The centenary of the birth of Kllas Howe, the modest Yankee who Invent ed the sewing mnchlne, took place on June 9. There was no extended of servance of the day, observes Hart ford Courant, yet It was Howe who took a good deal of the drudgery out of the lives of millions of American women. He also Increased the power of his fellow men to produce garments and other material that formerly needed the patient handwork of Indi viduals. But It Is Interesting to observe, In connection with the anniversary, that the Savannah News undertakes the rather hopeless task of trying to con vince Its readers that it was not Howe, but a Georgian, Francis R. Gouldlng, who constructed and operated the first sewing machine. This paper says that this man, a Presbyterian preach er living in Liberty county, married a Savannah girl and then began work on a sewing machine In order that he might save his fair wife much hard work. Allgin this was long before Howe patented his machine, nnd also that Gouldlng never patented his, they try to show hi motives were purely altruistic and not commercial. It all sounds good, but It will take considerable "space" in the Georgiu newspapers to convince the world that Gouldlng takes the prize. Americana Eat Little Mutton. In Great Britain about 22 per cent of all meat consumed is mutton. In France it Is about 11 per cent. In Canada It is not quite 7, and in the United States Is only about 3 pei cent. Last year (1918) the consump tion of dressed meat (lard excluded) In the United States gveraged ICO pounds per person, of which only B were mutton and lamb. The British, the Canadians, and the Trench all similar types of people and having habits of life similar to Americans use less meat than Amer icans do, but a much larger proportion comes from sheep. The United States gets Its meat principally from cattle and hogs. Pork consumption Is about 14 times, and beef consumption about 13 times, as great as our use of mut ton and lamb. These are the annual averages for last year. TRUSTEE'S ANNUAL REPORT, Morgan County.
