f HAGENBARTH'S BAD BREAK.
President Frank J. Hagonbarth, of
tlio National Live Stock Association, Is
about as sapient; about as wise; as
sagacious; about as acuto as any man
who over came down the pike. This
Is demonstrated by an Interview he
stands sponsor for In yesterday's issue
of the Herald. In this Interview he
attempts to show why beef on the hoof
brings a very low price to the retailer.
I Listen to what Mr. Hagenbarth says,
yen buyers of meat.
"I3eef is high to the consumer, be
cause more than half the consumers in
this country demand loin steak or rib
roast. They will not buy tho cheaper
and poorer grades of meat. Tho result
Is that there is an abnormal demand
for tho bettor meat while tho poorer
meat goes begging. Go into tho market
and you will llnd that you can buy th6
nock, the shank and the other pari
of the carcass asido from tho loin sur
All of which shows that Hagenbarth
doesn't know what he Is talking about1.
L It may bo true that tho neck Is cheap;
it always has boon cheaper than the
other parts of tho carcass, but there
aro several dips, spurs and angles to
a carcass outside tho neck. And there
is more loin in a beef than there is
neck. But lot us lay aside
tho loin and tho rib and buy
a pleco of common round steak, pome
of it tougher than that cut from a
Hull of Bashan. How much does two
bits buy Mr. Hagenbarth? About one
pound and a half. Some shops may
sell a little more, but take any of tho
so called standard markets and try It
Take tho Hank steaks dry, tasteless
fodder that they aro, and see how
cheap thoy sell at. A quarter's worth
will just about cover your two hands.
How about bri3ket and rump roasts?
Can you touch them for less than 12
cents and oftener 14 and 15 cents the
pound? NIt. Surely Hagenbarth lets
his cook buy tho meat and knows
nothing about It. Tanglo up with a
shank bono for soup Mr. Hangen
barth and see what you pay for It.
fTlmo was when a soup bono was
cheap, now the salesman charges you
about 25 cents a pound for tho moat
on one and throws the bono in. He
Is always generous with the bone, is
tho modern butcher's salesman. If
Hagenbarth knpws no more about
pr!co3 of beef than his interview dem
1 onstrates Hangenbarth ought to
resign and get himself elec
ted President of some saw
mill association. Every housewife in
Zion can successfully contradict him.
Tlmo was when liver was supposed
to be an article that any one could
have. Nowadays liver sells anywhere
lrom twelve to twenty cents per
pound. Tho butcher used to cut out a
small bit of tho bono from one's steak
and saw off tho lower bono and tho tall
bone from one's leg of mutton. He
will do it yet, but not until tho meat
has been weighed. After it is yours,
it ho is a good follow, ho will cut It
out and toss it into tho box whoio it
remains until tho proprietor of some
dago joint comes round and buys tho
whole moss for soup.
Hagenbarth declares tho people all
want rib roast and loin steaks. Lot
him look at tho bargain counters in
tho Palace and other leading moat
markets overy night and see caro worn
wlvc3 overciowed tho place In their
anxiety to get something tilling and
cheap and ho will seo where ho is mis
taken. Ho lb a theorist that's all, and
what ho don't know about prices of
meat would fill a library.

Nut half so many divorces aro

Improving an Old Phrase.
An English instructor in a rather
comprebonElvo talk to tho wise young
women referred to tho period that ex
tends "from tho cradle to tho grave."
Then he stopped abruptly. "No," ho
went on, "that Is an obsolete phrase.
Thero aro no more cradles and soon
there will be no moro graves. Tho
modern form should bo 'from the has
Jinet to the crematory.' " Now York

Man's First Weapon.
Man's first weapon sooms to have
been tho sword. When tho Spaniards
came to Mexico they found tho native
Indians armed with wooden swords,
and this was probably tho most primi
tive form of tho weapon, but, after tho
discovery of medals, bronze swords
were introduced, of which many havo
at different times have been found.
As to Love and War.
A fine old soldier passed by. "Thero
goes Gen. ," said a man about
town who knows everybody by sight
Tho visitor stared at tho veteran.
"Great fighter," ho remarked. "Yes,"
returned tho other, "but they say his
daughter has been through moro en
gagements than tho old man." Now
Color of Eyes Important.
The color of the eyes is said to de
pend upon a pigment which supplies
them with color. But this coloring
pigment is not always reliable. Deep
blue eyes will look faded if ono is
tired. Tho color pigment does not
flow freely. If agitated they will
darken and deepen in hue.
Does Tobacco Cause Bllndness7
A doctor stated in an English coun
