Every working day of the year
75 000,000 pounds of meat are required

only 10 per cent of this is exported. |: ; i

These facts must be kept in mind
I; j
when considering the U. S. Bureau of
Markets report that on June 1 1919,
there were 1,348,000,000 pounds of

meats in coki storage If the meat in
storage was placed on the market it
would only be 20 days' supply. I
This meat is not artificially withheld

Meats in storage consist of—
-65 per cent (approximate) hams, bacon, etc.,
in process of curing. It takes 30 to 90
lif days in pickle or salt to complete the

process.

10 per cent is frozen pork that is to be cured
|il later in the year.
6 per cent is lard. This is only four-fifths
of a pound per capita, and much of it will
have to go to supply European needs.
19 per cent is frozen beef and lamb, part of
which is owned by the Government and
was intended chiefly for over-seas ship
ment. If this were all diverted to domes
tic trade channels, it would be only
lYz lbs. per capita—a 3 days’ supply. J
From this it will be seen that*‘meats

Bedouins eating in their camp near Bagdad, one of the greatest cities in
all the old Turkish empire. The Bedouins are wandering clans who seldom
stay more than one year in the same locality. Their half Gypsy life will not
be much changed by British or allied rule in Mesopotamia. Mesopotamia's
farm lands now produce food enough for less than a million people. With
modern irrigation methods in the Tigris and Euphrates valleys the region
could feed twenty million people.
MOSQUITOES
Pesl Which Causes Suffering and
Annoyance
———l ■ HUM I ■ ■inriwiß II ■ ■ wiiimi
Mosquitoes are man’s inveterate tor
menvoi's and foes. At the seaside, on
the undrained prairies of the West and
Northwest, in the far North, by wood
land pool and mountain meadow these
bloodthirsty brigands in countless
myriads waylay the individual on busi
ness or pleasure bent
Swamps, ponds and marshes, how
ever. are not the only places which
breed mosquitoes. A little rain water
in an old tin can or uridrained roof
gutter, if neglected, will supply mos
quitoes for a town or city neighbor
hood, spreading discomfort, causing
insomnia and tempting to profanity.
If mosquitoes were merely a bother
some plague, there would he ample
■justification for unrelenting warfare
against them, hut when it is consid
ered that several species scattered
over the United States disseminate ma
laria, rendering many legions of great
fertility almost uninhabitable, and
that one kiiid of mosquito found in the
South will convey yellow fever, no ar
gument for lighting them i accessary.
Loganberry Juice May Soon
Become Popular Among the
“Soft” Drinks in Demand
“Soft drinks” — “soft” in sbmg mean
ing “easy to get”—may attain new im
portance. Soft drinks made from
fruit juices doubtless will at tract many
new devotees, who will find that bev
erages made from pure fruit juices are
j decidedly healthful, cooling, refresh
ing and invigorating, says tin* United -
States department of agriculture.
Because of its pleasant flavor, the
1 juice of the Logan blackberry, com
• monly known as the loganberry, is
very popular as a beverage. The berry
j is also used in making jams, jellies
1 and soda-fountain sirups. Methods of
J extracting and treating the juice are
! constantly being bettered. This in
| dusrtry. already a large one. is growing
i rapidly.
I Loganberry juic<* is naturally so sour
j that it is necessary both to dilute and
i to sweeten it to obtain a drinkable
article. The berry has a characteristic
flavor. It somewhat resembles that of
the raspberry, both red and black, but
is more acid than either.
Adding enough sugar to reduce suffi
ciently the tartness of the juice makes
Ia product 100 slrupy to drink, unless it
j is diluted at the same time. The sirup
i prepared for soda-fountain use is not
| diluted until sold over the counter,
i Some of the sweetened but undiluted
juices have been labeled by manufac
turers as “concentrated.” This de
scription is unwarranted, as the juices
have not been concentrated or evupo
t rated, but simply sweetened. They
should be properly labeled as logan
\ berry sirups.

