Make the money you work for, work for you And

The United States Government,

a n';w Savings System, one which
haV received a spontaneous welcome from men
ard women throughout the Nation.
The System is simple. It consists of new U. S.
Treasury Savings Certificates, each bearing 4
per cent' interest, compounded semi-annually.
They mature in five years, earning 25 per cent
for that period. ,
But they can be redeemed at any time, before
maturity, at redemption prices which increase
from month to month, so that your savings earn
constantly, yet are available in emergency.
The advantages of this system are
many too numerous to list here.
But all is explained in a descrip

Savings System, as addressed below.
Note some of the outstanding ad
vantages: Any individual can buy
up to $5000 worth of Treasury
Savings Certificates of any one 'issue, and if de

person in case of death. The Certificates are

34 vs. 66
Swift's Premium Ham and Swift's Premium Bacon are
produced from only the best hogs. Many of the animals '
we buy do not furnish meat of Femium quality.
Since these are the choice cuts from the best hogs,
cured and smoked in the best way, with scientific care
and precision, they are naturally in great demand; but these
cuts, with the loin from which pork chops come, repre
sent only about 34 per cent of the live anixnaL
The rernaining 66 per cent consists of the cheaper cuts,
such as spare ribs; shoulders, trimmings, pigs' feet, lard,
eta, and shrinkage in dressing and curing. Shrinkage is
equal to one pound in each five, and has no value whatever.
That is why the prices of "Premium" Ham and Bacon
and pork loins are higher than the price of the live animal
Everybody wants them and yet they are only about
one-third of the entire weight "Premium" Bacon alone
is only about 8 per cent
The great demand for the choicer cuts, and the smaller
demand for the cheaper cuts, constitute the reason for the
comparatively higher price of the one-third, and the lower
price of the other two-thirds. (Some of the lower priced
cuts sell at less than the per-pound price of the live animal.)
It is only by utilizing all possible by-products and exer
cising the utmost skill and efficiency that we are able to
average a profit of a fraction of a cent a pound on all our

Why Telephone Dills
Are Paid in Advance
'' Suppose we charged yonr account this month with
10 cents more than yonr regular telephone rest.
Then, when yon asked about it, we told yon it was
part of the telephone bill Mr. Somebody did not pay.
What would you say ?
If we did not collect telephone rent in advance, some
people never would pay. In such a case the cost of
having furnished service, and the expense of placing and
removing the telephones, would have to be paid by other
In order that one person will not have to pay
indirectly a part of the telephone bill of another, it is
necessary for us to require advance payment for local
