The complete returns of the
eleventh census tell a shameful
story of manifest incompetence and
scandalous unfairness. Accordim
to tho figures presented by Super
intendent Porter the population of
the United States foots up 02,480,
54.0, against 50,155,703 ten years
ago, and 38,558,371 in 1870. Thus
he credits the country with an in
crease of only 12,424,757 in the
past decade, in comparison with an
increase of 11,597,412 in the pre
vious decade. These figures of
themselves are sufficient to destroy
the authority of the census, for
they make it perfectly clear that
the enumeration was hopelessly
defective. On the most conserva
tive estimate of numbers that can
be made, in view of the enormous
immigration during the past de
cade and the natural growth of the
population, this Porter census runs
at least 3,000,000 too low.
HOW TO SA YE MEAT.

Women are the conservative sex,
and to that great fact of nature do
we owe tho rationality and dignity
of the race's advancement Wash
We reprint in full the following
article from the Nashville Ameri
can of last fall, for the benefit of
those interested :
In view of the fact that a vas
amount of meat has been lost by
the farmers of Tennessee this sea
son, an interview on the subject
with Mr. Henry C. Hensley, the
veteran pork packer of Nashville
was sougnt oy an American re
Hart & Hen?ley, now Hensley
fc McFarran, have packed many
thousand more hogs annually for
years than any other firm in Nash
ville, and though they have no col
storage arrangements, nave been
remai'kablj successful this year,
They depend on atmospheric con
ditions and skillful handling in
Curing pork, and have lost only a
few joints no more than ordina
rily hi an establishment the size of
the oms they conduct
Mr. Hensley was approached
with the remark i "I understand
a great many of the farmers claim
that the reason so much pork spoil
ed this year was that the proper
kind of salt was not used."
"I do not think there is anything
in that," was the reply, "for I find
that some of the farmers who lost
meat used the identical salt that
we used, while others used other
"jTo what, then, do you attribute
the fact that you have lost no meat
of consequence and that a great
many farmers have lost all they
"The. winter and fall have, as
you know, been unusually w7arm,
and this, of course, has been the
primary cause of the loss of meat ;
but I think had the farmers han
dled their pork properly very little
of it would have been spoiled.
There is a great deal of meat spoil
ed on the farmers hands every year
for this very reason. Some of
them do not put enough salt on it
and again others pack it in salt in
such a way as to exclude the air,
which is about as bad. The rule
among them is to pack it in boxes
and then nail it up as tight as pos
sible, and then they aro afraid to
ook at it for four weeks, when
they open the boxes and finding it
either good or bad hang it up and
' What would you recommend as
he proper method?"
" I could recommend nothing bet
cr than that we use in our packing
louse, which naturally is the best
known to us. It is, in a few words,
as follows :
" It is of primary importance to
pi all the animal heat out of the
meat before salting it. . If the
weather is cool it is little trouble,
but "when n warm snap catches us
it is more difficult. We cut up the
meat and spread it out upon the
floor till it is thoroughly tooled
out, and then rub it through tlto
salt and stack it up a few layers
deep. If the weather is very warm
for killing hogs we let it stay spread
out for two or three days before
salting it down, and in this event
we give it a little salt while wait
ing for the animal heat to leave it
entirely. Ahd then when we go
to sack it we rub it thoroughly
with salt. After this we handle
the meat every few days. If tho
weather is warm we handle it oft
ener than if it is cool, for in the
former case the salt melts and runs
off. Each time we handle it we
run it through the salt-box, and
the meat is re-stacked, tho bottom
pieces being put on top. In this
way it all gets plenty of air. As
the meat is handled each time the
bulks may be made larger, and af
ter about forty days it is entirely
cured, and it makes no difference
how large the bulks are."
"Do you smoke your meat?"
'"None except the hams, and they
are cured in sweet brine and then
smoked. The smoke colors the
meat, but it is not necessary to

A "real meau" trick was played
on a girl the other night. A young
man turning to her, after placing a
penny against his forehead while
his head was tilted back, said:
" Isn't it funny I can't work this
off?" He winked, contracted his
eyebrows, and scowled, but the
penny was apparently immovable
" Hard as it sticks, I could of course
pull it off with my hand But you
would think I could dislodge it
easier than that."
Of course the girl wanted to try
it. "It takes some skill to put it
on in the first place," said he
" There's a knack to it. " " Let mo
try it, won't you ?" Of course she
assented. Everybody watched the
proceedings intently. "To make
it stay," he affirmed, "you have to
press it very hard, lei J me if
hurt you." The girl put on i
ready-for-an-agony look. He die
press hard for at least a minute
Then he took away his hand and
the penny, too, though she did not
see him. " Now," he said, try and
get it off, but don't use your hand.'
She contracted her pretty eye
brows, worked her delicate fore
head prodigiously, and winked her
orbs very hard. It was all the oth
ers could do to keep straight faces.
"Isn't it queer?" she exclaimed
" Haven't I started it yet ?" An
again the contortions began. An
other minute or so went by. It
was agony for the observers, who
wanted to laugh. " I don't believe
there is any penny there at all,'
she added desperately, and put up
her hand to her forehead.
The shout of laughter that fol
lowed might have been heard for a
