FOR m TAXES Why the Aden Man Failed To Get His Food Tram Carried It Past TheL Tl T T" r fi riace l wice -rJetore Delivering It. explanation of why J. C. O'Connor, of Aden, did not get his bacon, vegetables and fruits ordered from EI Paso by parcels post, has been made. It is very simple. It was no body's fault except the postoffice de partment and Its system generally. Aden, be it known, ts only a flag station. Trains stop there only when somebody has to get off or get on The mail is pouched and tossed off the train as It passes by. In the case of insured parcels post articles, they can only be put off. it is explained, when the train stops. In vestigation has shown that the bacon, vegetables and fruit placed in the El Paso postoffice August 5, by the Standard Grocery company, went west that day out of the EI Paso office, but as the train was not flagged at Aden, and as a receipt was necessary before the package could be de livered by the mail clerk, he had to take it on west. He turned it over to the first east bound mail clerk he met, to be put off m event of the train being flagged. The east bound man was not flagged, so he brought it oacK tnrougn Aden to Kl Paeo- Next day another west bound train took it out and, as somebody wanted get on or off at Aden, the train stooped and the mail clerk had a chance to deliver the package. Mean time, tne xooa nag spoil ea. Under the law. parcels post must be accepted for any postoffice. But the postoffice department has no orders that would make trains stop at flag stations to put off such pack ages, hence the goods frequently ride back and forth past the place they are intended for, it is said, just as this package did, and when they spoil the United States has to pay for them and the man who depends upon the parcels post has to do without his stuff.

The problem of caring for migra tory tuberculosis cases, is one of the most perplexing situations now con fronting the Texas Public Health as sociation, according to George F. Granger, field secretary of that as sociation. Mr. Granger states that many of the small towns of the trans Pecos section are overrun with per sons suffering from tuberculosis. Mr. Granger announced that the public health association is attempting to aid tubercular patients by providing homes for them in towns located in high altitudes of west and 'southwest Texas. A plan with this object in view Is now beinjj considered by state officials. Mr. Granger left Wednesday for Al pine, where he will make a survey of the migratory consumptive problem there. Recent Hi vestigations have dis closed the fact that hundreds of per sons having tuberculosis have gone to Alpine and many are now in a desti tute condition.

Santos Gomez and Nicolosa Hernan dez Wilfred Spooner and Wonda Gauld- Ing. nil a r a M N Live stock is a seasonal crop like cereals and grains. It is" ripe" and is marketed in larger quantities in certain months. This causes a natural oversupply at one time and a natural shortage at another. During the time of oversupply Swift & Company places some of the meat in cold storage, against the season of short production. This is a necessity in order that the nation's ration of meat 58,000,000 pounds every day in the year may be forthcoming as the consumer requires 'ib. This is not hoarding, not price manipulation, not market control. It is mere common sense. United States Bureau of Markets' figures of stocks of frozen and cured meats July 1 are being used as a basis for Department of Justice investigations in many cities. When properly analyzed, based on Swift & Company's stocks, these figures show: 62 per cent (approximate) is pork end beef cuts, etc., cured and in process of curing. It takes -30 to 90 days in pickle or salt to complete the curihg-process. 12 per cent is frozen pork, of which more than three quarters is to be cured in the next few months. 7 per cent is lard. This is a normal supply and 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, and miscellaneous meats, part of which is owned by the Government and was intended chiefly for overseas shipment. If this were all diverted to domestic trade channels it would be only 2 lbs. per capita a 5 days' supply. 100 fo ' From this it will be seen that "meats in storage" represent unfinished goods in process of curing and the working supply necessary to assure the consumer a steady flow of finished product.
