Swift & Company's
1918 Earnings How They Affected You During the twelve months ended Nov. 2, 1918 (its fiscal year). Swift 8c Company trans acted the larg est volume of busi ness on the smallest margin of profit in its history. Profits of the meat business—under regulations of the United States Food Administration — were limited to a maximum of 9 per cent on capital employed but not to exceed VA cents per dollar of sales. Swift & Company in the regulated departments earned 7-57 per cent on capital employed and 2-04 cents per dollar of sales, out of which had to be paid interest on borrowed money and taxes. Here is how these earnings affect you. I Live-Stock Raiser— Swift & Company killed 14,948,000 head of livestock, which weighed alive, 4,971,500,000 pounds. Swift & Company made a profit of only a fraction of a cent per pound liveweight. ! !■ Consumer— The sales of our meat departments were 4,012,579,000 pounds on which our earnings were less than A cent per pound.

Riley's verses on 'The Old Swim min' Hole' always got me," observed a friend of ours, the other day. "Be cause our old swimming hole re mains one of the sweetest memories of my boyhood. 'Beisel's Bend' we called the place—the creek made n wide curve, there, between high wooded banks, and it deepened just at the turn. When a boy could wade in breast deep to the upstream end of the 'hole,' launch himself des perately downstream, and struggle across its ten yards, dog-fashion, he belonged. Sometimes the boy got panic-stricken when his feet could no longer find bottom, and there were narrow escapes every summer, but no fatalities. "Well, I always wanted to go back to Beisel's Bend and have another swim there. I have dreamed about it for years. And last week I went. Of course the stieam looked shrunk en—I expected that ; and muddy—I remembered it as crystal-clear. But I waded in, at the upper end of the hole. The two boys with me launched themselves on their perilous passage, and puffed bravely across. Then I started. In the deepest place the old panic seized me. I» felt downward with my feet. I struck bottom. Yep—the old swimming hole i ii ii wasn't breast-deep anywhere. Darn it, I wish I hadn't gone back I"—-Ex change. GENTLE SNOOZE Lw 1 f/y.

"You don't want to stay for the pictures, do you?" asked Laura in the tone of one who expects the answer to be "No." Beth blushed. delight in motion pictures, but from the chatter about her, she gathered that It was considered childish to sit through the whole performance. Her cousin Laura seemed to regard the taste for vaudeville Itself rather In dlcatlve of elementary development. "Do you mind?" Beth asked timid , "They're Are department pictures." With a shrug of her shoulder, her She took a childish iy. cousin settled back in the seat ns the lights went out and the first picture was thrown on the screen. The prop erty man and his fellows on the stage supplied the clanging of the bells and the screech of the whistles and to Beth it was all very real. Then the street with Its engines vanished from the screen to be replaced by trusting picture of three firemen sit ting In quarters engined in a game of cards. Their faces were large enough to show the play of expression and the audience shrieked at the pantomimic humor. a con But Beth had leaned forward and was iookiflg eagerly at the screen. Lau ra tugged at her skirt, but the girl did not realize it. There upon the screen was Thad Burnham. She wus sure of It The picture changed again and she sank back into her seat quivering in every muscle. Rapidly she explained to Laura how his letters had stopped and his mother could find no trace of hrm. "His moth er's heart is breaking for him," she declared. "I must find him and tell him to write home," She left her seat and with trembling limbs started up the aisle,'Laura fol lowing her country cousin curiously. An usher directed lier to the balcony where the machine was operated, and she waited until the operator hud fin ished. He could give her little information other than to furnish her with the ad dress of the firm which had taken the pictures. She could scarcely wait until the next morning to continue lier search, and she started Immediately after breakfast with a male cousin as an escort. The manager was courteous and seemed to take an Interest In her quest. The jiictures had been made In town, he explained, and he gave her the number and address of the engine company. It was far uptown, but she could not rest and In a short time she stood In front of the tiny desk beside the glittering engine. "Is Mr. Burnham, a fireman, here?" she asked with trembling voice. The man In blue shook his head. "Tommy Burnham la with seven truck," he explained. "I am looking for Thadwlck Burn ham," she explained. "He was photo graphed here for some motion pic tures." "Wiekes, Roe and Casey posed for 'You mean that picture," he declared, this?" He took down from the wall a small framed photograph, evidently an en largement of the picture film. "That's Thad," she cried, of It," I'm sure "Call Roe down," commanded a voice behind her. The fireman sprang to salute and Beth turned to face a kind ly-faced man with gold Instead of sil ver buttons, and crossed trumpets on his cap front. "Stand where you will be In the light," directed the newcomer, as he stepped Into the background. Wonder ingly she obeyed his directions as In answer to the call a man same sliding down the brass pole. Before she could speak he had turned around and came toward her. "Hello, Beth," he cried. "Where did you come from?" "What Is your name?" demanded the battalion chief. Instinctively the man's hand went to salute, and he gave a puzzled laugh. "It's Burnham," he said, "yet I know I'm called Roe. What's the matter?" "You remember the Jane street fire In the shop where you worked?" sug gested the chief. Thad nodded. "But you forgot that in jumping to the net you fell short and struck on your head. When you came out of the hospital you had forgotten who you were." "I remember now," Thad exclaimed. "The boys were Interested in me and kept me going until I could get In the department. You gave me Richard Boe for a name, eh?" "I saw you in the pictures at the theater," Beth explained. "I knew It was you." "Which Is more than I did," he laughed. nearly a year now. Beth nodded, as his voice faltered. "She Is alive," she assured, "but very lonesome. She thinks you are dead." The chief stepped forward, going up to see the foreman," he said huskily. "Put In your application for leave and I'll see that headquarters grants It." He stamped up the stairs, and Thud turned to Beth. "Have you—" - "I've been waiting, too," she assured him as her hand stole Into his.
