OUR OPEN COLUMN. THE PRICE OF MEAT. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Albany Advertiser — 23 February 1897
OUR OPEN COLUMN. THE PRICE OF MEAT. TO THE EDITOR. SIB,-The long-suffering and patient en dnrancé of the Albany people most certainly, from the butcher's point of view, be highly commended. Here are we paying the notorious prices which we do, viz., 5d per lb. for the most inferior portion of beef and mutton, and 7d and 8d for chops and steak. For these you mnst have an extra sharp knife even to cut, let alone the question of biting it or digestion. In any of the other colonies-and I have been in all of them people can get the very primest parts of the beast at 4d per lb., whilst for inferior parts ld a lb. ia the usual price. Nor is this all. Here you cannot even get what you order. On several occasions lately the cook has been told to order a certain joint, and something quite different has been sent. Now, sir. from all I can understand, the same number of butchers made a living and did well when meat was not nearly so dear, and (he popula tion about half what it is at present. I h...

WHY NOT LlYE A CENTURY? "ID the coming time," said a famous English poet," "a man or woman eighty or one hundred years oM will be more beautiful than lite youth or maiden of twenty, as the ripe fruit is more beautiful and fragrant than tiie green: These ripe men and women will have no wrinkles on the brorr, no grey hair, no bent and feeble boiiea._ .On the contra .-y they will h*ve perfect hearing, clear eyesight, Bound teeth, elastic step, and mental vigour." Does- this sound absurd" and impossible? Why should it P People over one hundred years old are frequently met with in these days, as they have been as far as human re cords go back. A man is of no real value until he is past fifty and gained control of h e passions and acquired some practical wisdom. After-that lie ought to have from .fifty to seventy-five working years before him. Whoso dies short of one hundred (bar violence) die« of his own fol'y or that of his a cest irs.
