What would you consumers think
of a wheel without spokes ?
What would you think of a man
who would take any or all of the spokes
out of a wheel to make it run better?
Swift & Company's business of
getting fresh meat to you is a wheel,
of which the packing plant is only the
hub. Retail dealers are the rim—and
Swift & Company Branch Houses are
the spokes.
The hub wouldn't do the wheel
much good and you wouldn't have
much use for hub or rim if it weren't
for the spokes that fit them all together
to make a wheel of it.
Swift & Company Branch Houses
are placed, after thorough investiga
tion, in centers where they can be
successfully operated and do the most
good for the most people at the least
possible cost.
Euch "spoke" is in charge of a man who
knows that he is there to keep you supplied
at all times with meat, sweet and fresh; and
who knows thet if he doesn't do it, hi* com
petitor will.
How much good would the hub and the
rim of the Swift "wheel" do you if the spokes
were done away with ?

S. C. I).
The following poem was Written by
a soldier named Sampson and sent
by John Selby from France to his sis
ter Mrs. Kverett Barton.
Note: S. C. I). (Surgeon's Certifi
cate of Disability) is used by the
doughboys as a noun, adjective or
verb. A sick or wounded man gets
his S. C. D... is an S. C. D. or becomes
S. C. D. These men are given light
work to do behind the lines.
They have marked me S. C. D. now,
and sent me to the rear;
As soft and easy berth as man could
want;
No midnight raids, no shell bursts
and no gas attacks to fear,
You would think I'd rest contented
but I can't.
I'm eating food that's fit to eat, and
sleeping 'neath a roof,
No job in all the army soft as mine;
But I'd sooner huve my dug-out, tho
it's only splinter proof
And the gruelling work we got out
on the line.
I his being S. C. D. is no disgrace, (
But it makes 'me feel so miserable to
think I couldn't stick
And some other man is up there in
my place.
I know I've got it soft enough-I guess
I shouldn't kick;
Perhaps he's "standing to" tonight. !
while I lie here in, bed,
Or bringing ammunition from the
truck,
flr on patrol cross No-Man's Land; j
where 1 should be instead
Of being here a-cussing out my |
luck.
It's funny when you're up there, how
you long to get away,
And for the rear you gladly hit the
track.
But when you've been back here a
week or so you say

That the only thing you want is-to
get back.
To get back to the trenches, and the
fury of the fight
Where every second has it's share
of strife;
The whistle of the shells o'er head,
excitement day and night—
Of course it's full of danger-but it's
Life.
Sometimes you feel just full of nerve;
there's time? you're awful
scared,
But you find satisfaction in each
thrill,
For you know you've done your dem
dest, and, back home 'mongst
those who cared
You've earned respect, and honor,
and good will.
That's why I'm discontented-why I
hate this easy game;
There is no satisfaction here for me;
Some like this life behind the lines
but honest! It's too tame.
My God! I wish I wasn't S. C. D.

"When the frost is on the punkin'
And the fodder's in the shock—"
These beautiful lines of Riley's recall a mental picture of
purpling autumn; of the harvest moon and nature's fulfill
ment of her generous promise. They also convey to the
forehanded farmer the bleak winds of winter and the dis
. comfort of drifting snow.
Have you made provision for THE COMFORT OF YOUR
STOCK? Aside from the merciful consideration a farmer
has for his livestock there is always confronting him the
question of DOLLARS AND CENTS. A leaky roof, sides
unbattened, a poorly constructed foundation; any or all of
these things have a tendency to reduce PROFITS.
Comfortable stock is PROF
