MORE AMERICAN SAILORS
SHIP FOR FOREIGN PORTS
Ne» York. Jan. 1.—There are approxi
mutely two and one half times as many
American sailors no» shipping for foreign
porte than at any time previous to the
ear. according to Dr George S. Web
iter, secretary of the American Seamen's
FYtend society. He attributes this In
crease partly to the increased wages be
ing given seamen and partly to the im
proved conditions under winch they are
Dr. Webster sa>
years have marked
increase in the number of Americans who
are shipping as sailors. At our sailors*
home on the North River waterfront, the
inen we had previously cared for were
almost entirely British. Swedish and Ger
man. If an American-horn sailor should
have mingled In with this company, he
would have been more or less conspicu
ous Today we frequently lodge American
sailors and they are practically all men
who had not seen service in the mer<3hant
marine prior to the outbreak of the war.
It is a very fair estimate to say that fully
two and one half times as many Amer
icans are now seafaring men as prior to
the war. We can no longer say that the
American is a hmd-luhber.
• We venture to predict at the Amer
ican Seamen's Friend society that the
proportion of the American-born sailors
to those of other nationalities will Im
mensely inrrease after the war In
there is a slight taps** in industrial
tivity, the seafaring life will doubtless
be of attraction to mam who have not
her etofnre considered ft."

steamed apple pudding for dinner.
For my special topic I have taken
the different cuts of beef which I hope

Cuts of Beef.
The feeding, care and age of an
animal do much to influence the qual
ity of meat. Good beef is obtained
from an animal four or five yeai
Reef should be firm, of a bright red
color, of fine grain and should ha
generous supply of suet. The suet
should be dry and easily crumbled.
Beef should not be used until two or
three weeks after killing.
The cost of meat varies, and this is
due to the greater demand for the ten
der meat. Of course, if there is not
enough tender ment to supply the de
mand the cheaper cuts are sold.
ertheless there is a greater de
mand for the tender meat.
The cheaper cuts contain as much
nutriment as the more expensive cuts
and are just as palatable If they are
properly cooked, which means at a
w temperature for a long while.
The following give the cut, price and
method of cooking:
