The company has put about four
acres of vacant land into gardens,
the products raised to be used in the
employes' restaurant at the plant,
where meals are served at prices much
lower than elsewhere.
Pension System.
The company, has a penion system
for the benefit of its employes. At
a meeting of the pension committee
at Chicago it was decided to con
tinue the pensions of all men who
joined the army and not make any
charge for the protection. In com
puting the pensions length of con
tinuous service is one oi the chief
elements. H a man is out of service
for any time he forfeits his claim to
The committee decided to permit
the men to break the continuity of
service rule and still have all the ad
vantages of the pension department.

In case of death the pension bureau
will pay their beneficiary the amount

Farm Work Not Popular.
"Nut many ot our men are leaxing
us to go on the farms. As a rule
they are not tanners, and we are not
encouraging them along this line.
Skilled laborers are needed licit to
take care oi the tanners' slock. The
men wc have lost have been replaced,
in manv caes by women, and thev
ate doing mightv good work loo. I
wish we could have women in every
department, but the business i Mich

"As yet we have done nothing, but
plans arc under consideration now j
and will soon be decided by Mr, Ar

Prohibition Means Efficiency.
".Since prohibition came our men ate
more eOieient and steady, wc have
noticed a decided improvement suuc
May 1. The men are on the job every
day now." Mr. Howe believed the
pensions of employes would be con
tinued il they went 16 war, but stated
that (his matter was also being con
sidered by Mr. Armour.
Superintendent K. L. Vhipps of
