MEAT PRODUCERS DID FULL DUTY increase in American Hogs Will Help to Meet World Fat Shortage. FARMERS SAVE SITUATION. Government Justified in Stimulation of Pork Production—Sevenfold increase Over Pre- War Exports. Through increased production and conservation we will be able this year to export seven times our pre-war average exports of pork products. With the heavy demands added in car ing for the millions who have been freed from German oppression, the Department of Agriculture and the Food Administration are justified to day in our every action of stimulation of hog production. In the coming year the greatest world shortage will be in fats, and pork will Iflslp to save this situation. The efficacy of the policy of stimulated production has built up in this country supplies which will en able us to supply a very large part of the fat deficiency of the world. In beef there must be a shortage in Eu rope, due largely to limited refrigera tor ship capacity. All freezer ships available, however, will be filled by America, Argentine and Australia. The contribution made by the pro ducers of this country to the war pro gram as applying particularly to ani mal food products is illustrated by the following: Reports compiled by the U. S. De partment of Agriculture indicate an increase in cattle of 10,238,000 head and 12,441,000 hogs. These figures were compiled to January 1 last. In this period there was a decrease in sheep of 819,000 head. The indica tions are that this decrease will show an increase, according to recent re ports. Since January 1 unofficial informa tion indicates an increase in hogs of not less than 8 per cent, and not more than 15 per cent, as compared with one year ago, with an increase in the average weight. Following the request of the U. S. Food Administration for an increase in h*>g production for marketing in the fall of 1918 and the spring of 1919 the increase may yield not less than 1,600,- 000,000 pounds more of pork products than were available last year. With out this increase the shipping program arranged by Mr. Hoover regarding an imal food products would have been impossible. The dressed hog products during the three months ending September 30, 1917, amounted to 903,172,000 pounds, while for the corresponding months of 1918 the dressed hog products totaled 1,277,589(000, an increase of over 374,- 000,000 pounds for the quarter. During the same period for 1917 the records of inspected slaughter of dressed beef showed 1,263,000,000 pounds as against 1,454,000,000 pounds for the three month period ending September 1, this year. Our food Gospel eai less* serve less waste nothing America’s Pledge of Food Gave Heart to the Allies In Their Darkest Hour Whatever is necessary America will send. That was America’s pledge to the interallied food council. And be cause the American food army had hitherto made good they took heart and went forward. Farm enterprise and much soft com increased pork supplies, food conser vation increased exports —total ship ments doubled. FAITH JUSTIFIED BY EVENTS. I do not believe that drastic force need be applied to maim tain economic distribution and sane use of supplies by the great majority of American peo ple, and I have learned a deep and abiding faith in the intelli gence of the average American business man, whose aid we an ticipate and depend on to reme dy the evils developed by the war.—Herbert Hoover, August 10, 1917. Patriot’s Plenty Buy less - Serve less Eat on|y 3 meals a day Waste nothing \bur guests Will cheer fully simple fere Be Proud to be a food saver MAY MEAN MUCH TO WORLD Aviators Believe That Flying Is Bound to Have Great Influence on the Minds of Men. Flying, in the opinion of British aviators, is going to change the char acter of the world’s thought. It will have a broadening influence and it will bring a fresher, cleaner flow of ideas into the brains of men. A man, the flyers argue, who has seen before him at the same time the cliffs of England, the long flat fields of Holland and the smiling countryside of Belgium and France is bound to think in a different way than a man whose horizon has always been bound ed by bricks and mortar, or even by hill and dale. Traveling may have made him think nationally, but flying will make him think far more largely. He will see England and France lying close to each other, separated only by a shin ing strip of water. He will see the green and brown mosaic of Belgium, which in its turn merges into the dis tant shadow of Holland, wdiile, still farther on, across the wide Scheldt he will see the distant