How many times have you re
solved to have electricity in your
home "some day?" Now you
can afford it.
Not only have special rates for wir
ing been arranged for this campaign
but the three-fold economy of EDISON
MAZDA Lamps which give three
times as much light as old-style car
bon lamps will help you pay the cost.
And the whole family will enjoy the
benefit of electric service that makes
jxissible innumerable comforts and con
veniences such an the electric toaster,
flatiron, table grill and vacuum cleaner.
Let us explain the saving ycu can make

What Determines Meat and
Some stock men still think that Swift &
Company and other big packers can pay
as little for iive-stock as they wish.
Some consumers arc still led to believe
that the packers can charge as much for
dressed meat as they wish.
This is not true. These prices are fixed by
a law of human nature as old as human
nature itself -the law of supply and demand.
When more people want meat than there
is meat to be had, the scramble along the line
to get it for them sends prices up. When
there is more meat than there are people who
want it, the scramble all along the line to get
rid of it within a few days, while it is still
fresh, sends prices down.
When prices of meat go up, Swift &
Company not only can pay the producer
more, but has to pay him more, or some
other packer will.
Similarly, when prices recede all down the
line Swift & Company cannot continue to pay
the producer the same prices as before, and
still remain in the packing business.
All the packer can do is to keep the expense
of turning stock into meat at a minimum,
so that the consumer can get as much as
possible for his money, and the producer as
much as possible for his live-stock.
- Thanks to its splendid plants, modern
' methods, branch houses, car routes, fleet of
refrigerator cars, experience and organization,
Swift & Company is able to pay for live
cattle 90 per cent of what it receives for beef
and by-products, and to- cover expense of
production and distribution, as well as its
prof;!. 'ii : .all fraction of a cent per pound),
out oi I! io ctHer 10 per cent.
