Wholesale Meat Prices At present it would be interesting to the public to study the fresh meat prices, as charged by the Packers, to the retail markets. If we all understood conditions, we would often see things different. Take a dressed bog, as an example. The trade no loDger wants certain undesirable cuts at any price. . We are getting 10c per pound more for pork loins, or chops, than we are for shoulders, 6c more than we get for fresh hams. These three cuts are the onlyart of the hog wanted at all. This represents about half of the weight of the bog. The other half must be worked off for less than the net cost of the hog. There was a time when all parts of the beef and hog sold at only a small difference in price. Sttidy the meat business with us and always order Reynolds Packing House Products.

When in any city in which there have been established public play grounds It would be well worth the while of the visitor to go to one of theso parks and watch the children of every age enjoying an afternoon of healthful exercise and fun. The playgrounds are placed on va cant lots or parks in the center of neighborhood and during certain houis each day the swings, sliding boards, see-saws, basket ball court wading pool and various other games aro opened &nd the children of the city are welcomed. A supervisor is always present who directs the play of the children, especially seeing that each child has a share in some gaV.ie and keeping a clone watch to pre vent accidents. Wheiever playgrounds have been established officials and parents have been delighted with the result of both physical and moral development of the children. Besides the fun the young people enjoy, there i3 a very great benefit to be derived from the standpoint of health and character building. Children are given only tho most wholesome games that de velop their minds and bodies and in addition they learn to play unselfish ly and to respect the wishes of oth ers. To tired mothers the playground affords an opportunity for an after noon's relaxation, when they know they can send their little ones to play where they will be cared for - When Union City has a public playground it win not only be a much needed institution but will be welcomed most heartily by the chll dren and will add greatly to the at tractive and progressive air of the city.

Plans are being perfected by the Parent-Teachers -Association to se cure the services of a resident com munity nurse for Union City and vi clnity. This matter was taken up last December at a meeting'of citizens for discussion and generally ap proved. At that time a county nurse was suggested, but more recently it was decided that a burse is needed to give her whole timo to the communi ty including Union City and imme diate vicinity. The object in this ar ticle is to explain the duties of such a nurse and the scope of her work, A very important feature of tjiis work is infant welfare. Mortality among infant3 is sometimes excessive but oftentimes preventable if the mothers understood properly how to meet the emergencies of the situa tion. Another great branch of the work is the care a"hd prevention of tuberculosis. Oftentimes a nurse can find tubercular traces before the per son so infected is aware of the fact Another branch Is the work in the schools. In this of course the sight, hearing, the lungs and the general bodily condition are looked after. In all cases everywhere tho great fac tor in fighting disease is sanitation, especially in the schools. It is hoped also to have the nurse serve as truant officer. She is to coordinate with the health department of the territo ry embracing her work. Among otber things the communi ty nurse is to work in connection with, tho United Charities and church organizations id inking care of the poor. Her visits will include both white and colored, and she is to be found prepared for emergency vork From this it will be seen that such a nurse is not by any means a private nurse, as it is not possible to superin tend the work she is employed io do and. accept calls for private nursing. She will however answer emergency calls while preparations are being made to secure the services of a pri vate nurse. The community nurse Is to in struct classes in home nursing The recent experiences in the epidemic of influenza is an example of the work that Is needed to be done. An instance of tho need of a com munity nurse was the case last sum mer of typhoid fever in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Smith, across' the street from the Dahnke-Walker Milling Co. flour mill. The neighbors had tojitep in and take the children, and then financial circumstances prevented the employment of a private nurse. The family were wholly ignorant of the precautions to bo taken and the sanitary measures necessary. As a result the excretions were scattered over the back lot, the germs to bo distributed in the air and taken up by unsuspecting persons. This case and many others needed the services and the advice of a commu nity nurse. , Fulton, Hickman and Clinton have community nurses. The nurse at Hickman has been there for five years. The cost for a nurse at this point is estimated at $2500 a year, including office quarters and a Ford coupe. She is to make a charge or 50 cents for calb, payayblo, by hose who are able to afford her services. She is to call without chargo where the people are not able to pay the foe, and this fee is to be a part of the fund which goes into her salary. Theupport of the, church, fraternal andfiecular organizations in the city is solicited in thio work, as well as private subscriptions. A good start, Mrs. Miller tella us, has been made toward raising this fund, and no doubt it will be completed without burdening anybody. , It will indeed be worth more than mere dollars and cents to our people to have a community nurse, and once there is a general knowledge of the work to be accomplished very little effort vill be necessary to keep ouch nurse permanently with us.
