THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS. FRIDAY. AUGUST 8, 1913.

A Misplaced Light
On the Shore
has led to many a ship
wreck. It is equally fatal to a
storekeeper if his adver
tising chief kindles a
light that misleads.
It is impossible to con
ceal the false lights from
a few at least who know:
1 The makers of the goods
exaggerated by their customer's
public statements as to quantity
2 Th buyers and managers
know and almost curse a pol
icy that silences them.
3 The Store's salesmen are
not naturally fools or frauds, and
they are conscious of the hard
ship of bolstering up misrepre
sentations. 4 In course of time people
find out the fact and became
embittered at being taken ad
This 19-year-old Store
is not here for nothing.
It is a watch tower, ob
serving the lights along
the shore and trimming
its own light hour by
hour, that none may lose
their way nor regret that
they followed its clear
shining along the paths
of its daily work.

Americans are the greatest meat
eaters in the world. They beat John
Bull, with all his legends about the
beaf of old England. Moreover, they
eat more beef per capita than the
Figures for meat-eating in 1309, just
made public by the bureau of animal
Industry of the department of agricul
ture, show that the per capita con
sumption of meat for that year in the
United States was 162.2 pounds, divid
ed as follows, fractions omitted: Beef,
eighty pounds: veal, seven; pork, sixty-seven;
mutton and lamb, sis; goat
Over in Epgland, where they boast
about good old roast beef, the per cap
ita for that product is only fifty-six
pounds. Moreover, the proportion of
beef in the total eateu by the American
Is exactly the same as for the British
er forty-seven per cent. Inhabitants
of the "tight little Isle" make up their
total by eating twenty-six pounds of
mutton a year, against the An.ericans'
The Spanish are the smallest meat
eaters, their per capita consumption
being only forty-nine pounds. Ger
many's is 113 pounds. In both Germany
and France pork is the favorite meat
"In view of the growing scarcity and
high price of cattle and swine and
their products on our markets in re
cent time, it is well to call attention to
the comparatively insignificant part
played by the bovine species 'in our
meat dietary," the bureau declares. "It
may be seen that we consume only six
pounds of mutton and lamb per head a
year, which is barely 4 per cent of the '
total meat supply. When we compare
this small consumption of mutton with
that of England, a very striking con
trast Is presented.
"Our small consumption no doubt Is
mainly attributable to the exceedingly
cheap and abundant supplies of beef,
and pork which have prevaled in form
er years, thus rendering it unneces
sary to look elsewhere, for meat. But
the day of cheap meat is past and
the present market prices of food ani
mals point to the fact that it is be
coming more and more imperative that
every available source of our meat
supply should be carefully developed.
Hence the necessity for more sheep
"It is imdcniablc that the sheep spe
cies, botli in the lamb utage and when
older,, finishes meat of most excelent
duality when the animals are suited
for this purpose. Therefore, the pres
ent seems to be an opportune time for
stockmen to pay more attention to the
raising of shoep for meat production.
"Finally, it would be in the interest
of economy for the people generally to
cultivate a greater taste for muttou
and Iamb, especially the smaller faru-
ile3 who require Joints of a size that
cannot usually be supplied from the
largnr beef animals. A more insistent
demand on the part of the public for
mutton and lamb cf good quality
would no doubt boon lead to an in
crease of breeding and feeding opera
tions, besides relieving somewhat the
present heavy de;uand for beef, and
pork in the face of a short-supply."
