How much should I give to make this a better world? A CERTAIN man in New York filled out hia income tax report. It showed an income so large that his tax was 53%. And hia total gifts to church and char ity for tha year were $l4B. ' Think of it —thousands spent for hixuaes and pleasure for himself; and $l4B to leave foe world . a little better than he found itl Most of us do better than that; but not so very much better. Our average daily gift for all fchurch causes is —fees than we spend for daily papers lies than a local Sale phone call —lass than a third of the dap's ear fere * - lees tha 3 cants a day No wonder that 80$ of foe ministers of America an paid leas than $2O a week. No wonder that the church hospitals turn away thousands of sick people a year. No wonder that China has only one doctor for every 400,000 people. No wonder that every church board and charity society is forever meeting deficits, forever passing foe hat. It isn't, because we ate selfish; it isn't bananas wa j • don't want to help.

How to Lower Your Meat Bills Hints From foe Department of Justice HIGH LIVING ON LOW-PRICBD ■BAT. **l don't see bow you feed a family of five and pay ao little for meat,** said Mrs. Smith to Mrs. Jones who stood just over the back fence. For Mm Jones always served appetizing dishes of fresh meat, apparently in endless variety, and die never bad big meat bills. "I’ll show yon how I do It.” said Mrs. Jones to Mm Smith. "If you come out here every day this week we’ll compare notes and find out the way to reduce meat bills and yet live as well If not better than ever.” Monday’s morning conference at the back fence discussed Sunday din ner which lire. Jones had made from 8% pounds of chuck beef, a little oleo margarine, seasoning, and trimmings prepared as pot roast. The leftovers went Into beef croquettes and were enough for Monday’s dinner. "It cost me, at 20 cents a pound. Just 70 cents for good meat for two meals for five people," said Mm Jones. Tuesday’s report showed a bill of 75 cents for three pounds of spare ribs, out of which Mm Jones had pre pared a full meal of sauerkraut and spare ribs in this manner: She put sparerlbs in boiling water aalted with one-half tablespoonful of salt and cooked until meat began to separate from the bones. and arranged on a platter, surrounded with border of sauerkraut, on# cupful of which had been previously heated. On Wednesday Mrs. Jones described how she had fried a pound and a half of calf's liver, costing 60 cents with onions and celery: 1% pounds calfs liver, 4 tablespoonfuls oleomargarine, 4 tablespoonfuls diced celery. 4 tablespoonfuls onions cut up floe. Seasoning. She said* "I put four tablespoon fuls of oleomargarine, four of diced celery, four of onions cut up fine and seasoning Into a pan; the liver sauted in this sauce and served pip ing hot. I saved the leftovers for creamed meat” On Thursday she had cooked chopped beef In a baking dish, two pounda of hamburger costing 32 cents. The leftover went into creamed meat enough for Friday. "It can’t be done,” exclaimed Mm Smith, bat Mrs. Jones furnished proof In the form of these recipes: How to Lower Your Meat Bills Hints From foe Department of Justice HOUBBWIVBB BUY LAMS AND MUTTON UNWIBKLY. The Bat More Lamb campaign which Is being conducted throughout the country at the present jtlme before col leges, domestic science schools, wom en's dobs,’ various Institutions, public schools, meat markets, etc., has brought before the general public the value of lamb as a food product, but especially has It demonstrated the value and economy of the cheaper cuts of lamb which have been neglected. It has been a contention of the retailer for years that a great part of the fore quarter—the neck, shoulder, shank and breast—must be sold at a loss or eventually reach the scrap or bone box. Some retail butebers bone out these cheap fore-quarter cuts, put them through the meat grinder, season them and mold them up Into lamb patties, putting a strip of bacon around each one, leave them in the cooler over night and sell all of them next day at good prices. Many butchers could *°ll more than they can supply. The butch er has thus turned Into an asset or profitmaker that portion which has heretofore been considered a loss. Steaks and roasts van be had from the shoulder, lamb rolls from the neck, breast and shoulder, and neck slices are obtained by cutting the neck In sections crosswise, so that the meat has the appearance of chops and is a very inviting dish when used as a stew or potted lamb en casserole. The cheap er cuts of lamb are made from the breast, shoulder, shank and neck which combined are about 18 per cent of the lamb. Lamb is a healthful food for all peo ple. It is very nutritious, wholesome and palatable and in caloric value It is equal er superior to any other meat. The boned and rolled shoulder men tioned above is used for roasting pur poses; It can also be,cut to any 4*-. sired weight or can be sliced Into Saratoga chops. United States government statistics tel! us that each year the average housewife buys for every person in her household only about 5 pounds of ' lamb as compared with about 71 pounds of pork and 67 pounds of beef. If all American families used lamb one day a week It would mean more < than 20 ponnda of lamb annually per ' capita, or four times the present con- i sumption. * More than that, the head of the fam- 1 Uy, who paya the bills, would no doubt i Chopped Beef. 2 pounds hamburger ground^ H cupful tomato relish, % teaspoonful tabasco sane* 1 can beets.

