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.

roadway. During the last year ubout
six miles of such pavement were put
down in the county.
Mr. MeCllntoel: holds that this type
of construction is desirable where a

In the case of an old gravel or ma
cadam road which Is not worn out, 'or
a lm.se can lie constructed ut low cost.
The vitrified blocks are often laid by
unskilled labor, properly supervised,
with entirely satisfactory results.
Another type of small-block pave
ment was recently luld on the Morris
town turnpike in New Jersey, which
curries a heavy traffic. There Is a sec
tion of tills road ubout 1,'JOO feet long
having ii 7 per cent grade, where It
was deeided to try small granite
blocks in the hope tlmt their numerom
joints would reduce the tendency to
slip and skid on this rattier steep

and were laid on n thin foundation.
They were not laid in rows but
in curved line, forming a mosaic patr

Operators and Prospectors Driven
From Their Work by Threats and
Depredations of Yaquis.
Many of the lost mines of Mexico
were the result of depredations of the
Ynqul Indians. They killed or drove
prospectors from the country and ob
literated marks of the workings. Thus
iniiiiy mines, with great possibilities,
One of the mini's of the Kstrcll.i
del Norte Mining company was lost
for Jinny years. The only clue to Its
location wu- found on an old Jesuit
map, which s.tld it could be seen by
looking from a church door. The
church was found and the laud dug
up as far as could be seen from the
door, but no trace of the mine was
found. Later, after the search was
discontinued, u wull that bail bet u
built at a date later than the map,
fell down and exposed another door
Men with field glasses, looking froti
this door, discovered the old mine.
Many of the churches of Mexico
that cause the world to wonder, br
cause of their architecture and price
less ornaments, owe their existence to
mines. The Itaroyecu church, built In
ITOH, was built from the wealth de
rived from the Mluu Grande mine, In
Karoyccn mountain. Prior fto 18o0 the
walls 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 wen; of pure gold.

ago by the Chinese ami the Kgyptluns.

Figures lu a recent otllclal report to
the United Slates department of la
bor show the astounding growth of the
hospltul Idea in this country during
the last half-ceutiiry. In IS'.'t less
than 50 years ago there were In the
United States only HS hospitals; to
day there are nearly 9,100 an In
crease of nearly 11,000 per cent In the
number of Institutions. In 18";t the
total capacity of the then-exlstlitg hos
pitals was .To, 4.":i ; today the hospitals
of the country have a total capacity
of approximately StW.OOO beds an In

amount of money at present Invested
lu these institutions Is roughly esti
mated at nearly .Sl'.OOO.OOO.OOO ; the an
nual I'Npedllure for supplies, equip
ment, upkeep and new construction I
said to be about $"."0,000,000.

her idea rightly. Danny was nearer

decided. Then he hud gone awny to

As the train drew up to the llttln

She took one of the little Jitney cara
up to the bungalow.
She sent the ear buck at the curb
and wont up the veranda steps.
She sat down on the top step to pon
der on Just what window would bn
the best to break Into, when there
came the hum of a motor on the street
and a car caiue swinging leisurely
long. Someone was leaning hack nt
the wheel singing. She knew Dan'a

hall to him.

been out two days."
But Winifred felt distinctly offend

Washington," she said coldly. If Olive
nnd Chester did not care to notify her
of their wedding she would not stay
In Glrndale nt all.
"They're not going to live here. I'm
