J XL TTTN II u o TTt . TO Mem ster owa ranee v newsletter tor 1 nous in r our HOME MARKET FOR IOWA HOG RAISERS Chicago Firm Will Operate Waterloo Plant, for Two Years Idle. MARSHALLTOWN After having stood idle for more than two years, because the Knlish owners did not care to operate it, the Brittain & Co. pork packing house of thia city will begin operations within a month under new ownership. Negotiations just closed in Chicago have resulted in the sale of the packing plant to Roberts & Oake, Inc., a well known independent packing compauy of Chicago and rated in liradstreet's and Dun's as being worth from $500,000 to $1,000,000. The sale of the property to owners who will operate it will mean a big thing for central Iowa farmers, who, under the present restrictions placed on shipping, have no market for their hogs that can be relied upon. When finished and ready for the market, hogs are beld so mayn times until shipments can be made that shrinkage means a severe loss in profits. A home market, therefore, will benefit the farmers greatly, and especially from the fact that many have gone into hog raising more extensively at the request ofy the government, during the war. It will cost the new owners between $40,000 and $50,000 per day to operate the plant and buy hogs. AEEESTED AS A HOLDUP O'Hare Held in Connection With. Wiggcrs Murder.
