Strange as It may seem, practical!
ff mutton was consumed In this conn-
try a half century ago. The reasons
'for this particular state ff affairs are
ninny. In the first place, the rem
HfftOf enr was yet unheard of, and
.i mutton would not stand MM
t llko pork and beef, It could not
bo transported to the few markets
then In existence. It can he said
with conservatism that both the do

manding bef and pork, consequent l
the meal p oduclng sections of our
country specialized In supplying these
two commodities, while mutton was
Ignored Furthermore, II kVOVOl
oped areas of th's country offered an
HOB t Iff good field for wool pro
din Hon Wool, with Its high value
per pound, small labor requirement
for production, together with tho ease
with which It could he transported,
made It an Ideal frontier crop. It
was very reasonable for the farmers
of the partially developed Mldde
to emphas'xe wool growing at
the expense of other tpyes of farming,
which were not so adaptable f the
eri.noinlc fOBdltlous of that time In
addition, the light, stringy carcasses
of the flne-wooled breeds did not pre
Kent a very tempting dish, and were
not conduslve to Increasing mutton

Newspapers are very generous In
taking up the cause of organized lab

Interests of unorganized labor.

Cor every five men employed on
trains, there aro 25 other men at work
for the 8. P. Co., and to arbitrarily
Increase thn wages of tho five by 25
"lit Is unjust.
The managers of tho railroad com
pany are Justified in trying lo prevent
an unfair and arbitrary Jump of
wages for the stnnll por cent that op
erate trains over the heads of the un
organ zed laborers
The trackwalker, the section man,
