Chief ln.rrtor Don C. Ayer of the. bu
ru of animal industry, reports that his
department has Increased Its efficiency to
considerable, extent during the past year
"There are now between forty and fifty
men constantly employed In the stock
yards, packing houses and in the railroad
yards. Besides this there is the regular
efrlre force. This department has been
doing its work so ouietly that It Is a
question if many of the people of South
Omaha outside of the packing houses and
the stork yards know that such an Instl
lutlon exists. Still there Is no other on
Ihlng which hag done so much to make
Ilie city such a thriving center of the
neat and live stork business. The bureau
as established by act of congress la 1X31.
At that time there was practically no ex
port of meats from tha United States. It
s a remarkable fart that the United States
ass the la;t of the powers to create such
tn enterprine. 1p to this time tha for
lm Inspectors had continually condemned
he small shipments of the American
sroduct which reached Europe. Prejudice
ecame so strong in those years, a-nd with
onslderable Justice, too, that the foreign
trade was held bach far more and for a
niich longer time than It would have been
hnd there been proper Inspection. Since
the bureau was established, however, the
American product has risen steadily In
quality and quantity, until It now bids
fair to surpass all the competitors of the
world. We now export millions of pounds
f beef and pork, where ten years ago
our product was met with condemnation
and prejudice. The reason Is, we have a
clean product, free from those deadly pol
sons and germs, which If taken into the
human system have caused lifetimes of
misery and scattered Uca,thly infection
"Wli at Inspection Has Wresght
"In those days of indiscriminate killing
;t was not unusual to see tha market
rlutted with pork at 2 cents per pound
en foot. Now tha export demand keeps the
nrice continually over the 4 cent mark.
The same applies to cattle and sheep.
"We Inspeot the live product when it is
received In the wards, and It Is a fact that
ur men have necome so expert In the
detection of humors and disease that it Is
rarely that an unflt carcass Is killed with
out the condemnation tag on It. This loss
falls on the shipper; and be it said ihat
we are not especially loved by the aver
age man who sends his stock to our mar
kets. We have discovered the peculiar
trait of a class of men. They seem to
think if they beat the government Inspec
tor they have done a smart thing, not see
ing that it Is this strictness that has really
brought about the profitable business they
ara In. Of course, if the carcass Is sold
before it is detected, the loss then falls
on the packer and that is one reason why
tha avernpe shipper tries so many schemes
to evade the eye of the Inspector. It is
a notable fact that more than half the
furmers, when they discover that their
hogs have the cholera or other epidemic
disease, will hurry them off to the mar
kets, willing to inflict poison and death on
hundreds of their fellowmen. But then,
uf course, we find another class that are
entirely conscientious In the matter and
invite the closest scrutiny. I am glad to
say that this class Is growing.
"Our Inspection does not stop with the
live animal, but every carcass is looked
ever time and again. My men can detect
the fevered, the tainted, the parasitic flesh
at a glance, and the condemnation tag Is
at once put on. Every car of meat shipped
ut Is examined: and it cannot, leave the
yards without our seal. We examine every
recess and every product used in the
packing houses. I have twelve men con
stantly working in our laboratory with
microscopes to detect the minutest taint
r affection. Our favor is not to be bought
r sold. We do our duty without fear
r favor. When we condemn a carcass we
never lose sight of It until It is put In
the cooking vats and boiled piecemeal.
With It Is put a drug which makes it im
fvtaNlhl for the markets, exrertt an noun-
grease, lubricants or fertlllrer. The aver
se; of these carcasses runs from five to
thirty per day; representing value, if the
meat were fit, to pay f t our department
many tlmee over. I take It, by this very
condemnation, we have actually Inrreased
tha value of the balance by two. I can
shew statistical proof.
"We report to the government every day
the work of the second day preceding, so
it is evident that we cannot get far

