The Farmer's
Share
Live stock is marketed from
farmer to consumer at a lower
cost than almost any other farm
product.
The United States Department cf
agriculture reported in 1916 that the
farmer gets for his cattle "approxi
mately two-thirds to three-fourths" of
the final retail price paid by the con
sumer for the resulting beef.
Under normal conditions, the farmer's
share of retail prices of various farm
products is approximately as follows:
Butter
CATTLE
Eggs
Potatoes
Poultry
Fruits
71 per cent
66 to 75 per cent
65 per cent
55 per cent
45 per cent
35 per cent
The difference between farmer's price
and retail price represents the necessary
expenses of packing, freight and whole
sale and retail distribution.
Swift & Company not only performs
the manufacturing operations of pre
paring cattle for market in its well
equipped packing plants, but it pays the
freight on meat to all parts of the
United States, operates 500 branch
distributing houses, and in most cases
even delivers to the retail butcher. All
this is done at an expense of less than 2
cents per pound, and at a profit of only
about l of a cent per pound of beef.
Large volume of business and expert
management, make possible this indis
pensable service to the live-stock raiser
and to the consumer, and make possible
the larger proportion of retail prices
received by farmers.

Are Common in Western Canada
The thousands of U. S. farmers who have accepted
Canada's generous offer to settle on homesteads or buy
farm landT in her provinces have been well repaid by
bountiful crops of wheat and other grains.
Where you can buy good farm land at $15 to $30
per acre get $2 a bushel for wheat and raise 20 to
45 bushels to the acre you are bound to make money
that's what you can do in Western Canada.
In the provinces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan or
Alberta you can get a
KOr.IESTEAD OF 1G0 ACRES FREE
and other land at very low prices.
During many yeara Canadian
wheat fields have averaged 20 bushels
to the acre many yields as high as
45 bushels to the acre. Wonderful
crops also of Oats, Barley, and Flax.
Mixed Farming is as profitable an
V industry as grain raising. Good

Van Vivier's
Scoop
By F. M. GILMER
1
(Copyriaht, Western Newspaper Inlaa.)
Existence, as I'hlllp Van Vlvler
planned It, was to ho a very pleasant
affair, though It had little enough
about It of that strenuous life ho ar
dently advocated liy Mr. Itoosevelt. Ho
had youth, and health, and wealth, and
ho pictured the future a gay kaleido
scopic mingling of golf, and polo po
nies, and grand opera, and littlo sup
pers after the play.
Then, too, to crown It all. there
was Madge. Madge, tall and slight,
and svelte, with the tawny gold in her
holr, and the eyes that changed with
evtsy changing thought that were
as blue as summer skies when
sne smiled, and crew block as
midnight when she thrilled to any
deep emotion, riilllp could hardly re
member a time when he had not loved
her. They had grown up, boy and
girl, together, with something slngu
larly similar In their fate. I!oth were
orphaned children, left to the unten-
der caro of unwilling relatives, and
Philip never forgot ' the moment of
their meeting. His uncle's place ad
joined that of Madge's guardian, and
he had been wandering atiout the
ground n forlorn nnd lonely childish
figure, when he first came upon the
little maid. She gave one long look
at his somber face, and mourning
clothes, and then with the swift and
Intuitive sympathy that God gives
to even the youngest child, she went
op to him.
"Little boy," she lisped, for she was
scarcely more than a baby, 'little boy,
is 'oo lonesome, and doesn't nobody
love 'oo?"
"No," he nnswered with a sob
from the depths of his heart.
"Don't c'y, little boy," she comfort
ed, slipping her hand In his. "I Mil
love 'oo and 'oo won't never be lone
some nny more," and, Indeed, It seemed
to Philip he had never been lonesome
again. There was always Madge.
But who may count securely on the
future? Move the kaleidoscope evr
so gently, and Its figures change. One
turn of the hand of fate nnd the bright
picture one's dreams painted are shat
tered forever. There came n day when
Philip had to do, not with visions
of a golden future, but with a hard
and merciless present. Suddenly as
nn unexpected thunderbolt came the
failure of the trust company In which
his fortune' was Invested, and he
awoke one morning to find himself
that most pitiable of all creatures on
earth the man who needs money, nnd
knows no way of earning it. lie had
taken the blow standing, with a smile
on his Hps, like the thoroughbred he
was, and Just how deep the hurt went
none knew. ,
'Pleasant prospects," was his sole
comment, with a shrug of his shoul
ders to those who would have con
doled with him on his loss, "a beer
Income, nnd a champngne taste. Do
you happen to know the best way to
adjust them?"
He might meet the situation with
laughter and scoffing so far as others
were concerned, but when It came to
Madge It was another thing. "I enn't
ask her to marry r. beggar," he said
to himself, setting his teeth, and with
a face as white as death, "and I'm not
poltroon enough to settle down and
live on her money," and there had
been a terrible scene In which he
had told her this, and released her
from her promise to marry him.
"Oh, Philip, Philip," she cried,
clinging to him, "what good Is all my
money to me if I can't make things
easy for you? Surely there Is more
than enough for us both."
Then he tried to explain to her,
blunderingly and haltingly, that some
thing that Is dearer to man than even
love of woman that something which
he must have, or die of self-loathing
his own self-respect.
"I couldn't live without It, darling,"
he said at last, passionately, "If I gave
in to fate without one struggle, and
was content to let you support me, I
should imagine your contempt for such
a weakling In every tone of your dear
voice. I should see It in every glance
of your dear eyes. No, no, I must make
my fight and win my place In the
world of men, or I will die fighting on
the battlefield. If I succeed I will
come back to claim my own. If I
fall, a better man wins. Don't you
see how It must be that way?"
And In the end Madge "saw." The
sympathy that always understood oth
ers was part of her charm, and Philip
went away.
At college he had rather distinguish
ed himself by some clever skits In
the college journal, and so It seemed
natural to him to turn to Journalism
as the most available way of settling
the bread and butter problem. A
friend obtained a place for him on the
staff of tho morning Asterisk, where
he began at the bottom of the repor-
torlnl ladder, tun! It-timed iinng oiliri

