Americans have been noted for the lavish and often reckless man ner in which they have used the na tional resources but, strangely, the vast resources of our seas and lakes have not been used as (the other na tions of the world use theirs. The people of the United Kingdom eat about sixty-five pounds of fish each, each year; Sweden, 52 pounds; Nor way, 44 pounds; Canada, 30 pounds, and the United States, 16 pounds. Our comparatively insignificant con sumption is due to sluggish demand and not to scarcity of fish. The seas adjacent to our shores are vast res ervoirs of food produced without ef fort on the part of man, and our Great Lakes hold unsurpassed stores of fresh-water fishes. We have at our command a greater variety of fine food fishes and shellfishes than any other country, but we do not use them as we must eventually, for in the future we must draw an ever increasing supply of our food from the waters as the land becomes less able to supply the needs of the in creasing population. TIT FOR TAT Mrs. Justwed—Those pearls make a lovely birthday gift. Thank you < so much. But T have a confession to make. This isn't really my twen ty-fourth birthday. I’ve always lied about my age. Her Husband—That’s all right. Those aren’t genuine pearls. DID NOT SUFFER MUCH. Beer was not so plentiful in Ger many during 1920 as before the war, not by half, and colfee was used to only one-third of the amount consumed in 1913, says the Nation s Business. The pre-war number of j cigars was cut in two, and only cigarettes showed a figure higher than in 1913. Altogether, however, Germany in 1920 spent 23,000.000,- j 000 of her depreciated marks for I beer, wine, coffee, tea and tobacco. j FATHER'S POSITION. “Father,” said a budding eight- j year-old, “do you know there are . 110 in our family?” “Don’t be silly, my boy,” replied the father. “There are only three.” “No! there are 110. Mother is one, I am one, and you come next.” ; TO MAKE CHANGES AT CONVICT FARM Minor Alterations Planned As Result of Recent In vestigation At the request of other members of the Arkansas Penitentiary Commission in the monthly meeting yester day, Mrs. Laura Conner of Augusta, the only woman member of the organization, submitted a list of sugges tions for the betterment of living conditions compiled on the report of her recent inves tigation. By consent of the com mission, Mrs. Conner, with the Rev. W. B. Hogg, recently made an investigation of the penitentiary system and their report was filed with the com mission yesterday. The principal suggestions were leniency in corporal pun ishment and non-use of the strap in light offenses, better cooking at one of the camps, better bathing facilities at all camps, elimination of vermin at one camp, better religious instruction at one of the farms, supplying all convicts with Bibles and the planting of orchards for the use of con victs at the farms. in discussing tne present system of punishment by lash ing with a strap, Mrs. Conner said that she considered the abolishment of the strap at present impracticable, but that the punishments should be made lighter. Mrs. Con ner said she did not hope to have all improvements made at once as some of them must wait on finances, but that the commission will establish ;hose which are needed at 3nce, and that others will be considered further at the next monthly commision meeting, rhe report commended high ly some of the wardens for :heir wrork and no charges were made against any war lien. The board spent the entire iay in disccussion of the sug gestions and in the consider ation of bills, etc., and post poned the matter of paroles; RAILROAD TIME TABLES, McCRORY, ARK.
