KEARNEY, Neb., Jan. 17. To tho
Editor of The Bee: It seems to me that
If the people who are making thbt great
agitation about the high prices of
provisions would give the question a little
thought they would become reconciled to
the Inevitable, and that I that the cost
of living la governed by the cont of the
Take the price of hoes on the hoof.
The beat, which the American people bur,
cot the packers now about $8.50. At
Chicago the packer losei. one-fifth in
dressing and the expense of running the
slaughter house must be added, which
would make the hog cost about 10 cent
per pound gro. Now r the butcher to
make anything he must sell hi cheapest
cuts at 10 cents and the be.n cut a high
as 17 cents, and then ho does not make
as much as he did when getting hog for
4 .cents to 6 cents per pound.
Now as for beef, a good fat steer coats
about-1 cents, and cows, fat ones, cost 4
cents to 6 cents per pound. A goodnteer
loses In dressing fifty pounds to the hun
dred, or 60 per cent. A cow loxes sixty
pounds to the hundred, or CO per cent. A
dressed steer now on the hook will co;t
the butcher about 13 en;s per pound for
neck shanks, and the butcher has to sell
hla best cuts at from IS to 18 or to cents to
come out even. Good cow beef costs the
butcher from about t cents to 10 cents per
pound, and, of course, there is a great por
tion of It that cannot be sold as high an
Cost, so the best cuts have to sell from 12
to 17 or 18 cents to let the butcher out
And so It Is with all food products.
Wheat, corn and hay are high. A firmer
cannot make beef and pork for Iff thin
he la getting. When feed Is to hls!i you
cannot put a pound of href on a steo.'s
tins for less than S cants. I know this for
1 have fed thousands of cattle and hozs.
Tou will see when you can buy corn from
25 cents to 40 cents per bushel and hay
from (3 to 15 per ton that you will gt
beef at old prices. When you can buy
wheat from S3 to 00 cents per bushel thjn
you will hear of the same lot of howling
Ignoramuses sending out committees to In
vestigate and to oppress the business of
the land by their Ignorant Interference.
1 read that a man by the name of Bab
son gave as the reason, for present prices
of provisions, first, tht there was Uo
much gold produced. If I had been one of
the audience after he said that I should
have walked out. That Is something like
sonW of Mr. Bryan's vaporlngs. I bought
100 steers and gave my check for the
amount, and the man from whom I bought
the steers deposited the check and got
credit in the bank for (4,000. The steers
went into tne yara and 1 paid Tor reed
with checka, and the people to whom I
gave the checks deposited them and paid
their debts with the money. I sent the
cattle to market and received a draft for
my money, which I deposited, getting
credit at the bank for the amount In the
whole transaction there was not a dollar
of cash used. Gold is a good thing for
basic money and the more the better.
Mr. Babson'a second reason Is the same
old song, that the farmers are leaving tbelr
farms and going to the city, where they
are not needed. They may go to the city.
but If the people In the city are no further
advanced than our financial and business
expert, I think the city needs a few of our
farmers to Introduce Ideas. When the
farmers do go to the city they leave no
land unoccupied.- One roan can do as touch
work on a farm now as three could do in
former years, and do it better, so wo have
men to spare except at harvest time.
Mr. Babson also says the people consume
too many luxuries and kinks because the
people have spent $600,000,000 for automo
biles. I cannot see anything but prosperity
in that. Is not that great amount of money
better In circulation than lying In the
pockets of the people? He predicts a panic
by 1912. He haa surely been camping with
Mr. Bryan, who. predicts calamity right
along, and all the time business Improves.
I predict we will not have a paillc. See
who la right. . Mr. Babson says wo must
raise b per cent more crops. Wo will raise
more than 10 per ceut more.

WkfB Meat la High.
SOUTH OMAHA, Jan. .-lu the Kdltor
of The' Bee: The question now being
agitated In reference to the high cost of
living could, so for as fresh meats are
concerned, be easily answered If the house
wife or cook oould be educated to use the
cheaper outs of meat, but the American
people evidently figure that "the best is
none too good' and, in consequence, It Is
rib roasts, sirloin or porterhouse steaks,
which of course, are the most expensive
cuts of the beef.
Mrs. A., calling on Mrs. B., finds she
has only forty minutes In which to get
home and oook supper before the bead of
the house arrives; therefore, she rushes
into the first butcher shop and buys thirty
cents worth of sirloin steak, this being the
only meat she can think of which can be
prepared In a hurry. Had she been eco
nomical and educated In the use of the
oheaper cuts, she would probably have
bought a flank steak at 12 or 14 cents,
and prepared a ''Beef Cannelon," whloh is
delicious, or phe of a dosen other dishes
that Can be made from lit cheaper cuts.
There is Just as muoh nutriment In the
cheaper cuts of meat as there Is in the
more expensive and when properly pre
pared very excellent dishes can be made
from any of the cheaper cuts, as, for In
stance, steak eu casserole, from round
tteak; Spanish minced beef In meat box,
frcm the plate, chuck or round; beef a la
mode, from tht clod (a cut from the chuck),
or from the outside (a cut from the round);
beef loaf, from the chuck or round, braised
teef, from the round; beefsteak plo, from
the flank steak; brown beef stew with
dumplings, from the shank or bony part
of chuck; curry balls, from the plate or
rhsnk; little beef cakes, from any of the
The ribs and loins of a carcass are the
highest priced cuts and constitute 26 per
rent of the entire beef, consequently these
cuts must be sold at high prices to offset
the comparatively low prices of the cheaper
cuts, which constitute 74 per cent of the
This la a condition the progressive house,
wife should take, advantage of and she
will be surprised at the saving she will
make In her meat bill every month.