Add one half can plmentoes chopped, one green pepper and two and one-half cupfuls of white sauce made from flour, evap orated milk, water, oleomargarine and seasoning. Serve on rounds of toast Saturday's meal was prepared by Mrs. Jonea out of two and one-half pounds of flank steak for which she paid 65 cents, and which came on the table stuffed with bread crumbs, vegetables and seasoning. "Now,” said Mrs. Jones, "let's add up and see what the week’s mast sup ply has cost.” This was what aba fig ured: 8% lbs. beef chuck at....*20 $ .70 3 lbs. sparerlbs at .28 .78 1 % lbs. calf's liver at 40 40 2 lbs. hamburger steak at AC 42 2U lbs. flank steak at.... .26 j 66 SB4O "Soma saving!” said Mrs. Smith. "Do you know what I have been pay ing for the same amount of flood value, and not as much variety at that?” She Jotted down her own ex penditures for a week which were these: Monday—l% lbs. rib lamb chops at $.50 $ 47 Tuesday—2 lbs. sirloin at .42 44 Wednesday—2% lbs. beef roast (prime ribs) at.. .40 LOO Thursday—lV4 lbs. veal off leg at 48 jO7 Friday— lbs. pork ten derloin at .55 42 Saturday—lH lbs. calf sweetbreads at .55 40 Sunday—3H lbs. cblcksn at .45 L 57 $647 (These prices were accurate at the time this article was prepared. The market may have varied a few cents up or down since that time.) encourage purchasing the cbeepet lamb cuts instead of merely a few chops at a time. A shoulder of lamb, being smaller than the average beef Joist and leas expensive, should ap peal especially to small famines. The marketing expeditions should be an education In economy. It usually pays to shop before you buy. It usually pays to do your marketing personally rather than telephone youi order. Lamb steaks and lamb chops take bnt a few moments to cook, but they are the moat expensive cuts. Aa ai lamb Is not all chops and steaks, other end less expensive parts of the animal must be used and can be made Into tasty dishes. Breast of lamb con tains more meat than bone, yet it often sells for half the price of pork spare ribs, and some retailers on account of a limited demand for the fore-quarter cuts find It necessary to convert these cheaper cuts Into sausage In order to sell them at all. LsmtA la a somewhat seasonable meat, by far the greater part of live lambs reaching the market during the latter half of the year. In the spring sround Easter time, lamb may be as high or higher than other meats. In the fall und early winter It la nearly always much cheaper. The following average prices com piled by the National Wool Growers’ association from representative re tailers throughout the country show comparative levels of the different meats in the fall season as they oc curred in the middle of October, 1019. These figures are not applicable now, except that they emphasize a typical relationship: Lamb —Leg, 87 cents; loin. 44 cents; shoulder, 27 cents; rib chops, 46% cents. Sheep—Leg, 29 cents; loin, 28 cents; shoulder, IQ.V& cents; chops, 35 ccQia Pork—Loin, 43 cents; fresh ham, 38 cents. Beef—Sirloin, 45 cents; porter house, 48 cents; tenderloin, 50 cents; ronud steak, 8* cents. These prices were for the best-qual ity meats in all cases. Mutton Btow With Barley.

It has been, stated that people are as Ignorant of the sire of the sea as they are of matters dealing with astronomy. Few are aware, for instance, that the Pacific ocean covers 08,000,000 miles; the Atlantic 30.000,000 miles, and the Indian ocean, Arctic, and Antarctic 42,000,000. To stow away the contents of the Pacific It would be necessary to fill a tank one mile long, one mile wide, and one mile deep, every day for 440 years. Put in figures, the Pacific holds In weight 084.000.000000 000 000.000 tons. The Atlantic averages a depth of not quite three miles. Its waters weigh 323.000,000.000,000,000,000 tons, and a tank to contain It would have each of its sides 430 miles long. FATHER AND SON MAKE EQUALLY GOOD By a peculiar coincidence in which the romance of business figures inter estingly, two of the great develop ment works now in progress in Delta county, though of widely different character, are the fruition of the la bors’ of father and son. The father, £1 W. Center, is the moving spirit In the formation of the new Anthracite Fuel company which is to open this season the anthracite properties in Buck Basin, fifteen miles from Somerset, up the Muddy river. Being impressed with the feasibility to transportation by rail through the North Fork valley, he is giving generously of his time and en ergies to bring about the immediate construction of a line from Somerset to connect with the Crystal River road on the east side of McClure Pass. The son, Albert L. Genter, is the inventor of the new process of sugar making which is to be installed in the new factory now under construc tion at Delta. Ho is a graduate of the Royal Technical Institute in Ber lin. Germany, and a chemical and metallurgical engineer of internation al renown. His achievements early brought him to the attention of the great concern which manufactures beet-sugar-making machinery and for several years, until the outbreak of the war, he was engaged in supervis ing the installation of American made machinery for this purpose in the sugar mills of Germany, Russia, France, Belgium, and Holland. Upon his return to his native land he continued his investigations, with the result that he brought out a pro cess radically different in principle from accepted standards. An exper imental plant at Sterling, Colorado, has been Ihe scene of his latest suc cesses, and after viewing his work there experts from all over the world have pronounced his Invention the un doubted supercessor of present equip ment The virtues which appeal most strongly to the investors are, of course, the fact that the new method recovers a larger percentage of sugar and pperates at a consider ably less expense. This is the pro* cess which is to be installed In the Delta factory, hence our county seat will be a point of unusual Interest to technical experts in this branch of industry and commerce. Though comparatively a young man, he la scarcely yourijger than hia father, for the coal operator states with jus tifiable pride that he and his three eldest sons, "grew up together/’ The home of the Genter families is Salt Lake City, though the family of the head of the house has been in south ern California for more than a year. —P&onian. , Cmtftrrh Cannot Bm Cured With LOCAL.
