JUDGE SAMPSON1 LOOMS UP Although the Republican gub ernatorial nomination is general ly accorded to Ed Morrow when ever next year's State race is discussed, it is by no means certain that he will be given a walkover for the first place on the ticket It is learned that effects have been made by Republicans all over the State to induce Judge Fleming D.

The poi it is made that Judge Sampson has never made a losing tace, aud that he has demonstrated his strength in that section of that State, where Republicans predominate especially his part in putting over Caleb Powers and Judge J.

W. Bowman Store at PONGO, Tuesday, Wednesday, PINE HILL, ORLANDO, Thursday, Are Regulated The public should understand that the profits of the packers have been limited by the Food Administration since November 1, 1917. For this purpose, the business of Swift & Company is now divided into three classes: includes such products as beef, pork, mutton, oleomargarine and others that are essentially animal products. Profits are limited to 9 per cent of the capital employed in these departments, (including surplus and borrowed money), or not to exceed two and a half cents on each dollar of sales. Class 2 includes the soap, glue, fertilizer, and other departments more or less associated with the meat business. Many of these departments are in competition with outside businesses whose profits are not limited. Profits in this class are restricted to 15 per cent of the capital employed. Class 3 includes outside investments, such as those in stock yards, and the operation of packing plants in foreign countries. Profits in this class are not limited. 1 Please meet me at the above named places to settle your taxes. YOURS TRULY, WITHERS Class TIP LANGFORD, S. R, C.

BEREA -- Non-sectaria- Total profits for all departments together in 1918 will probably be between three and four per cent on an increased volume of sales. The restrictions absolutely guarantee a reasonable relation between live stock prices and wholesale meat prices, because the packer's profit cannot possibly average more than a fraction of a cent per pound of product Since the profits on meat (Class 1 ) are running only about 2 cents on each dollar of sales, we have to depend on the profits from soap, glue, fertilizer (Class 2, also limited) and other departments, (Class 3) to obtain reasonable earnings on capital. Swift & Company is conducting its business so as to come within these limitations.

Unless every person left In America gets into the fight somewhere alonft the line, the soldiers at the front will have to fight just so much harder, just so much longer, lose so much more blood give up so many more lives.

"I am sure," Mr. Hoover wrote in concluding his report, "that all the millions of our people, agricultural as well 11s urban, who have contributed to these results should feel a very definite satisfaction that in a year et universal food shortages in the northern hemisphere all of those people Joined together against Germany have come through into sight of the coming harvest not only with wealth and strength fully maintained, but with only temporary periods of hardship.
