Louis F. Swift, the packer. The
count has been known as James
Minotto since his marriage to Ida
May Swift in 1915.
I "I am sure the department of labor
will exonerate me," said Minotto. "I

A Word to the Wise Regarding the Shortage of Rubbers
Owing to the fact that Uncle Sam has placed enormous orders for
Rubber Boots and 4-buckle Arties, to keep our soldier's feet dry and warm, all of the
Rubber Gompanies have been compelled to let the Civilian Rubber Footwear wait
until after the requirements of Uncle Sam had been taken care of.
The result is that jobbers and retailers all over the countay have
only a limited supply of rubbers—in fact they will not be able to furnish more than
one-half the usual number of pairs of rubbers and overshoes.
You, who need rubbers and overshoes will find it to your advantage to buy now and
prices listed below, you will find are much lower than asked elsewhere:
