Economical Use of Meat. The big meat packers are an nouocing that they are going to start en advertising campaign to t each the public bow to use meats ecomicaily. If there is not much demand for a particular cut of meat w bich has a good food value, it is proposed to educate the public up to using it. This is such a sensible idea, that it is a wonder it was nev er tried before. When meat began to advance ome years ago, the government and authorities on household econ omy began to urge the people to use the cheaper cuts. The newspapers printed a great deal of stuff showing how these less expensive meats could be made appetizing. But many people complained that when they went to their mar kets, they could not. find these cheaper cuts on sale. Apparently a good many provision dealers, not finding such demand for them, would take no pains to have them in stock. Since meat has been so very high people have bad to consider its cost more carefully. The use of the cheaper cuts has been popular ized to a large extent. Still there Female Suffrage A day will dawn in the hereafter when a legislator at Washington will decide to introduce a bill which will wreck bis career in public life. The attitude will be patriotic, but he will be conscious that it involves bis political suicide. For this reason be will not take that attitude until be is ready for political extinction. He will not wreck bis career until be has had all the career he wants. Then he will make the. sacrifice. He will introduce a bill excluding illiterates from the suffrage. He will not discriminate between the sexes, he will frame bis bill so that it will operate against all men and women who cannot read or write Thereat er be will not present himself for re-election. It would be a waste of time. For many years we have been ar guing whether women have sense enough to vote. The argument has at last become so wearisome at Washington that it has ended in a victory for the affirmative. There is some justification for it. Some women have sense. Some men have, also. Some men can tell you. without referring to a book, the food values of the chemical ingredients contained in most articles of diet. Also what towns in South America are the best markets for certain manufac tured products. And several other things. They are better informed than the average. It would be ab surd not to let them vote. Some women are equally well in formed, and equally well qualified to vote more of 'them than you might think. It seems strange that they have only just acquired a privilege which has been held pro miscuously by drunks who did not know whether Longfellow, was a cocktail or a suit of underwear. Many men and women who have never read Longfellow, or familiar ized theuiselves with the comraer cial situation in South America are nevertheless abundantly qualified to vote. But it ia a fair guess that they can all read and write - Yet there are male and female voters who can do neither. Women have now obtained this privilege, and many of them ought not to have been granted it And there are many men who ought to be de prived of it; but no politician just now has the nerve to say so. Own Your Own Farm. At Des Moines, Iowa, each year there is a baby show at the state fair. Babies are entered from all parts of the state, and judged by score cards. They are classified as coming from cities, small towns, and from the country i. e. from farms. ' And each year the farm babies, both boys and girls, no matter what age, average the lowest in health. The town babies beat them every year. Yet Iowa is a typical farm ing state, and a prosperous one. And at a meeting of the National Education Association, held in Feb ruary, 1919, a chart was presented showing what percentage of school children are afflicted with various diseases, both in the city and in the country. There were fourteen kjnds of dis ease tabulated, and the country children were found to be the great er sufferers from each of the dis eases. The disorders listed were tonsil defects, teeth defects, weak eyes, adenoids, ear troubles, enlarg ed glands, malnutrition, breathing defects, spinal curvature, anaemia, social disease, lung disease, heart trouble, and. weak mentality. It seems almost incredible, but it is so true that experts have been giving the matter anxious consider ation. They have decided that the FORD Ford cars are important servants everywhere. They help the family enjoy life, bring the pleasures and advantages of the towo within reach? of the farmer and give practical ser vice every day in country and town. They require a minimum of atten tion; any one can run the Ford and care for it, but it is better to have repairs and replacements taken care of by those who are familiar with the work and have the tools the genuine materials, and skilled men to do the work promptly. We pledge . Ford owners the . reliable Ford service with real Ford parts and standard Ford prices. Monroe City Auto Co., Pierceall &. Sons, Caplinger & Johnston, Logan Bros and Roy Crowley. GRAHAM & KINCAID disease rate among country chil dren is caused by the unhealthy condition of tenant farmers' homes. As a tenant knows he may be leav i ng before long, he is not disposed to improve living conditions for the benefit of the next tenant. Bad vantilation, absence of screens, in sanitary fixtures, leaky roofs all continue from year to year. The landlord will not "make improve ments, because he feels that the next tenant will want it done alt over again anyhow. And there are more than a mil lion tenant farmers who move every year. In Summer County, ins the state of Kansas, over 54 per cent of the farms are held by ten ants. And there is more typhoid per capita than in any other county in the state. Here is a chance for a construct ive reformer, "Own your own farm'" for his slogan. are many people of quite small in comes, who persist in having the most expensive portions. They can't seem to realize that the skill ed cook can make the other sections very palatable. The meat packing interests have much to gain by popularizing infor mation of this character. There is a great deal of bitter feeling toward the packing interest. Many believe that they have made too much money out of the exigencies of the people If they can do anything to promote a more economical use of meat, it must tend to relieve the pressure of prices, and in that way to create a more favorable senti ment toward the packing interest. It always pays for the sellers of any article to show the customers how to use it to the best advantage. Important Notice. To all members of L 0. 0.
