When things are obvious, people keep looking for mysteries behind them. So it is with the packing business. The mere size of Swift & Company confuses many. Because their imaginations are not geared up to scale, they believe tljere must be magic in it somewhere some weird power. Swift & Company is just like any other manufacturing business, run by human beings like yourself; it takes in raw material on the one hand and turns out a finished product on the other. Swift & Company keeps down the "spread", or the expense absorbed between raw and finished material, to as low a figure as possible. (If it didn't it would be put out of business by others who do.) How much Swift & Company pays for the raw material, and how much it; gets for the finisheo pro-' duct, depends upon conditions which Swift & Company does not control. It depends entirely upon how much people want the finished product, and how much raw material there is available to make it from. The profits of Swift & Company amount to less than one cent per pound on all meats and by-products, less than one-fourth of a cent on beef. lllllmmmmmPJciBBp ' wSt&'LiiiiiiiHat f il33k-T - - ?iMw '-viiiiliH rBKsftwJwJ' 'iaTsiHH snHnwnnnnnnnnnnniig(,K SHsBsHislsnsnsnVsnsK am Hubbard, whose marriage toolcl place on Saturday evening at Wide- hall, the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. w'ilbur Watson Hub bard, at Qhestertown.
