Trav erse Region VOL LIV TRAVEKSE CITY GRAND TRAVERSE COUNTY MICHIGAN THURSDAY AUGUST 7 1913 LEAD WORLD EATING MEAT AMERICA CAPTURES LAURELS FROM GREAT BRITAIN INTERESTING FIGURES GIVEN DIMINISHING BEEF SUPPLY FUR NISHES REAL PROBLEM People are Advised to Eat More Sheep and Lamb in Order to Reduce High Cost of Living Washington Aug are the biggest meat eaters in the world They beat Johnny Bull with all his legends about the beef of old England Moreover they eat more beef per cap ita than the British do Figures for meat eating in 1909 jusl made public by the bureau of animal industry of the department of agri culture show that the per capita con sumption of meat for that year in the Tjnited States was pounds di vided as follows fractions Beet SO pounds veal 7 pork C7 mutton and lamb t goat meat 13 Over in England where they boast about good old roast beef the per capital for that product is only 56 pounds Moreover the proportion of beef in the total sateii by the Ameri can is exactly the same as for the per cent Inhabitants of tbe tight little isle make up their total by eating 26 pounds of mutton a year as against the Americans 6 pounds The Spanish are the smallest meat caters their per capita consumption being only 4S pounds Germanys is 113 pounds In both Germany and France pork is meat In view of the growing scarcity and high prices of cattle and swine and their products in our markets in recent times it is well to call atten tion to the comparatively insignificant part played by the ovine species in our meat the bureau de clares It may be seen that we con sume only C pounds of mutton and lamb per head this year which is barely 4 per cent of the total meat supply When we compare this small consumption of mutton with that of England a very striking contrast is presented Our small consumption no doubt is mainly attributable to the exceedingly cheap and abundant supplies of beef and pork which have prevailed in for mer years thus rending it unneces sary to look elsewhere for meat But the day of cheap meat is past and the present market prices of food animals point to the fact that it is becoming more and more imperative that every available source of our meat supply should be carefully developed Hence the necessity for more sheep fanning It is undeniable that the sheep spe cies troth in the lamb stage and when older furnishes meat of most excel lent quality when the animals are suited for this purpose Therefore the present seems to be an opportune time for stockmen to pay more atten tion to the raising of sheep for meat production Finally it would be in the interest of economy for the people generally to cultivate a greater taste for mut ton and lamb especially the smaller families who require joints of a size that cannot usually be supplied from the larger beef animals A more in sistent demand on the part the pub lic for mutton and lamb of good qual ity would no doubt soon lead to an increase of breeding and feeding op erations besides relieving somewhat the present heavy demand for beef and pork in the face of a short sup ANNUAL PICNIC Eagles Will Enjoy Outing at Leland Sunday The annual picnic of the

consideration for some time THE PRODIGAL SON This is a text often dwelt upon by preachers in their Sunday ser motis and too often falls short of conveying the lesson that is meant for tlie congregation They all succeed in satisfying them selves that they have not spent their money in riotous living while away from home This is where they make a mistake for there are countless people who ignore the message spoken by the preacher when they are in every sense guilty from a moral staml point The man or woman who spends their money out of town for necessities which they caii buy at home is a prodigal son or daughter for they are wasting the substance of the community in which they live by sending it to the outsider who has no interests in the town where the money is earned When people make their money in a certain community they are under a moral obligation to spend that money in the place where it is earned and if they do not they are prodigals just as much as the Biblical boy who spent his substance in riotous liv ing away from home There is an economic law that demands that the money of a community be kept at home and the success and prosperity of that community de pends entirely in tlie manner in which the oners who live there abide by this law The breaking of an economic law is prodigality of the worst kind and the fact that some towns are bard up in the midst of prosperity is due to the fact that too many of the in habitants have the soap club ease and mail order mania to es tablish maintain financial health in their particular com munity Every dollar sent out of town is a dollar Tost to the circii lation of that community and the reaction must of necessity be felt in every line of business that is conducted there A community of prodigals cannot prosper and the sooner this lesson is learned by those who have contracted the mail order habit tlie better it will be for the towns in which they live PERTINENT SCHOOL FACTS The old soldier his wife or his
