Swift & Company
Has Not "Jest Growed
Swift & Company, in fifty years of well
ordered growth, has become or >2 of the
great national services because it has
learned to do something for the American
people which they needed to have done
for them,. in the way in which they
preferred to have it done.
It has met each successive demand, in
the changing conditions of national life,
by getting good meat to increasing mil
lions effectively, efficiently, economically,
The Swift & Company packing plants,
refrigerator cars, car routes, branch
houses, organization, and personnel of
today are the practical solutions, bom of
practical experience, to the food problems
of half a century.
Because of all these elements working in
correlation and unison, Swift & Company
is able to supply more and better meat to
more people than would have been pos
sible otherwise, at a net profit per pound of
meat so low (a fraction of a cent) that the
consumer price is practically unaffected.
Strip away any portion of this vast,
smooth-running human machine, and you
make a large part of the meat supply
uncertain, lose the benefit ofhalf a century
of fruitful experience, and scatter the
intelligent energies of men who have
devoted a life work toward meeting the
needs of a nation in one vital field.

the packing indust ry will be mailed on request to

Washington.—FruinvUu Li. lloosevelt,

In Europe, described the work of the
j United States navy In the waters sur

"Our operations on the British const
are fairly well known, hut it probably
is not generally realized that on the
continent we have a large personnel
on shore and have more stations in |
; Franco than we have in all England,"
Secretary Roosevelt said.
"On the west coast of France we
have a series of bases for the repair
and upkeep of our escorting ships, de
stroyers, submarine chasers, etc.
! have been using French facilities so
I far as possible, but iu most cases we
have had to erect complete plants so
that these facilities are now more than
double what they were before we went
"All the way from the Spanish bor
der to the English channel we have
established aviation stations so spaced
that the entire coast line is covered by
seaplanes' and dirigibles,
these stations are situated at out-of
the-way points, some on uninhabited
I islands, others in fishing vessels on
; peninsulas. Lahor was almost impos
j sibl'e to obtain, so these stations were
j built almost entirely by our own sail
; ors. At each station there are from
; 200 to 300 men. This aviation force
j and our patrol vessels have been doing
i such splendid work that for the past
I six mouths there have been praetical

"At one point we have an immense
j assembly and repair base which em
j ploys more than 5,000 men. An in

of material has been utilized is found
in connection with this base where,

of the estimate of the amount of coal

TAR AND GRAVEL APPARATUS
Device Invented by New Jersey Man
ufacturer for Heating Materials
Emulating the famous hunter of the
olden days who kilted two birds with
one stone, a New Jersey manufacturer
has recently brought out a combina
tion tar and gravel henter that heats
these two dissimilar materials quite In
dependently but with one operation.
The device, which Is shown in the ac
companying Illustration, Is particularly
fitted for slreet paving where block
1 Pavements with tar joints are laid.
The apparatus consists of two main
parts, a rectangular tar kettle and a
Y-shaped gravel bln, with n furnace
extending beneath both parts, from
one end to the other. The furnace Is
tired from the gravel end of the de
I vice. The smoke and gases escape
\ through an ordinary stove pipe In the
I kettle end. The inside of the gruvel

henter Is triangular shaped while the
outside is made up in steps consisting
of perforated metal plates. The Y
shaped top nets as a reservoir bin and
the gravel feeds down the steps and
out at the bottom. The perforations
in the step plates allow the moisture
In (he gravel to escape readily as it Is
turned into steam by the heat of the
fire, thereby making it possible to heat
both tar and gravel.—Popular Science
