competent and skillful hydraulic engineer
employed to sumpute the value of the
present plant and give an estimate of the
cost- of the conitructlon of a new one.

authorised to engage the service of such an
While some of the counctlmen had been
prepared for such a request, following the
visit of Engineer Styles of Minneapolis to
this city last week, they were In no hurry
to rush into acquiescing to It. They wanted
further time to look Into tha nutter them
selves and would like to be consulted as to
who the engineer should be. Others said
they did not feel like Incurring the ex
pense of engaging a presumably high-priced
engineer withuyt taking time to consider
what benefit the cly would obtain by doing
so. TBe result of. mote or less discussion
was -that the report and request of the
special committee was finally referred to
the committee of the whole.

Why Doctors Say
Drink Pabst Beer
Brratwe It Is Clean, and They Know
the Importance of Clean Food
We have found by careful inquiry that
doctors, in perhaps the large majority of
cases, prescribe Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer
because they know of Its absolute purity
and positive cleanliness. "It Is ths clean
eat beer In the world," said one of
Chicago's leading doctors the other day
when aaked about It. "What appeals to
me," he said, "is the Pabst process, jo
very different from all the rest. Ws
doctors appreciate eterilisation and we
are, teaching the people In their homes the
value of sterilisation. On almost every
visit we make we emphasise that. .1
have visited all the breweries of import
ance In the country, and I must say that
for absolute cleanliness there Is no beer
to equal Pabst. I prescribe it la my
practice and drink It myself."
In our own homes we Insist mot
strenuously upon our food being clean.
If we stop at a hotel or restaurant where
the food or the dishes are unclean, we are
quite likely to change boarding places
next time. Are we as careful of what
we drink? Purity is essential. We want
the best always and especially do we
want It if impurity or adulteration means
harm. But Is not cleanliness In the
preparation of our food or drink of equal
Importance We think so and we believe
our readers agree with us that when we
drink beer we must know It Is not only
absolutely pure and wholesome, bat thst
It Is absolutely clean. Pabst beer, aa we
aald before, la recognised by doctors as
the cleanest beer.
The aging of Pabst Beer is another point
wherein the great Pabst brewery excels.
Pabst Is the perfectly aged beer. Not a
bottle or a keg ever leavee the brewery
until science and the teet of time shoes
It fully aged and mellow.

WONDERFUL CURE BY
"Ijut vear at tins time I guffered
with a tremendous itching on my
Ick, which grew worse and aorse, un
til it spread over the whole body, ne5
only my face and bands were frVn.
For four month, or so 1 suffered the
torments of the damned, and I had te
scratch, scratch, scratch, until I bled.
At night ahon I went to bed things
got aorse, and I hud at time, to get
up and scratch my Ivody all over, until
1 a ss as sore Be could bo, and until I
suffered excruciating pain. 1 did not
know a hat it w aa, and resorted to ft
number of blood purifiers, using at
times also Cut intra .Soap. They told
ine then that I was suffering from
erjKMiia. Then 1 made up my mind
that 1 would elso use Cuticura Oint
ment and Cuticura Resolvent. I used
1 hem according to insl ructions, and very
oon indeed 1 a as greatly relieved. I
continued until well, and now I ami
ready to recommend theCuticura Rem
