FOODS? Prepared by Miaa Mlaale U
Jamison. Director of tbe Domestic
The Cheaper Cats ef Meat.
The cheeper cuts from the neck,
lower shoulder, lower round, flank
and cbuck ribs have nutritive
value, but lack In texture and
sometime* in flavor.
The value of meat mi a food de
pend*. chiefly, on two classes of
nutrient.: (1) protiena, or those
food, which build tissue and re
waste; and <*) ftit, one of the
great heat producing foods. Both
Proteins and fats produce
energy, but the proteins are too
expensive to feed for energy hence
the necessity for a mixed diet,
The mineral substance or ash is
very essential also, although it is
much less in quantity in meats
than in green vegetables and
ruits, and is a much cheaper
form ,of food as we get it from
green vegetables, showing again,
the wisdom of a mixed diet both
from the standpoint of the body
and the purse.
The chief difference to oe noted
between the cheaper and the more
expensive cuts is, not so much in
their nutritive as in their texture
All muscles consist of thread
ike tubes. These tubes or bund
le. of tube- arc held together by
connective tissue. In young, ten
der animals and in the loin cuts
this connective tissue is very easi
On the other hand- the cheaper
cuts from the neck, lotyer shoulder,
chucks, etc., are very tough, be
cause the animal, in grazing, has
used these muscles until they have
become very tough and the con
nective tissue bus become very
(b) In the case of a tough cut
after the brief exposure to a high
temperature to seal the openings
to the tubes, the texture is brought
up or retained by long, slow cook
ing as in simmering, paper-bag
and the tireless cooker. In each
<*?? the philosophy is the same as
the simmering point or cooking at
(c) On the other hand meats
cooked at a rapid broiling rate are
tough because the action of the
boiling water deatroya the texture
while the long, slow cooking not
only preaervea the texture, but
changes the connective tissue into
gelatine, or collagen.
Other methods of making tough
meats tender are (1) grinding, (2)
pounding in flour, (3) soaking in
vinegar to make soluble the con
nective tissue, (4) hanging and
freezing to develop the acids in
II. When the stock or extract
of the meat is of more importance
than the meat, put the meat on to
cook in cold water. By this
means the greater part of the
soluble proteins, the minerals and
extractives are served in the stock
Methods of KxUndio* the Flavors.
The flavor in meats depends
mainly on certain nitrogenous sub
stances called extractives and there
are various ways of bringing up
In good cuts direct rays as in
broiling retains the flavor.
In good cuts little moistur^ as
in roasting retains the flavor.
In poor cuts browning in flour
brings up the flavor.
In poor cuts b? addition of
vegetable, sauces and condiments
the flavor is brought up.
In poor cuts long, slow cooking
retains the flavor.

The. German Potash Embargo.
World* Supply of TbWImportaat Plant
Food Now Completely Cut oB
With the complete embargo
which Germany has put against
exports of potash the rising hopes
of Americaifconsumers have been
blasted and has sent prices up to
former prohibitive levels of from
three to four times normal quota
tions. It looked a while back as if
America was going to get a- fair
stock of potash but now the
foreign potash embargo is com
The United States consumes
3500 tons of potash salts per day.
Up to January 1st. the ? shortagel
in this country, due to the war.j
was over 375,000 tons, and it is
estimated that by May 1st, the
shortgsge will have increased to
about 725,000 tons. The potash
embargo will work a severe hard-1
ship on our fertilizer companies!
who have to move on a pre ar-|
ranged plan of manufacture. A
number of companies announced!
months ago, shortly after the wsr
started tTiat their Spring fertilizers
would contain on the average of
50% of normal potash content.!
Now this sudden embargo on pot
ash has made these 50% potash!
fertilizers appear very attractive. I
Reasons for Germany's imposi
tion of the potash embargo may be
based on several conditions. One
theory is, that Germany nrobably l
does not care to furnish an im
portant plant food to raise grkin
crops in the united States to feedl
her enemies. This shows, from a
I German standpoint, one of the
| most reliable from an agricultural
point of view, what a "valuable plant
food potash is. Jfc
From reports received from!
fertilizer dealers, potash fertilizers
have been advanced in price ten
per cent, for example, potash ferti
lizer that cost $20.(00 a ton before I
the war started now costs $22.00,
with the 50% lesser amount of
potash, and there is a possibility
of still further reduction of the
potash content in- the fertilizers
containing this important conaj($-1
uent of plant food. *
Our leading agficitltbral scien
tists advise the use of limes/sk
means through which the insoluble
potash in the soil -can* b<b Ifcde I
soluble and availahle as plantfood.
I Almost alt-ebijs contain potash and
i most all have enough for present
plant requirements. If this valu
able store of potash can be liber
ated and made available by the
application of lime, the average
farmer can readily make up the
balance of potash needed to insur.e
a good growth- of the better, pay I
ing crops, which are the grains.
The lime should be applied to the
soil evenly, with a lime spreader I
if possible, and let the harrow fol
low shortly after. If the soil
should be sour, and a good many
I are more or lees from the overuse 1
of vegetable and animal matter,
I the lime will, In addition, neutra
lize the acidity resulting in a more
healthy growth of the plants.

