Miss Live stock is raised on the farms and ranches of the West. Meat is eaten in the large cities of the East, and by our boys in France thousands of miles away. The day of transporting live animals from ranch to seaboard and overseas has passed. There was too much waste. The modern packer locates his large and specialized plants in the producing regions.

He ships the dressed beef in refrigerator cars, and holds it in his own refrigerated branch warehouses until delivered to the retailer. For shipment to foreign ports, he transfers the meat to refrigerated ships. By means of his nation-wide organization the modern packer maintains a continuous flow of meats to all parts of the country, so that each retailer gets just the quantity and quality of meat his trade demands, and at the time he wants it. Swift Company recently shipped 1,000 carloads of meat products in one week to our Armies and to the Allies. Bridging the gap from ranch to consumer can be done successfully and at low unit costs and profits only by large business organizations.

Swift Company's profit on meat, always so small as to have practically no effect on prices, is now limited by the Government to about 2 cents on each dollar of sales.

For such information 100,000 calls are made daily in New England, the bulk of such calls coming naturally at times when it is most difficult to handle them. Service efficiency now demands that the work of the operating force should be relieved of unnecessary burdens, and that energies be directed toward the furnishing of effective telephone service, and to that alone.

Prompted by these considerations, the practice of giving information as to the time of day will be discontinued beginning June 3, 1918. New England Telephone and Telegraph Company W. R. Driver, Jr. General Manager La Marseillaise Choir Invocation Rev.

"A Hero" One isn't just a hero who has saved a person's life, Or has rescued lives of hundreds on a train; For one can be a hero in the little things of life, Such as hanging to your temper and your aim. It may be that you are angry with sister or mamma, Or perhaps you're feeling ready to give up; If you are, just hold on tighter to the rope and whistle, Ah, you will find that there is victory in your cup.
