For this pur pose, the business of Swift & Company is now di vided into three classes: Class 1 includes such products as beef, pork, mutton, oleomargarine and others that are essentially animal products. Profits are limited to 9 per cent of the capital employed in these departments (including surplus and borrowed money), or not to exceed two and a half cents on each dollar of sales. Class 2 includes the soap, glue, fertil izer, and other departments more or less associated with the meat business. Many of these departments are in competition with outside businesses whose profits are not limited. Profits in this class are restricted to 15 per cent of the capital employed. Class 3 includes outside investments, such as those in stock yards, and the operation of packing plants in foreign countries. Profits in this class are not limited. Total profits for all departments together in 1918 will probably be between three and four per cent on an increased volume of sales. The restrictions absolutely guarantee a reason able relation between live stock prices and wholesale meat prices, because the packer's profit cannot pos sibly average more than a fraction of a cent per pound of product. Since the profits on meat (Class 1) are running only about 2 cents on each dollar of sales, we have to depend on the profits from soap, glue, fertilizer (Class 2, also limited) and other departments (Class 3) to obtain reasonable earnings on capital. Swift & Company is conducting its business so as to come within these limitations. Swift & Company, U. S. A. Washington Local Branch, 10-14 Center Market D. T. Dutrow, Manager ?pondent.

It Is a favorable time for whatever ANNIE'S HOI Lete la?t night my phone rang and , little Margaret Anne'? voice came ! over the wire. I "Can't you come over to the house ! very ijuickly. Aunt Margie?'* | "What is the matter, dear, I'll come I if you need me." | "Mother 1? very 111, ?he doe? not know anyone and father Is almost crazy." ''Have you ?ent for the doctor?" "Yes. father woke me up when he telephoned." "I'll be right over, dear, as soon a? I can get the man at the garage and have him bring the electric with me.*' "All right. Aunt Margie." I tried to call up the garage, but I could get no one. Anally I succeeded In waking Dicky's nurse and we went out to the garage and got th? car ? out ourselves. Someway my mind flew to Jim Pdie snd I had a great delire to tell j the nuree to call him up after I had gone and then I thought that It was not for me to say. As I drove over to the '?Queen ' Anne" house that Tim had purchased when he first wa? made commissioner. I could not help but wonder at the great change? that had come In the comparatively few year? that had passed since Anne had com? to me that day with the black eye and had valiantly lied to me in defense of her man. I thought of Annie dear, dear coun . selor and. friend. The woman who had been more to me than any other. The steady line character who had : many times kept me from being a 1 snob, when I thought of Annie who had made more of herself than any woman I had ever known and who. If ?he were now leaving earth for the Great Unknowable was leaving behind her daughter and son to whom she had given much more than I could ever give to my son. Annie In spite of fate, made her life Just what she wanted It to be. Her children would always rise up snd call her blesssd. And then my mind ?trayed to Tim What would become of him without the sure compass of Annie's love to steer him aright? I was sur? that little Margaret Anne, or Margot, as the children called her, had absorbed enough of her mother'? teachings to get along nil right and th? boy Harry would be mothered by his sister, tat big. good natur?d lumbering Tim Lafferty, I salt very sorry for him.

There are sufficient quantities of vegetable? arriving on the mar ket to ?upply the normal week-end trade, especially If housewives are careful to ?elect those which are cla??ed aa "Abundant," or, at le??t, "Normal" In supply. If vegetables which are "Beare?" are demanded housewives must expect to pay comparatively high prices for them. It Is certainly a patriotic service to avoid using In so far aa It la pos? Bible those foods which are scarce and difficult to obtain, and to use In their places those which are plentiful. This results not only In th? prevention of waste, but siso In a fatter pocketbook for tbe consumer. ._.. A VARIETY Or PRUIT* IS AVAILABLE.

Prices on the perishable fruits and vegetables change almost dally ? contrast to the more staple foods which often remain "steady in jrlce" for several weeks at a time.
