Htrlko. Union labor has boon found
to bo only slightly talntod with bol
shovlsm, thoreforo the general repud
iation of the attempt to start a social
resolution. Tho wholo movomont to

European reds. Tho great majority
of all union men 'be United Stato.

Thuy are not to be deluded Into throw

rospoct because boiuo theorist tolls
them that the only way for labor to
get Us propor roward Is to Junk all
existing Institutions and make a fresh
start under an ontlroly now systom.
When tho real teat comos it will bo
found that tho Amorlcan fannor will
stand llko a rock against all the lures

shows that this elemont Is apparently
tho controlling force among tho soa

When Swift & Company
paid, say, 13 dollars per hun
dredweight for live beef cattle
last year, the profit was only
13 cents! In other words, if we
had paid ,$13. 13, we would have
made no profit.
Or, if we had received a
quarter of a cent per pound less
for dressed beef we would have
made no profit.
It is doubtful whether any
other business is run on so close
a margin of profit.
This is bringing the producer
and the consumer pretty close
togetherwhich should be the
object of any industry turning
raw material into a useful form.
This remarkable showing is due to
enormous volume, perfected facilities
(packing plants strategically located,
branch houses, refrigerator cars, etc.),
and an army of men and women
chosen and trained to do their special
