has been worn by three generations of men and women, and with every generation has deserved
and enjoyed the reputation of being a good shoe, always honestly made from the best material.
It is sold today by more leading merchants than any other shoe
manufactured in the Northwest:
1. Because we are the only house in the Northwest which makes its different grades of
shoes in separate factories, thus insuring the highest degree of workmanship in each.
2. Because every pair of shoes we make has back of it the guaranty of more than a
million dollars capital and of more than half a century's record of honorable dealing.
o. Because we carry the largest shoe stock in the Northwest and can fill our orders most promptly.
Our factories now cover nearly seven acres of floor space, but what we are most proud
of is the qualify of our output. No house in the world excels us in this, and our persistent
policy is that in quality we shall be first.
We make shoes for men, women and children at all prices, and every shoe we make is
the best for the price. C. GOTZIAN & CO., St. Paul, U. S. A.

The bureau of animal industry of the
Department of Agriculture has Just Issued
a circular by Mllo M. Hastings presenting
the results of a study made during the last
year of the conditions surrounding the pro
duction and marketing of eggs, with a view
to determining the causes of deterioration
tn quality and consequent loss. It appears
that there la an enormous loss due to the
polling of eggs, which could be largely
prevented by Improved methods, ' and In
this artlole the causes of such loss are
tainted out and suggestions made for rem
According to Mr. Hastings the bulk of
the poultry wealth or the United States Is
to be found on the general farms of the
Mississippi valley. Some Idea of the growth
of the poultry industry on these general
farms Is shown In the case of the state of
Kansas, where exolueive poultry farms are
practically unknown, yet the value of poul
try and eggs sold has Increased over 11,000.
00U each yesr for the last five years.
' Flgares on Aotnal Loss.
The total loss to the egg trade caused by
neaaless deterioration runs into large fig
ures. ' The causes of the losses and their
estimated proportion to the total crop value
are summed up as follows: Dirty eggs. 2
per cent;' breakage, I per cent; chick de
lopment or heated eggs, i per cent;
Shrunken or held eggs. 6 per cent; rotten
eggs, 1.6 r cent; moldy or bad flavor,
f.l per cent) total, 17 per cent
The loss - from chick development or
pasted eggs Is probsbly greater than from
any other source, and Is especially heavy
during the summer in the south and west,
where It amounts to tt or SO per cent of
tha eggs produced during the heated sea
son. The responsibility for heated eggs Is
almost wholly with the farmer, although
the meal buyer and tha freight . handler
are In nowise Innocent
"To save ths millions ot dollars which
era carried down our sewers In the shape
of bad eggs," says Mr. Hustings, "we must
have first, a campaign of education
among egg producers that will show every
farmer's wife that when eggs are allowed
to remain In damp nests, under broody
bens, or In hot kitchens there Is a loss In
guallty which means an actual luea In
money to herself and to her neighbors;
and secondly, a system of buying egga that
will as nearly as possible recompense every
producer who sells eggs exactly In accord
ance with what those eggs are worth.
Above all else, the Infallible rule concern
ing the marketing of eggs Is for the
farmer to sell his eggs as soon as possible
after they are laid."
lie taller Make's Profit.
The profits of the city retailer are by
far the largest Item in the marketing of
eggs. An approximate Idea of the profits
of the various handlers of eggs may be
obtained from the following figures show
ing the elements of coet of a dosen eggs
purchased by a New i'ork consumer:
Paid to the farmer In Iowa 15
Profit of the country store 0
Gross profit of the shipper 75
Freight to New York '. ,.. 1.5
Grow profit to receiver 5
Gross profit to jobber 1.25
Ixms from candling 1.6
Gross profit of retailer 4.5
Cost to consumer 25
In the opinion of Mr. Hastings, tha great
est handicap to the egg trade Is the general
store, with Its custom of bartering mer
chandise for eggs. The storekeeper reckons
his profit on goods as more than his k
on eggs. He does not try to enforce Im
provement upon his patrons by buying
on .a quality burls, and with the advan
tage his peculiar position gives him hs
keeps the other egg buyer from doing so.

various phases of the egg Industry, and

SAINTS GO TO INDEPENDENCE
Kansas City Suburb Chosen as Next
Meeting: Place by Mormon
LAMONI. Is-, April 10. (BpeclaJ.)
Thursday and Friday's session of the
church conference of Latter Day Saints
passed rather quietly, being devoted
mostly to routine work. Tha church
recorder reported showing 8,000 baptisms
for the year, which Is considered a good
showing In view ot the fact that conversion
with this sect means considerably mors
than with other churches.
The auditing committor made report and
recommended tha adoption of certain
methods In the keeping of the financial
accounts of the bishop. This brought about
the first tilt of the meetings, when Bishop
Kelley rose to a quetlon of privilege and
made answer to certain features of the
auditor's report. The whole matter was
made a special order for April 10, when
some action will likely be taken.
Thursday evening was given over to ths
Daughters' of Zlon, an auxiliary society
among the women. A mixed program was
given partly under tha direction of Miss
Wellemeyer and Miss Oalnea, members of,
the faculty of Qraceiand college.
Independence, Mo., has been the placa
selected for tha holding of the next confer
ence. Independence Is virtually a suburb
of Kansas City, Mo., and the largest
branch of the church Is there.

favorable reports of ths benefit others had obtained

a treatment. When I had taken It only three days
I began to note signs of Improvement. I soon had a
better appetite, my digestion was good, and tue pain
