BUILT ON LINES OF BEAUTY
Structures for industrial Establish-
ments Need No Longer Constitute
Blots on Landscape.
Itecent years have seen a marked
advance in the architectural treatment
of oflice buildings, shops and even
"loft" buildings—the last built essen-
tially for commercial purposes.
"Architecture," indeed, as applied to
building, has been proved a beneficial
asset rather than an esthetic ideal.
Several architects of Chicago and the
middle West have attained remarkable
success in distinctly architectural ren-
derings of factory buildings; and ar-
chitecural ideals are by no means in-
compatible with a type of building us-
ually regarded by most of us as "hope-
lessly" utilitarian—buildings for power
houses and pumping stations.
A Pacific coast architect, however,
has distinguished himself for years
by ills unusual rendering of this type
f building. "Plants," which in most
instances have been accepted as ir-
remediable blots upon their Immedi-
ate localities, have been given the
architectural dignity and grace which
are commonly regarded as the special
requisites of "architectural" buildings,
such as libraries and the like.
Perhaps the spell has been broken—
perhaps those people who need most to
dream dreams and see visions of ar-
chitectural beauty have been and are
being gradually awakened, by the pa-
tient endeavors of a few earnest and
inspired architects, to a realization
that there may be ideals in everyday
architecture—that a garage may be a
beautiful building, a storage ware-
house a structure of fine dignity and
strength, and that a factory may be
clothed in an architectural mobility of
concept which will be commensurate,
in terms of the better and final Ideal,
with the commercial significance of
the great industry which it houses.

health by this famous remedy, Lydia E.

Well to Follow Nature in Avoidance of
the Straight Line When It
Tn avoiding straight lines we must
not go so far as to violate what com-
mon sense dictates. It is not expect-
ed that a path 20 feet long running
from the public sidewalk to the front
door is capable of many or, in fact,
any curves. The shortness of the dis-
tance precludes the possibility of
these, and straight lines must prevail.
On a place of greater extent or where
*he house is situated farther from the
public highway the need of curves is
indicated, for if one having no path-
way marked out should carelessly
walk from the street back to the front
door over a freshly raked soil surface
looking backward he would discover
that he had made a line composed of j
very faint yet beautiful curves, and
| this line might properly he uti-
lized for outlining the subsequent
path. The one tiling to avoid in paths
of this kind is abruptness. It will be
noted that the course of a river con-
sists of broad, graceful sweeps, and
whereTer abruptness occurs a short
curve may be forced by the water
leaving a rocky bank or some other
natural Impediment. We should make
our abrupt curves appear equally nec-
cessary by planting a shrub, tree or
some other natural impediment. We
force them from a line of travel other-
wise necessarily straight or nearly sa

such ailments to consider trying It be-
fore submitting to such a trying ordeal.
PRETTY SHINGLE FENCE

Are the Packers Profiteers?
Plain Facts About the Meat Business
The Federal Trade Commissiou in its recent report on war
profits, stated that the five large meat packers have been
profiteering and that they have a monopoly of the market.
These conclusions, if fair and just, are matters of serious
concern not only to those engaged in the meat packing
business but to avery other citizen of our country.
The figures given on profits are misleading and the state-
ment that the packers have a monopoly is unsupported by
The packers mentioned in the report stand ready to prove
their profits reasonable and necessary.
The meat business is one of the largest American indus-
tries. Any citizen who-would familiarize himself with its
details must bo prepared for large totals.
The report states that the aggregate profits of four large
packet. *ere 1140,000,000 for the three war years.
This sum is compared with $19,000,000 as the average
annual profit for the three years before the war, making it
appear that the war profit was $121,000,000 greater than
the pre-war profit.
This compares a three-year profit with a one-year profit—a
manifestly unfair method of comparison. It is not only
misleading, but the Federal Trade Commission apparently
has made a aistake iii the figures themselves.
The aggregate three-year profits of $140,000,000 was
earned on sales of over four and a half billion dollars. It
meanj about .h-ee cents on each dollar of sales—or a mere
fiaciion of a cent per pound of product.
Packers' profits are a negligible factor in prices of live
stock and meats. No other large business is conducted
upon 6uch small margins of profit.
Furthermore—and this is very important—only a small
portion of this profit has been paid in dividends. The
balance has been put back into the businesses. It had to
be, as you realize when you consider the problems the
packers have had to solve—and solve quickly—during these
To conduct this business in war times, with higher cost*
and the necessity of paying two or three times the former
prices for live stock, has required the use of two or three
times the ordinary amount of working capital. The addi-
tional profit makes only a fair return on this, and s« haO
been stated, the larger portion of the profits earned lias
been used to finance huge stocks of goods and to provide
additions and improvements made necessary, by the enor-
mous demands of our army and navy and the allies.
If you are a business man you will appreciate the signifi-
cance of these facts. If you are unacquainted with busi-
ness, talk this matter over with some business acquaint-
ance—with your ba.ikei, tiy -and ask h'm to compare
profits of the packing indust/y with those o/ a.iy other
large industry at the present time.
No evidence is offered by the Federal Trade Commission
in support of the statement that the large packers have a
monopoly. The Commission's own report shows the large
number and importance of other packers.
The packers mentioned in the statement stand ready to
prove to any fair-minded person that they are in keen
competition with each other, and that they have no power
to manipulate prices.
If this were not true they wou'd not dare to make this
Furthermore, government figures show that the five large
packers mentioned in the report account for only about
one-third of the meat business of the country.
They wish it were possible to interest you in the details of
their business. Of how, for instance, they can sell dressed
beef for lees than the cost of the live animal, owing to
utilization of by-product3, and of the wonderful story of
the methods of distribution throughout this broad Lnd, aa
well as in other countries.
The five packers mentioned feel justified In co-operating
with each other to the extent of together presenting this
They have been able to do a big job for your government
in its time of need; they have met all war time demands
promptly and completely and they are willing to trust their
case to the fairmindedness of the Amer.can people with
the facts before them.

What'3 A Watt?
A current of electricity flowing
through a wire Is like a stream t/f \va
ter flowing through a pipe. And the
pressure of tbe water, the speed with
which It flows, we call the votls or
the voltage of electricity. And 11 ic size
of the stream of water in the ope oi
two-inch pipe Is amperes when we
measure the size of an electric current.
Jiut the actual volume of water Unit
Is flowing through the pipe is so inanj
gallons, wliile with electricity we meas-
ure in watts—so many watts for an
hour or so many watt-hours.
What It Takes.
Do not consider that a town is great
because it has mountains, lakes, rivers,
trees, or blue skies. A town is nevei

to stamp it with character and assart

than a body, and this is not less true
of towns than of persons.—Corpui
