HIGH TAX ISSUE

on Campaign from Leaders

John T. Hamilton, business and
economy candidate for governor, is
mincing no words in his 'handling of
the high taxation issue in the present
campaign. In spite of the efforts of
opposition ntwspapers to direct his en
ergy along other'lines, Mr. Hamilton
is coming out squarely for less extrav

a businesslike and economical admin

A ROUGH GAME.
(The Monticello Express.)
The hard game of football claim
ed a victim, in Iowa, last Friday ev
ening. Albert Wiseman, aged 18, cap
tain of the Sac City football team,
died, at Lake City, of injuries re
ceived in a game during the after
noon of the day of his death. It is
reported that he is the second player,
from Sac City, to have'been killed
at Lake City, during a football game.
TheL other victim was Calvin Palmer,
who was. killed, five years ago, on
Thanksgiving day. Had this boyt
been killed in a prize fight,, there
would, have been a scream of horror
throughput the state, but football is
a school game, and as such, has re

leaders in the educational world. Nev

much, but they are not worth what
they'cos't in the lives, of. young men.
When you keep a boyi interested'
in football,' baseball, tennis, and the
like, you lessen the chances that .he
will get interested in things not so
good for him.
The Youth's Companion, since Its

to write for it.
How to practice to become a first

HOW TO USE CHEAPER MEATS.
'. In the November Woman's Home
Companion, Fannie Merritt Farmer,
cookery editor of that periodical
writes a highly practical and inter
esting article showing how there is
fiaore money for you and less for the
butcher when you use the cheaper
outs of meat. She gives recipes
showing how to use skirt steaks and
the aitch bone and she also gives re
cipes for Huntington ox joints and
roasted hamburg steak and beef stew
with dumplings. As to tlie compar
ative value of the cheaper and high
er priced cuts of beef she makes the
following general comment:
"For expert advice consult the bul
letin Issued by the Department of
Agriculture. The value of meat as
a food depends chiefly, of course, on
its protein and fat, which are valu
able in building and repairing the
tissues of the system. Yet the gov
ernment experts report that there is
uniformity in the proportion of
'building material' in the expensive
and Inexpensive cuts.
''The high-priced cuts of beef,'com
ing from those parts of the animal
where^here is little motion, have
short fibers, making tender meat,
while the cheaper cutg have long,
coarse. fibers, which need long, slow
cooking to make them tender enough
to be digested easily. This is where
the cook shows her skill, for the dif
ferent cuts need different treatment."
