When Prices Go Down
Your Dollars Go Up!
We have all been familiar with the cry
during the pa& few years that "the dollar
won't buy as much as formerly." With
prices going up daily, that has been the
situation. As mo& people know the tide
has turned and now the dollar of today in
many lines, can buy from one-quarter even
up to one-third more thair it could buy
even two or three weeks ago,
It is simply the working out of.the old
laws of supply and demand—they may be
slow in proving, but they get -there ju&

TO NUMBER FUR SEALS
Dr. Dallas Hanna WiH Make New
Purpeee la to Determine Hew Many
Seals Can Be Removed
Ban Francisco.—Dr. G. Dallas Han
na, a member of tlie staff of the Cali
fornia Academy of Science, has Juat
left here for Alaska, where he will
make census of the fur seals on the
Prfblloff islands, under the direc
tion of the United States bureau of
Doctor Hanna has been connected
with this work each year since 1913.
In 1919 it was reported that there
were 540.000 animals In the herd. In
1910 when the government first took
over the operation of the Island In
dustry, there were fewer than 200,000.
During the time when this Increase
was taking place enough surplus and
useless males have been killed and
their skins sold at auction to provide
the national treasury with $3,500,000
above all "xpenses, according to \V.
\V. Siirj.'eant, secretary of the Cali
fornia Academy of Science.
The purpose of fhe census is chiefly
to determine how many animals can
be safely removed each year and still'
provide for a maximum percentage of
increase of the herd. If the increase
in lOi'O continues-as heretofore, it is
said that there should be about 600,000
of these amphibious fur bearers, by
far the largest herd in existence, as
well as a surplus of about 30,000 males
which can he killed for their skins.
At current prices of these furs they
will be valued at about $3,000,000.
"Since the cost of operation will be I
less than $200,000, it Is quite evident
that this industry Is one of the best
financial enterprises the government 1
has," said .Mr. Sargennt.
"It is capable of almost unlimited
expansion, provided the females are,i
protected :it:sea and the surplus males
are removed from the herd. The fight
inn of such males on the crowded rook
eries causes a large mortality among
the females.and young. I
"The carcasses of the animals killed
were formerly allowed to waste, but
last year a by-product plan was put
into operation by means of which it
is expected a very superior oil and
animal meal will be placed on the
market. The census wIMeh will be
taken in 1020 will enable a close ap
proximation to be made of the quan
tities of these "products which will
be available in the Immediate future."
