Although chilled, this meat is not frozen; hence it cannot be stored for a rise in price. A steer is dressed usually within twenty-fou- r hours after purchase by the packer. The beef is held ia a cooler at the packing house, at a temperature a little above freezing, for about three days. It is then loaded into a refrigerator car where a similar temperature is maintained, and is in transit to market on an average of about six days. Upon arrival at the branch distributing house, it is unloaded into a "cooler", and placed on sale. Swift & Company requires all beef to be sold during the week of arrival, and the average of sales is within five days. lid-ward- s. - 1 Children Cry for Fletcher's ? 111 The Kind You Have Always Bought, and which has been in use for over thirty years, has borne the signature of and has been made under his ner- -sonal supervision since its infancy.

He is one of our own Mountain boys. The nth district has never had at the hands of the Republican party of the State the recognition that it deserves. We do the voting;. We roll up the Republican majorities whenever called upon by the Republicans of either the State of the Nation. We should never let an opportunity pass to honor the sons from our section of the State. And in honoring Judge Bethurum, we honor ourselves; for he is fearless, capable, able. He is a jurist of distinguished ability, an orator and debater, with few equals in the state. He U right in h.s position on the big questions before the country. If nominated, I believe he will be able to defeat Senator Ollie James at the poles in November. The opponent of Judge Bethurum, Dr. Ben L. Bruner, is my personal friend. I would be glad to be for him under different circumstances: but, as I see it, the duty of the Republicans of the 11th District is plain, and that is to stand by Judge Bethurum, one of its own sons.