lowlands sweep on over the rim of the world. How will he regard petty spites be tween individuals and cliques then? the birdman asks. He can cover with his thumb from the heights a fever ish city swarming with a million peo ple. What will he think of those W'ho live next to each other and will not speak? How mean and petty their quarrels and jealousies and hates will seem. The true meaning of human inter course and friendship will come home to him. He will gain an almost divine outlook upon the world. Dishonesty, civil strife, all will seem to him contemptible. Perhaps, say the avia tors, this is the new view which will bring the millennium. NOTHING DOING FOR JOSEPH Might Be the Engineer, but Found He Had Little Control Over Steam Powers. Meekly made up his mind that he wasn’t going to be bossed any longer by his wife, so when he went home at noon he called out, imperiously: “Laura! Laura!” Mrs. Meekly came out of the kitchen with perspiration on her face, her hands covered with war flour, and a rolling-pin in her hand. “What do you want with Laura?” she asked. Meekly staggered, but braced him self up. “I want you to understand, madam” —and he tapped his breast dramatically—“that I am the engineer of this establishment, that Iam —■” “Oh, you are, are you? Well, Jo seph, I want you to understand that I” —here she looked dangerous—“l am the boiler that might blow up and sling the engineer over into the 1 next street. Do you hear the steam escap ing, Joseph?” Joseph heard, and prayed that he might be passed Grade 1 when he went before the medical board. —Lon- don Tit-Bits. Locating Ore Beds. Beds of ore are stated to have been located at a distance of two and a half miles by the electrical method patented in the United States by Pro fessor R. A. Fessenden. In the locality where the existence of valuable ores is suspected, a number of holes sev eral miles apart are bored, then filled with water, and a Fessenden sound os cillator is immersed in one as a trans mitting apparatus, the receiver sub merged in each of the other holes be ing an Einthoven recording oscillo graph. The holes may be five miles or more apart over the area being in vestigated. In the study of the oscil lograph records, special attention is given to the relation between sounds received direct and those from echoes, and it is found possible to get a fair idea of the character of intervening masses of rock and of the position and distance of neighboring deposits of ore. World's Greatest Soldier. Physically, Foch is a little man, his inches are about those of Napoleon, and he has Grant’s fondness for the cigar. Like Joffre, a southerner, he has frankness of speech which his old commander has never displayed. Un like Petain his words are rarely caus tic and he has made friends among all his allies. An old man, close to sev enty, yet younger than Clemenceau, he was still handsome when the war be gan, but the strain has marked his face and only his eyes reveal an un shaken spirit.—Frank H. Simonds in Metropolitan. Sing Sing Jail Short of Labor. The labor shortage has hit even Sing Sing, which has a stationary sup ply of 1,500 men. The officials are puzzled because they are unwilling to employ women. Although Warden Moyer has an allowance for a maid, he never has hired one. The only woman ever employed within the pris on ■. walls, a telephone operator, left after a few days, saying that there were too many men. Enterprising Alaskan Village. Noorvick, a native village near Nome, Alaska, is said to be the only Eski mo village In northern Alaska possess ing electric lights and a wireless plant. The light plant and wireless station were installed by Delbert Replogle, teacher at the Noorvick government school. Mr. Replogle, who was in Nome recently on his way to the States, said he left natives in charge of the improvements. Catarrh Cannot Be Cured with L*cal Applications, as they cannot reach the seat of the disease. Catarrh is a blood or constitutional disease, and in order to cure it you must take inter nal remedies. Hall’s Catarrh Cure is taken internally and acie directly ou the blood and mucous surfaces. Hall's Ca tarrh Cur* is not a quack medicine. It was prescribed by one of the best physi cians in this country for years, and isa regular prescription. It is composedof the best tonics known, combined with the beet, blood purifiers, acing directly on the mncon* surfaces. The perfect uomojnation of the two ingredients is what produces such wonderful results in curing Catarrh. Send for testimonials free. F. J. CHENEY & CO.. Props. Toledo. Ohio.
