f A ' ; »V; i »*►• * v An International Service Built on Tiny Profits Per Pound Some industries have been able to get in step with war demands more quickly than others. * In many cases mighty plants have sprung 1 up—but at a prodigious cost. The packing industry was able to adapt itself to unheard of demands more quickly, perhaps, than any other industry. And this was because the vast equipment of packing plants, refrigerator cars, branch houses, etc., had been gradually developed to its present state of efficiency, so that in the crucial hour it became a mighty international system for war service. And how had this development taken place? Not by making vast inroads into the capi tal wealth of the country, but largely by using, from year to year, a portion of the profits, to provide for expansion. Swift Bt Company's profits have always been so tiny, compared with sales, that they have had practic ally no effect on the price of meat (amounting to only a fraction of a cent per pound). And yet tbe owners of the business have bees* content with reasonable returns on their capital, and have been able, year after year, to put part of tha profits back into the business to provide for its expansion. These fractions of tiny profits have been repaid to to the public many fold in the form erf better service, and better and cheaper meat, and mads it possible for Swift & Company to meet, npHanni^ the sudden cry for meat for overseas. Could industry country? Could there be a better instance of true "profit-sharing" than this return in added usefulness and in national preparedness ? any other method of financing a vital involve less hardship to the people of the Swift & Company, U.

Investigators of mining condition* and the peculiar dangers to which mfhers are subjected recently have taken much interest In the practice of Western gold miners to make pets of the rats which commonly Infest mine«. On the mother lotie of Cali fornia It haB been found that the miners Invariably feed the rats and take care of them, believing that the rodents are a source of protection against nçddent, aays Our Dumb Ani mals. This ts due, the men say, to the Instinct of the rats, which warns them when a tunnel ts unsafe. And when the rats leave a tunnel It Is almost Im possible to get the miners to work there. This recalls the belief among sailors that rats will leave a doomed ship. The Miners also have foam! that rats are much more susceptible than humans to the dangerous gases that so often cause loss of life In the mines. Long before the miners themselves are affected by these gases the rats be come sick and show symptoms of dis tress. So the men keep close watch of the rats' good health. A Supposition.
