The competition that exists
among the hundreds of meat dis
tributors, large and small, means
Rivalry in Prices
Rivalry in Service
Rivalry in Economy
Rivalry in Quality
Swift & Company sells meat
at the lowest possible price, con
sistent with quality and service.
Our profit of only a fraction of a
cent a pound on all products is
evidence of keen competition.
Swift & Company must provide the
best service to your dealer or he will
buy from our competitors. This means
a supply of fine fresh meat always
on hand for you at your dealer's.
Swift & Company must keep down
manufacturing and selling costs, and
use all by-products to avoid waste, or
else lose money meeting the prices of
competitors 'who do.
Swift & Company must make its
products of the highest quality, or see
you turn to others. This means bet
ter meat for you and a greater variety
of appetizing, wholesome food.
We are as glad for this competition
as you should be. It helps to keep us
on our mettle.

SMALL PAVING BLOCKS USED
They Are Proving Popular In Rural
Regions In Europe First Lr.ld
In New York State.
Tor n number of years country roads
In parts of (Jermuny, Austria and oth

with small cubes of stone but It Is not

use of blocks of vitrified day, meas

roadway. During the last year about
six miles of Mich pavement were put
down In the county.
Mr. McCIIutoel; holds that this type
of construction Is desirable where u
substnntlnl bnse Is already In place, as
in the case of an old gravel or ma
cadam road which Is not worn out, 'or
a base can be constructed at low cost.
The vitrified blocks are often laid by
unskilled labor, properly supervised,
with entirely satisfactory results.
Another type of smnll-block pave
ment was recently laid on the Morris
town turnpike In New Jersey, which
carries it heavy traffic. There Is a sec
tion of this road nbout l.HOO feet long
having a 7 per cent grade, where It
was decided to try Pinal! granite

MEXICO'S MANY "LOST" MINES
Operators and Prospectors Driven
From Their Work by Threats and
Depredations of Yaquls.
Many of the lost mines of Mexico
were the result of depredations of the
Ynijul Indiana. They killed or drove
prospectors from the country and ob
literated murks of the workings. Thus
many mines, with great possibilities,
One of the mines of the Kstrclla
del Norte Mining company was lost
for tinny years. Tin1 only clue to Its
location vva found on an old .It-suit
tiinii, which s:ti(l It could be seen by
looking from a church door. The
church was found ami the land dug
up us far as could be seen from the
door, but no trace of the mine was
found. Later, after the search was
discontinued, u wall that bud bei n
built at a date later than the map,
fell down and exposed another door
Men with field glasses, looking frotr
thM door, discovered the old mine.
Many of thp churches of Mexico
that cause the world to wonder, be
cause of their architecture and price"
less ornaments, owe their existence to
mines. The Haroyecu church, built In
170'J, was built from the wealth de
rived from the Mlnu Grande mine, In
Maroyeca mountain. Prior to 1850 the
vyalls were lined with sheets of pure
silver from the mine. The candela
bra, the altar rails and other parts of
the .sanctuary were of silver, and the
altar vessels were of pure gold.

GROWTH OF HOSPITAL IDEA
Value of Such Institutions in American
Eyes Is Shown by Their As
Figures In a recent official report to
the United States department of la
bor show the astounding growth of the
hospltul Idea in this country during
the last half-century. In 187.1 less
than ,r0 years ago there were lu the
United States only H hospitals; to
day there ate nearly 9,100 an In
crease of nearly 11,000 per cent In the
number of Institutions In 18711 the
total capacity of the then-exlstlitg hos
pitals was .'tri,-!."!! ; today the hospitals
of the country have a total capacity
of approximately .Si.,.,000 beds an In
crease of over 1,000 per cent. The
amount of money at present Invested
lu these Institutions Is roughly esti
mated at nearly W.OOO.tXlO.OOl); the an
nual oNpedlture for .supplies, equip
ment, upkeep mid new construction is
said to be about !7.M),0(H),I)00.

and went up the veranda steps.
She sat down on the top step to pon

came the hum of a motor on the street
and a car came swinging leisurely
along. Someone was leaning back nt
