AUTOMOBILE INDUSTRY WILL SHOW BIG
DEVELOPMENT FROM HUGE WAR IN FRANCE
Careful mothers know that Cascarets in the
home mean less sickness, less trouble, less worry,
less cost. When one of the kiddies has a white
tongue, feverish breath, sour stomach or a cold, a
Cascaret quickly and harmlessly 'works" the poi
sons from the liver and bowels and all is well again.
THE DAILY CAPITAL JOURNAL; SALEM. OREGON THURSDAY, JANUARY 2, 1919
TO MOTHERS! While all children detest castor oil, calomel,
pQla and laxatives, they really love to take Cascarets because they taste like
candy. Cascarets "work" the nasty bile, sour fermentations and constipa
tion poison from the child's tender stomach, liver and bowels without pain
sr griping. Cascarets never disappoint the worried mother. Each 10 cent
box contains directions for children aged one year old and upwards.

The average American is open
minded. American business is conducted by
true Americans of vision, open-minded
men who believe in their country and
strive to meet their country's needs. The
men in the packing industry are no
exception to the rule.
The business of Swift 8c Company has
grown as the nation has progressed. Its
affairs have been conducted honorably,
efficiently, and economically, reducing the
margin between the cost of live stock and
the selling price of dressed meat, until
today the profit is only a fraction of a cent
a pound too small to have any noticeable
effect on prices.
The packing industry is a big, vital
industry one of the most important in
the country. Do you understand it?
Swift & Company presents facts in
the advertisements that appear in this
paper. They are addressed to every open
minded person in the country.
The booklet of preceding chapters in
this story, of the packing industry,
will be mailed on request to
