deuce is visiting friends here
this week. Mr. Cross is
quite a Bible student and
marvels greatly that minis
ters claiming to be rilled
with the spirit and called of
God to preach the glad tid
ings, and yet find so muoh
time to mingle with things
of the flesh, Fuoh as, "acting
as a judge at a baby show or
leg lace." We are inclined
to believe that Brother Cross
is just a little cross with the
preachers. The notion that
preachers are in any degree
superior in gracs and good
ness than the average man
has almost ceased to exist
and in fact are generally re
garded as being very, very
human.-Falls City News.

two years ago he was in tho
transport service, later going
to the Panama canal zona.
He will be well remembered

Swif t & Company
At a recent bearing of the Federal Trade Commission there
was introduced correspondence taken from the private tiles of
Swift & Company,which showed that the Company had been con
sidering for some time an educational advertising campaign.
The need ferthis publicity has been apparent to us for sevk
eral years. Tho gross misrepresentation to which we have
recently been subjected has convinced us that we should no longer
delay in putting before the public the basic facts of our business,
relying on the fair-mindedness of the American people.
The feeling against the American packer is based largely on
the belief that tbe income and well-being of the producer and
consumer are adrersely affected by tha packers' operations,
resulting in unreasonably large profits.
Swift & Company's net profit is reasonable, an represents
an insignificant factor in the cost of living.
For the fiscal year 1917 the total sales and net profit of Swift
& Company wer at follows:
$875,000,000. 1 " I
$34,650,000. D
This is equivsdbssoa $3,465. profit on a bufe- of $87,500.
