Packing Plant in Business .Van's Opinion An Ontario business man, who has ideas but wanted the Editor to write them has this to say concerning Ontario's Greatest Need: "Ontario should have a meat packing plant. This would not c ly serve to give the city a pay roll but it would prevent a useless economic waste for this entire section. "Now we raise meat here, cattle, sheep and hogs. We ship them to Middle Western packing plants and then turn around and buy back, hams, bacon, dried and corned beef. Why should we have to pay freight two ways on the bacon and hams we eat? Why should not these things be made here? "There is plenty of beef and pork as well as sheep raised in this section to keep a pack ing plant busy nd beside furnishing a market for the stockmen it would furnish employment for labor here. It would make a payroll and it would develope a real big industry. "It would add a whistle to Ontario and a few whistles with the pay rolls that go with them would make Ontario the city she will nev er be without them. "What Ontario needs is a pay roll, and a meat packing plant would create one." Killlor'a Nete: Miin i..,,.is Ii.im- mem mm d llh III- ii-reat thn ui, as axpragjed trj othara in thai solama.
