Swift & Company's
How They Affected You
During the twelve months
ended Nov. 2, 1918 (its fiscal
year), Swift & Company trans
acted the largest 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 ZVi 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
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
The sales of our meat departments
were 4,012,579,000 pounds on which
our earnings were less than cent
The per capita consumption of meat
in the United States is given as 170
pounds. If a consumer purchased only
Swift & Company's products he would
contribute only about 78 cents a year,
or VA cents a week as profit to the

Inspection of Choice Farm Acres

Happy Fields, Unknown to Noise and
Strife, Tho Kind Rewarders of In
dustrial Life" John Gay.
There are thousands today looking
for farms to buy, and with the bun
drrds of thousands of acres offered for
sale, there Is no lack of opportunities.
Hut there are all classes of lands, good,
bud, and Indifferent, much of each.
The government of the Dominion of
Cnaadn has no land for snle, hut with
in the boundaries of the Dominion
there are unlimited acres of choice
land owned by railway and land com
panies and private individuals. It
holds no brief for any. nor are any
of them clients. Hut It Is to the In
terest of the Dominion to have the hun
Jreds of thousands of acres placed un
der cultivation, for every acre thus cul
titfited adds to the revenue which helps
pay the government of the country. It
is with the purpose of setting forth
the agricultural advantages that Can
ndn. especially Western Canada, pos
sesses, that attention Is drawn to the
fact. The purpose Is to place before
the reader truthful statements, and
advise the prospective settler as to
tho necessity to Investigate and In
spect, leaving to his own deduction the
matter of his selection. Once he de
clues, the government will render him
anv further Information necessary as
to location, prices and value of land,
and assist him In every way possible to

so. Low rates on railways will be ar
ranged nnd every opportunity afforded
for giving the country n thorough and
careful examination. It may he that

and ascertain how close you nre to
school, church, town and market. You
may wish to go Into mixed fnrmlng,
combining the raising of stock with the
growing of grain. In this ense you
will look out for some shelter from
sun, wind nnd storm, and want a farm i
