The Price of
Pork Chops and Bacon
Here are reasons why the fine,
fresh pork tenderloins and pork chops,
or savory ham, or crinkly bacon, which
you enjoy for breakfast, cost much more
per pound than the market quotation on
live hogs which you read in the newspaper:
An average hog weighs 220 pounds.
Of this, only 70 per cent (154 pounds)
is meat and lard.
So, when we pay 15^ a pound for live hogs, we
are really paying more than 21/ a pound for the meat
which we will get from these animals, even after
taking into account the value of the by-products. .
But people show a preference for only one-third
of the whole—the pork chops, fancy bacon, and choice
cuts from juicy hams.
This means that when we are selling Premium
bacon at 43 V 2 ^ per pound wholesale and Premium
hams at 30£, there are other parts for whioh we
get as low as 6/ or 8^ per pound. The net result is
an average profit to us of less than 1/ a pound.
The choice cuts are higher because of a demand
for them.
Another thing: Only 35 pounds of the entire hog
—or about 1/6 th—is usually marketed at once. The rest
must be pickled, cured, or smoked. This takes
months, and adds to the costs which must be met.

THE MONKEY MAN
Since the dawn of that first uncertain day men have sought a way by which they might add
a few days to the proverbial "three score years and ten," and science and better living have really
added a few years to the span of life.
But now comes the ingenious Frenchman of science and seeks to take the glands of the young
and graft youth upon old age, to cause the green shoot to spring from the sear and faded leaf.
As the Monkey is the most closely related of all animals to man, science would rob the monkey
of the gland of youth that man might no longer turn his face to the west but would again look to
the east.
Since the memory of man runneth not to the contrary, men have been making monkeys of
themselves, but now men of science would make men of monkeys.

Why VarnWi Tree la Dreaded.
Varnish is produced in China from a
tree commonly spoken of as the var
nish tree, but known botanically as
Rhus vemlcifera, which is found in
abundance in the mountains of
Hupeh, Kweichew and Szechwan.
The varnish is taken from the tree
after It is about six indies in diame
ter by tapping at intervale of from
five to seven years, until the tree be
fifty or sixty years of age. A good
sized tree will yield from five to seven
pounds of varnish.
The natural color of the crude var
nish as applied is black. It is consid
ered the most indestructible varnish
known. One peculiarity is that it
hardens only in a moist atmosphere.
In China it is erroneously known
among the foreign communities as
"Ningpo varnish," probably because
It first came into contact with foreign
trade here.
Many persons are poisoned when
they come into even atmospheric con
tact with this varnish, which fact, un
fortunately, reduces its trade possi
bilities enormously. A*s yet no method
has been discovered whereby this
poisonous quality can be counteracted,
an exchange states.

Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets are made

New Orleans, La.:—"When I was
S uite a young girl I was troubled a great

aches. My mother used several of Dr.
Pierce's remedies and she gave me the
'Pleasant Pellets' until they eventually
cured me of all liver trouble and head
aches. For quite a number of years I
have had no return of these ailments, but
have been in a perfectly healthy and

How S c r e w Propeller Bot
Those who still marvel at the screw

It is less than a century ago the first
screw steamer crossed the Atlantic.
This was Brunei's remarkable vessel.
"Great Britain," an early experiment
In iron shipbuilding. The screw was
put in as an afterthought, the paddle
engines having already been partly
made when the great engineer decided
to try his luck with the new propeller.
After three crossings the Great Britain
lay stranded off the Irish coast for
eleven months, but her iron skin kept
her Intact until reflqated. Thus was
started the boom In iron and In pro
