Tlioro la nt present n grout scarcity o

worda of n IftJy running ono of the load

ing like it Ims ovor'boon aeon in Denver.
1 have now orders for twonty-aovon jjirls
more than 1 can fusnlah , niul I will bo

girls from the cast. "

"Whoro have the girls gone ? "
"All over the west and auuth. I Imvo
eont out 17'J ' girls during the past month
Lo the mountains , to Now Mexico ; and
even to Tcxns. "
It must bo expected that dull times
would cause mi increase- the supply of
domestic help , but no such ofloct Is ap
parent. The trouble socms to bo that
iho supply of help has boon reduced by
false reports published in n Denver paper
to the otloct that girls were working for
starvation wages. The report was purely
sensational. The supply of female help
for domestic service 1ms never boon as
near equaling the demand in Denver w
In the cast as is shown by the prices paid
hero and there. In Denver n girl will
receive § 20 per month for the worl :
which she would Imvo to do for § 3 n week
in the oast. Domestic help in the east
rarely receives as high as § I per week ,
while more frequently $2 a week is con
sidered fair wages.
The reports , however , have had the ef
fect of cutting down the supply of hired
ls until it moot require a bonus to so
sure the services of ono of thorn. Wugoa
liavo not advanced porcoptinly , however ,
but there liaa boon no such decline as in
other occupations. The mischovious
story grow evidently out of confounding
sowing girls with domestic help. The
sowing girls are plenty enough every whore
and are almost always in excess of the
demand. They are in many respects , as
a rule inferior to the domestic help ea
Socially in the matter of strength and
ire unable to outer the more lucrative
lold of domestic labor.
The importation of girls from the east
going to bo quite a common thing
among tno intelligent ofllces. Girls fresh
; rotn the east are preferred almost uni-
'ormly to barnacle girla , who only too
often make up for a lack of willingness
, o work by n cheerful familiarity with the

'oared if not more respected than more
Besides the difference in the pay , hired
; irls in Denver are accorded moro privi-
egos than in the east. A well trained

