   OUR DUMB ANIMALSY

                            THE   GREAT CRUELTY
          IT STILL GOES ON-THE NEEDLESS SUFFERING INFLICTED UPON OUR FOOD ANIMALS
       IN SLAUGHTER-HOUSES OF THE UNITED STATES. IT WILL GO ON UNTIL EITHER PUBLIC
       OPINION DEMANDS THAT IT CEASE OR SOME METHOD OF SLAUGHTER IS FOUND THAT
       WILL KILL AS RAPIDLY AND ECONOMICALLY AS THE PRESENT BRUTAL METHOD BUT PAIN-
       LESSLY, OR UNTIL THE DECREASE IN THE CONSUMPTION OF MEAT AWAKENS THE PACKING
       INDUSTRY TO THE FACT THAT MEN AND WOMEN WILL NOT EAT THE FLESH OF ANIMALS
       KILLED WITHOUT REGARD FOR THEIR SUFFERING. THE LONG LINE HEADED FOR THE
       SHAMBLES MOVES ON NIGHT AND DAY. IT NEVER STOPS.
          MORE THAN A DUARTER OF A MILLION FOUAUFOOTED ANIMALS ARE BUTCHERED EVERY
       DAY IN THE YEAR, INCLUDING HOLIDAYS AND SUNDAYS, WITH SO LITTLE REGARD FOR THEIR
       SENSIBILITY OR CAPACITY FOR SUFFERING THAT ONE WONDERS IF THEY ARE THOUGHT
       OF BY THEIR BUTCHERS AS IN ANY SENSE WORTHY OF CONSIDERATION SAVE FROM A
       FINANCIAL POINT OF VIEW. THIS SEEMS A HARD THING TO SAY ABOUT A GREAT
       INDUSTRY, BUT IT IS SAID ONLY AFTER YEARS OF FAMILIARITY WITH THE TREATMENT OF
       CATTLE, SHEEP, AND SWINE IN THE SLAUGHTER-HOUSES OF THE UNITED STATES.
          IF YOU WOULD STOP IT, SEND US YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS.