The captain and an officer went to the

a slight difference of opinion, and to get

Xervlces at Churches.
The Catholic and Episcopal churches held
their special Chrlstmss services yesterday.
The early mass at St. Agnes' was largely
attended, as were the three low masses
following. The rspacity of the church
was exhausted at the time of the solemn
high mass at 10:30. Rv. McCartney of
St. Patrick's church, on Castellar street,
conducted the service.
The sacrament of the holy supper was
observed by 'the St. Martin's Episcopal
congregation. A full and solemn ritual
was observed. The congregation was
large and all the responses were given
with interest and spirit. There was no
formal sermon. The music was especially
for the occasion. In the afternoon waa a
children's service and a Christmas tree.
This the children enjoyed. Many presents
were distributed to them. Mrs. I H

Tlme-Sarlnsr Advantages ef a Tnreh
Deftly Applied to Overgrown
Mr. James A. Richardson, who has re
cently returned from a trip through the
west, says that while he was away he
saw the quickest shave that ever came
under his notice. He waa traveling from
Indianapolis to Terra Haute, and the
track being blocked by a freight train,
he had a long wait one evening at Green
ville. To relieve the tedium of the delay
he got out of the train and was walking
up and down the platform, engaged In
conversation with some gentlemen, who
had been his traveling companions, when
the attention of the group was attracted
to the peculiar actions of two truck hands
farther down on the platform.
"Both of the men were In overalls and
rough blue blouses," Mr. Richardson said.
In telling of the occurrence, "and they
belonged to the ranks of the men who
crawl under the cars as soon as the train
stops, tap the wheels and see if every
thing is all right. After they had ex
amined the machinery under our train
they stopped at the end of the plat
form, and one of the men turned down
the collar of his blouse, held his head
up quite stiffly, and stood stock still, fac
ing the other fellow. The other fellow
by the way, carried a lighted torch you
know the sort the railroad men use and
he passed the lighted torch quickly up
and down his chum's face
I wondered
If the chum were voluntarily offering
himself for cremation, for he stood there
making no attempt to restrain his friend.
When the operation had been continued
for a few seconds, long enough to have
been exceedingly painful to a sensitive
skin, the fellow holding the torch with-
drfw ,t and lhe chum walked v.ry quletly
to a pump, mashed his face, wiped It with
a big bandanna handkerchief, rejoined
his companion, and the two men walked
0ff together, disappearing down the track.
I "The m hole thing was over much more
quickly than I can tell it, and we all
stood speechless until the two men mere
out of sight. Then, mith one accord, m-e
turned to one of the railroad officials, mho
had Joined us, and asked him what it all
meant. And what do you think he said?
He told us It mas merely a quick shave,
and ssld that the railroad men were in
the habit of doing the barbering for each
other In that may. He said that the men
dld.i t have time to use razors, and rarely
had a chance to go through the ordinary
form of shaving, so they singed the sur
plus hair off each other's faces In the may
we had witnessed, and it was very much
like the may the skin of a chicken or tur
key Is singed when it is prepared for the

oen. He laughed mnen ne asked If It
did not hurt, and he said that the men
are so accustomed to m-orklng over the
flames that their faces mere hardened and
they didn't mind it in the least. But of
all quick shaves and queer ones, ton, that
was the quickest and the queerest I ever
saw." Baltimore Amtrloan.

Many residents of Omaha familiar with
the army and social life of old Tort Omaha
will remember Oeneral Morris C. Foots,
then a captain, whose recent death In
Switzerland is mentioned by the Freeman's
Journal of Cooperstown, N. Y. The New
York Evening Tost also contained a de
tailed statement of his long and honorable
career from his enlistment In the Forty
fourth New York volunteer Infantry, his
ser-lces through the civil war and subse
quently In the Indian campaigns of the
west, in Cuba. China and the rhlllrrlnes
and his successive promotions until retired
as brigadier general In 1900. While sta
tioned in Omaha he was sent with his
company to Chicago, where It rendered sig
nal and effective service in suppressing tha
noted riots whic h the local authorities were
unable,, or unwilling, to put down.
After removal from Omaha he married
and is survived by a widow and two sons.
He waa a cousin of Mrs. Judge Wakeley of
this city.
Throughout his military career, and in
private life, General Foots was a credit
able type of the American soldier, civilian
and citizen.