Thia reverend gentleman had presented a

King Humbert , and had also given a

would do uumothing to improve the agri

ow York Tribune :
The price of beef has boon about ono
ent a pound higher this year than last ,
otwithstanding the introduction of Chi-
ago dressed beef , which has boon Bold
lore in largo quantities. People auk
vhy , in the face uf all competition bo-
, woun western beef and beef slaughtered
icro , the price should bo so high. There
i continual war between the dealers of
itlerent kinds of meat , and all assign
Ifi'erent reasons for the range of prices.
A Tribune reporter made inquiries of a
nan who has boon intimately associated
nth the Hvo-caUlo trade at this marketer
or a number of years , and who is an au-
liority on the subject. Hu said :
"It certainly Booms strange that beef
hould bo high this year. Veal , lamb
ud mutton are cheaper than they have
> cen for some timo. Business is dull ;
rep prospects were never hotter ; bread-
tull'a are lower in price than for several
'earn ; and it uooins that beef should bo
ow too. It is hard to give an entirely
mtisfactory reason for the high prices.
'hero can bo no doubt that the cool sumner -
nor has much to do with It , for it keeps
looplo in town. Leas fruit is eaten than
n a hot , dry soaaon , and moro beef in
iroportion. But the price of cattle in
ho west may bo said to regulate the
irico of beef hero , Chicago , Kansas
Jity and St. Lou in virtually control the
narket. Freight rates are low , shippers
ro making little or nothing , and whole-
ale and retail butchers have made no
lotioy to npoak of for the last two years.
'no farmoM got all the benefit 01 the
you look for lower prices ? "
' Not until the supply is inproased or
ho demand loesoncd. "
"Tho iinprojaion prevails that western
rcsac.d beef would lower prices. "
"The fact is that the western dressed
jeef uhippcrs of Chicago have bucn the
means of putting up prices , How ia that ?
You nee there are three competing inter-
osta in Chlci o the eastern shipper ,
the exporter , und the dressed beef ship
per to say nothing of the oannor , who ,
however , uses moatly a class of goods not
shipped to eastern markets , Of couruo
two of those inturejtB urn sometimes iden
tical. Some of the oaHlvrn shippers of
live cattle and Rome of the dressed beef
shippers aru also oxpurtom , but the west
ern dressed beef men take good care that
the eastern ihippord shall pay good prices
for their cattle. In I hid way the price of
beef io kept high hero. Western droaaod
beef shippers have mudo nothing in this )
ci y. Their priceo have been about the '
same as these for city-dressed boefpea -
sibly a fraction lower - but they follow
the price of city dresied riijht up when it
rises. The price of refrigerated beef in
all the towns between hero and Albany is
10 and 11 cents ,
"My friend 'Tommy Loughran of
Washington Market has boon spjndlng
his vacation in Maine , and ho took pains
when riding around the country to atop
all the butchor-wagona and interview the
drivers on the price of beef , The uni
form rule ho found to lin , for light bopf ,
11 cents for such as has been sollini : in
this city for ( and Scents. .
"I have no opposition to western
drcaaod beef , nor do I take any stock in
the poison theory , but I don't think Now
Yorkers will over like it as well IH they
do beef that id slaughtered hero. I don't
think it H inakini' much headway in
Now York , for I understand that E ox
Market ia to lot , and I am told that
Swift's refrigerator in Kingaton has become -
como clo od for aovoral wooka. 1 don't
think these extreme prices will continue
long. There is an old Western saying
When anakos go blind the price of beef
oosiip. ' Well , anakea go blind , I bo-
iiovo , when they shod their skins in
August , and aa that operation ia now beIng -
Ing performed wo may look for lower
jirlcoa when it la over.
"Import tr.vlo ia dull and shippers are
loaing money every day. Laat year at
Lhia time Now York was Bonding out 4-
300 cattle a jwook , against 1,500 now.
IDxportors can make no money while
prices are high , and , indeed , they have
boon losing since Jan. I. "
G. E. Swift , too head of Swift's Chicago -
cage drosscd-boof business , waa asked
in regard to the effect of his moat on
"Well , " said ho , "if our boot wan not
jolng sold here pricoa would bo at loaat a
cent higher all round than tnoy aro. The
pricoa of cattle In the west regulates us
icro. There is at present considerable
lomand for live cattle in this city , and
f wo were not here with our droasod boot
.hat demand would bo increased of course.
This demand is supplied chlotly by Chi-
: ago , and whether the beef is slaughtered
lore or there it remains the same. But
dressed beef can bo shipped much cheap
er than live cattle , and there wo liavo an
advantage. But speaking of prices , they
are not high in proportion to the supply
of cattle. The short horn crop of last
rear has made bcovon unusually scarce ,
md as the demand is brisk the prices are
lecosaarily forced up. There's certainly
no problem about it. Supply and demand

"Simply a good advertisement. The

ironiptod an investigation Into our

it all times. Wo came out with clean
lands and business booming. Our
laughter-houses at Chicago are accessible

"How is your beef received ? "
"So well that aomo butchcra buy It and
sell it for homo slaughtered , and cuatom-

"It is oaid that your beef is dry. "
"What do you moan by dry1' ?
"No blood in it. It won't make gravy ? '
"As far aa blood is concerned , you are
ight. Wo follow Biblical teaching in
.hat respect , and got rid of every drop
) f blood wo can. Wo don't want blood
n our boef. But I don't understand
low that makes it dry. I'll toll you a
fact that is not generally known. The
animal heat in a carcass of beef is duo to
.ho preaonco of certain elements that
weigh something , and beef that is not
refrigerated does not lose it , but by our
system of freezing forty-night hours wo
hid wo decrease the weight about two
) or cent , and during the transit from
Chicago to this city 1 per cent more ,
nakinir our boof. ! per cent lighter than
t was before going into the coolers. Thia
comes from those elements being driven
out. So yon may say that people got
moro meat for their money in buying of
is than of homo slaughterers. And it is
mrdly necessary to add that beef will
coop pure much longer when the animal
loat is all driven out. Our beef , when
t roaches Now York hao been live days
tilled , and yet the hottest weather can-
lot spoil it in forty-eight hours. In our
shipments to London wo once had a VOB-
ol delayed lor forty-three days , but the
