N'urse Jane Fuzzy Wuzry, the musk

"Much better," answered Uncle

Uncle Wlggily. "Why, the sun is

and we may have a last April shower
for luck. Better take your umbrella."
"No, thank you," said Uncle Wlg
gily. "I don't believe Til need it."
So off he started without his um
brella to buy some boardwalk sou
venirs for the animal children at
home. Nurse Jane finished her break
fast, but when she started out she
took her parasol.
"For." said the muskrat lady with
a switch of her tail, "we may get a
last April shower after all."
Uncle Wiggily hopped on and on,
over the sand and along the board
walk, and he bought lots of pretty
little toys for the animal children at
home. Afetrward he and Nurse Jane
would sort out the different things
tor tne auierent nays and girls.
Finally when Uncle Wirnrs
pockets and paws were as full as they
could be, he walked past a little old
dog fish on the board path. The dog
i on was selling mown np toy circus
"Buy my balloons! Buy my bal
loons:" barked the little old dog fish.
"They make nice little souvenirs to
take to the children at home. Buy
some of my balloons!"
"No, thank you," said Uncle Wlg
gily. "I have all the souvenirs I
need. I don't want any balloons!"
And then the poor old dog fish be
gan to cry.
"What's the matter?" asked Uncle
un. no one win buy my balloons,"
said the sad dog fish. "They are such
nice balloons too and "
And then, all of a sudden, the last
April shower, which Nurse Jane had
spoken of. came peltering down. Un
cle Wlggily started to get all wet,
and so did the nice souvenirs he bad
bought, and he would have been badlv
soaked, only the dog fish quickly
"Come. Uncle Wlggily. Get under
my bunch of balloons with me. They
are of rubber and the water can't get
inrougn inem. Tne da noons are as
good as an umbrella. Come in. Uncle
Wi11y out of the wet."
"Thank you." said Uncle Wlggilv.
"I will." and he did. -And the tov bal
loons being of robber, kept off all
the drops of the last April shower, and
Mr Longears and the souvenirs
weren't wet a bit. And the bunny was
so thankful after the last shower that
he bought a dozen souvenir balloons
to help the poor old dog fish, who
didn't cry any more.
So this teaches us that It can
sometimes rain the last dav of April,

live-stock Taisers naturally will receive
less for cattle.
If fanners are paid more for live stock,

Swift & Company pays for cattle approximately
90 per cent of the price received for beef and
by-products. The remaining 10 per cent pays for
dressing, freight to market, operation of distributing
houses, and in most cases, delivery to the retailer.
Net profits also have to come out of this 10 per cent
This margin cannot be squeezed arbitrarily without
danger of crippling the only effective means of performing
the complex service of converting cattle into meat and dis
tributing this meat to the fighting forces and to consumers.
Swift & Company's net profit on beef during 1917 vm
only of a cent per pound. On all products, it was
a little less than four cents on each doQar of sales. Com
plete elimination of these profits would not affect appreciably
retail prices of meat, or farm prices of live stock.
Swift & Company will be glad to co-operate in devising
methods that will improve conditions in the meat and
live stock industry.