Merita of Their Claim and Methods
There can hardly be two opinions as to
the claim which the teacher has upon any
syatem that may be adopted, whether It
be official or private says the Century
Magazine. Mr. Carnegie's "Foundation"
has made admirable provision for veteran
professors, but compared even with the
amall salaries paid for higher Instruction,
those paid to teachers In the common
schools are lamentably Inadequate. Theae
so!dlrrs of the Intellectual realm often
rrauu the gray age of service, after years
of sacrifice, without having received a
larger compensation than that of an
ordinary clerk or cook. Many a young
woman, in tho bloom of beauty and health,
takes up teaching with a fair and natural
expectation of marriage, and. being con
scientious, devotes herself to the Interest
ing work until, caught In the machinery of
her dally toll, she realises, after many
yars, that competent and faithful aa she
Is, her resources have not been sufficient
to cultivate In her the best of which .she Is
capable; llfo has paased her by. Every one
knowa of Instancea of hardship attendant
upon such devotion to the great work of
training the minds aad forming the
characters of the young. In contrast to
this, the honor accorded to the teacher In
China carries both suggestion and ward
ing. The amount of pension varies. New Tork
giving the highest maximum pension, and
Boston and St. Louts the lowest. In some
there Is a uniform rate of pension for all
teachers, regardless of the amount of the
salary; In others the annuity Is In proj
portion to the salary received. The
majority of cities give a life pension of
one-half the annual salary. In St. Louis
and Boston the pension Is $190 a year; In
Buffalo, a third of the-salary; which, for
the grade teacher, amounts to S2T0 or $300.
Cincinnati, Cleveland and Columbus give
a maximum pension of $300. Indianapolis
gives $300 for twenty-five years of service,

BETTER PII1LIC SCHOOLS.
A Critic's Snsareatlona for Their
Ideal public schools are not likely to
arrive much before the mlllenium, but that
a great dal can be done to Improve them
Is pointed out by Joseph M. Rogers in
Lipplnoott's Magazine. A few oT his Idcaa
ere compressed In these sentences:
It Is not meant that the present system
i hould be wholly abandoned, and a return
mide to earlier oondltions. But it Is cer
tain that If the three R's were restored to
their former Importance many fads and
fancies, would be gtven up as fads and
fzncles in actual courses of study and re
placed more profitably In other ways.
Take, for Instance, physiology, upon which
much stress is laid In these days. It ts an
Important subject, ooncerring which every
child should have some fundamental In
struction,, but It Is not necessary to spend
yctra In studying It from text books. An
illustrated lecture of half an hour each
week by a competent physician would be
of far more value than the books now
studied. It seems a faot that the children
gain little practical benefit from this study
at present. Then there is physical geo
graphy, which Is made to Include the ele
ments of geology, astronomy and zoology.
I have never yet found the boy who did
not consider thla atudy a bore. He flound
ers through the book, learning some special
thlnga without getting a grasp of the
whole subject, and usually Is more mysti
fied than enlightened by many of the
statements. Here is a case where a simple
text book would be sufficient If supple
mented by a course of Illustrated lectures,
which children would certainly enjoy and
from' which they would derive permanent
Ia theso days great stress Is laid upon
what Is called English, which Includes
grammar, composition, literature, etc. A few
authors are. chosen, and children pore over
tiieee, commit some pieces to memory, and
analyse them until they are tired out and
disgusted. I speak from experience and
wide observation. How many school chil
dren have ever heard a great piece of litera
ture properly readT I was 14 years old be
fore any such thing came Into my life, and
I had unuaual advantages In this respect.
If there were a dozen lecturers visiting
each school," occasionally making use of
moving pictures and lantern slides or of
other Illustrative material, I feel sure that
children would not only be greatly Inter
ested, but that they would have things Im
pressed on their minds In more definite
fashion. If for each of these lectures there
were furnished to the pupils a brief printed
syllabus, the subject matter could be more
firmly Impressed and the lessons forever
remembered. And what seems probable is
that the children would be the means
through them of giving their parents a
good . deal of Information. This may seem
like bringing the university method down

children be compelled or expeoted to do so?
There Is a tremendous amount of physical
energy in a child, and it needs an outlet.
Of course this means that classes must be
smaller, but that must come ln any event.
It also means that we must Inject Into edu
cation, aside from those things which make
for mere mental discipline, the elements of
interest and profit. If tbe boy Is learning
something that Is to be of practical use to
him hereafter I mean something which he
can readily see ts to be of Immediate ad

studies. In a few Instances tho girls now
