THANK YOU I
Banjo Strings That Reduce
the Cost of Beef Steak!
BANJO strings and drum-snares sandpaper and soap lub-
ricating oils and pharmaceutical preparationsl What does it mean to your
cost or living that Armour makes these and hundreds of other inedible
products? Consider the matter from another angle. Study the price at which Armour buy$
and sells and study, likewise, what Armour sells. I
Armour rrnva the producer for
pound steer at the 1916 average of $7.61 per hun.
But, dressed, this thousand-pound steer weighs
only some five hundred and sixty pounds which,
at the average Armour selling price of $12.12h for
1916 up to November 1st (thetime when these figures
were compiled) brings only $67.90, or $820 less
than the cost of the live steer!
' No lope is necessary to convince you that neither
Armour nor anyone else can sell meat at a loss.
Nor does Armour sell at a loss. The four hun-
dred and forty pounds of remaining material is all used
every scrap of it Yet, the fact remains that, through
scientific study which has made possible he utiliza-
tion of inedible portions in valuable by-products,
the dressed carcass of a beef steer sells for
less than the steer cost Armour.
While this is fact perfectly susceptible of proof
were you able to watch the process, probably Mie
way here to show you that it is so, is to give you an
idea of how valuable some of these by-products are.
. Take pharmaceutical preparations, for example
sold only to the drug trade and medical profession.
They come from every kind of animals Pepsin from
the lining of pigs' stomachs Panereatin from the
hog also Thyroids and Suprarenalin from sheep
(the latter product so scarce that it requires 15,000 anU
trials to make a pound, which sells at $5,100) Ren
net from calves all these and many more, all bring
ing big prices. ,
" Or consider such items as Glue, Curled -Hair,
Bristles, Wool, Hides and Pelts, Lubricating
Oils, Poultry and Sfocfc Feeds, Fertilizers anil
many more. y. i
There is no waste in the real sense of 'the word ;
when you remember that even the tiny hairs inside
cows'ears are clipped and saved for the makine of super, v
fine brushes, you will understand the truth of this.
Only a large establishment with the Armour fa
cilities for the scientific utilization of every part
of every animal, could possibly effect these sweep
ing economies which keep meat prices at true-value
levels, uninfluenced except by the relation of demand
to supply. . .
Hence, Armour's bigness becomes of supreme
importance to the National Pocket book I
For, by any other method of handling, you
would pay more for your meats not merely a little
more but enough more to pay for that part which
under the small, local Slaughter-house system, is not
fully utilized. ' '
' Convinced of the absolute' soundness of this, it
cannot be anything but common-sense for you to in
sist that only Armour meats and food products be
served on your table. '
3(ome Sconomcs $epartmer&t
Within the last two decades, the
age-old principle of tireless cooking
has been popularized. The great brick
ovens of our American and European
ancestors utilized this principle when
the oven was healed, then rilled with
foods to be cooked in the retained
heat. The idea is very simple trap
or retain the heat so that it may work
more efficiently. The average piece of
cooking apparatus loses a great deal
of its heat through radiation. Any
fireless apparatus has one of more
layers of heat retaining material be
tween the inner chamber and the out
sideair. It is a familiar fact that cer
tain materials, notably metals, carry
away er conduct heat, while other ma
terials, such as paper, wool, wood and
asbestos, do not have this property.
The first class we call conductors,
the second non-conductors.
Homemade Fireless Cooker.
A very primitive type of fireless
cooker may be made at home by any
amateur. Naturally it is not as satis
factory as the specially manufactured
device, but it will work nicely for
simple foods, such as cereals and
dried fruits. Secure a wooden candy
bucket with a tight fitting lid. Line
the sides and bottom of the bucket
with sheet asbestos. Set a pail with
a tight fitting lid inside the bucket.
The pail should be about six inches
less in diameter than the bucket. Sur
round the pail closely with sheet as
bestos, then secure this inner cylinder
of asbestos with very strong glue or
metal fasteners. Pad the inner cylin
der at the bottom till the pail
will just reach the top of the bucket.
Fit a circular sheet of asbestos on
the padding. The padding for the
bottom of the inner cylinder and for
the space between the cylinder and
the pail is made of wet newspapers
thoroughly pounded down with a

hammer. Allow the padding to dry
for several days before using. Finish
the padding between the pail and the
inner cylinder with a ring of sheet
asbestos fitted down exactly. Line the
lid of the bucket with two sheets
of asbestos tacked on, and fasten the
lid down with two hooks such a are
used for fastening screen doors.
A simple fireless cooker such as
described here is particularly good
for a summer camp, when one does
not want to invest any great sum of
money, yet would like the conven
ience of a cooker.
Bought Fireless Cooker.
Most of the bought fireless cookers,
even of the simplest type, carry the
heat-retaining idea one step further.
The cookers are made of nonconduct
ing walls, and in addition stone plates
are used either below or below and
above the food to be cooked. These
stone plates are heated separately at
the time the food is Arst heated. Some
of the more efficient cookers of this
type will retain heat well enough to
roast meats, or even to bake cake and
pies. The' cost of ordinary cookers
ranges from $10 to $20, depending
A comparatively new idea in fire
less cookers is the combination of gas
stove and cooker. The gas stove is
constructed with a soecial oven and
one hooded burner. For fireless cook
ing the food is heated thoroughly,
then the hood is dropped over ft,
making an air-tight, heat-retaining ar
rangement. I he oven is so wen iinea

this combination arrangement saves
the labor of lifting stones and pans,

The combination of electric isots

vantage of an automatic timer. This
timer, by a mechanical device, turns
off the electric current whenever de
aired. Thus, the food is put in, the
timer set, and the housewife is re
lieved of all further responsibility.

Uses of Fireless Cookers.
The fireless cooker is invaluable
for any kind of long, slow cooking.
With the passing of the coal or wood
range in most city kitchens, it has
become increasingly expensive to pre
pare the fooda which require long
periods of cooking. With the fireless,
this type of cooking is once more in
tensely practical. Then there it the
convenience of the cooker. Foods
may be prepared ahead of time and
yet will be ready to serve hot, or at
most will require slight reheating.
Another advantage is the saving of
attention when cooking fooda that
would be apt to burn over a direct
flame. Directions for using the cook
ers vary with each type, and time for
cooking varies. The directioni given
by. the manufacturers are in most
cases absolutely reliable, for It is part
of their business to have them re
liable. In general the directions are
to heat the food thoroughly, about
twenty minutes; heat the atones for
the same length of time, and allow
the food to atay in the cooker six to
ten hours, if the simpler types of
cookers are used. Breakfast cereal
can stay in over night. The follow
ing time table may be of some value
