This destruction comes through spoil
age, deteroratlon and careless hand
ling, all of which means thriftlessness.
There is not a person in America who
would willingly rob one of our brave
bovs of his breakfast. In fact we
would do anything possible to adil to
the comfort, happiness and efficiency
of these men who have proved them
selves, despite the handicap of short
training, as good fighters as the world
can produce. But through sheer thrift
Icssness our annual loss in eggs
amounts to $122,73.5,500.
One of the interesting manifesta
tions of thrift lies in the efforts now
being made to turn the former depre
dations of wild rabbits into a national
asset. In this matter we arc following
in the steps of Australia which a few
years ago had a serious problem on its
hands. But the government took the
matter in hand and the rniibils of
Australia are now a source of wealth
to the country.
There are 900,000,000 wild rabbits
in America and tlie damage caused by .
tltem has hern so great tlwt the B- j
logical Survey frequently has been
called on to give' help to Western
fanners in fighting the pests. If the
wild rabbits killed in America were
consumed as food there would be an
addition of from 200,000 to 300,000
tons to our supply while the skins
nloue would huve a value estimated at
s 20,00O,0(O. Estiiblishments are being
opened in the West where rabbit meat
is canned am! the fur is tanned.
From Alaska comes another inter
esting phase of thrift that Is as new
as It is novel. This is the successful
effort being made to utilize the rein
deer for food. The meat of tlie rein
deer Is said to be excellent fowl, hav
ing the gamey taste that is rellsheoTby
so many people. The flesh is tender
and compares favorably with beef. .
The government is importing reindeer
from Siberia in order to encourage the
industry in this country. It- is esti
mated that then? are 100,000 reindeer
in Alaska, of which number about 18,
000 animals can be placed on tltt
ni.-irkct for food supply purposes. .
The reindeer lives on lichens which
have no other value, and there is no
expense connected with placing tab
food on the market except herding, ,
sheltering, slaughtering and shipping.
These are just a few of the Inter
csting'side lights of the war. We are
going to a hard and bitter school. We
are being taught some interesting and
Valuable lessons in thrift. ' The great
question is how long will we re
member these' lessons after the days
of bloodshed and strife are over?
