While the meat storage reports are conclusive proof o.f the shortage of meat animals that exists at this time the reports ast to the movements of live stock to markets are confirma tion of conclusive evidence. A shortage of meals in storage is always preceded by a lessened move ment of meat animals to market. The fact that there was approximate ly only 500,000,000 pounds of meats, including lard, in storage on Decem ber i, 1921, indicates that the meat supplies of the country have been diminished tremendously. Reports on the movement" of live stock to market during the month of November, 1021, as set forth in the Telegram recently, is even more startling in its significance than the storage reports, for the reason that they indicate decreases in the sup plies of meat animals 'on the farm, and when the source and origin of production are effected the finished meat supply can not but dwindle. . Forced liquidation, losfees in pro duction, when production costs have not been made, have, been the factors in curtailing- the meat supplies of the country. Increased runs of calves to market at this time will further tend to lessen the meat supply 12 months hence. The tendency to market, calves is brought about through the force of economic pres sure, as the profit that can be taken from .marketing a calf is assured, while bis feeding to good beef, over y a period of a year carrier with it a FRAZIERS 11 sow m POLAND CHINAS At Farm Adjoining Town on the North THURSDAY JJaunio 2(fMi 40 - Head of Tried Sows - 40 Fall Yearlings and Spring Gilts Bred to the Peacock, The Architect and Fs Giant For February and March Farrow Buy a pure bred sow now, when she will cost only a very little more than a scrub.
