins and ribs make up about 25
per cent of the dressed meat animal.
Yet it is on that 25 per cent that a
great part of the demand is concen
trated. When demand is heavy for
any commodity which is available in
relatively small quantity, the obvious
effect on price does not necessitate
Many cuts of meat-meat that is
wholesome, meat that is rich in food
value, meat that is thoroughly palat
able when properly prepared-is sell
ing at low prices. Let's buy. No table
is disgraced by a savory stew, a good
pot roast, which will appeal to the
normal appetite. If you do not be
lieve corn beef is tasty and popular,
pick up a luncheon menu in some ho
tel and scan it. All of these dishes
and many others can be made from
meat cuts selling at relatively low
prices. They may not be available at
your retailer now, but if you and
your friends will create a demand for
them, he will handle them. During
"Save Money on Meat" Week it is
hoped that the retail dealers will buy
the less costly cuts in quantities ade
quate to meet the demand. Ask your
butcher what he intend to do; and in
order to be fair, tell him what you
intend to do. If he carries it in stock,
will you buy it? Do you really want
good meat at low prices?
Westmoreland steaks and brisket
of beef can be found in table d'hote
luncheons at some of the largest ho
tels in the country. If these dishes are
good enough for the Astorbilt-if
you try them-you may find them
good enough for you.
If there are any persons here who
do not undei-stand how to prepare
the less costly cuts, write to the State
Chairman, Division of Women's ac
tivities, Depart eut of Justice, High
Cost of Living Campaign; or write
to this Division of the Department at
Washington and ask for information.
Ask your retailer what meat he
likes for his home table. You may be
surprised tp learn that he does not
have porterhouse and sirloin steaks
for dinner every night.
Daring "Save Money on Meat"
Week, give the inexpensive cuts a
fair trkal, if you have not done so al
ready. But begin now to "Save Mon
ey1' by studying these cuts, and then
buy them. In that case you will be in
a position to take full advantage of
the opportunities offered during
"Save Money on Meat" Week.
Buy chuck steak and make roasts
and stews. Ask for plate beef and
turn it into soup and pot roast. Pur
chase flank for pot pies, or flank
steak or stew in accordance with the
part of the flank which you buy. Call
for brisket for pot roasts or corn
beef. Try round steak just for an ex
periment and see how much by ju
dicious buying you can save on meat
in one week, without sacrificing
quantity or palatability.

S. C. Going After Civil War
An effort that may result in the
securing for South Carolina and cer
tain South Carolinians the sum of
approximately four million dollars is
being made by J. E. McDonald, attor
ney of Winnsboro, acting as special
agent for the state of South Carolina
under an act of the recent legisla
ture, for the recovery fr m the fed
eral government of funds due the
state from cotton seized and destroy
ed during the Civil War as taxation.
Mr. McDonald has been in Colum
bia during the past few days and he
states that he has been contracted
with by the governor and the attor
ney general, to handle the big claim
Mr. McDonald states that there are
twenty-five or thirty states interested
in getting similar funds from Con
gress, and the agents of these states
are to co-operate in an effort to have
congress pass an act which will al
low the recovery of this money. An
act of 1915 cut off all possibility of
recovering such funds.
A meeting is to be held in Wash
ington at some future date, when the
representatives of these states, in
cluding New York, Utah, California,
South Carolina, and others will co
operate in an effort to get an act
through Congress providing for the
refund to the states of the money in
Some of the claimants to this cot
ton fund are still living. Others have
died and their share will likely es
cheat to the state. John I. Rice at
torney of Columbia, is handling
claims of this nature for a number
of citizens, and there are probably
others who will be able to substan
tiate their claim to part of the fund.
Efforts have been made in" past
years, states Mr. McDonald, to get
such funds provided by Congress but
the efforts have been by individuals.
He states that by the concerted ac
tion of the agents of all the states in
terested, the money can be more like
ly secured.-Columbia Record.

WHAT IS HOME WITHOUT
The installation of water works for the town is now under way. There
has been gradual increase in the cost of plumbing material and fixtures for
the past two years or more, and we see no prospect for a decrease for
months to come. Supply houses cannot guarantee delivery at any specif ied
time. I cannot give an estimate and guarantee prices for more than four
or five days. If the estimate is accepted I can guarantee the pnces whether
the work will be done at once or in the next thirty days. In any case there
will probably be some delay. The wise man will install his plumping now
and connect with the town water works later.
