The Farmer Receives More Than Fire
Thousand Dollars a Minute From
Swift & Company
This amount is paid to the fanner for live
stock, by Swift & Company alone, during the
trading hours of every business day.
All this money is paid to the farmer through
the open market in competition with large and
small packers, shippers, speculators and dealers.
The farmer, feeder, or shipper receives
every cent of this money ($300,000 an hour,
nearly $2,000,000 a day, $11,500,000 a week) in
cash, on the spot, as soon as the stock he has
just sold is weighed up.
Some of the money paid to the farmer dur
ing a single day comes back to the company in
a month from sale of products; much does not
come back for sixty or ninety days or more.
But the next day Swift & Company, to meet the
demands made by its customers, must pay out
another $2,000,000 or so, and at the present high
price levels keeps over $250,000,000 continuously
tied up in goods on the way to market and in
bills owed to the company.
This gives an idea of the volume of the
Swift & Company business and the requirements
of financing it. Oily by doing a large business
can this company turn live stock into meat and
by-products at the lowest possible cost prevent
waste, operate refrigerator cars, distribute to
retailers in all parts' of the country and be
recompensed with a profit of only a fraction of
a cent a pound a profit too small to have any
noticeable efiecton theprice of meat or live stock.

' Mr. A. B. Hancock, of Paris, re
ceived the .following letter from Mr.
Edward W. Hines, Chairman of the
Kentucky Council of Defense, in re
gard to the Red Cross membership
drive, which will begin on December
16 and continue through the week
to December 23:
"You are requested to lend the
weight of your organization and as
sist in all ways in the Red Cress
Membership Drive, which will take
place December 16-23, inclusive.
"A HEART AND A DOLLAR is all
that is needed. Those who have the
the first will find the latter. Those
who have the latter must find The
first. This is not a campaign for
money, but for mepabership. The,
need for our support of all Americans
in uniform was -never greater than
now. The boys have done their
work. Many of them lie wounded in
the hospitals across the sea. Many
of them are returning to this country
wounded and sick and must be nur
tured and cared for. Our Allies have
borne the brunt of the battles for
freedom. Many of them are sick and
starving. Wprld liberty has placed
a new and sacred obligation upon the
American people. This obligation can
be met in part through membership
in the Red Cross. We also owe an ob
ligation to our people at hopne who
have suffered and are still suffering
so greatly from the influenza epi
demic, and this obligation can also
be met in part through membership
in the Red Cross, as that organiza
tion ministers not only to our soldiers
and to the sick and starving in the
countries of our allies, but to the suf
fering at home.
"The co-operation of your Council
of Defense with the manager of the
Red Cross Campaign in your 'county
will help bring these obligations to
the attention of every resident.
