Mutton and lamb have always
been regarded as particularly
wholesome and there is reason
for this belief, as shown by work
of the Depart ment of Agriculture.
Of the two meats lamb has been
the more popular in the United
States in recent years, perhaps
because special attention has been
given to raising it for the market
and to extending its season. On
the other hand, mutton is the
favorite in England. The whole

than beef. Buying in quantity
is recognied as economical where
the housewife has facilities for
storage. There are many cases
where a side of mutton could be
economically purchased for home
use where a side of beef would
be too large for such a purpose.
This would imply an economy in
the selection of the mutton.
As regards digestibility, there
is no practical difference In beef
and mutton, both being very
thoroughly assimilated. The
characteristic flavor of mutton is
commonly said to have its origin
in the fat. It is generally re
lished, and may be developed or
modified by various methods of
cookery fo meet the tastes of the
family. That mutton fat can be
used in the household in many
ways has been demonstrated by
experiments which have been
made with it.
The ways in which mutton can
be prepared for the table are
very numerous. Some of these

discovery of a joker in House
Bill No. 449, which creates the
office of County Attorney in each
county of the state not hereto
fore having a resident Attorney,
has brought about a threat to in
voke the referendum on the bill.
The law provides that the Gover
nor shall appoint the incumbents
for the new offices and that they
shall hold office until the election
in 1916. This places the Gover
nor's men in office for practically
a four-year term, in spite of the
fact that the next general elec

also permits the Governor to fill
vacancies in all other counties,
his appointees to hold office, as
in the other cases, until 1916.
The statement is made that a
petition will be prepared and
filed before July 1, when the
