Tanners are receiving much less nr live hogs than Is Justified by trices consumers arc paying for inrk products," says C. II. Denman, i member of the board, ns he quotes irlces on n certain day of- last nonth. " .. : • * * '1'liese show that prices at New York retnil markets for good grade mfn cliO|)s nverage.1 26 cents a Toimrt, a reduction of 1 cents or 21 cent from t'nc price of the ami; day ono year before; limn, 22 cents a pound, a reduction of 7 1 ..; onts or 25 per cent; sliced bacon".

In tin; sums week, prices nf live logs in Chicago avenged S4.18 p;r .00 pounds, computed to S1.92 for the corresponding week in 1030, a reduction ot $3.1-1 or n )v r cent. "With nscncies between the farmer nml (he consumer making little or no reductions in thoir margins lirncllcally all the burden of supplying tlie consumei- with low- priced |»rk prodiieli Is !x-inj carried by the farmers," .says Danman. •The iKrccntagc farmers receive nf retail prices of pork products is the Miiallcst on record. Current retail prices warrant considerably higher prices for hogs than farmers are cceiving." AddrcEotng the Institute of Ain- recehtly, Denmaii called upon ihem to narrow the gap between producer and consumer. * . • * 'The livestock industry," said Deninan, "Is y entitled to n reduction in (ho cost'of meat distribution. .Livestock producers have had to bear the burden of high mer- chandizing costs since, the pre-war period. During the past two years, when all prices have declined, the fanners have received a decreasing proportion of the prica the consumers pay for meat. Thv cost of processing and me'rchnudlztng a unit of meat has declined very little from the relatively liiif'h levels prevailing before the depression. ]An undue proportion of the burden resulting from reduced consumer purchasing power is he-ing passsd on (o the farmer." , A dassic instance was died by I John Simpson of. Oklahoma City, president, of the National Farmers' Union, in his testimony before (he Senaie Agriculture Committee recently. Submitting canceled checks and sales records as evidence, Simpson developed this: VV. B. Eslcs. a shc:p raiser residing near LilUe- lon, Colo., shipped seven sh:ep to A. A. Blakely, a Denver commission merchanl. Blnkely's company so!<t two of the sheep to the Hurlburt Packing Company of Denver for Sl.25 and the olher five to Swift &• Company for $3.03 or a total of $3.30. From this there was deiuct- cd $2.55 for insurance, insi«cUon nmt commission. Sheep Raiser Eslcs for his seven sheep, got a check for tile balance, 75 cents, which he gave lo Simpson and which Simpson waved before Hie senate committee. • * * Estimates by tlie Department of Agriculture representative at tlv ! packing plant, Simpson went on, showed that the consumer would pay for llie^e seven sheep, when bnlchcred. $83.10. On a dining car near Chicago, Simpson ordered two lamb chops for his lunch. His bill was 85 rents —or 10 ccnis more than Sheep Raiser Eslcs gol for all his seven sheep. "Now- something Is (lie matter." Simpscn told th; senators. FKENCH WAR AIMS On Jan. 12, 19118, the French Chamber of Deputies adopted a resolution approving the British ancl American war aims. Previous to this, on Jan. 5, Lloyd George had set forth the . British war alms, and on Jan. 8 President Wilson hod s?l forth his ruinous ''14 points" as the American war aims. Approval of both of Iheso statements had rung through the press of America. England and France, ami had b«n denounced officially anci by the press of. the central powers. On Dec. 28. 1917; M. Pichon, as minister of foreign affairs in the Clemenceau government, had spoken in a debate in the French chamfer defining France's allltude toward Russia and the oth;r issues of the war. The action of the French chamber on Jan. 12. llien, solidified the sentiment of tlic allies as to lh»ir war aims. HUGE KCSKRV01R To safeguard Melbourne, Aus-.

W NOW \ve can advertise it' Products are nearly always put on the market before they are advertised. Quite frequently, changes have to be made in an article before the public generally will accept it. Color, design, flavor—those are some of the things the public has to be consulted about. Sometimes a product won't sell .at all and simply has to be discontinued. As soon as people show that they welcome an article and as soon as all refinements' and improvements have been added, then you could hear the manufacturer say, if you could be in his office, "Now we can advertise." When you buy advertised goods, you may know they have gone through the experimental' stages. You may be sure that the manufacturer knows they. arc right and that he is willing to stake his reputation on them. You may be confident that you aye buying goods that have sold and that would continue to sell without any advertising at all. For advertising merely lets all of the people know—now—what considerable numbers would find out by word of mouth ten years from now. \ . Of course, advertising goes a step farther. Word of mouth hardly ever tells all the uses of a product. , It often doesn't give the real reasons for its superiority. Advertising tells people all about a product and the numerous ways in which they can use it. Whatever you buy, therefore, let the advertisements be your guide. When the manufacturer says, "Now we can advertise it," you know that you can safely say, "Now we can buy it."