advancement comes slowly In n news
puper office, and to Philip Madge
seemed nn immeasurable distance off,
when suddenly ho made his great
scoop. It was tho merest accident
successes mostly are, If we knew the
truth of them. One evening ho was
wulklng along one of the fashionable
residence streets when suddenly he
was startled by a scream, nnd looking
up ho saw a woman with the wild
eyes and cunning of a maniac sitting
on the very outer coping of the walls
of a tall house, where she waved her
arms gleefully, and leaned dizzily for
ward to peer Into the street below.
In an instant all the mystery of the
drawn blinds, and Jealously guarded
doors of the mansion, at which many
had marveled, was revealed. Here
was one of those family tragedies, at
which the world guesses some poor
crazed creature.
It had taken Philip but an Instant
to realize the scene, and with n sud
den Inspiration he dashed past the
servant in the d'lorwny, and up the
Stairway. The cruzed woman was still
young and pretty. A dainty silken
robe, and a filmy lnce scarf blew about
her. Evidently she was a woman of
fashion and society, so the thoughts
flew through his mind as he dashed
up t!jo three nights of steps nnd
through the open door In the roof
through which she hud evidently
climbed, no knew well enough he
might be going to his death, but he
only smiled a little grimly, nnd moved
on towords the pathetic figure sway
ing on the ledge of the wall. The
woman looked up at the sound of nn
approaching step. She saw a hand
some young man a young mnn such
ns she vaguely remembered In that
world that was not all horrible dreams
nnd padded walls coming toward
her. When he reached her he made 8
courtly bow, and offered her his arm,
nnd without one protest, mechanically,
naturally, as if they had been on the
ballroom floor, she arose and put her
hand within It, nnd together they start
ed toward the house, trending the
narrow lodge, whose outer edge was
death. A single push of the crazed
woman's feeble hand and mutilation
waited for them below, but there was
not n tremble In the man's voice as he
asked her:
"And what did you think of the new
tenor this winter at the opera?"
In the street below the crowd stood
silent, tense with excitement, until
they saw Philip hand the woman, still
with courtly grace, through the door
in the roof, and then It broke Into tu
multuous cheering.
As for Philip, his one thought was
to get to the office. His part in the
adventure appealed to him not at all.
It was what any fellow would have
done, he thought, and he could leave
that out, but he realized the value of
the story. The secret of the darken
ed mansion. The closed blinds. The
beautiful woman, with her wild, mad
eyes it was full of color, It was pic
turesque. Resides it was a scoop. No
other reporter had been there, and a
coop Is ns dear to the newspaper
heart as a first-born to a mother.
There Is, perhaps, no other Joy In
life equal to that of the young
writer who reads his own productions
In type, and Philip's first con
scious act the next morning was to
reach for the paper. He had expected
his story to be given some prominent
place; perhaps to be featured. To his
dismay It was not even printed. Ho
looked the paper over twice to have
suspicion deepen into certainty. It
had been left out. How long he might
have stared at the paper In bewilder
ment he never knew, but that two let
ters caught his eyes, as they lay upon
his table. One was from the city ed
itor of the Asterisk, and he pounced
upon It for an explanation.
"Dear Van Vivier," he read, "sorry,
but your scoop was scooped. The dis
tressed damsel you rescued Is old La
Roux's daughter, and La Rous, as you
appear not to know, Is the heaviest
stockholder in the Asterisk. Natu
rally he wanted your story killed. Vir
tue Is rewarded, however. He sug
gests you for night editor In place of
Clarson who has resigned. Report
for duty tonight"
The other letter was from Madge. It
said :
"Dear rhilip : I have heard of your
rescue of poor Fannie La Itoux. How
could you be such a hero, and such
a goose as to take such a risk? You
need a guardian, sir, and I am going to
marry you to take care of you on this
day one month. Tou can't refusa a
lady, you know. Yours, Madge."
Philip read the letter twice, and
then he bowed his head on the table,
and when he raised It his eyes were
very dim and tender.
