Who Travel for The Bee
R. C. Howe, general manager of

distribution has developed to such an
extent that they can handle all of
V these products at a minimum expense
through their branch house system

"Where they do not manufacture the
food products themselves, but buy
f-om .manufacturers and canners, they
. insist on a uniform product of first
quality, so it will be up to Armour
standard of products in other lines.
"Armour & Co. today are not
only a meat packing institution, but
they are general food purveyors, han
dling all kinds of food products.
"They desire, so far as possible, to
protect the retailer, both in quality
, and price, and their system of adver
tising, which coveres every field in
the United States, is of the greatest
value to the trade.
"Because of the great volume of
business that goes through their or
ganization, it can be readily seen thai
' this increased line of food products
can be handled at a minimum ex

, living in the vicinity of Twenty-eighth
