It Is Given Before the Committee
Appointed to Investigate the Cost
of High Living.
Washington. — Formal testimony
was given before the senate commit
j tee investigating the high cost of liv
ing that cold storage is the great
equaliser of prices, while, at the
same time, au informal declaration
was made that cold storage is an im
portant and controlling factor in pro
ducing high prices.
Pierre P. Garin, prosecutor of Hud
son county. New Jersey, who con
ferred at the capital ruth Representa
tive Kinkaid of New Jersey and Sen
ator Lodge in regard to pending leg
islation to regulate cold storage, at
tacked the cold storage system and
praised the work of the investigating
John A. Kunkel of New York said
that if it were not for the cold stor
age method of keeping eggs they
would sell as low as 2 and 9 cents a
doxen during certain seasons and as
high as 75 cents and $1 in other sea
sons of the year.
He told the committee many inter
esting things about eggs. He said
New York people demanded an egg
with a white shell, while Boston used
the yellow egg shell. He said that
the latter was bertter than the white
shell egg, in that it will keep longer.
"The egg." he added, "is a foot ball
from the time it leaves the hen until
, it reaches the table.”
John J. Walton of New York in op
rosing the bill to prohibit the keep
ing of food-stuffs in cold storage for a
longer period than one year, said that
limitation would be all right for eggs,
because they had to be thrown away,
anyhow, after they were nine months
old. That was not true of butter, said
the witness.
He mentioned an instance of but
ter which had c^me from the farm
of Oliver P. Morton of New York,
that had been kept in cold storage for
three years without depreciation in
quality. Mr. Walton said the Elgin
loard was not recognized in New
York and that the so-called butter
trust was a myth.
The makers of oleomargarine were
charged by Mr. Walton with being
partly responsible for the high
prices. He declared they bought but
ter to color their product and that
their purpose was to keep butter
higher to make a better market for
their cheaper product. The witness
said prospects for lower prices in
the near future were slight.
A revolt by New York last Febru
ary against the 45-eent butter was
given as a reason for the sudden drop
of 6 cents in one day. Mr. Walton
said the people woke up and quit us
ing butter and that the sale fell off
30 per cent.

Permanent Cures, Not Temporary
Relief Result from Umted Doctors’
New Treatment.
One of the great differences in the
treatment used bv the United Doctors,
who have their Omaha institute on
the second floor of tho Neville block,
corner Sixteenth and Harney streets,
and the treatment used by ordinary
doctors, is that the United Doctors
treat and remove the underlying
:ause of the disease, while the ordi
nary doctor often only treats the
symptoms. The result of the United
Doctors' treatment is a permanent
cure. The cause of the trouble is re
moved and the patient stays welL
A case which illustrates this point
nicely is that of Mrs. R Lee of H06
Douglas street. Omaha. Neb., who was
cured last year and now, after the
lapse of all that time to test the per
manency of the cure, she is still
strong and well and writes as follows:
Omaha, Neb., Dec. 9th, 1909.
Dear Doctors:
Fbr six years I was afflicted with
stomach trouble and indigestion. Por
several years 1 could not eat anything
without great suffering and distress
and was compelled to live on milk
toast and I run down in weight to al
most a skeleton. 1 had a pasty com
plexion and bad color, and as several
of my relatives had succumbed to
tuberculosis I feared that the same
disease was to be my fate.
I began treatment with the United
Doctors in January of this year and in
three months from the time I started
in 1 was a well woman and have re
mained well ever since. I have gained
in flesh until my friends hardly know
me and am feeling fine in every way.
f can now eat anything 1 want at all
times and can sleep every night. 1
am sound and hearty and owe my
present good health entirely to the
treatment of the United Doctors,
whom I cannot thank enough for what
they have done in my case.
Britain’s Rulers.
Mr. Lloyd George is pleasantly
proud of his nationality, but it is ama
zing that ue had to go back to Queen
Elizabeth and the Tudors to find his
torical precedence for a Welsh gov
ernment of Great Britain. On the
other hand, England has often been
ruled by Scotsmen. Of the last three
premiers, two—Sir Henry Campbell
Bannerman and Mr. Balfour—were
Scotch. Mr. Gladstone sat for a
Scotch constituency, and so does Mr.
Asquith. Ireland has always been
busy supplying us with governing
men. The duke of Wellington, Lord
Roberts, Lord Charles Beresford,
Lord Russell and a dozen others
immediately occur to one. It is
odd to remember that it is cen
turies since Great Britain had a
purely English sovereign. The Tudors
were Welsh. The Stuarts were Scotch.
William III. was a Dutchman and the
Guelphs are of German descent.—

There are no pockets in a shroud, and

his money with him, why. even if he
managed to do so, it would only melt.’*

For the Old Fashioned Coffee Was ,
“I always drank coffee with the rest j

“I had been troubled some time
with my heart, which did not feel t
right. This trouble grew worse steadily. I
"Sometimes it would beat fast and ,
at otb*r times very slowly, so that I :
would hardiv be able to do work for
an he jr or two after breakfast, and if
I walked up a hill, it gave me a se
vere pain.
"I bad no idea of what the trouble
was until a friend suggested that per- i
haps it might be caused by coffee
drinking. I tried leaving off the coffee
and began drinking Postum. The )
change came quickly. I am now glad 1
to say that I am entirely well of the
heart trouble and attribute the relief |
to leaving off coffee and the use of !
"A number of my friends have aban- i
doned the old fashioned coffee and ;
have taken up with Postum. which i
they are using steadily. There are :
some people that make Postum very
weak and tasteless, but if it is boiled
long enough, according to directions,
it is a very delicious beverage. We
have never used any of the old fash
ioned coffee since Postum was first
started in our house.1*

Washington—A pension bill of
sweeping provisions. umK'r which all
surviving volunteer officers of the
United States army who served sis
months or more would receive retired
pay. according to length of service,
and all honorably discharged enlisted
men over 70 years of aye and suffer
ins a certain degree of disability,
would receive a straight pension of
ISO per month, was reported to the
house by Representative Prince of
Illinois from the committee on mill
tary affairs.
In recommend:ny the measure, the
committee's report says that although
the volunteer troops "formed 9(5 per
cent of the armies of the United
States and achieved 90 per cent of
the historic results." the regular of*
fteers have received all the honors
and rewards from the government
and the volunteer officers nothing.'*
The scale of retired pay fer volun
teer officers, as fixed by the bill, is
one-third of the initial active pay of
the corresponding regular officers, for
those who served two years or more,
and for those of less time of service
less pay in proportion. Officers who
