or to Got
In these days of the high cost of living, when people are
watching both ends of the rope of expense, endeavoring to
make the said ends "meat", another point has been given
them to watch by hunters who are no more successful in
sseing deer than they are in seeing quarantine signs and
The conundrum which now faces the people of Custer
county is: : If six head of deer (they didn't get) costs $2,
000.00 what will a pork chop cost? In trying to figure
this momentous problem we have suffered brainstorms—
mental strains which have made us rant and tear as bad
as the editor of the Mackay Miner—almost.
That pugilistic editor has trained up to the extent where
the mere fighting of wind mills no longer seems to keep
him busy add hs has been loudly calling for the dear "pee
pul" to bring on their buzz saws, balky Fords, etc., that
he might vanquish'them and after the battle join in with
the buzzards in picking their bones dry. Let us wish him
■access—then maybe, after a while, he will get his bellv
full and like the buzzard, will cease to flap his wings ajid
squawk. Peace and tranquility will then reign over the
hills and dales of Central Idaho like a brooding dove.

What Determines Meat and
Live-Stock Prices?

Some stock mem still think that Swift &
Company—and other big packers—can pay
as little for live-stock as they wish.
Some consumers are still led to believe
that the packers can charge as much for
drcs.ad meat as they wish.
Tbh i3 not true. These prices are fixed by
a law of human nature as old as human
nature Rcalf—the law of supply and demand.
When more people want meat than there
is meat to be had, the scramble along the line
to get it for them sends prices up. When
there is morr meat than there are people who
want it tliw scramble all along the line to get
rid of it witb'o a few days, while it is still
fresh, sen is prices down.
When prices of meat go up, Swift &
Company not only can pay the producer
more, but has to pay him more, or some
other packer wijl.
Similarly, when prices recede all down the
line Swift & Company cannot continue to pay
the producer the same prices as before, and
still remain in the packing business.
All the packer can do is to keep the expense
of turning stock into meat at a minimum,
so that the consumer can get as much as
possible for his money, and the producer as
much as possible for his live-stock.
Thanks to its splendid plants, modern
methods, branch houses, car routes, fleet of
refrigerator cars, experience and organization.
Swift & Company is able to pay for live
cattle 90 per cent of what it receives for brtf
and by-products, and to cover expense of*
production and distribution, as well as its
profit (a small fraction of a cent per pound),
out of the other 10 per cent.
Swift & Company,
