"The Important observation to lio made," declares the secretary, "I that the receipt Into cold storage or en tirely or very nearly exhausted by tho dellverle out of cold storage with. In 10 month." Tho rrcslt beef received Inln cold storage during the ynr beginning with May. IBOii. was kept therfi jin the avor age for i i mnthi tHi fiesti mutton, 4.4 month! the fresh pork, D.a or r. month: nnd the butter, 4.4 months. The poultry received during tho year beginning- with March, JMlft, wns kept oh the nverage 3.1 months; the cum, d.9 months; and the fish, 8.7 month. The cost of cold storage tire run nlng against tho price of stored com modities month by month The- own era must us good judgment nnd lake their goods out of storage before, tha cost of storage nddrd to the original cost of tho goods and prrlmp soma profit, will raise the total amount of coat ubovn tha market price, It in n problem of tha future. The warehouseman ha n rata of charge for spneo for each commodity, In soma case for storing for tho sea eon, nnd In other by the month. An other cost of storago I Interest, which I not alwny n theoretical cosl, and a third cost la lnsurnne If theso three coit nro combined they amount to 0.437 of t cent per poHrtd of fresh beef per month, or 3.fi per cent of the mean wholesale prlco of Jfcieof during Iho heavy cold-storago month of 1 110; for fresh mutton the cost nro 0.3S3 of t cent per pound, or J. it per cent of the mtan wholesale price for prlcei for peultry. 0.44 of l cent per Mttnd. er 9.8'itrttfMRt of the Mean wholesale firlco of the larg est eiaaa or poultry: for butter. 0.S71 or l cent ptr peund, or 3.4 per cent of tho Men wholesale nrlce: far eauta tho cotla amount to O.Htl of l cent per doten, or 3 per cent of the mcatf whoieNtlo price. It Is tvldent that aa the time ot storage lengthens, the coet and their psreentage of wholeenlo prica mtMt be multiplied by the number of month. If the storage Is for IS meflthe, far Instance, the coet per pound "rangoa from C.373 cent for rresh mutton W B.C7S cent for butter, aM la 1.999 cent per down for egg: tho ceata for in month rang from 31. s per cent or the wholesalo price In the ease of butter to 57.11 per cent In the case of fresh mutton. The casta of storage for tho average length ot time during which these commodltlea are In cold slot aire are 7.9 per cent ot the wholesale price for fresh beef; 17.1 per cent fer fresh mutton; 3.3 pr cent for fresh pork; S. per cent Mr poultry; 10.8 per cent for butters and IS per cent for eggs. Apprxolmately, tho wholesalo price of tho commodities mentioned am In creased by cold storago to tho extent of tho percentage just given. Cold storage ha Interposed to change considerably the relntlvd monthly consumption to matte H moro even throughout tho year. It Int. al so changed tho relative monthly prices throughout the year. Theso two facta have raised h prion level of the commodities covered by this In vetgotlon, for a reason apart from tho, costs of storage, In two ways, then, void storage has raised tho cost of living. Tho price that wero com piled indicate a, tendency toward uni formity of price throtiRhout thn vcar. nfter cold atorago became a large bus. mess, ror butter, eggs, fresh mutton, and poultry; but a tondency away from uniformity of price for fresh boet nnd fresh pork. The conclualona nro substantiated by two method of treat ing tno price compilation. Thl cold-storage Investigation aup purl a bdluf that there ha been much speculation In some year by thn nun who keep these commodities In cold utorajre. ono illustration J given: The egg year taio-n had 39 per cent moro egg in cold storage than tho preceding year, and yet the pi Ice Indix number went much hlahr than usual in the months when It la high October to January nnd tnuoh lower In the month when U I low March to July following.
