Sixty Per Cent Killed Under Federal
Hundred Million Meat Animals Slaughtered
Each Year in United States
?Tuberculosis Is Chief Cause
Washington.?More than 58,000,000
meat animals were slaughtered in establishments
under federal inspection
during the fiscal year ending June 30,
1915. Since approximately from 58 to
ftO r.or rent rvf tho animala trill ori it?
the country are slaughtered in establishments
where federal inspection is
maintained, it appears that about 100,000,000
meat animals are now being
killed each year in the United States.
Of the animals subjected to federal
inspection, 299,958 were condemned as
unfit for human use, and 644,688 were
condemned in part. Thus a litle#more
than 1 per cent of all the animals
inspected were condemned either in
whole or in part. These figures include
only cattle, calves, sheep, goats
Tuberculosis was the chief cause of
the condemnations^ More than 32.644
carcasses of cattle and 66,000 carcasses
of swine were entirely rejected
on account of this disease, and in addition,
parts of 48,000 cattle and 40,000
swine. Hog cholera was responsible
for the next largest loss, nearly 102,000
swine being condemned entirely on
The annual appropriation for the federal
meat inspection service is now
about $3,375,000, so that the cost to the
people would be between 5 and 6 cents
per animal and carcasses. In addition,
however, great quantities of the meat
and products are re-inspected. In this
item there was a very considerable increase
during the last fiscal year, the
re-inspection resulting in the condemnation
of a total of nearly 19,000,000
pounds of products of one kind or
another. Furthermore 245,000,000
nrmnHc nf imnnrtod mpflt AT nrr>d
ucts were inspected, and more than
2,000,000 pounds condemned or refused
In the course of its work, the bureau
of animal industry, which is in
charge of the meat inspection service,
has discovered a new method of destroying
trichinae in pork, which is
an additional safeguard to human
health. Refrigeration at a temperature
of 5 degrees, F., or lower, for a
period of 20 days, will destroy these
parasites which occasionally give rise
in human beings to the serious disease
known as trichinosis. Hitherto
the only known safeguard against this
disease has been thorough cooking of
all pork and pork products, and those
persons who neglect this precaution
have always been more or less exposed
to the danger. Unless pork is known
to have been subjected to refrigeration
as above indicated, it should be thoroughly
cooked. The microscopic examination
of pork for the detection of
trichinae has been abandoned as the
usual methods have proved inefficient.
In this connection it is interesting to
note that more swine were slaughtered
in the past year in establishments under
federal inspection than ever before.
A total of 36,247,953 were inspected
at the time of slaughter, and
approximately -35,900,000 passed for

Contending Armies of Europe Are
Battling in a Region of Intense
"Serbian winters are severe, and!
cheerless, with dull skies, and sharp,f

while intense cold settles upon the

Winters in the highlands of Serbia
are as strenuous as those of Russia.
"The lines of the contending armies
are now drawn up through the
areas visited by the coldest winter,
which are found in the southern
central parts of the kingdom. Here
in the southern and central mountains,
despite the fact that Serbia'climate
is generally described as being
mild, winter reigns with a stern
arctic sway. Among the hardiest
peasants in the Balkans, people inured

these cold uplands, and it is their
homes which are now coming within
the battle zones."