Hertford Conntj infected With
Southern Cattle Tick.
Hertford county is infested with
the Southern Cattle Tick, against
which the State and Federal au
thorities are waging a great war.
The government has found it
necessary to establish a cattle quar
antine against all couuties so in
fested. Since Hertford county is
under quarintine, it is not permis
sabl for any cattle to be moved
from this couuty into any county
that lias been released from quar
antine; in other words, to any
point beyond tbe quarantine line.
The quarantine line in this state
has been brought very c'ose to this
county. It now follows the east
ern borderof Halifax, Edgecombe,
Greene, Lenoir and Wayne coun
ties. Tbe oountieS of Greene, Le
noir, Harnett, Wayne and Cumber
land were released from quarantine
last December. There are but 28

An Open Letter From Judge
Vinborne to His Son Nov
in the Legislature.
Feb. 13., 1915
Starlet Winbobnk Esq.,
House of Representative*.
Raleigh, N. G.
1 have just read in the News and
Observer of the 13tb a publication
that three of fhe State,* Eleemosy
nary and Educational Istitutipiis
are asking from the legislature
$6^2,000 appropriations. The pur
poses for which the money is to
be used is set out in the publica
tion in the next .column. I hope
you will strongly oppose such ex
cessive and large appropriations
at this time. All these comforts,
conveniences, luxuries, are of
course very desirable, but it would,
in my bumble opinion, be unwise
ance partake strongly, '.of extraya
ganc and of a want of proper con
sideration Jfor the people, when
every bunneas is depressed, on ac
count of the condition of the coun
try, due to the European War.
When tbe prices of all farm pro
ducts are so low, when tbe farmers,
merchants, mill and factory men,
are struggling for existence. The
state's business should be?managed
just as the business of a prudent
and just man. Would a prudent
bus'iiess man in times of financial
trouble, low prices and when bank
ruptcy is staring many of bis
neighbors in tbe face, go in debt
to erect lordly mansions, buy
blooded horses, and tbe like? Let
not the creature aim to live above
his creator. Economy should be
tbe watch word of tbe legislators.
Some men when taken from hum
ble life, accustomed to few com
forts, and put in office, undergo-a
transmutation, and forget tbe
people who elevated them to posi
tion and become lordly and ex
travagant in their notions and
ideas. The people all over the
country are practicing economy
and retrenchment, as they have
not done for years. Why not tbe
state do the same? OOr people
are beayil.v taxed and burdened in
these troublesome times, and'their
Representatives should realize their
cqpditioJt .and tbe perils of the
future,, before recklessly increas
No one would be glader than I
to see all of our state institutions
comfort'provided, but I would not
kill the people or rob them to da
if. Be just to tbe institutions and
the fame of tbe state, but do the
same to tbe oppresaedirfex-payer.
I see in the paper* that an effort
i&4>n foot to abolish the Homestead
and Crop Lien Law.
I deam it unwise to abolish the
homestead exemptions. Men do
not need it so much, but it is the
chivalry of a law. It is the pro
tection of the noble womeiV and
children of the land. But if you
put iiants on women, and dresses
on men. it makes but little differ
ence what you do, in any matter.
It would be to my interest to have
it repealed agd I would favor it if
I were to take a selfish view of the
Cr?? lies law.
To repeal this would be a great
injuctice to the great mass of
our people who are tilling, our
soil. To repeal this and retain, the
landlord liens, then they would
become the slaves of the landlords,
who alone could make ? advances
with security to the renters and
tenants of our lands. It would be
a rich mine for the landlords.
I do not know your views on
these questions.-. I give you my
views and hepe you will be care
ful and guard the interest of the
people the best of your ability
which I know you will.

The claims of the institution, the
State youngest child along this
line, were ably presented by the
superintendent, the trustees and
Miss Shaw, tne paper' or the latter
being especially well prepared and
exceedingly interesting. The com
mittee seemed deeply touched by
the appeal made by Miss Shaw in
behalf of the State's unfortunate
oi?es and as Senator Gilliam so
aptly expressed it '"there is some
division among us as to whether
the women should be allowed to
rote but there is no division when
it comes to allowing them to con

tenance for the next two years and
in addition to this an appropriation
of $15,000 to pay a debt incurred
for buildings and improvement.
Iu addition to this the college is
asking for an appropriation of
