'Armour & Comoarjypork.-
A11 of which sound? highly
prqper at firstglance.. The people
liave beea waiting f 6r, a long time
, to see Armour & Company get it
where Mary-wore the beads. But
there are a lot of 'peculiar things
about these various indictments
and suits against Armour & Company.-.

ing of the interstate laws in re

Ogden "brushes" his hair."
So long a? Armour & Company
are.prosecuted, it's all right with
us. We'll live in the hope that
their prosecution will perhaps
bring down the price of meat a
little. But nevertheless, these
peculiar, things are worth point
ing out, in these beautiful days
before an election.
