What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

They are all pretty much alike in the way therfeel toward their work—and that is what this ad is abou' They know iha: most people couldn't get such good mea. prorm tly and in good condition if it weren't for the branch houses of which they are in charge. They know that the branch house is one of the most important links in the chain of preparing and distributing meat for a nation. They know that Swift & Company must have its branch houses run at the highest notch of usefulness; that even a Swift & Company branch house won't run itse:f, and that it is up to the branch house man to run it properly. Any branch house man who doesn't see his work in this light is transferred to some other place with Swift & Company to which he is better adapted. They are picked men, these branch house men. Every time you sit down to a steak or chop, or cut of roast, you can give a grateful thought to the whole crew of them.
