Swift & Company's 1918 Earnings How They Affected You During the twelve months ended Nov. 2, 1918 (its fiscal year), Swift & Company trans acted the largest volume of busi ness on the smallest margin of profit in its history. Profits of the meat business under regulations of the United States Food Administration were limited to a maximum of 9 per cent on capital employed but not to exceed ZVi cents per dollar of sales. Swift & Company in the regulated departments earned 7.57 per cent on capital employed and 2-04 cents per dollar of sales, out of which had to be paid interest on borrowed money and taxes. Here is how these earnings affect you. Live-Stock Raiser Swift & Company killed 14,948,000 head of livestock, which weighed alive, 4.971,500,000 pounds.

Cost Only a Trifle Compared to Poi slble Benefit to Be Derived "Ye Happy Fields, Unknown to Noise and Strife, Tho Kind Rewarders of In dustrial Life" John Gay. There are thousands today looking for farms to buy, and with the bun drrds of thousands of acres offered for sale, there Is no lack of opportunities. Hut there are all classes of lands, good, bud, and Indifferent, much of each. The government of the Dominion of Cnaadn has no land for snle, hut with in the boundaries of the Dominion there are unlimited acres of choice land owned by railway and land com panies and private individuals. It holds no brief for any. nor are any of them clients. Hut It Is to the In terest of the Dominion to have the hun Jreds of thousands of acres placed un der cultivation, for every acre thus cul titfited adds to the revenue which helps pay the government of the country. It is with the purpose of setting forth the agricultural advantages that Can ndn. especially Western Canada, pos sesses, that attention Is drawn to the fact. The purpose Is to place before the reader truthful statements, and advise the prospective settler as to tho necessity to Investigate and In spect, leaving to his own deduction the matter of his selection. Once he de clues, the government will render him anv further Information necessary as to location, prices and value of land, and assist him In every way possible to become settled. The cost of a trip to Western Can ada, to nny portion of the three prov inces Manitoba, Saskatchewan nnd Alberta specially Indicated In this work Is but a trifle compared with the benefits that a personal Inspection may give. Therefore-the advice Is to do so. Low rates on railways will be ar ranged nnd every opportunity afforded for giving the country n thorough and careful examination. It may he that you wish an Improved farm, all ready for occupation and cultivation; you may want raw prairie, which only re quires plowing nnd tho other prepara tion necessary for a seed bed, leaving It to yourself to erect your buildings, sink your well, prepnro your garden, and ascertain how close you nre to school, church, town and market. You may wish to go Into mixed fnrmlng, combining the raising of stock with the growing of grain. In this ense you will look out for some shelter from sun, wind nnd storm, and want a farm i a portion of which may be cultivated for grain, nnd pnsturo ileitis connected ...,.1. I.. V , - - J 1 .

You may wish to go Into the raising of cattle, or sheep alone; then 1 you will care less for the open pralrlc, ' but select something that may cost you I less In the more northerly districts. No matter whnt you may want, unless It be Innd upon which to grow cotton, bannnns or other tropical or seml-trop-leal products, your Inspection trip will i reveal to you that Western Canada pos sesses possibilities beyond which nny literature you may read advises you. i Advertisement.
