same time, an informal declaration
was made that cold storage is an im

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
dozen 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, wbiie Boston used
the yellow egg shell. He said that
the latter was bettter 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
posing 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.
He mentioned an instance of but

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
board was not recognized in New

trust was a myth.
The makers of oleomargarine were

REAL CURES BEING MADE.
Permanent Cures, Not Temporary
Relief Result from United Doctors'
One of the great differences in the
treatment used by the United Doctors.
who have their Omaha institute on
the second floor of the Neville block,
corner Sixteenth and Harney streets,
and the treatment used by ordinary
doctors, is that the United Doctors
treat and remove the underlying
cause 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. B. Lee of 1406
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.
For six years I was afflicted with
stomach trouble and indigestion. For
several years I 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. I 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 I 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.
I can now eat anything I want at all
times and can sleep every night I
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.
Mr. Lloyd George is pleasantly
proud of his nationality, but it is ama
zing that he 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 HI. was a Dutchman and the
Guelphs are of German descent

A PENSION MEASURE
SWEEPING BILL PROPOSED
AN ILLINOIS MAN.
IT 8ENEFITS THE VOLUNTEERS
Retired Pay for Officers snd Thirty.
Dollars Monthly to Veterans Over
Seventy Years of Age.
Washington. A pension bill of
sweeping provisions, under which all
surviving volunteer officers of the
United States army who served six
months or more would receive retired
pay, according to length of service,
and all honorably discharged enlisted
men over 70 years of age and suffer
ing a certain degree of disability,
would receive a straight pension of
$30 per month, was reported to the
house by Representative Prince of
Illinois from the committee on mili
In recommending the measure, the
committee's report says that although
the volunteer troops "formed 96 per
cent of the armies of the United
States and achieved 96 per cent of
the historic results," the regular of
ficers have received all the honors
and rewards from the government
and the volunteer officers nothing."
The scale of retired pay for 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 loss time of service
less pay in proportion. Officers who
Io3t an eye or limb in the line of duty
or incurred disability as prisoners of
war would receive the full benefit of
the act without regard to length of
No officer who served more than
six months would receive less than
$400 per annum, and no officer may
receive more than two-thirds of the
present pay of a captain of the regu
lar army. A private soldier over 70
years of age will receive the $30 per
month provided he served more than
ninety days and his physical dis
ability (not necessarily of -service
origin) is such as to "require the fre
quent and periodical care and atten
tion of another person."
The report of the committee In
cludes an estimate from the secretary
of the interior, which fixes the cost of
the first year's operation of the pro
