Larus Sc Brother Company,
I wish to take thia opportunity to
tell you what I think of your Edge-
worth Plug Slice Tobacco.
I have been a pipe amoker for about
18 years and during that time have
naturally tried many different branda
and blenda of tobacco. I could not
aeem to And an ideal blend until about
six montha ago when, at the sugges-
tion of a friend, I tried a pipe of
Edgeworth Plug Slice.
I have been a conatant user of Edge-
worth since and can truthfully say
that "Day by day in every way
Edgeworth ia getting better and
You have my permission to use this
letter in any way you may desire if
by so doing it will enable other pipe
smokers to find a really cool, enjoy-
able and perfectly satisfactory man’s
I beg to remain,
^ Al. F. Whitlock.
We are indeed glad Edgeworth has
given Mr. Whitlock such unqualified
satisfaction, but we
feel obliged to side-
step his sugges-
tion that “day by
day in every way
Edgeworth is get-
ting better and
stant aim is

sands and thousands of pipe smokers
throughout the country.
If we should try to "improve”
Edgeworth or change it in the least,
we might be doing an injustice to the
men who have smoked Edgeworth
for years and years and who expect
to find it always the same good
And so we hope Mr. Whitlock will
agree with us that, all things con-
sidered, it is best for us to go on
making more of the same Edgeworth.
To add to our list of friends we are
always glad to send free samples to

Additional Amounts of Fat Found on
Large Cuts Is Also Responsible
for Prejudice Against This
Class of Meat.
(Prepared by the United States Department
The number of heavy, fed lamb*
weighing from 45 to 50 pounds dressed
weight marketed during recent months
has been considerably In excess of the
demand. An Investigation recently
made by the bureau of agricultural
economics, United States Department
of Agriculture, to determine the rea-
sons for the discrimination against
heavy lambs developed the fact that
hotels, restaurants, railroad dining car
systems and stenmshlp lines are able
to utilize heavy lamb cuts to ad-
vantage, but that the average house-
wife with a small family considers
lighter weight cuts more economical
for family use.
As a result of Improved breeding for
the production of wool and mutton,
flocks In general have Increased some-
what In average weight Producers
complain that they are unable prop-
erly to finish lambs for the market
under 00 to 100 pounds, which means
a dressed carcass weighing from 45
to 50 pounds. On the other hand, con-
sumers’ preference has turned toward
lighter cuts of all classes of meat and
for this reason heavy lamb has been
at a disadvantage. The additional
amounts of fat found on heavy lamb
cuts Is also responsible for some of
the prejudice against this class of
meat, as lamb fat Is not relished by
most meat consumers.
Heavy Lambs Worth More.
A cutting test was recently made by
the department on five light and five
heavy lambs of good grade. The light
lambs averaged 83 pounds and sold
at wholesale at 20 cents per pound.
The heavy lambs averaged 45.80
pounds and brought 24 cents per pound
wholesale. The price of the light

lambs therefore was $8.58 and that of
the heavy lambs $10.99. In other
words the heavy lambs were worth
$2.41 more than the light lambs on a
carcass basis. The carcasses were
divided Into the usual wholesale cuts,
namely rattles, racks and saddles, and
the percentage weights of these cuts
were practically the same In both In-
The rattles, consisting of the shoul-
der, neck and breast, and the racks,
of 8 ribs, were valued at 12 cents and
40 cents per pound respectively In both
cases. However, the saddles consist-
ing of the leg and loin, sold at 34 cents
per pound when cut from the light
lambs, while the heavy saddles sold
at 30 cents per pound. The higher
prices which retailers were willing to
pay for the former Is due to the con-
sumers’ preference for light legs of
Retail prices at cash and carry and
credit and delivery markets during the
same period were as follows: Legs,
35-45 cents per pound, loin nnd rib
chops, 45-00 cents; brenst for stewing,
10-15 cents; shoulders, 20-25 cents.
These prices represent the general
range covering retail cuts from light
nnd heavy lambs.
Averse to Heavy Legs.
Most retail dealers who cater to
family trade are averse to purchasing
heavy lamb except In limited quanti-
ties on account of the difficulty of dis-
posing of the legs. The grentest de-
mand Is for legs of lamb weighing
from 5% to 6 pounds. These are ob-
tained from lambs weighing from 33
■ •'//l, . .-V./jt:$/■
to 35 poundc dressed weight, whereas
a 45 to 50 pound lamb produces a leg
weighing 8 pounds or more. Some re-
tailers have attempted to solve this
difficulty by cutting off enough chops
or steaks from the leg to reduce It to
the most desired weight, and others
have made price differentials amount-
ing to fully 6 cents per pound In favor
of the heavy legs, without being able
to materially widen the outlet.
Forequarters, which are used for
stews, roasts and shoulder chops, can
easily be divided Into cuts of any de-
sired weight, and for this reason little
distinction la made In prices between
light and heavy rattles, unless the
latter are excessively fat. Further-
more, little difficulty Is experienced In
disposing of the racks when cut Into
rib chops. However, the housewife
who plans to purchase a certain num-
ber of chops for a certain number of
people dislikes to buy an extra pound
or more of meat at present prices to
provide the requisite number of chops.
This has had the effect of reducing
somewhat the sale of heavy chops, al-
though not to the extent of causing a
material difference In price.
Not Confined to Lambs.
The tendency toward lighter cuts of
meats Is not confined to lamb. As a
result of the demand from consumers
for lighter cuts, the average weight of
beef cattle marketed has been tending
lower for the past several years. Beef
producers have recognized this and
have changed their methods of mar-
Apparently the problem for the lamb
producer is to determine whether he
will realize the greatest net return by
marketing his lambs at an earlier age
and at lighter weights thereby obtain-
ing a higher price, or by producing
heavier lambs and trusting to the In-
creased weight to compensate for the
lower price per pound which he will
have to accept.

RAPID REPRODUCTION IS FACTOR
Department of Agriculture Explorers
Searching Various Parts if World
for New Varieties Adapted to
(Prepared by the United Statea Department
The rapidity with which a single
seed or head of grain reproduces Its
kind nnd becomes established as a va-
riety has made possible the great Im-
provement In many of our crops with-
in a comparatively short time. The
story of the development of Albion
oats (Iowa No. 108) from a single
hend selected In 1000 emphasizes the
enormous value that can be attached
to the finding of n single superior
plant that hns desired characteristics.
The original selection of a single head
In the experimental plats at the Iowa
agricultural experiment stntlon In 1900
was made primarily because of the
whiteness of the grain as contrasted
with the yellow hulls of Kherson, the
variety from which It was selected.
Tbs first distribution of seed was
made to farmers In 1913. Six years
later, In 1919, the United Slates De-
partment of Agriculture estimated
from reports received In response to
a questionnaire that the variety was
grown that year on 1,500,000 ncres.
Tests made In 1918 to 1917 by 208
farmers showed the yield of this va-
riety to average 4H bushels more per
acre than the varieties commonly
grown. An Increased production of
0,750,000 bushels In one year might
thus be attributed to the finding of
thl3 original head and to the recogni-
tion of its value 18 years before.
Plant explorers for the United
Stutes Department of Agriculture are
searching In many parts of the world
for new plants that may be adapted to
conditions In this country. By going
to the native home of these plants
where they have thrived for ages It Is
believed that varieties may be fonnd
which ore naturally resistant to dis-
eases of various kinds and to unfavor-
able conditions because of their sur-
vival through years of adversity.
