Cattle Buying for
Swift & Company
_Swift & Company buys more than
9000 head of cattle,
every market day.
Each one of them is "sized up" by
the packer's buyer and the
commission salesman must judge what
amount of meat each animal will yield,
and how fine it will be, the grading of
the hide, and the quantity and quality
of the fat.
Both must know market conditions
for live stock and meat throughout the
country. The buyer must know where
the different qualities, weights, and
kinds of cattle can be best marketed
If the buyer pays more than the
animal is worth, the packer loses money
on it. If he offers less, another packer,
or a shipper or feeder, gets it away
If the seller accepts too little, the live
stock raiser gets less than he is entitled
to. If he holds out for more than it is
worth, he fails to make a sale.
A variation of a few cents in the price
per hundred pounds is a matter of vital
importance to the packer, because it
means the difference between profit

FOR WEAK KIDNEYS
Bave you ever stopped to reason why
it is that so many products that are ex
tensively advertised, all at once drop out
of sight and are soon forgojtenf The
reason is plain—the article did not fulfil
the promises of the manufacturer. This
applies more particularly to a medicine.
A medicinal preparation that has real
curative value almost selb itself, as like
an endless chain system the remedy is
recommended by those who have been
benefited, to those who are in need of it.
A prominent druggist says, "Take for
example Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Hoot, a
preparation I have sold for
and never hesitate to recommend, for in
almost every case it shows excellent
suits, as many of my customers testify.
No other kidney remedy that 1 know of
has so large a aale."
According' to sworn statements and
verified testimony of thousands who have
used the preparation, the success of Dr.
Kilmers' Swamp-Root ia due to the fact
that so many people claim, it fulfills al
most every wish in overcoming kidney,
liver and bladder ailments, corrects ur
inary troubles and neutralizes the uric
acid which causes rheumatism.

The service flag, with Its stars of

^o civil life another banner has been
needed. It Is the "Victory flag," with
stars of gold, of silver and of red. It

originator believes It should fly be

read the meanings."
A New York alderman suggested
the "Victory flag." At a recent meet

quested a resolution of appreciation
to the employers who take the boys

registering this appreciation ho sug
