It persisted even after the industrial reaction began. "Rut last month there was a reversion to the heavier meats on the part of maii consumers. There was a strong demand on the wholesale trade for heavy, skinned hams, and for heavy, dry salt baekon cuts, and picnic hams. "A better trade for the less expensive cuts is a salutary thing from the view point of producer; packer and consumer alike. It tends t distribute the demand over all cuts from the meat animal, and makes for more economical and stable merchandising." P.KITISH HEAT AMERICANS.

THINNING ARMY OFFICERS. Secretary Weeks Wants to Eliminate in competents from Military Service. WASHINGTON. June 5. Secretary Weeks has issued orders to the heads of all branches of the army, calling for the elimination of officers who do not meas ure up to military standards of efficiency. Under the instructions given, officers who cannot give satisfaction in one branch of the service will be tried out in some other branch, and those who fail to meas ure up in any of the positions! to which they are assigned will become, subject to small pay under the provisions of a re cent law. In an explanatory statement," the war department said in part: "The basic principle in making as signments is to have the risht officer in the right place. The best interests of. the service should always be paramount j in deciding this question, ami it usually j requires a study ot rue onicer s wnoic record to determine it. "There is now a law providing for the elimination of inefficient officers, and the' blame must rest entirely uon the army if we retain this class of officers on ac tive duty."
