UNDER STRICT RULE
Larger Corporations Not Per
mitted to Make More Than
Nine Per Cent on Their
Chicago, Dec. 8. (Special Tele
gram.) The firmness of the control
which the government intends to
place over the packing industry was
shown in the detailed rules and regu
lations given out today by the meat
division of the food administration.
Every detail of the business of
both large and small packers is to be
u.uler supervision, in accordance with
the regulations drawn up under the
direction of Joseph P. Cotton, who is
at the head of Meat division. Pack
ers are classified under two general
heads: Those doing a business of
more than $100,000,000 annually and
those doing less. .The larger divi
sion includes .Armour & Co.. Swift
h Co., Wilson & Co., The Cudahy
Packing Co., and Morris & Co.
Profit Rate Fixed,
All packers are to operate under
government license and each licensee
is forbidden to make any change in
his business that will bring in a rate
profit beyond the fixed limit. The
larger packers are permitted to make
not more than 9 per cent on their in
vestment, except on by-products,
where thg limit is placed at IS per
tjnt. Smaller packers are allowed
2Yt per cent on gross value of sales.
Lines are drawn sharply between
departments of the packing business
in which food products are handled
a..d by-products which have not food
No limit is placed on raising, feed
ing amj fattening of livestock. As
some packers operate stock yards and
batiks, these are also exempted from
Limit On Salaries.
Packers are forbidden to make any
permanent additions to their plants
or any improvements which will in
crease their capital value, without ex
press authorization from the chief of
the meat division.
A check is placed on deductions
that may be written off for deprecia
tion, and it is provided that no un
reasonable salary or bonus shall be
treated as part of the operating ex
panses. The larger packers are re-

Apjwndicftls v la " primarily dua to tha j
poisons formed by decaying food In tha
bowels, t is a dlseasa canted hi improper
and insufficient bowel elimination. Many
people have only a small, passage In the
renter of the bowels while the sides are
clogged with old. stale, fermenting matter.
They may hare s bowel movement eery
; ay, but it Is not a complete movement and
he old stale matter staya in the system to
ferment and cause trouble. Besides ap
pendicitis such unclean bowels cause head
aches, stomach trouble and 99 per cent of
nil other sickness. The old foul matter
ticking- to the aides of the bowels often
stays in for months, poisoning the body
and causing that listless, tired feeling known
as "auto intoxication.' ..
HOW TO AVOID TROUBLE
The war' to avoid sickness and to keep
Mint full of ambition is to watch your
bowels. Just as you keep the outside of
yvar body clean, you should also KEEP
THK INSIDE CLEAN. It is even more
important to keep the bowels clean than it
to to keep your body washed, because the
millions of pores in the thirty feet of
bowels quickly absorb poisons generated by
lieeaytnc food left earalessly in the bowels.
Don't allow the old, fermenting, filthy stuff
to stay In your bowels for weeks, but GET
T OUT and keep it out, Remember, filthy
howels are the eaose of most sickness no
rtomach, liver or any other -organ can do its
work with a foul cesspool sending out gases
and poisons. Even if your bowels move
slightly each day, that it not enough. There
must b an occasional THOROUGH, com
plete cleansing to rid your system of all ac
cumulated, decaying matter. .
HOW TO CLEAN THE BOWELS QUICK
The MOST COMPLETE bowel cleanser
known is a mixture of buckthorn bark, gly
cerine and ten other Ingredients, put up in
ready prepared form under the trade name
of Adler-i-ka, This mixture is so powerful
a bowel cleanser that it ALWAYS does its
work properly and thoroughly. It removes
foul and poisonous matter which other ca
thartics or laxative mixtures are unable to
'dislodge. It does a COMPLETE job and it
works QUICKLY and without the least dis
comfort or trouble. It is so gentle that one
fonrets he has taken It until the THOR
OUGH evacuation starts. It ia astonishing
the great amount of foul, poisonous matter
a SINGLE Si'OONFCL of Adler-i-ka draws
from the alimentary canal matter you
would never have thought was In your sys
tem. Try it right after a natural bowel
movement and notice how much MORE foul
matter will be brought out which was pois
oning your system. In slight disorders
such as occasional constipation, sour stom
ach, "gas on the stomach" or aick head
ache, one spoonful brings relief almost IN
STANTLY. Adler-i-ka is the MOST THOR
OUGH bowel cleanser and antisepticizer ever
offered In ready prepared form. It ia a con
stant surprise to people who have astd only
ordinary bowel and stomach medicines and
the various oils and waters.
