THE STURGEON BAY ADVOCAifr, DECEMBER 24, 1914. awl Some. NO NEED TO FEAR MEAT. According to the specialists of the Department of Agriculture people, even in state’s quarantined for. the foot and mouth- disease need have no fear of eat­ ing meat, provided they cook it thor­ oughly. The foot and mouth disease is not easily communicated to human be­ ings through food, although milk from :a diseased cow might transmit the dis- : ease to a human being. In the case of milk, however, pasteurization will ren- t der it entirely safe. Human''beings who do get the disease commonly get it from direct contact with a sick animal. It is wisest, therefore, for people to keep away from animals liavihg the disease 'unless they, are properly provided with rubber gloves, coats, and boots, and these are thoroughly disinfected after each visit to the animals. In the case of meat, as in the . case of ' milk it must be remembered that all herds which .actually show the disease are quarantined, and neith...

That-something must sell for more than it costs or the result is disastrous. A good salesman is not necessarily the one who can dispose of the goods but who can dispose of them a't s a profit.
