Camp Meeting Grounds, Tindall's
Grove, Sept. 1. According to the opin
ion of many, the best camp meeting
in years came to a close Sunday even
ing at Tindall's grove south of Milan.
Although the weather .was threatening
in the morning and kept a great many
away yet the afternoon and evening
congregations were large. Fully 750
people were on the grounds In the
afternoon and nearly 5010 in the evening.
The services were very good through
out the day. The morning sermon,
preceded by a song service, was an in
spiring one. The people began to
come early in the afternoon and by the
time the bell tapped for the afternoon
service the tabernacle was filled and
the seats were soon filled outside. The
best song service of the encampment
was then given by Rev. Mr. Dixon and
his well trained choir. For 45 min
utes the people listened to special se
lections by the choir, the preachers'
quartet and a mixed quartet. At the
close of the song service Rev. A. Jag
gers, the president, presented the
budget for the year. There was a
debt of J200 from last year and the
expenses of the meetings added over
$200 more; $200 had been raised at
the meeting of the association Saturday
and in a little while $275 was raised
Sunday. Evangelist Dunlop then
preached the closing sermon from
these words: "Create in me a clean
heart, O .Lord." For nearly an hour
he held the close attention of his
hearers as he depicted the condition
of man's heart and life. At the close
of the sermon five people came for
ward to renew the Christian life or
seek the pardon of their sins. Two
more came later and nearly a score of
people signified their intention of lead
ing a Christian life or renewing their
vows during the encampment.
The president took charge after Even
eelirt Dunlop bad finished his sermon
and in a few words gave direction for
the grand march around the grounds
and the closing services. The president
and the chorister led the march, all
singing "We're Marching to Zion," as
they filed into the tabernacle and
formed in line, each shaking hands j
with tne otner as they passed by. They
formed in line around one side of the
tabernacle and down the center aisle,
then all joined hand and sang "Blest
be the, tie that binds our hearts in
Christian love." There followed a
number of testimonies from the peo
ple as to the gpod they had received
during the meeting. After singing
"Praise God from Whom all blessings
flow," Evangelist Dunlop pronounced
The one word on everybody's lips
was "the best camp meeting in years."
Special mention should be made of
the services of Miss Nora A. Corette,
who has won the hearts of the people
as has no one else. Her bible read
ings were excellent. The bible was
explained in such simple and compre
hensive language that all could under
stand. The children's services have
been the attraction of the camp meet

LET THE WOMEN REGISTER
Rock Island, Sept. 2.
Editor of The Argus: September 11
will be held the first municipal elec
tion siuce suffrage was granted the-j
women of Illinois.
Week before last an opportunity was
given the women of Rock Island to
register. A good number registered;
quite a number missed having their
names enrolled because it w-as under
stood that the registering places would
be open till 6 o'clock, whereas the
now. We do not know exactly how
it is done, but we will learn together.
The smiles of the judges at our ignor
ance will not hurt us. It will be much
easier to go this time when all are be
ginners than to wait till another elec
tion, and have to learn the mode of
procedure when most of the other
women are familiar with 'it.

ECONOMY IN MEAT BITING.
The scientific cooking of meat in
America is still in its infancy. The
methods used have been the ones
handed down from the grandmothers.
or those devised by unskilled cooks.
neither one of which is likely to lead j
to great advancement. j
In its higher development the cook
ing has followed the English method
of developing the flavor inherent in
the meat, and this method has been
more or less successful because our
supply comes from an abundance of
well-fed, well-matured animals, but
cooking to preserve flavor and all nu
tritive value is just being carefully
considered. If only from an ethical
standpoint, It is absolutely essential
to know just how many ounces of our
roast are lost in the cooking. Manu
facturers are very much alive to this
in building new ovens.
The most extended scientific work
on the cooking of meat.; has been car
ried on at the University of Illinois.
At that institution Professor H. S.
Grindley, with a corps of able assis
tants, has been working since 1904 on
some of the problems of cooking meat.
His series of experiments were un
dertaken with the thought of studying j
the composition of the diSferent cuts
of meat from the housekeepers stand
point, to determine what cuts will
furnish the most edible meat for a
given amount of money.
No unusual fuel or utensils were
used for the tests but those which
would be practical for every-day use
in the home. But very accurate rec
ords were made in the cooking of
various cuts with their conclusions 'of
the same. These are based on the
study of forty-one cuts taken from five
First The highest percentage of
edible meat was obtained from the
beet loaf. Loaf made from neck and
chuck was a cent or two cheaper than
that made from plate and flank.
Second The amount of waste' fat
was small in the beef loaf, because
a large amount of it was held in the
loaf by the added ingredients, making
the fat become edible meat. This made

And then when Sept. 11 comes, vote.

the total cost per pound of edible meat
lower than in any other cut, even at
the same price for the butcher's
Third Braised round Is an Inexpen
sive meat with practically no loss ex
cept that of evaporation. It costs only
a few cents more per pound than beet
Fourth Boiled rib end Is usually
an expensive meat because a large
percentage is lost in wasted fat. The
finished product Is not desirable, from
the housekeeper's standpoint, as that
of other cuts. All of its possibilities
are found in the round and at less ex
penditure of money and time.
Fifth Rib roast gives a fair share
of fine meats at an average price.
The indications are that the amount
of waste fat increases as the
cut approaches the loin. The chuck
rib roast will possibly yield the high
est percentage of edible meat, but the
quality of the meat may not be so
good. The best rib roasts as to Juici
ness were those made from the elev
enth and twelfth ribs.
Sixth Porter house, either as roast .
or as steak, is a most expensive meat,
largely because of its usual excessive
loss in waste fat.
Seventh The loss by evaporation
is greatest in lean meats and least In
excessively fat meats. It is also great
er in small cuts than in large ones.
Eighth Long cooking increases
the loss in evaporation of water and
in the loss of fat.
Ninth The fatter the animal the
lower the percentage of loss In bone.
An apparent exception to this rule ex
ists in the loin cuts from the lean cow
when compared with fat steers. This
is probably due to skeletal differences
based on sex or breed.
Tenth Bone loses weight In cook
ing. The percentage of bone in the
standing rib roasts, roasted with the
bone left In, is not so high as that
originally in the rolled rib roasts that
were boned before roasting. It was
not determined whether this is due to
water loss only or whether other sub
stances are also lost to the meat from
the bone in cooking.
Eleventh The juiciness of the
roast seems to be directly proportion
ed to the amount of fat it contains.
Twelfth The fat roasts of this ser
ies are of higher flavor than the lean
The coming Thursday another op
portunity will be given to register, the
last before the election, and on that
day the officials will be on duty from
early morning till 9 o'clock at night.