Lowly Angle Worm an Aid
in Fertilizing the Soil,
an Authority Declares
That the despised angle worm, which
for ages has been the choice food of
the robin, the terror of “Little Miss
Muffets” and the joy of fishermen, has
all this time been working for the
benefit of mankind without any par
ticular credit is an interesting fact
brought to light.
According tb .Prof. Frank Smith of
the University of Illinois, who is an
authority in this country on angle
worms, most of the real grounds for
complaint against the angle worm is
due to an introduced species which is
common in the northern tier of states.
There are few infected areas, some of
which have their origin, traced hack
to accidental importation by the tnite
plantation of trees from northern Illi
nois. These worms are of large size
and have the habit of pulling leaves
and small twigs into the mouths of
their burrows, and together with the
earth brought tip by them, they form
the little mounds which make the sur

face of a lawn quite rough, and hence
they make mowing more difficult.
Professor Smith states that apart
from the roughness of the surface of a
lawn, the results of their work Is
doubtless beneficial. An earth worgri
makes its burrow from one to three
feet in depth, these burrows providing
means for conveying surface water to
deeper layers, and also for aerating
these layers, in this work they have
been important agents in making the
soil fertile through t lie years.

Swallows Feed Almost
Entirely Upon bisects
If you want to free the neighborhood
of mosquitoes, encourage swallows to
make themselves at home, says a re
port of the American Forestry asso
ciation. These birds feed almost en
tirely upon obnoxious insects and they
will do much toward protecting or
chards and other trees from insect
pests. No better investment can be
made, therefore, than some houses set
out for martins or other swallows. Of
the blue swallows the purple martin is
the largest, the male being entirely
blue above and below, while the female
is blue above with a gray breast. Swal
lows are highly migratory, most of
them spending the whiter in South
America. v

Locusts as Food Date
Back to the Days of John
the Baptist, and Others
It was not necessary for a learned
entomologist in the Johns Hopkins fac
ulty to prove the edibility of locusts by
eating a few of them arid surviving the
experiment. For unnumbered centu
ries these insects have been an occa
sional. hut considerable, part of the
diet of millions of people in several
parts of the world, and if ever those
people hear rtf the Johns Hopkins man’s
exploit they will smile superiorly and
wonder tK the helatedness of his au
dacity. The history of John the Bap
tist is not the only recorded instance
in which empirical persons have anti
cipated the scientist.
Of course, locusts are edible; so are
hundreds of other insects —thousands
of them, probably —and if might not
be at all Injudicious at this time, when
so much of the world's population Is
going hungry, if more attention were
bestowed on what is. alter all, the
largest of new food sources. Still, the
locusts in this country tire not in much
danger as a result of the professors
revelation, oven though he does say
that they taste like shrimp.
Dancing. Saturday Night
Program for Haitians in
Their Little Villages
Dancing to the music of a drum, sax
ophone and flute is the chief source of
amusement for Haitians in their little
villages on Saturday night, according
to an article by William Alinon \Volff
in Collier’s Weekly. Beginning tit sun
down every Saturday night, he writes,
one will come to a wine shop, if one
follows the sound of the drum. The
drummer sits outside. His unceasing
drumming marks the rhythm of the
music; what melody there is. is borne
by a flute, and almost always there
Is a saxophone. The music is the same
at every dance. It is in common time;
a single cadence Is repeated, over and
over again.
Dancing in Haiti resembles the satur
nalia among the Australian aborigines,
Mr. Wolff writes. The dancers are
frank and unashamed, and one gets
little or no feeling of a personal note
between the two one sees dancing;
rather they are staging a spectacle.

Save the Babies
INFANT MORTALITY is something frightful. We can hardly realize that
of all the children born in civilized countries, twenty-two per cent.,
or nearly one-quarter, die before they reach one year; thirty-seven
per cent., or more than one-third, before tney are five, and one-halt before
they are fifteen!
We do not hesitate to say that a timely use of Castoria would save
many of these precious lives. Neither do we hesitate to say that many
of these infantile deaths are occasioned by the use of narcotic preparations.
Drops, tinctures and soothing syrups sold for children’s complaints contain
more or less opium or morphine. They are, in considerable quantities,
deadly poisons. In any quantity, they stupefy, retard circulation and lead
to congestions, sickness, death. There can be no danger in the use of Cas
toria if it bears the signature of Chas. H. Fletcher yj
as it contains no opiates or narcotics of any kind, [<*

nothing that will supply this deficiency
o well as the organic phosphate known

Increase In weight also carries with It
a general improvement in the health.
