The increase In populutlon is the biggest cause of the scarcity of meat "We, have broken the grazing lands and turned them into farms and have made no other provision for the raising or animals Farms arc more productive than grazing lands.

If the laws against the slaughter ef veal became universal it would result In the greater production of beef for our consumption. The In dications aro at present that beef soon will pass off the bill of fare In the average home, unless con ditions change greatly.

Transients may come and go, but a large number attend the shows -year after year, missini: scarcely any. There's one citizen of Omaha who hasn't missed an Orpheum bin pUice the vaudeville house started sixteen years ago except for a few weeks at ihe time hia father died This Is Bert Hamill. His fourteenth birthday came on the day the Orpheum opened and by waj of celebration he took 10 cents of his birthday money and went to the vaudeville how. He a;it :-. the first row In the Kallery ami had the time of his young life applauding hiSflng and eating peanuts. Although he was only 14 he was already a seasoned theater goer. He first show, but It was at the old Far nam Street Theater, which burned down in '3. He then patronized pl us at the new Boyd and at th Oeighton which was the original of the present Orpheum and stock productions of the Woodward com pany, which played there in the summer Mr. HamiU sat In the gallery at the Orpheum for years, going every Monday night and waging a brUk war with the other boys to get the same seat In the first row which he had from the very start. As he grew more prosperous he worked down- from the gallery to the balcony and as he grew still more prosperous he began getting two cat8 instead of one. He still continues this custom. He always gets the name two seats in the first row in the balcony and always takes ... .nc b,ri. 11P -j, never sat downstairs In the theater and savs he has no depro tn. Until a few weeks ago he saved all his Orpheum programmes, but the collection numbering something over 800 slips got to be a nuisance so he had a big bonfire and burned them Great as Is his enjoyment of the shows, Mr. Hamill has never had even a touch of "stage strike." He de. lares that he has absolutely no parlor sticks and Is not a bit "am bitious along that line. He enjovj what the actors do from the open ing selection of the orchestra to the moving pictures at the close Of course, there were no movies when he first started going to the Orpheum and there have been many other additions and changes In the sixteen years. All of his old pals who used to inhabit the first row of the sallery with him are scattered over the country until he has completely lost track of them. 'The gallery hm't the same as It used to be," declared Mr. Hamill. "Tnere Isn't the same crowd there used to be. And then, hissing isn't allowed any more. There are signs forbidding it. Wo used to hiss when we didn't like an act. It's a lot quieter there now." He argues that a gallery god should be allowed to hiss what he doesn't like as well as applaud what he c-njoys. He saya that the same people have come year after year in the balcony since he's been sitting there. Occa sionally a face vanishes and e new one appears, but the changes -ome so slowly as to he scarcely notice able. He knows the names of hardly L . . any one who sits near him, but feels at home with them all. He savs that there's a spirit of comradeship among those who always sit In the same places on the same night There have been change. In the klnrl of shows themselves since Mr. Hamill began his career as a chronic theater goer. "There aren't so many acrobats as there used to he." he says. And the work gets finer and finer all the time. The actors change too as time goes on." A Wise Answer. Examining Admiral (to naval candidate) Now mention three great admirals. Candidate Drake.
