It is a big story, taking us right back to the livestock country. The breeding of high-quality cattle is being encouraged. The sleek, corn-fed steer has replaced the scrawny animal of years ago. Assurance to the producer of a dependable year-'round market is making It profitable for him to improve the quality of his product i When it fa remembered that 80 per cent of food products are grown where less than 20 per cent of consumers live, it is obvious ' that to reduce freight prevent long-haulage loss guarantee the producer a steady, accessible market modern, scientific, sani tary packing houses must be maintained at logical points. Then, there's the vital question of nation wide distribution. This calls for an ade quate fleet of refrigerator-cars and icing stations en route so that perishable products may be delivered pure and fresh. . How efficient this system has proved fa attested by the Interstate Commerce Commission in its report of July 31, 1918, where they say: The carriers of the country could not as 11 190 74S 127 1 104 104$ 101 Vk 103 77 77? 95H 964 1124 1121 74 74 "V4 rittOMirs felHIDUCTa efficiently handle the entire refrigerator-car equipment as fa now done by the interven tion of private owners."
